Okay you won’t want to miss out on this especially if you’re hosting thanksgiving this year! I love hosting and everything that comes with it, but often times it can also be super stressful.
Click the link in my bio to see how to overcome one of the most stressful parts of the day. Happy hosting!

Sifting through images for a website refresh, and I’m reminded of each event. As I reflect on my gratitude during this Thanksgiving week, I am truly grateful for the opportunity to bring beautiful things into the world, to help people celebrate life’s happiest moments. There’s so much sadness, anger, and unrest in our world - to have the chance to carve one tiny piece out of that is such a gift. In this case, a teeny tiny piece: a hot pink table number.
Nothing makes a statement like a killer train, right? Here is ‘Eva’ - one of the Atelier’s personal favorites from the 2018 Westbury Collection of @mariafarbinni.
Exclusively at Roma Sposa.
It’s been 134 days or 4 months 11 days and 11 hours to be exact...we basically have spent 6.5 out of 7 days a week working on the main floor. But now we have a plumbing issue...like our water pressure sucks. It legit took me 5 minutes to wash off a dish (a slighttttt exaggeration for effect). So that needs to be addressed. The biggest thing I’ve learned so far is patience, things take a whole lot longer than a 60 minute episode of Fixer Upper portrays🤣. Like if you think it’s going to take 2 hours, it will probs take you 4. Totally appreciating the fact that we are able to accomplish all of these things ourselves, tho! It will be all worth it in the end! But for right now it’s a whole lot of caulking and filling holes and painting, nothing IG story worthy. But we are adding our window mouldings tomorrow, then we will be one step closer to getting our carpet installed💃🏻. Hallelujah, that will be one happy day! Night loves😘
Our 1959 Bentley, 1946 Buick and 1958 Rolls Royce in order for the @peacockroomdetroit soft opening today! Join us this Saturday, November 25th to celebrate their official grand opening! We'll be there from 11am-1pm. Come check out the new store and take some cool shots by the cars. #SmallBusinessWeek
When you send a confirmation of a consultation and the bride asks for your @starbucks order so she can bring you something, you melt a little. When she and her mom are even nicer in person during the meeting, you’re reminded how lucky you are to do what you do. This week, I’m reflecting on all I have to be thankful for - my amazing clients are definitely on the list, one chai tea at a time. 💕
I love vow books! Some bride and grooms prefer to not say their vows in front of everyone, that’s ok! I still love when they write them and Even share them with one another. Another great idea is to read them at a first look, best of everything!
Hey there Monday 😴😴 for me, I have lots of work to get done before Wednesday when family gets in town and the holiday starts! So if ya need me I’ll be drinking all the coffee and editing my face off :) anyone else have a crazy week before you can enjoy thanksgiving?

ABOUT LAST NIGHT... The Atelier loves to support amazing causes in our community and yesterday evening, we had the honor to support the @lbdcharityevent, on its 10th Anniversary! Special thanks to @lbdcharityevent, @bianchis_salon, @hourdetroitmagazine, @thetownsendhotel, the host and hostess, and the fabulous models! 😘😘😘
Those of you who know me personally know that I haven't had the best, shall we call it, luck when it comes to relationships. 🍀
It's been a long bumpy road that has left me beaten down and tired. Some have asked "How can you shoot weddings? Don't they bring up bad memories?" 💍
And my answer is sometimes. But getting to know these couples and being so intimately involved in their big days is bigger than that. Each one fills me with hope.
A hope that someday I'll find a guy who looks at me like all of my grooms look at their bride. These sweet glances are everything. And it's an honor every time I get to be the one to capture them. 💚
Couples who laugh together, stay together🤣. I totally felt like it was 10:00pm until I looked at my phone. It gets dark so early. Ughhhhh! And it rained alllllll day today. My husband is currently sanding all of that black glue off our floors so we can install the new hardwood. It’s not a fun job, but I’m super excited to have a smooth and clean floor! Happy Saturday!
