    We had a great time at the Fairytale Wedding Show. This was our very first bridal show, so we wanted to make a big splash with an awesome booth. Design started right after Christmas, and Kyle has worked just about every weekend since, building our booth. Since this little lady has been getting bigger and bigger (hello 3rd trimester!), he’s mostly had to build our booth by himself. Poor guy. I did provide emotional support – checking up him – bringing him snacks and drinks. So, I feel like I contributed, somewhat. :)

    We had a super rockin’ giveaway at the show. We gave away a FREE Love Story Video Session. And the winner? Miss Leah Shoniker! Leah – contact us to work out the details. :)

    Alright y’all – back to the grind. We have a New Year’s highlight reel coming soon, a pretty sweet photographer promotional video and – SOON – the arrival of our little bundle of sweetness, Tan-man. Can’t wait!

    Much Love.
