Coffee Talk Mondays

I’m Stephanie Messick, a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Warrenton, VA. Whether I’m by the mountains in Virginia or the ocean on the Florida Gulf Coast, my soul feels right at home, surrounded by rural living and the raw beauty of nature. I genuinely love what I do, and feel so passionate to share the enthusiasm and joy of these celebrations with you!

light chaser, dreamer, go-getter.

This is a short and sweet post because last week involved a lot of editing, but also a nice sense of adventure!! πŸ™‚ This week will be a week of more editing, more settling into our house (we have our first official guests staying with us in a few weeks!!!), and a TON of client packaging!!! Between getting married and completely relocating my business, I have months of packaging I need to send out. I love wrapping pretty presents to send out so I cannot wait for my couples/lifestyle clients to have their pretty gifts in the mailbox soon!!! It’s going to be a pretty packed week but I cannot wait to cross off these items off my master to-do list. πŸ™‚ Aside from the computer work I did, check out what my week consisted of below!

COFFEE TALK

MOCHA MOMENTS
THE SWEETER MEMORIES FROM THIS PAST MONTH

1
MORRISON SPRINGS, FLORIDA

Alex just so happened to have some time off a couple of afternoons this past week. We decided to do something Florida is known for β€” The incredible springs!!!! It was UNREAL. Absolutely incredible. I’ve never seen such blue and clear water in my life! Although, it was also the coldest water as it is a consistent 68-degrees all year long. It reminded me of the swim team days jumping into a freezing 5:30 AM outdoor pool! Haha! I loved experiencing it with Alex, but I want to go back with the intention of snorkeling some more. πŸ™‚ And maybe without the knowledge of water moccasins. But I loved adventuring with my man on our two month anniversary! πŸ™‚

LIZ’S BACHELORETTE WEEKEND!!!

Liz is getting MARRIED in a couple of weeks!!! EEEEEPPPP!!! Crazy how the time has flown by. πŸ™‚ She told me she wanted a relaxing outdoorsy time in Chincoteague Island, Virginia. I found a SAFARI TENT which was perfect for our crew!!! And so so sooooo much fun!!!!!! It felt like a vacation for all of us as we enjoyed glamping time, conversations, laughs, yummy seafood/s’mores/oyster shooters, and beach time!! It was PERFECT. And the tent was huge!!! It fit all six of us inside with two queen size beds, a full-size futon, a cute sitting area, and a dresser! They even had a fan inside for those hot days, but we had the best weather and didn’t really need it. πŸ™‚ It was the best weekend to celebrate Liz!

The prettiest bride-to-be!!!! <3 Man… We CRUSHED some delicious oyster shooters that night!!!! Haha!

I had to take a photo of my favorite coffee shop on the island β€” Main Street Coffee! You HAVE to try the coconut latte if you go there!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ We all had the best time this past weekend and I cannot wait to hang out with the crew again in less than two weeks!!!

CAN TODAY BE SUNDAY?

I missed my boys this past weekend β€”Β And coming home to this view just made my weekend … Ollie is ridiculous! HA! After a weekend away and skipping over my Sunday routine, I’m feeling a tad bit behind so today will be “play catch up day!” I don’t typically like to mix personal routine stuff with business work (laundry, cleaning, etc.), but I’m breaking some rules! πŸ˜‰ Anyone else playing catch up today???

May your Monday start a week of blessings to you and your family!
