Everything was Glowing for Karen and John! April 25, 2009

Karen and John had a beautiful ceremony at their church and then traveled to the Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax for a luncheon reception.

Here is Karen with her daughter Tavia outside the church after the ceremony.

They paused for some photos in the garden while their guests enjoyed the punch reception.

Inside the Prosperity Ballroom, everything was ready for their grand entrance.

I love these cute honey jar favors!

The guests enjoyed a lavish buffet luncheon and then it was time for dancing and cake!

Everyone had a great time!

Best wishes Karen and John for a long and happy marriage!

Rainy days bring lots of changes in the garden: June 5, 2009

I braved the rain last Friday to bring you some updated garden pictures. You will notice that the patio is still damp! But, I'm so thrilled at the way everything is flowering and the vines are starting to trail that I just had to share! Enjoy!
