• {Wedding Wednesday} Goodbye For Now

    Well, this is it. My very last Wedding Wednesday (for now) and the last time I will be cohosting the link-up. I have loved this day since before I was even engaged, and was overjoyed when it was finally time to start sharing my own wedding details. I have loved recapping not only our wedding day, but also those of friends and sharing advice in-between. I’m thankful for all of the friends I have made through this link-up, like Emelia and Alex to name just a few, and I loved getting to know Meg and Nikki so well by co-hosting with them. I will be back randomly, but now I…

    Happy Wedding Wednesday! I’m not going to lie, I think about my wedding often. Other people also remind me of my wedding often, and you know what they say? It was so much FUN!

    Trello For Wedding Planning

    Staying organized during the wedding planner process isn’t always easy, in-fact, it’s almost never easy. Things sometimes get lost in the shuffle, and that is okay, but being able to stay on top of things will cause less stress and really help to get things done in a timely manner. When I was planning my own wedding, I kept things organized in a few different ways. I had a Pinterest board to get ideas going, another one that had completed project ideas, a binder full of notes and contracts and the lifesaver above all was my Wedding Planning Trello Board. If you need an introduction to Trello, check out this…

    Wedding Wednesday: What Dave Has To Say

    After reading Emelia’s posts from when she has Chuck answer wedding and life related questions, I thought it would be fun to let Dave take over for a day and get his perspective on things. While some of these things we obviously have talked about before, hearing things that he wants to share with the blog world may be a little more interesting. It’s always fun to get things from the Grooms side of everything, from planning to the wedding itself. I love having things like this to look back on as our wedding gets farther and father into the past. When did you know that you wanted to marry…

  • Why We Decided To Have A First Look

    I have been thinking about this post since before our wedding. Not because it’s going to be this huge insightful advice post, but because it really meant a lot to me. As I’ve mentioned before, I have always known that we were going to do a first look. It just made sense. But it was a conversation we still had, especially with my grandmother who said this was straying too far from tradition. These reasons may not be for everyone, and there’s nothing wrong with waiting until your walk down the aisle, but this is what meant the most to us. In the end, I am so happy we chose…
