 It’s definitely true when they say your wedding day is a blur, and I’m so thankful for these images captured by Mike Moon! My Aunt did a beautiful job on the florals, and I’m spoiled with love from my family and friends who helped get all the detailed together while I got to enjoy the day with my Mom and bridesmaids. Thank you to everyone who celebrated our day, especially my Mom and Dad who did everything they could to make our day a fairytale.  I plan to share a little more of the detailed shots later, but I wanted to link everything I can here so it’s all in one place!

We picked Little River Farms for our venue because driving though Milton always gives me such peace. My mother grew up just two streets over and had her wedding reception at her childhood home, so it felt like the perfect place for us. Not to mention, I was in love with all the natural light throughout the house and the southern touches without screaming country. I knew I wanted a southern theme, but I didn’t want to scare Tim’s Pennsylvania family away on their first night as family 😉

A funny story from the morning of the wedding… I managed to lock my keys in my car with my dress in the trunk! I got to my parent’s house with Chick-fil-a biscuits (#shedforthewed) and I guess I was so excited to bite into one that I left the keys inside! I had to laugh it off, and luckily there was plenty of time to go back to our townhouse and get my spare set.

    How beautiful!! I'm getting married this September, and have completely fallen in love with the getting ready robe you wore so fabulously here and need it for my wedding morning. Question though – due to the sheer back, were you able to wear undergarments or a slip underneath? I don't want to take away from the beauty of the robe, but also don't want any mistaken flashing to occur! I hope you don't mind my asking 🙂

    • I wore sticky boobs and ivory hanky pankies, but nude would probably be better 🙂 You could also try a nude slip underneath if it matches your skin color well. I purchased the matching lingerie but it didn't work underneath. Congratulations by the way!

      Good idea! However I'm nearly as pale as you and typically have to really search for the correct nude color, lol #palegirlproblems

      Thanks so much, this is very helpful info!

  • I haven’t stopped listening to Taylor Swift since the concert on Friday. It was seriously the best concert I’ve ever been to! Sorry BSB and Britney 🤷🏼‍♀️ If she’s coming to your city I can’t recommend #reputationtour enough! Have you been yet??

Wearing my go to basic tee and these stretchy and comfy pink shorts from Zara! They’re not on LIKEtoKNOW.it so I can’t link the shorts but DM me if you want the link! My earrings were from a #fabfitfun box. Linking a similar look and my favorite basic tee at the link in my bio or swipe up in stories 💕.

  • My heart is so full and inspired after #TBScon and a weekend with new friends! So glad I got to meet this pretty lady  @lauren_holifield - don’t miss her stories while she’s renovating her parents house. It’s going to be farmhouse goals!

A big thank you to @joulesclothing for gifting me this gorgeous dress. I’m so glad I was introduced to their bright and colorful pieces and I’m officially obsessed💕 And thank you @ballcanning and @lacroixwater for the cutest #bloggerbrunch at @hotelatavalon | #tbscon #atlantablogger #theblogsocieties #cultivatingcommunity #hotelatavalon #lacroix #ballcanning #joulesclothing
  • Its worth getting up at 4:45 this morning when you get to eat breakfast twice 🙌🏼 It’s been a whirlwind Friday between #tbscon and #taylorswiftreputation tonight and I am loving every second 💕 Anyone else going to the Reputation tour?? I can’t wait to see me some T A Y L O R.

Click the link in my bio to shop this look. My top is only $16 and I’m wearing Valentino dupes🍓Happy Friday friends!  #liketkit http://liketk.it/2wUX5 @liketoknow.it
  • I challenge you to buy something way out of your comfort zone every now and then because you never know what may surprise you! This olive cropped jumpsuit was my surprise this week. Tim was even a fan and I thought he would hate it! He described it as “elegant but bossy” 🤣 Like this photo if you think he should narrate my next try on haul. Also, I have a lot of new faces around here so I just wanted to say a quick hello to my new friends👋🏼💕.

Coming to my YouTube channel this Sunday is an @oldnavy try on haul. I found so many cute basics for fall that are a heck of a lot better deal than the nsale 😜. I normally size down in Old Navy but I wanted the top to fold over the not so cute waistband.  I’m wearing a small for size reference.

My heels are a Valentino dupe from @amazonfashion and look just like the real deal! I linked the exact outfit on the shop page of my blog.

  • Is it possible to be impulsive but also an over analyzer? Because I feel like I am somehow! If I finally decide I need/want something, it has to get done right away. If my mind is on a project, I won’t take a break to eat until it’s done. If I’m on a health kick it’s all or nothing. If I’m craving cookies, I will slip on my flip flops and head to the store.

Last week I started shopping for a new blog design, and this weekend I made it happen! I’ve sat at my desk since 10am yesterday tweaking every little detail, and it was so worth the task. Take a peek at the new site and let me know what you think! The features look best on a desktop, but it is mobile friendly, too.
