I know, I know! You have all of your pictures on your phone. Your photographer delivered your photos to you on an online gallery so it could be shared easily. But when was the last time you sat down to look at your pictures & re-lived an experience of a certain event?Read More
Every year at this time, people are making resolutions & commitments to do something better! Well, friends … here is my New Year’s resolution for our business - BLOG MORE & consistently! This is because I want you to KNOW our couples & be familiar with their stories. We serve the sweetest brides & by golly - it’s my joy to let them shine!
Up first this 2019 is Sydney & Drew! Fun fact - Sydney & Drew are already married :) When Drew was called to leave & serve in the Armed Forces, they decided to make the leap & have a small elopement ceremony in August of 2017. He was deployed Dec 26, 2017 & was gone for almost one full year! He finally returned home this December- just in time for Christmas :) Finally, Drew & Sydney are no longer long distance & are planning a vow renewal for their friends & family in March!Read More
It was this time last year that I felt it.
Kerr was fresh home from the hospital & we were on Cloud 9! Our whole world had changed for the better & we knew we had received one of the greatest gifts of our lives.
But deep down inside there was something stirring. I cried about it multiple times & begged the Lord to take it from me. This deep feeling of anxiety always hovering, like a bad dream. I wanted to be a mom & a business owner but wasn’t sure how to put the two together. I was scared that I would fail at one or worse - both & the whole world would come crashing down around me.
One day I was knee deep in laundry as tears poured down my face. I felt like I wasn’t measuring up. I had put high standards on myself for the tasks I needed to complete while also keeping our office up to speed & keeping another human alive!! I heard the Lord speak over me:
“Grace & Peace, my daughter! Slow down & savor!”Read More
Dear Little One,
This is one of my last letters to you before you make your entrance into this world. I can hardly believe it! You have grown so much in the last few weeks - making me more & more ready to meet your sweet face.
Carrying you has been a JOY - more than I could have ever imagined or hoped for. Once you are born, we won't ALWAYS be together. This is so hard for me to imagine! Being with you & feeling you flutter in my tummy is one of the greatest gifts the Lord has ever given me! Thank you for being an active baby. Thank you for letting us play with your feet. Thank you for loving Chick-Fil-A milkshakes - you will fit right in with Papa & I!
I have carried you so many places this year & I have looked forward to cataloging them all so one day - you can see for yourself, you truly are a miracle!Read More

How would we balance family time & business? As we look back, here are the 3 largest things we learned in 2018:Read More
