Here is a little sneak peek of Craig Blackmer & Shannie Phillips Destination Wedding that took place last Saturday, March 21st in Destin, FL. The couple rented a house where the bridal party & family stayed. The weekend included plenty of relaxing time on the beach with some entertaining scimboarding, a private rehearsal dinner at Pompano Joe’s, an intimate ceremony on the white sandy Mirmar beach and of course Photos photos photos! The Bridal Party portraits were shot in the Baytown Warf area of SanDestin. Craig & Shannie also had pre-planned for a quick change after the ceremony (Shannie wearing her mother’s dress), so they could get some fun photos of them jumping into the (freezing cold) ocean…which then ended in them jumping into the beach house’s heated pool! ๐Ÿ™‚ What I didn’t plan on was for me to end up in the ocean as well… but I’ll do whatever it takes to get the shot!!

I’m am looking forward to the reunion with the family & bridal party. We had a blast!!


Brad & Linsey tied the knot this past Saturday at Monelle’s at Historic Lillie Belles Venue in Downtown Franklin, TN. Here are a few photos from the wedding. They are the sweetest couple & the day couldn’t have been better. With a snowy mix the weekend before, we were all ecstatic with the sunny 70 degree day! Congratulations Brad & Linsey!

Linsey’s Grandparents made them a rice-krispy treat groom’s cake! They said they make shapped rice-krispy cakes for each grandkids’ major events. Wish I would have thought of this for my wedding! YUM!!


Luke‘s parents just brought home our 4 newest brother & sisters, our adopted siblings from over seas. Sophie (9), Izzie & Zach (7), and Abby (3). We are head over heels in love! They arrived on Feb. 28th and we have been spending a lot of family time loving on the kids and introducing them to all of their firsts, like ice cream! …they didn’t like how cold it was ๐Ÿ™‚ I took a photo shoot last Thursday of all of Beth & Jon’s kids, with more pictures coming after our family beach trip in April. Check out more info from their adoption experience on their website, Adopting Miracles.

P.S. Sophie LOVES Cohen and handles him like she has had 5 children of her own already. He likes the attention too… ๐Ÿ™‚
