Okay so here’s a note from my personal life: My bestest friend in the whole world, my “bestie”, my BFF, my…whatever you wanna call it…is moving away. And we’re not talking about moving to Dallas or or Denver, both cities very “doable” for a few days. Oh no, THAT would be too simple, too easy to comprehend. Instead, they are moving to Farmington, New Mexico, not nearly as doable. Luckily, this is my busy season, so I’ve barely had the time to process this personal tragedy. So if you all can just keep me this busy for the next 6 months (which I’m thinking would give me the time to find a “new normal”), that would be perfect.
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!
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?
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!
In one phrase, this wedding was…hmmm….I’ve got it: Mumford-&-Sons-Mountain-Jamboree. This wedding was completely beyond beautiful, I don’t even have the words to tell you about it. And there are so many beautiful things to document, I couldn’t possibly show them all here, so you’ll just have to check the client proofing portion of the website once they’re up so you can see them all.
