Real Weddings: A Day in the Sun

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Armando and I have known each other since the 7th grade, where we met in Ms. Gallegos’s English class. We completely lost touch with each other after high school, until one fateful night when we ran into each other at our hometown bar. We got to know each other again over spicy tuna rolls and Sapporo, and the rest, as they say, is history!

When we started planning our wedding, we knew our extra-small budget was going to be a challenge. We also knew that we wanted our day to be casual and fun, with good music, games, and yummy food, surrounded by our friends and family. What fun is a wedding if it’s not a reflection of you as a couple?
