I spent four months living in Ecuador, and if there’s one thing I learned, it’s how to barter, or regatear. No price is fixed in Latin America, and the same goes in most of the wedding world. Don’t just assume that you have to accept whatever price is quoted to you the first time. My […]

What I thought would be an easy task, has turned out to be the ultimate stresser in my wedding planning… I am always one to ‘take the bull by the horns’ so to speak, so I have a hard time waiting on other people to make decisions. I have 5 bridesmaids in my wedding party, […]

Since Jon and I have never planned a wedding before (as most of you probably haven’t!), I had no idea what to ask employees at the different venues we visited. There are all kinds of different things to consider when choosing a venue, and they all can have a big impact on your wedding itself […]

Hello again! Let’s talk venue selection, shall we? Picking the venue was one of the very first things we tackled. We knew what date we wanted to get married on and didn’t want to have to compromise that, so we started the hunt for the perfect venue as soon as possible. I originally just started […]

Finding an awesome venue was extremely high on my priority list; probably #2 in my top three must-haves (after an awesome photographer). After all, the venue sets the tone for the entire wedding, so you’ve got to pick somewhere that fits your personality and that complements the mood you are trying to create. As I […]

I am a planner. Like a hardcore planner – I own a book called How to Pack which is highlighted and dog-eared because I really do use it. Fo’ reals, y’all – I like planning stuff. So, the idea of collecting and organizing inspiration for my wedding was like my own personal wet dream. And […]

I had found our ideal venue… online anyway.  After seeing press from Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert’s engagement party, Front Porch Farms (Charlotte, TN) seemed definitely out of reach, but I thought, “What the heck, I’ll check it out.”  It ended up that the farm was owned by a couple that lived in the main […]
