I really just can’t say enough good things about these two. I love Meagan and Justin!!! When I got to meet with Meagan to talk about planning the big day, we ended up talking for way longer than originally planned! I knew Meagan from working at one of my favorite downtown boutiques. I was so honored […]

I remember first meeting with Anna and just loving how soft-spoken and sweet she is. We chatted over Chai fraps downtown while talking about her wedding day, structuring her timeline and her fiancé, Chris.

Mackenzie inquired with me shortly after Brian proposed. Her email said that she had told Brain weeks before that, whenever they got married, she wanted me to be a part of their special day…she just had no idea how soon it would be!!! Brian proposed in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris (DREAM come […]

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Anne and her sweet momma through the planning process (and her gorgeous bridal portraits), and LOVED spending the day with the rest of her sweet family and her amazing HUSBAND last weekend!
