This is Natalie.  Natalie is one of my favorites- smart, beautiful, and on the cusp of seriously rocking the world, college degree in hand.

Joy + Jonathan: Married! https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2017/3/joy-jonathan-married From the moment I entered the bridal suite until we all waved goodbye to the getaway car, Joy and Jonathan's wedding day absolutely melted my heart.  So many thoughtful family members and friends gave their talents, music, and other skills to pull off some incredibly meaningful DIY touches, and we adored the love that was poured on this beautiful couple all day long!  

Settle in for some seriously beautiful cuteness, you guys.

Hillman Family https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2017/3/hillman-family I love it when friends who became parents at the same time we did reach out for a photo shoot.  Chance and Parker were born within a few months of each other, and I can't look at this sweet kid without remembering what he looked like, curled up in a rainbow ring sling and snuggled up against his Mommy.  Now he's a big boy, and so full of love and laughs!  We had a great time down at the PB Pier!

Hannah and Mark: Married! https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2017/2/hannah-and-mark-married I peeked out my window the morning of Hannah and Mark's wedding and breathed a prayer of thanks when I saw the bright, happy sun coming above the mountains!  After a cloudy winter, we weren't so sure what to expect that day, but were thrilled that sunlight would be pouring in through the beautiful windows at the church where these two precious people would say their vows. 

Hannah and Mark have the kind of soul mate connection that runs deeply and peacefully, weaving them together tightly.  They look into each other's eyes and understand.  Mark took such sweet care of Hannah throughout their wedding day, making sure she could step carefully over the path to the reception, brushing a stray hair from her forehead, giving her a smile and gentle kiss, taking in the magnitude of the day together.  And it is easy to see that Hannah is crazy for him right back.

Their wedding day was full of beautiful, personal touches.  From the gorgeous engagement ring Mark had custom made (the center stone is Benito, which is also his first name), to Hannah's dress (her grandmother's), to the hand made details in their reception- everything was thoughtful and filled with meaning.

Baby Woods- 4 weeks new https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2017/1/baby-woods--4-weeks-new There is such an incredible intimacy and purity to the first weeks a newborn comes home with their family.  To be invited into this space and photograph it is one of the greatest privileges I treasure as a family photographer, and it's especially beautiful when it is for a friend.  This is baby Woodland, and let me tell you guys-  he is one lucky kid.  Not only are his mommy and daddy already nuts about him, but he was born into one of the most artistic, creative homes on the planet.  Daddy plays for bluegrass bands, strumming away on his many, many instruments, and mommy is an art teacher.  He will have no lack of beautiful things to look at and explore, and beautiful music to listen to as he grows up...

And he's going to grow up to be AWESOME.

Actually, he already it :)

Joy and Jonathan: Engaged! https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2017/1/joy-and-jonathan-engaged Joy and Jonathan were practically skipping up the path at Mission Trails Park when I met up with them for their engagement session.  After months apart- separated for work- their happiness at being together was palpable.  Immediately, I felt like the sun came out when I gave them a hug hello.  These guys radiate warmth and love for each other.

Part 1 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/11/justin-natalya-married-part-1 {Click here to jump to the ceremony video}

 

"In 2 more hours, I'll have a husband!"

Natalya was so excited when I walked into the bridal suite, the girls milling around in their adorable matching robes, the makeup artists working their magic with lashes and lipstick in the background.  Floating above it all in a serene cloud of excited calmness, Natalya smiled and hummed to herself as she arranged her jewelry and perfume, ready to slip into her gorgeous dress and walk towards Justin.

Justin is her college sweetheart.  Natalya is his first love.  Together, they're the type of couple that makes for a perfect romance- the kind you dream of having.  They care so much for each other, and it's obvious in the way they hold hands, smile into each other's eyes, and speak so certainly and tenderly of a future melded together.

Justin and Natalya had a dreamy wedding with a traditional ceremony at the historic Mission San Diego.  Natalya was both confirmed and celebrated her first communion at the mission, so it was the obvious choice for her wedding.  And what a beautiful backdrop it provided for the ceremony!

 

Bryan had the honor of videoing the wedding ceremony.  Here it is- we hope you enjoy it!

