Saturday, Katie and I met Amber at home while she was getting her hair done. There were so many girls there getting ready, but only Amber’s sister was actually in the wedding. It was crazy! I kept complimenting Amber on her taste in decor. The colors of her walls were bold! I was wishing she decided to get dressed there because the shots would have been amazing! I told her she had to get in her dress again when they get back so I can photograph her on the chair in their bedroom.
After the house, we headed to Hershey for the wedding and reception. We met Brett, his brother and the Dad’s for formals and to figure out where everything was.
As everyone walked into the ceremony room, they were greeted by Champagne and a bell choir. Not to mention the constant smell of Chocolate. (Heaven!)
I know this is getting long, but I have never seen such and exquisite reception as this. Every guest found their name on an ornament and once they found their table, they hung the ornament on a Christmas tree for Amber and Brett. In the corner sat a table about 20 ft long, covered in home made cookies and huge vases of chocolate. You took a stocking and filled it til your hearts content!
I could go on and on, but I will let the slideshow explain!
Have fun in Paris!
Did I not tell you!!!
Ok, I was having some fun, but you’ve got to admit…it is funny!
My son Kobe has to be one of the most enthusiastic present opener I have ever seen. I know a lot of it has to do with the sports stuff….but it cracks me up!!!!
I promise, after Saturday, I will have some new stuff on here!! 4 more weddings in fact…maybe some Christmas fun too!
But, the reason for this entry is to hopefully tug at your heartstrings….
Just over the weekend, a family from the school my husband teaches for, lost everything in a fire. EVERYTHING!! I can’t even imagine something like that happening. So, we are rallying up the troops and getting donations to help them since they have nothing.
Now, I am not asking you to send money, I just wanted to put out a reminder that there are so many families that have nothing this holiday season. If you feel it in your heart and you see something that makes you say, “Hey, I can help”…Do it! Whether it be Toys for Tots, the Salvation Army, anything….. Giving feels so good!
Please take care this Holiday Season!
Since the year is winding down and I am catching up on all my work to get everything out for Christmas, I am just now getting to my own Christmas cards. Every year for our family card, I usually dress my kids up and do a silly card. But, this year, I decided to keep it simple and and show how sweet my boys are. They are growing up so fast! So I wanted to share with you my gifts from God!
I know we are all so busy with trying to get our shopping done and writing our Christmas cards. Everything is so rush, rush, rush! Let us all remember that Jesus is the reason for the season!
I must have been out of my mind today! I met Stevie and Andy in Harrisburg for their engagement session. Holy Cow it was cold! We started down at the river front and I wasn’t sure we were gonna make it! The wind was constant and bitter cold! But, once we walked into the city, it was fine. We had such a good time talking and getting to know one another. Then we went to Fort Hunter for a change of scenery. There were a few events going on there that we had to avoid, but managed to get by.
I will know from now on to bring my gloves on a day like today!!
Here are a few of my favs…..
