Daryl & Angela are such mellow and happy people. Daryl, being so sweet, sent flowers to Angela every Monday when they were dating. Angela couldn’t resist this charming fellow. So of course when he asked her to marry him, she said yes! Daryl went above and beyond with groom duties. He did a ton of the wedding crafting and decorating including much of the reception furniture because he wanted Angela to have the perfect wedding. And it was! The wedding was a wonderland chock full of DIY crafts and inspiration. Angela wanted a laid back wedding full of her closest friends and family. The Dancing Deer Lodge in Stillwater, OK was the perfect location with cabins and the whole grounds to celebrate in a beautiful outdoor setting. As the sun set on the horizon they shared their vows under a large beautiful tree and they partied the night away while jamming with the band.

    Jessica Jones Walters - Love the pics. My favorite is the candid of you two in black and white walkin under the sparklers.

It’s hard to believe that it was technically winter in New Zealand when we met Kyle and Ashleigh at Piha Beach. It’s obviously a beautiful location year round and the perfect spot to celebrate this newly engaged couple. We walked along the beach and watched the big waves roll in and crash upon the rocks. All the while, the massive Lion Rock loomed majestically against the horizon of the wondrous seascape. It was our first time meeting the happy twosome and it was touching hearing how Kyle had actually proposed to Ashleigh at the beach. They love the beach and it brings back many wonderful memories of times together. They are so much fun to be around. Kyle and Ashleigh have the move contagious laugh. The water may have been a bit cold but the sun, which was soon setting, had been warming the black sands all day. It was so much fun watching them run, splash, and laugh their hearts out by the cold sea side.

While in New Zealand, we were lucky enough to have spent a day with one of my high school friends, Maylen, and her family. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect as it was their 13th wedding anniversary. They wanted some photos together around Rotorua where they live. We visited several places including the Rotorua Museum with the most lush gardens even during the winter and the enchanting Waiotapu (Maori for “sacred waters”) which is an active geothermal wonderland. The landscape in this town couldn’t be more diverse, from the government gardens by the museum which was filled with flowers and greeneries, to the boiling mud pools, geysers, and hot springs just minutes away. Throughout the whole trip, we were always in awe with what New Zealand has in store for us in every town or city that we stopped at.
