I know I haven’t posted in some time, but a lot has been going on! Including:
We are getting married!
[Back story about the photo - there is a beautiful sculpture garden near us that I had been wanting to go to for a long time. We spent the day walking around the grounds, taking photos of ourselves posing with some of the statues. During one of the self-timed pictures, Dave got down on one knee. This was the result.]
After the initial shock/excitement, I called my mom (and everyone else) and we drove an hour to my grandmother’s house to tell her the news in person. Such a special day – I am truly blessed.
Wedding planning has proven to be fun so far, but it’s definitely its own special brand of stress. (On the one hand, I want to find the perfect place, know that we’re going to have perfect weather, wear the perfect thing, and on the other hand, I know that it’s going to be wonderful no matter what, and I can’t lose sight of what the wedding is actually about – marrying Dave!) (Also, why in the world are things so expensive? Recommendation – if you want to save money, do not get married in the NY/NJ area.)
Right now we are planning on having the wedding July 12th, 2014 at this very beautiful location:
I love the idea of having a more casual outdoor ceremony with a tented reception, and this venue seemed to fit that vision to a T! Now it’s just a matter of praying to the heat/rain gods…
Next step – wedding dress shopping! Stay tuned…
Switching gears, here are some non-wedding related photos I have taken in the last couple months:
Springtime in Princeton

And finally, a beautiful day with a beautiful friend:
Things on the horizon – 25th birthday (next weekend!), trip to London, hopefully some fun photo projects outside now that the weather’s warmer!
