Fall/Winter features! :)

Do you ever look back on a period of time and feel OVERWHELMINGLY blessed?! :) I find myself in that position right now!

Sometimes I get blinded by the everyday duties of taking care of a toddler, a husband, a house, a business, new clients, old clients, friends, my to-do list, my 2014 goals, blah blah blah. The daily routine takes ahold of my ability to notice the daily blessingsā€¦until the moment I stop and take 10 minutes to look in my rear-view mirror. On the last 6 months of AMAZING weddings, fabulous new friends, beautiful new clients and incredible moments as a business owner! :)

Today I am EXTRA thankful and UBER appreciative for all of the support, features and love that fellow vendors, brides, magazines and blogs share with me! :) Cheers to an amazing 2014 wedding season and hugs to everyone that has been there for me in the past! :)

Here are my fall/winter blog and magazine features that I am so proud and thankful for! :) HAPPY TUESDAY everyone! :)

Fall/Winter issue of (the beautiful) DAINTY OBSESSIONS magazine with the talented Lisa from Johnny and Dottie! :)

MN BRIDE + WI BRIDE features! :)

Alright….I know, I know……blog posts have been scarce the past few weeks (or ahem…….non existent)! But I promise I have about 90 billion rolls of film at the lab that I’m waiting to get back from 4 weddings, 6 engagement sessions and some snaps of Baby Zeke! :) So, I promise I won’t be silent around here long! :)

BUT, in the mean time….check out what the AMAZING LADIES at Minnesota BRIDE and Wisconsin BRIDE did in their recent Spring 2013 issues! :) MN BRIDE is featuring Alex and Chris’s beautiful, early summer, pretty-in-pink wedding from last June and WI BRIDE is featuring the super fun brunch wedding from the Enchanted Barn last May! :) They sure know how to put a week-long smile on my face!!!! :)

Grab your favorite cup of coffee and pick you up a copy of the mags at your local Target….I mean, what else do we have to do on these gloomy, rainy days?! :)
