Let me just start out by saying how grateful I am to each and every one of my clients and friends who supported me this year. Starting my company over again in Wilmington has not been an easy accomplishment, starting from scratch in a town where I knew no one. Now I can say that I’ve met and worked with some incredible local vendors in the industry, and luckily I can call a few of those my friends. Not only have I worked with amazing teams to make wedding dreams come true, but I’ve also had the absolute best clients. I know I say this all the time, but I would not keep saying it if it wasn’t so true. They say if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. There has never been a sentence so true. My job has introduced me to clients that have turned into some of my closest friends in Wilmington, it has lead me to destination weddings that take me out of the country to beautiful places like St. Lucia, it has provided me with a reason to travel even more than I do normally. It brings me to fun projects like making a calendar of attractive men and beautiful dogs, it has introduced me to local businesses that I wouldn’t have noticed before, and it lets me get out all of my creative fixes. People judge you when they hear that you went to school for fine art, but I’m here to tell you that I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and it’s all because of the opportunities that being an artist gave me.

I’ve compiled a group of some of my favorite images, moments, and experiences from 2018, and I wanted to share that with you guys. If you have any recently engaged friends, please send them my way for 2019 and 2020 weddings!

Thank you to everyone who made it such a great year, and I cannot wait to see what 2019 brings.
