  • Meet Bailey

one of those girls that you meet and you instantly feel like you know her. I’m not really sure how to explain it but she just makes you feel welcome!! It could be her ability to talk to anyone about anything… or it could also be that she just loves everyone!! Bailey is just one of those people you enjoy being around!

That smile of hers went on for MILES this past Sunday! Morgan and Lauren have been waiting for this day for over 4 years and it was finally here! It was mother’s day and so the feeling of love and family was already in the air. I loved seeing SO many friends and family walk up the countryside to the top of the hill where they were to be married. The line of guests stretched all the way to the tent and everyone was so excited to be there. The weather was amazing the location was the perfect setting for Morgan and Lauren to tie the knot!

If I walk the wrong way, don’t disguise myself enough or jump out too soon, the proposal will be affected. It just makes me nervous…. but then afterwards, I LOVE being a part of it!!! :) So I just have to get over my fears and stick it out until the fun part! Travis and Shannon are friends of ours that we’ve known for quite a while. I remember meeting them when they were dating in
