Our Engagement Photos

Wow, time sure does fly!  In just 4 days, on May 16, 2010, my husband and I will be celebrating our ONE YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!  Can you believe it??  I can’t!  In the last year, almost weekly, I’ll say to my husband, “Wait what? Are we really married? I’m a wife?”  And almost daily, I will look at my ring(s) and SMILE because I am reminded that I am married to the best man in the world! 🙂  So… in the next four days leading up to our anniversary, I am going to bombard you with our pictures, engagement pictures, Taiwan engagement pictures, possibly our wedding slideshow if I can figure out how to put up video, and wedding pictures… you are going to be sick of seeing our faces (I’m sure all of my Facebook friends already are haha).

First up for you today, we have our Engagement Pictures that were taken around the University of Michigan campus by our Detroit based photographer, Venture Photography.  Now, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before or not, but I am a University of Michigan alum and my husband is an Ohio State University alum… the worst of all college football rivals!

Twas a chilly February (2009) Saturday afternoon  in Ann Arbor, MI…

But being the brave soul that I am, I decided I wanted to show more skin…

I mean red…

Soon realizing I was totally wearing the wrong color, we had to make things right, with a petty fight!

But of course after every fight, you have to make out up!

And get some bubble tea!

But lastly, we must end each day with togetherness and laughter! 🙂

Stay tuned for our Taiwan Engagement/Wedding photos coming up next…

    Such adorable photos! You are a cute couple. It is funny to think about being a Mrs. I am a teacher and the first few weeks of kids calling me Mrs was really odd after being Miss forever. 🙂 I love that I have that constant reminder though.

    Oh my gosh! I love these! Seriously, I got a little choked up looking at them, probably because our first wedding anniversary is coming up in June, and I feel the SAME way, so lucky to be married to the most amazing man in the world! I had no idea marriage was going to be so great! Congratulations to you both, and keep the pictures coming, we don’t mind them at all! XO!

    reply: yay! i’m so happy that you’re making bows too. we’ll have to do a swap sometime. ;D i’ve found that a glue gun works best for attaching them to clips/headbands (and they have mini ones for less than $5 at the craft stores). hope that helps!


  30. May 13, 2010 / 3:53 pm

    Happy one year soon! That is quite exciting. Gorgeous photos by the way. You look very happy in them
