I am seriously lusting after the most recent post on photographer, Stephanie Williams‘ blog. She recently shot a wedding in Hawaii, and the couple opted to do a day after shoot – complete with gorgeous views of the North Shore.
Mostly, I’m in love with all of the sunflower shots from this shoot. The lighting in these images is just soft and warm and romantic.

The Pilot (Fiance – he requested I give him a better nickname than “FI”) and I are off to the wedding of his cousin Shannon.
They originally planned to get married two weeks after us, but Jeff ships out for basic training in January, so they had to rearrange their schedules. I’m amazed at how quickly they have managed to get everything sorted out, including booking the church, reception hall and Shannon finding a dress!
I will actually be a photographer for their wedding, so I am thoroughly looking forward to being a part of their special day.
Congrats to you both, Jeff and Shannon! Wishing you lots of love and laughter in the years to come!
…for the next few days. Enjoy the holiday weekend!
This may be non-wedding related, but I’ll be spending my next few days in this beautiful place.

(And, no, I did not photoshop this photo in any way. The sunset that day really WAS that gorgeous.)
Who is going on a much needed vacation (well, sort of)? This girl.
Wedding planning will resume on Monday!
Have a good weekend all!

So the blog has taken a backseat to life…what’s new?
I recently spent a wonderful weekend with three of my favorite people in Keystone, CO. It was meant to be a break from life, a peek into the future and just a time to enjoy with old friends. It ended up being that and so much more.
It is amazing how in a matter of three days your life can completely change. Luckily for me, it was a good change. On February 15th, around 4:15 p.m. MT, on top of the main peak in Keystone at the beginning of the Frenchman run, B asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I of course said “Yes!”
It was a moment to remember (and one I will, of course, always remember). The sun was setting, the view was perfect, the company was perfect and I was sitting next to my best friend in a State that we so dearly love. I could not imagine a better way to start a new chapter in our lives.
I just cannot wait to begin the wedding plans, but most of all, I cannot wait for this to come full circle, beginning with a marriage proposal and ending with a move to a new city (Denver).
I leave for Colorado in less than two weeks. I am really excited first off, because it is Colorado and I love that state more than anything. Secondly, I get to see two of my favorite people in the world and one of my best friends.
I really thing this vacation is going to be the beginning of something wonderful. For several months now, B and I have been looking for jobs and apartments in Denver and I really feel this can get the ball rolling for us. We have talked about moving for over a year (not kidding) and I think this visit is going to be a catalyst among other things.
We will also get the chance to ski/snowboard, which I honestly have not done since high school. My board is still in such great shape because I haven’t gotten the use out of it that I could have. I am going to come back so sore. I am just hoping I do not get hurt so I can still run the St. Louis Half-Marathon in April. Fingers crossed.
I wish we were going to have a little more time in Denver to look around, get some ideas, but mostly this trip is going to be good for the both of us. A change of scenery and considering we haven’t had a vacation together in quite some time, a good fire starter, I guess you could say. This month we are celebrating two years of being together (where did they go?). So, Colorado, friends and us will make for a fantastic time and memory.
