Kirby + Steven | Christmas Cookie and Music Lifestyle Engagement

You could see the twinkling lights through the windows as you pulled in the driveway. As you walk in the door you are greeted by hugs from Kirby and Steven and the sounds of excited dogs and three kitties running to say hello, their claws clacking against the hardwood floors. Their house feels like home the second you walk in and I so love that. 

When I asked Kirby what kind of engagement session she wanted she knew right away that she wanted a Christmas at home type of feel. Of course, as I’m writing this it’s a warm June evening and I realize how behind I am on my blogging. I’ll get better, I promise. Maybe. Either way, I’m excited to share about my dear friend Kirby and her incredible soon to be husband, Steven.

We had met at Applebee’s weeks earlier so that I could officially meet Steven. We must have sat there for hours just talking and laughing. It didn’t take long for me to see how perfect Kirby and Steven are for one another. They balance each other out, they pick on each other just the right amount and they care so deeply about one another and I’m certain that anyone who knows them would agree with me on that. I’ve known Kirby for many years. In fact I remember having conversations with Kirby back in high school about boys we thought were cute. Nowadays our conversations (well, when we haven’t been talking about the wedding!) have been centered around what it’s like to own our own businesses and the things we have overcome to get us to where we are today. She has become one of my very favorite people and I am just thrilled that she has found the man of her dreams in Steven! I know that when she walks down that aisle in just a matter of hours she will be walking towards someone who will love her for everything that she is and together they will build a life full of music, pets, color, tons of sarcastic jokes and best of all, love.

In a way the love that they share is kind of like that warm, cozy home of theirs. Inviting. Cheerfully lit and shining so bright you can see it from the outside looking in. Love radiates from these two and envelopes everyone around them and leaves your heart feeling so full, like a beautiful Christmas morning. That’s the kind of love people spend their wholes lives searching for and these two.. these two amazing and deserving people have found it. My heart could not be happier for them and I CANNOT WAIT for their wedding tomorrow. 

Congratulations Steven and Kirby, I’ll see you soon!

-Alison
