Its October!!! That’s awesome. I am so excited about fall and all that goes with it. I dont care how #basic that is.
Last month was nuts, if you’re asking me to sum it up in a nutshell. (haha) We were out of town 3 of the 4 weeks of September. We spend 2 weeks at our trailer by the sea in NC and then we spent a week in San Diego. We traveled so much that being home was a luxury that we relished in. Isn’t is funny how that flip flops. I guess you always want what you dont have in the moment. I say we should flip flop THAT!
A few details of the past month and what we are looking forward to this month:
- This month we are photographing 5 weddings and its going to be cray-cray.
- Dan and I both got fitbit’s and are looking forward to seeing how we can beat the calories in vs calories out. Can I tell you how lame it is to spend the day at the computer and realize how few steps you took that day. Not cool. Here’s to a 2 month jump on all the “lose weight” New Year’s Resolutions.
- Im feeling like our blog has been full of only pictures and not full of my heart. Im a little torn between revving up my personal blog again and just blogging here. What do you guys think? Should this all just be wedding photography related and put more personal posts elsewhere?? So torn.
- San Diego rules. Put it on your “to-visit” list. I was a huge fan. We were there to photograph an event where Jewel was performing. My eighth grade self was freaking out a little bit.
- I turn 31 in 31 days.
It had been over a year since we had seen these two at¬†their Ogunquit Maine engagement session. They live in Colorado and planned this wedding as a destination for family, friends, and honored guests. It was a vintage camp theme, held at not one, but two camps: Camp Eastwood and Camp Manitou. In my humble opinion, they nailed the theme, complete with lanterns instead of bouquets and groomsmen pocket watches! The girls got ready in the camp dance studio and the guys in a cabin nearby. When they had their first look in the soccer field, Rhett was tearing up even before he was his beautiful bride. It was so sweet to witness.
For the ceremony, the guys rode a boat across the lake to the other camp, arriving to the “Flight of the Valkyries,” a very nice touch. Kristen walked down the aisle to the same song I did in my wedding, “Come thou Fount of Every Blessing,” so I was crying along with everyone else. Sounds hard to top eh? Well they topped it when they walked back down the aisle to a shower of Marshmallows (!) in place of flower petals. I told you they nailed the camp theme! The reception was held in the dining hall of the camp, with BBQ catered and an ice cream truck serving up homemade ice cream instead of the traditional cake. One of my personal favorite part of the evening was when a group of family and friends gathered around the couple (who met in Chorus by the way), and sang a song to them. It was an adorable wedding that we loved being a part of!
