We truly don’t know where life is going to take us. Whether it’s to new adventures or to places that we couldn’t possibly imagine being. But there’s one thing that’s for sure, good friends will always make this journey called life worthwhile. This is truly the case through my recent times as a freelancer. Starting out, I had no clue how I was going to be able to be a freelance designer, would I be able to find work? Would I have the capabilities to look after projects and be smart with my time and money? Will I be able to have money to live! (It was all good! I had savings for this time!) Those were all things that were just coursing through my head, a never ending stream of doubt, questions, concerns. But, having doubt isn’t a sign that you’re not capable, it’s just a product of fear that we can have as human beings that cause us to analyse the situation. So I did what seem like a good idea, which was to reach out to those wiser than me.
What would you do if you had the power to change some stuff?
What’s that one thing that every girl knows and dreams of? It’s common knowledge that every young lady grows up wishfully thinking and dreaming of their ‘big day’. For some the big day may be when they get their first job, graduate from uni, move out of home. However, we would be kidding ourselves if we didn’t define the big day as the “wedding day”.
We’ve personally love love love weddings. We love the different aspects of it, the beautiful flowers, the amazing cakes, the touching photographs, the thought out table decor. We’ve been lucky enough to photograph weddings, make invites, do videography, and it never gets old! What we love the most is that weddings are ultimately a celebration of two people joining in love, life and in holy matrimony. That on that day, it is the opportunity for a couple to get creative in sharing their story and having the best day celebrating their love with their closest and most cherished!
From what we’ve seen, if can be daunting approaching the task of creating that perfect day. From the decor to the clothing, there’s not one detail that can be missed. If there’s one thing that we have learnt from the weddings that we’ve been a part of, is that no one wants to have that cookie cutter wedding where the results are formulatic and has no personal touch. That’s where the Esty Bride Trunk show comes in!
Simply put, there was a variety of gorgeous sellers who were so kind, generous and sweet. They proudly shared their creations and it was so great being able to chat to people who loved weddings and creativity just as much as we do! Did we mention they had an Instagram wreath and the wonderful Mint and Melon Boutique taught us how to make our own floral crowns? Best event ever? Yes!
We love our friends at Etsy and we love what they do!
