I'm a Momma!

Big life changes over here! On July 15, 2018 my husband and I welcomed our baby girl into the world, Wesley James DaCosta. While things have definitely been busier at home, I am so thankful to still be working. I truly have never loved my job more than since I became a mom. I did my first wedding when my daughter was 6 weeks old and I remember crying on the way home because I was SO thankful that I get to do what I love while being home during the week with my baby. 

As far as work goes, I will still be booking as many weddings as possible, but might have to cut back on the amount of early morning mountain weddings I do each month. I also have started doing trial runs out of my home! 

I am so excited for 2019, and I am already pretty booked. So please contact me as soon as you have your wedding date! I love what I do, and I can not wait to meet all my 2019 brides.

I have about 50 reasons why I loved this wedding so much. 

  1. During her trial run, we found out we had a lot of mutual friends (including my sister).
  2. She booked my husband as her videographer, as well as some of our closest friends as their photographer. 
  3. She went to the same bible school my husband and I did.
  4. She wore a flower crown & has the best hair ever. 
  5. Her maiden name was Bloom, and so flowers were her wedding theme, (they got married at Hudson Gardens). 

Okay, so maybe not 50 reasons, BUT STILL. I had to share this wedding! Can't wait to share the video! 



Bite Beauty Lip Lab

My husband and I recently traveled to New York this past year and holy cow, I think we fell in love. It was the first time either of us had ever been before (I truly had never even been on the east coast before, other than airports). Whenever we go on vacations, I am the one who does ALL the planning before hand, and then once we get there I get to sit back, relax, and let Christian guide me to each "activity" we have planned for the day. 

One of the things I found while planning the trip was the Bite Beauty Lip Lab. Being obsessed with anything beauty in general, I knew we had to go. How it works is you make an appointment (it only takes about 30 min, unless you're really indecisive), you talk to the gals who work their about what type of color you want, and they mix up a bunch of different samples until you find the perfect color. Then you get to pick out the sheen, and the flavor. I am obsessed with all nude lip colors so I knew I had to go with something along the lines of that. I am truly obsessed with the color, and I wear it all the time. If you are ever in New York, this is a must!
