Whew! After 3+ weeks traveling all over the east coasts of North & Central America (Savannah, NYC, Connecticut and Panama!) I'm finally back and settling in. It's hard to miss relaxing on the beaches of Bocas del Toro, but I'm ready to start catching up: on work, with co-editors and friends, and with our fab FW vendors! I hope you're enjoying the new year as much as I am... and here's what topped my can't-miss list this week.
WHAT WE'RE LOVING THIS WEEK
Is there a better way to kick off the New Year than with a proposal? The lovely Merari sent us the most perfect pick of images for us to share with you... Chris and Stephany's proposal captured at sunset in Matheson Hammock Park. The groom-to-be brought Merari along to capture this special moment as a gift to his beautiful future wife. Could this be any more beautiful? Le sigh.
Gold flamingos, a coconut-crusted wedding cake and tons of tropical sparkle = gorgeous tropical inspiration from two of our faves, Sugar(ed) Event Design and Planning and Jonathan Connolly Photography.
How adorable is this Notre Dame engagement?
I LOVE how team colors and Van Gogh come together for some gorgeous wedding inspiration.
Such a pretty, dreamy bridal portrait session.
Your wedding might be a little boring and unromantic... but you know what? That's just fine.
Finally, here's one more peek of Chris and Stephany's proposal. Says Merari, "He got down on one knee and she yelled YES, OF COURSE! a few seconds after. There were lots of happy tears and kisses!" The emotion Merari captured here just says it all...
CONGRATS, Stephany and Chris! We're so excited for you. Happy Friday, y'all!
