• When I posted for Ashlen and Tyler's anniversary this weekend I realized I haven't shared any of @alleejphoto amazing images from the wedding? How? Why? I think I need my head checked! 🙈

Don't you just love the soft romantic textures of @ashlen_sturdivant #bridalbouquet? It was every bit as elegant and timeless as she.

  • Tonight I was hired to help create a little magic for 14 ladies and it got me to thinking ... What if the magic, romance, beauty, connection (fill in the blank with that special something you long for) that we lack in our crazy mundane lives starts with simple intentions?

You don't need a magazine worthy spread. Take one little step into the extraordinary. String lights in the trees. Eat on a picnic blanket or the good china. Have dessert first. Plan that dinner with friends (even if it means scheduling a month out). Clip a few flowers from the yard. Send a "thinking of you" text.

What simple ways do you celebrate the life you are living right now?

  • Happy First Anniversary to @emilydawnleinen and @jacobadammota!

It was an honor not only to coordinate their wedding day but to also design their flowers. Emily wanted texture, wildflowers, and green but nothing fluffy or traditional. I still love how stunningly her bouquet came together.

  • Yesterday I had the honor of partnering with some amazing vendors for an editorial at the new Willows Event Center. Until I can share the pro pics here's a little peak at the bride and bridesmaid #bouquets.

And, Lubbock brides if you are looking for a beautiful, urban venue you should check out @thewillowseventcenter!

  • Congratulations to @mckenzie_lynn97 and Kolton! Their whole wedding day yesterday had a sweet air of calm. And, their tenderly choreographed first dance left me a little misty-eyed.

During the reception, the anniversary dance revealed that McKenzie & Kolton have been surrounded by many long lasting marriages. 80% of the couples on the dance floor have celebrated at least 20 anniversaies. The longest married couple will celebrate their 50th this fall. They shared this great advice: "Commit to doing the hard work." Yes there are lots of good seasons in marriage and even some easy ones. But committing to talking it out, when you'd rather be angry. Doing that (sometimes daily) hard work, even in the small things, adds up. Into, a couple still "in love", giving heartfelt and hard earned advice to newlyweds, and planning that celebratory cruise.

  • A flashback to @morganlaneb and Brode's engagement session with @mikayladawnphotography this spring.

This dreamy woodsy scene is helping me transition from the frantic not-enough-time get-out-of-town preparations to vacation mode now that we are on the road. (Only four hours late. 😬 Nature or nurture I blame my overly optimistic time estimates and/or overloaded to do lists on my parents. 😂) Only a quick mini vacation this year but I am looking forward to getting a little time in the mountains.

What are your favorite vacation destinations/activities?
