The new Mrs. Silva

Hi everyone and happy friday!!!

I been taking it easy from all around here.  I been enjoying my days has a new Mrs. Silva, its amazing how when you are in love everything else seems perfect.  Our wedding was so amazing and emotional.  I think I cried all my tears through the wedding but specially during the ceremony when my husband shared his vows. He did not write or practice them but he outdid mine, he made everyone cry has he shared his love.  I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life and I thank GOD everyday for our love.

Here are a few picture from the wedding as promised. The first ones are from the ceremony.  Hubby really wanted a very classic and romantic ceremony and this group did just that.   Their music was wonderful and I couldn't ask for nothing more then to walk down the aisle to their sound.  

I hope you enjoyed the pics. I will be back with more soon. 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!
