Emily + Gunnar | Kansas City Wedding

untitled (1001 of 1)-7

“So, I met this awesome guy Gunnar. I’d be sooo lucky to marry a guy like that one day…” Tears filled the voice of Maid of Honor, Taylor, during her toast, as she quoted her twin sister. She knew her sister’s dreams had come true. It was evident to everyone in the room that these two have a love so beautiful, and pure. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a celebration quite like this. These two are abundantly rich in love. Not only with one another, and their amazing families, but with a multitude of friends that came from afar to celebrate them. This day was blissful, joyful, fun and sweet, just like this couple. It truly couldn’t have been more perfect. I’m so honored to have gotten to capture it alongside my husband. (Video coming soon!)

Kopari Beauty- for hair and skin



Raise your hand if you’re the kinda girl (or guy) who goes crazy for hair with a healthy shimmer + softness to it. I know that’s me. I’m always a sucker for trying new beauty products, and when i find one that works, I want to share it with the world. Kopari has a variety of great products that use 100% coconut oil and have a multitude of benefits for your face, skin and hair. I have been trying out the coconut sheer oil as a cuticle cream, eye makeup remover and eye cream for night time and I have to say, I love it. My nails have needed a break from the constant rotation of colors that I usually coat them with, and instead I’ve been slapping on some coconut sheer instead which has made them grow so fast, and left them strong once again,  and my cuticles are smooth as ever.

This Kopari Coconut Melt is now my go-to hair mask. Make yourself a nice bath, light some candles and grab a magazine while this stuff soaks in your hair. You can even slather a little on your body and soak in it, or use it on your legs for a nice shave.
Remember a little goes a long way, and I’d definitely avoid the roots, as its a super powerful moisturizer. The first time I left it in overnight, but I don’t think my hair needed quite that much moisture, so the next time I rinsed it out right after my bath.  I noticed a definite shine and softness in my hair so I’ll be keeping this handy for those summer months where the pool and sun really do a number on my hair.

After searching and searching for a lamp, which was clean, simple looking, and not too large for my side tables, but also let off a soft, warm light, I was hitting a wall. I simply couldn’t find something that fit all my desires. UNTIL, I found Dyana, (My angel). She had just launched YuccaLane and immediately was in a pop-up shop in WestElm, where of  course, in one day she sold a large bundle of these lamps all at once.

These Lamps are the absolute perfect size for a side table, they have a beautiful, simple, silver switch to turn them on, and they come equipped the the most gorgeous bulbs. They add such a great feel to our home and let off the warmest, coziest, romantic light at night, you’ll think you have a bunch of candles lit. 10untitled (18 of 9)untitled (17 of 9)
