Shake it out of the bag.
Stir with a smile.
Keep stirring and begin twisting hair.
Crack the egg and look for a baby chic
Get a spoon full of mix and start dripping
This is interesting.
Is this ever gonna stop?
It’s just like painting!
A good cook always tastes.
After the boring baking, it’s time to decorate.
Note: Lips are turning blue.
Just a little bit more.
No, I didn’t do it.
For my new baby brother.
Ready for the party!
Worked up a thirst.
This one’s mine.
It’s a boy! I’m a big sister now!
Brock and Amanda got engaged on Tybee Island, Georgia. Brock played his cards right by setting up a picnic bordered with candles and singing/playing his guitar with a song he wrote just for Amanda. The song ended with one knee down and a big YES from Amanda.

LOVE between Marvis and Brittany began in Alabama. After a few dinners together and running into one another at the gym, they built their relationship quickly.

This love-story began in 2014 when one of Katie’s close friends introduced her and Kirk while attending a birthday party in Vernon, Connecticut. With Katie living in New Jersey and Kirk living in Connecticut, they would meet half way for dating. In that same year, Katie moved to Georgia for work related reasons. Yes, Kirk couldn’t stand being away from Katie so a few months later he followed. They were both hit by the love bug. They were engaged in 2016 and married just a couple of weeks ago at The Tybee Wedding Chapel on Tybee Island, Georgia.

I’m showing you an easy way to transition from Fall to Thanksgiving for your table.I love displaying my grandmother’s old aqua dishes, especially for the holidays. It gives me a sense of my heritage and family. I combined rusty orange, navy, aqua, green and tan to bring Fall into a complete circle This is an easy transition from fall to Thanksgiving.Because I’m only using as decoration, I chose to fold a set of placemats to mock a napkin instead of purchasing real napkins.I love using white in my home but I don’t limit my self to the same shade of white when grouping accessories. This is my way of decorating for Thanksgiving without adding the color orange everywhere (This may seem weird but I don’t decorate my home with colors I don’t look good in.) I live on the coast, so I added a white star fish in the mix. I follow no rules in decorating. Layering is a way to bring textures and dimension to your table setting. Happy Thanksgiving and bless God today!
This premier wedding venue overflowed with southern charm for this Illinois couple. Of course, Stacey and Tasha brought their own charm to The Mackey House along with friends and family from all over the United States. Not only was the venue a premier venue, the vendors chosen by the bride were also premier vendors. The list includes Jerina Mac Photography (Savannah), Southern Graces (caterer, florist and detail decor from Beaufort, SC), Rev. Joe Wadas (Savannah), DJ Joe Kollege (Chicago, Ill.), and planners Jackie Weems & Genise Walker.
The Couple. Stacey & Tasha met in September of 2001. Tasha had been out with her friends, celebrating her birthday. At the end of the night, hugs and goodbyes were said to her friends and there stood “Mr. Right”. Yes, I’m talking about Stacey; who at that time was a stranger asking, “Where’s my hug?”. Now who in their right mind would turn down a request from such a handsome. Well, of course, Tasha being the friendly person that she is, gave Stacey a hug that would make him think he had been a friend forever.
Although their courtship was brief, they maintained their friendship over the years. In August 2010, they rekindled their relationship and on September 6, 2015 they became engaged.
Guest Bedroom Ideas
When I’m not shooting a wedding or families, I’m decorating my home. I can’t afford to hire a professional so the only way I can get what I want is to do it myself. First and foremost, for this to be successful, you have to have a true passion for it. Hopefully, this guestroom will be an inspiration to you or at least an encouragement to get started.
Just to let you know, I always start shopping at the least expensive store and then work my way up. I find all of my decorations at the following places: Ross, HomeGoods, Kirkland’s, Target, Hobby Lobby, TJmaxx, Marshall’s and Steinmart.I looked everywhere for bedding and couldn’t find anything that I fell in love with so I ordered this particular one from Soft Surroundings online. The bedskirt was one I already had (Steinmart)I love using the “unexpected” on my walls. I screwed in a small picture hanger on the back and randomly placed them on the floor first. Once I got it the way I liked it, I hung it! LOVE TEXTURESMost of the walls in my home are “white-white” (flat) so that I can add a pop of color and change my decor. This is much easier than repainting every time I change my color scheme.It’s very rare that I like the knobs that come with my furniture so I make a trip to Hobby Lobby on the week they have their knobs for 50% off and save a ton. It really personalizes the furniture with the decor.
Over the past 13 years, I bet I’ve painted this armoire 6 different colors. I store a small tv with movies for the grandchildren to watch their favorite movies when they visit us. Every green plant you’ll see me use is artificial; as long as it looks real. (I am the worst at keeping real plants alive) I use lanterns for everything but candles. Here, I’ve got my collection of seashells displayed.Again, artificial greenery and more seashells displayed on a cake platter. Underneath, I used two very old books that belonged to our family decades ago.This bedroom is so big I had enough room to add a small sofa for my guests to relax on or just sit their “stuff” on during their visit. (This use to be in my photography studio but I didn’t want to get rid of it.) Before getting rid of something, see if it can be used in another room for a different function and don’t be afraid to change the paint colors. These end tables and the legs on this sofa use to be silver. Now that I’m using a touch of brass in my house, I spray painted the tables and hand painted the legs.
As soon as Taylor and Joey arrive at The Mackey House, you can see and feel the excitement through those two and their wedding party. The guys have this awesome “mancave” and the girls have a “princess-like” suite to relax in and begin to transform themselves into the picture perfect wedding party Taylor has always dreamed of having on her wedding day. As the caterers, florist, DJ, and wedding planners are doing their part, I, as the wedding day photographer, am on the move capturing every special moment taking place.
Taylor and Joey brought their “A” game on hiring the following vendors for their spectacular wedding day celebration:

This athletic couple met through mutual friends and started to realize sports was just one of many things they had in common. Joey was playing baseball at Armstrong University and Taylor had just transferred to Armstrong to play soccer. What better place for Joey to propose to Taylor than the first place they met…the baseball field.
