Y'all.... these past few weeks have been crazy banana pants and I would not have it any other way!!!!!! But.... that means our blogging has been seriously slacking. And while I would love to sit here and write a well thought out knee-jerking hilarious post like I always do, I just really don't have the time because my e-mail inbox is full, the piles of flower proposals I'm working on is high, and the to-do list feels never ending (again, in a really really really good way.) So instead of sharing a fabulous post with you all, I'm just going to share sneak peeks of the I&B happenings around the shop, the shoots that we have yet to share with y'all, the weddings we also have yet to share with y'all, the dresses coming soon and the fact that we will be carrying bridesmaids for the first time ever in like 2 weeks.... !!!!!!! OH, and we haven't even mentioned on our blog our newest bridal designer................ So... I guess that means we are now hiring an official blogger?!!?!?!?! 

That one time we got to cross something off our bucket list when we got to lend not 1 but 3 wedding dresses to Hey Gorgeous Events for her Trouvaille Workshop. I have admired Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous Events since I started wedding planning and so it was literally a dream come true to be involved in this!!! We also just got all the images from Nancy Ray and they are beautiful featuring the Anna Campbell dress above, a Sarah Seven and one of our Ti Adora dresses. Eeek!

One of my favorite shoots we have ever done was at a music studio and so of course we named it Stairway to Matrimony. Can't wait to share more from this fun one - also features our Blush by Hayley Paige gown! Photography: Mackensey Alexander

Ember & Adam's magical wedding at Dunham Farms was so seriously dreamy. Mackensey Alexander captured this wedding and I didn't even know it was possible but she made it look even more magical. Spanish oaks, moss, a plantation, so much gorgeousness and the sweetest couple!

I can't even describe in this little box I have to write in how sweet and adorable Xiao & Hang were. So in love... so so so in love. So sweet. I just could (& will) go on about these guys!!!! We helped plan their wedding in a little less than 2.5 months and despite the torrential downpour that happened on their wedding day it was still seriously the sweetest ever!! Can't wait to show y'all more from Apt B Photography

When a bride rocks a pink polka dot dress you just know their wedding is going to be the cutest most fun wedding you've ever seen. Plus they did their first look with their dogs AND she wore Harry Potter Toms... Yup. These guys were fun and more rad than either myself or Adrienna will ever be. Photography by Apt B Photography.

When the Rising Tide Society asks to borrow a dress we jumped at the opportunity since that would mean our dress getting photographed by many different photographers! This amazing Gatsby shoot featuring our Anna Campbell shoot was recently up on Borrowed & Blue featuring the images from Tiffany Loera.

Summertime and the livin' is so crazy busy it's like we are swimming across the ocean and there's no end in sight and we're just singing to ourselves "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming..." but as I said before, we wouldn't have it any other way. We love all the hustle and bustle and it's what keeps us going and keeps us amped up for all the fun coming our way!!! And one of these days we will actually get to spend several hours updating our website with all the new amazing pictures we keep receiving from all these talented photographers but until then, we will just keep on swimming. Happy summer y'all xoxoxox, n.
