As if Christmas isn’t already the most wonderful time of the year, you know what makes it even better?! Becoming engaged during this magical season!!! In 2007, Butch proposed on Christmas Day next to the tree we had cut down and decorated together. I remember this day SO vividly! As if it was yesterday!! We spent our first few 'oh-my-gosh-I’m-so-happy-I-could-EXPLODE’ days in complete bliss as we excessively used the word fiancé/fiancée and shared our news with our loved ones. :) Even now, eight years later, I can’t help but feel excited for all of the newly engaged couples! Butch & I wanted to share a bit of our story, and say to all of the over-the-top-happy brides and grooms to-be: we’re looking forward to hearing YOUR story! This is a huge part of why we love what we do. We’re constantly learning about and getting to know the love stories of couples who blow us away with their love, kindness & authenticity!! If you or someone you hold closely in your heart just became engaged, we would love to connect and hear more about your story! Say hello, and let's chat! This is our favorite time of the year and we cannot wait to share in your excitement!! Until then, continue to enjoy smiling so big your face hurts! :)

Love, Kelsy
