These were from Cade's first day at home. He is so lucky to have so many people that loe him and that were here to meet him. It has been a mindnumbing experience these last 3 weeks, but we love our little boy and we are desperately trying to be the best parents for him that we can be. So many times we have felt like we are letting him down, but we aren't giving up!
Look at that little hand.

This is pretty much how we feel all the time now!!
Well, this was the weekend before Dawn gave birth to Cade, so that is why I am a bit late with this post. So Jonathan, Kristen and I headed to Jekyll Island for a very laid back wedding at the Jekyll Club Hotel. We have gotten to shoot at the Hotel a lot this year and I have to say that it is one of my favorite places to shoot. There is always something different that you can do. I kept my fingers crossed the whole day that Dawn wouldn't go into labor!!
Kristen got this shot of one of the groomsmen doing Yoga in the Tom's room!!
Her dress. I loved it because it wasn't your typical wedding dress. Cameos are a big thing for Megan Tom getting ready
Loved this shot of Megan doing her makeup
Here's the beautiful bride right before the ceremony
Jonathan and Kristen hard at work, haha!! I am the only one that does anything at weddings, I bring them along for the entourage feel. A cameo for her necklace Tom and his Dad In the entryway of Faith Chapel, dig the light
Croquet after the ceremony was over
Jonathan chasing butterflies!!
I'm not sure, I think Jonathan has a few mental issues. Glad I'm sane!!! I just love this shot
Back at croquet
Jonathan taking yet another break Tom taking it easy before the ceremony After the ceremony, I love this moment Megan on her own outside Crane Cottage On the croquet lawn At the reception during sunset. One of the things I love about The Jekyll Club is the beautiful sunsets that you can see from the lawn.
Thanks for letting us be a part of your day you guys. Be safe when you are overseas!!!
We have been so happy enjoying Cade that we realized that we were keeping him all to ourself. These are some more pictures from the hospital, I will post some more tonight from when we brought him home!
I love this little boy!!
