I love a beautifully styled tablescape and gorgeous wedding - hey, it’s my job to make that happen!! But...
...this past week, my beau and I have been talking more and more about what our union means to us and our future - how we, as a unit, can combine our strengths to build the future we didn’t think was possible on our own. We got married at City Hall last May, and are now planning and saving for our destination wedding in Sedona, Arizona, this September!
So putting aside tradition, the fact that we love each other, and the fantasy of having a dream wedding, the question we are answering for ourselves is why we are spending thousands and thousands of dollars to make this day so special? What are ALL the things we are celebrating about ourselves as a couple, our union, our lives now, and our future? And how do we honor this in our wedding celebration so that it’s not JUST a visual feast, recitation of vows, and the most expensive dinner party we will ever throw?
It’s so important not to lose track of the “why”s - the things that will truly make a wedding special! It’s also the “why”s that can elevate the wedding design, making the event not just lovely to look at but also undeniably, uniquely yours!
