Weekend Recap

My weekend started off early! I left work Thursday afternoon and drove off to Lexington, Virginia for Justin and Mary’s Lighting Intensive at Big Spring Farm! Oh my word! It was a blast! The drive up there was absolutely gorgeous (except for getting stuck behind log trucks and fearing I’d be reenacting a scene from the Final Destination movies). We learned so much from these two powerhouses and I can’t wait to share more about my time with them! 🙂

On my way home from Lexington, I stopped by this cute little donut shop! They had the coolest creations and YES, they did all make it back home without me eating them! haha. richmond virginia wedding photographer

Saturday I had a wedding with my sweet friend, Karen! And before we started our drive we had to jump her car! I’m so proud of us for figuring out how to do it! Yay! 🙂 We were so blessed to only drive through a couple of rain showers! We also dodged the majority of the rain during the wedding day too! Such a blessing! And the couple’s day was gorgeous! richmond virginia wedding photographerMy Sunday was jam-packed! After church, I went to an Encouragement Session with this lovely photographer, Carter! We had such a great time and I can’t wait to share more about her session with you guys! When her session was done, I headed straight to a fun styled anniversary session with Anna of Dogwood Brides at Tredegar Iron Works! You guys, I cannot wait to share all the amazingness Ali of Events by Elizabeth Palmer created and the gorgeous florals by One Sweet Day in May! Just y’all wait!

Now that my weekend is done, I’m ready for a nap! haha. But alas, it’s off to work I go! Maybe I’ll get in bed early tonight?! 😉 Bahahaha. We’ll see!

Have a happy Monday, y’all! 🙂