There is SO MUCH more to come tomorrow on the blog!  Check back for a peek at their gorgeous San Diego elegant casual reception at Bali Hai restaurant on Shelter Island!

VIDEO - Amir + Stephanie Engagement Story - Nov 4, 2016 Wedding Message https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/11/amir-stephanie-engagement-story---nov-4-2016-wedding-message I met with Amir months ago through my friends at Clove and Kin. Amir came to me asking to make a special video that he was going to show his fiancee the day of their wedding. Amir is one of the most sincere and sweetest guys you can meet so I was very excited about helping him put this together. On top of the romantic gesture of creating a surprise video for his bride, he was going to reveal that the engagement months ago was secretly photographed as well. 

Amir and Stephanie were married November 4, 2016 and the video was a smooth success. 

I love working with creative, sweet, and caring people. Many times, I'm blessed with the opportunity to play a part in someone else's master plan. This was a fun project for me and now that the wedding date has passed, I am privileged to share this with friends and family.

Rachel and Gavin: Married! https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/10/rachel-and-gavin-married Rachel has the incredible ability to find humor in just about anything.  She is laughter personified, and she draws people to her like a magnet wherever she goes.  Her smile dazzles, and she radiates love.

Gavin loves to laugh almost as much as Rachel loves to make people laugh.  His ready smile, his spirit of helpfulness, and his encyclopedic knowledge of history and random facts are the perfect complement for Rachel's personality.  

On the morning of their wedding, these two exuded calm and joy.  They were ready- ready to start their shared lives, ready to join up and tell the world that they are a family now, ready to make memories.

And because we have the best jobs in the world, we were there snapping away, capturing every moment!

Rachel and Gavin had a special first look at Lake Poway, then enjoyed a gorgeous wedding at Old Poway Park.  I love this venue- the old timey feel, the railroad tracks, the trees that filter golden sunlight juuuuuust perfectly!!!  Enjoy the photos of these two sweethearts and their perfect beginning.

Kevin & Robin- Married! {Video} https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/9/kevin-robin-married-video They could not have picked a more beautiful San Diego day to say their vows.  As Kevin and Robin promised to love and take care of each other for the rest of their lives, their friends and family were washed in the golden summer sunset.  Even more perfect than the light, however, was the way everyone was wrapped in love on this very intimate wedding day.  Kevin and Robin know how to love well, and are very much loved in return.  This day was a spectacular celebration- joyful, emotional, beautiful in every way.

Kevin and Robin, thank you so much for letting us come alongside you at your wedding.  We love you guys and are so excited to hear about your adventures as your family continues to grow!

Ashley & Joey: Married! Part 2 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/7/ashley-joey-married-part-2 Welcome back to Ashley and Joey's big day!  There were so many precious moments that it was hard to narrow them down for these blog posts, but I'm excited to share even more of my favorites!

 

After the ceremony, guests headed over to the perfectly set tables.  They were breathtaking!  Ashley's mom did everything from florals to tablescapes to favors, and the result was incredible.  Glam, fun, playful, classy- perfect.  And even better with such a pretty ocean view!

 

 

Ashley and Joey, thank you so much for letting us be by your side.  Marriage is the most awesome adventure, and it's already looking fantastic on the two of you!!!

Hugs,

Crystal

Ashley & Joey: Married! Part 1 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/7/ashley-joey-married-part-1 When I walked into the bridal suite to find Ashley as the San Diego sun shone perfectly on this clear, gorgeous summer day, I nearly ran right into a pack of adorable bridesmaids, busy finishing some final touches on the florals.  They were working magic on those flowers, and their spirits of joyful service were so perfectly in tune with Ashley and Joey themselves.  That's what we love about these two- they love to give.  They are both so concerned about their loved ones, so willing to invite people into their lives, that their loved ones can't help but reflect that right back!  When I turned the corner, there was my calm as a San Diego summer day bride, smiling as her curls were pinned back.  

Joy.  These guys just radiate it.

We absolutely love these guys, and love every inch of their bright, cheery, Kate Spade inspired, masterfully DIY'd wedding.  We know you'll love it, too!

 

 

 

So, so, so much more beauty ready to hit the blog tomorrow!  Stay tuned!

