Kim and Blair ‘s Love Story
We first met Kim at a wedding of our past bride and groom, Jen and Travis at Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort. Now you may wonder how we could remember her from all the other guests that were present that night. Easy… she caught the bouquet! She later saw us with Jen again when they attended the Bridal Fashion Debut at the Phoenix Convention Center. Later, it was funny the day she called our studio, I had just finished enhancing the bouquet garter portion of her friend Jen’s album. We love it when we photograph friends of past couples because we get to see them again and again
We are excited to shoot Kim and Blair’s wedding tomorrow at La Casa de Christo Lutheran Church with reception following at Ancala Country Club. We know there’s a chance of rain but then again, that means there’s a chance of rainbows too:-)~ Lilet
Here is their story in Kim’s words…
How we Met…
Blair and I met when we were in college at NAU – Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. We both were in Athletics, he played football and I played soccer. During Blair’s freshmen year, my sophomore year, we both had 8:00am English class together. At this point we hadn’t carried a conversation; we had seen each other in the dome crossing paths to and from practice or in the training room. At the end of the soccer season (we lost in the conference tournament) we had an end of the season party (I was on crutches) at our friend’s house and Blair came. We started talking at the party because we had a class together.
The next weekend I was driving down to Phoenix and I gave Blair a ride. We became great friends. About seven months later we started to develop feeling for each other and now are here 7.5 years later….
How he proposed…
Blair had arranged a weekend getaway for us to Flagstaff with his mom and stepdad Gene. We stayed at this little bed and breakfast that Cathy would always stay at when she would come in town. We went to lunch in downtown flagstaff and then headed to campus so that I could check out the new soccer facility that was under renovation. We then proceeded to wander around campus and went to this fountain/stream that had been added to central campus. At this point we had ventured away from Cathy and Gene and it was just to the two of us. Blair then hugged me and swung me around and got on one knee, and asked me to be his wife! Little did I know Cathy and Gene were hiding behind a car in the distance taking pictures of every moment.
Originally Blair had planned to do this in front of the English building but when he and Gene went to do the site visit earlier that morning they had discovered the English building was in the process of being renovated and had a chain link fence all the way around it.
We continued to walk around campus and took pictures, we then returned to the bed and breakfast to discover roses on our bed and a bottle of champagne. We had some champagne and got ready for dinner and went to an amazing dinner!~Kim
