A Botany Bay Engagement

Kelsey + Lance

I loved meeting Kelsey and Lance out at Botany Bay for their engagement session! It was the first time I’d ever been there, and it did NOT disappoint. The road leading up to the beach is a beautiful tree lined dirt road, and the beach is full of driftwood. While we were walking around, I asked about their proposal story. It was epic! They were hiking Machu Picchu, and Lance carried the ring all the way up. I was freaking out for him hearing the story! I can’t imagine going through the airport with a ring, let alone carrying it your whole trip and up a mountain! Lance said he was pretty nervous about it to :) My favorite part is that their guide filmed the proposal for them on his phone. I’m sure that’s a video they will cherish for forever! Kelsey and Lance, I can’t wait for your wedding this October!

A Lowndes Grove Wedding

Kierstin + James

Was this day hot or is it just this gorgeous couple?! Well, maybe it was a little bit of both. I walked in to the whole wedding party getting preventative IV’s (smartest idea ever!) and we spent the rest of the afternoon running from the 103 degree day outside to the cool AC inside the house. We were all thankful for the ocean breeze!

Thankfully, Kierstin and James are the sweetest couple ever, and I loved watching them get married underneath the shade of the oak trees at Lowndes Grove. They’re both such easy people to be around, and I loved getting to know little parts of their relationship. Kier told me that when James proposed to her (in his lovely Irish accent during intermission of a play) she started crying. He looked up at her and said, “Why are you crying?? It isn’t going to be THAT bad.” Love these two 

Kier and James, thank you so much for inviting me to celebrate your wedding with you!
