Today is Jay and my one year wedding anniversary! I thought that it would be a good time to reflect on our first year of marriage and share a few thoughts with you guys as well so here it goes...
We are leaving tomorrow for our One Year Anniversary trip!! Yes, our anniversary isn't until July 15th but we have our good friends' wedding that weekend (SO EXCITED), so we are going a little bit early! We decided that we need to prioritize taking one big trip, just the two of us, a year and definitely want to check some travel bucket list
Our one year wedding anniversary is a month from today and we finally got our wedding video so I thought that it would be the perfect time to share it! This will be the first of my wedding day posts. I haven’t been able to do them until now because I haven’t had my digital images from the wedding day. Apparently, in my contract with the photographer, it stated that I would only have access to the digital images once my album
Wedding season has officially kicked off. I'm going to my first wedding of the season this upcoming weekend! I rounded up all of my favorite dresses here in case you also have summer weddings or events. All of these dresses are
I went to my friend's bridal shower on Saturday and it got me thinking about great dresses for bridal showers. I'm thinking that the weather will get warmer some time soon (it has to, right?!) so I pulled together some perfect dresses
I know that Jay and I have only been together for 7.5 years and married for only half a year but its fair to say that we've faced our fair share of hardship throughout the course of our relationship. So many people have said things to me about how my accident
I knew that I wanted our wedding to feel very customized and personal. I wanted our guests to look at whatever we put out and think that it screamed us. I thought that it would be a good idea to create a custom wedding website as a part of that mission.
I created this video of our honeymoon and it is now one of my most precious "possessions." It serves as this instant time machine to the greatest moments of my life. I included the link for the video below and I hope that you guys like it!
On my husband's 28th birthday, I to share an 'excerpt' from our wedding ceremony in which our officiant (my beautiful sister in law) read a paraphrased version of what Jay and I each shared with her about the things that we love
I found The White Box on Instagram and was intrigued by their business. I ended up getting the opportunity to speak with the founders of the company on multiple occasions. I loved learning about their business model and dreams.
I have the mental reel of us pulling up to the hotel engrained in my mind for forever. The iconic huts jut out into the water, the insane mountain was showing off, and the water was the most crystal clear and blue water I have ever seen BY FAR. I
We took the ferry and were in AWE pulling up to Moorea. It looked like the island that Lost or Jurassic World took place on. Luckily the only similarity to our reality on this island and those faux realities was the landscape.
I had this vision for an intimate 'secret garden' feel for our rehearsal dinner and it was so fun to have it come to life! We only invited the people that were in our wedding and it enabled us to get some more quality moments with those people. The decor all turned out exactly
I linked everything that we are both taking on the trip...whether it's our outfits, the items in my carryon, the contents of my beach bag, or my cosmetics....it's alllll here. If you've been to The French Polynesia and have any tips/tricks for us, please leave them in the
If you want to make the food yourself as a labor of love, here are some ideas for "light bites." Your bridesmaids will go crazy over these cute but simple finger foods. Pair them with some sangria and everyone goes
I looked out in that room and I saw faces of these girls that I know did pain in the butt things to be there and I just kept thinking "wow, they really love me." Well guess what...I love them back tenfold! These girls are my tribe. I will never be able to give a sufficient
The shower left me feeling adored by these women. I could see right in front of my eyes that they know me, they love me, and they want me to be happy. Jay's mom and her bestie arranged stunning flower arrangements that
I can't believe that I just came back from my bachelorette party. In so many ways I feel like I am not old enough for that to be the case. It felt so casual and normal while I was living it but now that I am reflecting back on it, it
We're not just planning a wedding, we are also planning for a marriage. We will write vows that we share during our wedding ceremony where we make promises to each other. But, what about all of the regular ol' day-to-day stuff?!
All that you have to do to turn this template into your own personalized resource is follow the instructions on the first page. I created categories and subcategories that I found
I know that the honeymoon costs are high enough already without buying a super expensive honeymoon wardrobe so I included lots of affordable pieces in this list. You've got enough wedding planning tasks on your plate
Partnership is about stepping IN and UP when your partner needs to step OUT and DOWN. True partnership is the bees mother f-ing knees. It's the best flavor of validation and as close as you can come to feel like a magic
It's the morning of your wedding. You might have the jitters or you might be as calm as ever. Either way, wouldn't you be thrilled to get a note from your groom/bride before you see him/her?
I have had the most luck creating that ‘Wow’ photo by incorporating some props into the picture. You can produce interesting and feminine shots by using props such as flowers,
Let's combine two of my favorite things--wedding planning and organization! An organized bride is a relaxed bride and a relaxed bride leads to a fun wedding!
I feel like the tradition of premarital counseling is important because it prepares us for the entire reason that the wedding is happening in the first place…our marriage. You don’t have to miss out on premarital counseling just because
