I can't express how thrilled I am to finally be getting items crossed of my wedding "To Do" list. I feel accomplished and capable knowing I'm getting it done. Woot!
As I mentioned before, and will likely mention many times more, we have a very small budget. Although we could have afforded more, I can't stand the idea of wasting thousands of dollars on one day - and important day - but just ONE day when it comes right down to it. So, in an effort to be frugal, resourceful and creative, I am doing my best to stick to it.
Photography has been the biggest headache when it came to staying within our budget. About 4 - 5 months ago I resigned myself to the idea of blowing our budget in order to get a decent photographer. I scoured the internet for deals but had zero luck finding anything. Don't get me wrong, there were photographers within our budget, but the results often looked worse that what my digital camera and I produce on a daily basis. PASS! It was looking like about double my photography budget to get the creativity, artistry and thoughtfulness that I really wanted.
Then about 2 months ago one of my favorite wedding blogs, The Budget Savvy Bride, featured a Columbus, Ohio wedding submitted by none other than our wedding photographer: Jessica Miller! In addition to being well withing our budget, her work is fabulous and I am so excited to have her be a part of our day. If you're in the Columbus area and looking for a wedding photographer, I definitely recommend checking her out!

And CHECK photographer OFF the list!!
