My maids!

With all the wedding talk and craziness going down I have the honor of being able to turn to my 4 Merry Maids with whatever I need. Its pretty awesome, becasue when I think of them, even this early in the game they all have melded into an amazing group and have all taken on certain rolls.

My Matron of Honour(she deserves the u) is my amazing sister Whitney. She's incredible, I was the Maid of Honor in her wedding and am thrilled that she is taking the first spot in mine. She is the #1 planner, she has been on top of everything, making sure everyone is in the loop. Even though she's in San Diego she drops everything to go wherever I need her.
 My best friend Heather has taken on a similar role, but she's down the street. She's like my day to day planner, she's like the San Diego liaison when Whit is too busy.

Michelle is my lets-go-get-a-drink-and-talk-about-it bridesmaid! Always there to bring some fun into the mix(as if this 4 some were boring). She's always there to do whatever and make things smooth as possible!

And last but certainly not least is my dearest cousin Courtney. Court is my San Jose sister, if anyone is more excited about this wedding than I am it's DEFINITELY Courtney. She has already come into town to go wedding dress shopping and has already booked many other trips down so she can be involved in as much as possible.

 And I couldnt possibly forget my littlest girl, Rylee who will be The Flower Girl. She is taking this role VERY seriously and one time mom was talking to me about flowers, not wedding flowers, just regular old garden flowers, and rylee over hears this, comes running and says "BUT IM THE FLOWER GIRL!!" as if she was being left out of some important conversation! I couldn't be happier to have these 4.5 ladies by my side on my Big Day!!!

The wedding site

Over the years, scott and I would have those "where would you our wedding to look like" conversations. Scott would always throw out things like, can I wear white? Or blue? I knew from there that we wouldn't be having a traditional wedding(no he WON'T be wearing white or blue). We had long ago ruled out the beach, or a church and always came back to the thought of a low key backyard wedding. Something more "us" we always said. We have always been more concerned with getting all our friends and family in one place to have an awesome party with good food and drinks, then about what glorious ballroom we'd be dancing our first dance as Mr and Mrs in. So it didn't take us long to decide that Mom and Dads backyard would be the natural choice. Not to mention that 30 years ago, this year, my Auntie Stacey and Uncle Larry had their wedding reception in mom and dads backyard, only few short months after they had finished the build!! I feel like dad is always looking and me, mom and whit saying NO MORE PARTIES, whoops...sorry dad, this is the biggest party of my life :) but all joking aside dad was happy(i think)to get his yard finished up and not have to spend $$$$ on a location we would borrow for only a few short hours. So the backyard "wedding site", as it has been dubbed, is in full swing. The landscape architect has been called, property lines have been staked(thanks to Scott and uncle Fred!) and it will be a magical wonderland before we know it. I'm not planning on posting many picture, I don't want to spoil the surprise, but I will post one or two "before" pictures so you can appreciate all the hard work that will be going into this fantastic day! Stay tuned!!!!
