Our Wedding Day: The First Look

Aug 24, 2016

To do a first look or not do a first look? That was the question.

Actually, it wasn't a question at all! Ryan & I knew we wanted a first look from the moment we started wedding planning. Having only an hour after the ceremony to take pictures and make our guests wait on us sounded like a logistical nightmare. Unless you happened to have a 2pm Catholic wedding, then by all means I would take photos after the ceremony. We wanted to get our portraits, wedding party photos and some family photos out of the way so that later we could focus on other things (like practicing our dance!). We got to spend some extra time with each other that day and it was completely worth it. Here's a look at the first time I got to see my handsome groom!

Happy Monday, y'all! Today I'm sharing my outfit from the last day of The Blog Societies Conference. In case you missed it, you can read my recap here. When visiting the charming city of Charleston, a stop by Rainbow Row is a must (especially if you're a blogger wanting to get some fun photos!). It is a long row of houses located on East Bay Street that are every color of the rainbow- my favorite being the pink and turquoise ones. They truly add to the southern charm and history of The Holy City.

The Blog Societies Conference

Happy Friday, loves! As you may know, I recently went to my first ever blog conference (and certainly not my last) and it was such a great experience! This has been a blogging goal of mine for a while now and I'm so glad that I finally made it happen. I wanted to share some highlights of the weekend with y'all as well as the top 3 things I learned from attending The Blog Societies Conference in the beautiful city of Charleston.

Hi, friends and welcome back for another installment of wedding Wednesday, the #sapelebration edition! Yes, I was pretty much obsessed with our hashtag and the fact that it shows how to pronounce our last name... the right way ;) Today I'll be sharing some highlights from the morning of our wedding day and what a glorious morning it was! After a year and a half of planning the big day was finally here and I cannot wait to share it with you guys! Ps. Ryan & I had such an amazing team that helped make this day run so smoothly and all vendor credits will be at the bottom of this post.

Hi, friends!! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I squeezed in some TV time (so. many. shows.) but yesterday was a super productive day. I went to brunch with Ryan's family and then me, him and his mom headed back to our condo to do some major cleaning. And I mean MAJOR! We are getting ready to put our place on the market so this was way overdue and honestly it felt great to throw out so much junk. Our place is spotless and let's hope it can stay that way!
