Happy St. Patrick’s Day y’all! In honor of the holiday, I have to take a minute to tell the SW ladies how lucky I am to know them. I took these candid iPhone pics of them recently and they really show what I love about a day in the office with the five of us. I wake up every day and can’t wait to get to work with Laura, Kirstin, Lindsey and Katie. I feel like the luckiest Irish girl in the world to know these women. We’ve had so many good memories, successes, challenges we’ve overcome together, and SO much ahead of us!  Happy St. Patty’s Day!  xo Lara

So, why do you feel lucky today? Leave a comment here (or reply to me on Twitter) and I’ll choose a winner at random to receive an SW swag bag.

    I feel SO lucky today because it is also my 23rd BIRTHDAY! How {lucky} is that?!

  2. avatar Eliza reply

    I feel lucky today for so many reasons. First , in the tough times that we are in right now, I have a job. It may not be my dream job, but it is a job. And of course, for my amazing fiance who makes my life better than I ever thought it could be and my amazing family and friends who support me and love me { especially during all this wedding stress :o) }. Even though things can get tough, these people make me feel like the luckiest girl every day.

    My grandfather was Irish and a big part of my life. Many of our family gatherings were deeply rooted in Irish traditions. Unfortunately, he didn’t live to see me engaged or married. But today, I feel lucky knowing that he is watching down on me and giving me his favorite Irish wedding blessing:Here’s to lying, cheating, stealing, and drinking.If you lie, may you lie together.If you cheat, may you cheat the devil.If you steal, may you steal each other’s hearts.And if you drink, may we all drink to your happiness.

    I am the luckiest girl today because I’m moving in with my wonderful fiancé and planning our Southern wedding in Nashville, TN!

  5. avatar Lizz reply

    I’m SO lucky in SO many ways. I am healthy (I guess), I have a loving family, loving fiance and loving friends. I have a job that I love in the midst of recession. I am able to plan a wedding for the closest people in our lives without many complications. Yet you can take away every materialistic thing I own and I’m still so lucky to have love in my life =)

  6. avatar Hayley reply

    i feel luck today, because 7 months from this moment, i’ll be at the salon getting ready to marry the irish man of my dreams…and so next st. patty’s day i can be irish by association =)

  7. avatar Clara reply

    I am lucky today because my FILs are very flexible about our wedding planning. They are being sure to arrange their side of things with the least amount of complications they can. This doesn’t mean no complications, but at least they are trying very hard.

    Wow! Gorgeous photo of you girls :). Why I am so lucky: I’ve begun to appreciate the whimsical beauty of my neighborhood. Since I live in Berkeley, Calfornia, the old time folk who live around me come from a hippie generation. This is evident in the way they decorate their home and lawn. When I’m on my daily walk, I see loveliness with each house I pass — a bright blue house with fresh white blooms on the planter box hanging from the windows, a pale rose house with bright yellow bluebells spilling over into the sidewalk, a stately brick house with rose bushes and trees with huge, fragrant flowers, a mint green house with a winding pathway to the front door, hanging bottles of vintage drinks, wooden gates with arches and wild vines weaving through them, kids selling lemonade for a quarter, etc. Dreamy, isn’t it?

  9. avatar Emily reply

    I feel lucky today becuase in these tough economic times, I have a job, unlike many of my friends. I’m lucky to be engaged to a wonderful man and be planning the wedding of my dreams. I’m lucky becuase I have a family who loves me. I’m also lucky to be sitting at work reading this blog to start my day. ;)Thanks for this post – It’s not often I sit and think about how truly lucky I am.

    I feel lucky today b/c God has blessed me with health, 2 beautiful daughters, a funny and successful hubby, extended family, friends, a home, all utilities, clothes, cars, the ability to get out of debt and continuing to do so, etc. I’m SO lucky to serve and AWESOME God! :-)

  25. avatar Lisa T reply

    I feel lucky to be marrying my best friend this year!

  26. avatar Ivy reply

    i feel lucky today because of the 8 wonderful bridesmaids who will stand by me as a take the leap in just 5 months! They are remarkable women who inspire me every day.

