On My Mind This Monday

We had quite the productive wedding weekend.

Church done.

Restaurant done.

Party venue done.

Photographer, possibly done.

Which is good, considering we're having the wedding in about 7 months.

We've decided to get married on our 5th anniversary this fall.  Awesome, but definitely a shorter-than-average engagement.

So we got the celebrations started right away with a lovely engagement party hosted by my future MIL over the weekend.  Lots of love-themed decor (perfect for Valentine's week) and yummy food and drinks.

There was A LOT more food, decor, people, and love than what these few measly photos represent but after about 3 minutes of shooting, I put the camera down and just started chatting. 

I do have one of those Instagram photos the kids are so wild about these days, though...

But, even with all that, I think the highlight of my weekend was seeing our 6-month old niece dancing to Lady Gaga.  Girl's got good taste in music.
