The Bride Wore Red… Happy 1st Anniversary to us!

itsnasb wedding
Shoutout to my girl, Nico, and her goodaz mommy for getting us this fitting wedding cake topper!

One year ago today, I said “I do” and “I will” to Mr. D. What a year it’s been. We’ve already been through so many changes, it should feel like longer than a year but this honestly feels like it crept up on us. This post isn’t so much about our love as it is about sharing a few pics of our wedding day especially since my red dress was such a hit for those who have seen it. We haven’t shared many pictures, to date and I’m only going to post a few more here. I’ll do my best to put even more on a Pinterest board (you can follow me there from the link at the end of the post). I hope you enjoy. Tell someone you love them today, in honour of me and Mr. D.

To Mr. D: you’re the most wonderful man I know. I really could not have created a better spouse. Props to your parents and everyone else who had a hand in making you who you are. You’re my ultimate favourite. Let’s ride til the wheels fall off and after that, take a stroll hand in hand. I love you. I choose you.

Back to you, the readers and why you’re here. Just so you know, the pictures were taken by our (friend and) official wedding photographer- Darien Robertson and our unofficial but no less stellar photographer (also friend)- Dale-Anthony Hines. My dress was made in TWO days by a wonderful Jill of all trades- Christina Campbell. We “planned” this wedding in about two weeks and we could not have done it without our friends and family- we married now so it’s ONE family, woohoo! You’ll only see a few of them in this post because I’d legit post about 80 pics if I didn’t set some restrictions. So I’m only mostly posting the ones of just me and Mr. D.

Now onto the rest of the pictures! (more…)

BETMB: T-9 days. It’s just hair (Wedding edition)

By this time next year, I should be married and I am exc— let me find another word– I am tickled purple! I haven’t begun making a lot of plans because I have never been the type of woman who gets fired up about wedding stuff. I don’t know why- my mother clearly didn’t pass on that gene. I know a few things I want and don’t want and that’s about it.

  • I don’t want to be a Bridezilla (I would be mortified if I just catapulted to the other end of the bride spectrum)
  • I don’t want a huge shindig
  • I know the type of dress I want
  • I know I want some twerking to happen

One thing I don’t know that I wish I did is (more…)
