Who’s More Likely To? – First Anniversary Celebration

Isn’t that a fun title? It made me snort with laughter.

Anyway, it’s our anniversary today! We’ve now been married for one whole year! It’s crazy to think that. So much has happened since then.

To celebrate, I wanted to do a video. I’d seen these done with couples and friends before, but it’s the “Who’s More Likely To?” tag or challenge or whatever. I copied a bunch of questions, wrote them down, and one evening, Rory and I sat down and answered the questions.

It was a lot of fun, and I like to think we learnt a lot about each other.

Here’s the video:

Some things we learnt included the fact that Rory is clearly the more romantic one in the relationship, while I’m more likely to either fall over, cry or fall asleep in a random location. Good times!

Today is quite a laidback celebration for us, we do have gifts and a special dinner planned but that’s all. The real fun is in a few months when we go to Japan! I have a few more posts planned out in celebration of our first anniversary, so I hope you guys enjoyed this first one!

Birthday Presents

If you’ve been reading my posts recently, you’ll know it was my birthday a few days back! Yesterday, I recapped my birthday weekend, so to wrap up these birthday posts, I wanted to share what gifts my family were nice enough to get me, and also what I got myself (treat yo’ self)!

What My Family Got Me

From my parents I got this cute little breakfast set. It’s a little tray, mug, a little teapot tray and a coaster.

I also got this recipe book. We’ve had it for years, and growing up, both me and Jo would try out recipes. Since Mum doesn’t use it anymore, she’s said that I can officially have it!

Speaking of cookbooks, Rory also got me one! He got me Nerdy Nummies which he knows I’ve been deliberating buying since forever. I’m so excited looking through the book, and I hope to try out some of these incredible recipes!

The baking theme was strong in the gifts, as Rory also got me a zester. Something else I’ve been muttering about needing for a while!

I also was sent a gift from my sister which arrived yesterday. I was talking with her about my love of novelty mugs, and that’s exactly what she got me. Plus this fluffy keychain with my initial!

What I Got Myself

I bought this amazing product from Tarte during their Black Friday sale. It’s a Treasure Box Collector’s Edition, and it’s packed with so much goodies I literally gasped as I opened it. Eyeshadows, blushes, bronzers, a highlighter, lip gloss, mascara, eyeliner, a mirror, all packed into this gorgeous metal box! I’ll get more into it in another post, cause I could go on about this for a while.

I also got went to Mecca Maxima and bought travel sizes of two products I’d been really wanting to try. These are the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and Too Faced’s Better than Sex Mascara. I’m excited to try both of these!

Kikki.K sends you a $10 off coupon on your birthday, so we went by the store to pick something up. Kikki.K is a stationary store that has lots of adorable products. I saw that they have some little piece of jewellery now which is so sweet! I chose this little moon and star necklace to use my coupon on.

While at the book store, I came across a copy of The House at Pooh Corner, with the original illustrations by E.H. Shephard. I immediately got it, as I’ve lost the copies I had when I was younger.

I also treated myself to another tattoo! I now have three, and they were all this year. Haha, and I didn’t believe people when they said tattoos were addictive. This time, I got a little delicate piece along my wrist. It’s made up of small wildflowers which I’ve always loved, and baby’s breath, which were part of my wedding bouquet. It came out so cute, and I love how we arranged the placement of it! We decided to have the stems growing out of my wrist instead of the other way around!

That’s everything that I received for my birthday! I’m so happy with everything my lovely family got me, and I even got myself some (lots) of gifts too!

What’s something you’ve treated yourself to recently?

Six Years Together

Rory and I have officially been together for six years!

So much has happened since we first started dating back in December 2011. I can still remember how nervous and slightly awkward we were back on our first date. Now, we’re married and bought a house! I wouldn’t say it’s been a rocky road, with us two, it’s been pretty much smooth sailing. We’re both pretty chill people, we’ve had few arguments as we tend to talk about potential issues as they come up.

We’re not the same people we were back in 2011, we’ve both changed since then. For the better I would say. We’re not teenagers any more, but young adults. Or adults really. We have a house, we’ve gone overseas together, we’re married, we both have full-time steady jobs. I’m very happy and lucky to have found a partner I can grow and build my life with.

Here’s to many more years together!

As always, here’s bunch of photos.

Happy Birthday Rory!

It’s someone’s very special day today! Today is my husband’s birthday! Happy birthday Rory! Words can’t express how happy I am to have him in my life. I still feel so lucky that this wonderful, weird, sweet guy is my partner. We’ve been together for almost 6 years, and I don’t have a single regret.

In this time, we’ve grown and changed a lot. Rory has made me more happy, feel more confident, and more fulfilled than I would have thought possible. Together, we both finished and graduated from our respective studies, found steady full time jobs, moved in together, went on holiday together overseas, got married and bought a home. That’s a lot of milestones covered together, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I can’t imagine anyone more deserving of an amazing birthday! I love you!

