My Favorite 3 Love Songs for Weddings + My Best Tip for Finding More

It was two nights before my wedding when I finally sent my DJ a playlist of songs I wanted. (He hated me, I’m sure.) IT WAS SO HARD TO DECIDE. I picked out the perfect song for when I walked down the aisle (one Tyler liked also), but other than that, I had no clue […]

When Endie first booked me for their wedding, I was still living in South Carolina, and had no idea I would soon be moving to Georgia. It worked out so well though that by the time the wedding rolled around, I was living in Georgia, not too far from where they got married! Splendor Mountain […]
