Happily ever after starts one year from today


The Crane Estate
















on me: re-worked vintage dress (last seen here & here, before here), Barneys Co-op sandals, Saks bracelet, Tiff&Co. ring
on him: J.Crew shirt & shorts, Sperry boat shoes, Rolex Daytona watch


Since I last talked about our venue, Darren and I wasted no time to secure the space. We went back the following weekend for a second look and finalized our contract the same day! So, for about a month, I've been dying to share these pictures with you guys, but I was waiting for the perfect moment. The timing couldn't be better because today marks our 1 year pre-wedding anniversary. One year from today, Darren and I will officially be man & wife! Our happily ever after starts one year from today.

  6. Khatu, I've always loved that maxi dress ever since first seeing it in pictures. Kind of funny that you look like a princess with this maxi dress, and the blog post's title suggests a fairytale. You're certainly beautiful regardless. Once again, my congratulations go out to both of you on being ready to tie the knot and be happily married.

  25. These photos make me sad that our preacher had messed up and didn't bring our marriage certificate paperwork with him to our ceremony and we missed out on prime daylight hours to shoot in the gardens at our castle.

    I think I need to go back there soon and take pics...

    Congrats, Tu. Saying yes and getting married was the best decision I ever made.
