I am super excited!!! We are doing a 7 day cruise stopping in Juneau, Sitka, and Ketchikan Alaska and then Victoria BC!! I know we are going to the sled dog camp for a shore excursion but we aren't sure yet what else we want to do. Well, I really want to go Ocean fishing, but it is over $250 per person, so I am not sure that is in the budget. I am hoping people might buy us Onboard Credit on our ship as a wedding present, but I don't know at this point!!
Then, once we get back we are driving back home to SoCal, camping along the way. I think we are going to stay for 4 days at Jedediah Smith State Park, probably my most favorite camp grounds ever!! I am looking forward to sitting next to a river or stream and just reading. Should be super relaxing!!
So, anyway . . . I am so excited about the wedding and the honeymoon . . . the only hard part is packing . . . a weeks worth of 80+ weather in Oregon before the wedding, coldish in Alaska, but formal wear needed for the cruise, then a weeks worth of camping so jeans and t-shirts!! Now that is some crazy packing. I already started, but now I am worried I am forgetting something, or don't have nice complete outfits!! Oh well.

Wish me luck, and a non-stressful week!!

They are polka-dot vellum over an olive branch print from Paper-Source. Plus some pretty brown and white bakers twine. Of course they are going to be hung up with mini clothes pins!! And you want to see what they will be hanging on?? It's a very cool stand . . . made with old fence wood and chicken wire!
Pretty huh?? Getting more excited by the moment. Just need to finish the last few cards for a few surprise guests!!

(we missed Amnesia and Widmer , because they were closed, and decided we had some good ones picked out so we decided not to go to a couple others)
Here are some fun pictures of the day (not sure how we got some many with eyes closed - I promise we really weren't drinking that much!!
Deanna, my brother's girlfriend and M.
My brother looking fabulous!!
Another fabulous shot!
All I can say is . . . "Wow!"
Oh so cute!
It was such a fun day, and we did make some decisions on beer!!! Lompoc C-Note and either Hopworks Organic Hub Lager or Laurelwood Mother Lode Golden (whichever is less expensive). If any of you ever make it to Portland, be sure to check out some of these microbrews!! One we all loved was Hopworks Double IPA (too bad it didn't come in a keg!!) Anyway . . . we are so close now, I can't even believe it!

Her custom ties
Very familiar look from her invites
Pretty purple flowers
If I wasn't having the groomsmen wear flipflops then I would have made them get cute socks!!!
I love the purple dresses with the pink shoes.
Super sweet hair pieces!!
Isn't that just such a super cute wedding. I would love to have my wedding featured on Style Me Pretty . . . I do dream though. All these pics were taken from Style Me Pretty, 1, 2, 3.
