We Do!

We did it!

All of me loves all of you

Yep, it’s true! Today I became Alicia Noelle Leitner.

We had a small private ceremony with just us, Birdy, and a few close friends. It was so lovely. I know some people probably will feel slighted that they were not invited to the ceremony, but honestly, we wanted to keep it very small and intimate, so I hope people respect that.

We said our vows to each other, and I cried, of course. *laughs* I just couldn’t help myself!

Our reception was also really fun. We had music by our favorite live singer, Wolfie Starfire! Oh, she put on a great show for us! Lots of Disney song requests from us and our guests, so I think she really had a fun time, too!

Right now we’re resting a bit and having some food. Later tonight, Jeremiah and I will be jetting off to our honeymoon! He has not told me exactly where we are going yet, so I’m very very excited to get to see it!

Next blog post will be from our honeymoon!

It’ll Happen One Day

So I haven’t had a chance to update lately because we’ve been so so busy! But I thought I’d answer the biggest question I got after the last blog post.

When is the wedding?!

Well…here’s the thing. I don’t know if we’ll do the big wedding extravaganza. I’ve done that before and while it was lovely, I’m a much different person than I was in 2011. Neither of us feel the need to have this big massive thing. In my head, it’s just the 3 of us (Birdy is included, of course!) doing a private little ceremony, maybe with just family in attendance. I do want a wedding dress, but I picture myself in something boho and/or vintage styled. Maybe one of these days, I’ll do a live stream and go dress shopping! But I couldn’t buy anything because Michael does watch my streams, and I’d hate to ruin the surprise. Some traditions MUST be upheld, of course!

I do think that I want a party to celebrate later, though. Nothing massive, just friends and family and music and dancing. Lots of fun!

But other than there being no real news on the wedding front… That’s about all I’ve got. We are all happy when we can spend time together. Trying to balance our time has been a bit of an issue, but we’re definitely working on it.

I hope everyone has had a great February! I really am going to try to update this blog more with our adventures, but that whole balance thing I was talking about kinda makes me push some things to the side. If only there were an extra couple of hours in the day! Someone get to work on that, okay??

Day 46 – The Denimore-Otoro Wedding!

My friends Lourdes and Salvatore got married today!! I was their DJ, so I took extra special care to dress nicely.

Day 46 - Before The I Do

It was a great place and it was really nice to see some of my plurk buddies in world! We so rarely get together. Well, okay, I so rarely get together with them. I’m sure a lot of them see each other all the time. But of course, nothing was better than seeing the bride walk down the aisle. LOOK AT THAT DRESS!!

Lourdes Walking Down The Aisle

They had Pamala, Aldwyn’s friend who officiated at our wedding, also do theirs! I thought that was nice, because Pamala really seems to get into it! 🙂

At the altar

Awww, the bride and groom!!

Mr and Mrs Otoro

We had a really great time at the reception. They requested a pretty much all 90s playlist, which of course you know I was totally into. I love 90s music!! And yes, we did take our shoes off!

Party time

Kesseret really enjoyed the reception! She did share, though, so that was a plus!

Kess enjoying the wedding

It was really an awesome wedding and I’m overjoyed that I got to be part of their day. 🙂 Now who is NEXT???

Wedding Pics!

I almost expected to have that “day after Christmas” feeling today. You know, when you feel kind of down because all the big festivities are over? But I totally don’t! In fact, I think I may be just as happy as I was yesterday, if not even a little more so. I just feel good. 🙂

I have a few pictures to share! If you want to see more, we have a Flickr Group here.

Me right after putting my dress on. Hey, you try getting that huge skirt on by yourself and see how tired you feel!

