Our Beginning…

Since there are two sides to every love story, I thought I would let you hear it from Jeremy’s perspective today!  Enjoy…

From Jeremy:

It was our junior year of college and a mutual friend introduced us. In all actuality, my best friend, Victor, called me the summer before our meeting and he told me that Kristin was joining our “group” of friends. He was confident that she would be a perfect fit. Little did he know, she was a perfect fit. For me! Although we both separately had our eyes on other people, only a few short weeks into the fall semester, our eyes shifted, and we saw each other for the first time early one Saturday morning.

Ironically, the very first thing we did “together” was a photo-shoot! Not intentional, but nevertheless, we took pictures. This was prior to the days of Kristin Nicole Photography and another friend took our pictures for her photography course.

Well one thing turned to the next…Our first lunch was with a friend…Our first date was Sunday night church…Phone numbers were exchanged…text messages flew off our phones…love was in the air.

To make our relationship official, I went the old school route. I called her dad. Weird, right? Well little did I know that he works for the government, specializing in hostage negotiation!!! No joke! After two two hour conversations (yes, two phone calls, two hours each), including him extracting information from me that I didn’t even know that I knew, her father gave his blessing on our relationship.

The rest is history! We got engaged 9 months later, graduated from college, got married, entered graduate school, started Kristin’s photography business, and the love has never stopped. Sure there have been bumps, but the bumps only make us fly higher in the end.

I love you babe,

Jeremy

“extracting information” lol, I think you watched to many seasons of 24….

Aw! This is really cute. I remember when all of this happened. lol. I’m glad to see you used on of my photos!

Oh my goodness. This is the sweetest story. I just love it very much. May you always have love!

Very sweet love story. And I think it’s so nice that you walk together in the evenings. God bless you both!

Our favorite wedding momento

This past weekend while Jeremy and I were enjoying out weekend away, we started talking about our wedding almost 2 years ago. Granted, since my life revolves around weddings we do think a lot about our wedding. We started talking though about what we treasure the most from our wedding, and we both decided that it is without a doubt our wedding album. For both Jeremy and me this is probably different than what we would have said 3 years ago when deciding what photographer and package to get for our wedding. Back then having the digital files was the most important thing to us, and don’t get me wrong I love the files and include them in all wedding packages. However, a beautiful wedding album is just something different.

Our album sits on an end table in our living room, and gets looked through at least once a week, whether it is by us, or by a friend who has stopped over. It is a collection of our favorite wedding images and I know that it will be an heirloom passed down to our children and grandchildren.

Brides, if you are not sure if you want to get an album I encourage you to think about it  little bit more. I promise you that it is not something you will regret purchasing, and I don’t want you to regret it if you don’t. If you have already booked a package that does not include an album and think you would like to add it, it is not too late! Send me an email and I can discuss adding the album to your package or bumping you up to the next package.

Here are a few photos of our album.

Wedding albums are wonderful. :-)

Jennifer

Beautiful pictures :-)

Your dress was stunning! I don’t have a wedding album because we went to the Justice of the Peace. Can you believe we didn’t even take ONE picture that day? I have panic attacks when I have to be photographed. Seriously! : )

I am getting to be a regular over here, aren’t I? : ) I am so glad to have a new blog friend like you!

Look at that! We were totally on the same wave length today! Your album looks great, and I agree about thinking the CD was so important at the time. Not so much anymore…

Wedding albums are essential! Love your album cover. Very rustic, but elegant.

[…] think an album is one of the best things you can have as a keepsake from your wedding, and I talked here about how important our album is to us. With all of these different cover options, as well as the […]

March Goals

“If you aren’t failing on occasion, you aren’t dreaming big enough.” I read this quote from Lara Casey a few weeks ago and it has really stuck with me. It is just so true, and this month more than ever I want to dream bigger, work harder, and try to accomplish things that I never thought were possible. Sure, I may fail at some of them, but I have realized that failure is part of life, and if I am not failing, I am not dreaming or trying hard enough to be what I really want to be and accomplish what I really want to accomplish. The quote that I started with came from this amazing blog post written by Lara Casey who is the founder and editor of Southern Weddings Magazine, but I believe that everyone should read it because it is incredibly powerful. If you want to accomplish your dreams, read it!

So with that…here are my goals for March. Goals marked with an * are carried over from last month

submit a wedding for publication

Get a sample album

Finish client wedding albums

Take my last midterm ever (only 2 1/2 months from my Master’s degree)

Get an album swatch kit

Get rid of clothes and stuff that we don’t need in preperation for moving in May

Keep my desk neat so that I can be more productive

Have dinner with friends

Try P90x, it scares me a little but I will try it.

Try a new recipe*

Finish reading II Kings and I Chronicles

Make time with God a bigger priority

 

Here is a picture of Rick and Bethany, their album is one of my goals this month, and is going to be a very fun goal to cross off

Weekend away

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you know that Jeremy and I were on Vacation this past week. We didn’t go too far from home, but it was so nice to spend 3 nights away from home and have time to focus on each other and just having fun together. We had a ton of Fun! I thought I would share a few photos from the weekend. We just relaxed for most of the weekend which was amazing! We also went shopping (like a lot), went on a cruise to see the Dolphins at the beach and made an undisclosed number of visits to Cold Stone for Jeremy’s favorite icecream. I will be sharing more of the great things we found shopping another day, but for now here are a few photos of our lovely weekend.

I was slightly upset when she announced who won…I really wanted it, even though I don’t like coffee…lol. Congrats Victor. It’s even better that you actually worked at Starbucks!

Victor

YES!!!!!! I never win drawings! lol. When I opened the link you emailed me, I fully expected to see a full post of Victor’s stupid faces lol.

Roxanne

Kristin, I really, really want to see the different faces of Victor. Please!!!

Kristin

Lol…I contemplated saying in my email that that is what it was…just for fun.

Laura

Haha! Congrats, Victor! Make sure you savor it ;)

Okay, so in all honesty I wanted to enter this giveaway just because who doesn’t like the chance to win things? But I figured it wouldn’t be fair because I absolutely despise coffee haha. Loved the idea though!
