Expectation - Them: What do you wanna do for your birthday, Ryan? Me: Let’s get together and have a great time! Reality - Them: So, what are we doing for your birthday, Ryan? Me: You can do whatever you want but I’ll be taking the day off to continue recovering from wedding season 😳😭 #introvertproblems 😂 On a more serious note, here’s another thank-you to everyone who messaged, called or decided to give me a surprise visit yesterday (you know yourselves)! ♥️ If you’ve followed my journey long enough, you know how much I preach about stories and embracing the ones that our live tells. Well, in the spirit of embracing, I’d like to thank you all, the Aperture Lane familia, for being a part of my story. 🙏🏾😭 Have a great weekend!
I’ve been finding this perspective very helpful in the last few months. What do you think? Anyone planning a wedding and getting stuck on other’s opinions?
But for real though! Think about all the valuable skills you refine while planning a wedding: time-management, conflict-resolution, budgeting, negotiation, scheduling, team management. 💪🏾💪💪🏻💪🏽💪🏿💪🏼 Did I miss anything??
New things usually put us in a situation where we get a bit lost or frustrated. Whether it’s starting a new job, a new health routine or PLANNING A WEDDING, we end up making lots of “mistakes” that can affect not only ourselves, but others. 😓 As you plan your wedding with your mate, remember that there was no course in school for planning a wedding. You guys are figuring out this new, overwhelming venture together. 💛 That being said, give each other a little more grace when things on the list don’t get done, when expectations aren’t communicated clearly or even when someone needs a break from planning as a whole. It will all get one one way or another. Just don’t let it be at the expense of your relationship! 😅 Share this with someone who needs to see this!
After seeing @healthy.minimalist drop an anniversary post a couple days ago, it reminded me of our time shooting that wedding 4 years ago! 😱 Not only was it a reminder of how time flies, but also a reminder of how much I love hearing couple’s personal vows. That’s always the highlight of any wedding ceremony for me! ❤️ It’s great insight into the couple as we collect ingredients for their story, and it’s great content for editing their film… especially if there are tears of course! 😏 Anyone doing personal vows for their wedding?
The little moments with seemingly not much going on that contain so much. Careful not to miss those. Know what I’m talking about?
