We’ve all been there. It’s Wednesday, the middle of the week. Most of us are scrounging around to muster what little energy we have as we stare down the back side of our week. Most would drive home half awake, microwave a dinner, and plop down to let reality TV take care of the rest.
This Wednesday, however, we had what we’d probably call…the ANTI-WEDNESDAY! From the moment we showed up, we were met with the smiles, joy, and contagious laughter of Malori and her kind-hearted fiance Naji. And throughout our awesome time roaming around a sweet park in South Orange County, I think it’s safe to say these two have secured our “Troopers of the Year” award. Nature was EVERYWHERE, and I don’t mean the ‘aww look at the cute deer’ type of nature. But amidst the flies, rabbits, stink beetles, and huge bobcat (yes, bobcat), we could tell that nothing was going to keep these two from one another’s arms. After about two seconds, we knew Malori’s safe place was in the strong arms of Naji. And based on the huge smile on his face every time he held her, I don’t think he minded a bit :)
We seriously had the best time with these two, talking, laughing, and exploring as we found some absolutely gorgeous trees with sunlight streaking through; as if in a desperate attempt to win back our hearts, mother nature herself was trying to make up for all we’d endured!
One look at these two and you’ll know that there could be a monsoon around them, and their smiles would never change.
We absolutely cannot wait for their wedding at the Black Gold Golf Club in Yorba Linda, and know that if they are like this on their engagement…can you imagine the wedding?! So excited for these two!
Erin and I had to “paper, scissor, rock” in order to narrow down our favorites. But here are a few from our time with Malori and Naji. Enjoy!
