Although it was not the day they had originally planned, it was the most magical day nonetheless!  A beautiful bride, her handsome groom, their loving family and a day that ended with a “wedding parade”!  Brides and Grooms and families are having to make such tough decisions right now about their wedding days.  Kayla and […]

And so it was that April 18th found this incredibly sweet couple sharing […]

A Sweet Sixteen in Quarantine is not exactly what we were planning…but it is what we got.  So, like the rest of the world, we are doing our best to make lemonade from lemons.  Meet Belle.  My beautiful, quirky, crazy-smart, astrophysicist wanna be, almost sixteen year old daughter.  When she is not gathering “fun facts […]

I always feel so sentimental about wedding photos – but these ones are especially getting me.  Maybe it’s because they feel like the “last good day”…before everything changed and the world got turned upside down a little.  Of course there will be lots more “good days”, but right now, I am so very thankful we […]
