The rain didn’t stop this couple from having their dreamy destination wedding! Rebecca and Ryan had friends and family from all over the country and out of the country to come celebrate with them on their big day. The best couple and vendors made for the best day!!

Is the wedding budget KILLING you???
Figuring out where to put the money can be DRAINING.

Happy Matrimony Monday... today I’m sharing budget facts that could make you feel better about your own.
Couples budget, on average, around $23,000 for their wedding but end up spending around $30,000, with more than half of all couples increasing their projected spending during the planning process according to Wedding Wire's 2020 Newlywed Report.

The average amount spent on a bridal gown is $800.

During the engagement period, couples buy: $4 billion in furniture, $3 billion in house wares, $400 million in tableware, $19 billion is spent buying presents at wedding gift registries....WOWZA REGISTRIES!!
Feel better yet???

Being in the wedding industry for over 22 years (since I was 14!) I have been so honored to help many sweet couples from around the world prepare for their big day. However, I have never been so humbled and excited to help two of my most favorite people in the world prepare for their big day at my family's venue.

One of my favorite parts of the planning was Brittany agreeing to a thrift store wedding dress bachelorette party!! Anyone that knows me, knows that I love dressing up and making a fabulous fool of myself. We had such a wonderful team of gals come together to celebrate our girl! And props to Autumn Rogers and my niece Ellie Gebel for helping us girls wrangle the 25 point bustle! 😅

Brittany and I have shared tears, honest conversation, but most of all SO much laughter and silliness over the last 8 years, and I can't wait for my husband Casey and I to grow old with Brittany and Matt.

Congratulations my sweet, beautiful friend. I'm honored to be a part of this chapter of life with you. ❤

XOXO- Natalie McGuire Gibbs

Bridal sessions are a great way to save time and stress on your wedding day…not to mention you get to give your dress a test run before the big day🙈 Doesn't Brittany McRae look gorgeous!?
Did you know that bridal sessions are available for free for our booked brides? Just schedule a time that works for us and your photographer on the day that you do your hair and make up trial!

As much as we hate rainy days like this, isn’t there something so romantic about the rain? Yes, most of the time I’m running as fast as I can, making the ugliest face possible... But in my head I'd like to envision that I’m wearing a gorgeous flowy dress and making out with my husband under a street light.

If it rains on your wedding day, you can actually make those dreamy moments a reality! This is why it is important have a venue with a backup plan and covered areas for pictures, as well as choosing the right photographer to capture your day perfectly, regardless of the weather! Check out these gorgeous rainy day wedding pics by Weddings by Bluesky

I would love the opportunity to help you create gorgeous pictures and lifelong memories for your big day!



PS. Brynn and Austin Neiheiser, miss you guys! Your wedding was so special to my family and I!


Happy Valentines Day! ❤️🌹🤍
We hope you were able to spend some time with friends, family or a special someone this weekend!
And chocolate... lotsss of chocolate 🍫💝

Looking for a more adventurous location for your engagement photos or intimate wedding ceremony?

This October, we went exploring on the farm with our dear friend and fellow wedding professional, Nathan Baerreis Photography, to capture some pictures of several new primitive wedding site options that we will be offering in the near future! These beautiful spaces are unimproved, but are pretty gorgeous as-is. You can get away and be in the middle of nature, but still have access to all of the amenities that McGuire's has to offer!
