This isn't the exterior of our Lake House, but its what It will look like! We've already talked to contractor about the wood shakes and Ive found the Blue paint, its called WYETH BLUE by Benjamin Moore, we drove to HUMBLE, TX to find it! and the white railings are my job with a sprayer in the spring! We already have beautiful rock on the house. But this will be the final color scheme by April!
We have been working hard on our Lake house! I cant wait to show pictures of all the things we've done. I'm so proud of my husband Bruce, his job allows him about 16 days off each month and he has spent some of them on the boat, enjoying the lake, and some of them working on the house. He's really a perfectionist and has done a great job. Me? I have been painting a lot! Lots of white paint right now.
(The photo is similar to our great room. Its much larger than this and has water views!)
Today he put up CROWN MOULDING over the dinning room entry!! WOO HOO! We kept it simple, because after all it is a kick your shoes off enjoy the view kind of house, but I love just a little formally mixed with my casualness. (is that a word CASUAL-NESS?) Pics to come soon. I admit I needed to take MORE BEFORE pics. But when sawdust if flying and nail guns popping, you tend to forget about pulling out a camera.
You can go to my PINTREST PAGE, and find me Dixie Dobbins and find my LAKE HOUSE board and LAKE HOUSE PROJECT board to see what my big plans and taste for this casa are! http://www.Pintrest.com
These are also similar to our Great room. Cant wait to post pics for you to see!
and heres an idea I just love! hanging a rowboat from the ceiling! Been looking around town for rowboats and I found two! Husband thinks I am crazy but he said he would do it for me or hire someone to do it if I find a boat I like! WOO HOO!
Recently I was honored to photograph Patti and Jeremy's wedding! It was held in Wichita Falls at the Coyote Resort! Ill be posting more pictures soon, sorry for the delay, there are literally hundreds of beautiful images and taking a while to edit and process them all! All I can say is what a precious couple. Patti is one of those young ladies that has both brains and beauty and a Huge heart for people! She is also a Dr. now! and so is he Handsome Groom Jeremy! I know God will bless this marriage, they are two special people who have such a love of one another, their families and for the LORD. I admit I cried several times during their perfect wedding day. More to come soon! Thanks for your patience.
I'm so super excited about this couples upcoming wedding! We first met Tommy when he played football with our son at Burkburnett! Tommy's dad was also the head coach and we really enjoyed getting to know his parents!
Although Tommy is one year older than Scott, we always thought they had striking similar features. Both Blond and blue eyed, with similar smiles and teeth and a love of sports and both loved playing the game and they played hard.
So of course I was thrilled when Tommy called telling me of his Engagement and asking if I was available for his wedding!
He told me all about his beautiful Fiance Megan and we quickly made plans for me to drive up to Oklahoma City to do their Engagement portraits.
What a precious Couple. Tommy is the spontaneous and Funny one, Megan is loving, sweet and super organized one. They definetly compliment one another. (Similar to the reverse of me and my husband!)
We had planed to take pictures at the Dock on the beautiful Sailboat that Tommy had proposed on, and boy were we tickled when the owners told us they were actually taking us out on the water!
We got beautiful photographs and the Hurley's were so kind to accommodate me, and offer suggestions for angles and left no detail undone. Dave and Robins are perfectionists and romantics! It was a super wonderful time! If you want to celebrate a special occasion, here is their website! There is nothing like sailing on a beautiful boat like that. SAIL LAKE HEFNER
It was a great day!
What a beautiful couple. I'm so excited about their upcoming May 2014 wedding Im sure this couple will have a smooth sailing marriage. (Pun intended!)
