Joys of being an AUNT!

I can't even begin to describe how amazing it is to be an aunt!  I knew I would love my nephew, but I had NO IDEA that he would steal my heart the way Gray has!  He is the BEST kid ever! Watching him grow up is such a gift... he has the sweetest personality already and his smile is so precious! He is 6 months now and I have to share some sweet shots I got of him the other day! 

Is there anything more precious? 
Those eyes melt my heart!

His smile is PERFECT!

The Norrids

 Happy 2013! I am officially Katie Betts Norrid! I wanted to share some of the images from our wedding! I have posted some "Details" and some "Getting Ready" shots! We were married October 12th 2012 in Rosemary Beach, Florida and it was everything I had hoped for and MORE!!!!! It was the most fun day of my life! We danced and danced and danced and danced..... The food was outstanding, the band was perfect, the location was dreamy and we were surrounded by the people that mean the world to us! I hope you enjoy! 

I designed our invitations and had them printed at a local print shop in Germantown. We ordered all the paper products from Paper-Source and the labels from Planet Label. My wonderful sisters and parents helped stuff and label and stamp each of them! I love how they turned out!

Here is another look at the invites!

The hair piece was an antique from my great aunt. 

I was IN-LOVE with my wedding day shoes! They were so comfortable and perfect for me! I highly recommend Badgley Mischka for all you brides out there!

My statement necklace was one of my first purchases. I found this beauty on and it was worth every penny! I just LOVE it!

We found my dress at Lowe's Bridal.  We had a great experience and I found the dress for me! I never though I was a sash/belt girl, but I think it made the dress! My wonderful mother made the belt for me, she is amazing!

All the flowers were made by my mother, and I helped a little the night before the wedding! We stayed up late and we were surrounded with flowers, succulents and more. Did I mention that my mother is AMAZING! My "Something Blue" was a dog tag with the names of our basset hounds and our wedding date on it! We love our sweet pups and missed them on our Big Day!

It was an absolutely PERFECT day! This is me right before I got to see my groom for the first time!

My sisters getting me all ready for the big day!

My bridesmaids are the Best and Prettiest you can find! I wanted them to choose a dress that they felt comfortable in so they picked out the one they wanted from JCrew

I would be LOST without these two! 

My mommy helping me with the final details!

I LOVED my necklace!

My best friends! I am one lucky girl!

AHHHH... I can't wait to see Kyle!

This is one of my ALL-TIME favorite images from our amazing photographer Dear Wesleyann.  If you are getting married in the Florida Panhandle you need to contact Wesleyann! 

One of the BEST moments of my life!

We are about to get married!

Reading our notes to each other! Kyle wrote his on the receipt for the house rental... wouldn't have it any other way :)

This one is hanging in our home!

Thank you for stopping by and I can't wait to share more from our Dream Wedding!
 I hope you enjoyed!
