We got married on Maui July 1st and it was nearly perfect! I had no idea what I was doing but planned it nearly all myself and even diy’d a few things! I did my own makeup which I felt good about. My friend did my hair which was a blessing! I paid for photography and videography (no video yet). My photographer did good but she captured a lot of weird faces and far away pics so we don’t really have many good ones of us smiling nicely. Also she didn’t get a single shot of the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen! We planned the whole wedding around sunset because I love sunset shots and she didn’t get any :/ but she did capture the day well and the good ones did turn out beautifully. We’re having an at home reception Friday for about 100 people and I’ve done lots of DIY for that. I did schedule another photographer for that day (inexpensive) so I think I’m going to have her shoot a few portraits of us. If anyone has any questions about Maui or Kauai (honeymoon) or at home receptions ask away!oh and my dress was made on etsy (lacemarry) then altered wonderfully by a seamstress. Wedding planning was stressful, I literally had nooo idea what I was doing and very little help outside of the internet! A few things definitely didn’t turn out how they were supposed to but since I did all the planning I was the only one who knew. Also make sure you really have enough time to get ready, my wedding was 530 and we got so rushed toward the end of getting ready. There were some shots I expected to get pre wedding that just didn’t get to happen. Happy planning!!
