Best Day Ever: Wedding Photos

Well, they are here! And I CANNOT wait to share them with you. Everyone says it, and it sounds so very cliché, but it’s true…our wedding day was the best day ever. To stand there, with the love of my life, committing my life to him in front of God and all of our friends and family has to have been the most incredible, out-of-body but totally present experience I’ve ever had. It was such a beautiful day.

We were enveloped by the love and support of our friends and family. And we had such an incredible team who helped us make the day even more special. A list of our very special vendors can be found at the bottom of the post, but a special shout out to Kimberly Rhodes and her team with Hitched Events for being that absolute best wedding planner EVER. Without her I wouldn’t have been able to assemble the best team ever. I will be forever grateful for her work and friendship. Thanks also to Eddie with Jenny Martell Photography for capturing our big day in such a beautiful, artistic way. Wow. We are blessed beyond measure.

Forgive me for not being able to edit the photos down further…they are all so special…I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Thanks to everyone who was a part of our big day! For more pictures, check out my Facebook page!

Engagement Session Snaps


I have to apologize for the incredibly self indulgent post that follows but I just had to share the amazing engagement photos we just got in. It was a sweltering hot day, the only one in a long stretch of cool days, and somehow our photographers will still able to make us look like we weren’t totally sweat-drenched and wilted. We have the great pleasure of having the brilliant Jenny and Eddie of Jenny Martell Photography as part of our dynamo wedding team and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to have them capture our wedding after seeing what they put together from our engagement session. Jenny and Eddie put together the concept for the shoot based on a few questions we answered for them and knocked it out of the park. Excuse us while we do our best Johnny and June Cash impersonations. *wink, wink*

It is always so hard to edit photo selections down, but here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Ringing in the New Year

After a nice little break to celebrate Christmas and the New Year, I am so excited to be back blogging and planning what promises to be the best year yet. And perhaps that’s because 2012 went out with such a bang! Most of you probably know by now, but it wouldn’t seem official if I didn’t announce it here–Bear finally popped the question! We’re engaged!!

We're Engaged!

My sweet fiancée, offering me the “final rose” (yes we are secret Bachelor watchers…don’t tell anyone).

The proposal

Needless to say, I can’t imagine a more spectacular year than the one that lies ahead of me, brimming with promise.  And as if marrying the love of my life wasn’t enough, I turn the big 3-0 and have a trip back to Hawaii on the books for this summer. Seriously, could it get any better? (I hope I don’t come off braggy…at least not too braggy *wink*) I certainly don’t deserve all the good things coming my way so all I can do is thank the good Lord above for the blessings he has bestowed on me.

Fasten your seat belts and let’s go for a ride! Bring on 2013!
