Joey & Bree

As many of you know, we just purchased our first home and have been spending every waking moment (and penny) remodeling and transforming it into a beautiful home! Instead of the traditional wedding registry, Joey and I decided to do our registry through our travel agent. We hope to use the money to escape to Jamaica's beautiful Sandals Resort in the week following our wedding. Thank you all for making it possible for us to have the honeymoon of our dreams :)

About the bride:
Bree grew up in a very small town in the central valley, Woodlake, CA. A town where there were no stoplights or fast food restaurants. Upon high school graduation she decided to migrate from a small town to a big city. She received her bachelor's degree in psychology from San Diego State University.  Bree is currently pursuing her Master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling with a specialization in cognitive disabilities. Bree enjoys going to the dog park with Joey and the pups, hot yoga, shopping and drinking wine with her girlfriends.

About the groom:
Joe is a native of San Diego, CA. He graduated from El Capitan High School and immediately began pursuing his life long dream of becoming a firefighter. He graduated paramedic school and got hired on with the City of San Diego as a firefighter/paramedic. He enjoys long walks on the beach, candle lit dinners, and doing laundry (according to Bree). According to Joe, he likes working on their house, wrenching on his bronco, and smoking cigars.

Dream Vacation in Scotland

We wanted a very special wedding ceremony and honeymoon trip, but we knew that it would require a tremendous amount of planning, organizing, and networking. We chose to have Kelly and her team do everything for us. We are pleased to share that our dream wedding in a Scottish castle and the honeymoon through Scotland and Ireland exceeded our expectations! Every detail was perfect. "If you can dream it, they can plan it!"

Our wedding day at Duns Castle, Duns, Scotland. 9/9/09. Every detail from the bagpiper to the photographer was expertly taken care of by Kelly and her team.
We had the opportunity to experience many Edinburgh pubs. One of our favorites seemed to have been named after Craig!
Our B & B room in Edinburgh was with the wonderful Shanks family. They catered to us and made sure our stay was fabulous. The Royal Bank of Scotland provided an hour long fireworks show over Edinburgh Castle, which we were able to easily view from our bedroom window.

As we traveled through Ireland, we saw so many beautiful sights. One day we stopped the car to take a few photos and we had the chance to observe a sheepdog skillfully herd sheep from one pasture to another. It was at this spot that we chose to take one of our special "feet" photos. Sadly, we have determined that neither of us are very photogenic, and we have the unfortunate skill of always blinking when we take photos. We are proud to show everyone all of our feet photos from around the world because, "Feet Don't Blink!"
