Oh, the places we’ll go || Did you know that one out of every 4 weddings is a destination wedding? Which comes out to over 350,000 weddings annually. Mind. Is. Blown. We have loved getting to be apart of some amazing destination weddings including coordinating pieces for Rusty & Emma to take with them to their wedding on the coast of Santorini. Can you say goals?! Next up, our wedding season kicks off in May with an intimate wedding outside of Tuscany, Italy! We can’t wait to see where our couples take us next!*While we love to travel, we offer our services for destination weddings without us traveling too. #willtravelforlove #destinationwedding #destinationweddingplanner photo: @robertafacchiniphotography // stationery: @theartintara

A whole new world || Its been 12 weeks. 12 weeks since I last signed off and welcomed some time away as I became a new mom. These past few months have been a mix somewhere between a haze and a dream. It sure isnt easy but im going to be cliche and say that being a mom really is the best thing ever. I feel so fortunate in the fact that I was able to soak in these newborn days and as I get back to work im able to still be home with my baby. It was always a dream of mine to be a mom someday that had the opportunity to stay home but yet I wanted to be able to reach the career goals I had for myself, so being able to fullfill both is just a dream come true. I’ll tell you what though, It’s a funny thing, “time off” as a business owner, I have also booked and hit my wedding goal for 2019, met and built relationships with some amazing new brides and have been working out the details for some amazing weddings. Oh, and did I mention I took on, planned and coordinated a wedding last weekend in a little over 4 weeks. So while I’ve been quiet and enjoyed the slow in certain aspects of my business I’ve also been growing, thriving and celebrating in other ways. I’ve so enjoyed this time “off” but now this momma is ready to get back. And better than ever!! Photo: @bettertogetherphotowi #backfromleave #momlife #workingmomma
Our sweet girl is here!! Aspen Rose was born August 21st at 3:55am. Yes, she is one week old already (brb while I go cry). She is a 7lb 4oz bundle of pure heaven on earth. Becoming a family of 3 this week has warmed my heart in more ways than I could of ever imagined. Being a mom is seriously the best thing ever!! A big thank you to my clients as you all have been so supportive while I take some time off to enjoy this time with my family. It means the world and more. #babygirl #momlifeisthebestlife #sweetheart
Our greatest adventure yet || Well we are officially one week out from baby girl’s due date! To say that this whole pregnancy journey has gone by fast would be an understatement . I never truly knew how much I would enjoy being pregnant and watching week by week as this tiny blessing grew in my belly. From feeling her kick and all the love & support that has surrounded us, its been such a surreal experience. This week ill be finishing up a few more things for work before going on maternity leave as we wait for her arrival. I feel so fortunate in knowing that this time off will allow me the opportunity to savor these first moments and figure out this new role. While I’ll be taking the rest of the year to enjoy this time with my family we have some pretty spectacular 2019 weddings and projects that we can’t wait to share with you once im back! But for now, we (patiently) wait!! photo: @bettertogetherphotowi #babywatch #39weeks #babygirl #maternityshoot
