Joshua and Kaitlin joined us on the prettiest autumn afternoon for their beautiful mountain elopement. We are still oohing and ahhing over Kaitlin’s amazing style and gorgeous bridal look.

I’ll admit it, birthday parties are my thing. They make me so darn happy. I don’t know why I love them so much…I just do. Every year with our girls is magic, and I love celebrating their milestones with a special party. Lyra is our December baby, and her party always ends up being just […]
The Golden Horseshoe Inn has been around for a very long time…192 years to be exact, it was built in 1827! I like to think that a building that has stood the test of time is the perfect spot to start a marriage that will stand the test of time! There is not much that […]
With a calendar full of upcoming weddings and a brand new photo session waiting on my hard drive to be edited, it is easy to keep rushing full tilt into the future. But sometimes it is worth taking a moment to look back. I’d love to share my journey a little, and how I ended […]
Birthday Parties are my thing! I make no excuses about that 🙂 They just make me so darn happy. I love everything about them! I love conferring with my kids over Pinterest Idea’s. Choosing a Theme. Deciding on Colors and Decorations. I. Just. Love. It! We all have a few things in our lives where […]
