Christmas at the Inn…

Merry, Merry Christmas Eve!! Have I mentioned before that Christmas is my FAVORITE?! Well, it is.  I’m even tracking Santa right now. This year I was honored to be asked to decorate one of the gorgeous rooms at the beautiful Inn at Irwin Gardens in Columbus, Indiana. This historic mansion really doesn’t need much to be dressed up, but is oh so pretty when it is. Last week the public was invited to tour the decorated rooms at the inn, as […]

Lot’s of cute little ones came to the shoot and I can’t wait to share her beautiful photos with you! In the […]

Now that the ‘wedding season’ is slowing down a bit, I am reflecting on the amazing adventures that my team and I have had this year. Truly, it was the best! This next ‘real’, and might I say absolutely beautiful, wedding that we helped with was for two love birds: Anne-Marie and Chad. They chose to hold their “Starry Nights” themed nuptials at the beautiful Irwin Gardens in Columbus, Indiana in May. I can’t wait to share these gorgeous pictures […]

{Invitation: Happiness}

I absolutely love, love wedding invitations! Whenever I get one in the mail from a bride, I savor it on my countertop for at least a couple hours, just glancing at it once in awhile. Then, when I can’t stand it anymore, I grab the thick {always extra postage needed} envelope and carefully open it as not to damage its contents. When I get to the RSVP envelope, I actually say out loud, to myself usually, “Duh, I’m totally going […]

Trying to be Martha…

In the February issue of Martha, there they were….staring at me in all their deliciousness. {Coconut Thumbprint Cookies with Salted Caramel} mmm…. So, naturally I had to make them and say to myself, “I will just eat a couple, then take the rest around to friends and family tomorrow.” Totally justifiying the whole thing. But in reality, I probably ate over half the batch. But WORTH IT! They are amazing and I encourage you to make them yourself. These would […]
