👆🏻 this might be the working title of my memoir 🤗. in all seriousness, sorry i’ve been so quiet this week— its just been a very busy one! I recorded a podcast episode with Eddie @timelinegenius that should be live soon (i’ll keep you posted on that one), buttoned up my presentation for the @signatureceo, and have been working on some AMAZING designs for two clients getting married in Barbados next year (hi @sarah__hamilton___ and @_smith.nora_ !). It’s been a really good week, and I’m grateful for it. What’s everyone working on? Spending some time on your feeds tonight to find out! 💕🙌🏻

Some things just get better with age; one of those things is our marriage. We celebrated our engagement anniversary this weekend. Did y’all know we were engaged after we got married? Don’t ask. We like to do things backwards. Happy Sunday!! 💕🙌🏻🤗

I’ve tried to count the amount of editorial photshoots I’ve styled over the years, and gave up at 28. I love creating editorial work, especially when it’s with @bethchapmanstyling and @c10ike (and my girl chole @coralpheasant). Every few months there’s always some talk in the industry about how “styled shoots” are bad for your business or the industry as a whole. Something about them being “unrealistic.” 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’ve never, ever felt that way (otherwise, why on earth would I do so many?!). They’ve always been a creative outlet for me, and give me the opportunity to create something for myself. It also makes me happy to know that the work can inspire someone else for their wedding or party. And they’ve brought me a lot of opportunities. Plus, a lot of memories were made with the gals above and that in and of itself makes them totally worth it. 💕

🌴🌴The rainforest where Sarah & Euri exchanged their vows is a special, special place. On top of a hill, next to a babbling brook, it’s a perfect circular clearing surrounded by the most lush landscape. When I first stepped into this spot, I got a feeling. The first feeling was that wedding planner instinct (the wedding ceremony MUST BE HERE!). The second that followed was awe. Nature can teach us more in its silence than the noise we choose to surround ourselves with. .
.
A circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement, and God ('God is a circle whose centre is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere’). Pretty powerful stuff, especially when within this circle is where two became one. 💕💕💕

Counting down the days until I’m on vacation... not because I’m tired, but because I need a change of scenery! I haven’t taken a vacation (a real legit vacation) in so long. I can’t even remember when, actually! How long has it been since YOU’VE taken a vacation — a real, unplugged, restful or adventurous trip? .

My heart is heavy this morning. So very heavy. It feels impossible to go about my day. Another shooting. Another life shattered. My entire heart is with those in Las Vegas and those affected worldwide by this senseless act of violence. So many friends are in Vegas right now attending the @theweddingmba and I am beyond relieved that most of them have checked in safely. But many loved ones won’t, and my heart is breaking for those who’ve lost. .
.
If you’re in Las Vegas or near Las Vegas, there is an urgent cry for blood donations. Please help. So many people are fighting for their lives and need you. 💕💕💕

Go grab the link in my profile, register, and put that notebook you bought for your BIG business ideas aside so you can take notes! See you there!
Barbados is so green and beautiful right now. 🌴💕🌴💕 I miss the fall tho. Jason and I were talking today that this will be my 6th winter away from home in Connecticut. I was reminiscing about how cozy the season is, and how I miss things like hot chocolate, corduroy, cardigans and other cute fall/winter stuff. .
.
Then I remembered what it was like to shovel snow, and I was like screw hot chocolate and cardigans. Happy Monday 🤗

There’s nothing like grabbing a hundred or so of your closest friends, flying out to Barbados, and getting hitched. 💕🌴 Destination weddings give you a chance to curate an experience for the people you love, and Jessica & Matthew threw one heck of a party to honor their love for one another. 💕🍍

This is one of those pinch me moments. So incredibly grateful, excited, and honored to have the opportunity to speak at @engagesummits in December. Many of these talented faces you see here have helped me to mold my business. They've inspired me, challenged me and changed me. They've made me laugh, cry AND they give the best hugs. If you've never attended engage, let me be one of many to encourage you to come. It's given me so many gifts, and I'm forever grateful. So, who will I see in December?! 💕

All good things must come to an end, and unfortunately, today that was my 2010 trusty iMac 🖥. Ever grow attached to a computer? I've been attached to this one since my business really took off so many years ago. It was the original, first mac computer I ever bought (thanks to the persuasiveness of @roberttrenske). She did me and my business good. Today, I'm grateful for the many days and nights spent on that computer designing not only my future, but helping to plan the marriages of hundreds of clients. I'm also grateful to @ishopbarbados for helping me pick out the next generation iMac (currently digesting my backup!)-- and all the new dreams, hopes, and marriages to come. 💕
.
.
also special shout out to @jasonkistoo (who asked to be mentioned for his role) for carrying the new computer to the car. it's the little things, folks. 🤗

It's time to get tipsy! For those of you who've never had a Bajan rum punch, I promise you that you have not lived your best life.
.
Not even close. .
But fear not! Remember that promise I made you, like 6 months ago, that I was going to share THE BEST bajan rum punch recipe? Well it's on the blog (link in profile) for your viewing (aka drinking) pleasure. I always keep my promises, abet a little delayed on this one. Shout out to my girl @coralpheasant for letting me use the fun graphic she made for Jessica & Matthew's wedding last year. So gooooo check it out! I know you need this drink in your life because: Tuesday.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by Hurricane Irma and Harvey. The situation in the Caribbean (where I live) is dire. The situation in Texas is still dire. The situation in Florida is unfolding as we speak, and dire. .
If you do one thing today, think about donating money, time, or resources to those who have been affected. The Caribbean, especially, needs our help.
To my friends in Florida and in Irma's path, I am here for you and praying. To my friends and neighbors in the Caribbean who have been devastated by this storm, know that we stand with you and will do what we can to help you. To my friends in Houston-- we have NOT forgotten about you.
Please continue to stay safe. Sending all our love. -- The K2s

Owning a business is HARD y'all. There's a lot they don't tell you when you first start out-- like the adrenaline you feel will DEFINITELY subside; that someday you WILL have to hire a lawyer to protect yourself and your business (lawyers cost money y'all! M-O-N-E-Y); that mistakes, even when you make them with no malicious intent, STILL have consequences. .
.
I was reminded of this yesterday when I discovered another business took my headshot image and used it to promote THEIR product. Without my consent. .
.
I was all like HELL TO THE NAW (in my @shereewhitfield voice) 🙅🏼 and immediately got on the phone to sort this issue OUT. .
.
The business owner on the other line claimed ignorance ("i just did a google search for pictures and I didn't know it would be a problem"). And that's what triggered me to think about this topic.
.
.
Because again, owning a business is HARD. But if you run a business, it's your JOB to know what's legal and illegal. And it's also your job to put on your big girl panties and DEAL with it (which is what I said, in not so many words). .
.
What's one thing you wish you could tell your younger self about what running a business is really like?
