We are in the thick of wedding season! It feels hard to believe that this time last year we were at home on lock down, wondering when the events industry would open back up. And now, weddings have come roaring back!

Now that our Spring weddings are done, we're doing all the prep work to wrap up details for our Summer couples! Today you'll find me glued to my computer as I hunt for all the decor, tackle my inbox and review lots of contracts (all while masterfully hiding from my children 😂)

As we continue to focus on serving our couples during this very busy season, we've made the decision to intentionally step back from social media. Our account will be pretty quiet for a while as we dedicate every minute to gearing up for our upcoming weddings (and plan for 2022!).

Put my head down 2 weeks ago to focus in on final details for our two May weddings, popped my head back up and somehow it's almost June?! 🙈 The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of timelines and floor plans, vendor detail confirmations, and a whole lot of THIS! 👆🏼

Friends raising a glass to the beauty and excitement of marriage, endless tears as our couples were finally able to make the commitment of a lifetime surrounded by family and friends, some that they hadn't seen in over a year. And lots and lots of laughter.

The best part? We got to see the smiles.

Having fully vaccinated guests be able to celebrate without masks, without social distancing was just the best thing to witness. I've missed that so much. This moment has been long awaited! This has been the light at the end of the tunnel we've all been waiting for and we can't wait for more of our couples to experience the joy of being able to hug, kiss and celebrate again! 🥂

Heads down and keeping things moving! That's where you'll find me for the next few weeks!

We're down to the wire with just a few days left to go before our wedding season kicks off. I've been impatiently waiting for this time to celebrate again and I'll be wrapping up all the logistic details for our two May couples + finalizing design and decor plans for weddings this summer!

So if the postings look a little sparse for a while, don't worry, we're still here! Just working away to serve our couples and give them our full attention!

It's our anniversary!!! Four years behind us and prayerfully twirling into many more. ✨

So much has happened in the span of four years. We bought our first home, got married, had two beautiful boys and endured a pandemic. We've been challenged, and our relationship tested. There's always something new to learn -- about ourselves, and each other, and I'm grateful for the patience and room to grow to become better versions of ourselves.

Thankful to be on this journey with my best friend! Every day really is a new adventure. Here's to us and our future together! 🥂

This weather has me dreaming about warm summer days with outdoor cocktail hours! There's nothing like hearing the sound of laughter while watching friends and family enjoy time together on wedding days.

How often is it that you have all your favorite people under the same roof at the same time?! These are the moments we live for -- helping you to create memories you'll cherish forever. 🙌🏼

Getting creative with putting a fun play on words is probably one of my favorite ways to add more personalization and meaning into a couple's wedding planning. It's such a small detail, but can have a huge impact and leave your guests feeling like your wedding day fit you as a couple perfectly!

The idea for this sign was inspired by the venue location, Mt. Defiance Cider Barn in Middleburg, VA. They produce cider on-site, and for a couple that loved spending weekends drinking cider, it was the perfect way to incorporate both something they love and a nod to the wedding location.

Love how the Bubbles and Brews mobile bar can add customized signage like this for couples. Such a great way to enhance the guest experience!

10/10 would recommend doing this ONE thing immediately after your wedding ceremony!

Before you rush off to take more photos or mingle with your guests during cocktail hour, take a few minutes to be alone, just the two of you, and have a private moment together.

Emotions run high on wedding days, and after making things official, it's so nice to be able to sit and reflect on the commitment you just made to each other and embrace all that comes with that moment! Happy tears, snotty noses...you get the point. 😉

So think ahead about where in your venue you could duck into a private room after the ceremony! Don't feel pressured to move on to the next event of the day too quickly. Your guests can wait a few minutes to see you! This is a moment you'll cherish forever. 💗

Intro time! We're Christina & Aishah, the duo who started Happily Hitched! We met in college while at James Madison University and have been best friends ever since!

When we sought out to create Happily Hitched, we actually first started as a blog to help dating, engaged and newlywed women prepare for marriage. We saw just how many hours upon hours went into planning for the wedding day, but relatively few hours were spent preparing for the marriage. (If you're in the midst of planning your wedding right now, you know it can be like another full time job!) 😆

Today, Aishah serves as our Marriage Coach, helping all of our couples think about and plan for their future marriage, and Christina is one of our four Lead Planners working to plan intentional and meaningful wedding celebrations.

For couples who work with us, this means you get a team who not only helps you with your wedding day, but who helps you prepare for ALL of your days together as a couple beyond the wedding day too! ✨

Interested in learning more about our approach?! Send us a DM!

Doing a little Sunday planning? Let's talk color palettes! Inspiration is everywhere, and a fun way to pick colors for your wedding design is to find a picture where you love the colors and use something like the Pantone Connect app to extract the colors from the image!

We especially love seeing how florals can be used to tell the color story of the day.

Tell us how you chose your wedding colors! Did you base your colors on what was trending, colors you felt fit the season well or were personal favorites?
