That’s the question that everyone keeps asking. I actually love that question because I love answering it! I married an amazing, intelligent and attractive man! So, my answer in a nutshell is: It’s great, it’s comforting, its stable and its relaxing. To be honest, that’s how it felt before we got married. It’s just awesome to know, this is my life. Mike and I get along so well and if ever there is an issue we make sure to discuss it.
So yeah, that’s how married life is so far 🙂
First off, we would like to thank everyone that came to the wedding and took photos. But just as a reminder, if you wouldnt mind sending us the photos and/or video you took on the cds provided. We would like to go through them soon so we can post them for everyone to see.
If you have posted any anywhere if you wouldnt mind taking them down until we get to review them all.
Once again thanks to all who did take photos and we cant wait to see them. If you need another cd just let us know and we will send you another cd for photos.
Thanks Mike and Janine
We have now posted the Maid of Honor and Best Man speeches. They were so great, we had to share them with everyone as well. We couldn’t have asked for better persons to stand by our sides. They were there for us the entire way and helped with keeping us calm and collective the day of. We give both Raekel and Alfred our respect and love. They are not only our friends but they are considered our family as well.
We have posted our wedding vows for everyone to view. If you wish to read the vows that we wrote for each other please do. Read Our Vows. We are still planning on renewing our vows for next year for our 1st year anniversary. So hoping everything goes to plan so those who were unable to join us for the wedding can hear us renew these same vows next year.
It was a beautiful and magical day. We would like to thank everyone that attended and sent their love. We are on our honeymoon now and when we get back we have tons of pictures and some video to go through. We will post these along with our vows and the best man and maid of honor speeches on the website. We will also be giving details of the days events so those who couldn’t join us can follow through our special day. We are going back to the beach. Talk to everyone soon.
The countdown is NOW officially on!!! Everything is set and ready to go. My sweets had his bachelor party today. Thanks to Alfred (best best man), Marcus (my brother) and Josh (friend) for showing Mike a great time! My best friend Raekel is flying in from NYC on Wednesday. We’re going to have cupcakes, great food, a few drinks and dancing! I’m super excited! The fun has just begun!!! Hugs to all!!!!
All locations are set. We have the location for the ceremony and the reception set.
Just to recap, we are having our ceremony right on the sandy shores of Atlantic Beach at Visions Events and Beyond.
Now we have found the restaurant for where we are having the ceremony. Its Floyd’s 1921 just across the bridge in Morehead City.

We are heading back to the beach to try to figure out restaurants. We had a couple of places in mind but one place is out because of where the private room is. It’s up two flights of stairs…so onto the other place. It also had a private room with a separate entrance, and it seemed like it was going to be just right. At the time we looked at the restaurant, we were unable to talk to the owner or a manger that could of assisted us with setting up the event. So we grabbed the event packet and left our information for an owner or manager to contact us to get more information. After a few days, nothing, nada, zip. So after trying to contact them with no luck either. I had my best man try to get in touch with them.
Luckily he was able to and got some more info. After transferring that info to my parents they were gonna set it up. Well it just so happens, they don’t book events on Friday or Saturday, and that they say they do 5,000 a night on those nights. These supposed facts are very odd considering two things. One – in their event packet we were given it said they host events any day of the week…Two – when we went in to their establishment on a Friday during dinner hours there wasn’t a soul in the place other than the hostess and some cooks. My parents were also told that the packet we were given was put together before they had the private room…OK STOP WAIT….I looked through that packet and there were pictures of the private room in there…so that was a flat out lie. Then the suggestions that were given were just bad…one of the suggestions was that we could reserve the outside upstairs deck…yeah that wont happen. The next suggestion which was the one that just makes me scratch my head and ask what the hell was he thinking….he said that we could have our dinner BEFORE the wedding…just what in anyone’s smart head would think that would be a good idea for a wedding? So that suggestion was out.
The only other idea that was given is that we could pay the $5,000 to book that private room AND pay for the food. That is insane and out of the question.
So now we have a couple more restaurants in line that we are going to check out and try their food. We know which place we like and they were very nice and professional. Wish us luck.
