BEACH SESSIONS

Just thought you guys would like to see that the sun does shine in Florida!

We still have a few more Beach Sessions to post - so here ya go!

We love our tough little G...
He took a tumble right before this Session started and still never missed a beat.
Can you tell that he's a little loved by this family????

And he did NOT like the sand. Thanks to a dog named "BUP" we actually touched the beach!!!

Enjoy!

COURTNEY + BRITTON

WOW - do I have a lot to say about this wedding...


Several months ago I received a phone call from my cousin - Britton.
I answered with - "Do you have something to tell me?" and he responded I'm getting married and we want to set a date - so when can you shoot our wedding?" 

Jeff and I just met Courtney in February at my father's funeral. I instantly thought she was adorable and she seemed to melt right into our family. Seriously - a funeral is not the first large family gathering you want to have to attend if you're the "girlfriend." After the funeral my cousin Ashley posted some images from our time together on her blog and when I saw the image of Courtney sitting with my grandmother - I knew she was the girl for Britton. She was made for this family.

I can't tell you how honored the ARP crew was to be included in the amazing event. Fable was the flower girl and she even gave a toast at the rehearsal dinner... "My name is Fable Rodgers, I'm glad Courtney is going to be in my family because she's pretty, I really like her because she's pretty, I'm happy that she's getting married to Britton because she's pretty (she coughed a little because of a cold) I'm sick and I want to get better"

Courtney is obsessed with the movie Sweet Home Alabama and this wedding was full of southern charm. Not only does she have great style, but she is beautiful inside and out. Oh - and Britton is pretty awesome too... He reminds me so much of my dad. They even drove off in a yellow VW Bug that my dad completely rebuilt. We have so many favorites - BUT we had to reign it in for this sneak peek. We'll have a slide show coming up soon. God blessed us with beautiful weather to celebrate their amazing wedding.

love you guys!!!!!

PS: almost forgot - Britton proposed with a wooden ring that he MADE!! How cool is that!!!
