I totally had not realized that I skipped blogging the entire month of June weddings!  lol  Well, never fear....I've recognized and I'm getting back on track. :)

This lovely little post is dedicated to Jaysen and Amber, married June 2nd, 2012, in Benton, AR (near Little Rock).  We had the joy of shooting their engagement session earlier in the year, and it was awesome, so we were SUPER excited to be a part of their wedding!  It was a beautiful day for a backyard wedding and everything went perfectly.  Amber managed to sing to Jaysen during the ceremony, which was totally amazing and had everyone in tears.  And their vows were so so sweet.  Loved it!  At the end of the night, we managed to pull off one of my favorite shots of the year - sparklers that by ACCIDENT (or divine intervention ;)  spelled out LOVE.  Enjoy!!! :)

I love my life - and I know what I believe

By trinityridge in uncategorized

Just when you thought life couldn't get any does. :)  My beautiful Mother has been in the hospital recovering from a recent surgery to remove a new cancerous tumor.  It's times like these that I feel the pressure of work and balancing time with family - and then suddenly it disappears.  Sitting in the hospital, with my best friend, watching the clock tick and time go by - I remember what is important.  That time just hanging out with my mom is priceless, the time I sit on my couch with my kiddos laughing about nothing is priceless, every time my Love walks through the door and hugs me and tells me he loves me is priceless.  That is the substance of my life.  That is what I value.  God has been immeasurably good to me.  My God is love and he has shed his love on me.  I don't blame him for my problems, I give my problems to him.  My heart rests in him.  My soul lets go of pain and stress and weight in light of his love.  A lot of people comment on how happy I am, how positive I am.  I just want to say that despite the wonderful things that I have, I'm this way because of what I know.  I know beyond doubt that I am loved, that I am forgiven, that I am saved, and that I am never alone.  What I know makes me love my life, and if I can share that with you, I want to. :)

By trinityridge in uncategorized engagements

Eric and Anastasiya, who currently reside in Delaware, stopped in Fayetteville on their last trip to Arkansas just long enough for us to do an engagement session with them!  Most couples we shoot engagements for also end up being wedding clients, but this gorgeous couple will be tying the knot in Italy!  (Lucky!!!)  We had such a fun time shooting their session, hope to have the chance to do another one with them in the future. :)  Enjoy!!

The Best Weddings in Hollywood History

By kissesandchaos in weddings film hollywood weddings jim & pam kermit & miss piggy mark & bridget movie weddings pop culture sabrina & aaron & harvey tv

Ah, and your weddings.  How we love you…and hate you…but mostly love you.  I’m sure you’re expecting me to talk about various vows & gowns of the likes of Grace Kelly &  Rainier III, Beyonce & Jay-Z, Ben & Jennifer or Tom & Katie, but no.  I want to talk about the fictional nuptials that we love so dearly…the ones we waited for, hoped for and cheered for…the couples we love to love.  I now give you four of the best weddings in Hollywood history.  Enjoy the memories and warm fuzzies they bring.

Kermit & Miss Piggy

After years of trying to nab the frog of her dreams, Miss Piggy tied the knot with Kermit the frog.  The validity of the nuptials is still hotly debated.  Miss Piggy and the minister who performed the ceremony claim the wedding was valid while Kermit insists he was merely an actor doing his job and that the service was nothing more than a performance.  Either way, fans were happy to see them walk down the aisle, if for no other reason than not having to deal with Miss Piggy’s plotting, scheming, pining and whining anymore.

Pam & Jim

Admit it.  You love Pam & Jim.  They’re a match made in Hollywood heaven.  But is it any wonder that in the midst of their wedding weekend, with all their insane (but well meaning) co-workers and family running around, creating stress and wreaking havoc that they would decide to elope and have a private ceremony at Niagara Falls mere hours before their formal public affair?  I don’t blame them one bit.  They gave themselves the best of both worlds – an intimate moment for them to secretly cherish and a public event to share with beloved family and friends.  Well done, Pam & Jim.  Well done.

Sabrina & Aaron

The wedding of Sabrina & Aaron on Sabrina The Teenage Witch was exciting for all who grew up watching the antics of the little blonde spell-caster…especially when Sabrina, upon realizing that Aaron is not the love of her life, runs out of the church in the middle of her wedding and finds her high school sweetheart and soul mate, Harvey, waiting for her outside.  THIS was what fans had hoped for…a fairytale ending for the on again off again couple.  Fans didn’t get to see Sabrina & Harvey get married, but as she rode away from the church on the back of his motorcycle fans knew the couple would live happily ever after.

Bridget & Mark

Weren’t we all pulling for the adorably neurotic and severely relationship impaired Bridget Jones to get Mr. Nice Guy, Mark Darcy to put a ring on it?  Oh yes we were.  And while Mark does propose and Bridget does say yes, we’re left wondering if they make it down the aisle or not.  Their rollercoaster relationship certainly had it’s twists, turns and dips but we still don’t know if it all worked out in the end, which is maddening.  So why in the world is this being included on a list of Hollywood weddings?  Part wishful thinking and part hopeful anticipation that Bridget Jones’ Baby will get out of pre-production and actually be filmed so we can finally see if they live quirkily ever after.  I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly hoping they do.


Do you have a favorite Hollywood wedding moment?