Wedding Day - Putting on this dress made me tired

Our beautiful reception gazebo that Ulaa made for us. It’s so seriously amazing!! I think she’s going to sell it later but for now, it’s still just mine. 😀

Wedding Day - Reception Gazebo

Our first official dance as husband and wife. 🙂 We danced to “Dance With Me” by Orleans. Yep, Aldwyn picked it. He’s old school. 🙂

Wedding Day - First Dance

My maid of honor eating some of our delicious cake. And our DJ, getting ready to play cake plate frisbee. LOL!

Wedding Day - Ulaa eats and Elle throws

In the middle of the reception, Ulaa’s little one decided he’d had quite enough of the gazebo. I laughed so hard!!! I swear, I’m going to send him a present for making me laugh until I had tears in my eyes.

Wedding Day - The mysterious disappearing gazebo

LUCKILY, Ulaa had told me to leave the rez box out when we had first put the gazebo down, so it was easy enough [once we plowed through the grass] and the gazebo popped back up. But when we did that, we caught some of the guests! MINE NOW!

Wedding Day - Caught you

Just kidding, I gave them back.

And one more of us dancing. 🙂

Wedding Day - More dancing

Best day everrrr!!!

But I can’t WAIT for us to start tearing down things and moving into our new house!!! That will come in time. Technically, we’re still on the honeymoon! 🙂

Thinking before bed

Hi there! Aldwyn is getting ready for bed, but I got a second wind. You know how it is. If you don’t go to bed RIGHT when you’re tired, you end up staying up later!

Getting ready for bed

It’s almost midnight, so my wedding day is just about over. I cannot remember having a happier day in SL EVER. EVER EVER. I don’t have pics up yet, but I will get that done tomorrow probably. There are so many good memories, I’m just still flipping through them in my head, like the way you look through a well loved book.

You know, one thing that this wedding has made me remember is how much I enjoy non-fashion blogging. A lot of the time when I’m quiet in here, it’s because I’m trying hard to keep up with my style blog. That’s not always easy because I second guess myself a lot as far as my outfits and my photos go. I mean, really. Look at the feeds sometimes. Some people are AMAZING. It makes me doubt myself sometimes! But I started as a blogger who just talked about her SLife, and you know? I really enjoy it. So I think I’ll do that more often. I’ll still fashion blog, of course, because I do enjoy it, but I think I should spend more time on this blog and having fun in SL when it’s not fashion related. 🙂

I’m yawning again, so I think it’s time to snuggle into bed. Big thank you to everyone who truly made this the best day ever. Love you!!

We did it!

We did it!!!

Wedding Day - Kiss

The wedding was all I could have hoped for – and more!! I will have more pictures later, and a lot more to say, but we’re about to start a new adventure together, and so I’ve got to go! Thank you to those who shared in our day, whether you were there with us physically, or sending good thoughts our way. We love you all and this day was made more beautiful by having you in it!

Wedding Day - Starting a new life

Posted in Aldwyn, countdown, friends, gifts, love, wedding

Day 1 – The final night

It’s… it’s…. IT’S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN! DAH DAH DAHHH DAH! DAH DAH DAHDAHDAAAAAHHHH! :-p

I’m quietly excited. Like, so excited that I can’t even actually be that loud about it. Have you ever been like that?

Day 1 - The final night

I seriously have amazing friends. They’ve been sending Aldwyn & me gifts all night, even though we did not expect it at all! We’ve gotten kitchen appliances and things for the house and fun gifts to play with. I’ve been writing the names of people next to the gift so that I remember who sent what and I can send thank you notes later.

We spent a few hours tonight just making sure that everything was right where it needed to be. As long as everyone who needs to be there shows up, we should be golden.

My main worry at this point is that I might be feeling sick tomorrow. I got a flu shot today, and unfortunately that usually makes me feel sick for a couple of days afterwards. I will DRAG myself to the wedding if necessary, but I’m hoping I don’t feel too awful so that I can enjoy it, you know? Of course, I don’t think it’s a huge concern because I’m going to be so happy, that will absolutely override any flu.

I can’t believe tomorrow at this time, I’ll be married. 🙂 I really cannot believe it.

