    Hello Everybody!  We’ve uploaded the 900 photos taken by our professional photographer… if you’ve got any more that you took yourself we’d love to have them!  Thanks!

    Thank you to everyone who came to and wished us well for our wedding!  The day was better than either of us expected.

    There’s currently a special on the Westin Minneapolis website for $89/night (prepaid, nonrefundable).  That’s better than the group rate (which expires Friday) so book now!

    Last Sunday was my 26th birthday.  We had a lazy day.  Went bowling, over to Macy’s to clarify some confusion about the flatware on our registry, out to dinner, and then had friends over to play Ticket to Ride and help us eat the DQ ice cream cake.  Ashley brought over her new camera and got some great pictures.

    For those of you looking for Travel options to get to Minnesota for the wedding, Sun Country has great deals on non-stop flights right now to MSP from Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and lots of other cities.

    Thanks to everyone who came to our Wedding Shower Last night! (And to those who couldn’t make it but sent on cards and gifts anyway).  We had a great time and hope that you did too.  Look forward to seeing many of you again on our big day in June.   Some pictures are up!

    So, it’s been a while since our last post, but we’ve been busy wedding planning! We’ve reserved a block of rooms at the Westin Minneapolis for our out-of-town guests (the booking website is iffy, if you have problems just call 1-888-627-8343 and ask for the Nelson-Rodrigues wedding block), and booked a pavilion at Minneapolis’s Boom Island Park for a rehearsal dinner (which all our guests are invited too!).  We also created some gift registries (I enjoy operating the scan-guns), and we took some beautiful engagement photos that we’ll hopefully throw on here soon.  Until then, below are some pictures of us hand letterpressing our save the date cards.  It can get quite messy.  Printing the full invitations will be a big project!

    I went to Hawaii for a week and a half in July this summer for a plant biology conference.  Ruben was jealous, but I swear I was hard at work the whole time!  Mom joined me for most of the time, and we saw some great things together.