  27. avatar Kristen reply

    I am lucky because I am marrying my best friend and man of my dreams next month. I am lucky because so far, my job has survived the recession, and we are making ends meet. I am lucky because I have a loving family and a nephew (also my ring bearer) who turns 3 today — a St. Patty’s baby!

  28. avatar Nali P. reply

    I feel lucky to be here, present in this moment.

  29. avatar Brittany reply

  30. avatar Katie reply

    I feel lucky because next January I get to marry my very own Patrick. Without getting too mushy, he is sweet, caring and a whole host of wonderful adjectives. I feel fortunate that he came into my life seven years ago.

  31. avatar Erica Velasco reply

    I’m so lucky because I’m still here plugging away!

  32. avatar Kricia Morris reply

    I feel lucky because I was blessed enough to meet all of you last week in Pensacola! I’m already seeing results from your advice and teachings. Love you guys!!

  33. avatar Tena Marie reply

    We all have so many reasons for which we are lucky. Many a time, we forget how to recognize the positives in our lives and are constantly bogged down with thinking about the negatives. I think it’s wonderful that SW reminded us today to take a moment to appreciate the good things we all have going for us.Today, I feel most lucky to be engaged to a magnificent man who has made some huge life changing decisions so that we will be able to have the type of life he feels we deserve. I finally found the love of my life!

  34. avatar ggsb reply

    I’m lucky that I’m Irish, and that both my FI and I have jobs we enjoy in this current economic downfall. We’re both healthy and in less than 3 months we’ll be surrounded by those whom we love the most as we become official at our wedding which we will have paid for completely (no wedding debt). I’m also lucky in that we have the cutest rescue mutt in the world :)

  35. avatar Stephanie reply

    I feel lucky…because the ring on my finger still makes me smile just as hard as the first day I got it!

  36. avatar Kristen reply

    I feel lucky that through photography I’m able to work from my home office… and sneak away for a run on this gorgeous spring day! :)

  37. avatar LeRae reply

    I feel lucky because Spring has sprung and I get a girls night out tonight!

  38. avatar Elizabeth reply

    I feel lucky because I am blessed to be married to the most incredible man – he is forever telling me how much he loves me and I feel so loved! We are living out our dreams together. I feel lucky because even though we are all married now, my sisters and I still live in the same area and can see each other as often as we want. We are very close.I feel lucky because I have the ability to get up each day and come to a job that, even though it’s not my dream job, has been a financial blessing to my family.I could go on and on! We are truly blessed!

  39. avatar Lusineh reply

    I feel lucky enough to be here today to even type this! I feel lucky because everyday I wake up and know that I have a loving family who has always given me unparalleled support in everything I do or have ever decided to do in my life! I feel lucky because I have an amazing set of sisters that bring a smile to my face each and every day. I feel lucky to be with my high school sweetheart of 11 years whom I will marry this year in October. I feel lucky to have my beautiful creative niece who is full of life and energy. I feel lucky to have the most adorable 6 year old nephew who can take all the stress away as soon as I see him! I feel lucky to have a father who is still thankfully here today to tell me stories of his childhood! I feel lucky to have the most wonderful mother that is always putting us first and never ever complaining about life! I am lucky each day to breathe even when I have the worst allergies and have a cough attack every 20 minutes! I don’t just feel lucky, I AM LUCKY!

  40. avatar Abbie reply

    I am lucky for SO many reasons… that I am marrying my best friend in just over 4 months after nearly 7 years together, that our friends and family are doing what they can to share such a special moment with us, and that our loved ones that can’t make it will fill our hearts with joy as if they were here.

  41. avatar Meegan reply

    I feel so lucky because no matter how many things seem to go wrong with the planning of my wedding, my wonderful FI and supporting friends are ALWAYS there to make me remember the important things. To never miss a moment of happiness because of a cloudy day.

  42. avatar Amber reply

    I feel lucky today not only because I have my company but because I have a great family. My son was diagnosed with Autism last week and it’s hit me pretty hard. We have huge life adjustments coming up…everything from diet changes to therapy appointments to special daycare. I don’t think I could make it alone, my family has been such a huge rock.

