I love looking through my grandparent’s wedding pictures, seeing them dressed up and with their families. Even in my parents day, we only have a few photos to remember everyone in their early nineties galore- but my parents actually hired a videographer back then, and every few years we watch Steve Young (the football player’s) dad officiate the ring ceremony, see my mom and dad smash cake into each others faces, and all my young and hip aunts and uncles dance on the dance floor. We even have footage of everyone giving them advice. They’ve been married for 25 years this week, and it is still something that they treasure watching. It is incredible seeing these two young kids, skinny and unaware of the 5 kids they’re going to have, making promises to each other. Also, I love seeing my moms wedding dress.

Que your father’s barbershop quartet, serenading the two of you TWICE and singing to you for all to hear. Imagine a choreographed first dance, with you laughing and embracing each other throughout the night. Think midnight snacks and sweet kisses and blue bridesmaid dresses.
Now bring it to life. Because that’s what they did when they planned this wedding.Read More
A lot of people share their WHYS. Why they get started in their business. I thought I would share my WHY NOTS. I had so many reasons why I shouldn't do this.

After I graduated from college, my parents told me that it would be a smart idea if I got my master's degree and began teaching, because that was a much more reliable job than something that I was looking for.Read More
