Making Your Wedding Day Personal

Let me start by saying… “personal” doesn’t ALWAYS equal creative. I think a lot of people think that if they aren’t creative, they can’t have personal touches. Simply not true! Alternatively, making things personal doesn’t necessarily translate to DIY projects. 100% no.

Step 1: Decide how much time and energy you want to put into creating personal touches into your big day. This is key. Set the boundary and stick to it.

It was one of those meetings where I just “click” with clients. I was immediately enamored by their kindness, I couldn’t wait to begin working with them!
