All 687

Here is a link to all of the photos. Kudos to Sean Morrison, the coolest wedding photographer (and probably Vancouver Washington high school teacher) ever.

The Student Life

Head: "Angela do your homework."

Angela: "No!"

Head: "Seriously, just get it done."

Angela: "No!"

Head: "Double seriously, if you just do it, then you won't have to worry about it, be less stressed, and get to watch a movie tonight."

Angela: "...hmmm...(lip quiver)...oh man...okay...kind of...I'd probably watch a movie anyways."

When thinking about this last weekend, a few words come to mind: amazing, incredible, magical, down right fun, and of course, whirlwind. Ben and I had the most amazing time getting married and celebrating with our closest friends and family--and what a great bunch they are, especially together. Our only wish was that we would have had more time to talk with everyone, to catch-up, hear what was happening in their lives and just soak the people we love, and rarely get to see, in. That is where the whirlwind part comes just goes so fast. 

Regardless, it was amazing and there will be much more to write about, but below are the "teasers" are wedding photographer sent...I can't wait for the rest, plus to see the photos and videos everyone else took.

Here are some more from Angela, the 2nd photographer:

Cutest, Most Unhappiest Truffle Maker Ever

A few weeks ago, I had this grand idea that Ben and I could make chocolate truffles for the wedding favors. We found these cute boxes, and the thought of truffles inside of them seemed perfect. I asked Ben how much trouble they would be and he said they were time consuming, but we could do it. The idea was grand until last night.

Having made all the filling, Ben started to ball the truffles...all 450 of them...everything is fine. Then the trouble began. After they are balled, the truffles need to be dipped in chocolate and rolled in cocoa powder. The first nine truffles turned out awesome...then something happened, and there was a serious malfunction. We're not sure what happened with the truffles, why they wouldn't settle, but I will say there was chocolate everywhere, a truffle graveyard in the sink, many foul words still hovering in the atmosphere...and one very, super unhappy truffle maker. 

Basically we had to abandon truffle making last night...get a good night's sleep...and then Ben started up at 7:45 a.m. this morning. There have only been a few swear words, but mostly it's pretty quiet in the kitchen, and I'm trying to stay far away. We still have chocolate everywhere, but they seem to be settling...and I can humbly admit that maybe my truffle idea wasn't so time we'll buy....but until then, I hope everyone enjoys the chocolates at the wedding.
