Michael + Angele | Clebourne House Wedding!

When Brian and I first met Angele, we were tucked away in a cramped, 10-ft. x 10-ft. booth at a bridal showcase. She and her sister, Teresa, approached us and as they did, Teresa said, “Now, before you tell us anything about yourselves, are you available on April 30th of this year?” Hahaha : ) Michael and Angele got engaged on Christmas of 2010, and were not planning on having such a short engagement. Michael is in the US Army, however, and received orders to be stationed in Washington state this spring. Their wedding plans had to, then, speed up quite a bit, and Angele was having trouble finding vendors who were available on shorter notice. Thankfully, out of all of the many dates this spring we were all booked up, we had her wedding date available! Angele and Teresa looked at our albums and listened to our speil, and came back to our booth after they finished walking the rest of the show. We had our couches at our booth, where they sat down with us and talked more details. We’ve enjoyed every meeting with them; the sisters have always been full of energy and excitement! And we loved finally getting to meet Michael when we had dinner with him and Angele a few days before the wedding. Their wedding was beautiful with a ceremony at Angele’s home-church, Pineville Church of the Nazarene, floristry by Cindy’s Flowers in Rock Hill, and a gorgeous sunset reception at the Clebourne House. We enjoyed sharing this couple’s special day as they begin a whole new life together!

Angele | Beautiful Bride!

Angele’s Clebourne House bridal portraits were a lot of fun. The venue is chalk-full of possibilities, and Angele’s dress was a classic piece that flowed well with the decor of the Clebourne House. She had a detachable train- very cool! Pretty and functional : )

The image below was the one Angele chose to have printed and framed for the reception. Instead of

ordering a standard matte print, she ordered a canvas print- very classy!

Below: our fave : )

A Powell Easter

We had a wonderful time relaxing with our families on Easter Sunday. Well… okay, I had a wonderful time relaxing ; ) Brian had to work… boo! But I spent time with my family, attending Easter service at out beloved Remedy Church, and having lunch at my parents’ house with family and a few dear friends who weren’t near their families for Easter. When Brian got off of work, we headed to his parents’ house, where dinner, siblings and two adorable nieces awaited us, ready for pictures! These were all very impromptu- Beth asked me if we could take some photos of the girls and who could pass up a chance to snap shots of the two cutest toddlers on the planet?

Isabella!

…and Olivia : )

Hahaha… Steven and Callie

…”Vogue” it up…

And the best of a very funny series of shots of Kevin, Beth and the girls!
