Hi friends!

Mercy, so I was sorting and organizing my TMD files on my macbook, and realized how many shoots and weddings I never blogged! I also realized how many weddings I don’t actually have images from either! Hopefully, I can backtrack and get some more pretties to share, but for now I’ll be comin’ at ya with some pretty gorgeous one I already have!

First up, a dream come true. Ever since Southern Weddings’  Volume 2 hit shelves (apparently I was under a rock their first year!)  I have been a huge advocate for the brand. It has been such a pleasure watching them grow, especially knowing the heart behind the magazine and their mission to cultivate of life full of love.

So when I received an email from Emily Thomas about being a part of one of their editorial you can only imagine what my reaction was. (Picture an 8-12ish year old girl going bananas because her favorite aunt bought her tickets to the new Jonathan Taylor Thomas movie  for her birthday, and then her mom told her she can wear new glitter eye shadow and maybe even lipgloss :)…please tell me you other 29 somethings remember those days of crushing hard on JTT!)

Anyway so clearly I was excited, and took their invitation very seriously. I wanted and needed every bloom to be perfect for them! They put together a spectacular vendor team and the result was gorgeously colorful, down to earth, and joyful. Just like the SW brand.

Thankful to Heather Hawkins for the gorgeous images and Christina Leigh Events for recommending us for the floral!

Enjoy these gorgeous images and take a peak at the behind the scenes video by Nathan Willis Wedding Films you can see baby Snow still in my belly!
