Happy Weekend!

Filed under: Just Because — Char @ 3:11 am

Cherries from a local produce stand in my Grandma’s antique bowl.

Cupcakes for a picnic. And you want a secret?!! Cake mix…you know from a box and all. I mean, I always believed that good cooks avoid boxes. But really, way too fine of a weekend to live by such a standard!

We have a wide open Saturday….our absolute favorite.

It is a holiday and it is the weekend…live it up!

Happy July fourth!

John & Emilee

Filed under: Wedding — Char @ 7:45 am

Idyllic. Yes, yes…that is the word that seems to fit their day.

The breeze stirred the willow trees and caused ripples on the lake. The air was moist and warm from early morning rain and a few rain drops still fell, but nobody seemed to mind. The smell of chicken barbecue wafted through the air and the sound of laughter tinkled as family and friends arrived. Daisies were gathered and placed in mason jars and yellow roses were on hand for the bride. As the afternoon crept towards evening, the festivities were ready to begin.

Simplicity and ease. In a way a classic…. at it’s finest. Yes, a day to celebrate John and Emilee and forever. But even more, a day to celebrate friendship, family, and the good life. John described it well when he asked me before the wedding…”Most important, capture the spirit and livelihood of the evening!”

It all took place on the gorgeous grounds of Willow Springs Estates. The girls from Beyond Belief Events did a fantastic job pulling together all the details and kept the day flowing from start to finish.

Emilee, your soft smile and gentle demeanor is a perfect combat for John’s huge grin and lively antics. Thank you for allowing me to join you on your wedding day. I wish you many moonlit truck rides, romps in the meadow, and shared strawberry daiquiris. I am certain your wedding day was only the start of the “good life” together.

John and Emilee scheduled a “first look” which gave us lots of time to wander the grounds before the wedding! Love this!
