Wedding Showcase: Jordan + Jame's Engagement Shoot

Some of you may remember the 'Season of Love' post, I wrote a few months ago. This couple's engagement has made me most excited, because Jordan is my cousin! I just love weddings, especially when its a wedding of a dear loved one. I really am just counting down the days to the wedding along with the bride and groom.

James and Jordan met while studying at Santa Clara University Law School, which is pretty adorable, that they're both lawyers! It's funny though, because James and Jordan actually went to the UC Berkeley for their undergraduate program as well. However the two love birds didn't meet until they attended law school. In a few months I get to attend Jordan's Bridal Shower, it's a garden party themed shower, which is just about all the fun that a wedding blogger can have! Am I right? Pretty darn excited.

Congratulations to My Dear Cousin!

Now that the holiday season is almost over, its time to get back to the season of love (which is really, all year long). I am extremely excited to announce the engagement of my beautiful cousin Jordan Lui to her sweet boyfriend James Holden. They recently got engaged this past veteran's day, 11-11-11. Since then, I couldn't wait to hear how James popped the question during the family holiday festivities.

James had surprised Jordan with a romantic dinner at a downtown San Francisco Fairmont Hotel. Little did Jordan know that they had company when they went to their hotel suite. With the company of a cappella group (University of California Men's Octet) singing the Bruno Mars song "Just the Way You Are" James proposed to Jordan.

Pretty romantic if you ask me. Where's my box of tissues when I need it? Oh yeah, did I forget to mention that James had hired a photographer and videographer to document the special evening. So sweet.

Now it's time for Jordan and James to plan their wedding. I cannot wait! Congrats dear cousins!
