Wedding Wednesday

  • Flower Power

thinking “Katelyn you say EVERYTHING is important on a wedding day!” and I can see how you would think that. I JUST blogged about reception lighting and how it’s so great to have and I’ve blogged about details and the importance of themes… etc, etc. The thing is, I know that not EVERYONE has a budget to pull everything off. When I got married I didn’t have a budget that could pull everything off either! So this post is about ONE part of the wedding day that can change the LOOK of the overall wedding day dramatically! This post is about the bridal bouquet. I’m not talking about the bridesmaid’s florals or even the centerpieces…

Patrick + Emilie

  • A Bird Inspired Richmond VA Wedding

They walked into our house for a little get together. Michael and I had only been in Richmond a few months but we had heard about how awesome the college kids were and so as soon as they got home for Christmas, we invited anyone over that wanted to come. I remember meeting Patrick and Emilie specifically because they already seemed like they were engaged.  What I mean by that is, it was just obvious how awesome of a pair they were.  I loved meeting Patrick because he’s hilarious and then I really loved getting to know Emilie because she has such a great heart and a calm spirit. I don’t think anyone would ever describe me as having a CALM anything!

We're Outta Here

  • Prayer for the 2013 Youth Mission Trip

I’m probably sleeping on a slightly deflated air mattress on the floor of a high school somewhere on the Eastern Shore. Yup. I’m on our annual mission trip! You can view last year’s trip HERE! It was a BLAST and I’m excited to be involved again this year. I’m just hoping I’m not in charge of power washing again, that really wasn’t the safest job for me to have last year!! During our stay on the Eastern Shore we’ll be working on 30+ construction projects, leading VBS, serving veterans and trying to survive the heat! It’s going to be amazing!! Serving people is probably one
