a pint of cardiff, a swig of swami’s, a pitcher of encinitas, and one drunk guy

kimberly and cory’s engagement session was going to be ALL business, so we planned to meet at the office in cardiff.
following are the minutes from our meeting.

first item on the agenda… sexy business.

next, we opened it up to a round table discussion.

things became heated when kimberly and cory began biting at each other.

common ground was reached and we got down to a little fun business…

which led back to some more sexy business. seeing a pattern here? :)

in the middle of our meeting cory pulled kimberly aside for a private conference. whatever he said was met with great enthusiasm and…

a binding arrangement between the two was made.

as with nearly every business meeting there is always someone that feels left out. someone who just wants their voice to be heard. in this attendee’s case, he just wanted us to see the wet spot on his shirt that came from an undisclosed liquidy source of wetness. don’t ask, don’t tell bro :)

sidebar, i wish this blog had smell-o-vision. i hope this dude made it home safely. his walking skills at the time looked questionable at best.

but, uh, back to the session at hand. perfection is perfected, so i’m ‘a let ’em understand.

our minutes come to a close
with a shot of kimberly and cory’s toes,
the sun setting in the west
our time spent, the best.

thank you kimberly and cory for sharing some of your favorite san diego spots with us. one of our favorite things about going to places that mean something to our couples is the chance to see where our couples met, fell in love, and spent so many fun days together. the local flavor is always a sweet added bonus too :) we love that stuff! seriously.
can’t wait for your wedding at the inn at rancho santa fe in san diego!


These are fabulous, love the one of her pulling his face in for a kiss…absolutely beautiful!!!

Whatever that red thing was, it was beautiful…it seems they could not keep their hands off one another…

Love them! But especially the cuddly ones and the red tunnel one! Booyah!

One word comes to mind looking at this couple…FUN! I have so many favorites but I do like those last one as the sun sets. WOW.
