Photobooth Pics!

We’re back from our short little escape to Vancouver, and wanted to let you all know that the pics from the photobooth are now up online!  Check them out by logging in here:  Select the Alexa & Ben album and enter the password:  ABB522.  You all took soooo many great photos in the booth at the wedding – we were laughing hysterically going through the book of photostrips you all signed!

BTW, if you were curious where we got the photobooth, it was brought by the amazing ladies of 321 Foto.  We absolutely loved having them at our wedding!

And we’d be remiss if we didn’t put one of our fave photo strips up from the evening.  Sorry, it’s just of us two, but we thought it was crazy fun!




An Overdue Update

Well, we’re down to only 109 days before the wedding and it’s been over a month since we last posted – we’ve been super busy!  So it’s about time that we updated you on everything that’s been going on…

Alexa's Birthday 2009-222Let’s see, where to start?  Well, we celebrated Alexa’s Birthday and the holidays here in Kirkland a few days before Christmas, since we both flew home to spend the 25th with our families for the last time as “single” people (wow, kinda scary, huh?!?!)  It was great to be home with everyone, but it was a bit odd to be apart – we’re definitely looking forward to spending the holidays together next year :)  But to celebrate this year, we chose to make stockings for each other.  Yes, we actually sewed them!  And then of course stuffed them with fun little presents :)  We hung them on our improvised stocking holders (random wine bottles) and put them on our mantle.  As always, I’ve included a cute photo for you to see!

Alexa's Birthday 2009 We also got our engagement photos back from Azzura, and put them up on our new photo wall.  It looks really great!  We can’t wait to add photos from our wedding. *Bonus points to anyone who can name where we got the fancy frame shelf.*

As for wedding planning, we’ve been super busy!  We’ve picked Fiore Blossoms as our florist/decorator, chosen our DJ, Wave Link Music, and our invitations are being designed by Dolce Design!  Check out all the people working on our wedding on our Twitter list: @APandBBetz/our-wedding-vendors. We’ve also been working on a few cool surprises and fun things we won’t talk about just yet.  Gotta have some suspense, right?  We did spend a nice afternoon at the Seattle Wedding Show two weekends ago.  Ok, yeah, not exactly a guy thing – really, I went to eat all the cake tasters :)  Oh, and to have fun with Alexa, of course!

There’s still lots more to do, and only a few months left!  We know many of you are interested in our registries – we’re furiously working on finishing those up, and should have them all set to go in a week or so.  We’ll be sure to post to the blog to let you know.  And someday soon, Alexa will start posting on here too – I know you’re all waiting on the edge of your seat!


Our Engagement Photo

We have been on the lookout for our favorite engagement photo to show up on the Azzura Cafe, our amazing photographer’s blog, and just today noticed it’s now up!  Check it out at

Tania, our photographer, took that photo on a whim when I mentioned I liked the Fish & Chips sign.  So, amidst dodging the rain (which made the bike seats a little wet, btw!), and racing to beat the dwindling sun as it began to set behind dark, impending rain clouds, Alexa and I hopped on these old-style bikes and it turned out to be our favorite photo of the whole shoot!  A big thanks to Azzura for the great shot!
