Emailing with a fellow wedding vendor tonight and he said: “Vacation > Everything Else”. Now ain’t THAT the truth?! So while I meant to have more posts scheduled last week while I was gone, it just didn’t happen and instead, I enjoyed some SERIOUSLY needed R&R down in Myrtle Beach last week. A week at the beach, reading fantasy novels and trying not to get sunburnt was exactly what I needed. My pre-vacation twitching eye would agree.
But now I am slowly getting back into the swing of things – cleaning up my inbox, kicking ass at yesterday’s DIY Workshop, and now blogging a GORGEOUS sunrise engagement session from An Endless Pursuit. While I loved every second of vacation, I can’t lie, I did miss you all a bit :) Let’s do this!

The proposal story from Logan’s perspective:
I proposed to Abby by getting my best friends together to help me serenade her. With Jon on drums, John on bass, Austin on guitar and me on ukulele, we played an original love song for her on the stage of a church in Richmond, VA. I surreptitiously invited Abby and I’s parents and best friend to join in the festivities. She was brought into the church blindfolded and led onstage by me. When the song was over, I got on one knee, proposed and then turned her around to see all of our loved ones in the front row of the pews cheering us on.

The thing about inviting all of your loved ones into a small town is that it is impossible to coordinate everyone’s movements. That morning I brought Abby to our favorite breakfast joint “Crossroads” so everyone else could get to the venue and set up for the event. As we’re eating, I look out the window and see my Mom and my Step-Dad Bob coming towards the restaurant.
I start freaking out and yell, terrified, “LETS HAVE A STARING CONTEST!!!” so she won’t look around. Thank goodness my mom saw us before Abby won the staring contest and ran away without being seen. After the proposal my mom said “I just really wanted a bagel with cream cheese and that place was only a block away!”
Love so much about this engagement session from An Endless Pursuit AND excited to share that we will have Abby & Logan’s AMAZING wedding on the blog this week as well! Check back on the blog this afternoon to find out who won our Ribbons & Bluebird giveaway!