Here’s a bunch of pictures!

Our Proposal Story

Well, hey! Today marks the six month anniversary for our wedding!

I haven’t stopped talking about and sharing parts of our wedding since starting this blog really. It dawned on me though, that I haven’t really talked about the proposal. I think I’ve talked about it a little, but not recently, and not to the extent I have with our wedding. I was trying to  write it down, and then I realized that it was easier for me to just say it.

So I’ve filmed a little storytime vlog where I tell you about how the proposal went down. By the way, it took me like 5 tries to get this right, cause my camera does this thing sometimes where after 2 minutes, it goes super blurry and you can’t see anything. Course I don’t notice, cause it doesn’t have one of those flippy things so you can see yourself on screen. I may look into getting a nice, decent camera. My phone is good, but for videos and things were I use my tripod, I need a camera.

Anyway, here’s the story of our proposal. Sorry about my silly camera which kept putting me out of focus.

Angela.

Our Wedding

Our Wedding

*This was originally posted on April 3. We had just returned from our honeymoon, and writing this up was so much fun! I’ve included a few more tidbits and some more photos since then*

We’ve still got a few days before returning to work which is great. We are currently making our way through wedding cards and gifts, left over decorations, dry cleaning suits and dresses…basically everything we left before heading to Fiji! For now, I wanna think back on the happiest day of my life (so far!)

Angela&RoryWedding147resize

6am. I woke up numerous times throughout the night. Why? No idea. Nerves, heat, excitement? We had just done the rehearsal the night before and had sorted out everything we needed to. Everyone knew what to do, we just had to do it later that day. I was still nervous though. Mostly about weather, it was said to rain that day. It was spitting all morning, but I talked it out with Rory and it’s okay. It’ll make the photos look cool if its raining. We have umbrellas, we’re prepared.

8.30am. We got to my parents house, so I could start getting my hair and make up done. Rory said he’ll see me later and went back home to relax until lunch. Hair and makeup take a surprising amount of time. Anyway, Dom got my hair to set, and I wandered around in curlers. My sister (and bridesmaid), Jo, got her hair done first, then Kruti (best friend and maid of honour), then Bex (Rory’s sister and groomslady). Then we started on makeup, we were all set to go by 12.30. Where Mum made us lunch. I kept looking outside and the rain had fully stopped. We could get our photo session outside!

Here’s the finished look, taken from Dom’s Instagram.

hair and makeup

12pm. On the boys side, they were all together at Rory’s dad’s place. They got their photos done and were all set by 1.

Wedding 02

1pm.  Kent came to our side, we got dressed, then took our photos. As I mentioned, it had been raining. So the grass was kinda mushy, our heels sank. But, just keep balanced on your toes and we made it through. My brother Andrew (also bridesman) joined us for the photo session. We also took many selfies that morning, because we were all dressed up and looked awesome. It helped to distract nerves. I also practiced walking around holding my train and bouquet, it takes more skill than I first thought.

2.30pm. We all separately made our way over to Percy Scenic Reserve. We were going to have a First Look shoot as we wanted to get photos done before the ceremony. So guests aren’t waiting around for us to come back before we dig into food. We didn’t really plan this well, Rory drove over as I was standing around without anyone blocking me. So he already got a quick look, woops. Also, a few of the groomsmen got lost on the way to the reserve. Double woops. We continued anyway.

2.45pm. Rory now had his eyes tightly shut as he didn’t want to see me again before the official shoot. He held onto Bex, who guided him to the first look location. I made my way through more mushy grass and got Rory to turn around by tapping his shoulder and saying something like ‘Sup’. This picture still makes me smile, even though he already kinda knew what my dress looked like, he was still emotional. After the first look, we did portraits, and lots of group photos. By the way, has anyone here done these kind of wedding portraits before. Cause they’re kinda weird. You’re moved into positions and told to act like they’re not there, or you have to suddenly smile or laugh. It feels a little awkward, I got into it more as the day went on, but there’s still that level of weird hanging around. At least in the official portrait photos.

3.15pm. When it came to the photos of just me and Rory. There was no awkwardness, he just told us where to walk and look in love. Easy.

4.15pm. Now we made our way back to the venue. This is when I  was the most nervous. Waiting sucks. We were just sitting around, and I had time to think about everything that could go wrong. I texted Rory and asked how everything looked. Everything was all good.

