Bethany and Gage get Hitched!

Bethany and Gage got married 8.6.2011 (I know, its taken me forever to get these posted!) The wedding ceremony took place in my parent's backyard and the reception was at Gage's parent's house. Here are some photos of that lovely day:

I made our bouquets before the guests arrived......it was so hot and humid that I had to completely re-curl my hair before the ceremony! :)

The little ring bearer.

Gage and his father.

My brother John and his friend Csilla.

Chaos before the processional!

The butterfly release.....look closely and you can see some of them!

One of the monarchs landed on Beth's bouquet right after the ceremony.

The whole gang; me, my mom, sister Bethany and new brother Gage, my dad and brother John.

Here are some photos of the reception!

the pretty......
and the not so pretty...... but both were delicious :)

Posing for the flowergirl.

Our Wedding Website!

Brian and I have had this site up and running for months now but now that the wedding is getting closer (a week and a half away!) I have wedding on the brain and had to share something about it.
So check out our site!.......unless you're sick of hearing about my wedding already. In which case you should probably not come back here until October because I'm probably gonna talk about it. A lot.

The website has cute pictures of the two of us as well as information about our bridal party and our favorite spots in Dayton.

The Decay of Detroit

Not to be totally depressing today but I came across these images some time ago and had to share them. They are both beautiful and completely frightening. They remind me of some movie that takes place in the future where people have forgotten all the things of the past - art, culture, hard work, education. What's scary is this is not the future, this is NOW! Its difficult to look at these images knowing that nope, there wasn't any war that took place. The city has not been bombed. There was no alien invasion or zombie attack. The apocalypse has NOT happened yet!
