• {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…

    5 Traditions We Have Started Together

    photo: Chesapeake Charm Photography It was a goal of ours to start traditions since we got married last year. We wanted to have little things that we could continue throughout our lives that we could eventually have with our family. Starting traditions is no easy task, especially when you are combining traditions already in place amongst your individual families. We wanted to continue some traditions that we had throughout our lives, but also start new ones that are our own. We had a busy year with some health bumps along the way, but I am really excited about some traditions we have started in the last year. A few of…

    5 Things I Needed To Realize For My Wedding | Wedding Wednesday

    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! That was my inspiration word- a simple three letter word explaining my entire wedding. We wanted it to be FUN. We wanted our ceremony to make us laugh, we wanted our introduction to get the party started, and we wanted to see empty chairs while the dancing was happening. All of this means having FUN. In order for this fun to happen, there were a few things I needed to get over. I needed to move…

    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…

  • 45 Post-Wedding Blog Post Ideas

    When it comes to blogging about your wedding, if you are anything like me, you want to remember all of the details for the future. Those days when you want to feel nostalgic and look back on one of the best days, it’s nice to have the memories laid out somewhere. Blogging is very similar to scrapbooking in this way, it’s a way to see the past in a visual sense, but to also like a journal to read about the memories and feelings you had. I have loved sharing about my wedding, from the little details up until the last few minutes of June 20th, 2015. I wanted to…
