something that you must watch ;)
Goodness, it's been a long while since the last time I showed up on here... So much is going on in the family that I barely have time for myself... But...
Last January 8th, the owner of my wedding venue got married to his beautiful wife. They invited us to their gorgeous wedding who turned out to be the most beautiful ceremony I have ever seen, not to mention a wonderful reception!
They made this video a few days later, they also went to Venice as my hubby and I did and look what a wonderful video it came out... Love love love love it!!!
What do you think?!?
Isn't Venice the most romantic place in the world?!?
Happy Birthday Auntie Aimee!!!
Lets all wish our wonderful friend Aimee a very Happy Birthday!!!
She has always been so supportive and caring for all of us, that she really deserves the best...
Not to mention we arepen friends since we were about 15, so we have been looking at ourselves growing up and well... so much we have done, right Aimee?!?
I am so happy Giovanni has a wonderful auntie in Canada!!!
Hope the 26 will bring her everything she wants:)
Hugs and kisses
1st Year Anniversary
from you and me to family
A little bit late, but I want to share my Anniversary date with you all.. A little over one year has passed ( 09/09/09) and everything seems so different and yet so wonderful in my life!
On July 15th I gave birth to our first son, Giovanni. A little Miracle in our hands... When we got married we both agreed on having kids soon. We didn't want to set a date on when to have our first one.. But when I got pregnant we were so surprised... Never expected to be as soon... We were very lucky!
During pregnancy, everybody was telling me it would be a girl and inside me I was really happy... "wow, a baby girl to treat like a princess"... I knew Mirco would have loved to have a baby boy and well, we waited till the end to know if it was a boy or a girl and when we found out it was Giovanni... Well, I was the happiest woman ever... I made Mirco such a great gift, right?;)
As for our first Anniversary, we stayed all day with Giovanni, going to the mall ( teh only place where we knew Giovanni wasn't too cold or too hot) and we had planned a dinner out for two for the night. Mom was supposed to stay with Giovanni... Unluckily I got a bit sick and i was really too tired to go out for dinner... Not too bad, we just spent some more time with my family and Giovanni.
I hope we will find some other time to spend sometime just the two of us... lol...
Anyway, if you have a look at the first pict( the three of us), I am wearing the necklace he got me for our Anniversary. OIt is a white gold necklace, with a pendent on it. It seems like a one and has three brillant on it: one year, we're three... that's what Mirco meant to say;)
I got him a very nice watch that he can wear on special occasions... I really like it a lot... I wanted something that he could save trhough the years... and a watch seemed to be the best thing to do...
What do you think?
What about my baby boy?
And the big one with his hair long?!?
Have a great Planning and a wonderful day!
090909bride:It's a boy and I am a mom:)
Giovanni is born on July 15th at 11.11p.m.
10 months and 6 days after Mirco and I exchanged our vows, a little miracle has come in our life: welcome Giovanni!!!
Giovanni was born on July 15th at 11.11p.m. after a few hours of labour... I gave him birth in the water. An extraordinary and still unbelieable experience that I suggest to anyone...
He has brought a ray of light in our families... My mom is at Seventh Heaven, she couldn't wait... It seems she has another child now...
My in laws are over happy since they wanted a boy and the boy has come... We thought it was a girl, tho... It is so funny... When Giovanni came out of the water, I haven't asked for the first min. if it was a boy or a girl, it was the last of my thoughts... Then, I asked and they said: it's a boy!
I was sooooo surprised, but really it was the best surprise in my life! I love him so much...
Now I love two men... ah ah ah... my hubby and my baby boy...
Thank you all girls for the comments you have posted in the previous posts and thank you Aimee (aimee114) for your entry... Giovanni sends you kisses from Italy... Love his Canadian auntie :)
Babies are gifts ... Thank you God for the greatest gift we could ever expect !
we got our wedding video back... It turned out wonderful !!!
A few left to finally welcome our first child... Mirco and I are getting super excited and extremely anxious... Anytime can be the right time... And this makes me really stressed...
