2018 Year in Review

How can it possibly be 2019 already? It feels like just yesterday that we decided to take the leap into entrepreneurship and bring our dream for Honey + Heart to life. Fifteen months, challenges, adventure, and eight amazing weddings later, it fills our heart with warmth and gratitude to look back on what a wonderful year 2018 was.

We started 2018 off with a gorgeous styled shoot album from the incredibly talented Boy Girl Beauty World. This was our first shoot together, and the Continental Fire Co. was the nothing short of the perfect venue for their style. And how beautiful is our model Caitlin?!

January also marked our first public appearance at the Keweenaw Bridal Expo. We were anxious and nervous, but so excited to meet potential clients and fellow vendors in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The day ended up being such a blast - we met so many incredible vendors, talked with excited brides-to-be, and booked some 2018 weddings. We can’t wait to be a part of this event in 2019!

Fast forward to March. Jordanna and Taylor participated in a private workshop with the ever amazing Rhiannon Bosse. Rhiannon has been a Honey + Heart inspiration from day one with her seemingly effortless event planning and design, flawless attention to detail, and her selfless coaching for aspiring planners like us. We also got to meet the incredible Samantha James Photography and shared nothing but laughs as she captured our work. We’ll be sharing a full blog post on this workshop soon!

In April, we got the opportunity to work with Boy Girl Beauty World again our the first wedding of the season. Taylor created a simple, elegant bouquet and we added subtle floral decor to the Chicago Athletic Association for Lauren and Matt’s intimate Chicago elopement.

September concluded our flurry of a wedding season, and we couldn’t have asked for a better couple to end the year with - fellow Michigan Tech Huskies!

And last but not least, we finished the year as we started: with a dreamy styled shoot :) Shelby and Nick were such troopers as they trekked through the woods on a snowy winter afternoon in Michigan. We can’t wait to share all of the images from Penrose Lyn Photography in an upcoming blog post!

2018 was a wonderful year. We are thankful for all of our amazing brides and grooms, the loving families and friends we met along the way, and the talented photographers who allow us to share these memories with you. We couldn’t have done any of it without you, and we can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
