whimsical bohemian photoshoot

Sorry for the horrible delay in posting! Below you will find some awesome pictures from a gorgeous photoshoot that I had the privilege of being a part of. I loved working with Liz from Fogarty Photography and Jackie from Primrose & Co. They are both incredible at what they do and I would highly recommend them. You may also notice some tassel garlands in the pics :)
 
Oh, and we were featured on a couple of blogs including Capitol Romance. Enjoy!























 
 
 I think my favorite part of the shoot is the pallet table with the blankets and pillows. I just love the way it turned out!

the importance of a wedding planner

With Pinterest and Style Me Pretty and all the other picture sites and wedding blogs, brides are looking for DIY (do-it-yourself) ideas for wedding planning. While this isn't necessarily a bad thing, I would like to highlight a few very key reasons to consider hiring a wedding planner.
 
1. Wedding Planners have connections with TONS of other vendors. And, because of these working relationships they are often able to get discounts and deals for their brides. So, in the end it will save you money because they will help you find the best vendor to fit your budget. Plus, you will be getting a trusted and reputable vendor.
 
2. You don't have time to plan your wedding or are unsure of how to turn your Pinterest wedding board into a reality. Wedding planners thrive on creating new and different weddings and love spending their time devoted to make the wedding of your dreams come to life.
 
3. Details. Details. Details. There are so many important details that go into weddings and a wedding planner will make sure you don't forget any of them. The details can really make a wedding stand out and be unique. 
 
4. Maybe you want to plan your wedding yourself and have the necessary means to do so, what are you going to do on your wedding day? You want to be able to relax and enjoy your day and have it be as stress-free as possible. A day of wedding coordinator can ensure that your day goes smoothly and happens exactly as you have planned.
 
Hiring a planner will be a worthwhile investment in more ways than one. Until next week...
