Getting closer....

Hello everyone,

Wow, we are getting very close to the BIG DAY! I have to say that I am very excited about the wedding. All of the little finishing details are coming together and the final touches are being made. Although there have been some disappointments (people who can't make it for various reasons) I know that we are all going to have an awesome time. Jason and I are just about to move into a new place in Rohnert Park (a little 2bd 1.5 ba condo) that we are both very excited about. I am finally done with school and have officially started my summer vacation! We look forward to seeing everyone very soon. Don't forget to reserve your rooms and check out our registries! 

Love ya

On Month away!

we are officially one month and counting people! I am very excited! So quick update here. Life-wise things are really good. I just finished my credential program, am almost done with student teaching, and we are looking for a new place. Jason got a new job in petaluma so we are currently looking for a new place there. Our bachelor/bachelorette parties were great! we had a lot of fun (some more than others I think)! We are really looking forward to seeing everyone at the wedding.

So if I am not mistaken the invitations should go out this week. Any issues with addresses or whatnot will be handled by Mom (Tracy)

See you all soon!

Bridal Shower

So my bridal shower is this weekend in San Jose. I just wanted to take a minute here to thank Lauren, Mom and Jean for working so hard on the party. A special thanks to Jean for letting us use her house for the festivities. Mom has been super on top of everything throughout this whole time and I really appreciate her input, especially since I don't know anything about anything when it comes to wedding planning. Also thanks to Lauren for stepping up and being a great maid-of-honor and coming through on some of the special surprises we have in store for the shower.

Thank you to all you lovely ladies for helping make this whole thing awesome and special.

Love you!

Hotel Reservations Redux

Ok so it sounds like everything is all settled with Stacy at the Hilton Garden Inn in Gilroy. You are now able to reserve rooms at a group rate there for the wedding. Please see the post below for all the relevant information. Remember you have to call the front desk directly (you won't be able to get the group rate via the internet) and you have to ask for the Martinez-Wiedlin Wedding Block. If you have any questions or issues contact me or my mom. Keep checking back for updates as the BIG DAY draws near. Check out the links on the right side of the blog for other useful websites as well!

See you all very soon!

Music makes the world go round

So we finally booked a DJ this weekend. His name is Norman Anub. He is a San Jose native (went to Overfelt high school as a kid) and came very highly recommended by Debbie Sanchez, our coordinator at Fortino. He seems very nice, organized, and thorough. He had a big questionnaire that asked us all sorts of questions like Where did we meet? How did Jason propose? What were things we liked and didn't like about DJ's we had seen at weddings and other functions? He was very intereted in the kind of mood we wanted to create. He also said that it is important for him to know all this so that he could determine whether it was a good fit between us. Overall, I was very impressed and it gave me a whole new wave of exitement about the whole thing! Check out Norman at his website and tell me he doesn't seem awesome!

More to come so visit often.

Hi everyone. I guess there has been some confusion regarding the hotel reservations. I think it was my fault. I jumped the gun a little by posting the information about the group rate before my mom had finished filling out paperwork and negotiating with them. As a result, people have been trying to reserve rooms but not getting the discount. Please bear with me while I sort this out. Check back in about a week for more information. Hopefully, everything will be up and running by then!

Love ya!

Hotel Reservations

Hi everyone. I have some really important information about reserving rooms for the wedding. We have made arrangements with the Hilton Garden Inn Gilroy for a group rate on single and double occupancy rooms. The group rate is $119 per night (plus any applicable taxes). Guest must call the front desk at (408) 840-7000 and ask for the Martinez-Wiedlin Wedding Block. There are currently 7 single occupancy rooms and 8 double occupancy rooms available. If those rooms get booked they will release more as needed. Rooms need to be reserved by June 1, 2009, otherwise they will be released. Please visit the Hilton's website for more information about the hotel and their amenities. Other hotels are available in the area as well if you would like to book elsewhere. However, group rates have not been arranged with any other hotel. Don't delay! Make your reservations ASAP!!

Update 2/16/09

So a quick update. After a very lovely and productive Valentine's Day weekend, I have now ordered shower invites and created rough drafts of the actual wedding invites. Mom and I also negotiated some group rates for the Hilton in Gilroy. I will have more information about that when we get everything settled. Keep checking back for updates as things start moving closer to the BIG DAY!!
