Doing a little happy dance over at my desk because IT’S FRIDAY, Y’ALL! Now, I’m not 100% sure why I get so excited about Friday these days… after all, I do work weekends and definitely don’t have Monday off for Labor Day, but I just can’t help it! Everyone is ALWAYS so happy on Friday, and it means that I (usually) get to work with a sweet couple the very next day. SO… even though my Friday’s don’t necessary mean the end of the workweek for me, CHEERS to the it being weekend eve!

Ok guys I wish you could feel my excitement through your screen because I am SO excited about this post!! If you know me well, you probably know that I have a bit of an obsession with my small colony of house plants. Caring for my plants has become such a wonderful hobby, and even though I sometimes feel a little bit crazy, having lots of green in my living and working space has done wonders for my mood, anxiety levels and overall well being!

Ahh I am SO excited about today’s post! It actually came as a request from one of my sweet followers, and I thought it was such an amazing idea! I know that being in front of the camera can feel a little uncomfortable at times… I get it! Being photographed by a professional photographer can be a little nerve wracking… you’re dressed up, you’ve made a financial & time investment, and now she’s asking you to kiss and giggle in front of a camera?! Phew… that’s enough to kick in almost anyone’s adrenaline!

Today’s post is for all my fellow vendors! We’ve been at this wedding season for a few months now, and I’m sure we have all become too familiar with the dreaded and inevitable next day wedding vendor “hangover.” Now, before we get too far into this post I need to clarify something: A wedding vendor hangover is NOT a result of drinking too much while on the job! It’s not even a result of drinking!! I have never and will never drink at a wedding that I am working!! OK… now that we are all on the same page, let’s chat about what a wedding vendor hangover really is!
