Video Love and a Marathon for Charity

While my video isn't done and ready for viewing our AMAZING videographer, Mike Howard (with the help of his wife Amanda) from Memories Through Time posted a Spring 2010 Video Promo blog post and some shots from our wedding are included! The shots he has in there are so fun and I can't wait to see our video once he is done.

Along with this good news, I am so excited for this day to finish because tomorrow we leave for Seattle. After TONS of hard work, both training to run and raising money for The Leukemia Lymphoma Society through Team in Training, we are headed out to Seattle so Mac can run in the Seattle Rock-n-Roll marathon.


He is so excited to be going and is determined to make me fall in love with Seattle so we can move there some day. I am sticking to the fact that I love my sun and heat too much to ever leave, especially for somewhere that rains all the time, and not the good, warm monsoon rain that we have here. But, when trying to find pictures of the race stuff I saw that the Facebook fan page for the race has this amazing image of Lake Washington up. Now I know better than to go off one picture, but isn't it gorgeous? I may need a reality check when I get back so he doesn't drag me off to another state with hopes of pretty views like this (which I am sure only appear every so often).

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed for a dinner on the top of the Seattle Space Needle.

Well thanks for checking in! Hope everyone has a great weekend. I should have some fun pictures to share from the weekend when I get back.

A Little Taste of What's to Come

Last night, to my surprise, I got an email from our fabulous photographers telling us they had posted a blog with some of our photos from the wedding! I was beyond excited, obviously, so I dropped everything I was doing, which honestly wasn't much, and headed to the computer to check them out. Can I just say, I am IN LOVE with them. They are so amazing! I can't thank our photographers enough for doing such a great job and, really, they made it all so much fun. It was truly a great day, the BEST even, and we had so many great vendors that I can't thank enough. I am so happy that A&B Photos was there to capture the day (thanks Twitter) and Memories Through Time (our videographer) too - I just don't have stuff from him yet to show you and brag about, but I am told it will be soon too :) so excited!!! Anyway, check out the blog post HERE.

This is the first preview photos that they posted on Facebook almost immediately after the wedding. LOVE IT!

Being married feels good!

We did it!! On May 22, 2010 Mac and I officially became Mr. and Mrs. It was absolutely perfect day, better than I could have ever hoped. Aside from a bit of family drama in the morning which caused a HUGE delay in me getting ready and ultimately making me a bit late getting out of the hotel and to the church there were no huge issues. The morning started out pretty groggy for me because I decided to go out with Nicole and Elena after the rehearsal dinner. But one I woke up and the girls started getting ready I was good. I spent the majority of the morning getting my pamper on with Kim and Colbi doing my hair and makeup then getting into the dress. Our photographer and videographers arrived during our getting ready time and once I was finally situated in the dress and read y to go we headed for the church.

Before the ceremony we just had a bunch of waiting around to do in the church classroom we were in, then just before I was supposed to give it to him, I realize I left Mac's wedding gift in my room. Our coordinator ran back to get it but unfortunately she didn't make it back in time to have us trade before the ceremony. So we just did it after. Of course it was SUPER hot that day and almost unbearable to be outside – especially in my amazing, but massive dress. So we took as many pictures as we could inside and did a few around the golf course right and resort right after. 

Once we got to cocktail we were taken upstairs to get a peek at the ballroom and it was absolutely breath-taking. Everything was exactly how I wanted it and the resort gave us the ENTIRE ballroom so it was really quite a sight walking in. From there the night just flew by. The toast we both funny and touching, we really couldn't ask for better friends and family. The combination of heat and the dress made me not feel well enough to eat or drink anything but water but once I got composure we made the rounds to the tables. It's weird I feel like I talked to everyone at least for a minute but didn't really see or hang out with anyone at the same time. 

Our choreographed first dance, which I thought I had completely forgotten just before we walked in the ballroom for the reception, was perfect we did the entire thing as we had rehearsed it and everyone, from what I could tell enjoyed it. 

The rest of the night was just really a blur of events that had me, at some point, taking off the slip under my dress and dancing barefoot on the dance floor all night with our friends. We haven't gotten the professional photos back yet but here are a few to give you a taste of the day/night. 

All-in-all I'd say we accomplished what we set out to do: Our friends and family had a great time. Between the cigar roller, candy table, photo/video booth, amazing food and incredible entertainment, I don't see the night going any better than it did and even the resort staff was complimenting us on how great the event was, one of the best they had seen. What more could a bride want for her big day?

Enjoy the pictures; I hope to be able to post the pro pics and video soon!!!
