Morgan and Mike were married at the gorgeous Barn at Smith Lake on a beautiful fall afternoon in November. They are high school sweethearts, so this day had been a long time coming.

It was the week of their wedding. Laura’s name popped up on my phone. When I heard her voice, I immediately knew. COVID-19 had hit. She explained that Drew had tested positive for COVID-19, even though he didn’t have any symptoms. I heard the sadness and frustration in her voice. The wedding they had been […]

This post has been a long time coming. I’ve thought about writing this post for months now, and each time it comes out a little differently. I’ve gone through several different titles for this post, including “I Quit,” “New Beginnings,” “Moving On,” “I’ve Decided It’s Time to Say Goodbye,” and so many others. This will […]

This proposal is one that is very near and dear to my heart. Kathleen is one of my dearest friends, and I was so honored to be in on this secret! Kathleen and I met at Auburn and were in the same sorority. We lived across from each other on the sorority hall, and when […]

Brooke and Blake’s wedding day was unlike any other wedding day I’ve ever been a part of. They had been planning their dream wedding since last summer, but when COVID-19 started spreading rapidly, they had to change their plans quickly. They took what started at a guest list of at least 200 people and had […]

Meaghan and Jace are two of the most down to earth, easy to get along with people I have ever met! As a matter of fact, when Meaghan and I met for her consultation, we spent around two hours just talking and getting to know each other and talking about all the excitement of her […]
