“Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.”

I love when people send wedding invitations and that feeling you get when you receive some hand delivered mail. I always encourage my couples to have fun with their wedding invites.
I have worked with @palettera_official and @empresspapercrafts and they've created some of the most lovely wedding invites for my couples.
I think it's a beautiful idea to wrap a luxurious ribbon around the invite, or add a some rose petals, a little bit of confetti or sparkles inside the envelope.
Be a little unique and have your own stamps created for your invites. This is the very first glimpse of your wedding for your guests, so you want to set the tone and theme for what they can expect. SWIPE TO THE LEFT FOR INSPIRATION

Honestly, it feels like a dream from this past weekend. I cannot even express how thankful and loved I feel. Not only the proposal but also having the people that have surrounded us, show there love and support for us at a surprise engagement party. Ugh 😭 just amazing. Here are some of the pictures from the amazing @brookeshannonphoto who I thought was just doing a fun photoshoot but was actually in on it the entire time. Thank you to everyone who helped Jonathan put this together, seriously you guys are the champions!!! (SWIPE LEFT)
I recently heard someone give entrepreneurial advice that went something like, "Don't create just for the sake of creating. Ain't nobody got time for that." Yikes. That's a depressing outlook to have. When you were a kid and you felt like drawing a picture, you drew a picture. Not because doing so would benefit you in any material way, but because it made you happy. I hope I never find myself creating for the sole purpose of making money or trying to attain that coveted "hustler" status. Many of my most cherished videos, stories, and photos are ones I created for the sheer joy of it - not for money or recognition. I'm a videographer because I love making digital time capsules of moments that would otherwise be forgotten (whether in my own life or in others' lives). So I'll just be over here, continuing to create for the sake of creating and trying to love the process more than the results.🤘🏻 📸: @danielleschmidty
How lucky do two people have to be in order to fall for each other at exactly the right time in exactly the right way? Well my baby sister @sashayakoub and her soulmate @ohboyitsrobert24 are the perfect example of that luck. ♥️ I’m not the best sister when it comes to wedding planning bc my brain shuts down whenever it comes to anything wedding related (or girly for that matter) but my mom and Rob knew that I’d be the perfect person to turn to in planning the surprise proposal 😂 And so, I suggested Chicago since I was going there for work anyway and Rob and my mom offered Sasha a little weekend getaway to the city as it’s only a 4 hour drive from Michigan. She suggested I meet them there from NYC but I told her I had to head to Zimbabwe for work 😆 (only partly a fib since I’ll be heading there in May but it was totally believable haha!) she was super bummed out but little did she know that I was waiting for them in Chi and that my cousin @nixietrixie would fly out all the way from San Diego to surprise her! I got to work and researched the best and most scenic spots in the city which was not easy as it’s the peak of winter in Chi! But I found this gem of a rooftop and after hundreds of texts messages back and forth between my mom, Nikki and Rob, scheming behind Sasha and numerous moments of heart palpitations, we hid on the rooftop and came out at the perfect time all the while, the most beautiful snow fell upon them! ❄️⛄️💕 Her reaction was PRICELESS! A huge thank you to my dear friend and photographer @jack.wandering for helping me shoot this surprise proposal!! And a big thank you to @ohboyitsrobert24 for loving my sister the way you do. Welcome to the family brother ♥️♥️♥️ More moments in Stories! #nastasiainchicago#howheasked#magical
