wedding wednesday: wolfpack weekend

This weekend the fiance went on his bachelor gateway to Charlottesville, VA.


The guys started their weekend off by stopping at a local hot spot called Beer Run for breakfast.  Souwan had the El Bombero Breakfast Burrito with a side of Free Range Bacon and Organic Drip Coffee.  If you are looking for specialty or craft beer and awesome FOOD look no further then Beer Run.  For lunch the guys went to another local favorite gathering place called Bodo's Bagel.  Here Souwan ate Pastrami with Lettuce, Mayo, Avocado and Provolone Cheese on an Everything Bagel with a Cesar Side Salad.  They have the BEST bagels here! Better than Eintstein.  Dinner was at home with a surf and turf menu. 


After breakfast at Beer Run, the guys took a detour through the Shenandoah National Park to take in the breathtaking view and fresh air.


First stop on the winery and brewery tour was Veritas Vineyard & Winery.  Veritas allows you to take in the beauty of the Blue Ridge, which is all around.



The guys' next stop was Blue Mountain Brewery.  They enjoyed the beer flight which allowed them to try the brewery's 10 different beer.  Their favorite was the Rockfish Wheat.



Once home they walked to the lake to go fishing.  Good company, awesome story, and refreshing beer...What else can you ask for?


Souwan ended the weekend with a 2 mile hike with Geoff and his two dogs.

Thank you Geoff, the Parks Family, Lauren and Jake.

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!
