1. DO NOT go over the top on lighting and small details, no one pays attention to your napkins or your table runners (although mine HAD to match the sweetheart table perfectly.) People notice the love, the atmosphere, the energy, not the forks and knives.
Getting married is absolutely one of the happiest times and events of your entire life. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most expensive. Unless your plan is to go the way of a simple courthouse wedding, you’ll find yourself with expenses that you didn’t even know were customary when it comes to weddings. There are so many things that go into a wedding that you don’t realize until you find yourself in the position of planning your wedding. A wedding dress, dresses for the bridal party, a tux, flowers, venue, catering, and drinks are just the beginning.
We’re starting the New Year out with a bang…and a ROCK!!
A quick little backstory about the day…I had a photo shoot booked in the city (in Chicago), with a photographer that reached out to me through the blog. He was in town for the weekend, and asked if I was up to collaborate on a shoot. I get a lot of random inquiries from people reaching out to me on IG or the blog…but this photographer had some really nice shots, and the timing worked out, so I decided to do a collab with him. I thought it would be an awesome opportunity to get some nice shots of Bart and I in the city before he moves to California. So we set it up for January 1st, which was the only day we could actually make it out to the city, since Bart had to work the next couple days.
