MARRIED TO THE BEST

Married to the best

So … it’s my husband’s 43rd birthday tomorrow and I have quite a few photos from our recent trip to Pennsylvania and NY state. You see where I am going with this? He is in so many of these and they show how awesome he is. I thought this would be a good time to blog them and share how much we love him. Mike is the best husband and father I could ever ask for. He is hands on, fun and loving. He truly completes me and makes me better. We are so thankful for all that he does for us and how hard he works. Mike you bring us joy and are loved immensely. Thank you for being born!

Our trip to Mike’s hometown took us down many turns on memory lane and the boys enjoyed hearing the stories. We started off our journey in the truck and the drive is LONG. LONGGGGGGGGGGGGG … like 12 hours long. Luckily, we stopped in West Virginia for the night on the way up. I do have to say we have good car riding children and for that I am thankful. Several years back we started renting a rustic cabin in Allegheny State Park so that it was easier for his family and friends to stop in and visit when they could. It also gives us an opportunity to hang with Mike’s sister and brother in law since they now rent a cabin as well. This place is absolutely beautiful with it’s pristine lakes and trails. There is so much we still haven’t explored after several years of visiting.

One thing we had to do on this trip though was go to Gilbert Resevoir so we could see it drained. This is where Mike made a lot of childhood memories and he enjoyed seeing it again, especially when you could now see the bottom. Pretty cool we got to experience that before they fill it back up. The boys enjoyed riding their bikes until it got too muddy to continue and Andy had a full on fit because of mud on his shoe. This all made for a lot of good photo opportunities though. Especially when we found some construction equipment to play on. Oh and how could you pass up and old oil rig for a photo when you can park your Ford truck next too it. Right Mike? Haha.

That day was fairly rainy and cool but the next day was beautiful. A great day for some fishing. The boys gave up pretty quickly but at least they got to drop a line. It was a good trip with lots of memories made. We love you honey. Happy birthday!

16 HANDS FARM WEDDING, WEST JEFFERSON, NC

16 Hands Farm Wedding, West Jefferson, NC

Corynn and Eric were married Memorial Day weekend at 16 Hands Farms in West Jefferson, NC. Their Son was by the couple’s side along with their entire family and friends and not to forget baby on the way! Everything about their day was sweet and filled with love. Corynn and Eric live in Texas and planned from afar so we met in person for the first time on the wedding day. It was so good to finally meet after chatting through their plans on the phone. We loved working with Edenhouse Florals and Events as the wedding planners. They made sure the day went perfectly. This venue is spectacular and offered up so many scenic areas.

Corynn looked absolutely beautiful and the emotions came out after her Mom helped her get her dress and everything starting happening fast. That is my favorite part of the day. The time when it really starts and the celebration of marriage truly begins. Her Dad was so sweet seeing her in her dress. Eric and the groomsmen looked great as well, love his navy blazer and pink tie combo. Also, check out those beautiful florals by a family friend, Kathy Shepard.

The barn is so perfect and served as the backdrop to Corynn and Eric’s ceremony. They even made their way to the loft to seal the their vows with guests looking on from below. The mountain weather was perfect for their day and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Especially a few little boys who couldn’t control their temptation for the babbling brook that flows through the property. They never got wet though. Haha. After the ceremony guests enjoyed catering by Sweet and Savory and BBQ that was smoked by Eric’s dad. Corynn and Eric had a small cake that they enjoyed cutting and all the guests had beautiful cupcakes at their tables by The Baker’s Addict.

Congratulations to this sweet family. We were honored to document your day capture your memories. Thank you immensely to Melissa Biggers for assisting in shooting this wedding!

MARKET ON MAIN WEDDING, HICKORY, NC

Market on Main Wedding, Hickory, NC

Amy and Michael said “I do” at Market on Main earlier this Spring. Their wedding day was absolutely beautiful. Perfect weather and the perfect ceremony with family and friends. I met them at a beautiful home nestled high atop a mountain in Lenoir, NC. That’s where Amy and Michael had their first look and got a few shots with their family and closest friends. Then we headed out for the ceremony at Market on Main in Hickory.

Amy is so beautiful and her dress was elegant and perfect. She walked down the aisle with guests seated at their tables to witness her union to Michael. It made for such and intimate and cozy feel. I loved their prayer with their children. Very sweet and thoughtful. After the ceremony we got some more pretty images of the happy couple and then they enjoyed their guests and evening.

Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your day. It was a pleasure.Market on Main Wedding, Hickory, NCMarket on Main Wedding, Hickory, NCMarket on Main Wedding, Hickory, NCMarket on Main Wedding, Hickory, NCMarket on Main Wedding, Hickory, NCMarket on Main Wedding, Hickory, NCMarket on Main Wedding, Hickory, NCMarket on Main Wedding, Hickory, NCMarket on Main Wedding, Hickory, NCMarket on Main Wedding, Hickory, NCMarket on Main Wedding, Hickory, NC
