Anna & Ben :: MARRIED


Anna’s wedding was the first one I attended this summer. Anna married her high-school sweetheart Ben in May.

The wedding was elegant and sweet, like Anna herself. The care-free but wonderful Anna made for a lovely bride. I loved seeing all her classy and cutesey details come together.

Anna and Ben’s wedding had some very special elements. Anna wore a THIRD GENERATION wedding dress! They displayed pictures of Anna’s grandmother and her mom wearing the gown.

One other special factor: the reception was held in my parents’ backyard. This seemed right as my family grew up with Anna’s.

I loved celebrating the marriage of Anna and Ben, and spending time with home town people I’ve loved for a very long time.



Year In Review


I think I lived up to This Is My Year! with all the fun and fantastic things I did in 2013. Big and small, I loved so much of this year.

Annie and Travis Tied the Knot


My first hometown friend got married this weekend. I remember meeting Anne Marie when her family moved in fourth grade and our friendship has come a LONG way. I’m so thankful that Annie and I have become friends, especially in high school and even through college. I love how Annie is growing closer to the Lord and how happy she is when she’s with Travis. I think Annie and Travis are great for each other and celebrating their big day with them was really special for me. Did I mention I had a blast at their wedding and reception?