 

Hugs,

Crystal

DeBruyn Extended Family https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/5/debruyn-extended-family Every Thanksgiving and Easter, Bryan's mother's family gets together to celebrate the seasons and watch the little kids grow.  We get so much joy out of watching all the kids play with their cousins!  We made the trip this past Easter, and it was even MORE special because Bryan's Aunt Nellie asked me to take some family portraits while we were up there.  It was my pleasure!!!  I love these beautiful people.  

 

And seriously- didn't I marry into the BEST looking family???

Alli + Tyler: Married! Part 2 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/4/alli-tyler-married-part-2 After a beautiful outdoor ceremony, we all moved inside for Alli and Tyler's reception.  Talk about glam!  I loved the beach theme with sequined table runners- they looked like glistening sand!  And I've never seen such a PACKED dance floor- it was so much fun!

At the end of the evening, we headed outside to play in the rain.  We'd been praying for it to hold off all day, but man, am I glad we got to have some fun at the very end of the night!  

 

Alli and Tyler, you guys are so, so loved.  It was a privilege to get to be with you on your wedding day and watch your family and friends pour out their joy for you two.  You have a really special bond, and we're excited to see where life takes you!  

 

Hugs,

 

Crystal

Alli + Tyler: Married! Part 1 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/4/alli-tyler-married-part-1 As I moved silently- gathering details to photograph- between girls curling their hair, applying makeup, and laughing together, one bridesmaid quietly sidled up next to me with Alli's shoebox.  "Don't photograph the shoes just yet.  Tyler needs them."  He wanted to write a note on the bottom, to help her know how excited he was to be marrying her.  

I smiled and looked over at Alli with the sun streaming through the window, catching each curl around her face perfectly.  Today was going to be perfect, because Tyler was going to make sure it was perfect for the girl he loved.  After more than a decade of growing up beside his high school sweetheart, he knew how to make her heart swell with joy.  It didn't matter if the rain came as it threatened to, because rain or shine, Alli and Tyler would be getting their beautiful journey as a married couple off to a joyful start today.

Alli's Steve Madden's were the perfect bit of bling.  Understated but glitzy- they were just right to compliment her beautiful dress!

Alli wore the pearl necklace her grandfather had given her grandmother for their high school graduation in 1948.  She wore them for her wedding in 1952, then Alli's mother wore them on her wedding day in 1985.  

Tyler and Alli met in the courtyard for a quiet moment together.  I love a good first look!

Alli and Tyler know how to pick friends!  This bridal party was full of laughter and seriously up for anything- they made taking photos of them a total blast!

And OMG the ring bearer and flower girl!!!!!  How darling are they???

Flower girl with a bubble gun.  Watch out world!

To entice little Parker down the aisle, mom threw a green ball.  We all got a good laugh when he chucked the ring box in favor of the ball!

Allies grand entrance down the staircase was breathtaking.

Married!

There is so, so many more swoon worthy details coming!  Check in tomorrow for the amazing Part 2 of Alli and Tyler's big day!!!

Lucas Extended Family https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/3/lucas-extended-family It takes my breath away to watch how families grow and change.  There is nothing more special than getting moms, dads, siblings, grandparents, and little ones together to make memories.  To pause and take a step back from life and just appreciate the beautiful family that surrounds us.

I got to meet the Lucas family for a very special beach photo shoot last month.  They were all smiles and energy!  I hope you enjoy this sweet, beautiful family with 6 little kiddos under the age of 5!!!!!

Baby Lillian- Newborn https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/3/baby-lillian--newborn One year ago on Valentine's Day, we joked with Jana and Mark throughout their wedding about all the beautiful babies they'd have running around soon.  They wanted to be parents, and were so ready to start their journey together as a family.  None of us could have ever imagined how perfectly, miraculously timed the arrival of their first little love would be.  This year, Valentine's Day, on their first anniversary, sweet baby Lillian entered this world.  I mean, I just had goosebumps when I heard the news!!!  It took about .0000007 seconds for me to fall in love with this precious little Valentine when I got to meet her for our photo shoot.  

