Oh dreamy February.
We just had valentine's day, spring is around the corner... my 30th birthday is this Saturday.
I don't plan on making myself a cake..but if I did she would look something like this beauty!
I took headshots of @tessaannephotography today, and y’all. Look at these! Thank you to Tessa for letting me experiment with different lighting and use my new #fractalfilters . I hope you love these as much as I do! 🥰
The changes I made did not happen overnight but I was simply tired of being tired. ⠀
I was tired of needing multiple naps a day. ⠀
I was tired of hating bathing suits. I was tired of hating my body.⠀
I was tired of complaining about my body & doing nothing to change it. ⠀
So guess what, I decided it was time for a change & I made it. It took time. It was never easy but everyday I became more & more proud of myself. It was the days I was able to modify less or I was able to say no to the treat. Those days created a habit in my mind & showed me what I am capable of.⠀
That’s where the change started. There is nothing fancy to my story. No quick fix. Nothing I have done is insane and unrealistic for you. You can do whatever you set your mind to. You just have to want a change.

From the robes to the beautiful white dresses, I just loved the style from Cameron's wedding.
I have more stunning images from this wedding I will share later, it was the most beautiful wedding ever.
Despite forecast predictions leaving us worried it was going to be gray all day, the sun peeked out at the perfect time for Mary Kate and Jimmy's engagement session! I think it was probably the warmest and sunniest winter engagement session I’ve ever had.
Did you know that all of my wedding packages include a second shooter? We want to catch all the little moments and feelings from your day! I love looking through her photos after a wedding and seeing her take on things!

Cheers to a short work week!🥂 If you are in the process of wedding planning, one of my favorite parts of the day is getting a few quick shots of all the ladies together right before the bride gets in her dress!💗 I remember doing this on my wedding day and it was such a fun way to start the day! Did I mention, how glamorous the NEW bridal suite is at the @historicmankinmansion!😍 The RVA area has some beautiful venues! #mariehamiltonphotography @kodabearrr

Thank You, Thailand 🇹🇭. If you know me, you know I’ve always wanted to visit an asian country and eat as much food as my heart’s content. Well officially crossing Thailand off the bucket list trips of a lifetime. Full to the brim of sun, Thai teas, and mango sticky rice for years to come. Not so much looking forward to this 13+ hour trip back to the states, but feeling refreshed and ready to get back into the swing of things. Goodbye Thailand, you’ll be surely missed! #simplybreatheevents#dcweddingplanner#thailand#phuket#phiphiisland

✨Monday inspo inspired by limoncello + warmer temperatures. Is it even winter? I think spring will be here before we know it! 😆
What is your brand style? This beautiful inspiration board was all about having an elegant yet organic and natural style. We wanted to evoke softness but with a touch of timeless elegance. I love every single detail 😍😍😍
Finally getting around to uploading galleries from 2019, and I’m just over here missing all these beautiful flower filled days with the girls making things like this! @theblushevents@nicolecolwellphotography

Another busy weekend checked off!! ✅ I finished it with this sweet engagement session in Annapolis with Megan and Josh!! We spent a few hours together being chauffeured around by her dad who taught me all about history of the town and about the naval academy campus! It was an amazing afternoon getting to know the three of them more and loved how these two connected with each other for every photo! M & J, I'm so excited for your wedding next month at the @westingeorgetown!!
We love draping an altar with alllll the greens, loose garden blooms, and a touch of candlelight. This wedding was out in beautiful Roanoke, Virginia at the end of our fall wedding season. It was a cold and rainy day, but the candlelight made the indoor venues so cozy! @mollyhagan_photo

Years ago, there was a wedding in our community where the bride’s mother grew all the flowers for the wedding. I remember thinking how much work that would be, not to mention stressful if something went wrong. But now? I think it’s a genius idea and I would totally have done that myself if I knew 7 years ago what I know now. Since I can’t go back in time and redo my own wedding flowers, the next best thing is to let you know that I can grow your flowers for your special day! If you want that straight-from-the-garden-seasonal-flower feel for your wedding, I can help bring it to life. There’s still time to plan flowers for a summer/fall wedding this year yet and the sky is the limit for 2021! So let’s chat!
Would this interest you or someone you know? Tag them below!
It was a beautiful day today (for February) and a busy weekend of venue tours. Thanks to all that came out! This pic was from several months ago when everything was green, new grasses coming in and warm temps! The first event of the season is just around the corner - we are ready for a BUSY year and new amenities! Wishing everyone a great week! Photo: @captstoots
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am officially done with this cold, dreary weather. Spring is welcome at any time! ✨Dreaming of warmer days at @danielle.rose.dusseault ‘s wedding, with that rich, golden light and sweet summer breeze.
The ceremony space is a sacred one, as well as the first impression for your event. It sets the tone is all kinds of ways for your day and this was no different for S&M’s waterfront wedding! Custom rugs, hand strung florals behind the wedding party, tons of greens of course, and eclectic lanterns made the scene and gave a little taste of the reception to come. How will you incorporate your look into the ceremony?!

2019 was my year of becoming a unicorn. My hair became a home for a rainbow of hues, and I finally to settled on a bright silver shade to stick with. It looks amazing with my fave coral lip shade- priorities, right? ⠀
Can I be honest with you guys? I just got REALLY, really tired of trying to fit in. ⠀
I wanted to offer high-end and high-touch service to my clients, but I realized that didn’t mean that I had to look like every other awesome planner in the area, I just needed to look like me. ⠀
So this year I’m working to be kinder to myself, which has been the hardest journey for me. I’ve struggled with my body image for years but I’m slowly learning to love my curves. Everyday is a little better, and that’s progress that I’m proud of. ⠀
Shouldn’t we all just have a goal to love ourselves a little more? I think so. ⠀

Going through some of my favorite 2019 weddings this week in preparation for a little website update 🙃 and I rediscovered this gem from Erica and Jack’s wedding in Richmond! We went to the VA State Capitol for all their bridal party portraits and seriously lucked out with those gorgeous blooms lining the stairs!
