The Bee’s Knees: Part Three

It’s time for another installment of “The Bee’s Knees“! Here are some things (or people) that I’m currently loving:

1. Norwex. I was researching ways to limit paper towel usage in our home, and I came across this product online. I found someone in my town who was having a party, went, and fell in love! The cleaning supplies have no harsh chemicals, and the towels special microfiber system allow me to save a lot of time while cleaning! I feel good knowing that using Norwex, we are not breathing or ingesting harsh chemicals.

2. Sacred Arrow Jewelry. Y’all know that I am OBSESSED with my Young Living Oils right?!  Well, this company makes jewelry that will diffuse an oil while you wear it, how cool is that? Wether it be “Peace and Calming” or my favorite “Valor“, now I can be stylish and have my favorite oil nearby. The BEST thing about this company is that every sale buys the oil “Sacred Frank” for a cancer patient (I love a company that gives back)! Sacred Frank has been known to reduce the size of certain cancer cells. If you ever want more info on these oils, or if you want to use my discount to purchase your own, please let me know!

3. Jennie Allen. While researching bible studies for our young women’s small group class, it was really hard to find a study that was geared toward ladies my age. I found Jennie’s bible study “Stuck”, and it was amazing. From the content, to the dvd, to the way everything is written: Her studies are geared towards “todays woman”. All the ladies in our class loved it so much that we are starting her new study “Restless” this week, and we can’t wait!

4. GOOD LUCK LIFE. This is the “Essential Guide to Chinese American Celebrations & Culture”. Since we’re adopting from China, we’re trying to learn everything we can about the culture. We want to be knowledgeable when we travel, as well as celebrate Chinese traditions, and cook certain foods while our child is growing up. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn more about China. It’s opened our eyes to a lot, and we can’t wait to teach these things to our future child!icon smile The Bees Knees: Part Three

Three reasons why you should consider the First Look

First Look; An intimate moment between the bride and groom before the ceremony.

Back in the day when marriages were arranged, some couples never met each other UNTIL the wedding day (can you imagine?!). The groom was not allowed to see his bride in fear that he would see her for the first time and run away. This is where we get waiting until you walk down the aisle before you see each other. It’s also a reason there are wedding veils. Times have changed people! If your groom is gonna run away when he sees you then we have a bigger problem.icon wink Three reasons why you should consider the First Look

Here are my top three reasons you should consider the First Look:

1. More time with your partner. If your wedding is at 6pm and you don’t see each other until then, you have just spent the most important day of your life…apart! The first look allows you to see each other early and in an intimate setting before the ceremony without everyone watching. This brings out the true emotion of the moment and creates less stress when you walk down the aisle. You then get to spend the rest of the day TOGETHER. Like it should be.

2. It allows you to get all the photos done before the ceremony, so you don’t have to squeeze them all in after. As a photographer, it is ideal that I have just the couple at least thirty minutes for bride and groom portraits. If we wait until after the ceremony, we have a very limited time to do your pictures before the reception. Not to mention we will still have to do ALL of the family photos as well as group wedding party photos.

A lot of people have traveled a great distance to see you and you want to see them as well! Take it from me, people will  be fussing wondering where you are. Some people might even leave before you get there (that happened at my wedding)! Getting all the photos done beforehand lets us take our time and have a lot of fun. Take it from a former bride who did the first look, you will not regret it! After capturing the first look, I always walk away for a few minutes. This is your day, you should be able to take a few minute, breathe, and soak it all in.If you choose not to do the first look, that is OK! We will still work in photos to the timeline. The first look is just something that I like my couples to think about. Either way, you will have a great day and wonderful images to show for it!
