From the moment I met these two and we gushed over the light and scenery in their beautiful engagement photos shot in Hawaii while there on vacation - I knew that we would get along just fine! Abi and Juris have been together for a long time and the length of their love shows in the way they share conversation, look at each other and seem to understand one another on a very deep level. It was a chilly April day, but these two threw an amazing party for all of their loving family and friends! I may have shook my booty just a bit! In the midst of it all, I found myself a new top 10 wedding venue in Arlington Estate. Potential brides, check it out! It's absolutely stunning and their standard decor is amazing.

We are looking forward to the start of spring wedding season and with that a little look at one we did last May. The buds on the trees were so beautiful that day and I for one, can't wait to see those pop out again soon. These two are simply adorable - I felt an instant connection with them as we spoke about their families on the day we met. I remember it like it was yesterday, but in actuality, it was well over 2 years ago now. If you've ever seen "This is Us", these 2 are just like that...or maybe it's mostly their love of the Pittsburgh Steelers - lol! Their fan-dom is so strong, that they even brought "terrible towels" to their engagement session!  Even if the Steelers don't win the superbowl this year, I know you two will be cheering along happily until the bitter end. FYI, my Saints made the playoffs **insert happy dance here*!
