365 to go - #lawlovesjulie wedding countdown!

Saturday, March 22, 2014
Our wedding is exactly 365 days from today!

We're so excited!
I promise to keep the wedding buzz on the blog to a minimum, and I promise not to leave you completely in the dark and wondering "what's up with them?"

A couple of weeks ago my amazing brother came down to San Diego to take our Engagement Photos. Here are some of our favorite photos and outtakes.

We started out at La Jolla Shores right before sunset.




My brother had a GoPro attached to his hat. He had it set to take a photo every 5 seconds and caught some fun moments with it.




We love this pier. We actually shot the cover of Park Bench from the top of it!!


We had to take a Toes in the Sand photo too!

My brother kept telling us to move our feet a bit this way... a bit that way... little did we know he was just snapping photos of us and not our feet at that point!

My brother has a way to capture me like nobody else. 

Right before sunset we practiced a few dance moves.

It got chilly so out came my tula pink neptune bee quilt.



This photo was from my brother's GoPro and it is one of my absolute favorites!!

We then headed out to dinner.


We love frequenting places that get to know us and make us surprise deserts like this one!


Sometimes I'm just a goofball!! (but hey Law is too!)

The next morning we headed to Torrey Pines just after sunrise.


This one is a favorite too!


Love the sunburst!

Lastly we rocked our Stately Type shirts at Legoland.

I am making a quilt for our wedding and would LOVE for you to be a part of it. Below are the first few blocks for the quilt. I'll do a post in a couple of days with all the details of how you can make a block.


The yummy Kona solids colors for the quilt!

Just wanted to say what lovely moments your brother captured. Beautiful photos of a couple that really have something most people have to stand on soap boxes and brag about.
