Summer Sounds

This year has been the year of following my passions. I used to be SUCH a workaholic. Putting everything else on the back burner in the name of building a business. I’m not sure what changed. My new responsibilities helping out my family… or the fact that this is my 10th year in business (WHAT?!) that has made me realize what is truly most important in life. Yes, my work is important. But more importantly is my family. Relationships I build. Friendships. That is life.

So this year – I’m still a wedding planner. I’m still planning and designing gorgeous weddings. But I’m taking days off. I’m going to the beach. I’m taking bubbles baths more. AND I co-created a mini summer concert series with friends!

Camping in Style This Summer

I love summer. And I am no pro camper… but I’ve really come to love camping. Especially with people that I adore. Last week we went camping in Morro Bay with Joe+Kathrina and it was the BEST. I brought crafts. They took pics. We went surfing and I drank rosè out of a canteen. There is no cocktail recipe, no DIY tutorial, no fancy wedding dresses. Just friends, camping, enjoying life. This is more for me, to document life and remember my favorite moments. If you hate it, sorry not sorry. If you love it, I hope it inspires you to take a couple days off. Disconnect. And spend time with people you love.

A Day In The Life

Hey guys. I’m Emilee! This post is all about my life as a wedding planner! The number one question/comment I get once I tell people what I do for a living is: “Oh! So cool. Like JLo?!” My first reaction is like, “ew, no- I’m way more fun and hello… I don’t steal my client’s fiancès. Duh”  But then, I have to realize: 1) People don’t really remember that part in that movie and 2) Most people don’t actually know what a wedding planner/wedding coordinator is slash does all day. So, thanks to my recent partnership with JORD, wood watches, I’m here to tell you all about what a typical day looks like for me!

I Left My Heart In Thailand

This past November, I had to opportunity to go to Thailand with the hubs and our dear friends over at Joe+Kathrina. It was a little bit of a weird time to take a trip for us. Last year was a really hard year. But we went anyways, and I’m so glad we did. In the end, it turned out to be the perfect time to get away, share an adventure with friends, and cross some items off our bucket list. A time to reconnect. Just what we needed.

Camp Emilee :: On Turning 30

On Feb 21st, 1987 sometime in the middle of afternoon, I was born in Anaheim California. I know it was midday because my whole life I’ve been told the story about how my mom went into labor while my Grandpa was at Home Depot (his favorite place in the world) and when he heard the news, his response was, “no baby is ever born in the middle of the day.” Basically stating that he was in no rush to leave his excursion. Because, you know, babies always come at like 3 in the morning haha. So, naturally, always wanting to prove someone wrong – even at the early age of unborn, I came in the middle of the day.
