MBC Holiday Show and Expo Photo Booth

MBC Holiday Show and Expo Photo Booth

This past Saturday, our church hosted a crazy fun ladies' Christmas extravaganza, the first ever Holiday Show & Expo!

The tagline: If Etsy and Pinterest threw a holiday party, wouldn’t you want to join the fun?

Is that actually a question :) With so many wonderful local vendors & exhibitors, the afternoon was chock full of tutorial workshops, beautiful booths of homemade goods & all things Christmasy.

LMP had the privilege to host a sparkly Holiday Photo Booth for guests. This backdrop is soo sequiny, I would looove to use it like wallpaper in our home! We had a wonderful time meeting so many new friends, taking lots of prop-filled photos, laughing til our sides hurt & visiting with our Small Group & MBC Arlington girls who stopped by.

And mad props go out to Deano, who not only helped me set up but continued to rearrange the props, answer questions & man the booth as one of the few guys in the whole building. He's so great :)

Thanks to everyone who joined us on Saturday & let us be a sparkly part of your holiday afternoon! To view more image, download & order prints from the booth, visit the link below: http://lorinmariephotography.pass.us/holiday-show-and-expo-photobooth/

A bridal shower ... Surprise!!


Sitting in the dark, trying too hard not to giggle, we saw the apartment door open slowly. And then close. When it reopened the second time, a silhouette peeked inside & made her way into the unlit room.



In a typical we're-so-excited-and-we-just-can't-hide-it fashion, the Small Group girls gathered in Juli's living room last week had trouble deciding what to collectively yell as soon-to-be married Sabrina came through the door with Brie in tow (sneaky dinner plans to throw off any suspicion? check!) but settled on the ever classic S word.


And she was so surprised!! Apparently, this may have been one of the first times *ever* that Sabrina's actually been surprised so we'll take it :)

Not only is Sabrina in my Small Group through MBC Arlington, she's one of our spring LMP brides! (See her & David's sweet, romantic engagement photos are here!!)


We had so much fun showering (I KNOW, I know, terrible pun...) Sabrina with love, prayer, marriage advice & lots of hugs!


How great are the decorations?! Angela, you may have found your new calling in bridal banners, photo displays & cupcakes :) :)


We're so excited for March 29!! It's coming up soon :)
