Late Winter weddings are quite beautiful here in the South. Jeremy and Meagan's day was no exception. They planned such a gorgeous blush pink and gold affair, which fell just perfectly before Valentine's Day. I knew they'd be a blast to work with the minute we met last year! I was so right. Everything about their day was high-energy and fun. Meagan is one of those exuberant kinds of people who lights up a room with her 100 watt smile. It's no wonder Jeremy fell in love with her. She's a gem. One of my favorite things about the day wasn't Meagan's stunning Vera Wang gown, the elegant venue or lovely decor, although those were absolutely picturesque. My favorite thing was how much Jeremy and Meagan appreciated those who came to celebrate their love, and how thankful they were for the friends and family who worked so hard to make their dreams come true. It just made me all the more grateful to serve such wonderful couples like them.Read More
Hey remember that time we went on vacation last month? Yeah me too. I'm just getting around to posting more photos! Oops! After spending most of our vacation in the Smokies, we finished out the trip by visiting my family in DC. I hadn't been to see everyone up there in 3 years! That's way to long in my book! My family used make the 14 hour trek from Florida to visit twice a year. I loved it. It was so different visiting without the rest of my family this time and with my husband. I guess that means I grew up or something. Anyway, since our trip was short we decided just to go to the Capitol for an afternoon. Though I've been twice a year since I was a baby, Jonathan only went a time or two during grade school. Poor little public school kid. Haha. We went to the new International Spy museum (which was awesome), the Library of Congress and the Lincoln Memorial. Ah, we love adventuring.
The Library of Congress is one of my favorite places in DC. Oh, the architecture! My grandmother actually worked there for a little while!
The Lincoln Memorial is one of my favorites. I love to stand on the steps and look across the pool to the Washington Monument. Unfortunately, the pool was under some kind of construction so it wasn't as pretty as I remembered.
After a long afternoon of sightseeing and sweating, my sweet cousins met us for dinner. They are hillarious. I really wish we all lived closer! Alas!
Well, that's about it folks! I'm currently recovering from a wonderful weekend full of friends and family. Seriously, why can't all the people I love live in the same town? Boo. However, my sweet sissy just moved to college about 30 minutes from our place! Her first day of class is today! Now I just have to get the rest of them here...
I hope you all had a great weekend!
The second day of our little anniversary trip was definitely the most fun. Jonathan and I both love animals, so we decided to visit the Atlanta zoo. There is a pretty awesome zoo where I'm from in Jacksonville, but this one really topped it in my opinion. What was the thing that sold me? SHADE! Hehe. I can remember so many hot days at the zoo as a kid, so this was very refreshing. Nearly the whole park was covered with trees. Besides a few groups of school kids, it was rather quiet as well.
Can I also mention how ghostly white I am! Whoa. Someone needs a least a little sun!
Some nice person gave me their extra stick to feed the parakeets. It would have been a whole lot cooler if I didn't have one growing up. Feeding Blue Bell the birdie was one of my chores! :)
This little baby gorilla was so cute. It kept trying to run away from it's mom, but she would sling him back up on her back time after time. The amusing show reminded me of more than one rambunctious little toddler. All of the gorillas were pretty active and walking around. Watching them was a super neat.
Alas, the kangaroos were feeling lazy when we passed by. No jumping. No little joeys in pouches. Sad, sad day.
After the zoo we hit up a local H&M (we don't have one here) and a phenominal stake house. We found Jonathan a sweet vest at H&M! You'd be surprised how long it's taken us to find one! He looks pretty rockin' in it if I do say so myself. Hehe. We left ATL with full bellies and some priceless memories. I'm one lucky girl to have my man. I'm so thankful.
PS: I am incredibly honored to have a recent e-session of mine featured on this adorable blog today! ;)
