This past week I got to go to a veterinary conference for work to take some photos for our upcoming website. I have never been to a veterinary conference before so it was really interesting! One thing I have learned from my work is just how extremely different the veterinary world is to the creative arts world! Completely different way of thinking!
My husband, Nathon, and I went on our honeymoon bright and early the morning after the wedding, to Mexico! We got to the room (which I should mention was a GORGEOUS SUITE!!) the night of the wedding at 10pm something, and our wakeup call was at 3:30am! Our flight to LA was at 8am, so we were VERY tired! I believe we both slept on the first flight, but woke up to eat breakfast of course ;)
I am SO excited to share with you 15 photos from the wedding day! These photos feature our wedding party, family, ceremony, reception and more! To take a look at all of our top favorite images from our INCREDIBLE photographer Spencer Combs, take a look at my Facebook page! (They will be uploaded and live on Saturday March 16th, 2013) And to learn more about our photographer, check out this blog post. Also- HUGE thank you and shout out to Emily Deszell for doing my hair and Kristi Warner for doing my makeup! If you live in the Seattle area, you should definitely go see them!
Hope you enjoy the photos!
So when it came to finding the perfect bridesmaid gift, I didn’t want it to be something used solely for the wedding or something they wouldn’t appreciate. Often times bridesmaids get gifts where it’s just something to wear for that day, which is fine, but what if they would never wear or use it again? I didn’t want that. I wanted something that would be meaningful in a different way…so, this is what I got them!
This year’s Oscars ceased to “WOW” me. There really wasn’t any one gown that left my jaw on the floor, which was rather disappointing! That’s not to say that there weren’t beautiful dresses and tuxedos, but just that I wasn’t in awe! I really was expecting to be! However, I do have a couple favorites.
So one of the things we decided upon VERY soon after getting engaged, (we’re talking within the first 3 weeks,) was who our photographer would be. My husband, Nathon, and I are both artistic and have a deep love for photography so it was extremely important to us that we LOVE our photographer. We had about 5 in mind that I follow on a daily basis, and we sat down to go over their portfolio’s with a fine-toothed comb, make notes about what we were drawn to, and finally take notice of the cost. It certainly didn’t take long for us to whole-heartedly agree, hands-down, on Spencer Combs.
Months of prep went into planning the wedding of our dreams! Besides picking our amazing venue and photographer, there were a bunch of little things that had to get done. I made drink tokens, invitations, table numbers and more!
So, I have been pretty MIA from the blog for a good while now. Sorry for those of you who are regulars….which I feel like I might be hearing crickets out there? ;) haha Anyway, it has been a bit crazy busy lately with the wedding coming up in…..wait for it….. 8 days! And prepping at work for being gone for a couple weeks. Not to mention all of the holidays in between! Needless to say, I have been busy! But, I thought I would take a few moments to update you all on how I am feeling one week out from saying, “I DO.”
So, as some of you may know, I am engaged to the most amazing guy ever! Nathon :) He proposed last fall on my birthday with a candlelight home made romantic dinner of the most incredible chicken cordon blu and garlic mashed potatoes! Seriously, AMAZING. We are getting married January 12th this winter in downtown Seattle.
This past weekend I had the incredible opportunity to work at the annual Vancouver Art Gallery gala, Art Auction 2012. I love working events, and this was an absolute blast! I got to experience a huge, high-profile event first hand in a different country, and witness all aspects of it the day-of. The above image was taken by Melissa Baker of Bake Photography during the live auction that took place in the art gallery.
