Wedding Wednesday

It's hard to believe I am starting a Wedding Wednesday series! In so many ways, it's still so surreal that Stephen and I are planning our wedding - but I am most definitely thrilled and on cloud 9 about so many things. I've gotten a lot of questions about our wedding planning thus far, and though there are some things we'll keep to ourselves, there are some details I can't wait to share throughout the next 10 months!

What we've done so far:
  • Picked a date: We are getting married in on August 5th, 2017 - and I can't wait.
  • Asked my bridesmaids: I asked 11 of my sweet friends to be my bridesmaids in our wedding!
  • Picked a photographer: We will be using Kate of Kate Supa Photography and I am thrilled! We have engagement pictures scheduled for next week and I can't wait to see how they turn out.
  • Purchased my wedding shoes: Oh, the shoes. They are simple and classic and exactly what I wanted in a wedding shoe.
  • Purchased my dress: I honestly can't believe I found my wedding dress so soon, but I did! I scheduled two appointments in Wilmington, thought I found a dress at our first stop, but fell in love with my dress at the second - it was the first one I put on at Coastal Knot and as soon as I looked in the mirror, I think my gut knew it was the! I found another dress that I loved, but there was just something special about the one I chose. I honestly can't wait to put it on again and it's hard to believe I only get to wear it for just one day! I got to say yes to the dress with my mom, sister, and two of my best friends.
Some things I can't wait to share:
  • How I asked my bridesmaids and flower girl
  • How we met
  • Engagement photos
  • Color and flower inspiration
  • Helpful planning tools
