Wrap It Up Pretty!
April 13, 2012

We've reached the end of yet another wonderful week, SMPers - and we sure hope you lovelies plan on taking full advantage of the sunny weather we'll be having this weekend with some patio time and picnics with your honey.  But, before we bid you adieu, we have one last dose of pretty for your Friday evening.  Yep, an uber-stylish couple, a sweet as can be love story (chance meeting in London, anyone?) and a plethora of glorious, light-filled images by Alixann Loosle Photography are sending us off into the weekend... and we couldn't be more thrilled.  So, clear your calendars for a night of LOVELY and we'll see you first thing Monday morning! xoxo

From the Bride-to-Be... My fiance and I randomly met while we were both attending graduate school in London. We had both attending and graduated from the same university in the States, but never crossed paths until we were halfway around the world. We experienced all our firsts in the remarkable city of London ... first date, first kiss, first fight (haha!), and we wanted to recreate that same city feel in our engagements. We couldn't afford to fly ourselves and our photographer back to London just for a photo shoot, so we did the best we could in our local downtown neighborhood. I worked closely with my amazing photographer Alixann Loosle to create the look and feel we were after. My favorite location of the shoot was up on top of a parking garage tucked right in the middle of Salt Lake's high rise buildings. I love the shots of us sitting on the ledge with the city all around us.  I also love Alix's use of warm, soft light that adds the perfect romantic touch to the hard lines of the buildings' architecture. More than anything, I love the handsome face of that boy who is my soon-to-be husband.
