About six months ago I had entitled one of my posts “The Perks of Being Married to a Photographer“, and I feel like today’s post should just be a repeat; or maybe I should just call it “The Perks of Being Married to a Perkes”, and not just any ‘Perkes’…. NATE Perkes. He has, yet again, let me accompany him on another adventure across the globe, this time to ARUBA!!
On the trip mentioned above to Costa Rica, I had the opportunity to meet one of the most ADORABLE and vivacious, successful, energetic, happy, enthusiastic and spunky girls that I have ever met. We got to know each other on a hike that consisted of like… 2,000 stairs and 95% humidity through a rabid monkey infested rain forest. You can really get to know a person in those conditions.
Anyways, Nicole and I have kept in touch over the months, and I plan on keeping her ‘close’ forever. On her flight down to Costa Rica, her then boyfriend NOW husband Faruk, proposed to her 30,000 feet in the air. Nate shot their Engagements while on the beach in Costa Rica and they decided to have him do their Wedding as well… in ARUBA, and that’s why we came.
You know, words can’t describe what it was really like and I exhaust myself trying to come up with some way to do it. So instead we’ve put together a video that hopefully can help depict our travels better than my fumbling poetic attempts to do the trip justice.
At first I questioned Nate’s song choice for this video, but after I heard the line “Home is WHEREVER I’m with you” I decided that it was simply perfect.
