Happy Thursday everyone!
First and foremost, a huge thank you for all the wonderful comments I got on yesterday's blog. You all are too kind to me and I can't express enough gratitude for everything you contribute to Simply Evani and frankly, to my life! I have the BEST blog friends.
So one of my lovely readers got engaged this weekend (Yay, Y! So happy for you girl!) and it reminded me of some photos from a beautiful wedding Rob and I attended back in September. Check out this beautiful outdoor venue!
The barn was located behind the bride's family home so basically the reception was on her families' beautiful land! It was a wedding right out of Pinterest, with the burlap table runners and the groom and groomsmen wearing suspenders and newsboy caps. The bride of course looked so beautiful. The reception occurred right before sunset so it was the perfect span of time for photographs too (magic hour anyone?). Overall, a beautiful night for a beautiful couple! Thanks for having us E and I 🙂
So....weddings. All I have to say on this topic is that after almost 7 years of being together there is only 1 question that gets us feeling awkward in front of other people. Honestly, Rob and I talk about marriage and weddings in private, relatively often. But if you ask us "So when's the big day/wedding?" with both of us present, it gives us 5 seconds to come up with what we spend hours talking about. More often than not, Rob gets this deer-in-headlights look in his eyes and I end up starting a schpeal of our reasons for waiting, most of it being our personal desires for financial security. Overall the moral of the story: We've been together for almost 7 years (don't worry it IS happening) and we'll get married when we darn right choose to! If you're invited, you'll get the invite. (And if you're just DYING to ask about the big day, it's always easier for us to answer individually.)
I know everyone warned me there would come a day that everyone I knew would be getting married. That, I was somewhat prepared for. But I did NOT know that when I turned 24, every engagement video I watched would end up making me cry hysterically. THIS one gets me everytime (click on the link, wait for it to load and press play!). It's like as soon as the girl realizes she's being proposed to, I'm BAWLING. It's not a pretty sight. I swear I wasn't always a helpless ball of emotion. Or maybe I was, who knows...
Am I the only insane woman in the world? What videos make you cry these days?
(Share the videos! I love to cry. Lol)
P.S. I love you Rob, thanks for putting up with the constant barrage of people wondering when our day will come. I know it will come someday, don't worry. (But if we get to our 10 year anniversary and I don't have a ring yet, I will ask you myself. You know I will.)
