These are two of the most wonderful friends any girl could ask for.

Hannah & Joe officially got engaged on August 22 and are planning to have a wedding next summer! I was asked to be a bridesmaid, so of course I had to say yes! Last weekend while we were in Wilmington, we decided to take Part I of the engagement photos. This weekend we'll have Part II (which we're in the process of planning and getting constantly inspired from Pinterest and other blogs! Ah!) They both wanted to capture the beach and the mountains in their photos. Hannah & Joe are originally from Wilmington, but attend Appalachian State with me in our small little mountain town called Boone.

Words can't express how happy and excited I am about Hannah & Joe embarking on their next journey. They both truly deserve every ounce of happiness and success life can offer them. Being friends with them has helped me grow as a person and truly understand what it means to have genuine friendships. I'm so glad I get to be a part of their journey :]

PS. Aren't they adorable?
Keep an eye out for Part II of their engagement photos.
This time we'll showcase the ring haha.
