I'm 30 today! (How did that happen?) :) For my birthday, I'd love to share our engagement photos. It's been 11 years since Alan and I first met at a stranger's quinceanera and about eight years of dating. We've been through so much together, and he's still inspiring and motivating me every day. Alan, I love you!
Photographer—We worked with our wonderful photographer friend Daniel, who runs Content magazine. He's so quirky and cheerful; we were laughing the entire time.
Location—We took most of the pictures at a place near and dear to our hearts at Quicksilver Park, a beautiful rustic spot we frequently hike, and had a little picnic at a nearby park.
Wardrobe—The white dress I wore is the one I had made in Cambodia which I'd considered wearing as my wedding dress up until recently. The green dress is from Anthropologie. Alan's suit is from Zara.
Props—The tassel is a DIY my friends helped me make (thanks, Lauren and Dianna!) It was supposed to be for the giant balloon (that got away), but we put it to good use anyway. The rad vintage picnic basket is borrowed from my friend PJ, event design extraordinaire of Going Lovely.
