As most of you know by know, I am currently on vacation in Spain w/ my little sister. Last November while day dreaming on @cheapoair I happened to stumble across an incredible deal for airfare and I could not say no. So here I am 8 days into vacation and I'm loving it.
But here's the reality: I'm kinda ready to come home. Why you may ask? Well I miss home, I miss my boyfriend and I miss my friends. Vacation is cool and all but it's never the same when you can't share it with everyone you truly love. I love my sister but there are other incredible people in my life I miss. Love is kinda a big deal in my books. So tell me: what's important to you? For me it is the incredible people in my life 💐
I love finding new gems! Like the @hollandsche_manege in Amsterdam last week. So many pretty details right in the center of town. Lovely to see how much beauty actually surrounds us, if we look for it. Makes me happy 🌿
Is there anything dreamier than the @foundrentals headquarters? Probably not. @lvl_academy hosted the most beautiful intimate dinner for their academy attendees in this gorgeous space amidst the most incredible #foundfinds and it was nothing short of amazing! 😍 📷 by @lorelymeza .

Wedding season is here, ready or not. May marks my ninth year as a wedding planner. What on earth? Where has the time gone? I am fortunate that @henderson_cw has put up with me for three years. As Lead Planner, Candice has one heck of an eye for detail. If you want a stellar, well calculated layout, a delicious well thought out menu, or an amazingly calm demeanor, she's your gal. What an asset she is to this business over the past 175 events she's been a part of. Brides, thank you for letting Candice and I be part of your wedding plans. We are ready to bring you a stellar year. Let's do it! - Meghan
We hope you guys love these proposal stories as much as we love sharing them! @jessiebarone_ says "Andrew and I met about three years ago, working on the same project in Silicon Valley. Instantly we were making each other laugh, and it took off from there. We adventured everywhere together from backpacking the backcountry of Yosemite, to biking through the desert at Burning Man, to skiing in Tahoe! Last weekend, we were planning on going to South Lake despite the warnings of a big storm coming. We said screw, it and made it up anyway. That night we went to dinner at our favorite spot, sharing campfire stouts and good food - and then we strolled around the Gondola to Heavenly Village. Suddenly under twinkling strings of lights and snow all around, Andy got down on one knee and asked. It was such a beautiful moment, and we can't wait for our lifetime of adventures ahead."

We love furry friends included in celebrations! Was going through our photos with one of our brides and I had to take a moment to introduce her to "Donut". Our little ring bearer for Dominique & Maryam's wedding. Photo by: @photobymarirosa #weddingdogs#puppiesinweddings#floralwreath#furryfriends
I love the challenge of mixing various feels and inspirations into a cohesive, beautiful design. This suite I designed and calligraphied is very classic and traditional with gold calligraphy yet has more modern elements like hexagonal tiles 😍, a vintage save the date postcard and organic hand torn deckled edges. It's not about one feel or inspiration, it's how your story can be told through beautiful design, pen and paper.

I'm working on a collaboration with the super talented Celena Taylor of @francisandcompany It's going to be so amazing and hopefully I can show you the results next week. But here's a peek at my paper hydrangeas and her gorgeous gold calligraphy on white tile. What a creative way to display names at your dinner parties or wedding!

It has been a great and very productive couple of days in Northwest Arkansas, but boy am I ready to get home to my main man and favorite little pup! While our company operates under my name, this guy is the real brain and brawn of the business! We could not do it without him and I'm beyond thankful for his constant support! Ready to get home and hug on my guys!!! || Photo Cred: @katimallory #ACAWeddings#ACABrides
I'm working on next week's blog post of Michael and Brandi, and I just have to share one more sneak peek! I'm so excited we chose a greenhouse for their engagement session, because it looks so warm and it defiantly wasn't a warm day! How cute and cosy do they look!! Keep your eyes out for more of them on the blog next week!! ❤️

Seeing my FAVORITE day of my entire LIFE on @stylemepretty today! 💕 I still get teary-eyed looking at my wedding photos. I can't wait to be back here in a couple weeks for the @bloomtheworkshop 🙌🏻 REPOST:
@spostophoto here coming at you with this classically elegant wedding that took our breath away! From the dusty blue silk runners, to the rustic wooden tables, this tuscan-esque wedding design was one for the books! #LBBtakeover | Photography: @spostophoto | Event Coordination + Styling: @engagedandinspired | Floral Design: @growinggrace_fd | Rentals: @chiceventrentals | Linens: @latavolalinen | Textiles: @tonoandco | Venue: @holmanranch | Film Processing: @richardphotolab
Someone once told me not to sweat the small stuff. But I'm a firm believer in the details.
Thank you for the greatest team ever for working tirelessly to bring my dream to life -- You're the absolute best of the best and I love you all more than words! 💕
We offer a complimentary engagement session with all of our wedding collections and I would encourage all newly engaged couples to schedule one with a professional photographer. This session is not only fun, but so beneficial for building trust and getting to know your photographer better. My couples then know what to expect and always feel more comfortable and relaxed on their big day. . . .
