Hannah + Korey - Wedding Day

Man oh man, our summer weekends have been full of weddings and we wouldn't have it any other way. We sure do love this season - full of good times, friends, family, and oh so much love. 

Hannah and Korey surely have stolen our hearts. Their sweet smiles and laughs were infectious to all throughout their beautiful wedding day. Donuts, cakes, touches of blues, whites, + greens, a stunning white dress, and classic black tux created the most elegant and sweet day. We are so happy for your both and wish you all the happiness and love in the world. 

We hope you all enjoy a little peak in to their day through these gorgeous photographs by Kelsey Nelson Photography.

Style Me Pretty - Feature

One thing’s for sure, we love food and we bet you do too! That’s why we wanted to share a sweet little detail with you about the Mim’s House that you may not have known. 

Just yesterday we were featured on Style Me Pretty with a catering company that is so near and dear to our hearts. Our co-boss lady, Brooke Everhart, is also the owner of Belle’s Catering. A unique, boutique style catering company offering hand-designed menus, with locally sourced ingredients, seasonal themes, and beautiful recipes. Belle’s is perfect for weddings, corporate events, or any social affair.

Belle's Catering went above and beyond in creating a mouth watering spread for this bridal shower. Full of Mini Taco Bowls, Ahi Tuna Bites, Greek Flatbreads, Chipotle Chicken Meatballs and so much more there were a lot of full tummies.

As you continue planning the sweet details of your wedding day and catering needs, we hope we can spark some inspiration from today’s post. If you would like to see more from the beautifully designed bridal shower of Pretty in the Pines blogger, Shelby then head on over the Style Me Pretty to learn more. We promise it won’t disappoint. 

We love every chance we get to be a part of beautiful styled shoots like this one. It is always such a joy for us to come together with such amazingly talented vendors to make dreams a reality.

Motherhood Sessions

Not too long ago, we had the opportunity to work with Live View Studios + RAE Makeup for beautiful motherhood sessions. It was a chance for mothers to get all dolled up and have breathtaking photographs taken of them and their children to celebrate being a mother and the innocence + sweetness of childhood. 

We love looking through these photos as they are such a perfect description of life and motherhood - beautiful, messy, unpredictable, and oh so lovely. We hope these photos inspire you to spend time with those who matter most. Give them big hugs, laugh till you cry, and enjoy the time you have! 

And as we head in to another busy wedding weekend, we are always reminded how mush we love this beautiful home. Not only is it the perfect backdrop for your wedding day or a motherhood session, but also for birthday parties, bridal showers, baby showers, and so much more. 

If you are looking for the perfect place to host your next event, then feel free to fill out an inquiry HERE or come and see us Wednesdays from 4PM - 7PM at our Open House!
