Some close friends of ours got engaged this week and since the bride-to-be is a loyal blog reader of Flawless Occasions, I had to make a post just for her. Donnie and Natalie were both in our bridal party when my husband and I were married in 2008. They are a great couple who we have shared many wonderful times with, and I'm so excited to help Natalie with all of her wedding plans just like she supported me when I was planning my own wedding.
When we were celebrating with them down in New Smyrna Beach this weekend, I used it as an opportunity to try out my recent birthday present - a Nikon D40 camera!!! We had a great time doing some "engagement photos" on the beach where Donnie had proposed a few days earlier -- we even had him re-enact the proposal so we could catch it on film. Although I am definitely not going to be joining the world of professional photography, it is a fun hobby -- check out my photos and congratulations Nat and Donnie, we love you guys.
