Ever wonder how you get those dreamy golden hour photos on your wedding day? I’ll let you in on a little secret... You plan for it! Add time into your wedding day timeline to sneak away from your reception to get those romantic sunset photos. 💖 Your wedding is so much more than just a party. It is the beginning of something new! Two hearts, two lives, two families, all becoming one! It’s the first day of your marriage, your legacy. By the time your reception rolls around, you’ve already married your Prince Charming and it’s time to share your first meal as husband and wife, surrounded by the people that mean the most in the world to you! But after things settle down, it’s nice to have a moment or two alone. 💖 Sometimes it's easy to get lost in all the pretty little details. And as much as we love them and they help bring so much personality to your wedding, at the end of the day the most important thing is that you are marrying your best friend! Everything else is just the icing on the wedding cake 😉It's not that often in life that all the people who are important to you gather around to celebrate you! So be sure to make it a day you will all remember, but don't stress yourself out too much. If you are someone who would rather not even have to worry about the details, my biggest tip for you is to hire a wedding planner who will take care of all of that for you! One of my goals on your wedding day is to bring peace and eliminate stress but a wedding planner will bring your vision to life and keep everything organized! You, and your photographer, will be so happy you made that investment for your best day ever! If you need a recommendation, I know some pretty amazing people! 💖 I still have select dates open for weddings in the winter of 2019 and have already started booking out 2020! Request info at the link in my bio! I would love to chat about your love story and all the fun wedding details! 💖
We made it through another Monday friends! Who’s ready to crush this week and live the life of your dream?? 🙋🏻♀️ I know I am! After a low key weekend with my husband not feeling too well and watching too many episodes of New Girl, I’m excited for taking care of stuff this week, hanging out with friends, and heading to LA this weekend for a very special wedding!! 💖 But tell me, what’s something you’re excited about this week??
“Steal a little kiss!” I always try to get my couples to relax and have fun during their engagement sessions! Even if that means being a little silly but I’d rather that than leaving them wondering what to do and I always let them know how great they are doing because a little encouragement goes a long way! I know what it’s like being on the other side of the camera and it can be intimidating!! But when you feel comfortable and are having fun, it makes the whole experience different! And when you’re confident and relaxed, it creates photos with real emotion and a true reflection of who you are as a couple! That’s always my goal when I go into a session!! 💖 Happy Friday loves! I hope you’re week was awesome! What’s everyone up to this weekend??
Happy Birthday to the boy who lived and to the woman who gave him to us⚡️🍰 I love how JK Rowling has brought together so many people through her creation of Harry Potter! His story moves so many of us, even after all this time! ✨always✨ Today I celebrated by treating myself to a Butterbeer frap! One of these days, I want to have a HP party with a movie marathon and all kinds of treats and a Hagrid came 😂😅🙈 Which one of the movies is your fav??
While white gowns and flowy veils are the traditional wedding outfit, be sure to put your own style and personality into your bridal look! Incorporating your favorite color or type of shoe or a little nod to something that makes you happy will really help make you feel comfortable and confident on your wedding day when all eyes are on you. My something new was my silver heels that I now wear for every anniversary date. My something old was a broach from an antique sale. My something borrowed was a Mickey Mouse tennis bracelet from my best friend. And my something blue was a silk ribbon in my favorite color that also showed up in the rest of our wedding decor. Almost 11 years later, while there are many things I would do differently now, these are all things that I still love and am wanting to incorporate into our anniversary session. And that's one of the special parts of your wedding day details. They really do help to tell the story of your wedding day and create a lasting legacy for years to come! 💖 I absolutely love the Best Day Ever bracelet by @lillianandco as a bridal detail and I would for sure have worn it on my wedding day! It's such a fun way to incorporate my love for Disney and is a great reminder of the first day of your marriage and to make each and every day after the best one ever! 💖 Be sure to check out the link in my profile to get some Disney inspired jewelry from @lillianandco and use SSPDREAMERS for a discount at check out #ad
This past weekend was filled with beautiful views, great company, and lots of laughs! All the things that fill my quality time love language. And more than that, being out of the normal day to day of life provides so much inspiration and a fresh outpouring of creativity! We went wine tasting at @wisevillawinery and had the opportunity to hear the owner share about his process of making wine and learning about all of it was pretty incredible! You can tell how much passion and heart goes in to all they do there and we had such a great time! Their innovation and pursuit of excellence was so inspiring! So here to fresh inspiration and a willingness to learn something new! 🥂 What’s inspiring you lately?
