Ferndale, Michigan

This was our first house and my favorite place I’ve ever lived.  We found it pretty easily and knew it was ours when we sat on the front porch the first time, waiting for the landlord to show up.  It’s sad to leave this little piece of Heaven we had for over a year, but we’re on to bigger and (hopefully) better things!

We had a lot of firsts in this house.  We had a lot of fights and a lot of making up. I cried a lot, you made me laugh a ton and we LOVED all of it!  We had beers and bikes! Dinner parties and all-day-moving-watching-fests!  Dancing in the kitchen, late night snacks, early morning breakfasts, puppy parties, garage sales, walks to friends’ houses, walks to bars, walks to restaurants.  We slept on the couch, we slept in our tiny bed, we slept on our air mattress in the middle of the living room floor for a week!  We sang, we made up songs, we listened to our favorite music.  We loved our neighbors, we loved our city, we loved this house.  Let’s never forget Marshall Street in Ferndale, Michigan.  If we ever want to come back here, I’m sure we’re welcome. <3

"Engagement" Photos by Silver Lights Studio

The truth is, we weren't technically "engaged" when these photos were taken, but we had secretly already set a wedding date.  When we saw the pictures Rosie and Shawn, with Silver Lights Studio, took for our friends' engagement photos, we knew we HAD to have them take some for us!

We had so much fun running around our friend's yard, posing with axes and shot guns. Why did we choose axes and shotguns for the shoot?  Not sure.  Maybe 'cuz we're serious bad asses.
