This really beautiful, intimate backyard soiree was filled with some of my favorite details ever of all the weddings I’ve orchestrated in my almost 7 years […]

Typing up this post to go hand in hand with Emily and Matt’s wedding brought on some seriously melancholy feelings for me today. See, Emily and Matt (and especially Emily’s family) become somewhat of my own over the almost 17 months we planned this celebration together. I was welcomed into their home with open arms, […]
