More Bridal Shower Pics

It's about that time....again

So last weekend Andrew and I decided to go look at apartments. Our lease is up May 26th, so we originally planned on extending our lease for one month and moving after the wedding. But when we went looking on Sunday, we ended up finding exactly what we wanted. The only catch was, we have to move by May in two weeks from now! So we decided to go for it and now we are moving May 9th & 10th. We found an awesome aparment in Irvine (about 5 minutes from our apartment now). It's 2 bedroom, 2 bath, an upstairs corner unit with no one above us. There is a fireplace, vaulted cielings, and granite countertops in the kitchen...and best of all, it's PET FRIENDLY! Woo hoo! We even have a little yard area right behind us for the future puppy to run around. We are super excited about moving, but we know its also going to be super stressful. I am going to be in Vegas for my bachelorette party the week before the move and Andrew is going to be in Havasu the week after the move. So needless to say, we are going to be living out of boxes for the next month until we get back from our honeymoon and have time to decorate and unpack! I can't wait to open all our cool gifts and get settled into our first home as a married couple! If anyone feels like moving some boxes or helping me organize, give me a call! I could use the company.

My Bridal Shower

This past Saturday I had my bridal shower at my parent's house. The weather couldn't have been more perfect! I had been looking forward to my shower for quite some time...I couldn't wait to see what my mom and Erin had come up with. When I got there, I was more than impressed...everything was black and pink! Some of the little details included: pink and black balloons, pink and black M&M favors, damask plates & napkins, little "k&a" square cut outs all over the tables, and hot pink votives! The food was also amazing! My mom even made my favorite...chocolate covered strawberries! It was so fun to see all my friends and family together in one place. They did a great job making me feel so special and showering me with love and tons of great gifts! I'm sad its over already, but excited because it means I'm that much closer to the big day! Thanks again to everyone who was able to make it. A special thanks to Jana for making the awesome invitations, my mom for opening up her house to everyone and decorating/preparing all the food, and of course to my maid of honor Erin, for organizing the whole thing and making it all come together! It was perfect! I love you girls. Now time for some pictures...

October 3, 2009

I got an email last week from my awesome florist, Aly Loge - The Vines Leaf, about a bride who was looking for a wedding coordinator. Aly was gracious enough to think of me and referred the bride to me. I got to meet Jen and her future mother-in-law, Mardel, at Mardel's house in San Juan Capistrano - which is the future site of Jen and RJ's backyard wedding. The house is absolutely stunning! The second I walked in, I could see an amazing pool in the backyard surrounded by beautiful landscape. I could just picture the wedding taking place...floating candles in the pool, strung white lights, and a poolside dance floor. I got to talk with Jen about her ideas for her wedding. She is so laid back and easygoing and I can tell she is going to be a wonderful bride. I am looking forward to coordinating their October 3rd wedding...Thanks for trusting my with your big day. I can't wait! Thanks again Aly for the referral.

Yikes! 2 months and 28 days left til the big day! Why does it suddenly sound so much closer? Not that I'm freaking out or anything... I must say that I am pretty "on top of it" as far as wedding to-do's. I find myself constantly flipping through my wedding binder, looking at my to-do lists (yes there is more than one) and wondering what else I can check off. However, some things just can't be done early no matter how much I want to get them done.

Until then, I am sooo excited about the upcoming festivities. My bridal shower is going to be awesome and more bachelorette party will be amazing! I can't wait to spend a weekend in Vegas with my favorite girls (minus a few who can't make it - you know who you are). We are going to have a blast! I know these next few months will fly by. Hopefully I will be able to soak it in as much as possible! One of these days, I am going to wake up and say "Holy crap! I'm a wife!" Hopefully, Andrew will have already left for work by then. :)

Mr. and Mrs. Johnson

This weekend, one of my best friends, Gigi, got married to the man of her dreams, Josh Johnson. I was lucky enough to be one of the bridesmaids in their wedding and stand next to Gigi as she said her "I Do's". We had a blast getting ready that morning at Gigi's parents house. Then we all got in a limo to head to the Muckenthaler mansion. When we got there, we all put our dresses on and then helped the bride get her dress on...all 50 pounds of it... :) Gigi looked so beautiful!

Their wedding was absolutely beautiful! I started crying as soon as Gigi's "walk down the aisle" song started...she looked so happy! The ceremony was so special since Josh's dad was the officiant. I think all the bridesmaids were crying! After the ceremony, it was time to party! We were all starving since we hadn't had much to eat. The dinner was so yummy! I think Alyssa and I cleared our plate in 5 minutes! After dinner, I got to hang out with my fiance and some of my closest friends. We had a lot of fun dancing and watching Josh and Gigi dance together as husband and wife. All day, I made it a point to focus on Gigi's wedding day without thinking too much about my upcoming I could make sure I remembered every minute of it. However, when it came time for the last dance, I danced with Andrew and I couldn't help but think about how excited I am for our big day!

Congratulations you two...I can't begin to tell you how happy I am for you both and the life you have ahead of you. I know God will continue to bless your relationship together as Husband and Wife. I look forward to spending a lot of "married couple" times with the two of you in the future. Your wedding was beautiful...Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day. I love you both!
