Looking for a unique destination for your engagement photos?

The Globetrotting Groom and I are back Arizona and I’ll be posting several entries about our fun-filled trip. Aside from the amazing destination wedding locations in Sedona (stay tuned…), I uncovered a really fun spot for engagement photos in Phoenix.

If you’re thinking about a destination engagement shoot with a Southwest flavor, you’ll want to check out the Desert Botanical Garden. Now through May 31, they’ve got a really cool and colorful Dale Chihuly: The Nature of Glass exhibit going on. Aside from the amazing desert backdrop (hello skyscraper cactus!), how cool are these ginormous glass sculptures?






I’m leaving on a jet plane. Are you?

I’ll be heading over to Sedona, Arizona next week so be sure to stay tuned for my destination wedding and honeymoon report. I think those Red Rocks would be an amazing wedding backdrop! If there are any spots you want me to check out, just let me know.

Here’s a little secret, I’ve yet to find the suitcase of my dreams! My current favorite is showing some big signs of wear and tear but I think it will survive a few last trips.

Here are some of my luggage contenders in case you’re looking for a brand new bag. And, this luggage store offers free shipping on orders over $100.

Tumi T-Tech Adventure Large Wheeled Duffel – The Globetrotting Groom is a big Tumi fan and I love anything blue. I think this could squish under my bed for storage.


This Zero Halliburton Z-Flex piece looks pretty indestructible and I love that it expands (always a welcome feature for shopaholics).


Last but not least, the Delsey Helium Hyperlite bag. This one is also expandable and at just 9 pounds, I can stuff it with 41 pounds of clothes!

If you’re registering, think about adding some designer luggage to your list. I think it makes a great gift.
