My Sister is Getting Married!

  • To Emy on Her Wedding Day

It’s here… today is the day!! It all seems so surreal. I was never the super overbearing, over protective older sister but I always wanted the best for you. I worried when you entered high school that you wouldn’t find true, loyal and faithful friends because I knew there was a shortage of those in our school. When you went to college I prayed everyday that you would find what I had found in college…. amazing, Jesus loving girlfriends…. friends that would love you and accept you and would end up being bridesmaids in your wedding one day…..

This coming August will mark exactly 6 years since I started this crazy business! I honestly can’t believe it’s been THAT long!! When I first started, I didn’t have money to spend on advertising and didn’t have a business plan because I was a college student that was just trying out a dream to see if it would become anything. At first, I had low expectations for my business because I didn’t want to be disappointed when it failed. Who was a kidding? I didn’t have experience in BUSINESS! How was I going to gain an audience and a demand for my services?

  • Wedding Wednesday

return of Wedding Wednesday posts are happening because I feel like a bride again. We’ve spent the last two weeks working on projects, collecting white porcelain platters and writing on chalkboards. My sister’s wedding is in 2 days. AH! And we’re so excited! Now I wouldn’t call be sister’s wedding full fledged DIY… but we did have a few projects that we needed to get done. We have hired my sweet friend and incredibly talented floral designer, Amanda Veronee to make Joe and Emily’s wedding really come together with color! And so we just needed to piece together some accents to carry the theme and add some unique elements to the day.
