One of the first things everyone thinks about when they book a photoshoot is their hair and makeup.
I’m the exact same way. We take selfies when we are having a good hair day. We make our significant others take photos with us when we finally managed to get our eyeliner even!
You know how the saying goes?
“Every once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.”
As he picked up the microphone and made his way to the center of the room the entire crowd fell silent. He had just given away his daughter. She was no longer the little girl that made friends by just walking in to the neighbors house. She was a bright, kind, amazing woman and she had found the man that was made just for her.

Okay, everyone. Here is my spoiler alert. My PSA and my warning.
This blog post is about it get a little heavy, as real as it gets and maybe has a little more attitude than I usually share. But if you ever wonder if you are alone in anything. This might just be for you.
“Why are you doing that?”
Early in the day the girls came up to me as I was photographing the details of their parents wedding day and asked this question.
“Because one day when you get older you get to look back on these photos and see what real love looks like. You get to decide that you want that on your own wedding day. You get to see how much your dad loves your mom. You get to see what love really is.”

I am always in awe of couples who can go the distance, quite literally, and maintain a relationship over incredible distances.

Okay you guys – lets be honest for a second. Flowers are some of the best things on wedding days. They are so pretty, feminine, and smell great. And they are by far the most photographed detail of your day. From your bridal, wedding party, ceremony and table top photos to the fun details of your rings, accessories and invitation set flowers are a huge part of telling the love story on your wedding day! So picking a florist who has a style that really speaks to you and fits your vision for your wedding is one of the most important things you can do!
