Lindsey & Josh Anniversary Shoot

I'd like to introduce you to Lindsey and Josh, a wonderful, intelligent and beautiful couple that recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary!

To help capture the milestone they hired Gina Meola Photography, as well as AVE Styles to help make them look their best.

Lindsey has a very eclectic, earthy style and Josh enjoys clean and simple. So, to please them both, I created two different ensembles for each of them that portrayed both of their tastes.

The photo shoot took place at the Montelucia Restort where they enjoyed a weekend "staycation." Both sets of outfits suited the hotel - one embodied the southwestern color palette of the surrounding mountains and the other the elegance of the architecture.

Congratulations Lindsey and Josh! Cheers to many more years of love!

This post isn't a tribute to 70's fashion. Although, my parents look very "groovy."  This is a post in honor of my parents' 37th wedding anniversary! 37 years, guys!!! Soooo awesome!!! I'm so thankful for their commitment to each other and for setting an example for me and Ryan. They met while going to the University of New Hampshire. My dad was a football player and my mom was in the sorority Alpha Chi Omega. They were set up on a blind date by their two best friends, and hit it off from the start. Apparently, hockey games are great for first dates. ;)

Through the years they have traveled the world and moved all over the United States. They are truly best friends and have been since the beginning.

Love you, Mom and Dad!

Two Years of Bliss

wedding1Well, today is my 2 year wedding anniversary! YAY! I can't believe I said "I do" two years ago! It sure has been a great adventure. I'm so thankful to have the awesome support of our friends, family and church. Thank you to everyone for the prayers over the years. We've come across many skeptics on our path. So many people out there don't support the institution of marriage anymore or they thought we were too young.  Well, today is proof of one of the best decisions we've ever made!

Also, this past weekend was Ryan's graduation. Check out the video Yasmine took of his name being called...So proud!
