Grace and Jason shared a beautiful day. The lush gardens of Annabella at Cedar Glen created a magical backdrop for their ceremony and the skies were clear and blue.

Weddings are magical. Somewhere between clasping hands and exchanging vows the air becomes palpable. Softly spoken promises fill the air with a sense of hope and love, and by the end of the ceremony, I always leave feeling a little transformed. It’s like the Grinch, except my heart just feels bigger.

Grace & Jason,

I’m truly lucky to be able to call you both friends, and I’m touched that you chose to include me on your wedding day. I hope you had an amazing honeymoon in Antigua!

I’ll admit it, I was a little nervous when I set myself up for this challenge. I haven’t been the best at updating this blog in the past and the thought of coming up with something new every day? A little scary. But there’s something about holding myself accountable (making it a public challenge) that seemed to be the turning point. It’s nice to know that I’m writing for others. It’s nice knowing that you guys are tuning in to read (and comment!). It challenged me, inspired me, and showed me I can do this.

Will I keep writing every day? Probably not. Will I keep  writing? Absolutely. I’ve enjoyed this endeavor far too much to stop now. As for our winner—-he/she will be announced in tomorrow’s blog! Only a little longer to comment for a chance to win a free 1-hour massage!

I want to shoot a proposal.

I’ve been dying to blog about it lately. It’s an idea that has lit my heart on fire and I just can’t seem to drop it. Readying myself, showing up early, hiding behind bushes, far away with my zoom lens to quietly document one of the most powerful moments of your life—the very second you agree to intertwine your life with another. Can you imagine?

So I’m putting it out there. Grooms—get ready. I’m giving away one free proposal session. All you need to do is email me with the info and we’ll set up the perfect date/time to make it happen. You bring the romance, I’ll capture the memories.

Any takers? (Email- jessica@moonbellephotography.com)

And as a treat, here’s one of my favorite proposal videos <3

It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these. (Like almost a year…can you say overdue??) I wanted something simple for today’s post. I’ve been enjoying some crazy changes in my life lately and I’ve spent today buzzing with energy. I need to calm down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week’s KISSES go to:

-My realtor, Stephen Prucha. Yesterday, I accepted a counter offer on a house. My house. My very first house. Words cannot accurately describe the roller coaster of emotions coursing through me right now. I will have a space that is mine. I will have a studio. I will have a client meeting area. I will have a home.

-Chai lattes. With all of this week’s excitement, I haven’t needed caffeine like I normally do. But faced with the cool, dampness brought by Alabama springtime, chai lattes have been a girl’s best friend.

-My son. Because he’s cute. And he may have beat me in Sorry. Twice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This weeks DISSES go to:

– the long waiting period until Starbucks releases the Mocha-Coconut Frapp. I miss it.

-Tiiiiiiime. I need more of it.

-Coming across old photos of yourself where you were 75lbs of elbows and knees with braces. Woah 7th grade. You were mean.
