At Christmas, Alex and I had the pleasure of sharing our newlywed bungalow with the gals at Southern Weddings. Bryan graciously came over to shoot the feature, and we treated him to a morning of coffee and chasing chickens.
My favorite part of our little home is our heritage wall. It is what people gravitate towards when they visit, and it is what Alex catches me staring at when we’re sitting on the sofa. It is filled with images from our engagement, rehearsal, wedding and travels. I love the eclectic mix of frames almost as much as the memories they hold.
One of our favorite things to do is to see which shots resonate with friends and family. My best friend Rachel loves the one taken the day after we got engaged. It’s off-centered, out of focus, and full of excitement. Our bud Daniel loves the pair of Polaroids from our honeymoon. When people choose a favorite, Alex and I dive right into the story behind the shot. “My mom took that one with Bryan’s Rolleiflex and had NO CLUE how to focus!” “We asked a guy holding a sign for free hugs to take that Polaroid. He actually made us give him a hug first!”
We love our wall, and we love these images. They represent our first home, our first year of marriage, and the 1,000,000 holes we’ve lovingly drilled into our plaster walls. We are moving to Tennessee next month, and I’m so thankful that we have this sweet season captured in such an incredible way.
