Beautiful friend’s wedding

17 Feb

So as I plan for my own wedding in a little over 20 days, I thought I would say “happy almost 2 month anniversary” to two of my dearest friends and post a couple photos I shot from a their wedding in December. It was in lovely Sarasota, Florida and the weather was ideal. The weekend couldn’t have been more perfect, and I was so blessed to be a part of it (and Chip was in the wedding party with me, to boot!)

Check out those flowers pre-bouquet:

Love this one of a few of the bridesmaids watching as the bride had her hair done:

And how about the most precious ring bearer I’ve ever seen. He and his siblings were definitely the hit of the party (besides the sweet couple, of course):

Her wonderful parents as they watch the pre-wedding photo shoot:

My personal favorite of Cinderella herself:

And finally, a photo of the beautiful Mrs. Karempelis and me:

What a beautiful day! Now I’m so looking forward to celebrating with Mr. and Mrs. Karempelis on my wedding day! Coming soon!

Engagement Celebration!

20 Nov

He put a ring on it! It is absolutely so exciting for me to share that one of my dearest friends, Beth, is officially engaged! Chip and I could not have been more thrilled to be a part of the engagement celebration, as Beth was staying at my house that night in Athens. What we expected to end up in a night of playing our freshly purchased Scrabble game, ended up in a whole lot of this for the sweet couple:

And giddy photographing for us:

The Yellow House roommate’s reaction:

Now, I am just thrilled to be able to plan showers, parties and the wedding at the same time as her! What a sweet treat! First stop, an engagement party next Saturday!

Something old, something new…

8 Nov

This past weekend one of my closest friends got married! As a bridesmaid, I became the (un)official photographer for all of the events leading up to the wedding. It was awesome!

On Saturday, I couldn’t help but snap a few photos while we were getting ready to document the day how beautiful she was. As she got ready, it got me thinking about the “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” phrase. Her something old was an heirloom hanky, something new was the broach in her hair, something borrowed were the earrings her mom is putting on her in the photo and something blue was an embroidered hanky to tie around the stems of her bouquet with the wedding date, her old monogram and new monogram. I loved all of these and the sweet sentimental value behind them.

However, I am not sure exactly what to use for each of those on March 10… but I do know that I apparently have a “silver sixpence in [my] shoe” already waiting for me. I just recently found out about that end to the rhyme, but can’t find what the history behind it is.

If nothing else, I wouldn’t mind borrowing that broach for my something borrowed. It was gorgeous!

What are your suggestions for one of those “lucky” items for a bride?

Wedding website

2 Nov

So we officially have the wedding website up and running!

It may have taken me way to long to figure out how to load a picture onto it (you’d think it’d be more user friendly… but apparently not), but now it officially is ready to go.

I’ll be adding more info to it as time goes on about hotels, etc., but am pleased to present to you:

Plus, it's featuring everyone's favorite engagement shot...

Enjoy!

Frame our names – engagement photos

15 Oct

As I sit and wait anxiously patiently for the final edits of our engagement photos, I figured I would share with you one more preview photo that our photog sent to tide me over and how I crafted it to really “make” our engagement shoot!

Behold: the framed names!

Our vintage, travel-themed engagement shoot really would not have been the same without this little craft. My friends always laugh at me. See, when others spot something in a picture, on Pinterest or online, the typical reaction is… I would like that. I think I’ll buy it. Mine, however, is… I would like that. I think I’ll make it. Why not give it a go, right? What’s the worst that could happen… lo and behold, we loved the result!

We were thrilled at how well the frame turned out for our photos! Plus, be expecting those wire words to reappear in the future. Stay tuned!

Have you been inspired to tackle a craft of your own lately? Feel free to pass along some suggestions!

Update! Here are the engagement photos!
