Chesapeake Inn Wedding – Katrina & Jon

post by nat

We heard from Katrina & Jon for the first time not much more than a month before their wedding. You see they had a big wedding all planned for later this year that was quite joyfully moved up a few months when Katrina & Jon found out they would be expecting their first child :)

Their story all starts about 8 years ago when they first met at Sacred Heart University, he was a Sophomore and she was a freshman, he played football and she was a cheerleader. A few years down the road and they move to Delaware for Jon’s work are engaged for almost two years and suddenly their world is changing….and so is their wedding date!

They chose to have their wedding at the lovely Chesapeake Inn because it is one of their favorite local places to go in the summer. Katrina actually worked at their sister restaurant and checked with them right away when their wedding plans changed. They were thrilled when the venue was open for their new date and then focused their plans on having everything ready to celebrate with all of their closest friends and family in one place!

Their day was filled with beauty! Elegance and romance just followed them around all day. From the gold and plum colors, to their constant smiles and laughter, this couple had an incredible day to commit their lives to one another :)

A few pre wedding details.

Katrina’s sister, matron of honor, hairdresser extraordinaire and one of the hands behind the wedding florals is a little further along than Katrina but was an incredible support to the couple throughout this whole change of plans. The babies are saying hi I think in this picture.

Cookies in the Mail – Fresh April Flours

post by nat

There’s just something about getting a package in the mail, it totally makes my day. So today when Matt & I got back from a meeting and there was a little package on our doorstop I instantly smiled :)

Now, this was no ordinary package. This one was filled with deliciousness…..yep I’m just gonna go ahead and claim that as a real word. You see Lynn is one of our brides from a few years back who has started a food blog Fresh April Flours and it’s awesome. I’ve used her recipes a few times already, though not as much as I would have liked since I’m usually the only one eating my own baking in this house. There is an exception to that rule though when it comes to cookies!

A few days ago Lynn posted on her Instagram that she would be baking up some cookies and would anyone like a package in that mail. Of course I said YES! And she made good on that offer. Now, I must admit my heart sank a little when I saw the package because I had already seen on her blog today that she had made cappuccino cookies and she mentioned me in the post so I knew they would be in the box. Let me clarify, I was thrilled for myself that I would be indulging in some deliciousness, but as most of you know Matt HATES, and I mean HATES coffee anything! But never fear, Lynn is awesome and included a small bundle of chocolate chip cookies in there just for him.

I got some pics of the cute package she sent before we devoured the cookies this afternoon, even Peanut & Kiwi got in on the goodness. You can find all of Lynn’s recipes on Fresh April Flours. Enjoy!

Our Gorgeous Linen Albums from Madera Books

post by nat

Matt and I always look for quality, particularly when it comes to the books that will be holding the images we have taken for our couples most special day. We were recently introduced to Madera Books and instantly fell in love! We don’t take changing albums companies lightly, but felt that our previous one was not giving us the quality it had for the first 6 years of our business. So, last year we ordered out first Madera Book and it was everything we hoped it would be :)

So why do we love these albums so much?

1. Madera is an album company for professionals. Why is this important? Because it means that there is a standard of quality that we can count on each time we order an album. We know that the materials, colors, binding and cover will be perfection when it arrives in the mail. And that it will stay that way for years to come as it’s looked at over and over again to re-live those moments that go by so quickly.

2. The lay flat pages are incredible. The gap between the pages is almost non existent and makes those full spread portraits even more stunning!

3. The album boxes are perfect for each size/type of album (there are leather albums as well, but we’ll save those for another post). They protect these memories and look great while they do it!

We can honestly say we’ve never been so excited to get these albums out to their new owners :) So, here’s a little peek at what all the fuss is about. Featuring the stunning wedding of Kristen & Paul at Drumore Estates.
