Kevin and I got married on Saturday, July 19th, 2008 in Rockwall, Texas. We were fortunate to have many of our family and friends there to celebrate with us. We had a lovely church ceremony with a simple “cake and punch” reception, then headed to my mom’s house for an outdoor after party celebration- complete with a live band, tons of food & drinks and all the people we love. Although my sweet dad passed away only 8 weeks before my wedding, I know he was there in spirit. In the weeks leading up to my wedding I prayed and prayed that the Lord would give me peace and help me to fully enjoy my special day instead of being sad. He answered my pray- it was one of the best days of my life.
After the celebration, Kevin and I were picked up by a limo and taken to the beautiful Crescent Hotel in downtown Dallas to stay the night. The next morning we headed to Riviera Maya/Playa del Carmen, Mexico for a week of relaxation. We stayed at the all-inclusive El Dorado Royale resort- it was amazing and we hope to go back again one day.
