~Unremarkable Bumps Along The Way ~

Got bridesmaid dress #2 today. I am happy to say it fit comfortably. (^_^)/
I need to seriously hem the bottom. My 3 1/2 inch heels were doing nothing. I shall not be the one who trips.

Dear Tumblr,

Please email acecareer@hotmail.com (as many times as you can) asking them to remove the phrase  “ethical company” from their website and job postings. Please explain to them WITHOUT NAME CALLING that you can’t be an ethical racist. I’m serious. Email them. I’m tired of Korean recruiters thinking it’s okay to market themselves this way. EMAIL THEM!!!!! It’s important that the children are taught by a diverse group of people… because their parents and Korean teachers rarely teach them anything other than stereotypes. I appreciate your help. 

Love,
Jenny

Siobhan and Anou   of Rachel May Photography
Siobhan and her husband Anou met and fell in love in Japan, more than six thousand miles away from their nuptials in Virginia. They wanted to incorporate both where their union began and their unique cultures into their wedding. The week before the wedding they had a Buddhist, Loatian ceremony and in an ode to the bride’s diverse background they opened the ceremony with an Irish blessing and had the bridal party change into traditional Ghanaian clothes. The bride worked hard with Geomyra Lewis Wedding and Events to incorporate do it yourself elements into her wedding, which was stressful but fulfilling in the end. Rachel May Photography beautifully captured this gorgeous multicultural union.
Incorporation of Culture
We combined our favorite Japanese foods for the hors d’oeuvres and also had a “Purikura” photo booth like the ones we used together in Japan.
Most Memorable Moment 
Entering the ceremony with my father by my side and seeing all my family and friends looking at me with my husband-to-be smiling at the end. I instantly started crying!
Wedding Advice
Even if things don’t go to plan, your guests won’t know! Also, DIY projects really helped us reconnect during the stressful planning process.~~~~~ munaluchibridal

What a packed long weekend!

Fourth of July
·Despite the rain my family came out in full force. J. said he couldn’t really understand anyone because of the accents. :) The patois definitely gets thicker when we’re all get together. He started to nod off during the party and my auntie asked if I “overfeed him ” lol, like he’s a goldfish. He took ribbing pretty well and said my grandmother’s accent totally disappeared when she threatened him to make sure he treats me right. :D I knew it would happen eventually. It means she likes him.

Wedding
·My curls came out bomb, My face was thoroughly beat, Cynthia’s dress was beautiful, I got misty during the vows and I decided definitely no flower girls at my own wedding after seeing Cynths lil cousin proceed back down the aisle in the middle of the ceremony to retrieve the petals she had thrown. It was a memorable day.
