Honeymoon In Victoria, BC

For our honeymoon, Shane and I went to Victoria in British Columbia and had so much fun! Here are a few pictures I took on the trip and Shane will add more soon!

Here we are exactly one week after the wedding enjoying the beauty of Vancouver Island!

The Bridesmaids

Claire Taggart – Maid of Honor

She is the whole world to me. We have shared so much in our lives, from crawling though college. I am so happy to have my best friend Claire at my side on this very important day.

At Laura’s wedding!

In the cold woods a few years back!

Shannon Ingraham- Bridesmaid

Shannon is so special to me. We were roommates for six years and have been through so much together: freshman dorms, working as Residential advisers, graduating college, and life after school. Shannon is always so loving and supportive and positive, I am happy to have you with me on this special day.

Shannon as a pirate!

Shannon, Crystal, and Mom!

Shannon and art!

Laura McKay: Bridesmaid

Laura was my very first friend, and is still so special to me. We have had many wonderful adventures camping, traveling, and sharing important moments in our lives. I am so happy to have her by my side today and always.

Here we are getting ready for Laura’s Wedding!

Crystal’s graduation!

Alissa Goss- Bridesmaid

Alissa is so dear to me! We share a studio together and fuel each other with inspiration, good ideas and courage to continue on our art-making path. Alissa encouraged me to pursue Shane from the very beginning, more than four years ago. Thank you for your loving support on this day and always.

Art Buddies!

Tana Bourland-Bridesmaid

I am blessed to have Tana as a new sister. Thank you for accepting me into your family and for having such a wonderful brother! I can’t wait to share in many family adventures and have you as a good friend.

With Tana and Jonas wine tasting!

Tana, Joanna, Kira, and Cole! If Kira and Cole could walk, they would be in the wedding!


Time Is Moving Quickly!

I am going to be a married woman, and it feels really natural. Shane is so special to me and I am so happy to share my life with him. I am getting pretty excited, even with all of the wedding stress of details and decisions. I am trying to keep my head straight on a commitment of love, fun, and wonderful celebration!

We have completed the invitations! They are beautifuly finished and we have learned so much about our letterpress! Here are a few pictures!

Happy Valentine’s Day

I think most people who know me probably know I’m not really one for making big deals of things or doing anything that draws much attention.

However, today is Valentine’s Day, and the only one that Crystal and I will be spending together as fiancés. Sure, we’ve had a few as “boyfriend/girlfriend” and will hopefully have a great many as “husband/wife,” but this is it as far as celebrating as an engaged couple.

So, on that note, I just want to say in a public place:

Crystal, I love you very, very much, and as much as I love you now, I can’t wait for all the adventures future Valentine’s Day’s will bring!

Shane and Crystal
My Valentine and Me