  43. avatar Livi reply

    i am lucky because i have love

  44. avatar Sarah B. reply

    I feel lucky because the sun was shining today…my fiance comes home for a visit this weekend…I just found a new teaching position for next school year even though jobs are slim pickings this year…and SPRING BREAK is coming up! :)

  45. avatar PDXBride reply

    Oh I hope it is a lucky day!!!

  46. avatar lef reply

    I think lucky is just another word for blessed and that I am! Everything isn’t perfect in life but I am blessed with an amazing and supportive family and wonderful friends. If that is luck then I’ll take it!

  47. avatar Kelly reply

    I am so lucky!! I have the most amazing friends and famliy, they are my rock! I have the best fiance in the world and I thank God everyday for bringing him into my life. I also have the best job in the world- I’m a zookeeper and I work with Grizzly bears! I truly feel that I am so blessed and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life being blissfully happy!

  48. avatar Sandra reply

    I feel lucky today because I have awesome friends! Because of my great friends, I have been busy every weekend since sometime in January. I loved every minute of them, but have enjoyed a day of rest today.

  49. avatar chandra reply

    I am lucky to have a wonderful fiance, a stable job, and loving friends and family. What more could you ask for?

  50. avatar Kate reply

    I am feeling lucky! And grateful for all the things I’ve been lucky enough to have (friends, family, a home, and everything else)!

  51. avatar Angelique T. reply

    I definitely feel lucky for a loving family and great girlfriends! I feel lucky for my fiance, but most of all…I feel lucky to marry him in 5 short months!

  52. avatar Lauryn reply

    I feel super lucky because God has truly blessed each part of my life. I have beautiful friends, crazy but loving family, and my biggest prayer was answered…finding my fiance. I get to go to work everyday (which is pretty awesome these days.) Things are going really wonderful after a long hard time. Im really lucky that God listens and loves me enough to bless me!

  53. avatar B Kotal reply

    I feel so lucky because I have been blessed with a wonderful family, fiance, and friends!

Thank You

by in In The Office, News on

It has been a little over a week since I returned from WPPI and what a week it has been!  I just wanted to stop and say thank you.  This past week has been jam-packed with new opportunities, new friendships, new inspiration, and I am pretty sure Google thinks I’m nuts for adding so many fresh photographers to my feed reader over the last few days. Thank you all for continuing the fun and inspiring energy long after the lights of Vegas faded!

Here’s a quick pic from WPPI taken by Kyle Barnes (be sure to check out Kyle’s Southern Wedding of the Week Part I, Part II, Part III, and Part IV).  From left to right: top row- Joel Serrato, Jose Villa, Scott Chester, Fred Egan, Erik Clausen aka Poser, Jory Cordy, Whitney Chamberlin, mystery gentleman, Cameron Ingalls, bottom row- Millie Holloman, Cristen Chester, Jesse Chamberlin, Kirstin, Harmony Walton from the Bridal Bar, me, Kyle Barnes, and Jeff Newsom.

ps… SW is excited to once again sponsor the powerhouse group of photographers known as the Mammoth Men on their upcoming trip to Salt Lake.  Feel like you need a vacation? Stay tuned to the Mammoth Men Blog and follow them on twitter for the cure to your workday blues.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

 

 

 

Have a fun weekend y’all!

We rarely post personal things here but I have to say happy birthday to my mom.  She is the reason I fell in love with entertaining, flowers, design, art and these celebrations of love that we share with you every day.  And she actually reads this blog, so I really wanted to tell her how much I love her! (ps- she won a 5k this morning.  What a great way to celebrate your birthday!) I am so proud of you mom and wish I could be with you today.

    Thanks so much for all of these sweet words… she loved the post. Started crying, said she was so flattered I’d share my love for her with the world ; ) Not that hard to do, really.David, I can’t take credit for any of the boards you see here. I do one in a blue moon now thanks to Kirstin and Lindsey. It’s fun to get to do one when I get a chance though! — lara

    Aw man she was at the party and I didn’t get to meet her! Happy birthday mommy Lara.
