Countdown to #Evergreen (Giveaway Closed)

The countdown to our wedding day aka #Evergreen is getting real. I still remember the first day we met. I did not see marriage in our future, but there were special encounters along the way that guided us to this moment.

Our first encounter was so us, authentic and hustle related. We met at Lo'Cal Fashion Magazine's second or third issue photoshoot and the rest is history. Our love story has developed magically over the last 6 the years.

Now that we’ve finally started the planning process, I wanted to document it. I started by looking for inspiration for #Evergreen. Artisan Books sent me this beautiful book to check out and is partnering with me for a giveaway. Keep scrolling to dive into our wedding planning process and to enter to win your very own copy of this book plus an Anthropologie ring dish.
