It isn't that you have to be perfect on your wedding day.  You only have to be you.

Allow your images to capture your soul and nothing short of beauty can be the result.

What would you do . . . If it poured rain at your appointed sunset photoshoot time?  Girl nobody looks forward to being cold and wet.  But, think about it as an opportunity for something different.  What if you do it anyways, throw some @kahlua in your coffee and make something stunning of it.  You won't regret it, you will likely have some fun, and you can always reschedule the sunset part. .

As a bride you work to create a unique look and feel that is just right for your best day ever.  Whether you create a look to impress #marthastewart or have a cliffside ceremony just the two of you, what a joy it is to capture the results of your efforts in images that last a lifetime.
.
.
.
The lace sleeves or interesting back on your gown, the extra bit of texture in your invites, the focal flower in your bouquet and table arrangements, your shoes (one of my favs for sure), the dessert display, and the venue you select are all part of making wedding vibe come to life.  And that vibe will come through in the images for you to remember for a lifetime!

Like every bride ever, you have a vision in your mind's eye of your wedding day.  The perfect flowers is a big part of making the look and feel of the day match the vision in your head. .
.
.
There are amazing florists out there, and so many creative ways to use flowers to enhance your day.  A bouquet is just the beginning for many, but for others, the bouquet is everything.  Regardless of which camp you fall in, your flowers should bring you an extra measure of joy on the best day of your life!

This bouquet by @katalingreen thrilled both the bride and everyone involved with her wedding.  It was such a joy to see Ali's face when she saw her flowers for the first time.  And we had fun getting photos of it too!

It is a new season!  Summer is fading and the patterns of life in the fall are quickly taking hold. .
.
.
New seasons bring a sense of new beginning, a desire to set goals and a hope for thing to come.  How about your goals for this season?  Anything super amazing up your sleeves?

As I was driving home from a wedding in Whitefish yesterday I listened to some amazing women sharing conversations on The Happy Hour Podcast with @jamieivey .  They brought laughter, motivation, inspiration and tears.  But most of all they brought an appreciation for the need to connect and have comminity.
. .
.
So that's my goal this season - to connect and build community when and where I can!

A quick reminder:  while the dress, the flowers, the meal, the venue and all the other details are fun and amazing, there is nothing more important on your #weddingday than the two of you and how you love each other. .

This girl!  She will be singing at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds this Friday night.  If you can it will be worth the cost of admission.  She is pretty damn amazing!  I think she goes on around 10!

Your best friend is going to be there helping you through your day, and it will all be a blur of excitement and maybe a little nerves.  But when you get your gallery and see all that she did, you'll get all the feels of appreciation all over again!

Not all brides want a first look, and that is okay.  But whether or not you see your groom before you walk down the aisle, your daddy's response to how you look before he escorts you is a moment not to be missed!

A month after your wedding you want to find a tear in your eye as you look at your photos and realize how truly amazing your day was.
.
.
.
A year later you want to open your album and throw your head back in laughter at the joy those photos reflect.
.
.
.
In 20 years when you show your daughter your wedding album you want her to catch her breath as she sees how amazing you look!
.
.
.
Those things won't happen by accident.  That's why we sit down together and plan the day, the vibe of the photos you want, and what it will take to make them happen.
.
.
.
Then, on wedding day you can relax your mind about the photos and know what is coming your way will accomplish all your goals .

"Who does your eyelashes?" Her reply: "No one.  Those are my own."

For me, it is my teeth - no braces and they've always been straight.  What is it for you? .
