Real Weddings

I will never forget the first meeting I had at Tandem Bagels in Mankato with Emily and her mother! After chatting for quite a while about what services we offered and all things wedding, we moved on to other random topics and I mentioned something about not being from the Mankato area, and the bride […]

It’s so hard to believe I have been Mrs. Jensen for 9 years. It truly seems as if time has flown by, but then at the same time, I feel like it hasn’t. I’m sure some of you know about my wedding day, and some of the circumstances surrounding it. Basically, I was incredibly ill. […]

I love Facebook. For a lot of reasons, I love being able to keep up with friends and family all over the world through FB. Most humans have Facebook accounts, which means most brides have FB accounts. Somewhere along the line recently someone added me to one of those “wedding planning” FB groups (you know […]

Real Weddings

A lot of times, life isn’t at all like the fairytales we used to read as children. Bluebirds and mice don’t show up to do the dishes and the laundry, and I don’t know about you, but my fairy godmother certainly hasn’t graced me with her presence quite yet. However sometimes, after kissing a lot […]

I look forward more to my business birthday than my actual birthday. I love that May 2nd serves as a marker for another year of putting one foot in front of the other and making things happen in my life. Every year is filled with lessons, growth, laughter, and more reassurance that this is the […]

Real Weddings

The universe is a really big place. Sometimes, the love of your life is standing right in front of you, and you don’t even realize it. Ashton and Tom had been in each other’s orbit for a while (Ashton’s sister is married to Tom’s brother-adorable right?!) but the stars never quite aligned, until all of […]

Business

2 years. 2 whole years ago, I jumped unexpectedly into being self employed FULL TIME. CRAZY. I was working a 40 hours a week, direct deposited pay check every other week position. I cried when I got my job at the company I worked for, I was so happy that I had security and safety, […]

For Brides

It’s that time of year, brides are wrapping up the final details for their weddings. This is when I get more questions and see more comments on good ol’ Facebook about wedding favors. My answer to these inquires is always in the form of a question, or rather two questions: Does your budget allow you […]

Jen and I met when I was called in to coordinate her bff Kara’s early 2016 wedding. Needless to say we hit it off right away and when I got the call from her one day, I was more than excited to help her plan her very own wedding! Jen was a little reluctant to […]

Tarah and I met through The Rising Tide Society 2 years ago. We quickly bonded over business ownership, wine, and The Bachelor. She is one of the sweetest and most genuine souls and I am so lucky to call her my friend. I have only known Tarah for a fraction of her time spent with […]
