Senior Pictures.

 A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to take some senior pictures for my new sister's younger brother.
Eager to jump on any opportunity I'm given, I gladly accepted this offer!
Their beautiful lakefront property (remember THESE pics??) seemed too perfect not to take advantage of, so around 9 am Gillis rolled out of bed with two outfits, three baseball bats, one glove, one gold medal, and a smile. 
And this is how I saw it: 

Despite the uncharacteristic early morning heat, he was a great sport. 
Thanks for makin' my job easy, Gillis!

Hope all is well with my dedicated blog readers,
 and that the sunshine and cool breeze is providing y'all rest.
All my love,

History Making History.

My big brother and his gorgeous fiance got hitched last weekend.
Friday night, my mom and dad threw a grand rehearsal dinner.
It was held at a historic home near downtown Tallahassee.
We had Creole food, bluegrass music, mint juleps, and kroquet (to name a few).

One thing that was really important to my brother was that all of his friends and family were in attendance. So, my focus for this set of photos was the guests. I really wanted you (my blog friends!) to get a feel for the event by seeing the people that were there.
Let me know what you think!

Hope you enjoyed them! 
It really was a fun evening. :)

Love Train.

 Last weekend Jonathan and Jackie tied the knot. 
The night before the nuptials, my aunt threw a fabulous Rehearsal Dinner party!
An old train depot with killer architecture and warm lighting made for some awesome photos.
Get ready for a lottttt of pictures..

Before my Mom and Aunt worked their design magic.
Aren't the ceilings sweet??
After my Mom and Aunt worked their design magic!
Quart sized Mason Jars held daisies in the center of the tables, and each guest had a pint sized Mason Jar to sip their beverage of choice.

Originally, I wanted to get a picture of every guest on the old train and create a photo guestbook for the couple, but I quickly ran out of steam (no pun intended). Plus I wanted to go inside and actually join the party!
The lovely couple. :)

While the food was finishing up, guests could take part in a game of corn hole.

Corn on the Cobb was served as an appetizer.

It was a big hit!

The main course featured barbeque ribs, beef brisket, loaded potato casserole, green beans, and rolls.
Needless to say, I was concerned about the fitting of my dress the next day.

Oh, and did I mention there were root beer floats..? Root beer floats! After all that food!
But let's be real, who can pass up a root beer float? They're a crowd favorite.

Day & Night.

The Groom with some of his good friends.
The bride with her almost sister & mother in-law.

It really was a grand time!
I betcha wish you were there. Just looking at these pictures, makes me jealous for you. 
In T-9 days we get to do it again!
Just with THIS couple and a different venue.
I can't wait.
