After some debate, I decided to post our wedding video. Who knows, maybe we’ll become a youtube sensation 🙂 It is definitely not something you see everyday. Thanks again, to my beautiful bridesmaid, Susan Griffiths and maid of honour, Suzie Kennedy for being part of our wedding. You may also recognize the gentlemen sitting in the last row as we come down the aisle. It is Kim Goodwin, known on my website as the amazing creator of customized Marilyn Monroe dolls. His role that day was to do Susan’s makeup and rush her to the ceremony for me. Thanks Kim! Loved having you there.
I have also added a link to the Marilyn Trips section of the website with some of my favourite photos from the big day. Here is a direct LINK.

Marilyn’s legendary final home is currently up for sale. So if you have an extra $3,595,000 it can be yours.
Here is the official listing. It is interesting to note that they didn’t even make mention of the fact it was Marilyn’s home. Too bad one of these celebrities, with money to burn, who profess to love Marilyn wouldn’t purchase it and make a museum.
I wanted to pass along this information about this year’s memorial service:
The 2010 Marilyn Monroe Memorial Service will begin at 11:00 on Thursday, August 5 at Westwood Memorial Park. A reception following the memorial service is currently being arranged. Information on the reception will be announced soon. Visit http://marilynrememberedclub.blogspot.com for updates.

Please note that 100% of donations will be used to fund memorial service and reception expenses. The Marilyn Remembered fan club is charged a facility usage fee of $500 to hold the service in the chapel at Westwood Memorial Park, the same chapel where Marilyn’s actual funeral services were held.

Everyone donating to the Marilyn Monroe Memorial Fund will be acknowledged in the memorial service program.
