@Regranned from @thetrapwitch - I'm really sad to be leaving already because clearly I didn't know the Brooklyn love, let alone NYC altogether. I need more time here next time but now I know what to expect. This was a risk I took coming here. This is something I spoke about last night at my event. Risk taking. Sometimes you don't know if something is what you want until you move yourself to go out and get it. To experience it. To touch it, feel it, see it, taste it, hear it. We so often close our senses off to things that we are scared of. The unknown. How can we be afraid of the unknown unless we try and see what it's about? It may be the biggest blessing we miss out on. The biggest blessing you may ever have in your life might be around the corner and some people are often too afraid to leave the block. I'm not scared to leave the block. Sometimes though, the blessings show up right at your yard or door if you've been a beacon of light to attract them and all you have to do is answer the knock. What are you attracting? All that I wish for everyone in 2018 or starting before is solid gold. True prosperity. None of that fake shit. Things that have foolishly convinced you that abundance was there, enough of that. It first is going to take being real with yourself. You want real blessings? Be a real blessing. You want real love? Be real love. You want to leave the block you think you're stuck on? Then really move. So many of us are afraid of the risks but we are risking the rewards by putting up our resistance. Do you know what you deserve? Claim that shit. Come for everything they say you can't have. Risk it all. Get big rewards in 2k18. Fourth quarter strong 💪🏾⚡️Let's go 🏆Thank you NYC 🗽 - #regrann#FearNothingFriday#TheTrapWitch#TakeRisks#BeaconOfLight
nicole and tyler are adventurers. they are going to slowly see the entire world, i have no doubt. they aren't afraid of getting dirty, climbing walls, jumping in puddles, sleeping outside, walking in the mountains, surfing in the ocean, or going to a new country on their honeymoon.
they weren't afraid of rain on their wedding day. as their family portraits began under a tent, the rain picked up. it got suddenly worse. they looked at each other, looked at me and said; we don't care. let's go outside in the rain for photos. this is our day, it's our only day, and we don't care if we get wet. we want to remember.
you see friends, this is such an important attitude on your wedding day if you want photos that aren't under awnings or tents. i'm always up for an adventure, so scott and i grabbed the most umbrellas we could find and we huddled their entire bridal party under umbrellas in the middle of a field for some incredible photos. as we finished the bridal party, the rain stopped and behind is appeared an incredible small little thicket of fog that emphasized a beautiful colorful mountain behind us.
it was incredible.
if we would have stayed inside and prayed for the rain to end, we would have never made it out there to the field. we would have never got the fog bride and groom pictures. they would have never danced in the rain, and laughed as hard as they did. they would have never had time to do all that and enjoy their reception.
tyler and nicole know how it's done. live in the moment. fly by the seat of your pants. your dress will get cleaned if you want it to be. no one is going to point out dirt on the bottom of your skirt. but when you get your wedding photos back, you're going to cry tears of happiness knowing that you had an incredible rainy adventure with the love of your life on the beginning of the biggest adventure of your life, which is your marriage.
tyler & nicole - your photos are uploading now <3

“Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution.” -Albert Einstein 😆
Isn’t that the truth.
Some people have something negative or critical to say about anything.
No matter what!
A lot of times it’s because they don’t have the courage to take a risk or do something they want to do so they will say things to keep other people from doing it.
We let other people’s opinions hold us back.
Be careful who you surround yourself with.
Positive people lift you up and help you realize your true potential.
Negative people will create problems that aren’t even there and they will bring you back down to their level.
Stay true to you! 💖
Thank you @selfmagazine for spotlighting the story of @sassclassnyc! This music video dance class made me a new woman (like who am I in that image there?! WORK!). And I owe it all to the founder/choreographer/director @julsoko! And to my SassClass burlesque and chairography choreographer @tonyguerrero5678! See link in bio :). #sassclass#sassclassnyc#selfmagazine#self#dance#expressyourself#feminineexpression
You know what's even better than adorable little boutonnieres? The person who makes them. Amanda @everyone_deserves_flowers is warm, and positive, and puts her heart into everything she does. I know Amanda's work whenever I see it. Her personal touch is what I love most.
