Nick + Lindsay = Simply Beautiful

Any betrothed couple will be the first to tell you hands down that wedding planning is really not that fun! It's stressful, time consuming & chaotic. Some of the things that you may consider are, live music vs. DJ, food - appetizers, entrees, wedding gown, tuxedo, groomsmen, bridesmaids, wardrobe for the wedding party & your parents, guest list, cake and the list goes on & on...

Now on top of all this, everyone - friend or not, married or not, will have great advice to give you in preperation for the big day.

By the time the wedding comes around your emotions are probably all over the place & you're questioning your sanity or maybe wishing you'd kept it sweet & simple, like Nick & Lindsay.

This beautiful couple planned their wedding all the way from Madison, Wisconsin, over 2,000 miles away from the little town of Lockeford, CA.

Can you believe that the day of the wedding was the first time that they saw their wedding site? Luckily it all worked out perfectly.

For Lindsay it started with a beautiful gown, that her mom convinced her to buy. 

She did her own hair & makeup for the big day.

With a little help from mom she's ready to walk down the aisle. 

The sweet wedding ceremony ended with a kiss. 

The newlyweds took a moment to themselves



 & Beautiful 

Lindsay personally handmade these wine glass charms for each & every one of 
their guests. See? There's even one with my name on it. Thanks Lindsay! 

 This delightful cupcake table sat underneath the Oak tree where the reception took place. 

Imagine that, a wedding that's simply beautiful.

The Cute Construction Guy

My husband was out of town this weekend, so I decided to take matters into my own hands & start that BIG CONSTRUCTION project that we've been wanting to do on our house. I asked around & someone suggested that I call this guy... 
Conner looked trustworthy enough

He was handy with the tools

The big machines didn't scare him one bit

Sure, he took a few breaks here & there...

In the end, I'm not sure he knew what he was doing, but he sure looked CUTE doing it!
