Episode 16: Nothing has gone wrong here

Today I want to talk about a little mantra- Nothing has gone wrong here. It’s a sentence or a thought that you can choose when shit hits the fan. When you are planning a wedding, I promise you that will happen.

There is just something so magical about wedding planning but it brings up so much for so many people. Weddings make people super reflective about their pasts, their futures, their hopes, their dreams, their regrets, their heartbreaks.

Listen in as I discuss, choosing your own thoughts, how to overcome bizarre challenges, and finding evidence to support your thoughts.

Episode 15: Rest

Today I want to talk about rest. I am a huge fan of rest and our culture often vilifies rest and we end up feeling guilty for resting thinking we should be working. When we should be resting, it’s so easy to press play on another episode on Netflix or scroll Instagram.

But today I want to talk about a type of resting called Intentional Resting. It’s a concept developed by Dan Howard and I have found it to be really powerful.

Listen in as I discuss, a powerful way to use rest to prepare for your wedding, how resting helps your relationships, and affirmations to use to invoke the feeling of rest.

Episode 14: Can You Just be Happy for Me?

Getting engaged is that short window in life where everything is magical and full of hope and possibility.

So why would anyone need a life coach during this time?

Most people who have been through this season of life will tell you that it is far more of an emotional rollercoaster than most people anticipate.

Listen in as I discuss, how maybe more time is needed, looking at the way you talk about your engagement, and giving others grace.

Episode 12: Weddings without Religion

More and more people are marrying people of different faiths, cultures, and traditions. This means that the default church wedding that we always see in movies doesn’t play out that naturally for so many of us.

How much of what we believe in is just because it’s what we were taught growing up?

Listen in as I discuss, why you don’t have to have a religious ceremony, keeping your identity in your wedding, and the magic of creating something new.

I want to give you a really simple reminder that is key for your wedding but also for your life and it’s a phrase I come back to time and time again and it’s, hold two things.

Episode 8: What's In a Name?

The name change. It’s a big part of getting married. Most of us assumed we would change our names when we got married. Until the time comes to change your name. It’s weirdly unnerving.

Suddenly you are supposed to just have a different name. Talk about an identity crisis. Even though you expected it, it feels weird.

Expect it to be uncomfortable. Decide for yourself what you want to do. Think about your career, your kids, and then talk to your fiance. You might be surprised to hear how much it matters to him or the opposite. He might really want you to keep your name.

Episode 7: Creativity & Constraint


As I am recording this, it’s the summer of 2021- we are crawling out of a pandemic after nearly a year and a half. A pandemic that locked down most of the country, and the world, and obviously also shut the wedding industry down in its tracks.

The rescheduling began. Things got complicated but also, people got really creative. People started to have these insanely intimate and beautiful ceremonies. They zoomed them. They wore their dress, they had incredible floral installations, they had them in yards, in front of fireplaces. We called them micro weddings but they were maximum on love, romance, beauty, detail.

Episode 6: Your Parents

Our culture is so singularly focused on the romantic love narrative that I think it really misses out on the love story that’s also wrapped into the wedding day- specifically with our parents.

Parents think about the day- who they will be on that day, how they will feel, it’s a completion of their job in many ways. They think about how they pay for it.

The bottom line is your parents are going through a major change and all of the emotion that comes with it. They are dealing with the relationship reshuffle, the new family dynamic, and the new life phase
