more about me

World travelin’, sustainability guru, humanitarian, foster and adoptive mommin’, photographer, photobooth-er, educator, multiple hat wearing entrepreneur. This girl’s love language is hugs and her tank is filled by serving others. You can find her under a palm tree, on a mountain, renovating a vintage trailer/house or running through the sprinklers with her husband, two boys and three fur babies.

Spring is here. And this wedding was as colorful as what we are excited for this season. After much rain in the Kansas City area, Mark and Amy had flawless weather. In the 70’s, sunny, fresh buds starting to bloom on the trees, and the darling look of the flower girl to the ring boy, wedding season is in full swing. I really had no down season this winter as I had three weddings.. so flowing from one month to the next has seemed like a long 2012 wedding season. But the refreshing blues and yellows have everyone smiling as they think about how fun this wedding was. And their Banana Who? Booth (photo booth) was a huge hit at their wedding reception held at Mike Onka Memorial Building  in the suburbs of Kansas City, in a small little town called Sugar Creek.

From the braids down to the teals in Amy’s wedding ring, everyone and everything was just beautiful. Thank you Amy & Mark for letting me, Tina, and Chris be such a large part of your day. And congratulations Mr & Mrs!
