I’m back with my first blog post of 2014. For those if you who don’t know my mother recently passed that the beginning of this year. I am getting caught up today and will be blogging sessions all this week and next staring with the amazing wedding of Gracie and Andrew!
What a day! I’d love to say, a perfect beautiful November sunny day – but NO… rain, cold and everything this couple wasn’t expecting. LOL I only laugh because besides that EVERYTHING about this DIY wedding was perfection! Thanks to one creative bride and Angelica McDonnell of Green Orchid Events. Gracie has to be one of the most talented individuals I’ve ever met. Every details was her idea and custom created with her very own hands. This totally worked out in our favor too! Since it poured the ENTIRE day I offered them a reshoot for their couples portraits. I was able to arrange for Men’s Warehouse to donate Andrew’s full tux rental at no additional charge and since Gracie had made her bouquet and Andrew’s boutonniere with fabric flowers we had the exact set up we would have on their wedding day. Mind you the day of our re-shoot at the Springs Preserve just happened to be freezing too! LOL but it all worked out. Gracie and Andrew are now expecting their first bundle of joy and its a BOY!
Congratulation’s Gracie and Andrew! Be blessed and Keep Kissing.

“what a beautiful wedding!” Gracie was the most amazing bride. Despite awful weather the smile never left her face and she was determined to enjoy her day. Which she did along with everyone else.
The decorations were beautiful! The fact that she made most of them, even more phenomenal!
We are so lucky to have her as part of our family!
The pictures are gorgeous and remind me of so many wonderful memories of that day!

admin - I just saw this comment Kaye. But you are absolutely right. Gracie is one in a million! By the way my middle name is Kaye. Kaye was my grandmothers name. 🙂 She was my favorite person in the world so you must be special too!
