This weeks blog post is pretty near and dear to my heart. My step son Jace has asked my very dear friend Kylie to marry her. The wedding is set for September 19th In Pensacola Florida where they both grew up. I’ve know both these amazing hipsters since before I married my own husband TJ, Jace’s dad.
Let’s rewind 10 years before Kylie was 21 and as Jace was just moving to Las Vegas. Even back then I knew these 2 had an electric relationship with honor, trust and complete and utter love for each other. These two have been together longer as boyfriend and girlfriend than many marriages last- now that says something right there. They’ve withstood 3000 miles distance, job changes, moves and of course the everyday things that happen in life. All the while staying very committed to each other with a love that is so recognizable that anyone could see.
For years my husband and I wondered if they would “ever get married”. Even when asked Jace and Kylie would say- were great just the way we are and it’s true they were perfect just as they were. Throughout the years together they’ve built a home, raised 3 of the cutest pitbulls you’ll ever meet and supported each other careers and nurtured each other to the fine young adults they are today. Jace describes themselves as “modern hippies”.
Jace own’s more VW’s than I can count and recently Kylie is on the VW kick with the purchase of her new car. On any given day you’ll find these 2 soaking up everything las Vegas has to offer on the music and art scene with a craft beer of choice or an Old Style in their hand. They love to be down town and never miss a First Friday. I can honestly say I’ve never met anyone, much less 2 people that soak up so much of life and live it to the fullest each and every day.
Well now the day has finally come this very commitment couple decided to take it to the next step. Marriage… I’m delighted to share with you the images from their engagement session with Taylored Memories Photo taken right here in Downtown Las Vegas in the Arts District and the Arts Factory. The love and joy they share jumps out in these photos.
Congratulations to my son Jace and so excited to call my dear friend Kylie daughter. You both have made a great choice and we are all looking forward to witnessing the I do’s… yes I’m crying even writing this.
