Wedding for sale (dress/decorations)

After debating with myself for a little while, I decided it would be best for me to sell my wedding dress after we had gotten married. I figured that my kids will most likely be taller than I am so they wont be able to wear it, and to be honest – our apartment is just too small to hold on to it, and I could use the funding to pay off my card that the dress had originally been purchased on ;). Sean and I decided to take some additional fun pictures in my dress and get dressed up one more time before saying goodbye to my fun dress! We had our pictures taken this past weekend and we had a blast! I will be sure to post some here and share with every one when we get them!

So now the time has come to find my big pretty dress a new home….as well as all of my other wedding “things”.
When I was planning my wedding, I looked high and low for little things like candle holders and little d├ęcor elements on-line that were slightly used – trying to go the budget/green route. Surprisingly, I had no luck…at all! So I (along with most brides out there) dished out some good money on it all. Now that our wedding is over, I really hope that I might be able to pass on all of my little decorations (vases, candle holders galore, ring pillows, etc, etc, etc…..). I know that there’s got to be plenty of people out there planning weddings that don’t mind if a candle has been in a candle holder before for the sake of saving a little money ;)

So if you are interested in my wedding dress and/or the decorations – check out these two Craig’s list ads:

And on that note….I also have a couple adorable prom dresses that need a new home as well!

Let me know if you have any questions or if you want to come check it out by leaving a comment below! :)

Oh! And all items that are listed are still available. Items removed as they are picked up.

Huntington Beach Portrait Photography - { The Miller Family : Family Portraits! }

I don’t even know where to start when it comes to the Miller family. Ron has honestly been one of the most influential and most helpful people in my life (to say the very least). Ron was my youth pastor in High school. He was there before my dad got sick, helped as much as any one could while he was sick (always visiting my dad at the hospital, bringing him magazines, watching races, and reading the bible with him) , and was there to help with all of the funeral arrangements when he passed away. He also helped me in such huge ways after we lost him. I have no idea where I would be today if it were not for Ron and all he has done for me and my father. Amy has to be one of the sweetest people I have ever met, her and Ron could not be any more perfect for each other. Since I had seen Ron and Amy last, they have had two beautiful children to complete their amazing family - Sam and Sophie . When Amy contacted me about taking Christmas photos of their family - I don’t think I could have been any more excited to do it for them!

(I know this is a pretty long post, but I’m sure Amy is excited to see the pictures!)

Ron and Amy - Thanks so much for the opportunity to take your photos and get to know your little ones, I hope we get to see each other much sooner than later!
