Leon & Kate

Filed under: Wedding — Char @ 3:35 pm

The day dawned warm with light gray clouds scattered across the sky.

As she walked into the church,  she took a deep. Her eyes danced.

Her girls bustled around her. Primping and prepping and laughing and doing what bridesmaids do on the big day.

And she smiled softly.

Reds shoes were perfect for her.

Kate is sweet and kind and it is easy to see Leon loves her with his everything.

As the rain gently pitter-pattered outside, Kate and Leon promised forever.  It was clear family and friends shared a deep affection and loyalty for Kate and Leon.

Stop here to see their slideshow.

Leon and Kate, it was an honor to be included in your day. Many, many blessing to you both.

Thankful…

I am thankful.

No fancy words. Just thankful.

Okay, I am thankful for peppermint gum, little boys kisses, newly sharpened pencils, rainy afternoons, homemade macaroni and cheese, and red scarves.

I know family photos can feel like a lot to take on.

Will my kids be happy? Will it be over nap time? Is it worth the effort required? And then the biggie…what should we wear?!!

Thanks to everyone for coming out!

And that’s all for now. Smile.

Daryl & Lindsay

Filed under: Wedding — Char @ 10:32 am

Some people glow. Glow from the inside.

The glow sparkles from the eyes and shines in the laughter. It shimmers and dances. It’s radiant. It’s vibrant.

It leaves you feeling like, well….I like this person. There is something real here and it is good.

It’s heartwarming and winsome and just good. All at the same time.

Double this and add forever…

It’s beautiful.

Daryl and Lindsay are some of the most warm, genuine, and open people I have ever met. And I am pretty sure everybody else would say the same.

Thrilled and so happy were these two. Their day reflected them and was perfect.

It was a truly an honor! Thank-you and I wish you two the absolute VERY best.

Thanks to Larry from Weaver Images for working with me rocking his camera.

Stop here to see more of their day.

Okay, let me introduce to you Brittany.

Brittany has great eyes and a super-duper smile and loves to talk and make others laugh.

She smiles at the sunshine and the great outdoors and knows that movie nights with friends is superb quality time.

And she reflects. Just reflects. Reflecting time is good.

She loves her family and owns field hockey.

And after graduation she is heading to college and plans on earning her bachelor’s in nursing.

So this is Brittany. Meet pretty Brittany.
