Shelby and Emma had an Uptown Theater Wedding and I could expect nothing less. It was vibrant, beautiful, and full of love.

These wonderful women and I met under unfortunate circumstances. I don’t want to dwell on it, but they’re one of the big driving forces of my LGBTQ+ vendor list. They’re also why I’m working on a bigger project that I’ll be announcing in 2020.

These two have the biggest hearts and the most theatrical and wonderful backgrounds. All of their friends were so vibrant and loving. They loved to sing, dance and play instruments. It only made sense that these two were married at the Uptown Theater.

There was a sweets table that was a tradition in their family. There were more cookies and cakes than I could count. Shelby and Emma chose to walk down the aisle separately and then walk up to the stage together. They are the best example of “your day, your way.”

While wedding planning, the three of us (plus my husband) became so close. Their love story was so similar to ours) OkCupid for the win! They have fought for their relationship and were able to make their day exactly what they wanted. It was such an inspiration and all I ever want is a couple who is so caught up in each other that they forget we’re taking photos. That is Shelby and Emma.

They can pose themselves, they can show their hearts, and it’s impossible to take a bad photo.

The most sincere thank you goes out to you two for trusting me, being so accommodating, and throwing the wedding of a lifetime. (Also for having an actor groomsman who will make Rent on stage possible for me.)

Uptown Theater Wedding – Hey Lewises!

This post has been brewing and brewing simply because I did not want to jump the gun. My weddings that were all set to occur in the past few months involved me speaking individually to the couples affected. Like much of the midwest, “wedding season” when not counting these summer months, is in the fall. […]

Anyone else feel their ability to “person” correctly dissipate during all of this? I was a blogging fool once upon a time if you can believe it. Now, I’m trying to remember which of my perfect couples I haven’t graced the blog with yet. I immediately stumbled upon Hayley & Bryce. Just waiting in my […]

There’s a pandemic. We all can acknowledge that and move on. Moreover, we all realize the way that it’s changed our day-to-day life and the wedding industry as we know it. Madelyn and Quincy knew they wanted to get married on their 4-year dating anniversary. Luck would have it that in 2020 it was a […]

I have been asked to write this one million times. In fact, I have sat down to do it and then I realize I don’t feel qualified. I still don’t, but for the 1 person I might help? Let’s just try it. There are some unavoidable things in life, but as much as I can […]
