Baby Boy or Baby Girl?

We can’t wait to meet him!

I won’t deny I would have been pretty excited to have another excuse to go nuts with pink, pearls and peonies, but my gut feeling this whole time has been that we’re having a boy (you could even say it was meant to be). As an only child and never having had a brother I am certainly in for a lot of learning – I know it’ll be a wonderful journey!

Gary and I have been having fun planning the nursery and even went and bought our crib after the ultrasound on Tuesday :) As I suspected things are definitely starting to feel more real and February 17th seems not so far away anymore. The next big task is choosing a name – we have a short list but interestingly now that we know we’re having a boy it wasn’t as simple as just picking one, we have yet to decide . . .

That’s all the updates for now,

Congrats guys, you will be wonderful parents. Get ready for a wild, scary, exciting and beautiful journey that is worth every moment.

Jodi McVeySeptember 27, 2012 - 11:11 PM

Very exciting! Congrats!

Sue FredenburgSeptember 28, 2012 - 3:33 PM

So happy for you! Sometimes it’s kinda neat to be the only female in houseful of men…

Margaret McDowell ReevesSeptember 28, 2012 - 3:50 PM

Well, amazingly enough Terry Reeves was right again! So excited for you both. It was wonderful to see you and get to spend a few hours this past weekend. I am so glad to see God working in your lives. Love & Kisses! Gigi

Erin – what an exciting time for you & Gary! Your life will change drastically but it is so worth it! Just imagine having a little Gary running around the house (HA). Will be praying for these next 5 months to go by smoothly! Can’t wait to see more updates soon!

Jessica BrueggerOctober 22, 2012 - 10:37 PM

Yay! That is so weird that I had a feeling it would be a boy too! Cant wait to meet him next year!

YAY! Congrats Erin – I am so happy for you! xo Moya

It’s Time for Another Wedding Adventure

It’s time for another wedding adventure in another state, this time Tennessee! I’m excited to get there and spend time with a number of people I don’t see enough of, namely my mom who’ll be a wedding guest, me and Gary’s prior youth minister who is officiating the ceremony and his wife, and especially the bride and her family who have been in my life for almost half of it! The Father of the Bride officiated our wedding ceremony four years ago and I can’t wait to capture the special moments that will unfold for this special family and couple. Now, to finish packing! See you soon, Katie and Jared!

P.S. We find out a few days after we get back whether Baby Davenport is a boy or girl, I am ready ready ready!

Britta Willeford EdwardsSeptember 19, 2012 - 3:25 AM

Enjoy every moment with the precious people you mentioned. I’m imagining the beautiful and artistic photos you will capture of Katie and Jared’s wedding!!

Margaret McDowell ReevesSeptember 19, 2012 - 8:24 PM

I cannot wait to see you and to watch as you capture the special moments with pictures. I love weddings that are also reunions!

Diane AdamsSeptember 19, 2012 - 9:19 PM

How exciting that you’re doing the photos, Erin. It will be a great re-union!

A Copper Mountain Wedding | Beth & Trinity

Beth and Trinity were married at Copper Mountain Chapel in the Colorado Rockies. The weather that day went back and forth between overcast to sprinkles and even a downpour at one point, but that didn’t at all dampen the spirits of these two as they shared their special day with their families and closest friends.

Beth’s Ritani engagement ring is still one of my favorite rings I’ve seen in person. The feel for the day was inspired by wildflowers. A friend of Beth’s family arranged the reception florals and the girls bouquets.
Beth’s gown was Maggie Sottero, I loved the combination of lace, beading and flowers! The detail at the top of Beth’s veil is orange blossoms from her grandmother’s wedding dress.Reverend Gary Bryant officiated their ceremony.The reception took place just up the road at the Grand Hall at Copper Station. Below is Beth and Trinity’s engagement album which I designed to also serve as their guest book :) Among all their favorite photos from their engagement session was space for guests to write them notes and respond to prompts such as “When could you first tell we were in love?” “Beth & Trinity are perfect together because. . .” “What is the secret to a happy marriage?” “Give us some advice for our first year.” etc. I love this because rather than a guest book that will rarely be looked at after the wedding (ours was a traditional guest book and is in a box somewhere) this has much more draw as something to be kept out and enjoyed!

The misty view from the patio of the reception.

Trinity and Beth are major Star Wars fans, so I wasn’t surprised to find Han Solo and Princess Leia atop their wedding cake!They danced their first dance to Matthew West, My Favorite Part. Family dances are often my favorite part of a reception, such sweet moments! The entertainment for the evening was The New Classics Band, they were awesome! Gary and I highly recommend them. Trinity and Beth, thank you for sharing your wonderful day with me and Gary – we loved meeting your families and friends and so enjoyed capturing the details and special moments for you. Wishing you the very best in your new lives as Mr. and Mrs.!

Jess WithamFebruary 12, 2013 - 1:10 PM

Awesome job once again Erin! I made a photo book as a guest book too! I also made them for 2 of the weddings I was in last year! I think they are such a great idea!

Gwen ChapmanFebruary 12, 2013 - 1:12 PM

Photos by Gina Zeidler

After 10 happy years together and four years of marriage Gary and I are saying “hello” to a completely new phase of life – we’re happy to share that we are expecting our first little one, due mid-February 2013!

I’m reminded after the wonderful weekend we just had with Gina and Amanda (both such inspiring and beautiful women) of my time at Making Things Happen and of the pre-visualization exercise we did to imagine what our lives would be like in five years. The picture that painted itself in my head is such a happy one and it will be interesting to see whether my imagination was right in predicting the gender of this baby . . .

Thank you family, friends and clients for your support and for sharing in our joy and excitement!

Lots of love,

Jodi McVeyAugust 20, 2012 - 9:08 PM
