This wasn't a reception ballroom. We were no longer in Texas. And this was not just a staircase. No, no, no...just beyond the cascading vine drenched steps was a whimsical fairy tale wonderland, reserved only for most royal of guests. Beauty only dreams were made of. Most of the decorations, from the smash hit "Sweet Shop" to the glowing centerpieces, were hand-crafted with love by my family and friends.

And that's a wrap folks! Thank you so much for joining us for #thinkingihedigbo Wedding Week! We planned nonstop for eleven months for one day, a day I will carry with me for a lifetime. I still remember my parents tucking me into bed as a little girl and praying for my future husband. Today, I look back on my June 16th and smile on the promise I made to the man I waited my whole life to meet. At the end of the day, albeit the grandeur, the wedding is but the hors d'oeuvres.

Marriage is the main course.
