Gilmer, Texas | Gender Reveal | 7.7.16

"We're gonna bring our families together and fill these huge balloons with colored powdered and then Boog is gonna shoot them and that's how we wanna find out if it's a boy or a girl!"

This was the plan that Maricela revealed to us ... probably 6 months before she and Boog even tied the knot last October!  So when we got a message from Maricela that it was time to begin preparing for that gender reveal date, we were thrilled for the Langston family - and we already knew the plan!  :)

Everyone had a very confident guess, along with a dozen reasons why it must be a boy, or it must be a girl.  :)  So before the big reveal, selections were made and balloons were blown up according to the guesses.  There were a lot of blues, and a lot of pinks.  (Though big brother, Zayne, was all about the blue!)

After shooing the cows away, everyone lined up in the shade around the edge of the pond where the balloons were floating.  (Boog had his great-grandfather's shotgun for the occasion.)

And.... what will it be?

A boy?

Or a girl?

Hooray!  It's a boy!

Boog's grin was a mile wide.  Talk about a proud daddy!  :)

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father..."

Congratulations, Boog & Maricela, and Zayne!  What a joy it was to celebrate with you!  We look forward to meeting your new little fella!

Pursuing Eden | Styled: Tuscan Lounge | 7.1.16

This lounge, styled with a Tuscan theme by Kristal Childs, is begging for some guests from YOUR event!  Be it wedding or family reunion, any get-together can benefit from some well thought out seating areas that encourage friends to sit and stay a while. 

We were tempted to make a break for it with these cross-back chairs!  So neat!
