Though they had already known of each other for some years, Cressana and Edward first officially met at a graduation dinner. After Cressana's aunt told her that Edward was interested in getting to know her, the two hit it off and have been together for over four years now. The lovely couple walked down the aisle in a romantic red and white ceremony at the Bougainvilleas in Houston, Texas.

Edward and my bonus son basically gave it away that he was proposing. The day before, he asked me if I heard from his parents, which was random. He stated that he had a feeling they were coming to "surprise" him in Dallas. Then later that night my bonus son asked me if I saw myself being with his dad forever. That's when my mind started racing! Fast forward to the next day at my nephew's birthday party. I am cutting my nephew's cake and turn around to start serving the cake to the children and there Edward was standing and everyone was quiet. He asked me to marry him in front of our families and friends.

I was so calm and ready to marry my best friend. I did not have one nervous bone in my body about marrying him. I felt like I was dreaming and floating the whole day.

My wedding experience was exactly what I was expecting. It was the best day of my life, joining my love with my best friend was nothing less than PERFECT! From the décor, venue, and the assistance from our wedding planner everything was wonderful. Our DJ kept the dance floor live with back to back hits. I loved every minute of it!
Your best/most memorable moment:
Our most memorable moment was when we said our vows while looking into each others eye.
