Can I just say one thing? I love a good last name. Like, I love my last name now that I’m married.
In case you’re wondering, it’s Auer like Bauer. Like hour. Like our. Like power.
It’s simple, short and sweet. Don’t get me wrong, my maiden name wasn’t bad [though I myself, being a traditionalist, adore being tied to my husband via last name- and everything else]. But a married name is special. A married name is chosen, and I feel that it speaks volumes about me.
So when I met with Erica and she told me Brian’s last name was Winter, I about died. Can you imagine? How completely adorable is that? Any child they have will be the cutest kid in school with that last name. And their 11.11.11 wedding- just on the cusp of that pivotal season- is complete with theme, just being them. Matt and Molly Snelson of Mathieu Photo did it again [and again and again] and knocked my socks off with their gorgeous images. So, meet Erica, meet Brian… meet the [to-be] Winters:
Exactly. See? They get it!!
Erica is exceptionally sweet. She’s graceful and looks you in the eye when you talk with her. And she is so trusting of us. I’m thrilled that we connected on a personal level from the get-go. Chatting with her and knowing that she trusts us and our vision to make her wedding exceptional makes me feel like I’m on a whole new level of loved. And more than that- it shows tremendous things about her character!
Brian fits her like a glove. They’re considerate of one another, genuinely best friends and so excited to begin their life together. It’s amazing to watch and an honor to be a part of!
Oh yeah, she’s also a little bit vixen. In all the best [bridal] ways! Really though, I have a feeling she prefers her time to be spent right here:
In a place where we live the literal Endless Summer, it’s nice to get us a bit of Winter!! So, go leave these Winters some love by commenting lots right here!!!
Take a break with your head on someone’s shoulder today. Romantic or not, it’s real, and we all need us some reality at moments. It’s nice to be needed- and more than that, it’s great to show that you need, too.
