Where you can find my recent work, inspiration and all things elopement.

welcome to the blog.



websitelaunch1 WOW!  I cannot believe this day is finally here!! After a long week of prep and many emails and phone calls, the incredible Jeffrey Shipley, J. Shipley Creative and Tonic Site Shop, worked his magic and brought it all together and the time has come to celebrate! My new brand has launched and the WEBSITE IS LIVE!! EEEKKK!!! Yay!!!

Where do I even begin? What an amazing feeling it is to finally be able to share my new site and blog with clients and friends.  For the first time, I have a website and brand that is a true reflection of me! But before I get ahead of myself, I want to be sure I thank the incredible designer and friend behind this rebrand.

Mr. Jeffrey Shipley.  WOW!  What a wild process and journey this has been! Even with both of lives and travel schedules being a bit crazy at times – WE DID IT! Jeffrey, you have a gift! Seriously! When I first moved to Seattle, a year and half ago, I heard about this amazing graphic designer who lived downtown Seattle and after seeing your work I thought, “Man, it would be a dream to work with Jeffrey Shipley!”  I am so excited to say that my dream came true and now I have a GORGEOUS WEBSITE to prove it!  Your excitement, vision, and patience was the perfect combination.  You took my ideas and brought them to life and made them look even better then what I could have even imagined!! Thank you. I am so excited that throughout this discovery process I gained a friend.

Agustin: Thank you for your continual support. For looking over logo proofs and portfolio photos, and helping me make this brand everything I wanted it to be and more!  Thank you for your patience! And thank you for always being my #1 fan and encourager! :-)

Well, I will be excited to dive into the rebranding process with you next week, but for now let’s ENJOY the GORGEOUS NEW BLOG AND WEBSITE!!  There are so many fun elements to the site like my LOVES, my Travel Log Map (one of my favorite features!), and soo much more!! Please – take a look around!!
