I had so much fun at the beach for my bachlorette trip! First stop was Willa Jean in New Orleans for lunch, then we headed to Florida! While we were in the restaurant, our car got booted which was a minor set back haha. My girls threw me a little honeymoon shower the first night which was so sweet!
We did lots of lounging on the beach and Laura even got stung by a jellyfish…on the face! Haha we made a homemade remedy for her and it went away quickly. On our last day we took a trimaran sail boat out with Captin Kirk in Pensacola Bay! The water was pretty choppy which made for a wild and fun ride. We decided that we are going to do an annual girls trip! 🙂
We are getting married at Chautauqua Park here in beautiful Boulder, Colorado on Saturday, June 24th, 2017!!We are loving engaged life thus far and have had so much fun picking our wedding venue! Props to Tyler for the idea of doing it at Chautauqua. There’s a lot more planning to do but since we got our venue locked down, we wanted to make an announcement on here! Of course, formal save the dates will go out in the mail towards the end of this year. The ceremony will be outdoors on the Chautauqua green with a stunning view of the flatirons. The reception will follow in the Chautauqua dining hall right next to the green. It will be an indoor/outdoor reception with a tent, band, and buffet. When Tyler and I went to check out the venue, there was a wedding going on outside on the green and that seriously sold us!! Check out the pics below. We even walked to our appointment with the event coordinator because it’s only a few blocks from our house. So easy and yet so stunningly beautiful!! Chautauqua is at the base of the flatirons so it really couldn’t be anymore perfect and it’s also a national historic landmark with tons awesome hiking trails. It’s so us.

It’s surreal that Tyler and I are engaged!! I am writing this the morning after my 23rd birthday, the day after Tyler proposed to me. It was pure bliss waking up with my fiancé this morning. I am beyond thrilled that we are spending the rest of our lives together! Yesterday was the greatest day of my life thus far. The love jitters were uncontrollable haha!! We are both so grateful that we found the loves of our life and cannot wait to get married. Thank you so much to our wonderful family and friends for all their love and support. Apologies if we were not the best with our phones yesterday, we were trying to savor the moment and were overwhelmed with happiness!!
So the proposal story. The weather was looking to be a pretty rainy/stormy afternoon on my birthday so we decided to go on a morning mountain adventure in lieu of going camping. Tyler drove us up to Dream Canyon, which is just as dreamy as it sounds! We were hanging out and admiring the view at the overlook and all of a sudden Tyler said my name, Camille. He proceeded to get down on one knee and pulled out a wooden jewelry box. At this point, I knew what was happening and had a giant smile from ear to ear. He gave a little speech before opening the box and told me how he wanted to spend the rest of our lives together and that I am the love of his life. He opened the box and revealed a GORGEOUS diamond and sapphire ring. It was his family ring. That’s when he asked me to marry him. I immediately said yes and started kissing him. He then put the ring on my wedding ring finger (removing the promise ring he had given me–he sure kept his promise!!). This was by far the best and most memorable moment in my life. We stayed at dream canyon just hugging, kissing, loving on each other, talking, etc. for a while afterwards until we decided to head back to Boulder to share the news with my mom and grandmother (who are in Boulder this weekend) and all our other family members and friends. Our phones blew up like crazy and were dead in less than an hour after the news was shared!! We feel so loved by everyone and we are just so incredibly happy to be engaged. For those who have asked, we have literally no clue about any wedding details haha. Tyler graduates from CU in May 2017 so, it will definitely be next summer sometime because we met in the summer, it’s the best season, and we need time to plan everything! It’s also probably going to be in Colorado and I will definitely be wearing a flower crown.
For those who are interested, here is our story of how we meet and fell in love! Tyler and I met for the first time way back in the fall of 2012. That seems like yesterday to me but, in reality that was 4 years ago…wow. Anyways, I was a sophomore at CU Boulder and he was fresh off the greyhound bus from his hometown of Richmond, Virginia. I use the word fresh very sarcastically because he was quite the opposite in all his sexy, southern, home bum-esque appeal. Pretty sure all he had was a backpack to his name, and a small one at that. I have to give major credit to one of my best friends from college and roommate at the time, Alli, for allowing Tyler and his other 2 other traveling friends (whom I have a deep affection for now) in our home because to be honest, I was not exactly comfortable with them being there at first haha! Alli was dating one of Tyler’s best friends from home, Dan, who was also attending CU and lived one block away from us. Tyler and his friends were in between crashing at Dan’s place, camping, and crashing at our place. Tyler and I were obviously in different places in our life when we first met but, I knew from the instant meeting him that he was 1) an awesome, brave, and smart person and 2) that I wanted to be close friends with him (maybe even more than friends hehe). Tyler has since told me that he mentioned to Dan that he wanted to marry me before he even really knew me, which I find really adorable and romantic. But like I said, we were in very different places in life and it wasn’t until the following summer in early June of 2013 that we became romantically involved, although we remained good friends throughout that period of time. After about 2-3 weeks of ‘hanging out’ and hiking at the beginning of the summer, Tyler asked me to be his girlfriend which I happily said yes to! It immediately felt like the start of something incredibly, which it was. Ever since then, we have fallen more and more in love every single day of being together. We have been through so much together and we know that we want to be together forever . Our relationship is truly the most special thing and we love each other unconditionally. Fast forward to now, 2016, we live in a cute little duplex together that we have been dwelling in for about 2 and a half years now. I graduated from CU Boulder and have an ‘adult’ office job. Tyler is finishing up his degree in computer science at CU Boulder (he’s a genius just so you know). We have an adorable American Bulldog, Waldo, who makes many features on the blog/Instagram. He is our first child and is spoiled rotten! It’s funny because Waldo’s birthday (June 21) coincides with our anniversary. So this year Waldo will turn 3 years old and we will celebrate our 3rd anniversary! We don’t have an exact day as to when we started dating but, we know it was in mid to late June so we just stick with Waldo’s birthday so we both always remember haha. It’s like Waldo is our spirit love child lol. Okay, too far…haha. Now we are are engaged and are the happiest we have ever been!!
