Dena + Doug

So I couldn’t resist sharing what a RAD time I had with Dena and Doug yesterday; although the weather’s moody nature turned from sunny to hurricane-esque to sunny again I wouldn’t have wished my time with them any other way! After some down-town fun, we ventured out to find the *best* fields in St. Croix county and came upon some pretty happinin’ places.

Doug and Dena not only sport the mere perfection of vintage awesomeness but they are down-right in love…they share their love for fashion and design together along with heir smiles that bring a contagious sense of humor! The items they brought along to the shoot were perfect and I only wished that we would have had more sunlight to run around in….

AND THEY BROUGHT THE HAPPY APPLES WITH!! Does anyone else remember how fun those were to play with when you were little?!?!?! They even make the cutest little sound when they wobble back and forth……memories….

They happen to hold special meaning to Doug and Dena too. Doug had one before they were married and Dena had some jealousy for how awesome it was; so when Doug proposed to Dena he decided to do it in an antique store where the ring happened to be around the top stem of a happy apple. So now they each have a happy apple of their own! How cute is that?!?!?!

We found this rusty bike by the side of the road…I couldn’t resist! So, what better spot than to share a few cokes with each other?!? :)

    Pam Witt - Dena and Doug — WOW!!! I guess I need to keep an eye out for more vintage chairs for you in special colors — I like the happy apple story. Will you forward this to Grama Bea? — Did you know she is the most creative person of us all, where all the creativity came from on the Swenson side. Love, Pam
