"Stop the car, lay on the grass,
the planets spin and we watch space pass."
- So Much Beauty in the Dirt, Modest Mouse
Where to begin when it comes to Carlos & Courtney's wedding day?
Well, being alumni to the college, the ceremony was held at Frost Chapel at Berry College in Rome, Georgia. The reception was at the Rome History Museum.
The best man said in his toast that Carlos knew he had to find and know himself first before he could find the most perfect person. He found his soul mate once he did and lucky enough for Carlos, she knows herself just as much.
There is a quote that states "no love is ever the same." The love between Courtney and Carlos is exactly that quote, one like no other.
The way they look at each other you know exactly what they are thinking. They have got love in their eyes that will last an eternity. Cheers to you, Courtney and Carlos. We hope you have the best adventure you could possibly have. We wish you the best of luck through all the sunny days and turbulence along the way.

The sparkler exit was extended out into the road. We had a cop pull up and looked around. A lot of the guests thought he was going to tell them to move off the streets... he blocked the road so we could do the exit. He grabbed a sparkler and joined the crowd. He then made sure Courtney & Carlos made it to the hotel and congratulated them on his loud speaker. Such a sweet thing to do! Thank you Rome police department!
Seattle was a short trip but a blast! I loved every minute of it. I flew out there Thursday night and stayed until Tuesday.
Friday my aunt, Tonya, and I went to the EMP museum and drove around the city.
Lounged outside in the beautiful weather and played with Sleater & Ruby.
We had dinner with some of my cousins that I hadn't met until now! Very nice people!
Saturday we went to Alki Beach for brunch. I got out of the car and my phone dropped in the sewer. Thankfully I was due for an upgrade.. So we made an unexpected trip to AT&T to get a new phone.
I had everything backed up so I didn't lose anything. (Back up your stuff people!)
I put my toe in the Pacific ocean for the first time. I love the west coast!
Sunday Tonya, Shireen & I went to the San Juan Islands/ Friday Harbor and went whale watching.
We were literally on a boat all day long. And OF COURSE! the only person on the boat to get sick was the person sitting behind me. I had to give her mother a dramamine and she was good. Never fails.
We saw a bunch of Orca whales and the sunset was gorgeous.
Monday we played tourist and went all around the city like the market, the Fremont troll, the house boats.
The city was beautiful as was the weather. I would move there in a heartbeat... (don't tell my grandfather that!)
Most of the photos were taken with my Canon.. some my phone.
Kurt Kobain's guitars and sweaters
My fan girl self giggled in excitement when I saw these two.
