the beginning & save the date

during our time spent in florida with these peeps... 
(john, sis sam, me, mama, nephew colton, sdad rick, bro alex, sis jess, bro gf kelli, and broinlaw taylor)
john and i decided to spend some time on the beach to have our first go around of an engagement session.  my sister jessie and mom came along for the fun so i figured it would be fun to share some of the pictures and announce the date!

waahooo!  OCTOBER 20, 2012!
we thought this may be used as our save the date but then one of my favorite photographers agreed to have a session in lexington when we got home, so we decided to go with one of those. (fingers crossed, the photo shoot is this weekend!) 

jessie and mom had a blast telling us to pose certain ways and dictate the forms.

it was a gorgeous afternoon so the backgrounds were basically flawless.

my handsome fiancé. and me.

i've heard shadows of holding hands were romantic...

we did some jumping shots
("we jumped on the date" idea for save the dates. haha)

then some close up-ish shots. he's a stud. did you see that dimple?

he's a keeper.

then jessie and mom got jealous and wanted a few pictures of them too.  who am i to say no to an opportunity like that?!

it looks sweet but really we were saying things like this to each other 
"ugh, i'm soo ready for another drink!" 
"are you sitting in water?" 
"i'm hungry" 
"so you're telling me we aren't even using these pictures but we're still taking them?" 

to keep ya updated, here's what i've accomplished so far:
groom? check.
engagement session photographer? check.
wedding day photographer? check.
wedding dress? check. (i can't include a link because clearly mr. kentuckyblonde occasionally reads this!)

any must have advice to give to this wedding planning bride?