Those first few days with a new baby are so full of transition, emotion, uncertainty, exhaustion, love... I remember wondering how a body could contain it all. It is always such an honor to be invited into that intimate space with a brand new family.  Seeing Jana and Mark tenderly and proudly care for Lillian made my heart swell so much.  I know you're going to love the photos we captured of this sweet angel.

Jana, you may remember from her adorable Pinterest-worthy wedding, is the DIY queen.  Naturally, the nursery she prepared is adorable down to the last tiny detail.  It was the obvious choice for our setting, and all props and outfits used were taken from Lillian's closet and room- no photographer props needed :)

 

Jana and Mark, Lilly is just perfect.  Thank you so much for letting me in to such beautiful moments in your lives.  We can't wait to see what else God does through your family.

Hugs,

Crystal

Zipporah Joy- Newborn https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/2/zipporah-joy--newborn The first day with a brand new baby is unlike any other time in a couple's life.  Especially that first baby.  This tiny, fresh life enters the world and alters a family forever.  Every touch, little sound, soft snuggle... everything seems so immense, so intimate.  So special.

I got to welcome sweet baby Zipporah into the world with her mommy and daddy, and oh what a precious little thing she is.  

It's safe to say that mommy and daddy are smitten.

 

I had the opportunity to visit on her one week birthday to capture some special portraits for them.

 


 

Carina, Dave, and Zipporah- I love you all more than words can say.  Thank you for being in our lives!  We are so excited to see your family grow.

 

love love love,

 

Crystal

Dave & Carina- Maternity https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/2/dave-carina--maternity Remember my beautiful friend Carina's baby shower from last week?  Well, I thought it'd be fun to show off their adorable maternity session (the results of which we used to decorate the shower!).

We wanted to keep it sweet and simple, so Carina and Dave just decided to do photos in the neighborhood.  We met up on a gorgeous afternoon.  Perfect light, perfect couple, perfect baby bump.

 

Perfect.

 

This talented girl loves to watercolor, and she brought along an original creation for the baby's room for the shoot!

This next series is my favorite.  Dave and Carina have always been some of our favorite people to hang out with.  Their relationship is sweet, caring, and has such a comfortability.

Right????  I know.  Cute.

 

This much prayed for, hoped for, long loved little one was to make her debut very soon.  Next week... meet Baby Zipporah!

 

Hugs,

 

Crystal

Carina's Baby Shower https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/2/carinas-baby-shower A few months ago, I got to do something that I've been looking forward to for years- I got to throw my very dear friend, Carina, a baby shower for her first little nugget!  I have been planning and scheming ever since she told me she was ready to be a mom, and I immediately called dibs on the shower!

I went with a "Cute as a Button" theme and kept it really simple and clean.  I wanted to be able to maximize the space in our home for guests to spread out, and also wanted to pack up the decorations to send with Carina for her to save for future parties or the nursery.

We did an engagement session, and I used the photos allllll over the place!  People loved seeing them!  And even better, Carina and Dave wore the nursery colors for their shoot, so everything I added for the party stayed in that color scheme.  

One Costco bouquet of white flowers and one bunch of green fillers stretched into about 10 mini arrangements that I scattered around the house.  I made favors from chocolate melts that I pressed holes into as "buttons."

 

 

 

The  chocolates made an adorable cake topper, too!  I had fun collecting pretty painted wooden buttons to scatter around the tables.  My favorites were those beautiful butterfly buttons.  Carina loved them, too!

Some 5x7 photos were a perfect size for the clothes line display.  I attached them with some clothespins decorated with little strips of paper and printed fabric.  The pom poms were another fun project- but be warned- that's a lot of fluffing!

I painted the "BABY" sign from some wooden letters I purchased at a craft store.

I left games up to my friend Jana, and she did a cute job.  We played 2 group games, and she brought supplies for onesie decorating- little onesies labeled by size and design ideas for each month of the first year.

Our beautiful mama to be!

We also set up a scrapbooking table to help Carina get a jump on the baby book!

 

My goodness, it was just too much fun!!!  Quick!  Somebody get pregnant so I can do it all over again!  :)

 

Hugs,

 

Crystal

Justin + Natalya: Engaged {San Diego State University} https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/1/justin-natalya-engaged So it all started in a bowling ally.  Somewhere in the dim lighting, the thunder of voices, and the crash of pins, a boy and a girl caught each other's gaze, and a spark was ignited.  A sweet attraction turned into excuses to bump into each other on campus at SDSU, which turned into many dates, which became a sweet friendship, and finally, a deep romance.

