the after party.

Well, the party may be officially over, but we’re still celebrating over here at 360 E. Magolia in our little house. However, this is the beginning of the end of the wedding blog. I’ve made it down the aisle, but I have just a few more things to recount before shutting the door on “Don’t Eat The Flowers.” Look forward to picture of every step of the dress since it’s finally been revealed, honeymoon pics, etc.

BUT I thought a link to pictures might be fun. If you couldn’t make it, Wingate and Russ Feltman will both help you relive it.

And then, here is a little memory of the night. Thanks Russ. (Russ Feltman)


Meet Wingate.

The Photographer!

After a lots of phone talking, sharing ideas and two photo shoots, here are our OFFICIAL engagement pictures! This shoot was a great time hang out with our photographer, Wingate Downs, a seasoned professional. It was obvious he could handle just about any style human being and any type of atmosphere. (Not to mention, he used to have a sweet ponytail and drools over road bikes as much as David does) We loved hanging out with this guy. I’m pretty sure they don’t come much sweeter than him!

These are just a few of my favorites and their Athens Flair makes them just what we wanted! Thanks Wingate!

A friend of pros

3 friends, a fiance, and the best afternoon ever.  I wish I could accurately capture the fun photo shoot with three of my most creative buds.  Weeks before, Meagan Gibson had thrown out the idea practicing engagement pictures on us, and since the moment she mentioned it, I was pumped. Early that day, Holly (all-time best assistant) and Meagan met at my house to start the “wardrobe process” which consisted of throwing together every closet near by until they found the perfect colors and such. Then, Jamie met us outside and we all piled in Meagan’s car to start the photog adventure. 3 outfits, 3 locations and these were the product. However, these pictures did not happen without massive allergic attacks to tall grass, Holly paddling around in a fishing boat to get Meagan and Jamie the perfect angles, and even trespassing and befriending a herd of noisy heifers. Not to mention, having to make David towel off between locations to keep his clothes dry. (hehe) A shoot like this one is just easier when your friends are the ones making you laugh and smile and even kiss. It just feels so natural. So, if you want a taste of this sweet photo shoot check out:  A little seed, A little water.

And thank you, thank you to Meagan, Jamie and Holly. Already miss y’all.
