Our House | Before & Afters

  • The Bathroom

Thursdays are filled with a ton of wedding pictures! Thursdays are always fun and exciting…. but there is no wedding to post this week so I thought to myself “This Thursday is going to be a boring blog day if I don’t think of SOMETHING!”. So, in order to keep today BRIGHT and FUN…..I’m sharing another BEFORE & AFTER post of our home!! This isn’t the most AMAZING room in our house… it’s the BATHROOM. Yea, so don’t get too excited. This is actually a little weird.  Sharing your bathroom with the internet is quite a bold move…. but not as bold as the PAINT COLOR I picked!!! Ha!

Wedding Wednesday

  • Ceremony Lighting

This is such a vital part of your wedding day! I’ve done a Wedding Wednesday about adding professional lighting to your reception and how that will TRANSFORM your event. It was my BEST decision when it came to reception planning! View that post HERE.  However, reception lighting is not the only lighting to consider when you’re planning your big day. It’s often overlooked, but ceremony lighting is crucial! It’s especially important to think about when you’re getting married in a church.There is very little that you can control about the light at an outdoor ceremony.
