Friday Favorites: #adoptdontshop

I’m doing this Friday Favorite post a little different and instead of sharing my favorite THINGS I am sharing one of my favorite causes that I am extremely passionate about.

We adopted Maddie and I am a big proponent of saving the lives of sweet little fur babies who need a home.…

Choosing your Wedding Photographer

Besides the dress, the photographer is the thing I knew I would be most particular about when it came to wedding planning. I love photography myself and take alottttt more pictures than the average person for my blog. I am particular about backgrounds, lighting, positioning, editing, etc. Therefore, when it came to choosing a photographer, I knew the vibe I wanted. We narrowed it down about three who had gorgeous photos and styles. We ultimately…

Registering: In Store vs Online

I’m a self-proclaimed online shopping junkie. My fiancé is also a pretty big fan and he will buy just about anything off Amazon to save a trip to the store or mall. If we’re going to actually go to a store to shop, we’ve gotta be in the mood. For the few times a year he does some shopping, this isn’t as big of a deal. For someone who shops as much as me, it can…

Announcing your Engagement + Starting the Planning Process

Getting engaged is so exciting, it’s tempting to want to just post a photo straight to social media to tell the masses. It sort of makes me think of Anchorman when Will Ferrell’s character is saying “I just want to shout it from on top of a mountain.” It’s hard not to want to immediately post it online, but try. There are a few things you should do first. In this week’s Wedding Wednesday post,…
