I’s Married Now!!! AKA Marriage, Day 8

Hello World,

The last time I blogged which was on Wednesday, Aug. 7, I was a single woman getting ready to be married on Saturday, Aug. 10…Leading up until the actual ceremony, I was pulling all-nighters trying to get everything done before the big day, particularly as we were flying out to Hawaii, the state where President Obama was born and raised, the next morning at 7:59 am!

So because you are my people, I have decided to share some of photos with you leading from the morning of the big day throughout our honeymoon…It has been a wonderful week…my best week ever…

  1. Thank you for sharing the honeymoon pictures. I am looking forward to future blogs on the adventures of Jackie and
    Robert!

    • Thanks Nae! Our theme was tropical Georgia peach so we tried to incorporate ideas from southern and Jamaican weddings…Handing out rum cake at a wedding is a Jamaican thing…Next project: moving in together:)
