stairs

Today we drove to the North shore and went to the Waimea Valley and up to the Falls. I found the flowers that I have been missing here in Hawaii. Below are a few. This little critter greeted us on the stairs as we started are hike.
this is a hut to some God on the island
Some lilly pads!!




Near tree!!

Wild chickens roam the island



Amber, Alicia's friend, Alicia, myself and Esther

Orchids

The falls and we did not go swimming as the water was very muddy!! Others we swimming.
It was 3/4 mile hike to the falls.
this is what the sky looks like most days--cloudy on the horizon and over the mts even if sunny overhead.
We had to use these stairs to get to and from the car for Alicia's MD appt that was in the pink buildings.

Working this blog

 I created this wedding blog so that we could share information, excitement, and ideas, and to keep it all centralized. I have labeled the posts so that you can easily find the information you need. There is a list of the posts at the right. I have added as many authors as I can think of, but if you know of someone else who would love to be in on the planning, or need the information, PLEASE let me know!! I welcome and love all the input and help I can get! I really want this to be a special time for Mark and Kaitlynn, not a stressed-out-mom time. Please feel free to add to the posts, to edit information as you come across mistakes, or info needing updating. Love you guys! Leslie

The Send Off:

bubbles? rose petals? sparklers? Since their venue didn’t allow anything to be thrown that could potentially litter the grounds, they turned to Ecofetti - which turns out is the same thing used for “snow” on movie sets. It dissolves in water so it’s easily washed away with a hose. This is a great alternative (and eco-friendly for eco-conscious brides) to birdseed, sparklers, rose petals, etc. And, if it gets stuck in your hair, it dissolves when you shower.

Paparazzi exit? guests are given disposable cameras as they head outside to prepare for your exit. Hve the MC encourage those with their own flash cameras to bring themoutside as well. When everyone is in position, the two of you race outside ast he gurest  greet you like a rabid throng of paparazzi trying to cpture photos of a Hollywood's latest power couple arriving for a movie premiere.

decorated car?

photos?

let MC know

change into departure outfits or still in wedding dress?
