I remember attending my first styled shoot and being so incredibly intimidated by the whole thing that I honestly felt sick to my stomach from nerves pulling up. Total imposter syndrome. But yesterday arriving @hotelbennett it was less nerves and more the good kind of butterflies when you know something amazing is about to happen. And then I walked in and saw this scene created by a whole bunch of people on the top of their game and man oh man those butterflies took off like rockets. It’s pretty awesome being a part of an industry that I looked at with awestruck amazement not too long ago. I no longer feel like an imposter, but someone who worked their butt off to deserve a seat at the table. I am so proud of this shoot and these photos.

No seven year itch here. This still is and always will be the best day of my life, Tyler. Now just don’t tell Hudson and Beckham that 🤣 #theOGkdyebride
Yesterday I pretty much lost count of all the people that said Morgan is the glue that holds the seven kids on their family together. And to me that’s the best kind of person you can be. Because in the end what is that really matters in life? Your family. It’s the same for a wedding day. When the dress is hung up and the cake has been eaten and the dance party is over, it’s family that remains. And today is the first day of forever for your new family of two, Morgan and Nick. So Morgan, keep on being that glue!! And congratulations on a beautiful day that even torrential thunderstorms couldn’t stop us from getting on that beach!! A love built in Myrtle for sure 💜 #kdyebride #kdyecouple
Saturday Mood 🏄🏻♂️
This beauty was taken last July after I slid in to @nickipaigecollection’s DMs to meet up for coffee and hopefully collaborate on some fun projects. It kicked off our friendship and since then we’ve gotten to do a lot of fun things together!! But what struck me about thinking about this day was that back then Nicki wasn’t even taking on weddings of her own yet, as she was still under another company. I watched her launch her own business this year and since then I have watched her fill up her calendar with some pretty lucky brides get to have her behind the wheel on their big day, the first of which was my sister back in February. I am so damn proud of her and feel like a big sister of sorts (I am a few years older 😂) watching her grow. Monday we get to do another styled shoot together at @hotelbennett and I can’t wait to see what magic she’s come up with this time. Go give her a follow for all sorts of gorgeousness and tag someone you’re proud of today! ✨
We’ve done it all this summer: vacation, beach, pools, parks, cookouts, aquarium, children’s museum, movies, the list goes on. And now I am ready for back to school so badly and we still have three weeks left. 😱 seriously I love all this time with my boys, but I also thrive on being productive in my business and no school time often means no work time. I have definitely given myself some grace in feeling super behind, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t super excited to see back to school circles on my calendar so soon. Anyone else feel me?
