When Andy and I were first engaged and were planning our wedding, I remember others (Andy's sister Tammy and her husband, Jeff) telling us to just do a destination wedding, or better yet, templ-ope (it's like eloping but in a Temple and yes, there's a nice Temple in Las Vegas even for us Momos!) Of course we argued that we wanted a traditional Temple wedding and reception following. Of course. Naturally. Duh. Because you know, that's what optimistic, recently engaged couples think.
And then wedding planning begins....
And guess what? It sucks.
It's not as glamorous as television makes it. Bridezilla is a real thing.
And so was the story of my BFF's wedding (upcoming in July in a small community within Napa)... and the other day, she called me and groaned and moaned about how she should have just had a destination (more destination than NorCal) wedding. "Or maybe eloped?" I asked her eagerly... waiting for the moment I could say, "I told you so!" .....
But then again, everyone else (married and more expertised) told us too. *sigh.
Here are a few of my favorite engagement shots of them. San Fran is just beautiful.
