Adventures in Wedding Planning

Ya know, just in case y’all aren’t completely tired of hearing about Justin and I, today’s blog post is taking a little trip down memory lane today. I’m excited to share these fun, and slightly embarrassing photos of us throughout our relationship! 

On July 6th, we’ll have been together for 5 1/2 years! And on August 5th we will finally be married!!! 🙂 

These photos will walk y’all through when we were just friends, to our mission trip to The Bowery, through graduations, and beach trips, to everything in between. Ahhh!!! Here we go! 🙂 


This was when we thought we were “matching.”
