I'm not a wedding coordinator, but I have been to a few weddings and have seen a lot of things that work, and a lot that don't. And while picking out the perfect shade of pink flowers is important, nothing is more important then planning your schedule. Because, for real, 90% wedding days run late and/or have hiccups along the way. And you'll feel it. Plan for some breathing room, your wedding day will pass by in the blink of an eye, and its most fun to document smiles, not stress!! Plan. Plan. Plan.
Side note: Today's photo was taken at one of my favorite venues to shoot, of one of my favorite brides I've worked with, during a quiet moment when she opened a letter from her love. ❤
Venue: Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island

We are in booking season, and so far our 2018 clients are on top of their game! If you are getting married next year, look good and long through our portfolio. If you love what you see, give us a call so we can get to know each other!!
Happy Wednesday friends, let's make it a good one!

TODAY'S MINDSET: I can, and I will. Because in every successful day that I have, I have to make at least one courageous decision.
ABOUT THE PHOTO: What people never see is exactly what it takes to get a pretty picture. We tromp through weeds, mud, and rocks to chase the pretty light. But when we get results like this, we always forget the ugly because the result is SO DANG PRETTY!! Canon Marklll, zoom lens, f5.6.

Here's to drinking all the coffee, and hustling hard today!
