Necklaces and earrings are great 'n all, but we love a little hand bling to take your outfit to the next level. Take a closer look at our Andorra 14k gold filled handlet at the link in bio. ⠀
I love this incredible moment captured in Cambodia, and it reminded me of this verse in Psalms 100:5 “For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.” Young or old, God will never stop being faithful to us, and He'll never stop loving us. What a perfect picture of different generations coming together for one purpose of serving God together. (📷: @ehimages)
Angela on the way to see her groom for their first look. The photos leading up to the moment they see each other are always my favorite. ⠀

What a week! We laughed, we cried, we tried new things (like this awesome Yoga class!) and we renovated Mama Margarita's home with support from our new friends at @athleta and @bewhatspossible. Loved seeing everyone step out of their comfort zone this week- after all that's where growth begins! What is one thing you can you do to step out of your comfort zone this week?🌟
I'm going to double post because I have really exciting news to share 🤷🏼♀️ YOU GUYS. You know what makes me more happy than holding adorable puppies!?!? BOOKING 5 WEDDINGS THIS MONTH. (4 JUST THIS WEEK!!!!!) I am always so honored when people put all of their trust in me to capture their special day, and it's not something I take lightly.

I am so excited for all of the wonderful moments filled with love that are going to unfold in front of my camera. Thank you thank you thank you with all of my heart.
#truthbomb . Recent events have had me looking at life through a different lense; appreciating everything in a different way. While it is fulfilling to achieve goals you have set for yourself, it is just as important to enjoy all the moments of the journey to get there. If we constantly have our eyes ahead to the next important goal your life will pass you by.
I'm super vocal about being a "recovering perfectionist," so if you are too, I AM WITH YOU GIRL!! 🙌🏻I am in that season. Day by day. Soak those moments in. 💕
Hand-lettered vows = one of my new favorite things!! I got the privilege of being a vendor for a styled shoot a couple weeks ago and am SO excited to be sharing some of the lettering I did for the shoot!! Hand lettered vows were my favorite! They were perfect to lay the details on!!😍 The rest of the amazing vendors made this shoot incredibly beautiful and are as follows: 📷 @tiffanyamcclure

Tough day? We've all been there...and we've all managed to find a way out. Sometimes all you need is a single voice in your ear cheering you on. Consider this my cyber-whisper. See you on the other side!
Trying to knock out as much work as possible since hubby and I are going to Paris in exactly a week!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 Just delivered photos to @thewillowsisters, and this is one of my favorite sibling sessions to date. Not only are these girls crazy talented singers, but they are insanely beautiful and have an amazing sense of style. As always, huge shout out to @thecoppercloset for super cute boho clothes!
Summertime and the living is easy. Well, actually this summer has felt a bit "off" for various reasons. We are feeling desperate to soak up its glory before the first school bell rings. So we're revisiting our summer lists o' fun and making a plan to add lots of check marks!
If you need to fun your way out of a summer slump, listen to Hot Fun In The Summertime.

Can I be forgiven? What is the Bible? Where will I spend eternity? Have you been asked any of these questions or asked them yourself?
We all have questions in our Christian walk. At the beginning, they are simple and get more complicated as we learn more about God. This booklet was designed to help you grow from a new believer, with the simple questions, and show you how to use your Bible to find the answers to the harder questions! Available in English and Spanish. #productwithapurpose
Ohhh these streets of Savannah are calling my name. Sometimes I wish I could be vacationing somewhere new, every week. I know that would definitely get tiring...but it sounds kind of amazing right now.
Am I the only one? Where would you go first?
Back to real life.. tonight was pretty awesome! Met with one of our February bride and grooms and her maid of honor over sushi... let me tell ya... it was a blast! Delicious food and great company always equals an awesome night! I really love our couples and am so grateful for each and every one of them❤️🙌🏼 Bring onnnn Friday!!!🎶🤗 #adventureswiththemcclures#tmpweddings#tmpbrides
My prop from Lauren + Sean's wedding says it all! I do love this guy and today we celebrate our 16 year Anniversary! 🎉
My hubby is my rock which makes perfect sense with a name like Brock 😉😂. Okay, I'm a bit cheesy but only because my Anniversary gift is like SO SO...SO amazing.
I'll give you a hint, if you know me or pay attention to details at all lol, you know that I've not had one of these for TEN years...so the hashtag #worththewait is totally ideal here. 😄
Swipe left to get a mini preview of what my best friend, best husband, best Dad to our girls bought me. I'm feeling very thankful and blessed. Love you babe! @brockaron 😘💍.
P.S. Thanks to our past Groom @brandonaprahamian for our fun photo! You rocked the camera 🙌.
And then some nights you just want to put on a ball gown and walk around NYC at twilight with your best guy.
Currently home on the couch but a girl can dream, right?

