Yearly family photos. Why is it so difficult to get my husband to agree to this. I have tried telling him that 1 hr out, once a year isn't asking for much. Luckily once the photo shoots usually begin he starts cooperating. These are some of the photos we got taken this year.
It was also our 2 year anniversary photoshoot!!
Thanks so much April from @newelementsfilm, She is the best and always makes my husband feel more comfortable during the shoots.
Our female dentist Dr Jenkins got married about a month ago and I finally talking about it on the blog. It was honestly the perfect wedding with the perfect setting. When we got there we took the gondola up to the top where the actual ceremony was being held.
Afterwards everyone but the wedding party headed down to be greeted with the cutest bags full of trail mix and were escorted to the lodge where we were greeted with hors d'oeuvres & cocktail hour. The bruschetta was amazing.
After the bridal party headed down they escorted us into the dinner room to get seated. The meal was outstanding. I ordered the prime rib and it didn't disappoint, the portion was massive with a seasonal vegetable and mashed potatoes. We started off with a strawberry & spinach salad with .
Afterwards they cut the cake and passed it around to all the guests that wanted a piece. While dinner was going on they had the toasts and you were able to sneak out the main lobby and hop into the photo booth. I think I might have popped in there too many times. The attendant knew me by name, hehe.
Since it was such a long drive home in a canyon I was lame and headed out by 9:30 and missed most of the dancing and the sparkler getaway. But all together this wedding was a success.
Oh P.S. here is a sneak preview video of the wedding. If you need a videographer contact New Element Films. They do an amazing job.
I fell in love with this dress when I saw it. The color, the cut, the back of the dress, the only problem was it was petite. I bought it anyways and have yet taken it to the tailors to get altered. But I couldn't pass it up wearing it to afternoon tea. As I mentioned last week, we attended afternoon tea with all the girls in the family that were in town. (High Heels and Tutus) will be joining us hopefully in the future. But after our tea we walked around The Grand America's garden which is lovely. I had my little niece snap of photos of my outfit to showcase this gorgeous dress.
My brother & his family are moving this summer so we thought "what a fun reason to get the girls together and have one last adventure." I thought it would be fun to go to The Grand America and get afternoon tea. It actually turned out to be a lot more fun then everyone thought it would be. If anything it is always fun to have an excuse to dress up, eat small food & treats, and drink tea.
