An Athens Church Proposal

I know I talk about my church all the time and how awesome it is..but seriously, it is so GREAT! We have a service called "The 12" that is for college students and young adults. It is always so much fun and I just love seeing SO many college students/young adults come together for church.. Idk it's just not something you see a lot of these days and especially in a college town that is know for partying so it's just really encouraging. Anyway, yesterday was a very special day at "The 12." As y'all know Adam works for UGA Football in the recruiting department so I have a special place in my heart for those boys... especially ones like this who are just so great. 
Please watch this will brighten your day!

Engagement Pictures {Sneak Peak}

Here are a few of our pictures from last week's engagement session! Thank-you to the amazing Kaitie Bryant for capturing us as a couple and us as individuals so perfectly! You are a dream to work with and I cannot wait for our wedding!!

We took our first set of shots in downtown Athens. If you've known Adam and I for about .5 seconds you will know that our heart belongs in Athens. We love everything about it! The food, the football, the friends.. all of it. We have built such an awesome community here and I really hope this is where God wants us to be forever!

After our pictures downtown we headed back to my parents house and did some more casual and fun shots with the pups..

& of course, no engagement pictures would be complete without repping our favorite t-shirts from Athens Church!! {Thanks for the idea Nicole!!! ;) }

Our Weekend at SharpTop!

This past weekend our church took our middle and high school students on our annual fall retreat--Vertical Reality! This year we went to SharpTop Cove, a Young Life camp in North Georgia!! Not only is this a great weekend to spend time with our girls and get to know them better, it's also an awesome weekend because I get to hang out with a lot of my best friends who are also leaders!! Adam leads a 6th grade guys group but since their was a UGA game he wasn't able to go : (

Here are some fun pictures from our weekend!!

Friday night we had a late-night fun!

My group! Minus me...because I was taking the pic ; )

My BFF!!

& the most ridiculous photo shoot I have ever seen. This is basically what happens to leaders by the end of VR.. delirious !!!

A lot of our Nicaragua team was at VR : )) & some of my girls photo bombing in the background haha!

Kyle, me, & Ben.. throwing up our peace signs for our Asian friend Ed ; )

I love being a part of something so great. 
Athens Church is by far the best community I have ever been in and is a HUGE reason why I never want to leave Athens... ever!

Wedding Wednesday

Here's to another Wednesday dedicated to all things wedding!! I feel like ALL I have done for the past week is book things for the wedding! It feels so great to be marking things off the list left and right so early on. We have about 10 months left and I would say all of the major things are set with the exception of the honey moon! I thought it would be fun to share some of the things we've booked this past week...

{Ceremony music: Emily Hearn}
She is a worship leader at our church and I ADORE her voice. It is amazing. I am so excited to have her be a part of our big day.
*watch this video of her and her adorable fiance.. seriously, could they be ANY cuter?!?*

{DJ: Party with Marty.. his name made me want him 10x more! Ha!!}
*He is a friend of Adam's parents so we got in touch with him & it turns out he is GREAT! So excited for him to make our reception so much fun!

{Caterer: Countryside Catering}
*They cater all of the UGA home games for the football players and their families as well as all the recruiting visits so Adam knew from the start he wanted them. We are going all out southern style with our menu ; ) 

{Bridesmaid Dresses: Bill Levkoff Style 105}
*We're going with the color petal pink. It looks awful online so if you go look at it don't think I'm crazy, it's a beautiful blush pink in real life ; )

{Wedding Dress!!!!}
*Obviously the most important and I am SOOO glad this is out of the way! Now I just have to wait until the end of the year to be able to see it again :(

--We have our engagement pictures on Monday. SO excited!! Can't wait to share them with y'all as soon as I can : )) Expect lots of great "Athens-y" type shots!

Our Last Hoorah!

This past weekend I went to Destin with my parents and Carolyne-Grace to celebrate our last weekend of summer! My brother, sister-in-law & Adam weren't able to come but I really enjoyed all the one-on-one time with CG & my parents! We had SO much fun spoiling that girl more than normal {which is a lot already haha!!} 

Here are some pics from our trip!

I can't wait to give this girl some cousins!!!! ; )
