wedding - Wallace, IN

We reconnected with Christy & Ryan for their wedding in Wallace, IN. Their wedding was filled with so many meaningful small-town moments that really seemed to compliment their personalities. The day was chilly, but the sun cut through the sky and made an appearance throughout the day. :)

True to the whole day, Ryan was calm and laid-back as he awaited the ceremony.

Some dress details. Beautiful!

She had this lovely sash that she tied around her waist. Loved :)

One of our favorites from the day. We thought some glittery ornaments would be appropriate. :)

A few more of their lovely details.

This mural, painted on their fire station, was so awesome.
So awesome that we might have gone a little overboard. :)


The ladies...

... and the gentlemen. :)

This whole series takes place in front of the Wallace Post Office
where Christy's grandmother worked for years!

Dear Christy, you are beautiful. Love, Amanda :)

Is it okay if I have another favorite? Get ready for about five more :)

Tiny little hands + piano keys = one of the cutest things I've seen in forever.

Play cell phone + same ridiculously cute flower girl + a little reflection = :) :) :)

Christy and Ryan know a man who collects and restores Model T's and this was their getaway car.
We were in love.

The only thing better than wedding cake is MULTIPLE wedding cakes!! :)

I was looking around for their card/gifts and then I realized where they were.
Under the Christmas tree. :)

Love the color here :) Andy's mom (an art teacher) would be proud! :)

Love this one of Christy & her dad :)

We loved today. :)

anytime - Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Hi there :) Andy and I just returned from a little vacation. We spent a few days in the lovely Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. And it was, in a word, divine. :) Here are some photos!

The view outside our room. The view outside our room at home is a cornfield, a fence, and Cheddar's chewed up toys. Trade, please? :)

Breakfast every morning was simply exquisite. We sat inches away from palm trees. :)


Our pool. Oh, and the Pacific Ocean. :)

The spa. Note that there are zero photos of me in here. You're welcome. :)

The Marina :)

Lobster cakes served over shredded carrots, beets, and a fresh pineapple, whacked in half :)

We took a lovely boat ride over to see the famous El Arco. Loved.

Our pool, at night. Ohh, I will miss you Mexico. But for now, back to WORK! Thanks for reading :)

wedding - South Bend, IN

Andy here. We can't even begin to describe Abbey & Kevin's amazing wedding. So, here's a preview: Krispy Kreme donuts. A bowling alley. And... wait for it... a Lego cake. Go see for yourselves! :)

Aren't their rings cool? :)

We couldn't resist. :)

This next series is dedicated to a little ring bearer that we liked to call "the bubble boy." :)

This little guy made us smile :)

(My favorite.)

After the wedding we snapped some pictures at St. Mary's College (Abbey is an Alum!).

Here's where the fun starts :) With... KRISPY KREME! Kevin sealed the deal with an original glazed. First from Amanda's view (we love Kevin's expression here).

...and then, from mine. :)


And then, the bowling alley! :)

Another favorite (guess what their wedding date was ;) ).

Amanda was sitting IN THE GUTTER for this. She will do anything for a photo! (And by the way, this was the second attempt. Kevin almost took her OUT with the first ;) )

LEGO! CAKE! (We were freaking out :) ) Made specially by Kevin's dad.

We'll end with a couple of our favorites. (We had several favorites. But we're not counting ;) )

Congratulation Abbey and Kevin. Thanks for all the fun! Your wedding is one we will not soon forget :)
