Travis & Julie’s Wedding in Florida ✨

First Meetings Julie’s family has been precious to me since I first lived in Lakeland, Florida. I’ll never forget walking into their house for a Bible study, totally awkward and nervous, only to meet some of the coolest people EVER! Julie immediately struck me as witty, quick on her feet, and super easy-going. Those first […]

Cameron and Dorian’s Wedding in Idaho ⛰

First Meetings Note: It’s basically impossible to describe a wedding like Cameron and Dorian’s in a simple bog post! After all, it wasn’t just any wedding, but a reunion of old friends, a celebration of love waited for and won, and a genuine expression of worship. For those of you who want the full story, […]

✨Stephanie & Joey’s Wedding in Lakeland! ✨

First Meetings It is always a beautiful thing to witness a love story built on waiting patiently. Stephanie had made the choice at a young age to not begin dating until she was ready to marry the one God had for her, and on her wedding day it was easy to see just how much […]

Lysette & Mark’s Wedding in Tampa, Florida! 🎉🕺✨❤️

First Meetings Lysette and Mark met at a baseball game. It wasn’t a complete surprise though, because just one month before that, Lysette’s parents had gone to a different baseball game where they had met the tall, handsome and oh so single Mark. They put their match-making skills to work and convinced him right off […]

Quiet Time: The Daily March of Heaven’s Warriors

Left, Left, Left Right Left. If you’ve been an American Christian for any length of time, then you’ve probably heard the phrase “Quiet Time” or “Daily Devotions” on multiple occasions. Since I grew up as a missionary kid in a Christ-centered home, the idea of spending daily time with God was basically a no-brainer! My […]

Autumn and Kyle’s Wedding

First Meetings If there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that my FAVORITE place in all of Lakeland is Hillcrest Coffee! ☕ I’ve adored this homey coffee spot since day one, and if you like hole-in-the-wall treasures, then you are super likely to find me at this one! In fact, my part in […]

Consumers Anonymous

Hi, my name is Naomi, and I’m a consumer. I’ll never forget the culture shock of moving from a third world country to America. Growing up as a missionary kid had kept me relatively sheltered from getting whatever I want whenever I wanted it. If I needed new clothes, the hunt to find even just […]

Katie & JC’s Wedding in St. Augustine

Katie & JC Every once in a while you meet a couple where everything about them just CLICKS. 🙌 I first met Katie while taking her family’s pictures, and I immediately noticed that she was not only fun-loving and kind, but also a woman of great style and taste (teach me your ways, girlfriend!).  So when […]
