I've been waiting for this one. I took Emily and Tony's Engagement pictures last year and had such a blast. The wedding was just the same. I just have to say that I LOVE the way that Tony treats Emily...such a gentleman. He was so attentive to all of her needs. She was so tender with him. They were both a bit teary-eyed as they saw each other for the first time before the ceremony. We had plenty of time to get everything done...including going downtown.
The weather was a typical Indiana day...unpredictable. It rained on and off all day and it was super windy. Luckily it was somewhat warm and Emily was up for anything (my fav).
side note: This is me at my Aunt's house on my 4th or 5th birthday. She always made me the best birthday cakes and custom clothes...she would even make a matching dress for my Cabbage Patch kids...seriously...she is that awesome! Love you Aunt Bev!
I love taking pictures at birthday parties! The lighting is usually horrible, I don't get super artsy, but I do love the memories that I capture of the day. Especially, when the kiddies are so little. I always love looking back at the pictures my Dad took at my parties. So here are some pics of some of my favorite people in the world. Friends of integrity, service and love. Their little Levi is so precious. Plus, there were TONS of balloons! My kids were going crazy with all of the fun. What a fantastic idea! Love you guys!
My great friend, Amie, wrote the following poem for her twin boys. As you read, think about a young mom, who happens to sound a bit lit Drew Berrymore, and the struggles/adventures a mama has with little ones...
take 2 and call me in the morning
2 babies into 2 boys
2 years to mark the passage of the days
you've grown up and out
and i have grown in
to a mother
2 ways to show
your love and to show your displeasure
we dance and laugh
you read and write
and eat all of your dinner
and watch with bright blue eyes
the world around you
and the other
your head with less hair fits perfectly
into the corner of my neck
the way you stomp your feet
when you are pleased
and say nigh nigh when the
day is done
makes me want
to do it all over again
we are good and bad
moments i wish i could pick up and put
into a box
to take out later
later i will laugh
because now i am mad and busy and preoccupied
with getting through the day
such is the way with 2
but 2 is better than 1
there is no other way
but with 2
i love you both in
ways i cannot say
i am you and you are me and
i need you and you need me and
i am a mother for 2 years today
and i am blessed
Check out one of Amie's super cool tables. She and her mom have a booth at Midland Arts and Antiques...they're superbad...like the kind of decorators that people should hire!
What a day! Leah and Kiran decided to create a spectacular day by having not one, but two, ceremonies to honor the traditions in their lives. They had a Hindu ceremony in the morning and then a Christian ceremony in the evening. Both were at the amazing Scottish Rite. Leah has such an eye for detail. I could NOT have pulled this off without the help of 2 extra shooters. Morgan and Geno (833-5008) totally rocked it. Here's sneak peek. I'll have a slide show with more details shortly!
