This summer I had the privilege of coordinating, creating, and capturing both of my sisters' weddings with my mother and my dear friend Annie. This summer has just flown by! For June and July I was in California helping my family and having a grande adventure, I got to hang out with supporters and plan and photograph my sisters weddings! Now, I do have to say that Jake was a champion during this time, if you prayed for him while I was in CA we both really appreciate it! He flew out to California for each wedding but could not stay for very long each time due to his apprenticeship work schedule.
The way it worked out was that my sister Sydney got married on June 12th and my other sister Madison got married on July 17th so it was a crafting filled month or so loaded with lots of excitement, girl movies and hot glue. This summer was one of the best I've ever had. The only reason it wasn't the very best was because Jake couldn't be their with me the entire time, we talked everyday on the phone but lets face it that's just not the same!
Below are a bunch of pictures from the two weddings for you to enjoy...beware there are a LOT of pictures!! (The picture quality is not the greatest since I made the files smaller for the blog.) Enjoy!
Dad did Syd's makeup! Along with many other talents
my dad is a make-up artist!!
Sydney and Sam chose to see each other before the
wedding so that they could get some great portraits.
Syd and I made her hair bow together- it was a great
I made Syd's bouquet for her out of buttons I had
collected from Coshocton and Amish Country.
Syd's dress was very unique and fit her style perfect!
Sam was a trooper and was proud to wear such an
amazing bow tie! Work it Sam!
The bridesmaids carried in these handmade (by Syd)
terrariums instead of bouquets.
As you can see it was hard for me to make it into shots,
but a few pictures down you'll see me!
