SO, yeah, I am STILL terrible at this blog-writing thing. Bear with me. This time, it’s only been 3 months between entries, as opposed to my regular 6 months or more! 🙂 

I have been so super-busy lately, but that, I guess, is not so abnormal anymore. I really wouldn’t have it any other way. C.P. Mac is like, my life. I mean, besides Jesus, Malachi, family–you know, all that jazz. G-d has really blessed me and He’s continuing to do so. I am doing what I love, meeting people that I fall in love with, being apart of the most beautiful moments, running my own business, and supporting our small little family (ie. Malachi and me–hehe). 

On to the good stuff: 

Three weddings since my last entry. 

THREE. I am SO far behind.  

So, there was Alice + Andrew’s wedding in December. December is personally one of my favorite months of the year, because it’s all Christmas music, and shopping, and eggnog, and lights and gifts…perfect month for a wedding and Alice + Andrew took everything beautiful about that time of year and made it their own. 

Alice and her mom, Helen, are two of the loveliest women you will ever meet. I mean lovely in terms of physical beauty, but also in the way that when you are with them, you feel like the most loved person in the world. 

Alice contacted me last June, but we didn’t get around to scheduling a meeting for a few months. We met at Panera one Saturday afternoon for lunch, and oh my goodness. Sweetest mother/daughter ever. I always pay for my clients/potential clients—I love treating people to coffee/lunch/whatever. Well, Mrs. Helen would have none of that and insisted on treating ME—then, she bought me a shortbread cookie. THEN, she bought a shortbread cookie for me to bring home to Malachi, and THEN she bought two more shortbread cookies in case Malachi really liked them. I mean, seriously? Could you get any nicer? 

Anyway, Alice + Andrew planned a Christmas wedding, but Christmas in a classy, simple sense. Champagne dresses, evergreen accents…and it was definitely a chilly enough day to make it feel like Christmas. Beautiful wedding, beautiful people. I just wish Alice + Andrew weren’t living in Mobile now, because I would so love to hang out with Alice (I guess Andrew could join us)!

Alice before seeing Andrew for the First Time. I love that you can just see the nervous/excited anticipation on her lovely face!

Alice + Andrew share a private moment in the sanctuary together (you know, private with the exception of me and my camera anyways) before their "I do's"

Looking out at the rain from the picture window in the reception room. Snow, rain--same concept for a winter wedding. It worked 🙂

Super-cool chair plus amazing light coming from this hall of windows paired with a couple of beautiful smiles equals one awesome photograph

Might I say that I ADORE the way Alice is looking at her dad in this photo. It is just a beautiful moment!

 

Every bride dreads having it rain on their wedding day, but Alice + Andrew were such good sports. Right after their send off (running through Alabama shakers–despite being an Auburn girl, I was a good photographer and didn’t complain :D)…

 they had me follow them to their grandparents house where they were going to be packing their bags for the honeymoon. We grabbed a couple of umbrellas and captured a few shots in the rain so they could remember every part of their wedding day. Because the rain makes the flowers grow, as my son says. Always remember that. We have to have the rain–take hold of it, and produce beautiful images from it 🙂 Translate that into a general parallel and you have a good life motto.