Justin and Natalya are the kind of couple you want to  hang out with.  They are so deeply comfortable with themselves and each other, and you can't help but fall in love with them.  They play off each other so well- sharing sweet glances, finishing each other's thoughts- and I can see a long, happy road stretching far ahead of them.  They are perfect travel companions for this amazing journey called marriage.  :)

Justin and Natalya wanted to take their engagement photos where it all began- on SDSU's campus.  I absolutely loved my time with them.  Here are some favorites!

 

 

Justin and Natalya, thank you so much for inviting me to play a part in your beautiful love story.  I can't wait to party with you when you say "I do!"  

Hugs,

Crystal

Our Story: Part 2 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/1/our-story-part-2 This is the second installment of our love story.  Click HERE to read part one.

 

I was walking back to my dorm late on a Sunday night, feeling like a million freaking bucks.  I had just performed with my all girl vocal jazz group, and was reveling in the post performance high.  Plus, I looked super cute.  My hair was curly, my makeup was perfect, and my brand new hot pink sweetheart neck shirt hugged me in all the right places.  I couldn’t help the little sashay that happened when I felt my skirt swish around my knees. 

 

I rounded the corner to my building and walked across the parking lot.  I heard a car pull in to the driveway just behind me…. And someone catcalled me.

 

Catcalled me.

 

My first thought was, “What the…,” but I understood the second I turned around and saw John hanging out of the passenger side window of a car.

 

The Thursday before, we had just had a super SUPER awkward… uh, date, I think?  I don’t play games.  I’m a grab-the-bull-by-the-horns kind of girl, and I was kind of tired of him popping up all over to ask me to do things with him alone, but never actually revealing intentions.  So when he asked me to sit with him at a baseball game, I did.  Then turned and said, “So I need to go to the mall.  Why don’t you come with me, and we can have dinner after.  What do you say?  Make it a date?”  I’m pretty sure he turned a color of red I’d never seen on a human, and he agreed.  I could tell it caught him off guard.  He showed up looking really nice, we make extremely halting conversation on the bus to the mall, we matter of factly bought our items, and we shared a pekking duck pizza at California Pizza Kitchen.  Followed by another bus ride of halting conversation back to campus.  It was pretty apparent for both of us that it was not a good fit, so I figured that was that….

 

And then he catcalled me.

 

But hey, I felt cute, and it’s nice to be appreciated once in awhile, so I skipped over to say hi. 

 

“How’s it going?”  I asked.

 

“Great!  Just getting back from church.  You remember Bryan right?”

 

Then, I saw that adorable smile pop out from behind John’s head.  “Hey,” said Bryan shyly.

 

After that, poor John was all but forgotten as I was completely focused on Bryan. We talked for a bit, and I explained that I was just coming home from a concert.  I asked him what he had coming up that week.  Bryan mentioned that he had to go to an art gallery for a class.

 

“Oh!  I LOVE art!” I said with the flirtiest smile I could conjure.

 

“Oh… well, why don’t you come with me?”  Good man, he got the hint.  I did an inner fist pump.

 

We exchanged numbers, and I waved as they pulled out.  I’d  been out with a few guys at Loma, but this felt so different.  Friday was just not coming fast enough!

Schmelzenbach Family Portraits https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/1/schmalenbach-family-portraits One of the coolest things about growing up is getting to see how our friends grow and change with the seasons of their lives.  Lately, the most common season change is the journey into parenthood for many of our loved ones.  Elizabeth and Paul are friends from college/ church that we've known since our dating days, and they took the plunge into parenthood about a year ahead of us.  Seeing people we love love on their kids is really the best!  And watching them love their kids has been such a joy!

 

We met up for family portraits at Mission Trails Park, and had the peeerrrrrfect sunset as our backdrop.  I'm a firm believer that family portraits should reflect YOUR family exactly as you are!  And I really feel like we totally nailed it.  Bright colors, little boys who love to laugh and play with sticks, and a mom and dad who are happy to joke and go along with the antics of their little boys.... that's these wonderful people in a nutshell!

