YOUR’RE ENGAGED! Pop that champagne! The day has finally come to plan the biggest party you will ever have! Every beautiful emotion has rushed to the surface, and then the ‘oh man, where do I start!’ comes to the surface. There are so many things to consider when bringing this big day to life.
Not in any particular order, cause if you have a vendor or venue that no doubt in your mind you need to have, book them right away! But the first couple steps that I’ve done is the first 5 bullet points.
These are just to get you started. But the sooner you book your dream team of vendors more you will feel relieved and get to enjoy your engagement season of life knowing the big things are taken care of. And knowing they will serve you well during your journey towards becoming Mr and Mrs.
When your day is getting closer it’s time to finalize some things. All vendors have their own ways and should be getting in touch with you in some way. I know for me I reach out to finalize things two months before your wedding via a questionnaire to get some major details of your wedding and to gather up a shot list. This is so I can get the timeline finalized together so you don’t have to worry about a thing on your big day. I love being able to control that part of the day so you can relax and know that your girl can make sure you get down the aisle in time!
Some vendors will even be in contact with through out the whole process. Like your coordinators! I also like to pop in and see how the planning is going and if there is anything I can do to help!
I’m so excited for you and for planning your dream wedding! Trust me I’m doing a happy dance for you! This season of life is so joyful! It shouldn’t be stressful. So don’t handle everything on your own, dedicate some portions of the wedding to your Maid/Matron of Honor/Bridesmaids or even your sister(s) or mom(s). You are in good hands! They want the best for you too and can help you expand your search for your dream team!

“The photos that stand out to me most are the ones of my husband and I dancing the polka at our reception with my 93-year-old grandparents. I feel so fortunate to have had both of them in person at our wedding, let alone up dancing on the dance floor with us, even for a brief time. I still cry when I look at them. They will be so special to us in years to come.”
“Heather knew getting photos with my grandparents
was very important to me, and she delivered!“

“However, what won me and my husband over was our first meeting with her. She was the most bubbly, pleasant, friendly, loving human being. We appreciated her warmth and her attention to detail. She was well-established, a wonderful planner, and she truly wanted us to have the greatest memories.”
“I loved her pictures. It was like love at first sight!”
- OLIVIA B.
“She has such a passion for her couples and capturing their true love story! It shows completely when she is snapping away. Her facial expressions and the gasps she makes when she takes a picture that she loves are just the best! We never had someone get as excited as her when taking pictures! And we love it!”
“Heather truly makes you feel like you are her
favorite couple ever to work with!”
