A visit to the country

Earlier this week I was lucky enough to pay a visit to Rein and Shine, a Therapeutic Riding Facility in Awendaw about 30 minutes up the road from me. Their multi-talented executive director Mackie Moore is going to be featured in the upcoming issue of Skirt! magazine, and after snapping her photo I couldn’t resist turning my lens on some of the farm’s other smiling faces. (I know they’re smart but it was a surprise to me that pigs could smile.) The property is just beautiful and it smelled like summer camp, kind of a fitting way to round out the last official week of summer.

Meet Coleman

I spent a sticky August afternoon at my friend Heather’s fantastic downtown apartment frolicking with her 15 month old son Coleman. Coleman is just 6 months older than little Marcus and I’m amazed (and somewhat scared) of how much he can do on his own. Open doors. Slide bolted locks. Climb up on the bed. Get down off the bed. And run, run, run.

He’s also learned that good things come in little blue boxes. VERY important.

Coleman still sleeps in his crib but he has a big boy bed in his room that he adores playing on. (Note to self: overstuffed pillows can provide toddlers with endless entertainment.)

Meanwhile, Coleman provides the entertainment for Rosebud.

I went home and did the same thing. Thanks for a fun afternoon, Coleman!

Ashley + Chris

100+ degree heat index, no problem with an air-conditioned tent! Want a big sendoff, why not have two! And while you’re at it, get a scrumptious cake to flawlessly match the Sideshow Press custom designed save-the-dates! Ashley and Chris had a spectacular summer affair at Lowndes Grove Plantation following their ceremony at the Cathedral of St John the Baptist, all perfectly orchestrated and decorated by Kristin Newman Designs and Gathering Events. Ashley’s bridesmaids were classic in little black dresses with lace boleros and bright, eye-popping bouquets in orange and pink. It all looked fantastic against the sprawling grounds of the Plantation, and sounded great too thanks to Plane Jane. Love them. LOVE THEM.

Congratulations Ashley and Chris, and thank you so much for letting me capture your wonderful day! And you can see the entire event here.

Nicole and Jared

Nicole and Jared are not afraid of color and for this (and other reasons) I ADORE them. They had blissfully gorgeous weather for their July wedding and a slight breeze filled the air during their ceremony on the lawn at the Creek Club at Ion. Stacey Fraunfelter with Red Letter Events did the design and I was thrilled to meet Whitney of Branch Design Studio who did the bright and summery flowers.

Congratulations Nicole and Jared! Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your day!
