When you meet those cool internet people in real life 😘
Last night was so dang good for the soul. In an industry that can be a little lonely and whole lot of competitive there's something sweet about carving out a supportive community. Some of these folks I've followed along with for years and others more recently and it was so surreal to see them walk through the door. We sat around a table of Mexican food and shared the good things and the difficult. It's a huge reminder that in lieu of not having any designated co-workers you're never in this alone. And never should be. Reach out, set up a coffee date or a Skype chat if you need it (ahem... we all do). -
My face definitely hurt from smiling and my extraverted energy was for sure depleted but my heart is beyond full #friendsgiving
Sometimes it’s easy to get swept up in being laser focused on the bride, but we wouldn’t be having a wedding day without our grooms! That’s why I make it a point to get solo shots of the groom on wedding day. I believe every man deserves a killer black and white photo to document the way he looked and felt on the day he married the woman of his dreams!
JW Marriott's suites will provide your bridal party with an amazing view of the city while receiving hair and makeup services from our talented stylists.

Any first dance lovers out there?! This is easily one of my favorite parts of a wedding because it’s a few moments where the bride and groom get to be together completely uninterrupted. My sweet husband sang our wedding song to me the entire time, I loved every minute of it 💕
Shoutout to @erickamaephotography for letting me tag along to this sweet couple’s wedding with her! ✨
Days before designing Meghan + Nick’s wedding, I came across this fun @oasisfloralproducts gold mesh and really wanted to showcase it somewhere in the wedding. I gave it to @willarosefloral along with a bunch of roses and told her to design something cool on the fireplace. Isn’t it awesome, I love it! 🖤
This is how my Monday is looking! Out of office for a few days while soaking in the hot springs in the mountains of Idaho, getting massages, cocktails, mimosa flights, and charcuterie boards with my bestie over at @snakeriverwinetours. Also, incase you’re wondering Popeye’s chicken sandwich is worth ALL THE TALK.

Accurate representation of me telling my bridesmaids I’m going to need them to be my wedding planning assistants after this past weekend 🙃
Hey guys! I’m currently sitting at LAX waiting to board my plane for Australia & then Papua New Guinea. That being said, I probably won’t be able to answer DMs or emails until I get back on December 13th. (So message me within the next 4 hours if you want to hear from me. 😝) Thanks in advance for your patience as I take this little break from my business! I’m excited to see what the next few weeks will hold. 🧡

I am all about the details. There is nothing more important to me than making sure everything looks JUST right!
Fuelled by passion, I absolutely LOVE what I do and I love even more to share my work with others.
Do you (or someone you know - tag them below) have a special event coming up? Let’s chat!
Hello there! It has been awhile since I have shared a bit about myself. My name is Colleen, design enthuasist and world traveler. I have been planning and designing weddings for over six years and still love every minute of it! Between weddings, I travel as much as I possibly can. There is so much to see out there in the world! Here is a photo from my most recent trip to Italy and Switzerland. If you have not been, you definitely need to add them to your bucket list! ⠀
I rarely post my wedding work on my personal page but I’m too proud of this one not to. I love being able to see my growth over this year. So blessed to work with the best couples on their best days. Enjoy this one for me!
I have no words! Today was been simply AMAZING and the night is not even over! Congrats to Ellen and Ross! I cannot wait to share more soon ❤️
I’d say this was worth scaling a wall for! 😉

SNOW DAY for us in the Detroit area! I don’t ever remember getting this much snow before Thanksgiving, but this girl is not complaining. Maybe come April when there’s still snow, but not for now! 😉
And it wouldn’t be an official snow day without me posting one of my favorite winter photos. Can’t believe this day was almost two years ago!
I’m curious how many of my followers live in wintry climates. Tell me below! 👇🏼
Ashlee and Mike are MARRIED! These two are so perfect for each other and what an honor it was to capture their wedding day. Ashlee and Mike’s wedding day was so perfect from start to finish and I can’t wait to share more from it soon!
And yes 🙌🏼 to these sparkler photos! These are always so much fun to capture!!
I’m so excited to say that I welcomed FOUR new ECP couples to the family last week! I love getting to meet with all of these sweet people and hear about their wedding plans.
Popular 2020 dates throughout the summer and fall are booking up quickly. If you want to grab coffee, chat wedding plans and become friends, send me an email! I’d love to add a few more couples to the family for next year🖤

A sunset like this in November?! YESS! 🙌🏼 Don’t let this photo fool you though, it was freezing outside! Lena and Tyler are such a dream couple. They endured the cold and gusty winds for 3 hours for photos! SO worth it! Don’t you agree?!
Coming to the blog later today!!
