I’ve always been a travelin’ soul. my whole life i’ve yearned for far off places filled with adventure and possibilities. growing up in central kansas i often felt trapped. i wanted to escape the mundane and run off to see cities like paris or explore rome. in college i got the chance to do just that. i studied abroad in england and traveled all over europe for 6 months.
after college i got married to the love of my life. our first year of marriage we made travel a mega priority and visited over 16 different places together in that year alone. the next year he decided to join the coast guard. our first duty station? hawaii. 🌺
when we moved to oahu last year we bought our very first house together. 🙂 in designing our guest bedroom/my office space, i thought long and hard about what i wanted on the walls. while my adventurous lovin’ soul adores putting photos of our travels up on our walls, something was missing.
not the home we know right now as oahu, hawaii, and not the multitude of future homes we’ll live in cities yet unknown.
but our first original home.
lawrence, kansas 🌻
where we both went to college. where we met and fell in love. where our marriage began. where our church community changed our lives.
you see in getting the opportunity to finally “escape” kansas, as my teenage self would say, i realized that kansas gave me more than i ever knew i needed. it grounded and prepared me for my future. it gave me a loving home with family and friends who mean the world to me. and no matter where we go in the future, no matter what crazy destination god calls us to visit or live, i always want to remember where it all started.
now tell me, where is home for you? and how has it changed you? 🌎🏠 if you wanna make your own custom map of the place that means the most to you you can over at @mapiful! #mapiful

If you have followed @sincerely_annamarie and i for awhile, then you have probably noticed some “sponsored” posts in our feed. your likes, comments and interactions with these posts means so much to us and here is the big reason why! i cannot thank @social_native enough for each and every opportunity they have given us!
garden roses are beautiful and smell amazing, but check out the tulips and mini carnations in this wreath! 😍😍 so pretty and underrated!
this photo is from a shoot at a photography conference that my talented friend @leahhopephotography lead. she takes beautiful photos, check out her insta 😊
As far as friday introductions go... i’d like to talk about “my beeeest fraaaaand” (think of the song and laugh with me). this photo was taken in a season of my life that was almost a surreal dream. i was working weddings almost every weekend and right alongside my best gal pal. pensacola was a lot of emotions for me, the sweet, the frustrating and the growing. i lost friends, i gained friends and true friendships blossomed. i was reminded of this photo of myself just this past week, when i felt “in the dumps” about starting over... in the business world and the “friend-dating” world. but my friend reminded me that i “hustle,” i have joy worth giving and i have a passion for this “job” and that i shouldn’t give up. so i’m grateful for many things right now. for being able to do something i am passionate about and call it a “job.” i am grateful for the opportunity to start fresh no matter how scary it may be. i am so grateful for @mayci_h in my life and always encouraging me, bettering me and pushing me. so hi, my name is callie. i love being a photographer. i love meeting not only “new” people, but people that crave to be relational and be a community together. i like making people happy and sharing my passion. we just moved to north carolina and i am excited. just simply excited for this unknown. let’s do this!
Me, hugging @louiseperryweddings (i think) with other fellow wedding planners in the background. 😍 competition is good but support is even better.☝🏼 over the last 2 weeks i've had support, encouragement or even just lovely banter in one way or another with some amazing colleagues (you know who you are ❤️). some of them are also destination wedding planners, and yet, not one of them is more than a phone call or message away to help you when you lose your balance, have a laugh when you need a distraction, or remind you of why we do what we do.
community over competition, always. it's the only way forward in an industry like ours, where some colleagues want to do it all, where people will undervalue their services by undercharging in order to get that booking, where 'serving only your ideal clients' goes out of the window because "you know, they'll pay me money." > look up to those that do it right.
> look up to those who choose to be themselves and not a copy of others.
> look up to those that are real and transparent, not constantly bigging themselves up.
> look up to those that choose to struggle by focusing on *their* clients rather than everybody else's, knowing that it will pay off in the end.
> look up to those who value their time and services; that know when to say no; that can recognise when others are taking advantage of them; that will do their thing even when blogs and magazines make them feel like they don't belong, because their style is not modern enough, fine art enough, on trend enough.
don't copy them. just observe them and strive to be as authentic and real as them. .
you might not see it now, but it will pay off. always. || 📸 via ukawp.com #ukawp#communityovercompetition#businessadvice#lifeasaweddingplanner

Приблизительно так выглядят ваши букеты до того как я возьму в руки Цветы и они будут вставать каждый на своё место🙌🏻💓
Я уже не раз говорила и ещё раз повторюсь, что создание букета - это как картина маслом, тут нужно прочувствовать сердцем, а потом «писать» применяя основные знания как фундамент👌🏽
Я тоже учу этому девочек, индивидуально, чтобы разложить все по полочкам. Вы научитесь чувствовать в первую очередь.
Любовь к каждому цветочку🌸 это особая медитация, когда разглядываешь каждый лепесток, стебель, листик, веточку, улавливаешь запах🤤
Возьму пару девочек на курс в марте
