QUESTION TO WEDDING DESIGNERS: What is your favorite floor plan software? Okay, so here's a little secret I have...probably my least favorite thing to do as a wedding planner is creating a floor plan. I am working on three different floor plans right now and my brain feels numb πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ It is one of those necessary tasks that must be done though! I know it must seem like what we do in the wedding industry looks so glamorous (and sometimes it is!), but many days it is literally me on my laptop organizing a million details and trying to keep them all straight. I do LOVE what I do and I love having the unique opportunity to help couples do these super mundane things so they don't have to πŸ‘Œ Consider your floor plan like a BIG HUG from your wedding planner to you πŸ’•πŸ’–πŸ€— #weddingplannerlove
I've been traveling for several days for wedding meetings and things. So happy about everything that's been accomplished πŸ€— Big shout out to my awesome team of vendors that pulled off a styled shoot yesterday at a new venue in Central Arkansas called @stonebrookmeadowsar that I'm sure couples are going to LOVE πŸ’• BIG THANK YOU to my associate planner @kaitie21 for doing me a HUGE favor yesterday and helping with the shoot...and nailed it!! β€’
β€’
β€’Party bonus: Finally got to meet my adorable client, @candacegilbert21 at her venue @thegranduerhouse and am just swooning over all the lovely things we have in place for her wedding so far. Back home and ready for more planning and creative meandering for upcoming projects! It's a wonderful life πŸŽˆπŸŽ€
Happy Saturday! A little beauty to make it brighter πŸ’ŽπŸŒΈ β€’

My little labor of ❀ is finally finished! I've been wanting to switch platforms from Godaddy to @squarespace for a while now. It's just such a task to get all that content moved and I put it off for too long. (I may or may not have not showered for three days from zoning out on this project πŸ€£πŸ˜ƒ) I am thrilled at the final result and it was totally worth it! There's some new stuff on the blog and more to come! My weddings and my couples give me great ideas for blog posts. Instead of blogging real weddings (which you can see on my Gallery page anyway), I'm going to start blogging things that engaged couples ask me about...true insider information! We all love to look at pretty things, but I find my clients want to pick my brain about logistics more than anything else. Of course, I'll be blogging about pretty design elements, too but I'll be mixing it up with content that's hard to find the answers to without asking an expert. Let me know in the comments what YOU want me to write about next!

Celebrating #nationalicecreamday 🍨🍧🍦 The BEST holiday EVER!!
Happy Monday! I know how hard it is to get back to work on Mondays, but this one trick helped me view Mondays TOTALLY differently: β€’ β€’
β€’ While making your weekly "To Do List" (whether physically or in your head) be sure to include down time for yourself. It's OK to NOT pack your calendar full - in fact it's soooOOOooo liberating once you realize the idea of "busy" is such a facade we have all been fed. Nobody can do it all and then proceed to do any one task very well. Stretching yourself thin does not increase productivity - in fact, it's exactly the opposite. Be sure to take time for yourself this week. #livewell

Sometimes less is more. Never underestimate the power of simplicity in the design of your wedding and focus more on a fabulous location, delicious food and entertainment. The outcome can be truly epic. Also speaking of good food, I highly recommend The Peabody's patisserie for your cake...delish 🍰 ❀
