Mrs. ORTEGA is back!


Soooo, I haven’t blogged for a minute. And…. this happened while I was away! I’ve been a little busy getting settled into this new life. 🙂

My late husband’s granddaughter (mine by love) was my maid of honor. And, my 4 year old grandson walked his Mammy down the aisle to the Goo Goo Dolls “Come To Me”.

This photo above is one of my favorites. As well as this photo below, with both of our sons

We had so much fun taking pics with the Harley!

Our first dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”.

We had a little rustic, a little Mexican, and a little Harley going on. Efren’s son dubbed it a Red Nexican weddin’! 😂 He and I crafted this “cake” from the Mexican treat mazipans. We were pretty proud of ourselves for this one, hehe.

We had to have some Mexican wedding cookies

My friend Tammy made the cake and it was spectacular!

The papel picado decorations I ordered from a little family business in California that I found online turned out to be  one of my favorite things!

It was such a beautiful, magical day for us.  We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding.  There were times I wondered if it was a bit silly of us to be going through the whole big wedding thing at our ages and stages in life, but in the end, we were soooo glad we did it the way we did.  Celebrating  exchanging our vows in church, in front of beloved family and friends,  truly made it feel like a brand new start for both of us. I wouldn’t trade that day for anything.

So much more has gone on since that day, including a small bit of piecing and quilting. But for now, I’ll save the rest for future posts.  I hope you enjoyed the wedding report! Thanks for stopping by!
