Decaf Chai with One Splenda

POSTED IN : Casa de Youngren

If Jeff wakes up before I do in the mornings, I wake up to the sound of water boiling in our teakettle downstairs. It’s not for Jeff’s French press. It’s for my cup of tea, which will be waiting for me on the kitchen counter in my favorite mug from World Market.

And if I wake up before he does. I’ll shower, get dressed, do my makeup, and work until he stumbles into the office, pajama-clad and hair askew with Gracie stumbling behind him yowling and blinking her sleepy eyes. I’ll stand up, walk him downstairs and start making him a plate of eggs, beans, and salsa.

The empty mug with my favorite tea means the world to me. My presence as we make breakfast together means the world to him.

And the longer we’re married, the more these little unspoken moments become our language. The one that only we can understand.

Welcome! We’re Jeff & Erin.

It’s our job to help you slow down and experience every moment of your wedding day – because we believe that it should be savored from top to bottom.

We’re Jeff & Erin Youngren, a hubby & wifey wedding photography team that believes timeless trumps trendy, life is best done together, and tears, hugs, & high fives should never be held back.

We consider our couples part of our family – and we cannot wait to meet you!