Instagram has been a wonderful tool for growing our @sonsofsawdust business. Just about every major sponsorship, collaboration, opportunity and major client has come through the avenue of Instagram. But it's not about numbers, it's about growing a community. I was super honored to speak about some tips and pointers I've learned along the way at the @athensmade Social Lab series held at @creaturecomfortsbeer. The video of highlights from my talk is online now(link in my profile). I hope it inspires those of you looking to grow your business ❤️
The styling for Heidi and Jamal's wedding was gorgeous. I saw the bridesmaid dresses and fell in love. Gold sequined gowns. Just stunning. I also loved Heidi's choice of flowers, her gown, everything just fit.

What's one win you're celebrating? ✨👑🎉
"The vision that God has given you is solely for you to birth. Everything about it will have your features, attributes and it will reflect YOU! Yes the contractions of the delivery of the Vision are coming back to back and right at the point that you cannot last another moment, God tells you to PUSH! Trust the Vision that God has given you. Trust the Visionary and know that it will come to past!"~LibFiles

If only ice cream calories didn't count and every day could be like this! ☕️Had an awesome engagement session with one of my 2018 couples tonight, worked on some editing, and now enjoying a strawberry popsicle. Life is good friends. ❤️
When we flew to Amelia Island on Saturday, I was sipping white wine, looking out the window at the fluffy, white clouds, listening to great music and sitting beside my husband. All was right. And I felt blessed.
So what did I do?
I opened my laptop and started writing.
Today, I edited it a bit, added all the pictures I took from the plane and published it!
It is the ramblings of Dedra. I let my mind go and my fingers followed. I'd be honored if you would give it a read||link in profile||

Hooray for Friyay! Soft boiled eggs and avocado on spelt sourdough with dukkah spices. Hot English breakfast tea. Mandarin prop stacking by Master 3 - his last sick day at home. He's back to school next week.
Master 3 and me have just spent the last hour or so outside in the glorious sunshine, replanting our parsely, sage and mint, watering plants and other things, severely pruning the hydrageas, and collecting all the signs from the cumquat tree. The children had hung 'No' signs on many branches to notify the cheeky and very noisy cockatoos they weren't happy with them stealing all their kumquats. They haven't been back. I'm not sure if the signs worked or all the paper in the tree ... 🤔 (see stories)
My #teacher heart flutters when I walk into a store and am greeted with bins upon bins. I may not be teaching anymore but getting that classroom organized was one of my favorite parts ❤️ thanks @target for having so many cute and affordable bins!! Teacher friends, don't miss out!! #targetdollarspot
The Eve of bachelorette mania. Let the festivities begin! Not too early or too late. Apparently it is suppose to rain all weekend but I could care less as long as I'm hanging out with my friends and family. I hope we reenact part of Bridesmaids 🙈🤣🤗🙌🏻💙
Homemade glass rollerbottle blends make gettin' my daily dose of EOs easy. I take these little wellness gems literally anywhere for literally any reason (seasonal, hormone, digestive and respiratory support, to name a few)
Throwing back two weeks where I'm making some baby-ready concoctions with the cutest preggo. This pic made me realize something that makes this oily business extra beautiful:

The travel bug has bitten again and we scheduled and impromptu trip to Switzerland for my 30th Birthday/ 5 year wedding anniversary in October!
If you could take a impromptu trip where would you go? Double tap if you are itching for a little location freedom 🌍
Today was a lovely day on the farm (even in this heat wave!) We picked berries, played in the sprinkler and sat around the kitchen table snapping beans while the children sang. Home in all its glory. ❤️
Mother has the touch when it comes to fig trees!
@sonderwood and I are finally watching Rogue One (now that it's on Netflix, we never end up going to the movies despite our best intentions). I just don't get Star Wars, I'm sorry #notsorry . So instead of watching I'll post another sneak peek of these two lovebirds and try to run out the clock on this movie 🙈 @laurenegar @mderuyter @afortieralistbeauty.ca
