Mike + Emily

  • Apple Blossom Plantation | Backyard Virginia Wedding

have been one of my most excited brides thus far! This girl could not WAIT to be married.  After their engagement session we were constantly texting about the wedding and I could tell that she was so ready for April 16th to be here! Mike is her best friend and they have dreamed of being married for so long. Two days before their wedding day, Em texted me about the forecast and it didn’t look good. I told her I had cute umbrellas and not to worry but deep down I was thinking “ohhh dear”.  They weren’t just calling for light showers, there were severe weather warnings issued for our area! Ah! Emily kept her cool and because they decided to do a first look, we were able to shoot TONS of portraits before the rain,

Wedding Wednesday

  • Creating Clusters!

these awesome flowers go to waste! I  bought these yesterday from a local GROCERY STORE and made these arrangements.  We used them for a project yesterday and I’ll admit it, I was so very proud of my bouquet! I’m no Janie Medley, but I think I have a few floral skills hidden deep within me. I know NOTHING about floral design but I think my grocery store bouquet is pretty cute!! I’m hoping it lives a few more days so I can keep staring at it every time I pass through the kitchen! So today’s WeddingWednesday is more like the good old days when I first started Wedding Wednesday’s and I actually designed wedding ideas.
