Feeling Sentimental?

With all of the hustle and bustle on the day of the wedding it can become so chaotic and nerves can start to get the best of you. Well, one of the grooms I worked with was ahead of the game and ordered a very LARGE bouquet to be sent to his bride the morning of the wedding. They had spent the night before the wedding apart and when she awoke there was a delivery man at the door in hand with her favorite flowers and a card reading, "Forever starts today my love."

I just thought this was a sweet idea for the groom to do for his leading lady the day of the wedding--it even had me holding back tears!

That just started their day out perfectly--no matter what went wrong after that, the day started perfectly and at the end of the day they were married. I am happy to report that the wedding went very smoothly and the bride's calm demeanor helped relax the ceremony and reception atmosphere...I am pretty sure that starting off with somthing sentimental had somthing to do with that!

Ladies--don't forget your men have nerves and upset stomachs too. Send him a little hand written note to be delivered by your maid of honor or wedding planner while he is getting ready!

The Groom and His Little Buddy

This fabulous photograph was taken by the lovely Jamie Abenroth. It is from one of my weddings back in February--as the groom was getting ready his little sidekick stood by him while he put on his sox. So much anticipation before that walk down the aisle!

Spring is Here!!

Passionate kisses under cherry blossom trees=LOVE!

I am a huge sucker for cherry blossom trees in the spring time. They just make me smile whenever I see them. I want to share a few photos from one of my 2009 couple's engagement session. Kristen Honeycutt is the incredibly talented photographer behind these photos and she is truly awesome to work with! I can't wait until the wedding!
