Welcome TO THE

When I think about Alexandra and Tom’s relationship, the first thing that comes to my mind is simple. They go together like peanut butter and jelly. Now, maybe it’s my pregnancy appetite talking, but these two really are just like the classic PB&J. Before I ever met Tom, I met Alexandra for coffee, and we […]

Wedgewood Wedding

It happened. He popped the question. You had the moment you’ve been dreaming about for so long. You’re giddy. Hello, Cloud 9!! And if you’re anything like I was, you can’t stop saying, “tehehehe!” and giggling like a little schoolgirl. My now-husband, Nate proposing in 2010. 2 things are obvious – I was totally surprised, […]

First things to do after getting engaged

I’m a sucker for a good story. Always have been. Especially a good love story. And the best love stories are the ones that lead to a lifetime of love together. Those stories always have a sense of nostalgia and timelessness. My grandparents tell me the story of how they would go to the movies […]

True backyard weddings are rare. You know, the weddings that are actually in a backyard. Not just a “backyard feel,” but actually in the yard that was yours growing up. Stephanie and Matt not only had a true backyard wedding, but they had a fantastic backyard wedding. All in the comfort of Steph’s childhood home. Plus, what other venue lets […]
