Our Wedding & Las Vegas

Happy 4th of July weekend! It is 70 degrees today and feels like summer. About time right? It has been a crazy few weeks for us with our wedding on June 18th, followed by our honeymoon to Las Vegas, and a family vacation to Eagle Crest Resort in Central Oregon this past week. It feels great to be home! =]

The wedding was beautiful and I must say I was very pleased with the way the ceremony turned out and the reception. The Elk's Lodge where our reception was held is not the prettiest place in the world, but with the help of Betsy and Steve (my new mother and father in law), my sisters, Trev's sisters, and Trev's Aunt Pam and cousin Bridget, and my two best friends Jen and Pam they made it everything I hoped it would be. I feel so grateful to have so many wonderful people in my life that are willing to help out in every way that they can. I told them what I wanted done and they executed it! Thanks ya'll. =D

Our wedding cake was made by Trevor's co-worker Marie at Marie's Baking Journey. I must say, the cake was delicious! Thank you Marie for making our cake.














Vegas was wonderful and eventful. We ended up staying at the Stratosphere (which is at the end of the Strip towards downtown Vegas and far away from everything!). The day we checked into our hotel, we headed up to our room and unpacked our belongings and took a nap. While we were resting someone tried to get into our room, only their keys wouldn't work! Trev went to the door and took our set of keys with the room and floor number on them to show the couple that we were supposed to be in the room. They headed down stairs and we called the front desk to let them know that they had made a mistake. After the phone call we headed to the Strip to check out the Rivera, Circus Circus, and Treasure Island. I forgot how massive the hotels in Vegas are... we seriously walked 3 miles and by the end of the night our feet were sore, we were exhausted, and all we wanted to do was sleep. When we returned back to our room our keys wouldn't work! Turns out while we were gone security came up to our room, put all our belongings in our bags and took them downstairs so the couple that was trying to get into our room could be in that room! They didn't call, they didn't ask, and instead of just moving the couple to a different room, they moved us! We were livid, tired, and really annoyed (especially me!) and all we got was a free buffet for the mistake that they made. They ended up moving us to the 24th floor and our room was a little bit bigger than the room we were previously in. The rest of our honeymoon was great. We went on a gondola ride in the Venetian and to Madame Tussuad's Wax Museum. We also stopped by Coke World and M&M World. We hit almost all of the hotel/casino's except for Cesar's Palace, The Bilagio, and The Mirage.
