First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage...

Then comes home, family, bills, budgets, business, and the baby carriage!

For years this line has been an untouched part of The Southeastern Bride motto:  "The Southeastern Bride is not only a resource for southern wedding planning, but strives to be a source of inspiration and encouragement from dreaming of marriage on to the legacy of love we leave behind." 

And now, I finally feel, is the right time to move forward in serving women not only in preparing for their wedding day, but also those living out their legacies in marriage, family, home, business, and motherhood as well. 

As this year begins to wind down and as we prepare to start the next fresh and full of opportunity, I want to walk in ways that uphold my own personal purpose in celebrating this life with you; in all of the areas that accompany being a bride, both in the months before and in the years after the ceremony.

By no means am I a lifestyle expert of any kind, but I have learned my way over the past ten years. We have experienced financial devastation, began to figure out life with an autistic daughter and another with her own sensitive soul, started a business, and have created successful routines and rhythms while home-educating and keeping the house kinda sorta clean and organized. Unfortunately, I've yet to figure out anything in the kitchen.

The weddings and inspiration are still available here on the blog and I am still gratefully celebrating the incredibly talented members of the vendor directory. I am simply adding in some new content from a more personal and honest perspective that I hope is encouraging beyond the wedding day.

I am so excited to be moving in a direction that I feel is more suited to my own heart. I love marriage and all that comes with it and am so hopeful that in the future to come you will find content that is encouraging no matter what your stage in wife-life.
