photo heavy


It's not too often that I get a chance to write a blog post. However, today I made some special time for you and I.

It's getting close, our wedding day that is. In only 47 short days, my name will become Aubrey O'Laskey. My initials will be AMO. I'm ready.
I have been checking this countdown daily, as if the time will go by faster because of it. 


Wedding planning has come along quite nicely. We've crafted, bought gifts, had my first dress fitting, decided on my hair and I am pretty much ready to walk down this aisle and cry my face off from happiness.

Many people have given me the advice to take it all in because the day will fly by. I am going to focus on that, because I am already thinking, "what will I do when I don't have a wedding to plan?"

This is our venue. We recently visited with the home owner and our wedding planner. Everything became real and it made me so EXCITED.



We made all of our nifty little signs this weekend, including our "guest book"



And for Father's Day, I bought my dad a big Salted Caramel Apple Pie. We enjoyed it so much. It was made by the same place that will be making our pies for our wedding! Levi's Pies...


With both of us working so much, it's been really important for both of us to make time for each other. On Sunday mornings we have been taking Porter on a walk to get coffee. It's my favorite part of the weekend.

We've gone out on real dates where I actually put make up on and curl my hair. 


And have gone to the beach...lake.

had to add in the fact that these new trendy bikins have to be tucked in for proper tanning. 
We recently just had one of our infamous indoor picnics. Oh, how I adore indoor picnics. Mostly because of the cheese consumption.

Working at the Thunderbird Lodge has been an amazing experience. It is by far the most beautiful place I have ever had the pleasure working at. The smell of the pines and the lake right outside my kitchen window has been utter bliss.





They even wrote an article in their magazine about me!

I also love that Tyler works with me on larger events. I am pretty positive, the ladies love him at the cooking classes. 

at the annual staff Memorial Day BBQ
Better facial expression haha....

Oh and Porter fancies the private beach entrance.



We had the pleasure of going to two weddings in the month of May too! It was so fun to see how other people invision and execute their big day. It was inspiring!



Wedding Number Two:
We don't even know these people, but we took a photo with them at one wedding!



I better get going. Until next time!

Wedding Things

Wow! I had no idea so many of you still visited my internet abode! What a lovely surprise.

Love you, mean it.

Well, we are almost 100 days away from our wedding. I am soooo ready! I can't wait.

I thought I would update all of you lads how the planning is going and questions I have for you.

I had no idea how hard it was to choose a song to walk down the aisle to. You see, Tyler is not a crier. As much as I wished he shed a tear when he sees a newborn child or cried when a dog is killed in a movie, he's just not the type. Which is why I hope he cries when I walk down the aisle. It took me three weeks to find a song and I finally found one. I'm not going to share it just yet. Sorry!

We are using a videographer! It wasn't in the budget, but I figured I could eat rice cakes for a few weeks and save my grocery money to pay for one. It's really killing two birds with one stone, eating rice cakes is 1) healthy and cardboard-ish 2) cheap.

We are using Mabble Media. Check out how great they are! I can't wait.

No, not this one.

I was not going to, but after working at a bridal salon and putting veils on ladies made me rethink it. It's really going to be the only time in my life I can wear a piece of tulle on my head and look normal. I was really anti veil, but I feel like the moment I put it on, I will feel like a true bride.

I am not wearing it a second after the ceremony is done.

Today we are meeting with a florist. I was hoping to get away with not having a florist, but then I realized we need boutonnieres, boquets and some flowers for tables.


Our wedding invites turned out major. I was going to do them on Minted, but opted to go with a local wedding invite store called Paper Moon in Reno. I thought it would be more expensive but it was actually less expensive!

I actually hand wrote all of the RSVP cards AND addressed each one. After, I felt I deserved a gold metal. At least a gold star sticker.




We just booked our honeymoon to England. We are staying in Minchinhampton for 7 days and London for 2. We are excited to travel around England's countryside. Can't wait to try out some really curry and proper tea. 


QUESTIONS FOR YOU:

Any ideas for unique wedding favors?

I need help finding wedding shoes! I am looking for a sandal/wedge that's not too high.
