Nine weeks.  The countdown is at nine weeks, that is 63 days until our wedding!  Before the proposal, I remember chatting with my friend Jamie over tea about when we’d like to get married.  Neither of us engaged, just talking and dreaming.  I said Fall, she said Spring because really, what wedding photographer wants to be planning her wedding during WEDDING SEASON?  haha and now I laugh because I’m that girl!  But, like she reminded me just recently, very matter of factly, anything else just wouldn’t have fit with our dating timeline.  I am beyond excited to be marrying Shane in 63 days.  Bring on the craziness right now if it means I get to become his wife that much sooner (he’s so going to remind me of that the next time I have a stress meltdown…)

Along with the ride of an engagement we’ve been on have come some really cool opportunities.  We’ve been so blessed by so much support and we keep reminding ourselves that none of this is our doing, but God’s.  It’s his design so we can only be thankful for all that he has brought into our lives.  Like all the blog features!  It’s unbelievable how our proposal story has spread, and the following few features are just a few.  A few of the many for which we’re so humbled by…

We went international!  The above wedding inspiration blog (featuring some really lovely stuff!) is from Germany, while this one is in Austria.

We were on the radio. I haven’t actually heard us and I really don’t think I want to :) But then it was on their website as well!

This one is fun – this team of girls, “The Yes Girls”, help men plan creative proposals.  And when they saw Shane’s they asked for an interview :)

And Weddings In BC!  A local favourite :)

Happy weekend everyone!  Any fun plans, any weddings?  Tomorrow marks our one year dating anniversary.  One year since that first Starbucks date!  Crazy how much can happen in a year :)  I’m sure there will be more to come on that later…
