417 Fashionation 2013

Fashionation is our (417 Magazine's) annual Spring Fashion Show and Party. This year we moved the event to the Gillioz Theatre and it blew up! It was a sold-out event, the first I have ever produced, with 600+ attendees! It was such a fun night featuring 13 local boutiques, eight salons and the six Best Dressed men and women of 417-land. We've heard tons of compliments on how much it improved from the years past. We just got the event video and I couldn't wait to share!

Chris and Ashley's Wedding Weekend

It's a bit over due but better late than never!!

The first weekend in March our families loaded up and hopped a plane to Las Vegas to celebrate Chris and Ashley getting married. We arrived Friday evening and once we got settled we all split up for the bachelor and bachelorette parties. Saturday was basically a free day until we met at the amazing Wynn Buffet for dinner. Sunday was wedding day! It had been a bit chilly up until this point but Sunday was sunny and beautiful and perfect for an outdoor wedding. Chris and Ashley wrote their own vows and they were so touching. Ashley also prepared "vows" for Aidan. It was so sweet. Makes me want to cry again just thinking about it. We are so lucky to have found a new member of our family that will care for Aidan like her own. Love you SIL!! Now on to the pics :)

To see all of my photos check out the Johnson Blurb Prints here.

Ashley's sister Tiffany took a TON of photos too! See those here.
(They are on FB so if you can't get to the link sorry!)

Brandy also took some too! See her's here. 
(Again, FB gallery)

Okay, here we go :) I tried to narrow a little!
Photos are from me, Tiffany and Brandy. Sorry girls, hope that's okay!

On top of Vegas!!

Voodoo didn't last long and we went to Lavo, Ashley's favorite!!

This picture seriously cracks me up. The best part is that Tiffany, the really confused looking one, is taking the pic!!

Real flowers!
Day Two {Saturday}
Breakfast at this amazing place in our hotel


"The Beach" at Mandalay Bay. This was a wave pool and had real sand under the chairs. Too bad it was a bit chilly to swim, even though the water was heated!

Taking a break and enjoying a lovely frozen bevvie.

At the Wynn for dinner

Seriously this was the buffet!! The food was SO fancy.

Dessert bar!
After dinner Tim and I met up with Kelly, Jason and Travis (Chris's friends) and saw comedian Stephen Lynch in our hotel. It was one of the most fun things we did. He. Was. Hilarious.

After the comedy show we headed WAY upstairs to the Mix. 64 floors up to be exact.

This was the view from the bathroom. When I sat down to pee my knees were about a foot from the glass. Scary!
