• My First Week as a MRS.

    The next day after we got married we took off for a 2 day honeymoon to Oceanside. We had the best time just relaxing and sitting on the deck drinking beers and eating. We enjoyed many meals out and long walks down the Pier. Our last night there we had a beautiful sunset. After a quick trip home to unpack and repack we took off to Vegas to meet Grant’s brother. Adam flew in from San Francisco so he could have his first weekend in Vegas.  We had such a fun trip. Our first night we went straight to Dick’s Last Resort, we had so much fun there a few years…

  • My 1950’s Wedding Decor

    A major part of our wedding planning was coming up with how we would decorate. I found these cheap flamingos at a garden store. I decided early on I didn’t want to spend too much money on flowers.

I knew from the start that I wanted a candy/cake table with…

  • Wedding Part Three…The Party

    After the wedding it was time to PARTY! We have a tradition in my family and that is we all flip off the camera lol. Here we are signing the marriage licence to make it official! This is my NZ family, they came out just for the wedding and it was great to have them there! My dad started up his dragster and did a mini cackle fest. It was such a great party that I didn’t want it to end, but sadly everything must end at some point. (all of my photos were taken by Jerry Foss and Richard Wong, the best photographers ever!)

  • My Wedding Part Two

    I made my grand arrival to the wedding at 5:30 pm in a hot rod with my dad driving us. We pulled up in the car and walked down the aisle while everyone else was already seated and waiting. I was so nervous I was shaking! Luckily I was able to laugh a few times to relieve some of my nervousness, if not I think I might have fainted! Here we are exchanging the rings.  Finally we are a married couple. Mr. and Mrs. Torrens! At this moment it was so amazing to know that I am actually married and I no longer have to plan and worry about the…
