Southern Weddings Planner Review

  • More than just a Organizational Tool

You may remember our Wedding Collective Giveaway that we launched two months ago. It was an exciting time and we were blown away by the incredible response and support from all areas of the wedding industry. Southern Weddings didn’t think twice about being involved and their support means the world to us. These women work day in and day out to create resources for brides and we were THRILLED when they offered to gift one of their incredible “Southern Weddings” planners to our winning couple!

United in Charleston

  • Folly Beach | A Sweet Reunion

Almost 8 months ago, Ali messaged us. There was talk about our whole accountability/United conference group getting together to reconnect for the week in Charleston, SC. I mean, I LOVE Charleston and so I said ok and then I didn’t think about it. I added it to calendar and it never really crossed my mind! …. Until 2 days before we were supposed to leave! I was scrambling trying to get work done and it just didn’t happen. I threw my clothes into my suitcase and off I went… work undone and blog posts unwritten.


  • Everyone Loves A Good Bow Tie

We absolutely love seeing people launch businesses and pursuing something that they love! We met Craig YEARS ago and he always had a bow tie on. I thought it was just his style but it turns out, they are one of his passions! Craig is multi-talented! Music, teaching, photography and now he’s showing off his ability to run a small business! Craig creates custom bow ties and after my week in Charleston, I’m reminded of just how much I love a good bow tie! They are EVERYWHERE down there! Such southern charm!! So we’re giving one away!!
