Festivities of Wedding-ness!

Wedding weeks are so fun and full of excitment. Well, and maybe a little stress. We are trying to keep that minimal with my sweet sister Jonna but there is just a LOT to do. I wanted to check in and share some fun photos... we have had quite the week. Each day is jam packed and I keep forgetting to take more photos.

Monday = Painting their house! We made awesome progress, they just have SO many walls. I love the colors. Here is the color of one part of the kitchen....


Jonna's new last name is going to be Cross. This wall is going to be their "cross" wall with lots of fun crosses on it :-)


Then our next big task was the seating chart... it went better than expected, actually :-). Jonna made a HUGE blow-up of the tables and we went to town. Good team work! I will take some photos of their cute house when it is all done. I am hoping my sister will start a blog too, right sister? :)

Tuesday - Full of errands, photoshoot with my family from Seattle, favors, seating place cards, typing up the program... the list goes on.


These are my beautiful cousins! Bailey in pink... Zoe in blue! I took photos of them yesterday. They live in Seattle but I LOVE spending time with them this week :-). Don't you love their eyes? I do!

Phew! Today is Wednesday. Only 3 more days till my sister is no longer just a girlfriend or fiance. She will become a WIFE! Joining me in this life as a wife. I am sooooo excited! Off to work on my Matron of Honor Speech....

Love!

The week leading up to my wedding was one of my very favorites with all of the last minute projects and working on our house with the people I love most - I'm sure your sister will always remember this! Have a great rest of the week!!

I had so much fun the week before my wedding! We had so much fun with the seating chart, too! My mom and I created and giant poster board with stickie notes so we could move people around as we found new and different places and what not! It worked great!

Enjoy the rest of the week and have so much fun at the wedding!!