 

 

This is one of my favorites from the day!  I love that as soon as Daddy picked him up, we got an ear to ear grin :)

Two kids down, and these college sweethearts have still got it!  <3

 

Elizabeth and Paul- thank you so much for letting us play with your sweet family!  We have loved watching you grow and totally rock this parenthood thing.  We are excited to see the adventures you get to experience with your kiddos!!!

 

hugs,

 

Crystal

Lucas Family Portraits https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2016/1/lucas-family-portraits This is an extra special post, because this family is extra special to us!  We had our babies very close together, and Codi and Parker are best buddies at preschool.  It has been so much fun becoming grownups together, and I love how these photos capture the sweetness of our dear friends!

 

They decided this year that they wanted to capture their home in the portraits- and I LOVE the result!  It was great for the little guy, keeping him in his familiar setting, and SUCH a great way to document where they are as a family right now.

WARNING- the following photo will make you explode from cuteness overload

They live near a beautiful nature path, so after a quick outfit change, we headed outdoors!

 

Kendall, Calen, and Codi- you guys are so special to us!  We love you and love watching your family grow!

 

hugs,

Pridmore Christmas 2015 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2015/12/pridmore-christmas-2015 2015 was a big year for us- one full of adventure, growth, and change.  We love reflecting back on all that the year has brought us and sharing it with our family and friends.  This year, instead of the more traditional Christmas letter that we usually write, I decided to try making an infographic style letter.  I was really happy with the outcome!

 

 

We had a beautiful Christmas - multiple celebrations with both families stretched over a couple of weeks, in fact!  This year, instead of buying everyone on Bryan's side gifts, we took them up to the snow for two days.  It was picture perfect!  We had so much fun playing in the snow, drinking hot cocoa, and playing board games inside by the fire!

 

Everywhere we looked, we felt like we had just stepped into a Christmas Card!  

Our little ones have only seen snow once before, so this was very exciting for them!

Bryan's Dad is a very hands on kind of "Papa" and we love it!  He took both of them down the hill in the sled!

My handsome mountain man :)

I'm still totally nuts for this guy.

 

I hope that you enjoyed family and friends this season as much as we did!  We're excited about everything that 2015 brought, and can't wait to see what next year holds!  

 

hugs,

 

Crystal

Daniela & Carolina: Married! Part 2 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2015/10/daniela-carolina-married-part-2 The party kept going long after the sun went down!  Daniela & Carolina's reception was not just beautiful- it was fun!  These guests knew how to party and weren't afraid to pack the dance floor!

 

 

One of my favorite parts of the day was seeing the flower girls react to Mickey and Minnie bursting in to the reception!

Everyone got a chance to take some photos with them!

After saying goodbye to the special guests, I took the newlyweds off for some fireworks shots!

 

Then it was back to the dance floor for these two...

 

Daniela & Carolina- thank you so much for letting us be with you on such an incredibly precious day!  We love you guys, and we're cheering for you as you officially start your journey as a family.

 

Hugs,

Part 1 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2015/10/daniela-carolina-married-part-1 The day was perfect- bright and sunny, hardly a cloud in the sky, and magic was in the air.  We stepped into Daniela & Carolina's suite at the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa in Anaheim to a flurry of dress clothes, jewelry, hairspray, and laughter.  Everyone was so excited to celebrate these two special people- the love surrounding them was palpable.  We had so much fun photographing these two and their sweet friends and family members!  Here are some of our favorite highlights.

 

           

 

Many more beautiful photos to come tomorrow!  And we had a special surprise appearance at the reception by a certain special couple of mice!

Pridmore Adventures! Volume 4: Paris https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2015/10/pridmore-adventures-volume-4-paris After two amazing days in London, we hopped aboard the Chunnel and zipped straight to Paris!  Once again, we had amazing luck with a wonderful Air BnB listing and ended up in a cute apartment in Bastille.  Our host recommended a cafe down the street, so we immediately headed that way for dinner.

 

It did not disappoint.

 

Our bellies full, we grabbed our gear and started out towards- what else?- the Eiffel Tower.

