a beautiful mess

L -Nikon / T- iphone

I feel like a mess - and not a very beautiful one. I have a wedding to plan and I can't seem to get a good handle on it. Taylor, the wonderfully creative and level-headed one, is helping me narrow down choices. We collaborated last weekend when she was home and came up with some great ideas... and then she invited me on Pinterest... What a wonderful, although very addicting, way to gather ideas in one place. There are so many creative ideas out there, so many beautiful "real" weddings to look at. They're all picture perfect - with the beautiful brides and handsome grooms - every detail pulled together to perfection. I just don't feel like I can have a wedding like that. I mean I'm in my 50s! Plus we don't want to be frivolous with our money - I'd rather spend money on going on a trip that will create life long memories - and last longer than a 2 hours. Yet I do want something special - I see it in my head .
I want a simple outdoor wedding in the woods - in the autumn of course - with a few friends and family. With ribbon streamers and tiny lights all about. On the surface that sounds easy but then you have to consider SO many things. Like how do you get lights in the woods when you don't have electricity and can't burn candles.....?
I need a wedding planner. Taylor be my wedding planner please.

Maybe a backyard wedding where you can have access to electricity? Don't worry, I know you and Taylor will come up with a wedding that is just right!
