“Climb every mountain, 
Ford every stream, 
Follow every rainbow, 
‘Till you find your dream.”
-Sound of Music

Yes, this song was stuck in my head as I write this blog post, how fitting. The Grand Teton Mountains are located in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and they are absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous and well worth the trip to see them.  Jackson Hole is literally surround by the mountain view.  Let’s just think about that for a minute…. mountain view 24/7. Yes please!  As I’m writing this blog, I actually miss it and would love to go back to do much more.  Here is a little taste of my climb of the Grand Teton Mountains by Lake Jenny.

You probably won’t even believe me when I say this, but I had never been to Mexico nor outside of the country until this year.  Go ahead and gasp!  I was beyond thrilled when I was asked to be my friend Jennifer Togal’s traveling buddy on this adventure.  I actually couldn’t even believe it was real.  I was going to MEXICO!!!  Since I haven’t been out of the country, this gal didn’t have a passport either. And of course I got my passport not a minute later, one week before we left. Hahaha.  I don’t think I finally grasped that I was going until I was physically on the plan. Seriously, I can not wait to travel to the coast again.  Who wants to travel with me??? 🙂

What a perfect Monday!  Minus this torrential downpour we are having in Minnesota.  Hey, it’s better than snow.  This morning one of my bucket list items was checked off.  I am featured on Style Me Pretty wedding blog!!!!!!! I’m doing a happy dance all day today folks. I think I can speak for all vendors that were involved in this shoot by saying we are just dying to share this inspirational shoot with you.  I approached Jenna owner of Blush & Whim a while back and we started a conversation right away about this shoot. Colors? Emotion? Spring? Fall?  I wanted to see in this shoot bold colors, fun accessories (sun-glasses, purses, gifts) laughter and ladies having a great time before their bestie gets hitched. I am a huge fan of details on your wedding day and an even more super fan of shooting them. I encourage my couples to have fun with the details of their wedding day as this is an added personal touch to celebrate them as a couple. Have fun with those details with your girlfriends before you get married to your man as well. Take that added time for fun photos with your besties. Share gifts, drink champagne and get pretty!

I can not thank the vendors enough that were involved in this shoot enough.  Ya’ll killed it.  Stay tuned for Vendor Feature Friday where I brag about each one of them.  But please do yourself a giant favor and check them all out. AMAZING. EVERYONE!!!

I am over joyed with all the opportunities that have come up for me to document on video. I was on set this weekend with Theda Hewuse Watercolor Studio doing a little demo film.  Theda is an ah-mazing watercolor artist out of Wausau, Wisconsin that is captivated by nature.  And if you have been to Wausau this is the perfect place to get out in the woods and just paint.  See her beautiful art work here.  She also has many of her pieces in galleries in the Wausau area.
