Indian Stars + Indian Summers

Star of India/San Diego Harbor
Turns out, I'm like way in love with my husband.
That's good, right?

For our one month anniversary we took at trip back to the place we sealed the deal, San Diego. My sweet sister-in-law, (SIL as she likes to refer to it)
Liz, let us nest in their guest bedroom while we dined and shopped and got our pictures taken by the acclaimed Mr. Wes Johnson, a long time friend (and by long time, i mean he's known me since I was 4 years old!).

I saw the Star of India on someones Facebook profile years ago and dreamed of taking pictures there one day, what better occasion than a in a wedding dress, no?

So, some fancy footwork by the photographer and a few telephone calls later, we were set.

Golly, for someone who takes innumerable amounts of pictures, I was more than nervous to get my picture taken by someone else. For you see the only past experiences I've had like that were school pictures (YIKES not the best memories) and of course Marcus, but he knows better than to not let me erase any nasties. I felt like I might pass out and was tempted to call the whole thing off, but seeing as Wes had driven down from L.A. for the shoot, I put on my game face and went to work.

In the end I'm pretty excited about the results, what do you think?

  18. Ashley,
    You are THE coolest girl ever! I want to meet you when you come down to visit family... We are facebook kin... I grew up in Nielson's ward.  Knew Charity the best, then Christian and Mary.  LOve her!!! I was in a MHS musical (Music Man) with Christian,Marcus, and Liz...WAY back in the day.  Hiedi and I were in YW together... and eventhough I knew my fiance in High School(Tom Pace- part of Christian's HS singing group)... we didn't meet again until I had a large fundraiser for Christian and Nie... Tom (my guy) came to support them.  
    I love this family, and I think Marcus is a lucky guy!!  Thanks for sharing that beautiful mind of yours.. You make me smile.

    Sincerely, packed with kindness,
    emily(johnson)heap
