Call me old fashioned, but sometimes I miss the days where I could identify my friends by the handwriting on a card or even by the sound of their voice on the phone. Don't get me wrong, I love the convenience of text messaging and caller ID and have technology to thank for many of the friends I have made through blogging and other online platforms. But still, there is something to be said for the old fashioned note.

So when I meet people like Scott and Kelli, I'm a little envious. Their love didn't start with flirty texts or Facebook requests... it started on the last day of their junior year of high school over ten years ago. And when I asked what their favorite memory was of when they first started dating (something I ask all of my brides and grooms), they replied "Daily note passing in high school."

Sigh.

I can only imagine the treasure box that holds those early love letters and how fun it must be, on a lazy day or cozy evening, to pull out the box and read through them note by note. I only hope that in years to come when they do, there will be a photo from their wedding day shuffled in among them.

Scott and Kelli were married Saturday on a gorgeous day with a gorgeous view overlooking Phoenix provided by Different Pointe of View at Tapatio Cliffs Resort. I loved working with Emily of Your Heart's Desire Wedding Planning and the rest of the team of vendors listed at the end of this post. The day was seamless and it was so much fun to capture this portion of Scott & Kelli's story!
What a gorgeous bride Kelli made!
