USA Road Trip Part One - Denver to Seattle

Oooops, we just realised we skipped the first part of our road-trip - the epic 2-day drive from Denver to Seattle :) There was a lot of driving. Winding through true cowboy country as we made our way through Wyoming and Montana.

We stayed over in in Bozeman, Montana where Otto ate the 'best burger ever' apparently. You'd expect that kind of statement from a place with Steer trophies all over the walls.
And then for breakfast and 'the worst coffee ever' when we stopped in a tiny town called Rainier, surrounded by forests and mountains. It was beautiful.

And then there was more driving...
Hours on the road passing mountains, forest, more mountains, epic clouds, wind turbines and more forests.


USA Road Trip Part One - Seattle - Portland #2

So here is #2 of Seattle to Portland.
Yes, that's a wall full of bubblegum.
And yes, that is a thrift-heaven.
And yes! that's a REAL photobooth!


USA Road Trip Part One - Seattle to Portland

Hello friends!

As we write this post, we are sitting in Denver, CO, on the porch with our dear friends, Otto and Lindsay, enjoying the summer heat, sipping ice water and cold beer, and doing absolutely nothing. In other words we are having motherflipping good time. We've had a few too many good locally-brewed beers, gained a few kilos from a little too much over-indulgence and all in all had a killer four-week holiday/honeymoon. In a few days we will be boarding the plane again for a 27 hour trip back to our sweet-sweet home in Cape Town. But right now, we don't want to think of that.

We've finally had a chance to sift through all the images from our 14-day road-trip along the West Coast and through almost 5 States. We're having an awesome honeymoon, as those of you following us on Twitter and Instagram already know :) It's definitely been worth the wait. We thought we'd share a few of our favourite pictures in our favourite cities and of our favourite moments. They are random moments and we've only selected our few favourites :) These pictures don't even come close to summing up the entire trip, for that we'd end up working too hard, having to edit them all and we're still on holiday so no thanks. Plus, sometimes we just didn't feel like picking up a camera, but instead just soaking it all up with our eyes and hearts.

We have been truly blessed to be able to have done this trip and we thank our awesome friends, Otto and Lindsay, for borrowing us their car for 14 days and sacrificing their AC and for putting up with us in their home for two weeks. weloveyouguyssomuch x We also want to thank my sister, Silke, for house- and dog-sitting while we're away, she's a rockstar, and we all know that our dogs are spoiled girls. Danke Bebi x And lastly we want to thank our awesome sweet-sweet Jesus, for without him this trip would never have been possible and all the places we'd visited are awesome because of Him.

Enough blah-blahing - let's get into Seattle and Portland!

We spent a weekend in Seattle, where Travis and Otto covered a wedding together - check it out here. I spent the weekend happily running from one hipster shop to another and spending a little too much money. On the last day we went street shooting in Pike Place Market, Seattle. Home of the first Starbucks and the famous fish-tossing-fish-mongers. Then Otto flew back home to Denver to his wife and their beautiful daughter, and we started our roadtrip down the West Coast towards San Francisco. First Stop, Portland, Oregon. The home of our favourite Author, Donald Miller. We almost tweeted him to beg him to have a cup of coffee with us, but then we worried it might be a little stalkerish. So we ended up enjoying the city, it's massive micro-brewery culture and it's awesome, humbling nature surrounds- waterfalls and Mt Hood- instead. Yep, this was the first time I got to see snow. And yes, I'm wearing sandals, but Portland was really hot when we left for this adventure!

We'll try to post a few pictures of each significant part of our trip in the next few days and sum up as best we can the immensity of the fun we had. Or maybe you should just come visit us in our Studio in Cape Town and hear about our adventures - we're a lot funnier in person.

pssssttt... be sure to check back for a Sneak Peek of Scott & Andrea's wedding in Toronto, Canada. Coming soon-soon!


Made In the USA

It's 2 am in a The Day's Inn Motel in Santa Rosa, California, 1 week into our road trip and nearly 3 weeks since we left home and this is the very first moment we have had to blog an update for you all.

Truth is, it's too late in the evening for writing something coherent enough with the right mix of big words and adjectives to describe our adventure so far. We've spent a lot of hours on the road in the past few days and we're having a blast but we're just tired after it all. We're in San Francisco till Sunday and so very little driving till then. We'll have to try again tomorrow. :)

chat soon


Louis & Nadine's Garden Wedding

Oh wowzers! If ever there has ever been a wedding-post that was INSANELY overdue, it would have to unfortunately be this one... and these guys are some of our favorite people! (friends, we're so sorry you had to wait this long. we suck)

Meet our awesome friends Louis and Nadine!
Nadine is a rock-star. A little less the a year ago, she single-handedly co-ordinated our wedding. After a hugely underestimated and massively failed attempt to DIY the whole thing on our own, Travis and I realized we needed the super powers of our insanely talented friend Nadine, and she jumped in short-notice and made sure our wedding ran smoothly. It's thanks to her that our day turned out the way it did :)
A few months later (and much to our anticipation) Louis (yep, the Louis Minnar) finally popped the question, and so with huge smiles and delight we could finally return the favour - and shoot their wedding! Yay!

Louis and Nadine got married in our hometown, Pretoria, in the lovely leafy area of Brooklyn, in their parents beautiful & lush back garden. We knew this one would be a killer, with Nadine's sweet style and Louis multi-talented skills, it turned out to be one of our favorite weddings ever. Psssst... we're allowed to be biased. Loads of good friends, endless giggles and huge laughs, beautiful food (!!!) and a little too much wine, means Louis & Nadine receive our '2011 sweetest wedding award' :)

Louis and Nadine, thank you SO much for a beautiful wedding, for your awesome love and above all His love, and for all you have done for us and mean to us. weloveyou.
