Sunshine for days!

This weekend was fantastic! Other than Friday, it didn't have much structure and that's the way I like it. Friday, Caleb and I photographed a sweet family members intimate, courthouse wedding in Kentucky. Natalie is one of Caleb's many many cousins, and I'm so lucky to call her a friend, too! She's seriously beautiful, inside and out, and we were SO thankful to be part of their big day! I'm really thankful we snagged a few photos with them, too! ;)

Their ceremony took place in the cutest little town, on the stairs of the old courthouse. It was short and sweet, but their love for each other was so obvious.

I MEAN. COME ON NATALIE! GORGEOUS!




Saturday morning I photographed an Easter event that my church put on! We had over 1,000 preK-5th graders sign up for our "Chopper Drop" aka... thousands of candy filled Easter eggs being dropped from a helicopter!

We grabbed lunch with my SIL/BIL, then spent the remainder of the day being insanely productive around the house. We got rid of two huge bags of clothes to donate, made a huge dent in our never-ending laundry pile, and cleaned up the guest room a bit. We enjoyed a late dinner, and finally relaxed around 10PM.

Sunday after church, some of the youth group students stayed after to help assemble Easter egg baskets for 78 kids who are receiving life-saving treatment at Children's Hospital. We partnered with the Ronald McDonald house so their parents would have one less thing to worry about while they are staying in town. Because the only thing they should have to worry about is being there for their kiddos! We even got a quick tour of the facilities and it was really cool to see how well they love on these families while they are going through a difficult time.


Caleb and I spent the remainder of our day doing more laundry and relaxing...isn't that what Sunday's are for? I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and had a great weekend as well!

  9. I love when weddings aren't over the top and it's truly about the b&g. Those are the ones that mean the most. I can't imagine dropping the money some do on their day.

  10. Wow what gorgoeus wedding photos you captured!!! And EAster eggs being dropped from the sky...I am thinking how does that work? Won't half the eggs break open? But your picture proves otherwise, haha. Yay for getting stuff around the house done.
