I LOVE Strohm Photography! They are so fun, so fresh, and they update their blog regularly, so I constantly get to see the new photos they’ve been taking. This wedding has pops of red that make it cheerful yet dramatic. I’m especially fond of that candy bar and the flirty fun bridesmaid dresses!

{bride blogger morgan} preparing to be married

Jonathan and I just finished a class offered through our church called Saving Your Marriage Before it Starts. We really enjoyed the class. It was such a great way to talk about all of the topics that come with a marriage such as: finances, fighting the good fight, the gender gap, and what each expects out of a marriage. We put together a mission statement that our church is framing, and it will be on display as the guests walk into our ceremony. If it is not required that you take a similar course, I highly suggest looking into one as it was so valuable for us. It will definitely help kick start our marriage in a positive direction as we have already tackled some of the difficult conversations.

Until next time,
