Like I literally couldn't audibly speak for the entirety of my wedding day. Who saw that one coming? 

I got to marry my best friend in September 2017. It was amazing and -cue the cliches-  one of the happiest, most exciting days of my life despite the obstacles we didn't expected. However, the planning leading up to it was not easy.

I was excited to plan my wedding but it was so much more work, time and money than I expected.

We had awesome people with good intentions offering different opinions and advice. As a people-pleaser, this really stressed me out because I wanted to make everyone happy. Let me tell you a secret... that's not possible!  

I wanted simple. No drama! To be surrounded by only our closest family and friends as we made things official.

Don't get the wrong idea- our wedding with 200 guests was incredible, joyful and a million other happy adjectives. The best day ever. But a couple times (ok, more than a couple times) along the way, I was ready to throw in the towel and plan a simple and intimate wedding or elopement instead.

Have you been feeling that too? Whether you're planning a wedding for 300 or for 30, it's going to be amazing, and I am so excited for you! I know between absurd costs and deciding on a guest list that you're happy with and doesn't offend anyone, planning your wedding can be stressful.

My promise to my Lumos Couples is to cheer you on every step of the way!

If you're just looking for someone to show up at your wedding, snap some photos and leave, that's not my jam. If you're ready to commit to an amazing experience and photos of your wedding, I can't wait to talk to you!

Hurricane Irma almost stranded my parents in Florida, and we thought they weren't going to make it. Then I woke up on my wedding day to 50% chance of rain and no voice.
