My wish for every single one of my couples is that they have as lush of a wedding day as Alyssa + Kyle had last September.

Whenever I have seen Sabrina + Mike, I have gotten giddy. There is just SOMETHING so unbelievably beautiful and precious about their souls that I am never able to shake. Maybe it’s their cute dimples, and the way they look at each other. Maybe it’s how they take the time to make keen observations before making any decisions…and when they do make their decisions, they are incredibly wise and kind. Maybe their eyes portray more than their words ever could. Maybe they’re just cool. MAYBE our souls just know how to high five each other…

I wrote styled shoot across the top of the page, and made categories within the list that I knew I could populate - hair, makeup, cake, invitation design, accessories. Within this list, I also had a few categories that I knew I needed to find - venue (v important), gowns, florals. My heart literally started beating hard and fast when I finished my list, I was that excited. But I was also nervous - what if I got my people on board, and couldn't pull together the rest?
