Mike and I got engaged! Our wedding is on June 22, 2014 and I still have so much planning to do. He proposed back in August and I promised my Instagram followers that I would share our engagement photos. We are still very early in the whole planning process. Our wedding will be a primarily DIY wedding so LOTS of things to figure out. We are still in the market for a great photographer so if anyone knows of an affordable photographer in the DFW area, please let me know.

I'm sure someone will ask me about how he proposed so here's the jist of the tale :) If y'all knew Mike, you would know he's a very carefree and funny guy who loves to joke around. All week he had been asking me to marry him and of course I would say yes. Then one day after work, we were having dinner at our house and he was tending to my every need (which was nice but kind of weird at the same time lol). Then eventually he took me in his arms and was saying all these nice things to me and sounding all choked up. He then got on one knee and asked me to marry him.... his face was all red and his eyes were misty. At first I thought he was joking (again) so I laughingly told him to stop being weird (OMG Steph). He then pulled out the ring and I knew he was for real.

Later that night he told me that he had missed the delivery truck with my ring so he spent part of the day chasing the truck down to be able to get the ring that day. He isn't great at keeping secrets or surprises so he just HAD to propose that day. Although it may sound ordinary to some, it was heartfelt, intimate and so US. I am excited to start a new chapter in our lives and I'm already getting baby fever (yikes).

I always go off on a tangent.... anywho, here are just a few photos from our engagement shoot.

If any of my readers have any tips, do and don'ts on weddings, I would appreciate the advice!
