That time I convinced hubby to step out of his comfort zone, leave his comfy 9-5, and resume an active role as partner. Best 👏🏾decision 👏🏾ever! 👏🏾 This was our first photo as business partners ❤️ Sidebar: @ashleyjanephoto was supposed to photoshop my belly but she didn’t want me to be great! 🙄😂

What do I miss most about planning weddings?! This ☝🏾 Being in the moment, on one of the most joyous days of their lives, was so important to us. From distracting with dad jokes, reminders of how beautiful they look, giving shots to settle nerves 🙈, sitting in silence before the start of the ceremony, or handing out big ole hugs (just because) - we’ll forever cherish these intimate moments. 💛❤️

Our entire goal was to get through the handful of events she had on the books, then dissolve it.
But GOD... Little did we know, 6+ years later we’d have over 12,000 square feet of curated goodies and find a true passion for designing events.
Here’s a shot of our first warehouse - it seemed so empty when we first moved in but thanks to dozens of brides trusting us our first year, it filled up quickly. ***The space were in now is becoming too small - can someone find me a new warehouse with exposed brick, natural light, over 20,000 square feet, centrally located in Orlando 🙈
