Yesterday marked eleven years together and three years of wedded bliss for us. Time flies. Our friendship started out 18 years ago and somewhere down the road 11 years ago we realized that there was something more than just friendship.
We celebrated at Lawry’s Restaurant – the place that we shared with our closest family and friends over a nice dinner. As always, we are well taken care of by the great staff at Lawry’s and they even gifted us with a celebratory dessert and champagne. Talk about awesome! It was great reminiscing about the past and looking forward to our goals in the future. We kept it simple since we will be heading off on a vacation in the next few weeks. We’ll let you know where we are going soon!
Here are some pics below from that dinner – courtesy of Tracy’s trusty iPhone. And below that is our annual anniversary cake that we have made by the awesome Sylvie from Kupcakespot *not taken by trusty iPhone*.
We first met Lizzi several years ago at a photography conference at WPPI and for some reason we all just hit it off well. We chatted about our goals, photography, food, and completely random stuff. Eventually it turned into friendship and she’s actually part of our talented team when we need her to fill in. So when she approached us to document her and Paul’s wedding day, we were thrilled to be there and photograph their special day. We have to admit, photographing a wedding for another photographer can be intimidating…but, with her awesome team of people she hired for the day….we knew it would be a blast.
As Lizzi and Paul were planning their wedding, we stumbled upon Rancho Providencia by chance and knew that this would be the perfect setting for their celebration. The Spanish styled private home was a gorgeous backdrop for their ceremony along with the lush surroundings. Their dog, Raven also joined in the celebration. We loved all the handmade touches Lizzi incorporated into their wedding day. The gold touches in her signage was just so Lizzi and Paul and you’ve got to check out the hand stamped invitations on the vintage handkerchiefs. Everything about their wedding was just en pointe and gorgeous. Lizzi and Paul, its been wonderful getting to know you both over the years. We are honored that you guys had us there to photograph your first day as husband and wife and we can’t to see what other memories you will create together.
Love you guys! – C&T
