3 weeks from tomorrow?!!!

Wow, time really does fly.

I realize I've been horrible about updating this blog, but we've been busy.

We sold my condo, moved, were homeless for 2 weeks (stayed with friends and family), and moved again this last weekend. We're going to stay put for awhile!

So that's the life update, now on to the wedding.

in the past month, we:
1) met with church contacts to start planning the ceremony
2) confirmed menu with the caterer
3) started planning the music for the reception
4) got our marriage license!
5) met with the photographers
6) started planning church and wedding flowers
7) started a checklist of all the little things that still need to be done. yikes!

Thanks to everyone for the support during this busy time!

See you VERY soon!

We've Moved!

We're homeowners! Our new address:
9620 SW Cypress Street
Beaverton, OR 97005
We moved in over the weekend and have started working away on making this house our own.
Zack's now completed 4 home projects! It's fun to be able to make something our own.

Another website....

I've created another website that contains all our wedding information in one place. It tells you the time and place of the wedding and reception.


One more update for those of you who have been asking:

visiting the winery...

It seems like I've been visiting a lot, but there's so much planning involved. It really has helped to see the site at different times of the year.

We went in early spring and the vines were bare:

I went again this weekend with my parents and Ira, my friend and planner extraordinaire.

It was beautiful and the vines have grown so much since the last visit. We figured out table arrangements and some other logistics. We had enough time to spare that we were able to taste some wines as well.

It seems like the days are just flying by lately. This past weekend, Zack and I spent a lot of time focusing on the wedding.

We updated our registries at:




So far, we just have these 2 registries. We were hoping to register at Home Depot too since we're going to be new home owners, but they're not accepting registries. Still need to figure out a third registry....stay tuned.

Family Time

We got to spend some quality time with Zack's family a few weekends ago.

Zack's grandpa was in town, and it was perfect timing, as we were able to celebrate father's day!

Congrats to Maggie on her graduation and amazing job at her dance recital.

a few changes....

I've officially changed colors: navy and orange have become our colors.... for now.
This change will definitely affect flower choices, but I'm excited about the change.

2 more items to check off the list:
1) we have our bridesmaid dresses. yeah!
2) we put down a deposit for our cake at Beaverton Bakery. Still working on flavors and designs but it was a big decision.

Invitations are currently being printed. I can't believe how everything is starting to come together.
