Grand Canyon – Part 1

I have so many pictures from Grand Canyon that I’ll just have to post them in a few different parts. This might have been the best day of our honeymoon, it was so amazing to get to see it. And I know that the pictures simply don’t give it justice, but if you’re ever in the area you just have to go see it. I’m already imagining going back. And this time I would want to stay for longer, instead of just a few hours.

This was our very first view of the canyon. We practically ran over to the view point to get a better view.

It was very misty to start out with, but it cleared up nicely in just 10-15 minutes.

There were a few different view points at different spots by the canyon, and these were all crowded with people. But when me and Andy walked along the edge (for about two hours) it was mostly empty, and we got to take pictures and admire the view by ourselves – which was nice. I don’t think I’ve ever been that amazed before. Pictures just don’t capture it.

The view points all had railings – because it was extremely far down – but everywhere else you were on your own and just had to be careful. I thought it was awesome, everything was so untouched.


The Hoover Dam

I’ve completely forgotten that I was going to post some pictures from our honeymoon (link to the description of where we went) – even though it’s quite a while ago by now. So I might as well start with the very best day of our entire 19-day trip! Our trip to Grand Canyon! It’ll be divided into several posts.

On our very first day in Vegas (on a Monday after 4 days in Los Angeles), we took a bus tour out to see the Grand Canyon! It’s a full day tour – we got picked up at 6 in the morning and got dropped off back at our hotel at 9:30 at night. Needless to say we were pretty exhausted by then, but it was definitely worth it. We started out with a quick stop to get our tickets and change buses, before heading off to the Hoover dam. We got to spend some time there, taking pictures, before we drove the rest of the way to the Grand Canyon (with a lunch stop at McDonald’s).

Can you see the white line at the very right of the picture (in the middle)? That’s where the water line used to be; it was a lot lower at the time.

The dam is extremely big!

It’s was really bright and windy, so it was kind of hard to get any good pictures.

Honeymoon Outfits

So I was looking through my honeymoon pictures – yet again – and ended up putting together these collages of outfits from our trip. I know most of these outfits are fairly plain, but we were doing so much traveling and sightseeing that we didn’t always have time to dress up (I don’t think I’ve ever walked that much in my life!). Then there was the issue of packing 19 days worth of clothing for two people into one suitcase – we didn’t exactly have unlimited space. I still can’t believe we didn’t have to pay for overweight when we came home from New York.

Anyway, here are a few collages with outfits and what not from our trip. Let me know what you think!

Our Honeymoon Suite

On Saturday night after the reception we checked into our honeymoon suite and stayed there until Tuesday morning. It was amazing to just get to relax for a few days after the last hectic weeks. Even though I enjoyed planning our wedding, it some times drove me crazy, and it definitely stressed me out. But it was nothing that our hottub (which happend to be in the middle of our bedroom) couldn’t fix. By Tuesday I was very sad to leave, but our honeymoon was coming up only 9 days later, so I had something to look forward to.

Here are a few pictures of our suite:

Me and my gorgeous bouquet – one of the few times you’ll see me without makeup, hehe.

I loved having all the flowers from our wedding all over our suite. So pretty.

Our Honeymoon

I was just looking through the pictures from our honeymoon and I can’t wait to share them with you guys! As soon as I get closer to being done with posting pictures from the wedding I will start with these. But, first things first, I just wanted to post a short summary of what we actually did on our honeymoon. We had an absolutely wonderful time and I still can’t believe that it’s actually over.

Here’s a short summary:

Our most amazing experience was, without a doubt, our trip to Grand Canyon. The view was breathtaking and I didn’t want to leave when it was time to go. It was just so unbelievably stunning! I am already planning on going back there – hopefully soon.
