Final Bridal Fitness Countdown

If you’re looking to shed those last few pounds before your special day, this is the place! I’m not going to share some super unhealthy diet plan that involves juicing or some crazy vegetable diet for a week. Losing those last few pounds should shed in a healthy way! These are a few tips that will help you feel even more beautiful for your special day. Like I said, there’s not “quick-fix” that will get you to lose 10 pounds in one week, so it’s important to start early.

  1. Eat your carbs early in the day. Carbs are my favorite type of food, but indulging too many can cause weight gain, especially if they are being consumed late at night.
  1. Switch your milk. Milk can be fattening, so make the switch from 2% to almond milk, and it will prove to be more beneficial.
  1. Get Active! This one’s pretty obvious, but even if it’s walking, getting your body moving will help you shed those last few pounds. I used to be a night-owl and workout around 10 pm after work, but lately, I just haven’t found the energy to workout after a long day. Getting up early has proved to put me in a better mood for the entire day, as well as getting my workout completed so I can enjoy the rest of my day!
  1. Incorporate Exercise in the Little Things. These include things like parking your car far from the mall so you have to walk a little further, hand-washing your car, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, etc…
  1. Limit Alcohol/sugar intake. Cutting these things aren’t the easiest, but have proved to be more beneficial not only in cost, but for your health as well.

By incorporating little changes in making a healthier lifestyle, they can help anyone feel that much better by their wedding day!

A Yes Girl Gets Married: A Videographer

I signed a wedding contract last week! YAY! It only seemed appropriate that one of the first vendors I booked for Aaron and I’s wedding is the videographer that captured our proposal so well. The couple over at Carpe Diem Productions was such a joy to shoot with and they turned over our proposal video so quickly that I felt very confident in asking them to capture our wedding as well. Plus their Vimeo account is busting at the seams with great wedding videos! Can you tell how excited I am – there are a lot of exclamation marks in this blog post :)

Here is an example of a wedding they have shot in the past:

Brooke + Michael from Carpe Diem Video Productions on Vimeo.

This couple was amazing! One of the most fun weddings I have ever attended!

Dallas Gazebo Marriage Proposal by The Yes Girls

Walter and Hailey were such a wonderful couple to work with. Walter even wrote a fantastic testimonial for us to share with our readers! So, who better to tell the proposal story than Walter himself:

“I met Hailey during leave this past December. We really hit it off and were eager to stay in touch. Unfortunately, I had to go back to Basic Training in South Carolina. Our relationship blossomed rapidly as we continued to send each other letters. When I was allowed to have my phone at AIT we couldn’t get enough of each other. We began Skyping in March and I met her family and friends while I was stationed at Fort Sill. Eventually I was allowed to get off base on the weekends and Venus, Texas was close enough to go visit her from there. Things continued to move along smoothly. We went to Rangers games and found other similarities.

I wanted to propose to her, but was unsure of how to do it. She preferred that I had someone on hand to photograph the moment, and that is when I landed upon The Yes Girls. Even though I was unable to travel up to Dallas for the planning, they did a fabulous job of picking a wonderful place with a beautiful gazebo. They made a large board with 15 of our pictures together and 15 verses that really spoke to us. They even made a fake flyer for a “Garden Show Event” on the special day so that I could trick Hailey into going to the place. Hailey and I arrived and the plan worked out wonderfully! I got down on one knee and asked and she made my dream come true by saying yes! One of the best days of my life, and I couldn’t have done it without The Yes Girls. God bless them so much, Hailey and I will remain engaged as I am deployed to South Korea for a year, and we are getting married April 15, 2017.”

A Yes Girl Gets Married: Engagement Pictures

EEEKK! We got our engagement pictures in and I am SO excited to share them with all of you! Aaron and I decided that our favorite way to incorporate the Dallas Skyline into our wedding is to have the silhouette be a part of our Save The Dates. Because of that decision, we asked our photographer to meet us at Trinity Groves’ Margaret Hunt Bridge so that we could have the skyline as our backdrop! With the lighting at that location, we ended up having to shoot the pictures at 6am, but boy-oh-boy did that choice pay off! The lighting is stunning and I love how the sunrise created shadows off of the skyline buildings! Thank you to the incredible Taylor Alexandra Photo for capturing our love so well.
