This was a really special event for me. I had the honor and privilege to do hair and makeup for my Aunt's "wedding" in New Mexico. My aunt and uncle where married when they were 16 years old and never had a wedding. So for their 40th anniversary, their kids (my cousins) planned a full on, gorgeous ceremony & reception. It was so fun and so incredibly memorable. I think we should have a big anniversary party at least every 10 years, right?! I mean, as a female, you always say, "Well, if I were to do it again, I'd do it like this...." And now that we have pinterest, oh boy! Party every year!
VENUE: First Assembly Of God (Ceremony) and Best Western (Reception), Carlsbad, New Mexico.