5pm. Dad texted me telling us to come on over. It’s showtime. We walked to the bottom of the stairs. Our procession was pretty short (as was the aisle). Rory’s side was all already up at the front. Walking up, our order was Maid of Honour (Kruti), Bridesmaid (Jo), Groomsman (Andrew), Flower Girl and Ring Bearer (Niece and Nephew of Rory), then me with my dad. I walked up the stairs fairly awkwardly, dress kept catching on my feet, but at least I didn’t fall completely over. Dad walked behind me trying not to stand on my dress. Then I gathered myself at the top of the stairs and held my  dad’s hand and went in. I waved to friends as I walked down the aisle, because why not?

5.05pm. Ceremony time. We included the filipino traditions I talked about in Mixing Traditions for a Wedding. Except for the candle, because turns out the old wooden villa we were using has very strict rules about fire. That all went well.

Angela&RoryWedding246resize

Next, the vows. By the way, during the rehearsal, Rory looked me right in the eyes, and with so much sincerity, said the vows, that I knew I wasn’t going to make it through mine without crying. I was right, and I cried and sniffled my way through the vows. So many emotions. I was determined to hold it together for the actual ceremony…I didn’t. Cried at the same spot I did the previous night. My friends were prepared for this, and a tissue was handed to me the next minute. Even Rory got a little teary. I made it through the rest of the ceremony without any more tears, then we kissed and were officially married 😀

5.45pm. Signing the license. We decided to sign right after the ceremony so it wouldn’t be forgotten. We all moved to the back, where all who needed to sign did. After that, I set off crying again. I couldn’t pinpoint why, just too much happy emotions I guess. Then Rory gave me a hug, so I cried more. Then family and friends hugged me and congratulated me, so I kept crying. Eventually, I pulled my self together for family photos.

Angela&RoryWedding298resize

6pm. The next 40 minutes was a lot of talking, catching up, eating (food kept coming my way, I suspect my husband and/or maid of honour wanted to make sure I ate). The food was delicious. It also gave people a chance to sign our guestbook. I saw ideas on pinterest of how to shake up guest books, so we made a polaroid guest book. We used an instax camera, a LOT of film, photo corner stickers, pens, guest book and a sign explaining what to do. Everyone LOVED it. Also since there was so much film, lots of people took home little polaroids as souvenirs too. Bonus! Kent also took me and Rory aside to take some photos by the stairs, so we got some alone time which was nice. It didn’t happen all that often, which surprised me. I thought I would have lots of time with my new husband, but after the ceremony, we kept getting pulled in different directions. Funny that.

Angela&RoryWedding320resize

6.45pm. Dinner time! We had a tv in the corner on a cabinet, so we tracked down photos of ourselves growing up, and my dad turned it into a cute little slideshow for people to watch while we eat. We chose the photos, so we kept out any awkward ones. More talking, eating, and having a good time.

Wedding 19

7.30pm. Toasts! We did the usual of best man and maid of honour. Both were very sweet and personal. Rory teared up when Daniel did his speech, I burst into full on tears during Kruti’s. (If you’re counting, that’s three times I’ve been crying). Then both our dad’s did their speech. Also both very sweet and personal. I will also say that our guest list was only 38. We didn’t want too many people, only close friends and family. This way, we were able to talk to everyone, and basically everybody knew each other, and we’re all nice people. So it was always going to be a hit really, I shouldn’t have worried. We opened it up to the floor then, and friends and family had their say about how lucky we are, our great characters, and the importance of family. I was on the verge of tears by this point, but I held it together.

8pm. Dessert! So before cutting the cake, it dawned on us that we hadn’t made a speech. So Rory thanked everyone for coming, thanked the wedding party, and opened up dessert. I said nothing as I was feeling teary again, and was trying to get myself under control. We cut the cake and dessert was open! Another note, we only had a one tier cake, and then we had lots of cupcakes. Three different flavours of them actually (choc peppermint, mocha and peanut butter choc), they got knocked down pretty fast. I looked over 5 minutes later and 80% was gone. Our cake was lemon & raspberry, so we cut up half into little pieces and everyone had a slice. Then it was more eating and talking.

Angela&RoryWedding375resize

8.30pm. Hanging out. So normally, at this point in a wedding there’d be dancing. That’s not really our scene. Or our families, or much of our friends…also our venue was small, perfect for not dancing. So we all brought together a variety of board games so people could play that instead. Funnily enough, we never even used them. After dessert, drinking, taking more polaroid photos, laughing…we were happy just hanging out. People came up and started saying bye from this point. Rory and I snuck off one more time to take photos on the balcony. By 9.30, most people had left beyond the core family and friends. So we just started packing up our decorations. All the decorations, except for the floral displays, were pretty much set up by us the night before. It was fun actually. The rehearsal the previous night allowed both sides to get to know each other better, talk, and laugh as we set up decorations, then practiced the ceremony. Kruti made sure that the guest book was filled up with many many polaroids. I still love going through our guest book. I personally think it’s much better than just a book where people write their well-wishes.

