So….I’m doing something a little different today. It’s almost September which means my 1 year wedding anniversary is around the corner and I’m already celebrating that we made it this far (and much longer than Kim Kardashian’s to that athlete)—and oh, what a year it’s been! Since everyone on IG and my blog has become more like a friend than “random internet stranger,” I wanted to share a bit more of my personal life as well as some of my favorite shots that were taken by the amazing photographer Elyana (and also a friend of mine since middle school!) whose dreamy work can be found here and here. Elyana suggested an engagement shoot by the beach at sunset and as you can see from the shots below, she totally nailed it. I’m tempted to get married again just to have her photograph it.
The shoot was such a fun experience for everyone involved and even better, I have these stunning photos as a reminder of the day. I love how the milk maid style braids and the golden embroidery details translated in these images! Super luxe, right? Now, without further ado….
I met Corey at a party at his house—his roommate was dating my high school friend and the two of them were on a secret mission to set us up. While our first conversation wasn’t exactly thrilling (according to him, he was super nervous), we eventually crossed paths later that night and ended up chatting for hours. Since then, we haven’t spent more than a week without seeing other. And, obviously now that we’re married, we get to hangout all the time.
