I’m heading home for the holidays in TEN days! It sounds so crazy to say, but I haven’t been back in Houston since March. The fact that the countdown is almost in the single digits makes my heart so happy. I’m looking forward to some Christmas baking, wrapping gifts, lots of snuggles with our pup Sophie and taking a little bit of time off! This will be my family’s first Christmas back in our house since Hurricane Harvey (we were in a rental last year!), and I can’t tell you how happy I am to not only be heading home to the people I love but to the house where I grew up! If you need me in the meantime, I’ll be diving into blog drafts while prepping for a beautiful wedding this weekend! What’s on your to-do list this Tuesday?
I’ve been waiting to share some pretty from this styled wedding for a while now, and wanted to save it until I needed a little something pretty (and warm!!) to brighten my screen! You’ve probably seen these cuties all over the new site, and today, I am SO excited for you to dive into the FULL styled wedding from #TheWorkshopExperience with @katelynjames on the blog. These vendors poured their heart and soul into putting together one stunning setup. See more through the link in my profile! And a huge thank you to the crew that poured so much into putting together a stunning styled wedding: Workshop: @katelynjames Planning: @dearsweetheartevents Bridal Gown: @chantillylacebridals Bridesmaids Dresses: @renttherunway Hair: @glam_by_dana Makeup: @angelasutak Flowers: @amandaveronee Ribbon: @courtneyinghram Rentals: @paisleyandjade Paper and Calligraphy: @sincerelyamydesigns Cake: @sorbysweets
Today on the blog, I’m answering all of your questions related to my recent rebrand! From timelines to financials, the personal side of the rebrand, designs, and a little bit of everything in between... we're diving into it ALL! Tune in through the link in my profile! #FridayChatter
I’ve been working on the prep for blog post all day long, and I’m not going to lie... it may be one of my FAVORITES of all time! Over the next couple of weeks, my roommate and I have decided that we are going to do as many festive and fun holiday activities in DC as we possibly can. ✨ I know it sounds silly, but hear me out! For the last two years, I worked straight through the holiday season, right until the very day that I got to fly home. I’m someone that loves the holiday season, so this has always made me a little sad. Ok... it’s made me really sad! ✨ This year, I wanted to celebrate differently, so my roommate and I decided to make a list of the festive spots we want to visit & the activities that we want to do! We drafted the list today and got everything set to go on our calendars! ✨ We’re going to work through our big holiday list over the next couple of weeks, and I’ll share the recap with you on the 21st! (Right before I head home for Christmas this year!) ✨ We’re feeling pretty good about our itinerary, but I wanted to ask you today: Are there any fun holiday things to do around town that we may not know about?! We’re trying to keep the cost of this adventure as small as possible! If there’s anything you can think of that we absolutely must do, I would love to know in a DM or a comment! ⛄️🎄 ✨ PS Is anyone else ALSO missing the green leaves on the trees too?!
Wednesday morning looked like blog prepping and plenty of dreaming on my couch in pajamas... goodness am I thankful for this life that I get to call my own! I’m slowly working on building out blog content for the rest of the year! (Can you even believe we’re saying that?!) This Friday, you can expect to have all of your questions about my rebranding process answered! I’m also working on a few posts related to wedding planning and a super embarrassing recap of my 2018 season! FUN things are going down over on the blog, and I can’t wait to share more! If you have any questions or posts that you are hoping to see, let me know in a comment below 💕 📷: @savannahsmithphoto
Nothing sweeter than pressing “SEND!!” on a gallery that contains pretty like this! Gallery delivery day is the best day 💕 PS I just wanted to send a love note to those of you that are thinking of inquiring for a date in 2019! Dates are going FAST— what an honor! (Fall dates especially!) If you are planning a celebration for next year, please don’t wait to reach out! I would love to chat with you more about the day you are planning!
What’cha up to this week, friends? I’m working on a gorgeous wedding gallery, have a few meetings and appointments planned and will definitely be cozying up with a Christmas movie (or two or three!!) ✨ Shot while second shooting for @savannahsmithphoto 💕
