A Life Day

  • No blog post today!! Gasp!

not necessarily “taking the day off”… I’m just trying to get stuff done that normal people get done on a regular basis. You know… laundry, stopping by the bank, taking the car to the shop, vacuuming our nasty carpet, buying a few groceries, attending a cycle class and actually making the bed!! These are all SIMPLE things… but I can’t seem to get them done. So today is a LIFE day. I’m not relaxing and doing nothing… I’m literally just trying to keep up with LIFE. So no blog post, no editing, no massive amount of email responding… just doing LIFE. So have a fabulous Thursday and congrats to Gabrielle Corbin!!

Wedding Wednesday

  • Autumn Color Palette Inspiration

may actually be a little bit LATE for some fall wedding inspiration, I know there are some brides out there that are STILL trying to figure out accent colors and palette details for their fall weddings. So here’s a little Wedding Wednesday color inspiration! I recently received Lowe’s awesome DIY booklet that they send out each season and it was FULL of beautiful colors! So I took some of those colors and designed a few “not so typical” wedding color palettes for today’s post! I LOVE a good color palette for a wedding and so often brides are afraid to  try something

Drew + Carter

  • A Rustic Mountain Wedding | Lynchburg, VA

There are some times when I don’t get to do an engagement session for one of my couples and while I miss that time with them… it’s also kind of fun to show them off on the blog for the first time! You’ve never met Carter and Drew until today and let me tell you… you’re going to love them in about 5 seconds!!! Their wedding day was beyond beautiful.  The ceremony took place on private property outside of Lynchburg, VA and it couldn’t have been more perfect. It’s like this little knoll and pine trees was MADE to be a wedding location!! Drew and Carter said their vows while while the sun set over some of the most beautiful mountains in all of Virginia.  It was amazing. Simply Amazing!!! Carter and Michael are great friends from his time in
