It’s technically the loviest week all year, but most of the time, my job feels like one big celebration of love. ❤️❤️ I get to spend my time capturing love in all stages of life and it’s just the best (especially when it’s one of your besties!!). In other news, counting down the days until Taylor + Connor tie the knot!! 🎉🎉
Fact: Flowers are my favorite detail when it comes to weddings. In fact, my wedding was bursting with them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also fact: I went the wholesale route to save some money! I spent $1,000 on flowers total. That number includes hired help for putting all of my arrangements together. To think that I thought that flowers were going to be one of the most expensive parts of our wedding day! All it took was some creative thought!✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you're wanting to go the wholesale route too, here's my advice for you:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-Once you know the location of your wedding, decide exactly where you want your flowers to go. This will give you a general idea of how many flowers you'll need. Remember that your bridesmaid bouquets can double as table centerpieces, too! 😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-Pinterest is key. I found pins of a few bouquets that I loved, highlighted which parts of each bouquet I wanted in my own, and then my florist took it and exceeded every expectation!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-Buy what's in season. Purchasing what's in season means the flowers are more readily available. This also means doing so will likely save you some money. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-If you're local check out Import Flowers Nashville. After having a pretty good idea of what I wanted, my florist and I went here to pick out the flowers that so beautifully catered to my vision! Another great resource to consider is www.bloomsbythebox.com!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-If you're not up for DIYing your bouquets, ask around for someone who would love the opportunity. Chances are, you either know someone who can whip up a beautiful bouquet in no time or you know someone who does. It's all about connections! Don't be afraid to put yourself out there in order to find yours! <3 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Mornings are the best on wedding days.
I love how they start off slow, giggles turn into laughter and coffee turns into champagne 🍾 ✨
It’s in these moments of excitement that we usually take a step back and just let moments breathe, listening and watching for the memories being made.
What do you think Are you a Morning person or not
I love love love this ring box! I ordered one in light pink too! I recommend all my brides order one from Etsy- they’ll totally amp up your detail shots!
