This summer has been JAM packed. I know I always say that life seems busy and full to the point of overflowing, but this year truly has been so far. In the best way.
I've had a wedding or two almost every single weekend of the year, including the beauties above, photographed by the incredible Robyn Rachel Photography. My brides have all been in the midwest so far this season, with multiple in Michigan, Chicago and Ohio. The rest of the year is looking just as exciting, with many more Chicago brides, one in DC and the one we're looking forward to for about 486 reasons, in Puerto Rico next month.
Meanwhile I've been busy traveling to see Sammy on the road, and have been fortunate enough to go no more than 20 days between visits since Spring Training! It's crazy to think that we're in the home stretch of the season, pun completely intended, and we're trying to remain calm as we anticipate a spot in the playoffs.
Then there's our wedding, which we're getting more and more excited for each time we check something off the list. HUGE shout out to our planner Karen, of Bubbles In Bucktown, who's kept us on schedule and excited throughout this silly process. The details are all coming together and I can't WAIT to dance the night away with our friends and family this January. My shower was last weekend in Michigan and it kind of kicked off the realness of what's happening in my life. My sister and mom hosted the most magical backyard evening complete with champagne punch and sweet rosemary plants in gorgeous rose gold pots for guests to take home. It's overwhelming to be surrounded by all of the women in your life at the same time, and Sammy and I are beside ourselves with how much love we've received.
I've been composing lots of blog posts, and finally feel pretty caught up on a long list of to-do's that's been insanely daunting for a couple months. I'll be back next with a tutorial, and have a cocktail recipe up after that. Thank you for being so patient and continuing to check out the blog even during my absence from it! When you can't find me here, you an always find me on instagram @YourStylistAJ, and snapchat username YourStylistAJ!
