wedding wednesday: how to find your awesome honeymoon destination


Hi Friend! Welcome to my Wedding Wednesday posts! Here I discuss everything about weddings and help answer questions. Weddings can be overwhelming! There are so many things to plan and so many vendors to choose from. So here on Davong Marie, I hope to give you advice and a peace of mind. Call me weird but I adore weddings, every detail. So let's go!

This post we're discussing honeymoons!!!

Where to stay
Let's be real. This is the best part besides being married to the best man/woman ever! I was a bride, I know! The first question you run into is "Where do we go?". Then, some of you are like any where there is a beach and sun! Yea! Ha! There are many options, but which is your honeymoon destination? First, discuss with your fiancé where you would like to stay/sleep. A bed perhaps is a good start. Maybe a bed and breakfast, an inn, luxury hotel, or a relaxing resort. It all depends on the experience you want.

Stuff to do

That brings me to my second item to discuss, what activities you want to explore on your honeymoon? For example, if you go on a cruise you have various activities like scuba diving or just relaxing with a book on an island you stop at. Or if you're like me, riding teacups at Disney's Magic Kingdom! I can't wait to go back! If you go to Italy, there are art museums and gondola rides! Maybe you just want to eat good food (I do!!!) and Italy has some great places you would like to eat! So does North Carolina! You could go to the mountains here in North Carolina and go hiking or horse back riding. If you're in Asheville, NC you should think about going to The Biltmore Estate for wine tasting and touring the beautiful home/garden of the Vanderbilts'.

Budget ideas

You're probably overwhelmed and thinking this just made you think so much more. You could start by narrowing down your choices. A great resource to help with flight and places to stay is Groupon. I found a great place to stay in Orlando for our honeymoon and saved some money too! They also have flight deals along with hotel! You could also start a honeyfund website and getting your guests to gift you money towards your honeymoon instead of a new china set. Your parents could gift you a honeymoon instead of paying for part of the wedding. Another way is if you have frequent flyer miles to use towards your flight or even reward points that Disney gives you for having their credit card.

I hope this helped friend and hope you have a fun honeymoon! Share photos and don't forget to follow me on FB, Instagram and Twitter!

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

outfit of the day: western denim shirt

What I wore:Andrew's Co. denim shirt, Old Navy shorts, Thrifted belt, Charming Charlie watch, Kay Jewlers pearl necklace, Belk's pearl earrings, Old Navy sunglasses, and Unisa sandals. (engagement ring: gift =) lol)

denim shirt by lisaanatha featuring short shorts
This denim shirt is very similar to J.Crew's western denim shirt here. (And pictured above) I'm not wearing the J.Crew's denim shirt, however I made an awesome find going through old boxes of clothes my mom had in her basement. A lot of clothing worn in the 80s and 90s are making it in today's fashion. I also found it humorous Zach and Kelly, from Saved by the Bell (show i loved from the 90s) , sported these denim shirt looks. Do you guys remember that?! Don't let go of this staple piece. I think it has been a summer trend, but it can easily transfer to fall and winter must haves too! In the winter I would wear this under a sweater for a warm, but chic look. Stay posted for that outfit of the day.…
