Missing Details

We were surrounded! All eyes were on us as we did our best to follow the rhythm and not look like awkward middle schoolers at a school dance. We had just been introduced and were sharing our first dance as husband and wife. The only problem was...the song.

We looked at one another as we swayed, and I’m not sure what my wife was feeling but my stomach was in knots. Not because everyone was watching, but because that was not the right song. You see, I wanted everything to be  perfect, but things were already off and it was all my fault.

Extraordinary Moments

Recently my wife and I watched a TED Talk by Brene Brown. During the talk, Brene mentioned how we often get so caught up chasing extraordinary moments that we miss the ordinary ones, and the ordinary ones are often the most important. That really hit me because all of those years when I was trying to find myself, I spent so much of my time chasing extraordinary moments. I was always looking for the “1 photo”- the decisive moment to tell a story, the big picture that was going to catapult me to bigger and better things, the quick fix that would make everything better. I always wanted to be more than I was, but more of nothing is nothing. 

Today I can see what Brene Brown means. The extraordinary moments and experiences are great, but it is those ordinary moments that often carry the most meaning.

Avoiding Awkward Family Photos

This past Sunday was Father’s Day and if your social media feed looked like mine, it was filled with tributes to dads. I have to admit that a few years ago, seeing those posts about “Dear Ole’ Dad” would have ruined my day. When you don’t have a relationship with your father it’s easy to feel sorry for yourself and be angry. That’s how I felt anyway.

Gorgeous Ships of the Sea Museum Wedding

I was doing my best to remain inconspicuous as I hid behind the jetty on Tybee Island’s north beach. I had a time and a photo of who I was looking for, but the waiting is always a little nerve wracking and exciting. I spotted them walking down the beach. They stopped just over the rocks from where I was and that’s when Adam got down on bended knee and asked Heather to marry him. This past weekend Heather and Adam said “I do” during a beautiful ceremony in the garden at the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum.

Spring Harper Fowlkes House Wedding

Savannah offers so many amazing venues for weddings. Some of my favorites are the historic sites including houses, such as the Harper Fowlkes. Its garden is beautiful and was the perfect location for Haley and Chris’s Savannah wedding. After getting ready at The Desoto they chose to have a First Look and read special vows to one another before the ceremony. Once they finished they stored them away in a wine box, which they will open together to celebrate their first anniversary.

Spring is such a beautiful time in Savannah. As you move through the season different flowers blooming and all kinds of fragrances fill the air. One of my favorite is Confederate Jasmine, which is currently in bloom and makes for one of my favorite backdrops. Following their ceremony everyone made their way over to Soho South Café for the reception.

Congratulations to Haley and Chris! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day.
