A beautiful & brisk November Wedding

Sunsets, fur shrugs and all the dancing for this beautiful couple…

They say rain is lucky on a wedding day, we say it makes for beautiful pictures

A rainy weather forecast is never what any bride and groom want to see, but after you see these beautiful photos from this rainy October wedding day you may just change your mind about that ;)

Circle M Farm's Inaugural Event: Erin + Jonathan's Vow Renewal

Circle M Farm's Inaugural Event: Erin + Jonathan's Vow Renewal

When Erin called us back in January and asked if we would be interested in having her and Jonathan's ten year vow renewal at Circle M, it took me about three tenths of a second to respond.... YES!! Erin has been such an amazing support, resource and friend through the process to get the venue up and running, I couldn't think of a better way to officially kick things off! Not to mention, y'all already know Erin's team from Erin Padgett Events put together an amazing night, so we had the opportunity to work with some amazing vendors.

Sophisticated + Organic Styled Shoot

Sophisticated + Organic Styled Shoot

To say that we've started 2017 off with a bang would be an understatement! Not only are the barn renovations starting to take major shape, but this styled shoot that we hosted was the most perfect way to get us excited about what we have in store for this year.

I have to give a big high five to Cheyenne Kidd of Cheyenne Kidd Photography and Katharine Mann of Katharine Mann Wedding and Event Planning for all of their creative super powers that really made this whole thing come together. And what's even better, Cheyenne is an old family friend of ours, and I remember very vividly when she first started dabbling in photography. To see her work today is truly inspiring! She has incredible passion and talent that emulates through her photographs [the proof is in the puddin, y'all]... with that being said, let's get down to business:

Rustic-Glam Winter Bridal Shoot at Circle M

Rustic-Glam Winter Bridal Shoot at Circle M

We were so excited when Heather, of Heather Beard Photography, asked us to host her annual styled shoot! We were even more excited when she used the words "Rustic-Glam". I immediately envisioned beautiful ball gowns, snowy fields, and clydesdales... then I remembered we live in North Carolina where we're lucky to see snow once a year and our 'clydesdale' is a mini horse named Theodore. However, Heather's vision for the shoot ended up being like 1,000 times better than my daydream anyways. Scroll down for proof, people.

Tis' the Season... That Perfect Gift for your Bride or Groom

Tis' the Season... That Perfect Gift for your Bride or Groom

Tis’ the season for gift giving!! Which presents a perfect opportunity for me to talk about bride and groom gifts! This topic holds a soft spot in my heart because one of the sweetest memories I have from my own wedding day was when I gave Nick the gift I got for him [more on that later]! 

However, leading up to that ‘sweet’ moment I undoubtedly stressed for weeks about finding the absolute most perfect gift that would make him think to himself, “Ding! Ding! My wife nailed it! She’s so awesome and thoughtful and I can’t believe I got this lucky.” I’m sure you can all relate…  That, of course, goes against every golden rule anyone would ever tell you about material things not shaping your relationship. But, at the crux of it, the ‘perfect’ gift is so much more than a material thing. The perfect gift is something [which doesn’t actually have to be a thing] that speaks to the both of you and represents a piece of your relationship that you both cherish. [Annnnd, I just lost every male reader… for those of you left, hold on, I don’t have it in me to stay emotional for much longer.]

We're crushing on so many WOMEN today

We're crushing on so many WOMEN today

We were so incredibly lucky that our first ever styled shoot* was with some of the most impressive ladies in the industry!

*Translation for those of you not in-the-know with all the wedding industry lingo [because that was me not too long ago]: a styled shoot is when wedding professionals join forces, use their combined creative juices and put together amazing spreads with table settings, flowers, furniture, models with amazing dresses, hair and makeup... basically the WHOLE.NINE.YARDS. All to be captured by a fabulous photographer and then shared with the world!
