    Photo Friday: Swiss Engagement Spot

    Since we just had our one year wedding anniversary, I’m still on a sappy love high and wanted to do a Photo Friday post showcasing the spot where we got engaged. In May 2013, David and I took a trip around Europe. We’d been together for three years at that point, but somehow we had never taken a trip with just the two of us before! So we wanted to make the most of it.…

Having a videographer at our wedding was undoubtedly one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process, and even though it was our biggest expense, it was worth every penny.

    A Heavenly Honeymoon in Thailand

    By Alexis Our honeymoon in June was spent blissfully relaxing in two resorts along the coast of southern Thailand. It was quite the journey getting there (from Honolulu to Phuket, it was something like 36 hours of travel), but when we finally arrived and settled in, it all felt worth it. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect honeymoon……
