// In a new favorite spot, with my favorite person, and so deeply thankful. 💚
Happy Friday friends! I hope you are able to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather that's on the horizon for this weekend! Have any fun plans??

You are significant with or without a significant-other.
YOU are SIGNIFICANT,
WITH or WITHOUT a significant-other. // I wish I could do text bold, italics, and underlines, because I just believe this is so important for you to hear today. You guys know that I LOVE, love, and that I believe so deeply in marriage and want to celebrate that every day.
> But I also just want you to hear today that no matter what season you are in, no matter what messages you are bombarded with today, know that your worth is not measured in your relationship status. Know that you are enough no matter who or what you have. Know that you are beautiful, you are known, you are precious and powerful. Your life does not begin when you are married or in a relationship, and you are not incomplete without. You are the only you that this world has, and we need more of what only you can offer. So please don't wait. ❤

That sweet golden light 😍🙌🏻. With their wedding just around the corner, I wanted to share some photos of Aly & David's engagement session this fall. 💚🌿 // *Link in profile // #BekahKayCreative #bkccouples

Don't you just love hugs??

"His love is meteoric, his loyalty astronomic,
His purpose titanic, his verdicts oceanic.
Yet in his largeness nothing gets lost;
Not a man, not a mouse, slips through the cracks…
You’re a fountain of cascading light, and you open our eyes to light "
// I spent the weekend in a room surrounded by around 500 women tuned into a simulcast from the @ifgathering hearing some beautiful teachings and stories about women that are changing the world by choosing to do small things with big ripple effects. While that was so great, naturally my introvert heart needed a night to disconnect and enjoy some mac and cheese in bed 🥖🧀🙌🏻. This morning, I woke up thinking about how noisy our world can be and how bombarded we are with thing after thing as we're scrolling through our feeds. And doesn't it just feel exhausting sometimes, even before you get out of bed? So whether you spent the night cheering on your team, watching commercials and Gaga killin' it, or maybe the puppy 🐶 bowl is more your thing, or you just had a night to yourself too- I hope that your week starts out with some rare quiet, even if for only a moment. I hope you can take a minute and breathe and think about how big the world is compared to how small your to-do list is (no matter the daunting tasks), and you are comforted knowing that you are doing great, that there is newness in each morning, each week, and that no one has it all together. We're all just adventuring in this big beautiful world together trying to figure it out and by doing small things each day, we believe big things can happen. <3

Admittedly, I've been the WORST at keeping up with my blog and sharing images from all the amazing weddings I get to photograph, but I'm finally starting to go back and share some of my favorites from this past wedding season while I'm gearing up for the next! :)
// Today I'm sharing Carleen & Chris' gorgeous eastern shore wedding at Brittland Estates. Trust me, you don't want want to miss all the stunning oyster themed details that the bride and Elizabeth from @eastmadeeventco put together! Also, so pumped that this wedding was recently featured in the @premierbridemddc magazine! See the full post on bekahkay.com or use the link in my profile ^^ 💚

The one where we did something crazy (!!) // When we were signing papers, @bradlindner looked at me and then pointed to the date we just signed on the page that said 1/25 and I smiled thinking it was just one more thing that made this feel, right. Coincidentally our first date was on the 25th, we married on the 25th, and now this past week on the 25th, we bought some land where we'll build our first home (say what?!) <3
.
It's been a whirlwind, but on Wednesday we walked onto this land and were able to officially call it ours. It's full of tall trees, water, and pine needles, and it's close to both of our families. A year ago, I never thought we'd be here, but the Lord has been so faithful through every twist and turn and we're so excited to be on this next adventure. We're already dreaming big dreams about the home that could be built, the community that could gather, and the people that could find a place of rest here. We're so thankful and excited to learn to be good stewards of our little retreat and can't wait to share it with you. .
Now, who has the best hammock recommendations?! :) #cantbelieveit #adulting #lindnerlove #twinbrooksretreat

"It's Tuesday, and you're beautiful.
It will be exactly the same tomorrow,
only Wednesday."
.// Just in case you needed a reminder tonight. And also, I don't think I'll ever get tired of flower crowns or greenery. 💚

"When we first began to spend time with each other, we each realized that the other was a rare fit for our hearts."
— Tim Keller, Meaning Of Marriage
.// It's a beautiful thing to find your person. Someone that feels so uniquely designed to do life with you in a way that just, fits. It's one of my favorite things about being able to witness the beginning of marriages- to see and hear the stories of two different people that found and fought for each other against all odds, because they knew it was rare and beautiful and worth it. <3

Keep letting the light in. ✨

Those quiet, intimate moments on your wedding day. ❤
