We took a little trip down to Los Angels at the beginning of the month and spent a day at Disneyland. To find out about how we spent our day and to see all of our pictures, head over to our site AfterGlobe to check it out. We had so much fun even if it was 99 degrees!
Everyone loves our sweet little chihuahua, ChiChi. Sure, she barks when people she doesn't know well first come over, but she's just doing her job of helping to keep us safe. Once many guests start coming through the door she stops and instead starts checking out who's going to hold her. She really got around at our wedding celebration

The cupcakes for our Portland wedding celebration was one of our favorite parts of the day. When we had our amazing tasting at Cupcake Jones, we knew there wasn't any other cupcakery that we wanted for our celebration at home. Their cupcakes are amazing, come in so many different flavors, are completely made from scratch and use as many local ingredients, as possible. Plus, they are all around super yummy! They will even deliver the cupcakes to your door and set them up for you, if needed. We opted to have our maid of honor, Nicki, set them up for us, but we're so grateful for the delivery. If you are in the Portland area and are wanting cupcakes for any event, you will want to get them from Cupcake Jones. There is no other cupcakery that we would want to use and can't say enough good things about them.

Yes, she is available for hire to do them for you, too.
The last thing we had to do to get ready for all of our guests was the food. One of the most important things! Again, we wanted to reflect the Hawaiian Islands in the choices we made for our food. We brought some food items back from Maui with us and planned the rest of our menu around foods you would find on the Islands.

Even with a celebration after the wedding, it was important for us to have a little something to give to all of our guests that celebrated with us at home. It was also important to us to have that gift reflect our wedding in Hawaii. With that in mind, we brought back macadamia nut Kisses that you can only get in Hawaii and Honolulu Cookie Company's Hawaiian shortbread cookies for everyone.
