I’ve been BEGGING the CFO for a puppy for about 3 years now…BEGGING. Any one of my close friends or family members can tell you, that when I REALLY set my mind to something, I usually achieve it. This was not the case with getting a dog. The CFO was holding firm, I worked too much, we traveled too much and our condo was too big of a mess to get a dog. Fine. The years passed, and my love for puppies never ceased. Every time I passed one on the street or in a car, an “oh my goodness!” squeal came bursting from my lips. Even Hutch began to mimic those same words when we encountered canines.
Then finally, one day, he said it…we could get a dog after the Democratic National Convention (since we’re renting out our condo and heading to Italy). YES! Ok…September…not too bad. I can wait. Oh no wait, no I can’t. When I get a real, concrete idea in my head–boom! It needs to happen. I searched tirelessly all over the internet for the most perfect morkie I could find. And finally, as you probably know (unless you’re living under a Facebook rock) I found one! Well, two. But at first it was one. It was Ollie. We bought her (after more begging), and I was so happy. Then, I went to bed that night and couldn’t fathom leaving the brother with out his sister. I woke up in a panic, anxiety-stricken. Then the begging started again. I NEEDED them both. Finally, the CFO gave in (he was NOT happy about it) and we got both. Ollie+Otto. They flew in one faithful morning in July from Kansas City (where I again proceeded to have another anxiety attack thinking of them dying mid-flight), and our new family was here! We love them so much and don’t even remember life before them! Even the CFO loves that we got BOTH! 🙂
I’ve now officially turned in to a crazy puppy mom–which wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t have a photo shoot for the pups–right? Sarah from McGraw Photography took the pups out for their shoot and they literally had the time of their (short!) LIVES! Enjoy some cuteness! 🙂
This morning I woke up and saw that Cheyenne from The Schultzes had done a late-night blog session of Beth+Jason’s engagement photos–and I just HAD to blog immediately. The Schultzes’ use of light in their photography never ceases to amaze me. Beth+Jason are such a sweet couple and we have loved working with them to plan their October wedding at The Brawley House!
Meet Rachel+Zack. She’s a city girl living in a country world, law school grad, bride-to-be marrying the love of her life. He’s a country boy who comes from a hogging family–that’s right, piggies! They’re having an Uptown city wedding at the Foundation For The Carolinas next April and we simply can not wait! Rachel wants the wedding to showcase the Uptown girl from Charlotte that she is! Lots of yummy inspiration for this one to come. For now, enjoy some of their engagement photos from Kristin Vining Photography with gorgeous styling, hair and makeup by LRT of Be Pretty :).
Beth+Jason are set to be married in October at The Brawley House. This wedding will get you excited for Fall to get here (and the fact that it’s been a consistent 95 degrees this summer). Beth+Jason want to use rustic, shabby-chic elements to compliment the old Victorian architecture of the Brawley House. Can’t wait to see the gorgeousness The Schultzes capture for their big day! For now, enjoy some inspiration. 🙂
