Goin' to the Chapel...

This is my last scheduled post until I return from Oregon around the 8th of September. MY DAUGHTER IS GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God truly blessed me with Autumn. She is the perfect daughter, always carrying herself with grace and dignity. She has her father's blue eyes and intelligence, and my mother's gracious personality. I thought I couldn't be prouder when she graduated Cum Laude from college in 2004. Now, I find myself marveling at her life choices and achievements, feeling incredibly proud, and happier than I could've imagined. She simply excels at everything she does. Jason is a warm, loving person and has fit in beautifully with our family. It's a beautiful thing, man.

Hope you enjoy these engagement photos from the talented Haley Lovett. Location is Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens in Portland.














See you all in a few weeks with lots of Portland/wedding photos to share!

This set of engagement photos is charming and will make a wonderful keepsake album. I'm curious about the book...looks like the title is "Winnie." Winnie the Pooh? Your daughter looks so much like you.

Congrats! They look like a great couple, and I'm sure you're so proud! Such an exciting time. Not sure how long you'll be up here, and I know you'll be busy, but if you find yourself with some open time, and me a note at melleady@yahoo.com. Maybe we could get a cup of coffee or do a short photo walk or something.

I know you told me once where the wedding will be, but I've forgotten. I'll wait until you post the photos. (Isn't Crystal Springs the most beautiful place? Even in the rain last spring, I loved every minute of it...just as I had loved it last fall!)
