Budgeting for your Wedding

Budgeting for your Wedding

Take heed all ye who are about to dive into wedding planning - you need to start by doing one of two things: 1) Hire a wedding planner who will walk you through budget planning or 2) At the very least, do some budget planning yourself FIRST - before you make any moves to book anyone or anything!

These photo sessions - they're never under perfect circumstances.  The big boys needed haircuts, my face was still swollen from the IV fluids I'd been given during my blood patch and I was just finding the ability to sit up-right after the spinal fluid leak.  My body was in the awkward postpartum phase (who am I kidding - still is) and we look as sleep deprived as we felt but, BUT we will absolutely cherish these pictures for the rest of our lives.

Nikki and Tim's wedding has an extra special place in my heart because Nikki and I co-led a high school girls small group together and it's just so fun to serve someone who you know and love even before the wedding planning begins!

Enjoy a little peek into the sweet and intimate baby "sprinkle" that my mom and sisters threw for me last weekend.  Little man and I definitely felt celebrated.  Love you to the moon and back little man!  We can't wait to meet you!

Maternity Portraits & Thoughts On This Pregnancy

Maternity Portraits & Thoughts On This Pregnancy

Baby #3.  It's so hard to believe that we're quickly approaching the end of this pregnancy!  I feel like I barely had time or brain space to be aware of this pregnancy until recently when the baby started wiggling and kicking and hiccuping so much that's it would have been impossible for him to continue to go unnoticed!  But between weddings and Lolly's and "youth pastor wife-ing" and two other kids to attend to I really have already had moments of mom-guilt for this third child who's already flying under the radar...

Check out this "tropical glam" beauty of a wedding!  Silver pineapples, palm leaves, tropical flowers and a gorgeous ocean view!  We've got lots of tips for how to stretch your wedding budget in this post!  I love getting into my client's heads so I can help them streamline their vision, pin-down their priorities and work their budget to give them the wedding of their dreams!

Barbara and Brian got married last fall at the Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Their wedding colors were burgundy and gold and navy blue.  So much fall-y goodness!  Some of my favorite elements from their wedding were the beautiful, real, fall-leaf arbor that they used for their ceremony, their EPIC groomsmen pictures, and the Big Band style orchestra that entertained the guests all night!...

What do you get when you get married in Virginia Beach in the fall?  THIS WEDDING!  I bet you didn't realize that beach and fall could be mixed together as cohesive and tastefully curated wedding decor but you're about to see it executed perfectly.

Creative at Heart Recap

Creative at Heart Recap

I attended the Creative at Heart Conference early in August (the 8th through the 9th).  I know it's been a few weeks since then, but I figured since I could still see and feel the remnants of the bruise I obtained when I walked into the corner of my bed at our Raleigh Airbnb (so typical for this clumsy gal)...

In a perfect world I would have written this post in conjunction with my website launch two weeks ago, but the world's not perfect and I'm not perfect and between weddings and a vacation and then more weddings it just didn't happen!
