Cate & Kyle | Rehearsal Dinner Omni La Costa

10.23.14         Weddings

Cate & Kyle’s wedding day events were all happening at the gorgeous Omni La Costa so it was fitting that the rehearsal and dinner take place there as well.  Being southern California, an outdoor rehearsal dinner by the pool area was the perfect choice!  Kyle’s taste had plenty of influence in the Friday evening event.  It was a wonderful time for sharing personal toasts, gifts and even a few lighthearted games before the big day.

Cate & Kyle | Welcome BBQ Carlsbad, California

10.22.14         Weddings

Cate & Kyle’s guests were welcomed to the Carlsbad Inn with a BBQ on Thursday evening.  Lots of hugs and laughs were shared as friends and family reunited and enjoyed a beautiful evening outside watching sunset.  We got the chance to head down to the beach with them for a few minutes, which was gorgeous and a nice little time for the two of them to have together.

Welcome Caroline | Sweet Baby Girl

9.3.14         Personal, Portraits

No, this is not an announcement that we are expecting a girl.  Even though we are expecting a sweet little bundle in late January, we will wait for the gender surprise for birth day.  This is celebrating our dear friends’ sweet baby girl, Caroline.

Tony & Meredith are dear friends of ours and we have very much enjoyed the fact that they live just blocks away.  Around 23 weeks into Meredith’s pregnancy, she became at high risk for going into very early labor and was put on very restrictive bed rest.  This was especially heartbreaking after their loss of their 20 week old baby last summer.  Praying for another day in the womb, turned into prayers for another week, and turned into praising God for a full 39 weeks baby, born just days away from her due date.  So many things about babies are just a miracle and Caroline is an answered prayer.  Tony has been going through chemo throughout the pregnancy and although taking on his own health challenges, was an incredible help to Meredith as she went through the months of bed rest.

Although baby pictures aren’t something I offer anymore, I couldn’t help but capture this sweet milestone celebration for Tony and Meredith.  Caroline, you’re a doll, and I’ll do what I can to teach Jonathan and Charlotte gentle touches for the baby. (A skill that will come in handy later)
