[Wedding] Engagement photos

As you can imagine (with the wedding TOMORROW eeeek!), I’ve been pretty crazy – hence, not a lot of time for blogging.

BUT, because they are so fabulous, I wanted to make sure I shared some of our amazing engagement photos – done by the wonderfully talented, Pete Redel! I’ve known Pete for a long time – and a few times I’ve jokingly said to him “you’re going to shoot my wedding”…and here we are, 5 or so years later. And he is! And I couldn’t be happier! He’s so incredibly skilled – he can even make goofy Tom and me look good! :)

Here’s just a few of my favorites:

Can’t wait to see the wedding photos!!

If you are EVER looking for a photographer, definitely give Pete a look! He doesn’t only do engagements/weddings but he also does amazing family photos, graduation/senior portraits, events, etc. Check him out!

[Wedding] Surprise Bridal Shower

Seriously, I have the best work team/friends/crew in the WORLD from the National Aquarium. They threw me a (total!) surprise bridal shower yesterday! Too cute.

It’s been an INSANE week…and that’s putting it lightly. Our wedding is less than two weeks away. They know I’m a little on edge. haha However, when a meeting was put on my calendar for 4:30pm on a Friday afternoon, I honestly didn’t even blink…but I should have. It was ALL A RUSE! :)

They had planned a surprise bridal shower for me! Complete with signs and presents and guests from all different walks of work-life! Not to mentionĀ a cold drink handed to me when I walked in! It was so amazingly humbling and wonderful!

This was allĀ planned by my unbelievably incredible teammate, Nabila! Some of you know her but if you don’t, just know that she saves me daily. Ok FINE…more like minute to minute. She is such an amazingly talented lady – don’t know what we would do without her! <3

Also, check out these GORGEOUS things she got me from Antropologie! She (aka the world) knows I love pie!
