Walking into this weekend with a smile on our faces! Oh, what sweet couples have come into our lives. 👰🏼🤵🏻 ⠀ We consider it a huge blessing (and responsibility) to serve our J&A couples well during their entire time with us. They trust us with one of the most precious, irreplacable days of their lives. ⠀ ⠀ To all our J&A couples, this one's for you. We love you guys! You are some of the most incredible people we've ever met, and we love watching all the adventures life is taking you on! 💕💕💕
Diane & Darrel's intimate wedding ceremony at St Mary of the Visitation is on fresh on the blog! Seriously, could these two be any more adorable? There's a link in our profile all ready for you to click! ⠀
Stunning in its elegant simplicity.
There were a bunch of super amazing wedding vendors over at our house for coffee this morning, so it's the perfect time to catch up on one of our #jacoffeeadventures from our last trip! ☕️ ⠀ Black Cup Coffee in Anchorage was a delicious treat after cruise port coffee shops. It came in with a #jacoffeefavorites title, partly because we loved the atmosphere so much! 👌🏻
Featured!!⠀ ⠀ Maddie & Russell's wedding at @meadowcreekfarmweddings is being featured on @southerncelebrationsmag this week, and we couldn't be more excited for this precious couple! ⠀ ⠀ Their wedding day was filled to the brim with special details and memorable family moments. There's a link in our profile, and we invite you to check it out!⠀
Here is some floral love for your Monday! InBloom knocked it out of the park, as always. Diane's bouquet this weekend couldn't have been more stunning. This might be one of my top favorite bouquets to date! I love the variety and the depth of color in every detail. Happy Monday!! 💕💐 What are you up to today?
⠀ It was a sweet, beautiful afternoon for Diane & Darrel's wedding! I joined them for their ceremony at the ever-gorgeous St Mary of the Visitation Catholic Church, and we took the time for a few portraits afterward. Their faith is a major part of their lives, and it was beautiful seeing them enjoy these moments together in place so special to them! Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Kaiser!⠀ ⠀ Venue: St. Mary of the Visitation Catholic Church⠀ Photographer: @joelandamber ⠀ Florals: In Bloom Floral Design Studio @markandron123 ⠀ Makeup Artist: @nancyfinneganmua ⠀ Dress Boutique: @mtandc_bridal
This winter is already looking bright! 💕 Baby Palmer is joining the team in January 2019, and we couldn't be more thankful or excited.⠀ ⠀ It's been a 6 year journey of waiting, praying, hope, and heartache for this miracle. We believe in God's providence and perfect plan for our lives, and we've done our best to live every day to the fullest as we waited for His timing.⠀ ⠀ Even as we share this joy now, our hearts truly embrace those who are still waiting. We've been there and know how it feels to see one more we're having a baby! announcement pop up. We see you, sweet friends. It's hard. We hope your joy will come true with our whole hearts for you, and we hope that you find God's peace during this time.⠀ ⠀ We're ever so grateful for this gift of a family. We know it truly is a gift that can't be taken for granted.
When do I need to start getting ready on the wedding morning?⠀ ⠀ This is a subjective question to answer, but it's one we get quite often! ⠀ ⠀ When you need to start getting ready is going to look different for each bride. Some brides just want to finish everything up as quickly as possible, and others want to have a laid back morning with plenty of time to socialize.⠀ ⠀ Even with so much variation, there are a few principles that you can use to guide your decision on how much time to allow on the wedding morning. If you're not sure how much time is too little (or too much), check out the link in our profile for our latest blog post with tips to plan the wedding morning schedule that's right for you!
I was in the middle of my devotions one morning when this verse really jumped out at me. 🙌🏻 ⠀ Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6-7⠀ ⠀ The phrase rooted and built up is beautiful, and my mind drifted to how that can also be applied to marriage. 💦 ⠀ Our marriages need to be rooted in a 1 Corinthians 13 kind of love. The roots of love are those essential things that can't be compromised in a healthy relationship. Trust, understanding, goodwill, faithfulness, patience. ✨ ⠀ Our marriages also need to have a love that is built up. Relationships take intentional and constant work, especially one as unique and close as the marriage relationship. 🌿 ⠀ Read more about how our marriages need to be rooted and built up on this week's Marriage Mocha on the blog! 👆🏼There's a link in our profile, and we hope you'll be blessed by it. 💕
