Colleen+John * Murfreesboro Wedding Photography*

Happy Monday everyone! I know in my last post I said that I would have Colleen and John's wedding pictures up within the week, but it has almost been a month since I last blogged. Not only am I terrible at blogging, something I promised myself again over the weekend I was going to get better at, but also the past month has been a bit crazy. To quickly fill you in, the day of Colleen and John's wedding I arrived at the church and began unloading my equipment. I had not even made my second trip back to the car when my cell phone rang. It was my neighbor who with panic in her voice said, " Your backdoor was just kicked in by a robber". Well, as you can imagine I got that terrible feeling in the pit of my stomach as she told me what was happening. As she explained how the events had unfolded I can honestly say I wasn't so much worried about my belongings as much as I was about my precious babies, Kiya and Delilah. Yes, they are dogs. They are actually laying at my feet cowering at the thunder storm as I type. The police had been called to the scene, but they instructed that no one was to enter the home until they arrived. My fiance was the second person to get to the house and he said he immediately tried to yell for the dogs but didn't hear a sound.  Well, if you know us or our dogs you know that is COMPLETELY unlike them, so then the worry was magnified. I will not get into the delayed response time from police... That is for another blog, however, more than 30 minutes had passed before I got the call back that everything was okay. I have encountered many stresses while shooting weddings, but this was a first for sure. So, to somewhat excuse my lack of blogging, I will say that we have made many changes around the house, attended a neighborhood watch meeting, and are a bit more prepared (if you can be) for an incident such as this. I apologize for the delay in posts, but aim to do much better in the future. For now, check out some pictures from Colleen and John's wedding! It was truly a beautiful day for a lovely couple to commit their lives to one another. Colleen is a dear friend of mine and I feel so fortunate I got to capture her special day.  Their ceremony was so incredibly sweet and I must admit I shed a few tears while they exchanged their vows ( another first for me). It could have been the stress from the morning, but I honestly feel it was pure happiness for this beautiful couple. I wish you both the best and look forward to sharing in your wonderful journey as you build your new life together.  Congrats again John and Colleen!
