My Wedding Planning

I may be a little biased, but the person you choose to entrust with one of the most important days of your life – some refer to as the wedding planner. This person should not only have access to a wide variety of vendors, but a passion for people and a love for all things gorgeous! So, I knew that whoever was holding my day would have to be someone very special – and I had just the person!

I am 100% for Wedding Planners – OBVIOUSLY. BUT I will be the first to admit that I was trying every angle to not have to hire one. I mean, I am a wedding planner right?? COME ON. How hard could it be to plan MY wedding. After much denial, I decided to grab coffee with my girl Lottie over at Grit + Gold Weddings. Lottie and I met up a while back over drinks and I immediately knew she was awesome. This woman has an amazing eye for design and is always up for a challenge. We sat Friday morning talking about life and eventually my wedding planning came up and I was kind of embarrassed to say that I -the wedding planner – didn’t have a wedding planner!

Y’all. I cannot even tell you the weight that was lifted after I booked Grit + Gold and realized that I wouldn’t have to worry about anything. I could sit upstairs and soak up those sweet moments with my girls. PRAISE THE LAWD. And we didn’t just choose to go with them because Lottie and I are friends, but because they are some of the BEST and we knew that we would have NOTHING to worry about with them on our team.

So remember, when you are debating on whether or not hiring a Wedding Planner is worth the search and money, we are on your side! We want the absolutely very best for you and your groom!

Happy Thursday!

I think one of the hardest parts of planning a wedding is trying to keep the same theme going through out everything you do. So, when it cam time to pick our save the dates, I knew exactly where to look! If you are a bride on a budget, then Etsy is the place for you! It’s the perfect place to blend your style with affordable prices.

These are the 3 we were looking at:

Shop: Hazel Bloom Boutique

Shop: Kibb K Studio

Shop: Fotovella

I loved all of the above ones, but I honestly fell in love with the one we chose instantly! When purchasing from Mallory, we picked her not just based on design, but based on the fact that she would print and mail them to us. For us that saved us a step of having to get them printed and the price difference between DIY printing and having her printing was so small that it was worth it to just have her do it. 

So here we go!!!

We can’t wait to send these out to our friends and family and get this party started!!

This day was a long time coming. We had been waiting out rain for a couple of weeks and when the day finally came, we were still unsure of the rain, but we went for it! It was so great! The sun poked through right as we got there and it is one of my favorite memories so far!

Thank you Elisabeth!! You made it so fun!

Ok, y’all, let’s be real. Every girl wants that rocking honeymoon bod and dreads doing to work to get it, when most guys can do two crunches and – POW – and 8 pack….Not even fair. So, not wanting to kill myself, but also wanting to make a life change and, hopefully, learn something along the way, I’ve chosen to go with Tone It Up. Tone It Up was started by two ladies who really just enjoy health eating and working out and are HILARIOUS!

I joined about a year ago, just for the workouts that they post online. I didn’t really get into it until around January when I did their 8 Weeks New Years Series. Let’s just say I made it 4 out of the 8 and just got lazy. SO, my goal is to make it through all 8 weeks of the Bikini Series that starts TOMORROW.

So, follow me through this journey and I will to tell you the pros and cons and my true opinions of this process. I can’t wait to see how not only does my body change, but so do my cravings and how I view foods!

 Let’s do this!

In our early conversations about marriage, I was already hoping for the venue of my dreams. When White Sparrow Barn opened this past year, I fell in love. You also know it was meant to be when your friends kept referring to it as “Britni’s venue”! I told Stephen, early on, that I wanted WSB, but when I check in to their availability in October for another bride, I found out they were almost booked for 2016. After much stressing and failed attempts to find anything like it, I came to grips with the fact that it may never happen and I was ok with that.

It was time to take my own advice and remember that the venue wouldn’t change whether or not Stephen and I would get married. So, I let it go. Best decision ever.

Little did I know that he and some of my closest friends were scheming. The day I was working at a workshop in January, he was visiting the venue to book it for us!! Just out of curiosity, that week, he emailed Nadia and asked if anything in the Fall was open. She said that November 5 had just opened up!! GOD IS SO GOOD. Y’all!

Many of you asked what was on the piece of paper he gave me at our engagement party was. It was his gift to me – White Sparrow!!

We could not be more excited than to share our special day there & it cannot come fast enough!!

All of the venue and engagement photos were taken by my bestie Elisabeth Carol & the wedding was one that she did at the beginning of the year & just got featured on Wedding Chicks!

 

A year ago, I would’ve never guessed that I would be engaged to the most wonderful man. God has truly been working on me and preparing me for the future that He has planned for us. Stephen and I met in our church Home Group and it was all up hill from there. Looking back now, I would’t have done it any other way. While the Lord was working on me, He was also working on Stephen and we have been able to see Him use us and we cannot wait to see what He has in store for our future!!

A huge thank you to our amazing friends Elisabeth Carol Photography and Jordan Laessig for capturing this moment for us!
