About the Lifestyle Blog

My day job is a wedding photographer, but my life consists of so much more than weddings. Here on my lifestyle blog, you’ll learn a lot more about me personally away from the camera. I love Jesus, being a wife, crafting, cooking, growing things, and so much more. I’ll document my heart here and I’m glad you’re along for the ride.

June 6-9 Weekend Recap + Brian & Abbi Sneak Peek

Oh you guys, I cannot express to you in any amount of words the absolute joy this weekend brought for soooo many reasons.

Here’s my weekend recap of the first full weekend in June!

This was a full-on wedding weekend for both me and Matt. Not only was a I shooting the wedding of our dear friends from college, but Matt was also a groomsman! So we were both VERY busy!

1. Since Matt was a groomsman, he spent Thursday doing groomsmen things in Blacksburg. So I decided to spend the day in Martinsville with my mom! We termed it our “craft day” though not that many “crafts” were actually finished. Hahahaha. We tried really hard to make some throw pillows for my couch and let’s just say it was a challenge! But after lots of trial and error (and about 6 hours), we completed 4 pillows! Yay! It’s going to be so nice to finally have pillows to lay on!

Overall, we had a lot of fun and laughs. Definitely ones that I’m sure we’ll giggle over for many years to come (and ones I’m sure will be told to our kids when they come along in the future, haha). What a great start to our weekend!

2. The wedding! Since I’m a wedding photographer, it’s pretty much given that I love weddings. But when you add in two friends who are so obviously well suited for one another, a lot of family and friends, and such a deep love for the Lord by all parties involved, you get to experience a wedding on an entirely new level. I was SO honored to be a part of their day.

3. The other cool thing about friend’s weddings is reuniting with lots of other friends! Some of us got together at Gillie’s for a post-wedding brunch to catch up and eat a delicious meal. I loved seeing everyone and hate that we only do get to see each other about once every 2/3 years. But that’s grown up life for you. But we’ll see them all at the next wedding! Whenever that is… haha.

And now for what you’ve probably been waiting for: I can’t recap the weekend with showing you a sneak peek of the absolutely beautiful wedding Brian and Abbi had on Saturday. It was such a beautiful day and we had a blast! Be sure to check back for the full post in 2-3 weeks!!
