'Tis the season for weddings!

I think I may have told you that before I was a mommy I was a wedding planner. I just love this time of year because it usually means a wedding or two is in my near future... but, lucky me, this month I have a wedding 3 out of 4 weekends! (As you can imagine, my husband does not exactly share my sentiment!)

There's something about being a part of an event that has been planned with great precision for months on end that I enjoy. I think it has something to do with knowing that each detail was thought through and chosen carefully.

Periwinkle and White:
My sweet friend Heather was married in April (the perfect month to be married if you ask me!) She and her fiancee thought of everything and believe it or not this was a wedding on a tight budget! They made the cupcake stand themselves; and yes, the chocolate and vanilla cupcakes were as good as they looked.
Navy and Buttercup:
Tracy is my sister-in-law's sister who also happens to have a killer instinct when it comes to cutting hair! She chose Navy and Buttercup as her colors, check out those heels... wowzers! My favorite detail was the unity cross, and the adorable ring bearer (my nephew!) with his best buddy Owen.
Pink and Black:
I had the privilege of being in the wedding of my brother-in-law this past weekend. My husband is one of three boys. The oldest has 2 sons and we have 2 sons, so we say that the Tucker girls are members of a very exclusive club, we have to marry in! Olivia is the newest member of our club, isn't she beautiful!? She chose pink and black as her colors and my favorite part of this wedding was the super cute groomsman I got to take home with me!!
What about you? Are there any wedding details that you're loving right now?

I'm gearing up for photographing my second wedding of the year this weekend. I'm getting over the panicky feeling of wedding photography and love making carefully planned photography lists that involve the most efficient grouping and moving people as possible.

Catherine, that is too funny! Super small world! Olivia is so great!

Christina, what a big responsibility photographing a wedding! I've been to so many weddings where the photographers are not efficient, but it sounds like you're really on top of things! You'll do great!
