Handmade Amor: Not your typical get away

When we started planing our ceremony both of us thought about using a cool vintage car for our get away, but as the planning continue we realized that  we just had to stay true to The Ranch. Therefor we went with the typical Ranch ride, Quads!


I enjoy riding quads so much! and they were actually a huge part of the whole planning, I use them to collect all the branches for our center pieces, to carry stuff out to the ceremonie site, etc. So of course they HAD to be in our wedding day =]


We drove around for some pictures while our guest were transported to the barn and even tho there was mud, I was really careful not to rush trough it, so my dress was save. But Mr. Poodle just wanted speed hehe.



Mr Poodle's cousing made super cute signs to hang at the back of the quads.




But the wind was so strong that, Mr. Poodle's didn't last long =]


At the end we gave one of the quads to Adi, our photographer so he carried all the gear and we jumped on one to head over to our reception =]





kind of red-neck according to some, but we just loved it!

Handmade Amor: We are Husband and Wife!

In my last post I shared our vows and how much fun that part of our ceremony was! Well after that our friend Paul did one on the more touching prayers I've heard from him.

The air around us felt warm for a moment while we had our eyes closed and carefully listen to Paul's sweet prayer. I don't think i can describe how happy I felt while holding his hands =]  (I did felt my dress hitting me in the face a few times tho hehe)

Our long distance relationship was finally facing an end and we were about to begin a full new life together, closer than ever before.




Mr. Poodle and I were so touch, happy and excited to finally be presented as Husband and Wife! and well, the kiss speaks from itself =]


After that we started walking as our guest got a hold of the birdseed =]





I end up with seeds EVERYWHERE! it was funny and I guess some of them didnt even bother to untie the little bags and hit Mr. Poodle with the several times.you can see one coming the the photo below, but it was awesome!






And I can't finish with our ceremonie recaps without specially thanking the people that made it possible for my family back in Chile to witness everything from their computers. Carl and Jimmy (right and center) The worked so hard trying to get internet access in the remote area we chose for our ceremonie and when everything seemed like it was just not going to happen, they called me on Skype while I was sewing pillowcases at home with Momma Poodle and showed me the finish fireplace/altar in our chapel. I could not help but cry because it just meant the world to me. They did the impossible and helped with tons of cables and several routers brought our wedding to the ones that could not come. They just ROCK! And of course on the left our Dj Ricky, the coolest DJ EVER just wait and see!



Next up... you really want to see our rides :P so stay tuned!

Handmade Amor: The Vows

One of my favorite parts of our ceremony was the vows exchange, it was so personal and also funny =] Mr. Poodle made me cry a little as he quoted one of our favorite songs from Dave's Mathews band in his vows and made me laugh when he mention the fact that he picked me up on the side of the road when I was hitchhiking to work - That is how we met =]







"Joy ... Today is the first day we challenge the world side by side. I promise to love you and encourage you in any late night or origami adventure or long blogging jobs. I will especially love you and respect you thought the best times and when the road gets rocky girl... steady as we go! ...






... Our relationship has always been controlled by long distances and I cant wait to have you to me for more than a couple of months. Just imagine, people live their lives and some never found what I found on the side of the road. As we grow together I want you to know that I love you. Te amo mucho and Io sono il fortunato."




After that Mr. Poodle and his groomsman played a little game trying to find the ring and started to ask each other and search in all pockets, it was very well coordinated and super funny to watch, good thing they only pretended to lose it, whew!




And this one below has to be one of my favorite pictures, with the little Poodle charm I wore as my bracelet =]





Finally it was my turn =] I have to admit I am horrible at public speaking so before that I was super nervous, but when the time came I was so into the ceremony that I didn't really notice I was speaking in front of all of our guest until I finish, for a few minutes it totally felt like it was just the tow of us there =]





"After the first time I saw you, I could not take you out of my mind. After a few months I could not take you out of my heart, and now years have pass and I know I dont ever want you out of my life, I want you with me forever...





... I can't believe this relationship started only 3 years a go, because I feel like we've always been by each others side. I feel so blessed to have found you as my partner because when I look at you I see everything that I have ever wanted and needed....




 ...When you hold me, I feel like everything is possible and that no matter what happens we can make it through anything together. Now that our love has passed the test of time and distance I know that I am ready to spend the rest of my life with you...





... I promise I will laugh with you (not just at you), I will cry with you (even tho we both know I am the one that cries all the time). I will comfort you and encourage you. I promise  to make your plans and dreams as important to me as my own. I promise not to take you, your love and our relationship for granted. I promise to give you my best and to the family we will create together because I don't just like you, I love you! "


And since the boys had a little game with the ring we had to do something, so we decided to pretend Mr. Poodle's ring was stock in her sister's finger, so we all pulled together to try to recoverer it.






Since none of us saw each other's ring i was very nervous his was not going to fit him, so I guess I overreacted when it fit so well =]




Next up, we are husband and wife! YAY!
