Wedding Wednesday: Our Wedding

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

I cannot say enough how perfect this day was. We had an intimate outdoor wedding and it was everything we could have imagined. Sean and I had originally been planning on having an outdoor wedding at a local venue, so when things changed due to the pandemic, we were fortunate enough to not have to change too many things about our wedding. With some minor adjustments and a little downsizing, we were still able to celebrate. Weather in Savannah can be so unpredictable, and we were SO lucky to have the perfect weather that day. Also, huge thank you to Izzy and her associate Hannah for these amazing photos. You can check out Izzy's site here:

Sean and I are very low-key people. We wanted our wedding to reflect this. Society seems to place so much pressure on couples having the perfect wedding and it causes people so much ridiculous stress. We decided early on that the only thing that mattered was for us to be together and for the planning process to be fun, no matter what. (This was extra tricky due to the pandemic, but we managed to keep the planning fun the entire time!) We also knew that things could probably go wrong and change last minute, but we wouldn't let that affect the day. Because we went into it with that attitude, the wedding was perfect and we enjoyed every second of it. 

I will have future posts with more details from the wedding!

P.S. Even though we have real wedding bands, we got married with ring pops! Sean proposed with a ring pop, so we thought it would only be fitting. 

Valentine's Day

Thursday, February 11, 2021


I hope you are all as excited as I am for it to be Valentine's Day! I have been a little busy, Sean and I just got married two weeks ago so things are winding down from that. We are waiting until the end of the year to do a honeymoon, but did end up staying overnight in Hilton Head as a mini-honeymoon. Even with how busy we have been, I did want to share some Valentine's Day inspiration with you all. Valentine's Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. 

I don't typically exchange big gifts with people on Valentine's Day. Instead, it is usually little cards, handmade notes, or boxes of chocolates which I think are much more personal. I will probably be going to a local shop, or coffee shop to pick out chocolates as a gift. What are you guys planning for Valentine's Day?
