The heat these past few weeks has been πŸ₯΅ With weather like this, adding umbrellas to your outdoor, al fresco wedding reception would be a great touch to help keep the sun away & make your guests more comfortable! β›±πŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈ

What other elements have you seen incorporated into a wedding day that enhances the guest experience?! I for one am particularly excited about an upcoming July wedding that may involve some ice cream! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ¦

My star spangled stud! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ All the fireworks & festivities with the family were super fun, but it's back to business! We wrapped up a wedding rehearsal yesterday and are getting prepped and ready for today's wedding @carnegieinstitution_events!

We love seeing how all the pieces come together on the big day, and watching our couples surrounded by all their family and friends is one of our favorite parts! It's in seeing all the excited smiles and warm embraces that we are constantly reminded of why we do this work -- to help our couples enjoy such an important and life changing moment with the ones they love most. No stress, no worrying about place cards, or decorations or any other logistics. Just simply being present, remaining rooted in the "why" behind it all, and taking in every single second of this special day. Let the countdown to #TigsSaysPerDieu begin! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Sometimes you just need to put your head down and get to work! We spent last weekend retreating away at The Wharf in DC and it was JUST what we needed!

Aishah and I make it a habit to plan a business retreat together at least once or twice a year. After 5 years, Happily Hitched has gone through many transformations, and what we've wanted to do and offer hasn't always stayed the same. But at the root of it all, our passion has always been to prepare couples for marriage, and this weekend was a great time of restablishing our mission -- to create space that inspires people so that they can intentionally build an authentic marriage experience.

We've got lots of ideas and looking forward to sharing more and seeing how they unfold in the rest of 2019 and 2020! And to our husbands, friends, family, clients, fellow vendors and our little ones we're blessed to do life with, thank you for your constant support throughout the years. We're so glad you're part of our story! #nationalsmallbusinessweek

When some sneak peeks of yesterday's wedding slide into your inbox from your couple's amazing photographer...😍😍

Watching Michelle and Austin and the way they love each other is so beautiful. We loved getting to witness the support they offered one another both on their wedding day and all the days leading up to it, the way they shared their faith in God with all their guests, and the way they tended to the little details, like making and personalizing their own soap as favors! They radiate when in the presence of one another. After dating almost 8 years, they made the commitment of a lifetime yesterday, and it was such a special day to be a part of!

Congratulations to the newlyweds! We wish you all the best in your marriage journey ahead. #AustinsGotPooh

Thinking back to Leanna & JK's Fall wedding at Kalero Vineyard. We just received a review from Leanna's mother and it warms our hearts knowing not only our couples, but their families, find value in having us manage all the details of their wedding day. We make it an effort to not only serve our couples, but also mom and dad, grandma, cousins and friends, because when everyone is having a good time and is well taken care of, your wedding day will be one that's unforgettable and full of joy. Cheers to #theescobars! πŸ₯‚

I'm back!! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Maternity leave is officially over and I'm so excited to start reconnecting with vendor friends and getting out and about to see some new venues!

We spent the weekend in VA Beach visiting the in-laws for Jayden's first road trip, and wrapped up the holiday by having baby boy's first photo session with e. losinio photography!!

We're loving these photos Erinne so beautifully captured of our new family and can't wait to see the full gallery!! 😍😍 Special thank you to Finn, the amazing lady behind Blush Away Makeup, LLC, for helping this momma get made up for this shoot! 😘 @ Fairfax, Virginia

Life is better when your girls have your back!
*
This photo of our bride Ali reminds me of how grateful I am for the support system I have in family, friends and some amazing wedding friendors, especially during this time of being on maternity leave.
*
Tomorrow our little guy will be a month old! This journey into motherhood hasn't been easy, but is hands down one of the most rewarding things I will ever get to do in this life. I'll be fully back into the swing of things in a couple weeks, but until then, I'll just be over here enjoying all the baby snuggles!

Yesterday we celebrated five years of owning this dream business! πŸŽ‚ It's morphed and grown over the years, leading us to new places and serving clients in ways we couldn't have imagined when we first started. This journey has stretched us personally and at the same time has kept us rooted in what we believe to be most important -- helping couples experience engagement differently by providing them the space to envision and create their ideal marriage, and putting in the work to make it last.
*
It excites us to meet couples who aren't willing to settle on having a pretty wedding day only. We value the relationships we get to build with our clients because they desire more -- a beautiful wedding day and a marriage that grows even better with time.
*
So here's to five years! πŸ₯‚ It's been an amazing ride and we pray God blesses us with many more years to continue doing what we love πŸ’• | Photo by Jared Ladia Photography @ Airlie

On Wednesday, January 2, 2019 we welcomed the best gift we could have ever asked for during this holiday season.

Jayden James Carter made his entrance into the world weighing 8lb. 4oz. and 21in. long! His birth story is one we're still processing, as we went from an anticipated home water birth with midwives to a hospital transfer and birth by C-section after 5 days of laboring through hard contractions at home.

Through it all, God has truly blessed us and we are excited to now be a family of three! Continued prayers that I make a full recovery and that we would be given the energy to keep up with life with a newborn would be very much appreciated! And to our vendor friends, I'll be on maternity leave until February 15th, so look forward to being more present and connecting again after that time! #BabyCarter #NYEbaby @ Fairfax, Virginia
