Makeup! 😍 As a makeup lover, I really needed someone who was unbelievably talented, but also understood my vision. That was definitely the lovely @erinshaffer_mua ! She made the entire wedding party look and feel beautiful. She achieved the “elevated natural” look I wanted everyone to have, & bonus, she didn’t even laugh at me when I whipped out a photo of Kim Kardashian when discussing my look inspiration 😂. I also really loved that she worked with & used the very reputable & classic @bobbibrown line. She was amazing & helped make the day so special.
Snow day Saturday! ☃️ I love when it snows. The world becomes so fresh & bright. Peep my stories for endless boomerangs of our beautiful snowfall today!
Wedding Day Hair! 💕 I was so thrilled to have worked with @theposhkc for mine, my bridesmaids, my mother & mother-in-law’s hair for the big day. They came to our location & were so helpful & professional! I felt like my stylist really listened to exactly what I wanted, & didn’t even flutter an eyelash when I told her on the wedding day that I had changed my mind from what we did at my trial! They were so laid back & made my ‘maids & the moms feel gorgeous! 💁🏻♀️ (Hair piece also was amazing! It is from @haircomesthebride 😘)
I was beyond thrilled with how our flowers & table decor turned out, thanks to @wildhillflowers ! 💐 🕯 💐 🕯 Jenni & her team were so receptive to our vision of simple & elegant, with a touch of romance. I was literally awestruck when I saw our bouquets (a combo of roses, Lillie’s, & other white accent flowers) & our table-scapes (simple greenery with LOTS of candles!) I would highly recommend working with them for any floral event need. They made the experience so easy & relaxed with a gorgeous outcome! 🥰
Cake cake cake 🍰 Debatably one of best parts of a wedding for the guests! Max & I knew we wanted our cake from @dolcebakery from the start. Working with them was amazing & definitely one of Max’s favorite parts of wedding planning. The tasting was fun, & they worked to give us exactly what we wanted for flavors and decor. We had regular buttercream, lemon, & chocolate with sea salt caramel flavors, & they were all delicious. We highly recommend them for their cakes & their amazing treats all year long!
My wedding dress 💕 The dress is one of the first things you pick out & I was in love with this one from @eddyk_bridal . It wasn’t what I originally expected wanting to wear, but the illusion top & back, off-the-shoulder sleeves, fitted style, & gorgeous train sold me. The dress felt “like me,” & I couldn’t imagine marrying my love in anything else! I purchased my dress & had the best experience choosing it from @gowngallery . 👰🏻
Happy New Year & Congratulations to all of the newly engaged ladies out there! 💍 It’s such an exciting time in your life & the planning process can be so much fun! As promised, over the next two weeks, I will sporadically be posting photos of the vendors we used, in case any of you want inspiration. 🍰 Feel free to ask me any questions, as all of the vendor searching is still fresh in my mind! Have fun you little brides!!!! 👰🏻
The end of 2018 is upon us... I can’t believe it! 🙃 For 2019, I have decided to start a Bullet Journal. I had the most fun planning mine out to track my days as well as my workouts, spending, goals, etc. What are you doing to prep for the New Year? 🥳 Also, if you have a bullet journal, leave your fun page & tracking ideas below! 👇🏻
