The portraits in this wedding are some of my favorites ever.  Yes, EVER. And the sweet photos of this couple and their adorable little girl make me wish my son Charlie had been at our wedding…you know, if he had been born yet.  This is one wedding to swoon over with your favorite cup of coffee or tea.  Sip slowly and savor…

{advice for planning couples}
I think the best advice is to plan a wedding that reflects who you truly are as a couple. It is a day in your life together and should feel as such, on that day, and when you look back on it.

We have a large family and, at the time a daughter (we now have a son too), and it was very important to have our wedding reflect the importance our family plays in our lives. We involved our parents in the ceremony, as well as my husband’s godfather, and my brother is the one that married us.  We also included our daughter in the ceremony by giving her a necklace from both of us. From the beginning, we knew that we wanted her to be a big part of that day because she was the one that had already made us a family. Every detail of the wedding was made with our family in mind. I chose a dress that would allow me to play with my daughter, we picked food that was kid-friendly (as we have over 15 nieces and nephews).  We love the outdoors and have simple tastes and also wanted the wedding to reflect that. 
 
I’ve poured over these photos for hours and I’m still not tired of them.  Just so so lovely.  And congrats to the couple on their second little one!

     Surprised this fella with a solo ice cream date after school today and it was good. The company and the ice cream.   Each one of my kids teaches me different things in different ways. Today this one taught me that two tantrums and a skipped nap do not a bad day make. Because despite his seriously trying my patience today we actually had a pretty good one. And his smiles are just the best ❤️ / Alternative caption: I want his bangs  #mommacalvinselfies #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood
