Mr. & Mrs.

We're married, we're married!!

If you were wondering why I was MIA, this is the reason!

As all brides, bridesmaids, maid of honors, parents of the bride, and close-related friends know, weddings are chaotic! But now that the craziness is over, I have time to reflect and share the experiences with you guys. :)

I will start with just a short summary:

We had a destination wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic with just our immediate families and it was PERFECT!  It was the most beautiful, and most intimate wedding, and I don't think it could've gone better. How special it was to have the love of our parents and siblings surrounding us, not worrying about the details or pleasing guests... or all that stuff. How beautiful to be in God's presence and sense His spirit throughout our commitment.

We also got a chance to visit Frank's hometown, Baitoa, and met family... drove around on the bike...

And then just this past weekend we had a reception here in Springfield, to celebrate with our friends and family who live life with us. It was also so beautiful and fun- God blessed us with a gorgeous day (it was supposed to storm all day.)

We showed this video at our reception. It's the story of how we met, and how God worked in our lives and our relationship from the very start, to this new beginning as man & wife:

From the very beginning there were butterflies, followed by a number of ups and downs. It was only by God's goodness and grace, that Franquelis and Lisa got to share their love for each other.
