espresso yourself.

Any of you that have know me for a mere ten minutes, followed my blog, or passed me in the hall + could smell the espresso wafting from my pores.

Ever since our first date, coffee has been a central aspect in our lives. Mine as a barista + connoisseur and Sawyer’s as a caffeine addict. Late night study sessions over a latte. Sunday morning brunch with a cappuccino. Coffee has been a frothing point in our relationship + some of the most deep amazing, incredible conversations have brewed over these steaming cups.

So, naturally, in our wedding planning, we spent many dates brain storming with a cup by our sides. Who ever would have thought that we would incorporate it into our reception? Yeah, yeah, you saw it from a mile away.

I saw this today while browsing the knot.com – my favorite website I saw this… Yup, most definitely need to incorporate this into our centerpieces!!!

Oh, and one of my super sweet bridesmaids – Amy – totally made me cackle with her pitch on favors!

Thoughts?!

baby, tell me, whats your flavor…

Well, its that time folks! The time every engaged couple waits eagerly for – cake tasting! We have gone through hundreds of hundreds of cake photos, and searching vendors, we have been overwhelmed. After much deliberation we have decided that we will be serving cupcakes! Everyone loves a cupcake!

With infinite choices + not wanting to spend the next decade tasting every flavor on the planet – I am turning to you, my friends. Please lend me a hand + slam us with a few cake flavors that you have enjoyed (:

e-photos

We recently got our engagement photos back from our absolutely amazing photographer, Stacy Young. And what can I say, I am head over heels amazed by them. Oh, she did such an incredible job, I can’t even imagine how fabulous the ones from our wedding day will turn out! I had to share these with you! If you ever need a photographer in the Salt Lake area, I completely recommend her, she is a total doll to work with. She has such an amazing talent for posing, angles + engaging the subjects.

Kate and Sawyer: Engagement Session

I had the pleasure of photographing Kate and Sawyer on a beautiful fall day. Blue skies, bright colored leaves, and a warm light from the sun made this an awesome shoot, not to mention Kate and Sawyer are pretty phenomenal themselves.

These two are the sweetest! They have dated for 5 years and got engaged on Christmas day last year. How memorable & special is that? (:

I love how they love each other. It is so apparent in how they talk to one another and treat each other. Their love runs deep and you can see it in their faces.

Can’t wait for their wedding in April!

polka dots + stripes.

I have major bridal obsession going on right now… The other day I was amidst my weekly Target wandering, having no real purpose in a search I delved into the party isles. Boring – next isle. Lame – next isle. OMG. These beaut’s popped right out at me from the clearance rack. Oh, how gorgeous + perfectly matching our shade of green, are you, amazing emerald polka dot napkins… you must come home with me…  my heart stopped short when they only had 5 packages… equaling 100 napkins… A bit short of what we would need for a cocktail hour of 175 guests… boo. double boo. I ran to the register, snarling to protect my loot, determined to find more, I picked up the latest bridal magazine and began the mad dash to every Target in town, to no avail. Maybe we’ll just have to use them for a shower/party instead of the hors d’oeuvres hour…

Saddened, I grabbed an amazing, amazing I tell you – raspberry passion tea lemonade {starbucks}, to lift my spirits + I began flipping through the pages, whilst sipping my tea. And I stumbled upon these uber cool paper straws… And well… I really want, nay, need them! Wouldn’t they be amazing garnishing a Manhattan? Not only are they super chic – they are on esty.com + purchases support indie markets!

The question/poll I pose is…
***Do the stripes + polka dots:

A. Clash
B. Look retro
C. Are uber awesome + Kate needs to get them both?
