It’s amazing how fast a year goes by! Last year around this time, Brian and I decided that we wanted to be homeowners. We started searching for the perfect house for our little family in September of 2015. We had no true idea of what area we wanted to live in, but we knew that we wanted a decent sized house in an area with great schools for the girls. You can read more about our house journey¬†here!

After visiting a few houses and coming back to the first location that we had found, we decided that it would be perfect for us! My dream last year around this time was for us to be in our new home for Christmas. But with the process of making offers and closing, that wasn’t exactly possible. Especially being that we didn’t make our offer on the house until a few days before Christmas last year! Fast forward a few months and the holiday season has rolled around again!

So to say that I’m excited about our first Christmas in our home would be an understatement. I felt that it was only right for us to get a new Christmas tree to help us celebrate the holidays this year! Initially we had planned to get a real tree this year, but with being almost 8 months pregnant, an artificial tree sounded a tad bit easier to manage this time! I also took the advice of one of our families and put up a smaller tree in our upstairs hallway! It’s a super simple tree but the lights look good from outside. Plus Brian picked out a winter candy apple candle to add a little seasonal smell to the house!

Are you guys ready for the holidays? We’d love to hear from you! Leave us a comment below.

A little over a month ago, I had the pleasure of assisting a local photographer at this gorgeous wedding at The Cloth Mill at Eno River in Hillsborough, North Carolina. I was a little nervous as Hurricane Matthew had just devastated parts of North Carolina the day before. Thankfully, these guys had the perfect weather for their brunch wedding in Hillsborough at The Cloth Mill at Eno River!

When I arrived, the bride was busy getting into her dress and the guys were taking a little time to relax before the ceremony! We spent some time with the bride and her ladies inside the bridal suite and then headed outside to prepare for the ceremony! The ceremony was simple and sweet! Stunning floral pieces had been placed near the alter and lots of guest had gathered to witness their union. The bride and groom shared the sweetest vows with each other before jumping the broom and kissing for the first time as husband and wife! After the ceremony, we headed over to a nearby park for portraits! Ray and Allison looked absolutely stunning!

These guys chose to have a brunch style wedding and it was a huge hit! Everyone enjoyed small brunch foods before enjoying cake. The rest of the evening was spent with the guest laughing and dancing inside of The Cloth Mill ballroom. It was an amazing day and I am so glad that I got to meet these two and be a part of their special day!!

It’s amazing to think that it has been over 8 years since Brian and I had our first date! Or maybe I should say lunch date because that’s more like what it was! When Brian and I met, he was busy working most nights and I was busy working during the day! Planning a date when normal folks do wasn’t the easiest due to our schedules, so he suggested we meet for lunch at Jersey Mike’s!

Jersey Mike’s of all places. Not Melting Pot that was right across the street, but Jersey Mike’s. We’re both pretty simple people! We met during my lunch break one day and really enjoyed chatting with each other! I have no idea what we talked about that day, but a few weeks later we were talking about growing old together. So I assume the conversation must have been amazing!

It’s been a long time since we’ve been to eat at Jersey Mike’s, but we’ve created lots of new memories and traditions over the years! I think we may have to go for cheesesteaks on our next anniversary!

It was great seeing these guys again! You might remember Zinia and Lawrence from last fall when we worked with them on their amazingly fun wedding at the Wagner House in Clayton, North Carolina. It’s always an adventure when I’m with these guys! During portraits on their wedding day, we stumbled onto a crime scene. This time they had me shaking in my booties (literally) when I saw their fur baby, Ace! For some reason, I have this crazy fear of pitbulls! I think that it goes back to when I was in middle school and our neighbors would let their pitbull roam into our yard! I would run down the path at the slightest sound of a dog bark! Thankfully, Ace was a big ball of energy and as sweet as could be!

We are so excited for these guys as they prepare to welcome a new addition to the family! Zinia looked amazing at almost 8 months pregnant! We met for their maternity portraits at Fred Fletcher Park near downtown Raleigh! This was only my second time checking out this location, but it’s really pretty! I had so much fun hanging with these two and can’t wait to see photos of their baby boy in December!!