Wedding 24

10pm. By this point, we were all knackered. So with decorations cleared, we all headed off to our rooms. Did I mention that the venue has a motel on-site? So most of us just walked back to our rooms and crashed. Before I crashed, I did upload an update to instagram and facebook. Social media is a lot more fun when you have something big to share 🙂 Then Rory helped get all the hundreds of hair pins out my hair, and massaged my feet that had been in heels all day. What a sweet husband I have! Then we literally fell asleep cause it was a long and exciting day.

There you have it! An almost too-detailed account of Rory and mine’s wedding day! Ours went incredibly well, I can’t think of any regrets. I mean, sure, some things didn’t go according to my very detailed timeline. But you know what, I didn’t really care. Which is great, when you hear about wedding nightmares and disasters. I credit a lot of this to the fact that we kept our guest list small and limited to only people we really wanted to come.

I will write a list of all the vendors who helped out during the wedding. They all had reasonable costs, and were amazing to work with. Videographers was something we wanted, but they were all out of our price range, luckily, my almost brother-in-law was happy to film the day for us 😀

Wedding Sweets and Treats

Wedding Sweets and Treats

*This was originally posted on June 8. I’ve updated some info, and added more pictures*

Last year in May, I emailed two businesses about wedding cakes, one called Sweet Bakery and Cakery, and  the other one called Stiletto Studio Cakes. I had heard amazing things about both places. In June, we went to a tasting at each one.

First, Stiletto Studio Cakes is incredible. They do amazing and creative designs.

We went into the tasting with no idea about what we wanted. We just thought, hey…cake. The tasting was a group one with around 20 people. Everyone milled around trying cake. They had lots of little pieces of different flavoured cakes, as well fillings, icings, examples, and all sorts. The lovely people who worked there asked us what we were thinking for our wedding cake. We wanted something small ish, as we were having a small wedding, we didn’t want a huge cake, as who would eat it all? Other than that, we had no idea. We liked a few flavours (vanilla, and lemon and raspberry stuck out a lot), and said we would email through ideas or any questions we had.

Next, we went to Sweet Bakery and Cakery. They were a smaller business, but just as recommended. They did more ‘naked’ cakes, they looked less ‘spectacular’, but just as beautiful.

  

This time, the tasting was one on one. We met with the owner Grace, (who apparently is friends with our wedding florist), and she had brought lots of mini cupcakes in a range of flavours that we were interested in. In our original email, she asked what kinds of flavours we liked or were interested in, which we appreciated. I scoffed down all the mini cupcakes as we talked about details and what our thoughts were. She was the one who first suggested a cupcake tower, with a small one tier cake on top. I really liked that idea, and it stuck. I saw a few on Pinterest which I emailed through.

After talking with Grace, and seeing the designs they did, we decided to go with them. We liked their style better, and we really got along with Grace. It was just a matter of personal preference.

Now, it took us aaaages to land on the flavours for the cakes and the cupcakes. We went back a few times to try out different cupcakes, because they were all just so delicious. Also, a week after our tasting, they opened up a branch of their bakery literally minutes from Rory’s work. I found out when he came home with cupcakes. I think it was fate to choose them.

20161207_173644

After literally weeks of discussion, we landed on Lemon and Raspberry for the cake. Grace talked about buttercream roses for the icing (we aren’t fans of ganache or fondant), and we decided we’d sort out the cake topper. For the cupcakes, we landed on Mocha, Choc Peppermint and Peanut Butter Choc. We rented a cupcake stand from them, signed the contract, paid and that was that! This was all sorted during June of last year. It was one of the earliest parts we landed on, along with the venue and photographer. It was also one of the most fun parts of planning our wedding!

So, to wrap up this post, here comes some photos of our wedding cake and cupcakes on the big day.

My best friend and M.O.H. Kruti took this lovely photo of her cupcake choice (Peanut Butter)

Now, I will end this on a serious, sad (at least for me) note. I did not eat any of the cake, and barely any of the cupcakes on my wedding. I KNOW! How could I?? Look, I really wanted to try them leading up to it, but on the day (and the rehearsal the night before), I didn’t feel hungry. It was really weird, I had scoffed all the previous cupcakes I tried, but the whole day, I  just didn’t feel hungry. I did eat between the ceremony and reception though, as food kept being thrown in my direction (Rory and Kruti’s doing). But I barely tried our amazing desserts. Our guests loved them though. We got more cupcakes than guests, so we encouraged people to take them home, which many did! Also, we split the remaining cake between our families, as we were off to Fiji and didn’t want it to spoil. Long story short, all those jokes about people saying that you wouldn’t eat much on your wedding day turned out to be true for me. That is probably my only regret on the day. If/When you guys do/did get married, remember to eat cake.

Angela.
