McCloud Guest House & Historic Hotel Wedding

Matt and Marissa married near Mount Shasta in the tiny town of McCloud. (At the McCloud Guest House to be specific.) A navy blue and pink palate, an eclectic vintage theme with beautiful handmade paper goods and a reception menu that would delight any "foodie" and you have one of my favorite weddings from this year!

You're listening to Dave Matthews, "Crash" (yes, yet again). I have always loved this song, loved it more when they featured it on Roswell (be still my heart... LOVE that show!, and for whatever reason it makes me think of M & M. I distinctly and excitedly remember that Zooey Deschanel's version of "Really got a Hold on me" or "Hold on Me" or whatever the actual title of the song is- was played at the reception- a song I always love, but it wasn't up on my server, :( , so, M & M, you must be subjected to my own musical tastes... MUA-HA-HA-HA!

A bonus point to anyone who can find the accidental self-portrait of me hidden in one of these images... think reflections... ;)

Where's Emily?

Enjoy!

(and yes, I have been out sick, run down and exhausted for like, ever. Trying to catch up, and remarkably, starting to speed up on processing somehow! Also managed to get to the store today to start preparing for the disc burning sweatshop of 2009! Gotta figure out the label situation still... new printer, incompatible program with the old laptop. Hmmph.)

Parade to the Reception:

Immediately following the ceremony, instruments were dispersed amongst the guests and everyone marched down the road from the ceremony site, back to the reception building, inside a historical hotel. I ran off to get my car and staked out certain parts along the road so I could get everyone as they went by. (I was also a little worried about hiking back up to the car in the pitch dark in the middle of the woods when it was time to go back to the hotel!lol)
