Our Biggest Little Wedding Day

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been two years since Chris and I did the unthinkable. Without telling our parents or even our friends, we woke up on January 8th, 2015, and decided to go get MARRIED!

What a year it’s been! When looking back on all the gorgeous memories I’ve been so fortunate to collect, I can’t help but think how truly blessed I am.  Chris and I moved cross-country to Nevada last December, and I didn’t know a single soul. I had no idea how I was going to get business up and running with no clients, and no referrals.
