Lately, I've been talking about how important it is to make your wedding truly your own. Here's a real life example of a couple adding their own personal touches to their elopement to make it feel so unique and authentic: -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Amy + Renee chose Taos as their elopement location because it's been the home of Renee's family for generations. They love to travel together, and considered a destination elopement, but in the end it just felt right to be home in a place that's so special to them. -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Before they even started dating, Renee felt inspired to write poetry about Amy, and has filled a notebook with poems about their love. She read from this book on their wedding day, and it was so incredibly special! During the ceremony, each guest read or recited poetry that they selected themselves, including Renee's grandfather reciting a work written in Spanish by his wife. We were all crying! - I will always remember these special touches added to this amazing ceremony. What personalization would you or did you add to your wedding ceremony? - Flower crown: @floriography_flowers Amy's skirt: @jordanderuiter Amy's top: @bhldn
I love forests. I love the ocean. I love the desert. Earth has so many beautiful landscapes for us to experience, but I don't think anything is quite as beautiful in my eyes as majestic mountains! Anyone else with me on this?
My favorite kind of bride is the one who hops across the river rocks without me asking her to. The kind that is up for a hike on her wedding day. The kind who wants to be surrounded by nature when she marries her best friend. Here's to all you #adventurousbrides !
As much as I love exploring awesome places with my clients, I think it's always important for them to soak in the moment together and connect. 💛
I've seen something happening in the last few years that I'm really excited about. Couples are realizing that they can do whatever the heck they want for their wedding, and it's awesome! - I love love love that Stephanie wore this awesome red dress for her desert elopement! Honestly, it fit her personality so well, and I can't imagine her in anything else!
Sustainability and eco consciousness is something that’s been on my heart a lot lately. I grew up living in a green home with parents who taught me about saving water, recycling, and the #leavenotrace principles. At some point I stopped educating myself about the new things I could be doing, and maybe even slipped in a few of the areas I already knew about. - A few months ago I found @letskeepitwild and excitement about their trash cleanups lead me to join the #wildkeepers program. And then the flood gates opened! Suddenly I was reading all kinds of articles about reducing plastic use, volunteering at parks, and even learning about entirely new things like the idea of slow fashion. I was so excited to find new products that help us live more sustainable lives. - In the span of just a few months, I feel like I see things in a new way. I’m just one person, trying to live life a little more consciously, but every little bit from every person is something. Put it all together and it’s big! - So if you’re thinking you’d like to do something to take better care of our planet, just take the first baby step. It will lead to more. And totally message me if you want ideas! I think I’ll also post some accounts/products with missions that I love on IG stories!
