aloha means goodbye too

We just had our very first airline bankruptcy! Aloha, Aloha Airlines! Our inter-island honeymoon carrier has left the building and left us at the mercy of kind partner carriers running in the red probably just less than they were.

Apparently Aloha's demise was further aggravated by competition with go!Airlines. Who's this? I googled this "go!Air" but through the miracle of SEO instead found this must-share video. Hopefully we will be having that much fun too once we get there!

Nothing delights me more than the name and visual identity of the formal wear company we are using for the groomsmen's attire. It's probably one of their older locations in LA, hence the truly awesome sign and lettering style.

We are moving right down the wedding to-do list + finally reached the oh so vital “groom’s attire” action item. Instead of wearing pants that a hundred other men have worn, we bit the bullet and got Nick his very own threads. Dashing!

Really, beyond the communal pants sharing item, fit and style were a huge gray area in our mind, esp since Nick is so tall. Two button, three button, peak, notch, vents, ties, bow ties…its all so confusing at times. I ran across My Haberdasher on one of my favorite Seattle wedding blogs, What Junebug Loves. Jeff Collins offers a personal styling and fitting service. He came to us and gave an extraordinarily thorough consultation and fitting session. It was hugely informative and helpful when narrowing down all the options out there. I am so excited to see the results and fortunately I can see Nick’s attire before the wedding. Bring on the award shows + formal soirées!

less is more

And that's all I have to say about the winner of the great cake knife and spade search!
