A Break in Wedding Planning to . . .

RELAX, VACATION, and spend some quality time with my FI. Yes, I will be taking a 2 1/2 week wedding planning & dreaming, blog reading, phone call making, appointment keeping hiatus. Why? Well, FI is a hiking & camping whore. He loves it. Growing up, his family took a lot of camping trips and even took TWO road trips across the country.
Well, we are taking a road trip just FI and I on a National Park Tour. Our National Park Tour began (unexpectedly for me) with our engagement at Acadia National park, but we will continue it to Rocky Mountain

Grand Teton

Yellowstone National Park

Glacier (!!!)

Theodore Roosevelt

Mount Rushmore


It is going to take 2 1/2 weeks and we will be sleeping in tents the entire time! (Minus 5 nights of hotels and lodges). We will go hiking, horseback riding, out to dinner, rafting, canoeing/kayaking, boating, sightseeing and just enjoy each other's company by the fire at night. I can't wait but I am not a camper like him. This is a true test of our love and patience I think but at the same time, is going to be an AMAZING experience. These are the pictures from his last trip to Colorado when he was in high school. I cannot wait to see what beautiful pictures he takes on this trip!
Do you have any plans for trips pre-wedding? How do you relax and stop stressing/planning for the big day?


  1. Taking a trip before the wedding sounds awesome. I know wedding planning can be stressful. It shouldnt be, but sometimes it can be. The pictures are wonderful. I cant wait to see what pictures you come back with. :)

  2. Thanks Yvonne! I am sure I will have LOTS of stories to share as well as pictures when I get back!

  3. Great pictures! Your trip sounds like its going to be soooo awesome! Have fun!

  4. Sounds awesome! Unfortunately I don't have time for a big vacation before the wedding, but I'm making sure to take many little ones :)

    Take lots of pictures and make sure you share them when you come back!

  5. How exciting! Have a blast! Since getting engaged we've taken a couple of vacations (some planned before the engagement) where it was nice to get away from our hometown and not be surrounded by wedding blogs and magazines and my planning binder.

  6. Wow, I am so envious- this sounds like such an adventure and I want more photos!!
