“Romance novels are birthday cake and life is often peanut butter and jelly. I think everyone should have lots of delicious romance novels lying around for those times when the peanut butter of life gets stuck to the roof of your mouth.” ― Janet Evanovich

Single best wedding advice- do our receiving line via pouring beer & wine immediately following our ceremony. Such a great way to greet friends and family at our reception! Thank you for the idea Mary- aka the First Lady of Beer. Cigars in Scotland soon? Cool. 🙃🍻✨
Good morning everyone! How’s it already the end of January! Man this year is already flying by. So before it does, let me finish telling you about my sweet boys.
A few weeks ago I told you about my little 3 year old Axel and today I wanted to tell you a bit about my 5 year old Cieran.
So this is Cieran Ryker (pronounced “S-ear-an”). His name is always getting mispronounced, haha but that’s ok because I’m pretty sure I made it up. When we were trying to come up with names, we liked the name Kieran, like the actor Kieran Culkin, but there was something off that I couldn’t put my finger on. So who know how I did it but I was like how about Cieran and that was basically the end of that. I don’t think he will have to worry about too many kids having his name while growing up lol. And his middle name Ryker is just something we liked. It has no family ties other than coming from my Dutch heritage.
So about Cieran. First of all he is the sweetest kid. He has the kindest most caring heart I know. His ability to empathize with other people at the young age of 5 is so amazing to me. He really and truly cares how people are feeling.
He is in his last year of preschool before he heads off kindergarten this fall and I can’t believe he is already at this stage of life. He loves school and all his teachers. He gets so excited to go everyday.
Cieran loves to learn and ask questions. He is very inquisitive and has the ability to retain most of what he learns. He is so smart and I love his curiosity about all things.
Cieran could probably live at a park. Haha he loves loves playing at the park. He says he hates the rain because it makes it so he can’t play at the sand park. He just loves the outdoors and loves to explore.
To end it all, I am so proud of how he is as a big brother. He loves his little brother like no other and is always looking out for him. I can’t wait to watch my boys grow up together 😍 .
Looking through my Instagram feed I noticed that I rarely share bridal party images! I have no idea why because it’s one of my favorite parts of the wedding day! Choosing the members of your bridal party is such an important part of wedding planning, do you go big with all your closest friends or small with just your family? No matter what size just make sure it’s full of supportive people who are helpful and positive and can make sure you have some FUN on your wedding day! How many members were in your bridal party? I had 5!💕 #mgpweddings#meagangibsonphotography
Those about to married feels! Have you thought about writing your own vows, but feel like you’d be too nervous to say them in front of guests? Consider writing them in a personal letter to your fiancée instead. Have it delivered by a bridal party member when you’re getting ready, or even read them to each other in private during your first look or sunset photos! I guarantee it’ll be one of your favorite parts of your day!
It never occurred to me that I should mention I'm LGBT friendly, and cannabis friendly, and... just friendly! Of course I have a commitment to diversity & inclusion, and I feel terrible there's a potential someone wanted to work with me but was unsure how I'd respond to their love or their ideas. My bad. I was recently interviewed by @brides and shared my thoughts on love & marij (shout out to @loveandmarij 🙌🏼🤣🍁) Link in my bio rn.
