Aside from being a bride myself, I’ve been in the photography biz for over a decade. I’ve learned a thing or two about weddings - this includes the good and the stressful. The best way to share what I’ve learned is through a bit of wit and sarcasm with a side of margarita.
Weddings are a celebration of our lives! They involve our communities and our families. You have found another person that you want to commit your life to, spend all your time with, and snore next to in bed. For Life! This is the ore of a wedding. This is marriage.
And then there is the wedding industry. I guess you could say that this page is just a part of it with “tips and tricks” on how your should or should not plan your wedding day. I certainly wouldn’t want this page to a spool in the wheel. You see, the wedding industry yells, no screajs, that your wedding day will be “the perfect day.” In fact, they tell you that this day wll be the best day of your life. A day with every detail planned to the nines, coordinated perfectly, and filled with curated things for your guests to feast their eyes upon.
For the love of all that is bacon, I hope your wedding day is not the best day or your entire life. I mean that. I hope you have many, many great days before and after and in-between. Your wedding day is a celebration of all of those days…past, present, and future.
Let me preface what is below with a few…notes, if you will. There is SO much inspiration, blog posts, and Pinterest boards out there. Some couples love the entire wedding planning process, the pomp and circumstance of a time int heir lives where everything is curated. And that is totally awesome. For others, the wedding planning process is described as overwhelming and frustrating. It’s considered a process with a never-ending to-do list that takes you down a rabbit hole you feel as though you will never crawl out of. Feeling that way is also perfectly acceptable.
It’s your engagement. It’s your wedding. It’s whatever you want to friggn’ make of it. So, I am going to tell you this ONE thing: YOU ARE ENOUGH. No matter what you read or don’t read on this page, I want you to remember that. Whatever you decided for your wedding and your marriage is enough. Just remember that.
...CAUSE WE'RE ALL ABOUT COUPLES DOING THINGS THEIR WAY. BUT WITH PURPOSE.
