Wedding planning, in many ways, is kind of awesome. You get an excuse to choose a beautiful dress, make countless “inspiration boards” with an infinite palette of colors; plan an awesome party that’s exactly to your taste; sample some delicious food; and, when the day arrives, be surrounded by the love of your friends, your […]

Hello again! So this week, let’s talk about what inspired me when I started creating Matt and I’s wedding. Finding inspiration was probably the easiest part of the planning so far.
