'There was 4 feet of snow' I said. Chad quietly told the crowd there were 2 inches.
I have been know to embellish a little but I am a good story teller. Stories after all are what I do.
When I style shoots for gown designers I don't just think about a pretty picture. I want to create a story that allows the bride to see herself in that gown saying 'I do'.
Connecting brands in the wedding industry to their ideal bride will never get old. Knowing that gown or engagement ring is going to play a part in someone's love story is never lost on me.
4 ft is much more exciting than 2 inches everyday

May your To Do list be empty and your bucket list be full!
What is one/two things on your bucket list? Big for me is that I want to go to Brazil and little is dying my hair rose gold. Temporary! 😬
This is one of the iconic Burberry campaigns that raised its profile in the last two decades. With the arrival of Riccardo Tisci we can expect a complete change in the brand image and a whole new set of icons, probably not directly associated with British heritage.

Now, if I could only find something to wear up top today, I would be alright. Photo by Julio team.
What if I fail? Oh darling, but what if you fly??
Nothing seems impossible when we are children. Then we grow up to be questioning doubtful adults. What happened along the way that made us so fearful of flying that paper plane?
I believe in you, let's cheer each other on. There is so much more to my life and I know there is to yours too.
Share a dream below and tag a friend who has always believed in you. And one who needs this reminder today to never quit dreaming.

I remember the exact moment that Chad first told me he loved me.
je t'aime .. te quiero ... eu te amo ... ich liebe dich ... I love you.
For 18 years the feeling has grown and is stronger today than ever before. Each year has come with it's own problems but anything that you nurture is sure to grow.
What are you nurturing today? Calligraphy: @whiteinkcalligraphy | Photo: @morganmariephoto
A woman's emotions can be fluid, sporadic, unrealistic, PMS-leave-me-alone, happy-cry-turned-sad-turned-happy and a mountain of other titles.
Smack. Out of no where comes the emotions of a bride. There should have been a warning with the ring that said 'you are entering the twilight zone, do so at your own risk'.
Serious emotions ya'll. If I said I loved them I'd be lying. But, I do love my brides and walking with them as a trusted friend is a gift I will never take for granted.
And translating those emotions to dad-lingo is what I do best!
Isn't this wallpaper from @dropitmod amazing??
17 years ago when I started this business, there were certainly more than a few obstacles to overcome. And through the years have been many failures.
But here I am, still standing, and laughing at one of my favorite early memories. My car steps from a gorgeous tent ready for a night full of dancing ... with a dead battery.
Remembering, though, keeps me humble. And I have come to realize that I want many more failures than successes.
Sometimes it’s easy to hide behind embarrassments, but I’m proud of what they made me become.

You know moments that take your breath away? That make you thankful for nice people in this world.
@misshayleypaige is for sure one of those people. She took time out of her day to sketch one of her gowns that my bride and friend @annaloykilgus wore.
Something that she will always treasure and keeps me as @misshayleypaige 's biggest fan. The shading and embellishments that are on this are amazing.
Thank you to both Anna for your trust and Hayley for your time.

The storm can seem to last forever. But then God reminds you that it will pass and all will be calm. 🧜🏻♀️

There is plenty in my life that I’m satisfied with, but there’s always more I can strive for. That something might be in my business, my relationships, or my personal growth, and today I want more.
I want more travel, more date nights and more collaborations that take my business to the next level. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know none of this is going to change overnight, but I’m sharing out loud on social media, to give me an extra push into making good on this.
What about you, friend, what do you want more of?
You are the salt to my pepper and my calm in the storm of life. Without you I am not me, I rely on your shoulder to cry on and your arms to hold me tight.
And always your lips to kiss @chadam22.

Yes. You can do it. That dream that you think is for people more talented, more IG followers, better hair.
God put that dream in YOUR heart because it is for you. We all have dreams but only few make them happen.
Be one of the few. Yes you can.
For those who may not know, I’m an editorial/brand stylist and have been happily working in this business for over a decade.
There are probably a million awesome things about what I do, but the single best is continually surprising myself with how much more I am capable of that I never dreamed I could be.
Thank you for being such a huge part of the reason I get to be exactly who I am.
There is nothing I love more than styling for brands to create something breathtaking.
Do you have a new collection that you need to promote? Let me design something worthy of only the best.

Which one's your favourite? Super Model Adriana Sklenaříková a former Guinness record holder for the longest legs among female models, and one of the principle models for Victoria's Secret lingerie womenswear. I had the opportunity of photographing Adriana for a WonderBra Campaign at the height of her modelling career in London’ Soho. The Wonderbar ‘push-up’ design was being developed into a full-range #lingerie fashion label in most parts of the world for this campaign.

79 days into 2018 and at last, it’s the first day of SPRING. I love starting the new season with some serious deep-cleaning and a household re-org
I feel like it sparks my creativity to find myself suddenly surrounded by a whole new aesthetic inside my home and out
And hey, I may just end up loving the fine art of organization
How do you welcome spring?
This is a note to myself as much as it’s a note to anyone. So often I find myself caught up with concerns like how I’m going to meet my income goals by the end of the year or whether I’ll ever fit in my skinny jeans again
And let me tell you: that gets daunting
The truth of THIS moment, though, is I’m sipping fresh brewed tea, and literally nothing about this isn’t awesome
There are so many awesome ‘right nows.’ This is a reminder to spend more time there.
It must be the luck o’ the Irish that this year St. Patty’s falls on a Saturday
This is my HERITAGE, people! My mom is 100%, I'm 50% making Bronson 25%
I have kissed the stone and lived to tell the story
Happy St. Patrick’s day, y’all! Here’s to every rainbow leading you straight to a pot o’ gold!
