Eat, Sleep, Plan, Repeat!

If you know me, you know that I never really take breaks. During most of my breaks from school, I am assisting a wedding or two, helping other planners or vendors with tasks, having meetings with other planners or vendors to learn more about their businesses and the wedding industry or working on my many upcoming projects. I love learning about anything and everything I can that will set me up for success once I am running my business full-time.

Rustic Elegance - Deep Woods Styled Shoot

I am so excited to announce that I am planning a wedding styled shoot with my good friend and fellow wedding planner, Angelica Caluza from Anela Events. We have been working with an amazing vendor team (listed below) to put together something simply beautiful. This is my first styled shoot and one of the biggest planning experiences I have had the privilege to work on. I feel blessed to have the support from all of these vendors. We designed this mock-wedding to have a romantic and rustic feel,  while still remaining elegant. The shoot is set in a beautiful forest, and our choices of rentals are classic and simple. Angelica and I were inspired by many things when choosing the design and color palette. The mix of blue tones, ivory and gold against the classic wood furnishings and forestry around us, provides a picturesque display, I cannot wait to share with you. We chose clean, white flowers to add a pleasant contrast to the dark, lush, forestry. We are truly astounded by how pleasantly everything is coming together.
