Good morning and happy birthday to me! Today I turn 22, wow!
This past week has been c-r-a-z-y – Derek and I have jumped into a lot of big projects (and are starting to make a fair dent in our wedding thank-you’s!) and it’s honestly just been a busy bee week. I did manage to start the name-changing process–which besides the very drab hour in the government office–has all been quite exciting! :)
And so with all the busyness, I was really really looking forward to Jim and Amber’s Galena wedding. Galena, Illinois is a beautifully quirky city full of tons of history and tons of gorgeous bed and breakfasts, restaurants, and shops. In a way, downtown Galena is wonderfully slow. The architectural details and amazing shop owners allow you to slow down and breathe. Jim and Amber’s wedding celebration began at the lovely Stillman Inn and the entire day revolved around family, friends, and the joy of every small moment. We stopped at some fantastic locations and the rain held off just long enough for us to capture some really amazing portraits. :) Enjoy!
I hope you have the chance to sloooow down and enjoy the small moments today. Have a beautiful Thursday!
