No food recipes today- but today’s post is still pretty important to me and since I did mention it to you all, I did want to share some of it with you.
See, last week, my twin sister Jasmine got married. It was a wonderful day,filled with a lot of smiles, joy and family. Just the way it should be. I’m really happy for Jas and her husband Josh, and I’m glad that I got to be apart of their special day.
(Although, being her twin, it’s not really like I had much of a say in the matter).
The Happy Couple at the Rehearsal Dinner. It was a Mexican restaurant called Aldaco’s Taco Bar that I’d never been to before. Having tried the food, I can now safely guarantee that I will be back. Normally I’m not even a fan of Mexican food, but this was GOOD.
There’s a really ‘funny’ story behind this program. Jas had originally decided on some program print-outs from Hobby Lobby, but decided two days before the nuptials that she hated them (and they ‘were’ pretty awful to be honest). So me and my Ashley, our older sister and co-MoH, along with our amazing wedding coordinator came through in the clutch for her to get these custom made for her by a SUPER designer who was willing literally do these overnight. Let’s give her a round of applause, because she’s DEFINITELY the real MVP. They were done the day before the wedding.
Talk about last minute.
When Jas and I first got to the church on Saturday morning, we had some quiet time while we waited on the hair stylist and makeup artist to get there, so I made her put up her hood and pose so I could get this shot. The Quiet Before the Storm.
And, the After. Come on, I mean…let’s just all agree:
Isn’t she THE most beautiful bride you’ve ever seen?

The Bridesmaids. I’m the devious looking one on the right who didn’t want to show teeth.

One layer was Red Velvet. One layer was Raspberry. One layer was Chocolate. Options FTW.
Maids of Honor on fleek. I showed teeth in this one.
Pictures alone really can’t do a day like this one justice. One of the best feelings is when you get to share such an important event with someone that you love, and it all goes well.
Congratulations to Jas and Josh. Love you guys <3
(Don’t worry. I’ve got another recipe coming up for your guys very soon ;-))
