Lake Como, Italy

  • Vacation in Bellano

Last week you saw me blog one of my favorite weddings of my entire career! We had the opportunity to shoot a wedding at Lake Como, Italy and it was absolutely amazing!!! As soon as we found out that we were actually doing this, we had to start baby-planning. I was pregnant when we booked this wedding and so I had no experience with having a baby. We knew that we could be taking anywhere from a 8-12 week old depending on when Evy was born! We prayed for a baby that could sleep and travel well!

Greg + Alyssa | Married

Some of you may remember our story about our land! It wasn’t as easy as just finding something on Zillow and buying it! It took almost two years to make it official and to start building the house! We had to do some research, ask neighbors about the internet situation, and spend countless hours on the phone with Comcast trying to make sure that we could have high speed lines run out into the country! We had to get the land rezoned to be residential, and that meant several Board of Supervisors meetings and country votes. It was QUITE the process! You may have also heard us mention that the way we found our current homesite was through another lot of land that was actually for sale!

Everly’s Third Month

Everly is three months old today! She’s three months and her uncle Corey turned 23!!! Happy Birthday Corey! I’m combining Evy’s Three month post with Corey’s birthday post because….efficiency! Corey is actually getting married in 9 days! I can’t believe it!! He just graduated from college last weekend too! This is like the biggest month of his life so far!! Uncle Corey is so good at being an Uncle. He loves Micah and Evy so much, and he’s a natural with them!!! I think I speak for my sister when I say that we are so thankful that our kids are going to grow up with such a fun Uncle who loves them to pieces!!
