I’ve been a bit MIA around this blog lately. I hadn’t even opened my laptop since sometime last Friday! But now I’m back and I have a wedding peek for you – a very quick peek – and a bit about what I’m up to.
My girls and I took a trip to Indiana over the weekend. My hubby has cousins who live there and we love to spend time with them. This trip was a working trip for me – I got to help my friend Belle shoot a wedding 🙂 My girls got to spend time with their friends. My husband stayed home to pour some concrete since the weather actually warmed enough to get the job done. Belle rode along with us and we left around noon on Saturday. The wedding was Sunday and we were there to shoot from 9:30 till the bride and groom left around 8:00 that evening. I left the wedding right after and picked up my girls and headed for home. We arrived after midnight to a husband/daddy very glad to have his girls back.
Those big weekends about do me in – thus I let this blog slide for a few days.
Here’s a shot of the flowers on the cake. The whole wedding was beautiful. In a neat old barn, burlap and chandeliers, vintage goodness and beautiful flowers. I can’t wait to show you more but I think it’s only polite to let the bride and groom see the pics first, don’t you?
The gifts for the bridal help were wrapped so cute – I shot a close-up of this one at the rehearsal because I thought it was so pretty. And I’m sharing it now because it just happened to be the gift the Bride handed me on Sunday evening! I was so shocked and thrilled to get a gift! I was just a back-up photographer and I was getting paid to be there and do my job! But this bride thought of including a gift just like everyone else in the wedding got. Talk about covering all the little details 😉
And detailed she is. I knew the bride but not overly well. But she paid enough attention to know just what I would like. Notecards with crowns on them – anyone who knows me well at all knows I have a thing for crowns.
This week has pretty much consisted of sleeping, laundry, piano lessons, voice lessons, packing and shipping an order, answering a few emails (with my phone cause I didn’t open my computer), a bit of school work, hosting Bible study (which meant I had to do a bit of cleaning and bake some cookies) some more sleeping and a bit of book reading. Yes, I’ve been taking it easy. Now it’s time to craft some new things, make some pillows, make some pouffes, get ready for the big kid’s clothing sale I help host every Spring(which means I have to wade through the pile of my kids outgrown clothes and get them priced) and focus on my upcoming events in May. Life never gets boring and if it does there are always more books to be read 😀
I hope you all have been having a great week! I will share more wedding photos as soon as I can!(which means I have to get busy editing)
