Forgiveness is a powerful thing. In fact, I believe it’s what will bring our world together more because forgiveness is an act of love that we all need. You see, I made a mistake. A pretty big one… never made this kind of mistake for our business before.

One day during my college years, I wondered why I was there. Academically, it was getting so difficult and the stress was so immense. Then, it hit me that anything in life that’s good; like real good is hard to achieve. It takes time, patience, money, and a lot of relentless effort. In other words, it’s hard work.

Through our business, we get to mete our couples. And through our couples and their weddings, we get to meet other wedding professionals. Other wedding vendors are crucial to how a wedding day will flow for us. Working at a wedding is unique in that sometimes, you don’t know who you will have to work with until the day comes.

Everyone has a story… and that story is what makes them special, unique and valuable. I value Cristabel + Curtis’s story so much. I don’t know every detail and unless you’re in that relationship, you’ll never know it all, but what I do know is this. They have gone through a lot, many decisions and much love through it all.

Ten years…. an entire decade. I remember when we reached this milestone. It was a big deal because it is! I absolutely love celebrating special milestones, and I love people who do the same. You should never just let it pass by. Yes, life does fly by because in our society, we all live our lives too busy.

Some people have a special gift in welcoming and making that person feel like family… They invite you, encourage you, feed you, ask about you… They just know how to simply love someone. It comes so naturally, so genuinely and authentically. Emily and her bridesmaids got ready at her parents’ house and as soon as we entered their home , that’s exactly how they made us feel. Completely and totally welcomed.

Everyone dreams of a perfect wedding… I know I did. I often pictured myself in the most beautiful wedding dress. Don't laugh, but my favorite movie has always been and always will be “Steel Magnolias”. It’s an old 80s movie with Julia Roberts and in that movie, she has the most “pink” wedding.

Words are powerful. It can literally uplift or destroy someone. God created this world with his words… nothing else. In the same way, God gave us the power in our tongues; hence, what we say must be taken seriously. I begin with this because encouraging words is what we received from Consuella + Robert.

If you’re from Atlanta, you know that our nickname is “HOTlanta”, right? This summer so far has been quite unpredictable. A crazy heat wave came upon us in May, and it was quite the heat wave. Records were being broken left and right and it left everyone wondering whatever happened to Spring.
