Remembering Marilyn

I hope everyone is sending Marilyn special thoughts and prayers today.  48 years ago we lost her.  Luckily, because of all the wonderful fans in the world, her memory lives on.

Here is a beautiful video that Sergio has created in honour of today.

Our Vegas Wedding Video

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.

Sergio & Marilyn in New York

I wanted to share this video from Sergio. It features photos from his recent trip to New York. He has gone to all of the great Marilyn landmarks and included a reference photo of Marilyn in the same location. Brilliant!

Did you feel the quake?

I was at work in a meeting on the first floor so I didn’t feel today’s earthquake. However, people in the upstairs office said they felt it. How about you? Was anyone working in a tall building when it struck? Please post your experiences in the comments.

Thanks!

Our Vegas Wedding on Marilyn’s Birthday

Finally feel caught up on all the sleep I lost in Vegas.  It truly is a city that never sleeps.  I think they must pump oxygen into the rooms because whenever I went back to the room for a nap I was wide awake in 10 minutes.  It was the trip of a lifetime and everything went off without a hitch so I was thankful for that.  Still waiting for all the professional photos to come back in a few weeks.  In the meantime, here are a few shots.  

Here is my beautiful friend and maid of honour, Suzie Kennedy signing the marriage license.

Here we are before the ceremony walking through the casino.  It was so much fun.

Susan Griffiths was my beautiful bridesmaid. I am just so honoured that she would do this for me.  I can’t wait to get the pro photos from this shot.

We were married at Chapel of the Flowers.  It was a beautiful chapel and I highly recommend it.

Waking Up in Vegas – Wedding Day!

Can’t sleep anymore as today is the big day – no not just Marilyn’s birthday – but the wedding countdown is finally over.  It has been almost a year of planning and I can’t believe it is here.   Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes and no worries I will post photos.

“I Do” in 1 Month

I wanted to apologize for the lack of podcasts and updates to the website. Note: to those who have sent in tattoo photos – I haven’t forgotten about you!

I am occupied these days with Vegas wedding plans as my big day is coming soon. It is a little stressful arranging everything over the internet – so hopefully it all goes well 🙂

Here is a sneak peek at my very special bridesmaids….
