I wanted to share a quick post. We said "I do" on Saturday June 8th, after 8 years we are now husband and wife! I wasn't able to take any photos with my phone the day of, but our family and friends shared photos of our day. Thank you all for sharing those. Here is a glimpse of our special day, more photos will be posted later.

The best memories of our day was:

It rained the whole week of our wedding week, we thought it would be raining on our day. It rained the morning of, but was sunny when our traditional Laos ceremony began. It's good luck when it rains on your day. I'm glad the sun came out and Hurricane Andrea gaves us a break from the rain.

The Laos ceremony was beautiful. The older women helped me get dressed in traditional wedding dress.  My uncle led the wedding, we got laughter, cheers, and tears from him and the guests.

Our photographer (Aunt Nyvanhn) did an amazing job! She not only took photos, but she helped me through the day. She captured everything! I'm excited to see and share her photos. A blessing to have her.

The day was busy and my girls did a great job helping me. Thank you for helping me get dressed, with my makeup, guiding me, and running around for me. Great teamwork girls. They also looked beautiful, thanks to our glam squad Nithda & Nina.

Nithda & Nina did a wonderful job on getting our girls hair and makeup looking beautiful. I especially loved my hair, Thank you girls!

My brother is the world's best brother, he ran errands all day. He took charge of everyone's needs and I get all weepy thinking about the hard work he put into the wedding.

Our Christian ceremony was beautiful, Mark, Pastor Anna, and Vivian did such a great job helping and organizing the ceremony!

Our family and friends who helped with catering and setup. I heard the food was great, sorry I didn't get a bite. The reception looked so beautiful. I was impressed with the lighting, tables, candy table, and head table.

Geoff & Serena gave heart warming speeches. I laughed and wept. Thank you for sharing those words with our guests!

I was so happy to see everyone who came to the wedding. It meant so much to us! Thank you to those who drove a long ways to share our day. Thank you for coming out to share our big day!

Everyone who worked hard and gave a helping hand catering, running errands, guiding us, taking photos, and helping us clean up, thank you.


  1. Congratulations!!! The pics are gorgeous, I wish you and your husband all the best!!:)

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…

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…

outfit of the day: western denim shirt

What I wore:Andrew's Co. denim shirt, Old Navy shorts, Thrifted belt, Charming Charlie watch, Kay Jewlers pearl necklace, Belk's pearl earrings, Old Navy sunglasses, and Unisa sandals. (engagement ring: gift =) lol)

denim shirt by lisaanatha featuring short shorts
This denim shirt is very similar to J.Crew's western denim shirt here. (And pictured above) I'm not wearing the J.Crew's denim shirt, however I made an awesome find going through old boxes of clothes my mom had in her basement. A lot of clothing worn in the 80s and 90s are making it in today's fashion. I also found it humorous Zach and Kelly, from Saved by the Bell (show i loved from the 90s) , sported these denim shirt looks. Do you guys remember that?! Don't let go of this staple piece. I think it has been a summer trend, but it can easily transfer to fall and winter must haves too! In the winter I would wear this under a sweater for a warm, but chic look. Stay posted for that outfit of the day.…
