a lifestyle, motherhood, & running blog



My then-boyfriend Patrick proposed to me on August 29, 2015 in the botanical gardens at Riverbanks Zoo & Gardens in Columbia, SC. Eleven months later on July 30, 2016, we tied the knot in Columbia, SC.

Here is absolutely everything from the day we got engaged until the moment we left our reception at the very end of our wedding day... all of the details, all of the photographs, and all of the vendors! Plus a little advice for any brides out there :)
