Sweet Baby Leo

Leo means lion in Latin, but this adorable little boy was anything, but a roaring lion. He even smiled in his sleep and made the sweetest little noises.

Leo has two military parents and they wanted to show how proud they were of their newest addition to the family as well as their love for their country.

"Babies are like little suns that, in a magical way, bring warmth, happiness, and light into our lives."

Kartini Diapari-Oengider

A future football player perhaps?

Leo's Aunty made him this impeccable crocheted striped blanket.

"We hold their hands for a short while, but their hearts forever."

Sweet Baby Grayson

Whether it's baseball, football, basketball, or soccer: this family has a passion for sports. They now have a new teammate: their adorable baby boy, Grayson.

"The love of sports is in our genes, it runs in the family. I never grew up wanting to do one particular thing."

Rudy Morrow

This soft, squishy bear was from Grayson's Grandparents. Imagine the warm cuddles that it will continue to give throughout the years. What a precious gift.

"A baby is a blessing, A gift from Heaven above, A precious little angel, To cherish and to love."

Greyson's parents both love baseball. They play together, watch it together, and root for their team together. Greyson fits snug like a glove onto this team. He even has his own onesie jersey to prove it.

"From the moment they placed you in our arms, you snuggled right into our hearts."

Matt & Trish

This wedding. This day. This couple. I had the hardest time choosing photos for this post, so be ready for a photo overload! To say this day was perfect would be an understatement. The weather, the location, the family & friends that gathered to watch Matt & Trish say "I do."

Here is their story, in Trish's words.

Matt and I met at Walgreens during his last year of Pharmacy School while he was on a rotation.  His preceptor was busy with a huge buyout so I got stuck with the "student" for most of the month.  I was the teacher and he was the student. For Matt, it was love at first site.  And then I spoke and he fell in love with my accent. I was the Southern Belle that he had always dreamed he would marry.  For me, he was the annoying student that I had to repeat everything I said because he was too busy trying to discuss how much we had in common.  Months went by and Matt became a Pharmacist.  He took every opportunity to call his "mentor" to ask the simplest of questions.  Each phone call he would try and state his case that he was a great catch.  Eventually, I transferred to another pharmacy and Matt took over my old pharmacy.  So, of course, he had to call me more to discuss the pharmacy.   And every phone call he tried to became more and more personal and less and less business. When he found out I was single, he enlisted our mutual friend, Reshma, to help his cause.  Every time I complained about another horrible date, Reshma would say, "what about Matt?"  And I would always respond, "please, I can not take him seriously". The two some how convinced me to go out for a drink on a Saturday night.  A drink and apps at happy hour turned into a lot of drinks, dancing, and closing down the bar.  It turned out the guy I thought was an immature player, was a fun loving, easy going, good hearted person who loved everything about me.  Since that night, we have spent every possible moment together.  It turned out, he was right the whole time, we have a lot in common.  For the longest time I wouldn't give him the time of day and now I can't imagine a day without him.

It was a beautiful evening, the sun just setting. Some fun games going on outside and just friends & family enjoying the time together.

The ring bearer and flower girl. So sweet :) I love these two photos because they wouldn't look at me, ants are obviously a lot more interesting than smiling for a photo. So, I tried to pick up the any to hold it so they would look at me, except in that process I squished it. Thus resulting in the photo of them just starring at me in shock :)


Every cute little detail just perfectly thought out.

A fun ending to a fantastic day!

Matt & Trish, we can't thank you enough for including us in your happiest day!


Bryan & Alica

Saturday morning proved to be the perfect day for Alica to marry Bryan, the man of her dreams on the family farm. The place where she followed "Daddy" around doing chores, rode horses with her Mom and kept up with her 3 brothers. Being involved with this wedding, I knew one thing from the start. Her family wanted this day to be one of the best, to be special. They completely transformed a hay barn into a reception hall and a field into a ceremony area. And details they did not spare. It was amazing. One thing about being around families on such important days is you can see the love they have for each other, how much they care & how much they will do for each other. So now enough of my rabbling, here is Bryan & Alica's love story!

"We met through a mutual friend while living in San Diego, CA.  Alicia was a student and exploring life away from home, Bryan was serving in the Marine Corps and was stationed there.  The attraction was obvious, but Alicia knew better than to get involved with a military man.  Bryan however was persistent and Alicia eventually caved and agreed to date.  Though the pace of the relationship started out very fast, we practically moved in with each other after a couple of months, it took a long time for them to actually say I do, over 9 years!  The foundation of our relationship is built upon the times and moments we have shared, both the good and the bad.  Best friends might have trying moments together, but will always overcome differences.  After almost a decade together we have become very good at just that. :)"

"something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" Notice the old penny, she had it in her boot all day!

...meanwhile at the guys.. take note the difference between guy & girls getting ready ;)

The first look was on a quaint dirt path leading into wide open fields that look out over the farm.

Then, just like that, it was time to get married! And he just couldn't help to think to himself as his beautiful future walked towards him, he is the luckiest guy in the world.

Some great photo bombs going on through out the day, such a fun wedding party! We loved hanging out with you all!! Thanks for making our job easy :)
