B man - 7 years old - Murfreesboro Photographer

My handsome little man is officially 7 years old!
Each day that passes I see more, and more of my personality shining through in him.  (which brings tons of laughs daily!)
He's my little engineer, and speaks sarcasm well like his Mama.  :D  
He keeps his heart on his sleeve just like his sister & me, and always shows God's love to others as I teach them this everyday.

When I was just 17 years old I gave my life to our Lord & Savior.   That date was a 'meant to be' kind of day because 11 years later I would welcome my son on that very same day.   A Bible given to me by my grandfather & grandmother that is dated with my son's birthday is forever a symbol of how much our loved ones are still very much with us.  :)

Just like his sister, he was my answered prayer.   Beyond grateful & blessed to call him my son!

HAPPY 7th BIRTHDAY to my little LOVE!!!

Lindsey & Cory: Circleville, Ohio wedding {Columbus, Ohio Wedding Photographer}

On September 19th, my sweet cousin Lindsey married her best friend, Cory.   I had the honor of capturing their first day as Mr. & Mrs. in our families hometown of Circleville, Ohio. 
A quick awesome fact about Circleville..... it's the home of the annual Pumpkin Show!   The best fall festival that is always the 3rd weekend in October!  For more info check out the website, The Circleville Pumpkin Show.   And make sure you put it on your bucket list of 'must-do's' if you've never been!  :)

Lindsey & Cory's big day started off with some wind, a little rain, but ended with plenty of sunshine.   It was a gorgeous event held at the Emmett Chapel United Methodist Church.
The day was filled with lots of family, friends, and love.



Here is their wedding story...




The day started with being pampered at Bella Zari hair studio & day spa in downtown Circleville.  All the ladies had their hair done beautifully.  Lindsey's sister did all of the ladies make up and everyone was gorgeous!




























Daddy's first look at the beautiful bride.




    


This special moment was their 'not so sneak peek' before the wedding.   They shared letters to one another, and a few giggles!










Brides grandparents, and my great Aunt & Uncle.  <3




They had the cutest trio of flower girls!


The moment he sees his bride for the first time.








The bride & groom exchanged traditional vows and they wrote each other personal vows that brought some tears, and a few giggles. 





As they were pronounced Mr. & Mrs. they literally danced down the aisle!
















On to the reception....





Brides younger brother was the DJ. He had a mic & wore it out.  :D








All of the catering was graciously done by the church members.   It was very yummy home cooked style food!





These cakes were made by another cousin of ours that is only 15 years old!   She is an amazing cake baker and decorator that enters cakes into contests for her local fair!   These cakes were AMAZING for it being the first time ever to conquer such a big task!   And they tasted soooo good!  :)








One of my most favorite moments of a wedding..... 
the Father & Daughter dance.

























Lindsey & Cory, I wish you a life time of happiness and laughter!
May you always walk hand in hand, side by side.  :)
Love to you both!




*Special thanks to all of our family for helping out, and for making this day for Lindsey & Cory a wonderful day to remember!   It photographed beautifully!  :)
Also, a big huge thank you to my second shooter, the one and only, Uncle Todd.  ;)
