The best part of an engagement session is really getting time with our couple – learning about their story, how he proposed and seeing the two of them all snuggled up! It is a really sweet time together. For our last engagement session of the 2019 year, Lesley and Drew didn’t hold anything back!! Sweet […]

Towards the beginning of the summer, we were having a catch up meeting with a sweet planner friend, Megan, from Hosea House Collective.

This girl, right here, is a gem. I (Sara) met Maggie after visiting a church in our area, and after becoming members, we’ve slowly started to get to know one another.

Welcome back, bride-to-be! It’s been a little bit since we’ve shared a new article on the Educated Bride series, but we’re back! We’ve been off on vacation (Chicago then Ireland) and now we’re both in the office creating new content for you! Something that our couples ask us is, “can we bring our pet or […]

Now that the news of Sara’s pregnancy is out, we can finally say that this trip was a special one because of it! If you have been around here for a while, you will know that Chicago isn’t a new city for us to travel to. It’s a city close to our hearts as my […]

A few months ago, Michelle and I received an email from Joe from Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique. Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique is an online shop dedicated fully to bridesmaid gifts and in return for a review on the blog, he wanted to send us a free gift. The three gifts that we could choose from are a […]
