December 18, 2017 — Mark Torrelino, my husband, and I got married on a Monday, at Downtown Disney (Anaheim, California), on the same day he asked me to be his girlfriend 8 years prior. I had less than one month to plan the wedding. It wouldn’t have been possible without the help of my family and friends. There were so many meaningful details in the wedding, I’ll have to tell each story and each piece with time.

Mark and I have been practicing for our wedding day since 2011 — and I am so ready to be married to my best friend. All the wedding photography and photobooths we did together leads us up to the very moment when we’ll be able to celebrate our love with our closest family and friends. As of right this very second, we have FOUR (and a half) FULL DAYS LEFT.
If you’ve followed my blog or YouTube for the last ten or more years, I’m sure you know Jesse! If you don’t know who this guy is (in the photo above), meet him now… this is Jesse Truong! My “BGF” (aka “best guy friend”), the Stitch to my Lilo-self, and the nerd who made being a “nerd” cool. This guy right here is going to marry me and Mark, and I am so excited! wooot~ 🙌🏾
In the midst of all the wedding planning and happy moments, a very sad thing happened last week. Mark’s grandmother — also known as nanay — passed away. It’s been hard, especially since our upcoming wedding day is on Nanay’s 93rd birthday.
Mark and I are Disney fanatics. It’s only right to celebrate our important day with a theme we absolutely love: a Disney theme!
My boyfriend of seven years asked me to marry him, and I said YES!
