MY WEDDING: This is our story.
Isaiah and I were married January 23, 2010. It was a very small intimate wedding. We were married by my mom's bishop, Bishop Manutau and after the ceremony we went to eat at Buffet City. It was so low key and so US. We aren't into planning big parties or even making a big deal out of things. We are simple, easy going people and that's how I like it. (we're so simple that my dress only cost a whopping $50, pretty great huh? especially since I was only going to wear it once!!) A lot of my friends that didn't attend or even know about it were upset because they wanted to share our special day with us. I honestly didn't think it was a big deal until my brother Tory told me that one of our cousins was mad we didn't say anything. I told him it wasn't a big deal and he looked at me, shook his head and said, "T, it is a big deal." Oops, I didn't realize, when we are sealed in the temple then we will let everyone know!! Weddings were never really a big deal to me. In Young Women's I always said I would wear sneakers under my dress. In my head I was a bridesmaid four times last year and seeing all the planning and the stress my friends felt, I thought I'd pass on that. So needless to say, my wedding day was perfect! I didn't plan a thing, I didn't even plan what day we'd get married. Zeeky's parents chose a weekend they'd be able to come and that was that. How easy right? Like I said in a previous post I am OCD about odd numbers but 01/23/10 was the best day ever! At Buffet City we had our cousins, siblings, aunts, uncles, and even our parents did a little number for us. I couldn't have imagined it any other way. Zeeky's cousin Cambria and a couple of girls from her Tahitian group did a special number for us. It's a lei ceremony they do and the story they tell in dance is absolutely beautiful. I just want to thank both families for their love and support. We wouldn't be where we are without you all. We hope you all know you guys mean the world to us. We don't care for riches or material things, we know who we are and what we stand for. For those of you who weren't there, we still thank you for the impacts you have had in our lives. To teachers, to coaches, to YW/YM leaders, to church leaders, to old bosses/co-workers, to fellow schoolmates, and companions; you all mean more to us than you'll ever know. We are grateful and SO blessed. Our family means a lot to us and they did an amazing job in portraying what we are all about with our wedding. I loved it! The food was good and the company was even better. Here are some pictures of our special day:
