We just received images back from our elopement! Elizabeth did an incredible job and went above & beyond making our day sweeeeet.
This is one of the images from our day that keeps popping into my head.
Sooo it's STORY TIME.
Matthias is a cowboy. Now, he'd laugh if you said that to him (he laughs when I say it), but it's true. He's a hat wearing, gun carrying, eagle who never takes his boots off. And me... Welllllll, I'm not even close. The most country I've probably ever been is jamming out to a Taylor Swift song. *que the expected remarks on how un-country Swift is*
Well, we decided on a Tuesday we were ready to marry & we set the date for the following Sunday. (Why? Why not was our question!) As the days unfolded quickly, we tried to find little and meaningful ways to make our elopement/tiny wedding full of our us-ness. I knew what I needed to do. I needed a beautiful pair of boots to surprise him. I have never owned or worn a pair... Most of my life I've been known to wear "adventure boots" (because I have no idea what else to call them? any help, you guys? ;)) ... but cowgirl boots? HA! SO the search began... and ended very quickly.
The first store we stopped in I found the perfect pair and it took everything in me NOT TO TELL HIM. Because if you know me, you know when I'm excited I am VERY excited... like, bubbling over, a balloon about to burstttt excited. It was a hard secret to keep ;-) But the expression on his face made it entirely worth it. I mean, come on, look at his sweet laugh.
Now I can't seem to take my boots off. The many weddings I have shot since my own I've worn these boots to. They're special. The kind of special you don't put away in a closet. The kind of special you wear until there's nothing left. Because THAT's a story. <3
