Exhausted but thankful!

Friday, Caleb and I took another half day from work to photograph another amazing wedding. The couple (Nic and Kayla - yes, her name was Kayla and she was pretty stinkin awesome) was amazing, the location was insanely cool, and the weather couldn't have been better. I love when the bride and groom make photos a priority! It makes our job so much more fun!




Their reception was so much fun. Kayla basically forced us to enjoy ourselves (and put our cameras down) when her entire family called us onto the dance floor - it made our night! So many guests thanked us for being there and paid us SO many incredible compliments. We honestly left feeling so humbled and so thankful! We headed to a hotel in Dayton where we stayed the night - since our Saturday bride would be getting ready there!


Alyssa and Nathaniel had such a beautiful wedding! Seriously everything was gorgeous. Her dress, her hair, her cathedral veil, and AH! She even made her own bouquet. I couldn't believe how gorgeous the peonies were. My pupils were replaced with tiny red hearts all day!





We got to ride around in the venue's Gator for our shoot with them and had ourselves a blast!


Sunday morning, we slept in. Kind of felt bad skipping church, but we didn't even set an alarm to wake up. It was much needed, though! Imagine my surprise as Caleb and I are cleaning the main floor, and our doorbell rings! It was my brother with the prettiest YELLOW roses!! He also brought Caleb some candy. He walked in and thanked us for being some of the most prominent people in his life. I couldn't help but cry! How thoughtful?! I'm so grateful for the man he's becoming! I just couldn't believe he was getting ME a gift even though he's the one graduating this week! Thursday can't come soon enough!!

We also spent our afternoon relaxing with Erin and Jared - playing some of our favorite board games! It may have been our last one before their sweet babe makes his arrival, so we really enjoyed ourselves!

Hope everyone had a fun weekend!
