wedding wednesday: bridal show

My girlfriend got engaged and we are beginning to plan her special day! It is so exciting! Just last year she was helping me plan my special day. Being able to support her during this is going to be a blast. She is getting married in September, so we are not too far away. Our first bride/bridesmaid outing was at a bridal show in our city. The show was full of ideas and quite overwhelming. There were plenty of cakes to sample, dresses to see, DJs and beautiful floral arrangements. Everywhere you looked were booths and brides to be waiting to see the latest trends in weddings. Every table/floral setting was romantic and soft, probably the trend in 2014 weddings. There was a lot of "grown sexy" (Catherine & Sean's theme from the bachelor wedding) cakes and florals. It was a fun afternoon with my girlfriends, and I think our favorite moment was meeting Emily Maynard from The bachelor & Bachelorette! She was so kind to take a moment from her wedding planning for a photo. We ran into her after the contest winners were announced. She walked passed us, and looked like a familiar face in the crowd. No one following her, just as she was a normal person. It was refreshing to see that fame didn't change her. A beautiful woman and bride to be! Take a look at our photo with Emily and the rest of the show:

  1. Bridal shows are, indeed, the best place to get ideas for a wedding. It won’t just give you the chance to know wedding organizers in the event, you might also get discounted price for services offered. Hope your friend got lots of helpful ideas during this event. By the way, I love the wedding dresses that you’ve posted. Is it among these the soon-to-be bride’s best pick? :)

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.…
