Just completed my eighth straight 90+ hour work week! 😳 To celebrate surviving I've booked a 15 day European vacay! Norway, Sweden, and we come! 😬😬😬 (📷 by the amazing: @lauraivanova aka @pieandthesky from a wedding we did together last year! Thanks, Laura for helping inspire me to take action towards my never ending wanderlust!) #workhardplayhard #🇳🇴 #🇸🇪 #🇮🇹

Couples like these two. Families like theirs. Days like this one. Friendors (friend + vendors) like these. It's what makes wedding hangovers oh so worth it. 📷 by: @emilysteffen

It's the end of an era! After many years of spring breaks on Sanibel, this year is likely our last. I'm grateful for many memories of watching sunsets (like this one), searching for shells, bike rides, ice cream for lunch, and dolphin sightings. Excited to see what next year brings! PS-the dip picture? We had to! ☺At this point, it's kind of our thing 💁🏼#sunset #sanibel #smoebergsdosanibel #pixmybrotakes (@beemotwenyfo)

If you need me...I'll be here. 🌴#outofoffice #vacation #sanibelisland

I promise to love you without condition, cherish you without reservation, and forgive you without hesitation.

I promise to relentlessly pursue you, passionately pray for you, and selflessly empower you.

I promise to encourage you with all of my words, love you with all of my heart, and honor you with all of my actions.

I promise to be a woman of compassion, humility, and grace.

I promise to place you before myself and God before us.

I promise to laugh with you, cry with you, and grow with you through all the seasons and adventures of the life we build together.

These vows I pledge to you today and all the days of my life.

When your wedding photographer is in New York and your husband is turning fly to New York to celebrate and take some anniversary photos, of course! Thank you, thank you, thank you @emilysteffen for these amazing images!! And how cute is this little tag @thecurlyquill made for our travels?! Aw, I really do know the best people! ☺️ #newyorkcity #travel

What a weekend. Plan a wedding @campwandawega? ✔️ #bucketlist #check

Hey there, I'm Emily! Most days you can find me with my hair in a top knot, in front of my laptop, gleefully helping couples navigate the crazy journey that is wedding planning over @simplyelegantxo.  I am a forever bride to my hubby Andrew, a BFF to the greatest friends a girl could ever ask for, and a Wedding Planner to the most amazing couples in the Midwest!  I am a lover of Cronuts, love stories, and all things vintage.  I have a special place in my heart for adoption and I believe joy is found in the little things in life. @LaraCasey and @JoannaGaines are my spirt animals.  For me, the definition of "the struggle is real" is trying not to ugly cry at every wedding. My favorite couples are those whose life goals include having a marriage more beautiful than their wedding and I love helping them set that bar high.  When I'm not busy helping couples have the wedding of their dreams, you can catch me creating custom paper goodies with my bestie (@themaking89), Netflixing and cuddling with my hubby, and planning travel adventures to satisfy my wanderlust.  I started this account as a way to photo blog my clumsy transition from a Miss to a Mrs in hopes of connecting with others at this same stage in life!  Where you at ladies!? I'd love to hear from you! 📸: the amazingly talented @emilysteffen #theinstagramlab #themaking89 #aboutme

Just when I'm feeling super lame, I go to an event I think is a bridal fashion show, and turns out to be a modern dance performance in wedding wear. How is this my job?! 💗#toocoolforschool #hdhbridal

What do you do when your surviving flowers from last weekend's wedding match the doughnut your husband brings home to you? Take photos of course. #doughnuts #ranunculus #sprinkles #besthusbandaward

After DIYing a lot of my wedding, my bestie and I decided it was about time we combine her incredible watercoloring abilities and my love for graphic design to create custom paper goodies. So we started a business! ☺️ Check us out @themaking89 and let us create something beautiful for you! ☺️ PS-how cute are these "snips and bits" I just got from @silkandwillow?! #stationery #bestiesfortheresties #smallbusiness

I have to say, a 2 day staycation with my bestie was exactly what I needed to relax as wedding season is in starting to ramp up.  We spent Thursday evening @labmpls learning some mad calligraphy skills from the amazing @hookedcalligraphy (awesome gift from my hubby!) We’ve got some stellar plans for a new business that marries our love of painting (hers) and graphic design (mine). Stay tuned!! PS - can I just say?  The ability to make a @target run with you BFF on a random weeknight is about as great of a simple pleasure as one gets in life?  Come back soon @themakingofahomestead! #bestiesfortheresties #calligraphylab #papergoodies
