wedding // engagement dreams.

all of my dreams came true when I met [J]. and then again, when I met steph + dado, the two lovely people that make up 5th photography. they helped [J] + I turn our crazy engagement shoot vision into a reality. but not only that, they made it perfect. what I saw in my mind was nowhere near how beautiful it actually was when it came together. [minus the swarms of mosquitoes ..those weren’t in my dreams].

now go see the rest of them .. 5th photography // chelsea + jeff.

happy wednesday.

wedding // just around the corner.

without any notice, wedding planning went from a daunting task to a fun, whirlwind of pretty details. we’ve entered into the phase where I pick my bridesmaids’ jewelry and my soon-to-be husband’s socks. our signature cocktail, and what music will be playing before I walk down the beach aisle to my groom. basically I’m finally loving it. we’re done with the logistics ..and are onto making it “us”.

on july 21st, [J] + I hit a relationship milestone: one year engaged. and yet to take engagement photos. 

but this weekend that will change.

here’s a sneak peek of what [J] made for our engagement session ..ahhhh.

I cannot wait to see the magic our photographers [steph + dado] create. and cannot wait to share.

can you guess what is up our sleeve?

happy friday.

have the best weekend. see ya monday!

the week in photos.

the first week of december is crazily behind us. which means, less than 20 days until christmas. ahhh! besides the below zero temperatures outside, I love this month. so much holiday cheer happiness. the only downside, shopping days are numbered. I need to get it done.

so far so great on the #LLinaBCHolidayChallenge. the house is decorated, the tree is up, and tonight we’re watching “elf”.

we received this ornament at our engagement party. and love it so much, because this was quite literally the scene after [J] proposed. very happy campers. what a thoughtful gift.

on tuesday our #LLinaBCHolidayChallege was to make a big pot of chili. which [J] made himself and even took a picture for me to put on the blog. proud blogger fiance :)

I won this pretty pair of chloe + isabel pearl & crystal earrings. I love days when the mailbox holds goodies like this.

I fell for this rustic star stocking holder from crate & barrel. but [J] said “don’t buy it!!! I’ll make it”. and this is his finished product. I love it! I think it’s so much better. it’s us. and very rustic.

don’t forget it’s not too late to jump on board with the holiday challenge. just snap a photo & share with #LLinaBCHolidayChallenge on twitter or instagram.

happy friday.

have the best weekend.
