Looking Forward to the Honeymoon!





To kickoff the Honeymoon Vacation we will spend our Honeymoon 1st night at The Salish Lodge in Snoqualmie. The Lodge overlooks the Snoqualmie Falls and is one of the best local scenic vistas. I am excited since after we will take down and breakdown all of the wedding decor, to then go to the room and climb into the jetspa tub for two and just relax until I look like a pickle!

Wedding: The Countdown! 5 Weeks





Mom and I took some photos of me in my dress.
I hope that people in Missouri can get a feel for what is coming along.

The dress is super white and so is the veil. Once the veil and the dress were on together, I turned to my mom and said,

"Wow, I am going to look super nice."

Of course, being my mom, she said,

"You will always be my beautiful little girl."

The Evergrowing Ribbon Collection


Now that I am preparing for my wedding my ribbon collection is growing.
I love ribbons and embellishments and buttons and so many things I collect.
I am one of those "collectors." I like how my dad puts it,
"We are Packrats", he says.
Scott says his mom also calls it that.

inFAMOUS : Scott's Video Game out in 2009

















Wishes: Dream Big!



If you are going to wish, dream BIG they say!
Just to show my taste really.
Vera Wang designs a very feminine and also masculine setting called "lace." This setting pulls it together with a thick band in a very stong elegant yet intricate design that is pleasing yet not too busy. The salad plates have a very detailed lace and leaflike design that is reminiscent of chantilly lace and antique china passed down generation to generation. The cups are short and sturdy, the dinner plateand overall design timeless.
Even Scott thinks it is nice!

Beaver Lake Park, Sammamish - WA


Liz and James McDaniel followed us to the wedding site Saturday to select the spot for the music setup area in the Pavillion. There were pink and white water lillies covering vast parts of the lake. James said it looked like they were made to order for the wedding. We were surprised, when we were there in the past there were just small areas of lily pads dotted here and there.
We had not seen them in bloom before then and it was breathtaking for sure. We hope we are locky enough and they are as lovely in the weeks ahead for the ceremony.

More Decorations for the Wedding Site...



Scott thinks these are too Christmas-y with the lights.. The Pavillion, even on a summer day is a little darker, so topiary with white lights would brighten up a corner area.... Hummn maybe the lights wil be nixxed.
