So Happi Together Favorite Details from 2010

Friday, January 7, 2011

It has been a busy, fabulous and completely thrilling year for So Happi Together. I have met so many genuinely talented and interesting people (vendors, bloggers, brides and grooms!) who have each impacted my life in unspeakable ways.

It has not always been easy, but I honestly feel that I am a better person for this past year.  It has been a year of trial and error, taking leaps of faith, not always succeeding, but always picking myself up, learning and trying again, only better. Most importantly, I did not do any of it alone. I have the most amazing support group of family and friends. People who believe in me, pray for me and work with me, even through long nights of crafting or crying. Yes. There have been tears, but we always remain hopeful and positive. And being in this industry, it is easy to do so with so much beauty around us at all times. I consider myself truly blessed to work with people during one of the most special, memorable and love-filled periods of their lives. Every wedding amazes me and I am still brought to tears during each ceremony and first dance (seriously, without fail!). So, I thought I would take a moment to share some of the beauty that I have been inspired by this past year. You know I am a complete sucker for details and these are some of my favorite details that we have been lucky enough to be a part of this past year. I am still waiting for images from some of our weddings, so this is just a small sampling of our work this past year, but I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Which brings me to one of the most exciting details of 2011 - working with my husband and Up Imagery on weddings and shoots. We are so blessed to work together in the same industry and offer special packages to bride and grooms who book both of us for their special day. Because, quite frankly, we are in love and love to work together! :) Give either of us a shout if you would like to learn more!

Here's to another fabulous year filled with amazing details and love. I hope we can all take the time to recognize both in our lives, everyday. xoxo!!
