Christmas, Christmas time is here

Boy, it's been some time since I've been in such a cheery Christmas spirit! 
Tomorrow, my sister and I both have the day off, so what better way to celebrate other than baking cookies together! Pictures shall follow, I hope! Along with some pinecone painting, and other things of that nature. Last week, I made my first print delivery for some family pictures I did a while ago. It was such a great feeling knowing that I was about to give a family something so dear to me, a ton of pictures that I put my heart into. So I figured, what better way to celebrate than to wrap up the pictures and present them almost as a gift if you will. 

Weird, I felt so established. Like here I am. It was such a wonderful feeling. And it was so fun seeing tissue paper thrown out across the floor as they were unwrapping their pictures! 
It's been quite the busy time of the year for me and I've missed writing each and every one of you! Hopefully this week, I'll be able to reach out a little more. Thank you all for following me! I broke 60 followers! 
So thank you so much! I might get a little generous here soon and maybe do a Christmas giveaway or something. Thoughts?

On Saturday, I worked a gorgeous, and not to mention, freezing, wedding at Cyprus Bay Plantation. I wish I had more time to take pictures of all that went on. It was a slightly rainy day with lots of Christmas cheer. The party started in the family's beautiful home where they were walked in by a gospel choir and into the warm house where they were served apple cider until it was time to go to the Chapel in the Woods where they waited for the ceremony. The bride came in on a horse drawn carriage. Not to mention, she was wearing a great pair of boots. After walking down the isle carrying a bouquet made of black magic roses, the ceremony began. The rings were brought in by their black lab named Guess. The reception was made of lots of fun elements, including a homemade desert cookie bar and a great firework display and an 8 piece swing band. Yup, I kind of loved it, except for the cold. Here are a few pictures. 

And some from the actual wedding photographer, just so you get to see all of this wonderfulness!

Friends, enjoy! 
I'm working diligently to respond to you all! 
Love, peace, &  chicken grease ;)
