ABOUT US

The handsome guy you see beside me is Tony. We've been together for 7 ish years now and he's  the best friend a girl can ask for. He and I have been through everything together and I can't wait to see him at the end of the isle on our wedding day. 

Something kind of cool is the fact that we actually own a wedding videography company called Koa Weddings. We stared it together last year and absolutely love the work. Wedding days are magic. The joy and excitement in the air makes the day feel unlike anything else and we are so thankful to the couples that let us be a part of their moment. Best job ever!

The Proposal 

Tony popped the question while down on one knee on Christmas Eve. I'll never forget how nervous he was and how long it took for the "Holly bleep this is real" feeling to sink in. I mean, after seven years of being together I knew we would get married eventually but had stopped trying to guess when. I was completely caught of guard and it was amazing!

I know you're thinking - WHAT TOOK HIM SO LONG? Well I like to think the answer is simply, love is patient. However, the fact that we 17 when we first met probably had a lot to do with it. Our photographer put it best when he called it our seven lucky years. I couldn't have said it better myself and for the record, it was totally worth it!

Wedding Style  

Since my fiance and I are into film and videography, we are planning a budget friendly, "Old Hollywood Glam" inspired wedding with modern touches. I really don't want it to look to costume-y or theme-y so it's been a process trying to put things together that toe the line. 

As far as color palette goes, since we are considering a fall wedding, we are going with deep burgundy plums, an array of pink and neutral tones, and lots of greenery. I plan to share an inspiration board with you in the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Planning

To be 100% honest, the planning has not been going great so far. Turns out, I am the most indecisive bride EVER! The only thing I know for sure is that I really want to get married and I have my style set. It's the details that give me trouble and turn me into and obsessive, over-thinking mad women. 

I think that's where this blog comes in. I'll be here, every week, working out the details of my big day. I hope you'll join me on this once in a lifetime journey that is my personal wedding planning experience and I'd love to be included in yours too! (Comment below)

Until next week.
