3 weeks and 4 days after we were married we packed up the good ol' Penske truck and headed to the great state of Oregon. The drive was pretty good but unloading the truck left a little to be desired. Since we're clearly only comfortable when we're driving in a rental car, we packed up and that night headed north. We visited some awesome family in WA and then made our way to Seattle to my step-brother's wedding.
The couple chose to have photographs done before the big event to keep the day uninterrupted (brilliant choice, just like some other highly intelligent newlyweds I know) so we were to be there early. An hour and a half early. We were in two (2) photographs within that time and so we were free to wander the shores of the lake adjacent to the property.
he book? Ashley spent the better part of an entire year prior to their wedding folding all the paper cranes herself. They hung on monofilament from the event tent, decorated willow branches lining the aisle, and graced some of the dining tables.
This whole fancy wedding business was a blast, but it truly made me appreciate the simplicity of ours so much more.
