Hi all!! I would first like to start this section with a “disclaimer,” and express that I will never claim to know it all. I think I received my first email from someone asking me to mentor them while I was only a year into this. I was kind of shocked and told them I […]

I love details at weddings! I usually always post them to share the style of the wedding but I decided to do a separate post for this wedding because there were so many! I always get to a wedding early, so I see just how much work goes into the decor, flowers, food. The behind […]
