Seriously y’all I can’t even begin to tell you how giddy I get by looking at these bad boys. It was such a cool experience being up on the campus that we both went to and have such fond memories at. We had a one year overlap when Mark was in Law school there and I was a freshman……yes we clearly had different experiences there you know since he like went to college in the 90’s but that is a whole different story ;-)
This is on the main campus with the Century Tower and University Auditorium
Since you know what a planner I am I researched when the students were off for Summer break and sweet it was the end of June……in Gainesville…..aka the Swamp in the dead middle of Summer. So Julie sent some of her cool Michigan air down our way and thankfully it was in the low 70’s when we started bright and early. The night before we got into town we just drove around reminiscing about the places we use to hang at and gawking at all the new things that went up “oh they have a Trader Joe’s now what????” Then went to our favorite sushi place….hold the soy sauce for me….salt and I aren’t friends when it comes to pictures, cue Mark thinking I’m crazy but that’s all par for the course right?
We checked into our hotel and talk about the cutest thing ever. You know you are in Gator country when your turn down chocolates are these.
We tried to scam getting a few more but even Mark who can charm just about anyone failed. Wouldn’t these be the cutest favors for a party?
It was so special being able to have the campus to ourselves and my amazing photographer Dustin who walked miles around it with us so we could hit all our favorite landmarks. I seriously have like 100 favorite pictures. So here is the next “roll out” if you will. We still have 7 months eek! So we need to keep a few things secret right? Okay let’s get into it. Sorry for the photo dump.
Okay you ready for the “serious face” picture. Mark nailed it….of course. My photographer actually said to me “I mean seriously does he have a bad side?”
I was pretty happy I usually look like I’m about to Tanya Harding someone’s knees out when I attempt any sort of serious look but this one seriously I crack up every time I see it. I kinda dig it and laugh all at the same time. What do you think?
Nothing like snuggling up close to someone when you are sweating in the Florida Summer.
Costume change! I’m not even going to tell you where that happened….all I can say is thank goodness I did sports and can change on the way to something.
No big deal totally got engaged on January 14th….how about that prime location figured out after the fact?
A few more before I run over my allotted amount for this one!
Shout out to this post about how to sweat proof your makeup it really stood up with all those primers and setting sprays. Even the last pictures of the day my makeup and red lip stain was holding strong with no transfer to Mark.
Alright so what do y’all think? I have so many more but I don’t want to bombard you with all of them at once. Once again shout out to my fabulous photographer at Sunglow Photography. Thank you for all your beautiful work and patience Dustin!
