My name is Susan, and Designs by Prater is what you could call my creative outlet that pulls together my photography, art and graphic design endeavors!
The most important thing you should know about me is that my life revolves around my God and my Savior Jesus Christ, my family (especially my husband Todd, son JD, and puppy Lexie), family and friends. Other than that, I am pretty much obsessed with photography, Coca-Cola, and the color green (and all shades of green for that matter, especially teal).
I love sports but cannot play them worth a lick. I would not trade my time as a college student at Mississippi State for anything in the world. The friendships and memories made there will stick with me forever...Hail State and Go Dogs! And I am very picky about my chocolate chip cookies, grilled cheeses, and shaved ice (gotta be SnoBiz watermelon flavor).
Don't you just love it when you meet someone new and it feels like you've known them forever?! That's exactly how I felt when I met with Carla and Joe who will be getting married on Memorial Day Weekend. They were so incredibly nice and easygoing, I know that their wedding will be a wonderful time for all. I mean, they even encouraged me to bring my 20-month old son to their wedding! They must have NO idea what they'd be in for if I did...ha! I can just see it now! Little JD walks right on up to the altar during the exchanging of rings and proceeds to drive his little shopping cart right through ceremony all the while shouting "Heyyyy" and blowing kisses to everyone. :) Yeahhhhh...so maybe I'll just let him come to the very end of the reception instead!
he takes his shopping cart with him everywhere...even to watch daddy umpire!
But back to Carla and Joe! What wonderful people they are, and I cannot wait to meet the rest of their family at their wedding at Simply Done just off the Historic Downtown Collierville Square. I also can't wait for their wedding because it will be my second wedding at that venue but my first wedding booked through the simply complete wedding collections the venue is now offering.
I am proud to be teaming up with Karen at Simply Done to offer my photography coverage to couples who want to have a smaller, more intimate ceremony in a historic old church building where your wedding and reception venue, food, beverages, cake and cupcakes, flowers, and photography are all included in one collection and one bill. It's all about weddings done simply!
