The Tropical Southern Wedding | Jasmine Plantation

  • Dan + Kelsey

have heard someone say that “everything happens for a reason”.  Well, I think you can take that a step further and say that you meet everyone in your life for a reason too! I met Kelsey 4 or 5 years ago while I was visiting a friend at Tech and look how that friendship has grown!! Not only did I end up shooting Kelsey’s wedding, but I was also able to form an awesome friendship with both her and Dan. These two were married last Saturday in Providence Forge, VA on a quaint plantation. The rain held off  and allowed them to have the beautiful outdoor wedding that they dreamed about. Surrounded by their family and friends, they became best friends and companions for LIFE.

  • Meet Katie

over somewhere new… completely NEW. Michael and I got married and moved to the west end of Richmond without knowing a soul. Well, we knew a few people but as far as our church family, we knew no one. It was great for our marriage. We had never experienced anything like that throughout our 8 years of dating. Starting brand new can be exciting but also a little scary.  We came into this new youth group knowing that these kids had been through a lot the last few years.  Some of them had watched numerous youth pastors come and go, each time thinking that “this was it, this one is going to stay!”… only to be let down in the end.


Watermarks Camp

  • High Rise Worship Band

me blogging about taking our kids on Winter Retreat back in January. Well, if you don’t remember, you can view it HERE!  We took them to Watermarks Camp in Scottsville, VA and we love that place! Absolutely love it! Michael and I went there in high school and then led retreats there when we were in college and now we’re bringing our own kids there! Crazy!! And when I say “kids” … you should know that I’m talking about our youth group kids…we consider them to be part of the family! And speaking of family, we have loved getting to know the Watermarks family so much over the last few years!
