Gogh's Starry Night in 2010

"For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream." Vincent Van Gogh.
What a perfect saying to create a setting inspired by vintage wines, twinkling stars, and intoxicating love! So when our next bride-to-be just happened to run that one by us, we embraced her starry night theme whole-heartedly! I mean, really, you'd have to be crazy, if you couldn't embrace THAT. Picture this: a steamy late-summer evening soiree nestled in the hills of the Autumn Creek Vineyards in Mayodan, North Carolina, adorned with glittering gold stars, blush pinks, champagnes & taupes, all intertwined, embodying the romantic vineyard backdrop...and an eternal love, for certain. Ya know here, we believe the beauty is most often captured in the magnified details, so we're taking the liberty of sharing a few of the great images THE Ms. Michelle Dalton, with team in tow, was able to create! Enjoy these simply dreamy photos! The couple AND their guests had a ball even beyond nightfall...the perfect setting to be whisked off to Barbados to begin their lives together *sigh* :) We cannot say thanks enough for allowing us to share in quite a dreamy evening, and our prayer is that you'll have many, many years of wedded bliss!

Thankful Thursdays: Visions. Signs. Wonders

There are just some images you glance at that just simply look heavenly *sigh*...
some that almost capture the wonderment of love
some that capture God’s grace if nothing more than the creativity that must’ve rested on the creator of such beautiful details
Credits: Style Me Pretty Yosemite National Park Wedding Today we’re thankful well, er, yesterday, since this post should have found its way to enlighten you on Thankful THURSday….nevertheless, a thank you is always in order...ANYway, we're thankful for all of the visions, signs, and wonders He creates that when captured in art, showcase His awesomeness! For if we never showcased our creativity, how could be show others the God ideas He gives us?! Not trying to be overly deep...but we know our visions come from not us alone...and we're just gracious, is all. :) We absolutely LOVE the Style Me Pretty blog and all of the wonderful inspiration that gets showcased there. We’d like to think one day, we’ll be selected. In the meantime, we thought we’d post a few images of literal signs, visions, and His wonder caught on film. I swear in some I can even hear the ‘ting’ or the swoosh of the net, because these pics are truly worth more than just a few words. Hats off to the beautiful creators of the work…and to the utmost creator who bestows a little of His gifts in us all! Credits:Check out THIS backdrop!..another SMP find
We just love little reminders like this of His promises... Credits: Red Letter Words

Maybe we're just in love with vintage, but chic AND unique these days are kinda hard to come by....absolutely refreshing details!

What True Love Looks Like....

Aah, the beauty of a great couple, many years, and a touching love story....

This beautiful couple has been married for 50 glorious 6 children, a multitude of grandchildren, great-grand children, and years of happiness later, you must feast your eyes on this!

One simply GREAT photographer in Raleigh, NC, was kind enough to capture these great images of what true love really looks like! We can't say thanks enough to Ashley over at Story Photographers for picking the location and helping tell their story. She was such a pleasure to work with, and we can't wait to work with her as soon as the next grand opportunity presents itself. To see a little more of their story and more of Ashley's work, stroll on over to her blog! We hope these images inspire you, as they have us, to keep the love-a-brewin' for many years to come!
