Please bear with me….I’ve got lots of photos to share and am going to break ’em up into a 5 parter if that’s cool with you guys 🙂 Wedding Post 1 is dedicated to the morning of the wedding as we were getting ready in different parts of our fair city.
My sister and I spent the night at the Alexis Hotel in downtown Seattle. We had a lovely, spacious suite and my friends Penny and Megan (aka Pegan!) visited that morning for breakfast. Hair and makeup weren’t due to start until 11 a.m. so we had lots of time to kill – almost too much time if you ask me! My parents showed up right as our beauty regimes began and we were dressed and out the door in no time. Adam and his brother, Josh, spent the morning at our hizzle on S. Beacon Hill. I heard it was a very typical morning – they went out for brunch and hit the local gym. I love how our photographer captured these storyboard images of him. Swoon, that beard!
Yeah they do! My sis threw me this amazeballs bridal shower, which was camping themed – duh. Instead of the traditional pots ‘n pans registry, the Mr. and I decided that we’d like to upgrade our camping gear. Over the years, it had grown into a lot of old, hand-me-downs that were looking a bit rough for wear. A goal we have for 2015 is to spend more time in the great outdoors so this worked right along with our plan!
BLs were consumed, s’more dip was spread, beyond generous gifts were opened….overall an amazing time. Many thanks to my sister, Liz, and the rest of the family for throwing us such a fabulous shower. As the recipient of all of this cool swag, I invite you all to camp with us in the next year. We’ll be the fancy campers with all of the cool gear 🙂
I don’t know the time or date of when you were born, nor do I know your birth parents. They said you and your siblings were an accident, an accident that I was happy to take. This year is your ninth year of life – aka 63 in dog years – though you act like you are a spry two year old, which amazes me with all that you’ve been through.
You’re getting a tad bit greyer around the muzzle and are getting very set in your ways, like most older folks do, but I love you none the less. You’ve taught me responsibility, perseverance (especially when it comes to cookies) and that a head scratch is WAY more important that an iphone.
Just thought I would share some of my fav photos from our engagement photo session a few weeks back! We decided to stick with the south end of town and went with industrial hip Georgetown and be one with nature Seward Park.
It’s difficult for us to find a weekend where there’s not a million things going on so we picked a date that we knew might not be good weather wise. The Friday before was gloriously sunny with blue skies and I was hoping that it’d transfer over to Saturday. Um yeah…about that…..Saturday, the skies were grey, rain was off and on and at one point, it snowed! Not ideal for photos, but we were booked and our lovely photographer, Jennifer Hutter was game.
Not gonna lie, taking these were pretty awkward. I don’t think the fiance and I kissed as much as we did in this photo shoot! And every pose felt funny, even though the results were good 🙂 Our fingers turned purple from the cold, the rain seemed to never stop and Miss Stella was not on her best behavior. Overall, not the best conditions but we tried to make the best of it. Enjoy!
