My First Wedding

Throwback to one of the first weddings I ever did.

I had never done a wedding for someone before but always wanted to. Lucky for me, my brother was newly engaged and was willing to be my guinea pig.

I went all in on his wedding. Every detail mattered to me. There were a lot of ups and downs during the process and definitely a few mistakes but I loved every moment of it.

At this time in my life, I was in an emotional funk. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I was choosing between a corporate job, a family, or maybe moving out of the country to hide.

This day, things changed.

At the end of the night as guests were leaving I knew I had to start cleaning up and taking down the décor. I sat there staring at the glowing tables and hanging lights. I didn’t want it to end. I felt like finally, I was doing something I loved. I was truly happy with what I had created and couldn’t imagine going back to a life that felt so empty.

It’s been almost a year since that day and a lot has changed.

I quit my 9-5 job, started a blog, and have slowly been exploring what my passion is.

I don’t know what my next pursuit is or where I’ll end up but I love this new path.

The world is abundant.

For me, this wedding was perfectly imperfect in every way.
