Some Wedding Preview

Our wedding was just wonderful--we had beautiful weather, unbelievable support from our family and friends, and so much love! Here is just a glimpse of the day... (professional photos to follow)

Beautiful flowers and seating cards, flags to honor Armed Forces Day!

Some of the decorations from the wedding reception--these beautiful flowers were courtesy of Jesse's aunt Kay, and her helpful children and florist friend! We're so lucky to have had her talent and generosity!

My aunt Denise, who came all the way from North Carolina, and my Mom, enjoying the breakfast at Judy's house!

Erin, Renee, and Nichole getting ready at Judy's beautiful home before the wedding!

Yet another joyful moment with my 5 month old nephew and ring bearer, Quinton!

Honeymoon Adventures!

Our Honeymoon!

Well we are finally married and settling back from our honeymoon! We spent a little over a week in Napa Valley, California and Yosemite National Park in California. The last day of our adventure put us in Seattle, Washington to visit Jeffrey! We've included a view photos to preview our trip!

Jesse and I at the famous "Space Needle"!

With Jeffrey at Public Market Central in downtown Seattle!

The first ever Starbucks Coffee in downtown Seattle! Notice the band playing just outside...
This city truly has the best skyline! Jeff and I at the Puget Sound.

Relaxing with some coffee outside of Starbucks.. what a wonderful visit to "sunny" Seattle! (well, at least it was that day)