Just think... You plan a wedding and you know exactly the day, the time, the party ( more or less)... Something can go wrong but eventually you can plan most of it... When it happens with the delivery of a baby, you don't know the day, the time, where you are and how things will be going... This stresses me so much... Oh goodness...
Anyway, as a Wedding gift one of the best men and my maid of honor have hired a videographer for our Wedding Day. We have waited for the wedding video for ten month (lol), and last week we got it back... You know what, all the time waiting, it all worth it.... I have never watched anything similar. I love it so much!!! I could watch it over and over again. He captured everything important in the celebration, party, details, etc. We are so happy, really!!!
I can't stop thanking Francesco and Sara to have given us such a a great gift, cause these memories will remain for the rest of our life :)
My advice to the brides to be is to find a good videographer and spend a few money on it... It is something priceless and timeless :) You could add it to your wedding gift list, so maybe you can save that money...
We weren't really satisfied with the picts, but now we know we can have thousands of picts taken from the video and I am so happy of this !!!
Since the wedding video is about a hour and half long, I can't upload it over here, so I will try to upload part of the little clips that my brother has taped during the Wedding Day...
Ask a Question
From the married ladies to the brides to be: advices on how to have a happy marriage :)
It's almost ten month I am a married woman... wow, time flies!!!
This makes me wonder if there is any tipe or advice us married ones who still love to blog over weddingbycolor could give all the brides to be.
Even if it is not specifically for their Wedding Day, but for their future together with their husband.
Here it is mine:
anytime it is possible, take sometime just for the two of you. It may be a week end together ( that doesn't necessary mean spending a lot of money), or a date out, or simple a night walk. Sharing moments of cuddles and kisses once you are married will make you remember your first dates, your first heart beats. You will find yourself at the beginning again... And this is really helpful, especially when things may get complicated or stressfull...
What about you?!? I am really happy to know what do you think...
Also, these are the latest picts I have taken of the belly ( 20 days to go, now 17!!!!) during our last week end at the beach... We really enjoyed being just the two of us :)
Ask a Question
how did you pick your Bridesmaids/ MOH?
Gosh, I can't believe it's July already... almost 10 months I have been married to the love of my life and almost a mom ( 23 days to go is everything goes as planned!!!).
The topic of the day is:
How did you pick your wedding party?!?
Especially, the girls?!?
And to the married ladies, have you kept in touch since the wedding or not?
I can tell, I still hang out and talk so much with my moh, who has also recently graduated from University (YAY for Sara!!!!) and we held a great party for her success ;)
On the other side, I haven't kept in touch with the other two girls... About one, it was my choice not to keep as much in touch, as I really didn't like her attitude and I found out our point of views in life are completely different. Plus, I don't like how she talks bad about everything and everyone... Such a bad way of living your life, right?!?
The second one, well, she hasn't called or kept in touch with me at all, not even after I told her I was expecting. She completely changed since I got married. I simply know that she changed not only toward me, but also with all the other friends. I tried to keep in touch for a few months, but then I realized that after all, it's her life and if she is not interested, I shouldn't bother her as much...
Anyway, I guess it is still all part of life changes after wedding... You enter another world...
Now the answer is up to you...
Have a great day !!!!
NWR : pregnancy
Belly is growing
I know it's not wedding related, but I wanted to give you a little update about my pregnancy...
... Everything is going fine so far, the baby is growing up fast and big (he/she weights 1,750 kg. with two months to go)... 39 cm. and always kicking... One of the best experiences in a woman life, really!
I am always thinking of all of you getting ready for your Big Day and also to the married ones...
We are such a great community that I can't really find any other appropriate blog community to join to share my married life... lol...
Have a great day and Happy planning!!!
bridesmaids dresses: check it out!
How's the planning going?!?
Yesterday watching youtube, I came across this wonderful video, that may help many brides who like to work on DIY projects and are on a budget... It basically teaches you how to make a pretty dress spending less than 10 dollars.
I directly thought of all of you... It may be used as a bachelorette party dress, as a reharsal dress, etc. Plus it is all home made :)
Let me tell you if you're gonna try this... I may have to wait until my little Bean is born before trying to make one myself... LOL... It may be too complicated to sew one right now...
Happy planning everyone!
