Wow! What a year 2012 has been!
When John and I got engaged on Thanksgiving 2011, it was the perfect way to kick off a new and exciting year. In March 2012, I started Fit 2 Be Wed, it was the perfect addition to my personal training business. It has been AMAZING sharing with you my own personal fitness journey to the altar. I set goals and hit some bumps along the way but kept with it. I changed my eating habits to strictly paleo, which is still going strong. I can’t see myself going back to eating dairy or processed foods because I feel amazing. I focused on building muscle for a toned lean look and lost 8 pounds along the way. I tried new things like boxing and added in extra days of high intensity interval training. Yes, there were days when I felt like going home from work and going to bed! I had my end goal in mind and stuck to it! Now it’s time to gear up for 2013 and new goal setting! Fitness and a healthy diet is something that should last long beyond the wedding day.
We had such an amazing time in Mexico and could not have asked for a more perfect day. I feel so blessed to have been able to spend a few days with all of our friends and family at one of our favorite places, Le Blanc Resort and Spa. I could tell everyone was relaxed and enjoying themselves. John and I were stress free and were really able to have fun and cherish all of the weekend events.
It was really amazing to see all of the hard work and planning finally come together. We could not have done it without the help from family and friends and a few extremely talented individuals.
A HUGE thank you to Allyson Dietsch of Everything Promised Events. Ally is wedding planner extraordinaire! She is so amazingly creative, organized, and professional. Ally is always one step ahead and thinking about any issues that could arise before they do. I could really let loose and relax knowing Ally was in charge. The weekend would not have gone as smoothly without Ally!
We were SO fortunate to have the amazingly talented, Mike Busada, shoot the whole weekend! It was a dream come true to have him photograph our special day. From the moment John and I met Mike he put us both at ease and we knew he was the one! There are photographers who can make people feel awkward about getting their pictures taken but not Mike. I think his calm and down to earth demeanor give him the ability to capture people at their best. His photos speak for themselves. AMAZING! Mike captured exactly what this weekend was all about love, fun, family, and the beauty of Mexico.
Christine Penny, make-up artist and owner of Angelberry Organics joined us for the trip too. She is a true artist! Talk about making a girl feel her best! Christine made me feel gorgeous for every wedding event. Her products are amazing, light weight, and organic. Christine creates each product with quality, thoughtfulness, and glamour in mind. Christine and Angelberry Organics are the next big thing in the make-up industry. This girl is going places!
A few photos for you to enjoy!
Thanks for following and reading my journey.
All the best,
