Reese’s Eggs are exponentially better than the originals…and dare I say even the Valentines and Christmas shapes, too? –> Pretty sure Dill had two and I had about nine. After months of back and forth to Chicago, D and I decided to spend our first Easter together here in Wisconsin. We love our families to […]

I cannot, for a second, believe that these beautiful photos are ours for the keeping. Our photographer, Mike Williams, executed one the most important aspects of our wedding…the images speak for themselves. As I’ve said before, photos were a top priority; they’re one of our love languages.  For the best day of our lives, we wanted […]

By far, one of our best decisions was taking day after pictures.  We knew with a December wedding, we would be racing the sun to capture outdoor pictures in the daylight, especially without the luxury of a first look (I went old school with this one!  Didn’t see Dill until I walked down the aisle!) […]

Nothing says “I love you” like some good reads right?! No, seriously.  I think books are the gifts that keep on giving.  This year I decided to gift Dillon (and myself) some new reading material for Valentine’s Day! Since we’ve been working on a journal for our marriage, I’ve been wanting to find some books […]

Before the wedding, I read so many wedding articles and blogs about the dreaded gap.  That time between the ceremony and reception. Today, most people advise against having a long gap.  I totally get it.  As a guest, it is tough to have down time in between.  Do I wear the same outfit? Do I […]

Planning big ticket items like venues and transportation all seem to be super easy to book and plan- call it in, reserve the date, bada bing.  The nitty gritty wedding planning comes down to details.  It is all those little things that drive you crazy. But, they are so dang essential.  We had so many […]

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know there are endless blog posts and pins all about wedding hacks, but I felt like we owed it to ourselves to write down the things that made the process easier.  No wedding planner, no coordinator.  We survived and we were able to actually enjoy our day- it’s possible! Here are […]

After our fantastic bridal showers, we were finally able to transfer in all of our new kitchen tools and supplies!  It was time for our hodgepodge college sets to move on and out of our lives. I had been slightly overwhelmed and inspired my so much of our new things.  Should I make fajitas in our […]

There is no question that the farmers’ market might be one of my favorite parts about living in Madison.  This time of year, the bold colored blooms and fresh pressed apple cider were our go-to purchases. We woke up to overcast skies and packed the camera and our market bag for a crisp fall morning. I know […]
