Timelines are stressful and couples planning weddings are often afraid they are leaving things out. The truth is, that’s rare. The overarching issue that I see most often is too much detail, and way too precise of a time for each line item to happen. When you’re sitting on your computer typing it out and […]

If only one good thing comes out of my life being pretty much completely on hold right now, other than flattening the curve, perhaps it’s that I’ve had the time to put some deep thought into things I’ve had on my to-do list for a while. One of those things was revamping the titles of […]

This past July I had the honor of being present for one of the most heartfelt weddings I have ever witnessed. You see, sometimes a couple is just so absolutely perfect for each other, that the connection is palpable. It sounds so cliché but honestly, if you know Cassandra and you know Clay, you know […]

On a warm (very warm) day in late June, Erin and Andy said I DO to a life of endless adventures together.
