Sean and I met up with the sweet little Perez family to hang out and snap some pictures of Miguel. This quiet little man is almost one year old, and oh so adorable - so of course it was time for some pictures to capture this super fun time in the family's life.
Felipe & Ashley : thanks so much for coming out to hang out with us for a bit, we had a great time and hope Miguel has a perfect birthday party! :)
Can I just start by saying that I LOVE my family? I really do.
Sean and I just adore our cousin Heather and her hubby Willy, but as much as we try, we never get to spend that much time together. I mean, we see each other – but not as much as we all would like (since they are a couple hour drive from us in San Diego, and we all have pretty crazy schedules). But when we do hang out, I have the most amazing time!
Heather and Willy came up for the weekend to celebrate their 1 year anniversary (yay!!!). Heather asked us to come hang out with them in Santa Monica for the day. Of course we thought that we would be intruding on their anniversary trip, but like I said…..we love each other and spending time together – and they wanted us to come any way. So we were pretty stoked! ;)
So we walked the promenade and the pier. Played games, went on the farris wheel, took some awesome photo booth pictures, ate funnel cakes, and had some champagne to toast to their anniversary! It was just as fun and perfect as it sounds.
Here are a few pictures from mine and Heather's point and shoots:
Bubba Gumps for dinner and drinks....yum!!
(It was a littttle windy)
Winning toys for our pups (thats what you do pre-children)
Sooo this last one was the last picture that our point and shoot camera took before breaking....it took a really long time to actually take the picture (if you cant tell by Sean's expression). But I love it any way ;)
Ilene went to high school with Sean.But they did not just go to school together, but were in just about every single class together (since they were both in the teaching program together).
So its easy to say that it was pretty cool for them to see each other after being out of HS for a while! (and even though I did not have any classes with Ilene , I still was super stoked to hang out with her!) ;)
Chris and Ilene have some serious chemistry,and are a super sweet couple to boot! We had such a blast taking pictures and hanging out with them. But, I'm not gunna lie....we are just a little bummed that we can't look forward to shooting their wedding, but we know it will be a PERFECT day!!! :)
We had such a great time getting to know them during their fun engagement session. Then at the wedding we felt so completely welcome, and had such a blast!
The whole day was so fun and so full of excitement. Between the signing of the Ketubah , their fun family and friends, getting to hang out with some of my old family friends (small world!) , all the fun Jewish traditions , and of course Carrie and Bradley’s love for each other, and well….for us! :) – We just had the best time!
The next two are pretty similar, butI love them both equally! :) Which one is your fave?
Can't you just feel the love?!
Sean snuck this right before they were announced in to the reception ... I love it!
Just a quick comment about our guest books – I would highly suggest to my future brides to book a package that includes a photo guest book, or add it on to your package. I think it really adds a lot of personality, and we get great reviews on these bad boys! Carrie and Bradley ended up ordering 2 extra copies to give to their parents as gifts, and we were so excited about their guests complements on the their engagement portraits, and the book. Besides, you might as well put those engagement portraits to good use, right!? ;)
Carrie and Bradley – Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your big day. We feel so thankful to have such welcoming sweet people in our lives! :)
Hope you guys have a blast in Mexico!
Oh and a HUGE thank you goes out to Ed for sending this awesome couple to us! You are so great for helping spread the word about us, and it was so great to see you! :)
