2 days and counting

I know I haven't shown ANY updates of my upcoming nupitals so I will make it up to you by giving everyone recaps of EVERYTHING when this is all over. Since my engagement was pretty short (6 months) I've been juggling with a lot of things so please be patient and I will show you plenty of good stuff. Can't wait!

In two days I will be a Mrs. So happy that our engagement has been so smooth and we've been blessed to have so much support during this time! Very exciting!!

Out of the closet..a preview

So it's taking me awhile to get back to blogging mode. I've been busy for the past month or so but now it's starting to wind down. Have I ever told you that throughout this 6 month engagement I have not been stressed once?!?! I am blessed. You see, I am the type to panic and get stressed over the littlest things but I've been on cruise control throughout this entire process. I plan to keep it this way until the very end. Sure, I've had minor moments but all in all it's been extremely easy and fun to plan the wedding. It might be due to the fact that I am super organized and pretty much had all the creative juices flowing before I even got engaged. I was meant to plan and organize weddings. =P

Well, this post is long overdue and I apologize for scaring everyone away but I hope I can make it up to you by giving everyone a glimpse of our engagement session. Here's a little background process of what I did in order to find our photographer. I literally contacted every single photographer in Southern California and I narrowed it down to priorities that must be met. I needed the photographer to have a certain type of style I was looking for, had great post processing skills, and the most obvious was it must be within my budget. After many weeks of searching, we finally met Vince. Vince and Carla are a husband and wife team who have a great passion for photography and just great photos to back them up. I will in the near future have a little Q&A session with Vince so that other brides can get an idea of what they should look for in a photographer and how to pick one for their wedding day.

Without further ado, I give you my engagement photos. I am coming out of the closet and I guess so is my fiance, by default. Enjoy!

I love this shot of us sharing a milkshake. When I shared this photo with a friend, she reminded me of the day she first saw us as a couple and in a sense, "caught" us in the act of dating. Side note, we were keeping it hush, hush for a few weeks in order to see if it was going to work out and she crept up on us as we were sharing ice cream at Costco. Ha! I also love this shot because of our silhouette. Later, I will share our invitations that reflect a constant theme for the wedding. I love silhouettes!

The tree we were under was so beautiful and lush. I realize that the photos are coming out small. So until I figure out how to enlarge my photos, please visit their blog and site to view more of Vince and Carla's work.

More updates on DIY projects I've been working on to come.
