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!

 

 

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!

“Like when I close my eyes and don’t even care if anyone sees me dancing
Like I can fly, and don’t even think of touching the ground
Like a heartbeat skip, like an open page
Like a one way trip on an aeroplane
It’s the way that I feel when I’m with you, brand new”

“We’ve stoked the fire till it’s roaring, it’s freezing outside and it’s snowing
Keep me warm till the morning, this winter’s day
No time for sleep when I’m dreaming, I’m hearing bells through the ceiling
Been waiting all day for this feeling,
It’s Christmas, Christmas, Christmas Day”

This was our first Christmas together & of course, we had to start our own traditions. The Holiday’s were especially hard for the both of us this year & we wanted to be reminded of why we love Christmas. So, naturally we grabbed one of our favorite photogs, Jordan Laessig and got to it!

Insecurity is something you never would have thought I struggled with. I am an optimistic, joyful and fun person – on the outside. For the majority of my life I used this as a way to cover up my hurt, but nothing hurt more than my heart. Most people don’t know that a lot of my grade school days were spent being bullied – for my glasses, my braces and worst of all, my skin. I was born with eczema and have delt with it my whole life. I’ll never forget sitting across from some kids in the 4th grade and them calling me an old lady because my hands weren’t the same as theirs.

It’s funny because my friends always told me that they loved being my friend because I never changed and always knew who I was. I wish that were true. BUT I didn’t realize the vastness of my insecurities until after college and finally realizing who I was. God has brought me through a trying season over the past couple of years and it has completely changed my life.

I am so secure in the fact that Christ is my Father. His plans have completely blown me away. I used to say “Ohh, I’ll be 40 before I get married”, and it wasn’t until a friend confronted me saying that I was not holding myself to a high enough standard that I started valuing Christ’s creation to a higher standard. I am 25, own my own business AND have a full time job passionately helping lead others to the throne of Christ. I have a relationship with my brothers that I could have never imagined and a mother that constantly seeks after Christ. He has given me a person that loves me despite my flaws, declines nights out to stay with me after surgery and loved Jesus more than me. AMEN. To say I am blessed is an understatement. There are no words to describe my thankfulness.

If you know me, you know my obsession with the show Fixer Upper. I had watched Joanna’s testimony a while back, but today, it hit home. It’s a beautiful thing to see Christ’s love flowing through His people. It’s also great hearing about others with the same hesitations and seeing what Christ is doing in them.      I love supporting a business that isn’t fearful of showing Christ to others.

If there’s anything I could ever dream of happening at one of my weddings…this would be it.

Dear Adam…if you ever come to Texas & need a wedding to crash, you know who to call.
