Europe: The final chapter

We took the train from Florence to Rome. It was the most beautiful train ride. Everything looked just like a movie set. We sat across from the cutest kids who were from Rome but visiting their dad who lives in Florence. They spoke in the most beautiful Italian and did their homework the whole way home. We spent 2 days in Rome and the first day we shared with our friends Benj & Maddie. We took pictures in the streets and I got to wear my vintage red dress.We ate the best lasagna, which tasted like a bunch of angels thrown in a mixer with flour & sauce. The wine was made in house and the bread was again, like angels & flour. Delicious. Of course we had gelato & espresso..and I had the best donut of my life. We went to the Vatican, the Spanish steps, Colosseo, and a bunch of other important places that, due to my lack of history knowledge, I don’t know. My prince has a bunch of great pics on his phone and I will get those to you later. We left the country super early on New Year’s day so we watched the fireworks from our hotel. They went on for nearly an HOUR! It was beautiful as there are no firework regulations in Rome. It was like watching 30 Disney World fireworks displays all at once.

(Yes, that is us at the Pantheon)

And that was our trip!

We flew back into DC and the next morning, my husband had to fly back out to the West Coast. He will be moving here in 12days and we get the keys to our new place tomorrow!! I hope to get our home all set up before he gets here.

I am so humbled & blown away that you have read this crazy story. Your feedback has brought me to tears. I could have never written this story. Have a crazy awesome week!

Europe: Chapter V

When my love told me that we were having a photographer flown out to Italy to take our pictures, I was BEYOND excited. Since I dabble in getting my picture taken for a living, nothing sounded better than a photoshoot in Italy, but when he told me that the photographer was some dude named Marcus, who was a friend of a friend who happened to be in Europe while we were there, I got nervous. I am very persnickety about my photographers so I kinda need to love their work before we shoot. My love wouldn’t let me see any of the work that this ‘Marcus’ has done. I was slightly concerned and went ahead a googled ‘wedding photography in Florence’ so I could get some great ideas for our shoot. We went outside to wait for ‘Marcus’ to pull up via taxi. The taxi pulls up in front of our hotel and a girl gets out followed by ‘Marcus’. It was our sweet friends Maddie & Benj!! Did I mention that I married the most thoughtful & sneaky man? I ran upstairs to put on my vintage dress and we headed out to shoot!


We had a BLAST shooting with them. Aren’t they AMAZING photographers!!! Go to his blog to see more pics: BENJHAISCH !! I HIGHLY recommend him for your photographic needs (our pics are towards the bottom but enjoy all the ones before). I am so thankful to the LORD, my Prince & the Haisch’s for giving me the best photoshoot of my life!

Oh…Then we headed to Rome with our friends for more pics!!!

Europe: Chapter IV

Florence was my favourite city that I visited in Italy. I ate more gelato and drank more espresso than I probably should have. Hazelnut & Almond were my favourite gelato flavors just in case you were wondering. We took the train from Venice to Florence which was a lot of fun. We went to the Uffizi Museum which held some very important pieces of art/sculpture but after about 10 minutes, everything started to look the same. Here are some more pics:

We were there 2 days and on the 3rd day, a photographer named Marcus was suppose to show up…

Europe: Chapter III

We only spent the day in Paris. Our flight was leaving that evening to a destination that I didn’t yet know. I was actually able to go through the entire flight without knowing where we were going for our honeymoon!

As we were descending into a most lovely country,  I heard the pilots announcement welcoming my husband and I and i guess the rest of the plane to Venice. AHHHH!!

Venice was lovely and quiet. No cars allowed in the city. We took a boat to get where we wanted to go, had midnight mass at St. Mark’s Basilica for Christmas Eve, ate the most amazing almond cakes each day and took the water taxi to the most colorful island of Burano. We were in Venice for 3 days. And I saw Saint Nicholas on Christmas!

Then we headed to Florence!
