Despite the New England coastal winds and gray December day, they were all smiles during their engagement session at Walnut Beach in Milford, Connecticut! We started off at the Connecticut Audubon Society, where James asked Jasmine out on a date over eight years ago. After a quick outfit change, we traveled down the road to Walnut Beach for the remainder of their session, where we even caught a bit of the sunset!Read More
I am SO excited to have Amanda and Heath's sweet summer engagement session featured on Reverie Gallery today! We met at the very end of August in Rowayton, Connecticut on a hot summer evening. I loved teaming up with Westchester, NY event planner and stylist Kate & Co. Events, who not only put together a beautiful picnic for Amanda and Heath, but also styled Amanda's outfits and the floral arrangements!Read More
CONGRATULATIONS! You're engaged! December is not only my favorite time of year because of the holiday season, but also because it's the busiest time of year for romantic proposals.
So now you have a ring on your finger, but what's the next step? Where do you start with wedding planning? I'm sure you've spent at least a little time looking for some wedding inspiration, whether it be in bridal magazines or on Pinterest. Before you start taking venue tours, or choosing your bridal party, you need to take care of the most important part of business first: figure out your budget. This was my least favorite part of the process, but I was definitely happy to get it out of the way earlier rather than let it linger over my head for too long! It might be an uncomfortable subject for some, especially if your parents are chipping in to help pay for the wedding. Having that conversation is essential to the rest of the wedding planning process. Discuss who's paying for what, and how much you have to spend on each aspect of your wedding. Once this is done, then you can dive into all of the exciting parts of wedding planning!
Next week, I'll be starting my Wedding Wednesday blog posts, which will give all kinds of advice for wedding planning, wedding inspiration, tips for brides and more!
Until then, happy planning!
