Oh I cannot wait for an entire wedding day of these giggles! FOUR months to go!!
I love these two and everything they are to one another and the new beautiful family they created when they got married. There’s nothing quite as beautiful as embracing your rainy wedding and running with it!
Sage and I are on a mission. A mission to find the very best doughnuts in Jacksonville. Why? Well, because, why not?!
We began our journey with research. Asking our friends where they think is best, googling and going off of where we've eaten before. We also decided we needed a control. At each doughnut place we will order one glazed doughnut and each get something that interests us.
So this past Wednesday, we headed out to Good Dough. We ordered our three doughnuts while we drooled over the case. We've been there before and one thing I LOVE about Good Dough is that you can get there 2 hours before they close, like we did, and they still have an amazing selection of doughnuts. We aren't morning people, so that's pretty key for us.
We got one glazed doughnut to share. Sage ordered a "Birthday Cake" doughnut and I ordered a "blueberry cake" doughnut. I had this vision that I would be able to take these beautiful photos of the doughnuts before they were consumed, but my kids wanted to dive right into these gorgeous, mouthwatering treats. So, this is the best I got.
I will give Good Dough that, the doughnuts are beautiful. Not exactly as pictured on their website (this is me being super picky because when I looked ahead at the website, the cookie monster doughnut had big chunks of chocolate chip cookies and I really wanted that, but not chunks in the store), but beautiful. And you eat with your eyes, first, so score for Good Dough!
Sage had about 3 bites of hers and then asked for a cheese burger. See, Good Dough is quite sweet, even for a five year old. Leo, however, had no problems. We ordered 2 cheeseburgers to share (not pictured because WOAH! Those are messy!!) They were good, yet under seasoned.
Our general feelings were that Good Dough is just that, Good. But we've never bitten into one and said "Wow, this is the best doughnut I've ever had!" So the search continues.
I am so beyond blessed to be a part of Nicole and Matt's wedding. Nicole is just one of the most thoughtful souls you could ever meet. Together, they are perfect. only 3 weeks to go, guys!!!

I am so excited for these two. I love their sense of adventure and love for each other. Congratulations, Chelsea and Seth!!
I am so happy to have been a part of your beautiful January wedding. The weather was positively perfect and Nicole looked amazing. But what I loved the most was Nicole and Jeremy together. Congratulations, Nicole and Jeremy!
Eek! I have been so excited to share this lovely wedding. It was a freezing day in January, but you'd never know it to look at their smiles. I am so happy for Hallie and Ari. Congratulations, you two!
I am so happy for these two. There was so much love in that room for them and for the wonderful community they are a part of. Congratulations, Christie and Nathan!
All day long I found myself breathless over the beauty of Christina and Matt's wedding day. From the perfect "December in Florida" weather, to the flowers, all the way to Matt's grin every time he glanced at his bride, I had a hard time wiping my own smile off my face. As a couple, they have already demonstrated so much strength and courage while they navigate their Navy life. I am so happy for them as they continue their journey together. Congratulations, Christina and Matt!!
This wedding was so beautiful and emotional. Amanda and Alex are the kind of people that you just want to know. You can tell that they are loyal to those they love and have such a kind spirit. I am so happy for them. We made it through their rainy day engagement shoot and were rewarded with one of the most perfect days 2016 had to offer. Congratulations, you two!
While I've known Hallie for years and years, this was the first time I have met Ari. These two must have the most beautiful spirits I have ever met. I am so happy for you two! Congratulations, Hallie & Ari!!
Ahh, I loved this day so much. There was a slight chill in the air that made the hot chocolate bar that much more delicious! And I forgot how cold I was the moment Sylvia and Anthony were together. These two can warm a room with their smiles. Congratulations, you guys! I am so happy for you!
