Engagement Photos!



Spring is finally here in Minnesota and I couldn't be happier! Meenal over at Maison Marigold had a wonderful collection of colorful images as an ode to spring that definitely got me in the mood! This outdoor space from Domino was my favorite. What a perfect place to chill!

On to engagement photos! We have a few hundred super cute pics to our name now and narrowing it down to a handful to share with you guys was hard! I have to admit that we were pretty nervous about taking them. Both Chris and I enjoy photography as a hobby, but being on the other side of the camera was not something we were looking forward to. However our amazing and uber-talented photographer Spencer Combs made us feel so comfortable and really captured our personalities. This is genuine happiness you see below people! As if it was even possible, after getting our pics back I was even MORE excited for our big day! Which happens to be ONE WEEK from today!









Happy weekend everyone!! :)

If you only could see my face right now, Erin...

I'm smiling and feeling so happy for you both! It's so "weird" that I don't know you but I have this warm feeling about you, I guess it's because I truly care about you and seeing these pictures made me feel happy to see you so happy.

You guys look great together. What a beautiful couple. But you are much more than that.... I can feel how much you guys love each other and how much you're enjoying this moment. That's simply great, Erin.

I wish you all the Blessings God can give to you both.

Love, happiness, and pure joy are what I see when I look at these pictures! I hope your special day is one you will always treasure, and I'll give you the advice my maid of honor (who was married just 3 weeks before me) gave me almost 25 years ago. She told me to just stop sometime during the day and really take it all in!

Cynthia Banks said...

Wonderful pics! Congratulations! I love the pop of turquoise in the photographs:). As a woman who just lost the love of her life after 27 years together, I can give you 3 things that I lived that helped to make my marriage so special for so long: 1. Never go to bed angry; 2. Choose your battles and let the rest go; and 3. Never go a day without saying "I love you". Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your life together. My best, Cynthia http://aloveofthepast-cynthia.blogspot.com
