Our Fourth of July weekend!

Our long weekend consisted of photographing two weddings, little sleep, and lots of fun. Honestly it was such a great weekend, but I'm absolutely exhausted right now. I haven't been this tired in a really long time. Ever feel like you need a weekend to recoup from your weekend? Yeah, that's me right now...but I'm so thankful for all the fun we had!

Thursday evening we headed to Caleb's brothers place to hang out with his family...we had a blast setting off fireworks and hanging out on their front lawn for hours just laughing like crazy.

Friday I got an early start to the day and headed out to photograph the first wedding of the weekend! We knew a few of the guests (as well as the bride) at the wedding so we knew it would be a really fun, relaxed day! The bride even invited me to Chipotle with her bridesmaids for lunch! Talk about awesome?!

One of the gals from the youth group was there and we had a blast taking a few selfies and dancing the night away (yes, its a great job that I have)!!

& of course, a bride & groom selfie!

We got home, cleared off our memory cards, got a few hours of rest and did it all over again the next day!

This lovely couple hired Razzi's to come and put on a special fireworks show JUST for their wedding, so it was awesome getting to see a whole fireworks show for the fourth, even while we worked! They had multiple favors for their guests like USA cookie cutters attached to a bag of soft baked cookies (nom!!!), american flag flip flops for the tired feet on the dance floor, a photo booth and adorable Ohio shaped koozies.

Sunday, we got breakfast with Caleb's parents before they headed back home to Arkansas, heard a great message at church, then headed to Columbus to see a few friends for a bit!

I hope everyone had an awesome, fun & safe weekend!!!


  1. I love seeing all the wedding dresses from the wedding pictures you post. And I think I've said that to you before....oops ;)

    Why don't we have today off to recover?! I could use about 12 more hours of sleep.

  2. Did the bride get anything free from chipotle? When I went with a bridal party years ago to Jimmy Johns, they serenaded us and gave us free drinks.

  3. Photo credzzz ;) I am 100% in love with those bridesmaid dresses!! So unique and adorable! Glad you guys survived another double header!!!

  4. I feel us on needing a weekend to recover from your weekend! At least you guys were able to get in some family and friend time despite a wedding double header! The wedding shots look great, and fun that the one couple had their own firework display!

  5. awh that sounds so awesome! and so cool you photographed 2 cool weddings this weekend. those favors were such a good idea! and who doesn't LOVE cookies? exactly. haha i was literally thinking "i wonder if people get married on the 4th ever. do people come to the wedding? are people in town?!" so my question was answered! haha sounds like an awesome weekend :)

  6. Dang lady sounds like you had a busy weekend! But as busy as it was it looks like you had so much fun and that's all that matters. I love your dress in that last picture!

  7. What a great weekend! How cool that the couple had fireworks at their wedding! :)

  8. I can't wrap my mind around the busy-ness of your life! After two weddings, you went to Columbus to hang out?! No wonder you need a weekend to recover from your weekend. :) I'm glad you had an awesome time! Also, having the Razzis put on fireworks for your wedding is an absolute DREAM. That's the coolest thing ever.

  9. I'm dying over the second wedding - the dress and the bridesmaid dresses. Tell me you got the details from the bride?!?

  10. I'm kind of obsessed with bride #2's dress. What a whirlwind weekend you had!


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
