I had so much fun Jessica’s bridal session at the Milestone Aubrey. It was a perfectly overcast day with a nice breeze that kept us cool as we walked around the beautiful property of The Milestone.
Jessica is the absolute sweetest and I cannot believe she is finally a married woman! I am so happy for her and Austin. I know planning your wedding in the mist of a global pandemic is no easy task but Jessica did an amazing job!
Jessica and Austin, I am honored to have been a part of your wedding story. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell your love story…I have loved getting to know you guys!
Here are a few of my favorite images from her gorgeous Bridal Session at The Milestone Aubrey! You have no idea how hard it was to sit on these and not show the world until after the wedding! Please enjoy!
Advice from the Bride
What was your Wedding Planning Experience like? How did you feel, how did you handle any stress? Was it easier or more difficult than you first thought?
We had an 11-month engagement. That gave me just enough time to have a stress free planning process in terms of deadlines and how quickly things needed to get done. Any time I feel stressed, I remind myself that it is only one day, and the real reason this day is so important is because I am marrying my best friend!!! Once I came to that realization, it made the whole process much more enjoyable. Planning was a cakewalk until we started getting into the nitty-gritty of expenses…you can daydream all day long, but if it’s not in the budget, cut it out! That was the only flaw to constantly eyeballing Pinterest…you might love what someone else did at their wedding, but you might have half of their budget. That can be a hard pill to swallow! Once I accepted that every bride has a different budget, the process became more exciting!
Advice to Brides who are currently planning their Weddings?
Don’t let the little things psych you out! In the beginning, I was being so anal about linen fabric, appetizers, and how to entertain people during happy hour. I was putting too much thought into the things that nobody will remember! You have to remember that your guests are there to celebrate you and your new spouse! They won’t remember what color your custom koozies are, or what color your table napkins are…promise!
