Make Peace this Monday, and Start Loving the Process

"Love is an ever-growing process.."

Oh the dreaded Monday Memes came in larger quantities Sunday evening, as this is the first Monday of 2016. Believe it or not, Monday is my favorite day of the week. You may think otherwise, but today is the day that sets the tone for the rest of the week. It is a day to gather thoughts, plan, and prepare for what is ahead.

The first Monday of the year and you are engaged! I am sure a lot of you are thinking what is next? So many thoughts are flowing through your head. Where do you even begin? Set a date? No, pick a venue? This process can be overwhelming for a lot people. I want you to begin this time as you will end it. STOP stressing about the process, and start falling in love with it. Wedding planning does need to be stressful. This is a time for you and your fiancé to work together and have fun.

So, on this day, I ask that you reflect. Reflect on the love you have for one another. I ask that you love every part of this time. My advise: Don't Sweat the small stuff. Yes ladies, there will be times he does not seem to care, but he does. He just needs guidance. Start making peace on this Monday. Take a deep breath, and prepare for all the beautiful and wonderful things you are about to experience. We are here to help you, and to make sure you enjoy every step of the way.

On this first Monday of the year start fresh. Today you are working with a blank canvas. You are a team and together you will build something magical. This process is amazing and we are so happy to embark on this adventure with the two of you.

New Beginnings are for Dreamers

She created the life she wanted to live...

In August 2015, my best friend and I decided to do something that makes us happy. We decided to follow our hearts and our talents and open our own wedding planning + design business.  Here is a glimpse of some photos that share a bit of the new beginning of our journey. 


Everywhere I went, I felt like I was being inspired to take the leap to go into business with Katelyn. 


Dining in Charleston 


Attending a Tahoe wedding was the perfect preface to our business launch.

We started buying things that our brides could use for their weddings and rent from us at a more affordable cost. We hope to really grow our rental inventory in 2016! 

Follow us on SnapChat.. everyone else is =) 

I am a strong believer in happiness over societal success. I believe that passion is what defines success, not power or dollar signs. I am proud of myself and Katelyn for doing what makes us happy. We cannot wait to share our passion and talents with more couples in 2016!
