David & Shelly got married on a ship, in the sun, in the ocean, in the middle of nowhere. Lucky ducks! Anyway, they didn’t invite us to the wedding but they invited Storybook to their reception. So Luke and I were happy to take a break from the usual weekend weddings to photograph their party!
This little man has a special place in my heart- maybe because I’m such a fan of his mom & dad, maybe it’s because I prayed for him daily while he was fighting for his life, maybe it’s because both of his grannies are two-collars-popped cool, or maybe it’s all of these put together.
If you’re not already eating here, then I’m offering you an instant bump in your quality of life. So don’t walk, RUN to the Bistro! You’ll find a diverse menu with something to please even the pickiest of eaters. The service is outstanding and the servers are very knowledgeable about the food and wine.
Here you see the well-stocked bar, and this is really just the beginning of their offerings! The wine list is superb and each wine is very carefully considered before being chosen.
Mediterranean Tuna Salad- Um, heck yes. Mixed greens, artichoke hearts, sweet red onions, caper berries, Greek olives, feta, red peppers and ahi tuna.
Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail- Seriously, have you ever had shrimp this big? Featured below with Sokol Blosser Evolution.
Grilled Brie with a balsamic reduction, apples, walnuts, lahvosh crackers and strawberries. Just do it.
Filet Oscar…you already know what this is, in fact you’re probably wiping the drool from the corners of your mouth.
Okay, you didn’t REALLY think that I’d blog just one word did you? When I say “beautiful”, I mean EVERY detail was well-planned and just right. Location: beautiful. Make-up: flawless. Flowers: gorgeous. Dresses: elegant. Tuxes: handsome. Flowergirl & Ringbearer: too cute for words. Food: de-friggin’-licious. DJ: excellent. Cake: amazing. Bride & Groom: totally in love. What more could you want?
Ashlee & Jake are havin’ a baby! Correction: Ashlee & Jake are havin’ another baby! And judging by the looks of number 1, this lil’ bean sprout’s gonna be one good lookin’ baby! to Ashlee & Jake- it was so nice to meet you and I can’t wait to meet your littlest one very soon!
(Technically, I’ve been back for 2 weeks now. But it makes a great [read: cheesy] pun since this cutie’s name is Jett). Jett’s kind of a rockstar around here, and you might remember him or his older rockstar brother from here or here. I can’t believe how big he’s getting!
Oh Jett, you are going to break some hearts someday!
Steven & LaRinda are celebrating their first year of marriage together and they’ve decided that a great way to celebrate each year will be with anniversary pictures. I love that! Just imagine when they’re 75 and they have such a great way to look back over their years together and appreciate each line and wrinkle in the others’ face. I just love it! I’m a sucker for love!