 

Our friend Allie had given us directions to the tower, and we wanted to see it all lit up at night.

I knew it would be beautiful, but I really did not expect it to be this amazing!  What an incredible piece of architecture.  We enjoyed a romantic moment, and let it sink in that we were in PARIS by the FREAKING EIFFEL TOWER!!!

 

  

Romance quickly vanished once the heavens opened.  We were caught in rain like we've never seen before.

 

What can I say?  We're Californians.

We ran, laughing and squeezing the water out of our hair and clothes, back to the train and got back to the apartment.  The next day was a perfect, sunny day to explore the city!

 

Oh, Paris.  How I wish we had more time to spend with you!  But, alas, after two magical evenings, we bid you adieu and hopped a flight for ... VENICE!  Part 5 coming soon!

Pridmore Adventures! Volume 3: London Day 2 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2015/10/pridmore-adventures-volume-3-london-day-2 The next day, we slept in a bit and met up with Ryan and Ali at Green Park.  Bryan pulled out some devotionals before we got started with our sight seeing for the day.

Then headed off to another bucket list item- Buckingham Palace.

Then Hyde Park.  

All that walking around kept our appetites hearty, so we went to another favorite tea place of theirs for a proper cream tea.

This notice.  So polite.

We decided to spend some time going through the Victoria & Albert museum.

It was enormous.  And everything in it was spectacular.

Trying on some authentic fashion of the era!

This room was my favorite.  They had the original Raphaels that the tapestries in the Sistine Chapel were made from.

 


We decided to end our day with a "Proper" hamburger!

 

Then all of a sudden, it was time to crash one more night in our cosy guest house, then pack up for Paris!

 

We loved London.  And truly wish we had more time to spend wandering around it all, but were so grateful for everything we got to see in our two days there!  Next up, some favorite Paris pics!

Pridmore Adventures! Volume 2: London Day 1 https://www.pridmoria.com/blog/2015/9/pridmore-adventures-volume-2-london After our brief 24 hour trip to NYC, we hopped on a red eye and officially crossed the pond to London, England.  Exhausted but excited, we landed and started to navigate London public transit.

 

 

Neither of us had ever tried to get around a city in another country before, so we thought London was a good place to start... you know since they speak English there and all.  I'm glad we decided to ease ourselves into it because it was harder to get around than we anticipated.  Even though everything is in the same language, our ears had trouble accepting the different accent at first.  We had our smart phones with us to help get around, but the street names are all so different that we felt like they wouldn't stick in our brains for any helpful length of time!  We were grateful that public transit was all very clean and punctual, and we eventually adjusted and found our way to our stay in Brixton.

  First ride on a double decker bus!

This is the adorable guest house we stayed in.  We loved it!

By the time we found our way to our room and dropped off our stuff, it was close to dinner time.  We decided to head down to the water and make the London Eye our introduction to the city.

 

Big Ben was just as pretty as we hoped he would be :)

We grabbed some fish and chips for dinner... as if there were any other options!

We loved the Eye.  What a cool way to see everything for the first time.

Once we finished up on the Eye, we walked around and just took it all in.  

 

The next morning, our friends Ryan and Ali met up with us.  We were thrilled to get to see them!  They moved to London 2 years ago, and were on a mission to show us their new city.  The suggested an awesome tea house for breakfast!

This right here?  This is why we are friends :)

Once our bellies were full, we were ready to explore!  

Ali loves the Parliament building, so that was our first stop.  

Westminister Abbey was on my bucket list.  After seeing the broadcast of the royal wedding, I expected it to be massive.  It's actually pretty small inside.  We attended a service.

Gotta love the street musicians adding ambiance to our experience!

 

I loved this monument!

Checking out the House Guards Parade.

And Trafalgar Square.

We went inside the National Portrait Gallery- totally loved all the free museums!

Victoria and Albert- love it!

Obligatory phone booth pic.

For lunch, we stopped in a centuries old pub that had been a favorite of Charles Dickens when he haunted the streets of London.

Sustenance!!!

They took us downtown to show us Borough Market, which is just under this building- affectionately called "The Shard."

Ali had to show us her favorite cheese shop!

Another bucket list item was seeing a play at the Old Globe.  We got to experience being groundlings!
