The wedding extravaganza... PICTURES!!!

Day 1: Thursday, Rehearsal Dinner
Location: Emily's Parents House, Minnetonka, MN

For our rehearsal dinner the wedding party, and their significant others, headed over to my parent's house for some food (Famous Dave's), fun, and sun!

Day 2: Friday, Grooms Dinner
Location: HHH Metrodome, Minneapolis, MN

We were lucky enough to be able to take the wedding party, along with the family that had come in town, to a Minnesota Twins game. Thanks to Mike's parents we were able to take 48 of our closest friends and family to the game and were able to sit in the home run porch. We had so much fun. We also want to thank Matt, mike's brother, for taking such great pictures of the rehearsal and groom's dinners. If it wasn't for you we wouldn't have any pics from these events. Too bad we didn't get you in any of the pictures! If any of my family took any let me know so I can include all of you in the pics as well!

Day 3: Wedding
Locations: Westwood Lutheran Church in St. Louis Park, MN & International Market Square in Minneapolis, MN

We don't have any of these pics yet, but will post some when we get them. I do want to thank all of our family for coming to celebrate our marriage, and to my maid of honor, Bree, who did a GREAT job, I couldn't have made it through without her, Mike and my Mom. A special thanks to my parents for making much of this weekend possible, we really couldn't have done it without you!

Day 4: Sunday Brunch
Location: Mike and Emily's house, Eden Prairie, MN

We don't have many pics from this event, but here is what we have. It was so nice to see everyone one last time before they headed out of town.

Wedding, 07/19/2008

We are married, finally! Its crazy that this day finally came and is sad how fast it went. We had a busy wedding week with people coming into town the Tues before and leaving the Sunday after. We thought we would be peopled out by the end of the week, but were surprised to find out just how much we missed everyone being there. The week of our wedding went so well, we were so lucky. Thank you to everyone who was able to be a part of our wedding week, especially the wedding party who helped us so much throughout the week. Our wedding went perfectly and we are finding ourselves wishing that it could have lasted longer. Now its back to real life. Neither of us had enough vacation to take a honeymoon right away so it will have to wait until this winter. So its back to reality, oh well!!! We will make sure to post some more pics and our video when they become available.

Bridal Shower, 06/29/08

Today was my bridal shower and it was a blast. It was so nice to see everyone again and I was surprised to see how far people drove to be there. We played many fun games including a 'how well do you know emily?' and 'make a wedding dress out of toilet paper' game. Here are the pictures from the event.

Last Friday I finally received my invitations and rushed to get them out before the postage increase. It was such a relief to get them out and now I get to patiently wait to see who will accept and who will reject. The only bummer is that we put my parents address as the return address so I have to either stop by their house or call daily to see if we have any mail (you can click on the images to make them easier to see/read)

Our Babies... Motor and Cade

Since I haven't posted any pics of our babies I thought this would be a good time to do so. As you can tell they are adjusting well!

Building a House.... Moving in

So, these pictures are mainly for our family, but, if any of you are curious feel free to take a look. Between picasa and me not putting the camera on the right setting the pictures got a little dark, but it will give you an idea of what the house looks like. Keep in mind that we really haven't decorated yet, we need a few things like pillows for our bed, towels, a coffee table/end tables, etc and things look a little different in real life. Hopefully we will get some of these items for our wedding and will be able to post some new pictures in 6 months when things look better. We also hope to have enough money after the wedding to purchase a bedroom set to make our bedroom look more complete...then we can move the existing furniture (dresser and night stand) into our downstairs bedroom and things will look much better!
