Open House

We had a beautiful open house (thanks to Scott's family) in Maple Valley, Washington. It was a perfect evening in Seattle at Scott's parents lake house. I am so grateful for all the work they put into having a relaxed, fun open house.

Jennie made this... isn't she crafty?
Aww Ashley's famous chocolate chip cookies!!!
Family :)
So many helpers to make this day work!
Scott's cute grandparents! They traveled a long way just for us. I love them already!
We miss you Mike and Lacey!


The reception was held at my parent's house in Carlsbad, California. It was perfect August weather. I was so grateful to be surrounded by so many family and friends. The food was amazing, and the music was perfect (thanks Kanahele family for providing both).

First dance to "Is This Love" by Bob Marley.

Thanks friends for coming from New York, Utah, Seattle, and Hawaii. It meant the world to Scott and me.
I love you.
