oh yeah, it's a party

main course the engagement party / days of shopping amounts to this

the ultimate in sexy.

like the décor? brought to you courtesy of frank and mom's artistic expertise.

more fun:

our awesome chocolate cake with raspberry filling; casey and i in our coordinating outfits; the ultimate in cuteness with my cousin audrey and her dad joe; me and janel outside the party; casey and my signature pose; frank stealing the show with his awesome belly dance

such was the second night

i love my girls!

look how cute we are!

ok people, let's take this slow

so to recount our entire adventure in one posting would be considered cruel and unusually lengthy, so we're processing it in controlled dosages!

apéritif: the welcome dinner / a fabulous meal cooked at mom's house with plenty of family to go 'round

drinking. tarte. general yumminess abound.

oh and fun people too!

such was the first night.

my maid of honor...let me show her to you

janel king is my maid of honor. we met her in college- casey had a class with her making a film. now we hang out a lot.

she even lived with us for a couple of years. but now she lives in anaheim.

janel has a cute cat. and four brothers and sisters, all with 'j' names.

she likes animals. she's a teacher. she teaches animals six-graders in lynwood.

janel is writing a young adult book and also does special effects makeup. halloween is always fun.

start of

hi! we're finally getting married after dating for six and a half years. we decided on a long engagement, meaning that we'll probably get married sometime in september of 2010. yep, we're sliding into marital bliss just one month before casey turns 30 and five months before i do.

we got engaged while on a zip-line tour in Costa Rica in february of 2008. some fifty feet up in a tree of all places!
