We have our engagement photographs back and we are ABSOLUTELY AMAZED at Staci’s talent (of Dear Olive Photography) and cannot wait for our wedding to be documented by her come June 2018!

My Cup of Thankfulness

How richly my cup overflows. (A very Happy Thanksgiving to you, my friends.) With every year I age and mature, I seem to find a little bit more wisdom in what I find to be blessings.

#Inspiration: Head Tables

I’m all over the board, I know, friends. One day I’m thinking about cakes, the next I’m considering the seating chart.

How We Met: Her Story

I first came across the name “G” in my email’s inbox. As contact person for our church’s 20-something’s Bible study group, House, G had requested information on learning more about the group. I sent my little happy blurb about our friends and where he could join us for Bible study, and wouldn’t you know the […]

#Inspiration: Naked Cakes & Cupcake Staging

G’s aunt has graciously offered to bake our wedding cake and cupcake treats for the wedding so scratch finding a local bakery off the list! (Thankfully! I honestly was not looking forward to going around taste-testing numerous cakes or other treats with the holiday season coming up. Ohmigoodness…) And I have heard amazing things about […]
