Already dreaming of cooler temperatures? Me too!

If you're anything like me, just a few weeks into the blistering hot temperatures and I'm already dreaming of fall.  You see, I didn't always live in North Carolina.  My love for the fall and seasonal changes comes from my time spent growing up in Indiana.  Though I consider the QC my home today, part of the reason I choose Charlotte as my home 17 years ago was because of the beautiful season changes the city provides.  That, and that I might upon occasion still see some snow without being plagued with it for weeks on end!  With that being said, it is only fitting that today's post include some beautiful images of Karissa and Ryan's wedding this January.  It also just so happened to be the one weekend that we received a little snow to make this winter wonderland wedding all the more special.  I also want to take this time to send out much love as they are expecting their first little buddle of joy (who just so happens to be a little girl after their fun gender reveal) later this year!  I couldn't be more happy for the two of you!! MUAH!!

Retro Glam Styled Shoot

So, I've been on pins and needles waiting to get the final shots of our styled shoot we recently wrapped up at Automatic Slims in the NC Music Factory earlier this month.  I'm happy to report we had no major malfunctions, with the exemption of a sick model, and everything went off with out a hitch! Here are a few of my favorites from the day.   I hope you enjoy the finished produt as much as we do! 

Thank you to Debbie & Jeremy at Lunahzon Photography for the long hours of editing, Blushing Hair & Makeup for their beautiful work, Annette from PA Reavis Floral Designs for her flower "balls" that I'm STILL obsessed with, Jennifer from Chloe & Isabel for providing us with the latest fall jewelry, Marianne from Chic Paper Chic, my "anything to do with printed paper genius", Ines from The Sky's the Limit Bridal Sweets for our AMAZING cake, Makeda from Queen's Sweets for her fabulous desserts, Alicia from Penloree L'Atelier for the magnificent Peter Langner dress and to the Shantel and Arlene, my two amazing helpers that with out their hard work the day would not have been nearly as easy!
