Bride’s Log : Day Six Part IV : Time for Some Disney Magic

The morning quickly became the past as I left the limo, did our first look and checked into the magic that is the Adventureland Suite. I considered the worst behind me, there was no reason not to be on a happy high.

Bride’s Log : Day Six Part III : The Bridezilla Moment

This was the limo ride of breaking points. I was just having an unbelievably challenging time having fun by this time and starting to feel like I was going to be sick. Maybe it was nerves, maybe disappointment from getting ready. I’ll never know. I just know that this ride was saved by quite the dose of Disney magic. :)

When it came time for getting ready, I really felt like the movies had severely lied about what it’s supposed to be like. Even with all the gorgeous music videos I’ve watched of real brides’ wedding days. Sweet snippets of brides and grooms interacting with their family so endearingly, bridesmaids laughing together while causing the bride to sneak a smile. From my own personal perspective, this…

This was the limo ride from hell. I was just having an unbelievably challenging time having fun by this time and starting to feel like I was going to throw up. Maybe it was nerves, maybe disappointment. I’ll never know. I just know that this ride ended with quite the dose of Disney magic. :)

We piled into the limo, all eleven of us. Myself, Rebekah, Tatjana, Courtney, Catie, Cailin, Lilith, my…

Bride’s Log : Day Six Part I : Suit Up!

I’m sorry these last couple recaps have sounded so negative. The wedding experience really wasn’t. I swear! It does get better! Once we got to the resort, it was 100% magical. I think that it was just dealing with the reality of people’s selfishness really hit me hard on a day I was supposed to be in a constant high during. It was a really big disappointment to me when things didn’t go how I’d…

Comikaze Expo 2014: Erick’s Line Up

Comikaze Expo 2014: Erick’s Line Up

My friends have called me the cosplay nazi. Which sounds really bad…but that is caused from my almost obsessive nature to really know a costume down to it’s core and origins. I get a little crazy over the details and finesse of it all. And when choosing to do comic book cosplays as Erick has, there is no better reference than the actual source material. I refused to even begin making plans for…

Bride’s Log : Day Five Part V : Mother Nature Gets Excited

dayfivept05I don’t think anyone plans for an earthquake. They’re highly unpredictable. I think our reactions that night were too. All I can say is Mother Nature was beyond excited for our impending nuptials. There is no other explanation. :D For those that heard the stories or were around for the wedding, you’ll recall that there was a 5.1 earthquake the night before the wedding. Buildings swayed for some,…

By the time we arrived at the rehearsal dinner location, we were running about ten minutes late, but everyone had settled in on their own and I was very very glad we had kept the dinner strictly to wedding party and their dates. I can’t imagine how much more of a headache it would have been to try co-ordinating out-of-town family members and keep everyone happy. With the smaller group, we…

Comikaze Expo 2014 : Cosplay Plans & Pending Line Up

So now that wedding stuff is well over, pictures and video have been received, and I’m slowly giving away any non-sentimental wedding leftovers, I’ve slowly been getting to get back into old routines…like planning for conventions!

This Halloween, we will find ourselves once again attending Comikaze Expo in Los Angeles. I love going to that con. It’s just so laid-back for me and last year, it was…

I had asked for our photographers to be present for the rehearsal dinner, but they also took some shots from the rehearsal. Mostly to help them plan around where to be on the wedding day. These are some photos they captured. It was really fantastic of them to share these photos with us. It was completely unexpected and extremely appreciated. :)
