Theeeeeeeese two + me = a match made in heaven. Heavenly match reason numero uno – they are BRONCOS!!!! “Fight on, fight on for West-ernnnnn, grab the ball, make the score, win the gaaaaaaa-mah!” When I lived at the Sigma Kappa house, I went up and down the hallways at 6:30am sharp on game day singing the fight song to put the girls in the tailgating spirit. (Did you know that most of the girls did not know the fight song before I moved in? That changed very quickly. I even offered to print the words.) So when Kirsten and Matt showed up in full Bronco gear, I almost fell out of my chair. High fives went all around.
Heavenly match reason numero dos – they were enthusiastically on board for snow photos! In Grand Haven for that matter! And good thing, friends…cause at that point, my dear hometown of GH had seen approximately 120 inches of snow. That’s a $*%^ ton.
I know everyone is so over the snow at this point, but I’m still delighting in the fact that it gave me some of the most beautiful engagement photos I’ve ever taken. I put off posting these until their Save the Dates went out so that I wouldn’t ruin any surprises. Enjoy my favorites from our session. 🙂
My fave! And also their Save The Date pic. 🙂
Thank you so much for traveling to the lake shore for your snowy engagement photos. I hope you love them as much as I do! I can not WAIT for your BEAUTY-full wedding this summer!!
Kirsten + Matt
Dating :: July 15 2008 :: Engaged :: December 7 2013 :: Wedding :: August 15 2014
First Date :: (as told by Kirsten) Matt texted me and asked me- I said maybe, then Yes a few days later. We went to a mutual friend’s graduation party, then saw the movie, Kung Fu Panda, then went to a bonfire together afterwards. After that night we were inseparable.
Kirsten, describe Matt on the first date :: Nervous but fun. At the bonfire he pushed me into a bush and made fun of me when I accidentally said I had syrup on my arm, meaning to say sap, and I text him saying “I hate you” which was autocorrected to say “I have you”. It was a super embarrassing moment but ended up being our first inside joke and the foundation of our relationship.
Matt, describe Kirsten on the first date :: Beautiful
KIRSTEN :: Matt’s face when he sees me in my dress! He is secretly a big softie and I love seeing that emotional side of him 🙂
KIRSTEN :: THE GUEST LIST!
MATT :: Everything coming together
KIRSTEN :: It’s never too early. Start NOW.