Aldwyn: I’ll see you tomorrow.

Me: I’ll be the one in white.

Aldwyn: And I’ll be the one standing there waiting for you.

Day 2 – Starting to feel it!!

Okay. Honestly? I’m really starting to feel it now.

Day 2 - Starting to feel it

The excitement is building up inside of me, like ..

Oh for pete’s sake. LMAO


[19:18] Alicia Chenaux: It’s an afternoon garden wedding, so I wouldn’t go all out formal, but anything pretty that you like should work. Please keep your boobs covered until the reception though.

[19:18] Heidi Halberstadt: FUCK

[19:19] Tymmerie Thorne: *changes her outfit*

[19:19] Alicia Chenaux: LOL!!!

[19:19] Elle Kirshner: even the DJ? or is there a DJ boobie exception?

[19:19] Alicia Chenaux: Oh, you can show your boobs anytime!

[19:19] Heidi Halberstadt: I vote for DJ being the exception.

[19:19] Ulaa Coronet: i love DJ tits

[19:19] Ulaa Coronet: more tips

[19:19] Heidi Halberstadt: There’s always time for THE RACK

[19:20] Alicia Chenaux: Oh god. Someone’s going to pull a strip pole out at the reception, aren’t they?

[19:20] Sehra Kauffman: like… short dress or longer?

[19:20] Blackhawk60 Sikorsky: is it not good if i wear my freenis, i can hide it as long as people promise not to see hidden prims

[19:20] Ulaa Coronet: im gonna drop a tip jar i dunno about anyone else

[19:20] Heidi Halberstadt: Imma gonna wear mah silks

And that’s what I have to put up with!!!

Anyway… LOL

I’m getting very excited. Every time I look at the benches, the altar, the gazebo, my heart just swells and flutters with happiness. I have re-read the words I’ve written to say to Aldwyn at the ceremony probably 20 times tonight, and each time I tear up a little.

I’ve had good and bad times in my SLife, as we all have, but never did I think I’d ever be this happy! It just feels RIGHT, you know? Just so so so right.

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I’d like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You’ve been there you understand
It’s all part of a grander plan that is coming true.

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true…
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

Day 3 – Finishing the vows

Ooh damn y’all. We are coming down TO it.

This evening I spent a couple of hours finishing my vows. I totally teared up while finishing them up, I’ll admit it. Who wouldn’t cry while writing nice stuff about their future husband?? :-p

Day 3 - Finishing The Vows

There’s not really all that much to report today. We really finished up the main bulk of the shopping and stuff last night so today has been quiet. But we’re heading into the weekend and I just know I’m going to start getting more and more crazy.

Actually, I was getting kind of nuts about the “Something old, something new” bit. My dress, shoes, and hair are new. I’ll be wearing a very old pair of earrings from Flirt. My shoes are blue. But the something borrowed bit was troubling me. Luckily, Ulaa reminded me that Sixx loaned us the reception tables, so that totally counts as my something borrowed. Woot!

I keep having crazy dreams about the wedding. Night before last, I dreamed that we were at the church and Ulaa wasn’t there. I kept running to the window to see if she was there yet and she wasn’t. Then people I hadn’t invited, like an old sorority sister and my RL Bestie and her hubby, showed up and I was struggling to add them to the access list really fast. Then when it was time to get to the altar, I took the wrong turn and got lost and ended up running all over trying to get up to where Aldwyn was. The minister was drunk and kept baptizing him at the altar. I don’t know what any of that meant!! Then LAST night, I had another dream that I couldn’t quite get to the altar and I kept trying to call, despite the fact that I was pretty close by. And then only 2-3 people showed up for the reception and I was so upset!

I really hope that these dreams are my way of working out any worries and that nothing like that actually happens on Sunday. Of course, when I told Al that I was worried about the whole getting lost to the altar part, he told me that if I got lost, he’d come and find me. Awww. That’s my man!
