Two is Better Than One

For all of us who struggle with agonizing over decisions : healthy salad or cheesy fries? cute sundress or jeans and a t-shirt? venti sugar-free vanilla latte or herbal tea?

Let's take a moment to appreciate the wonder that is not decide! When gorgeous bride-to-be (and bridal shop owner) Samantha choose two unbelievable gowns for her October wedding, we knew it was a blog post just waiting to happen.

From the most amazing Fall inspired florals to an adorable pup on the front steps, our team couldn't help but feel unbelievably lucky to be a part of this Friday the 13th celebration!

Love Ya, Pumpkin


Perks to being a part of Alyssa and Mallory's wedding day:

1. These two were so sweet and easy-going. Their smiles and joy were totally infectious from start to finish!

2. Mallory's sister is a pumpkin farmer (which has to be in the running for the coolest job ever) so there were pumpkins galore. Like, everywhere. It was every girl's dream!

3. Each little detail was thoughtful and beautiful - from handkerchiefs for the guest's happy tears to sequined gowns for the bridesmaids, this day was made to be oohed and ahhed over. And there were pumpkins. Did we mention we loved the pumpkins?

Congratulations newlyweds!

Spring in Full Swing


It may not be Spring just yet, but we can always pretend, right?! 

Gorgeous photos by Arndt Photography have us reliving this picture-perfect May afternoon all over again. (Take a deep breath and you just may get a whiff of freshly mown grass or feel a warm breeze in the air.... well, maybe not but it's worth a shot.) We can't get enough of these beautiful love birds, and we have been dying to share this day with you ever since they tied the knot!

Got your glass of lemonade? Good. It's time to swoon over Amanda and Jeremy's beautiful day!
