Harry Potter Wedding Styled Shoot

Loving this Harry Potter Wedding Styled Shoot! How gorgeous is this?!

Boy, 2019 is coming to a close and I am VERY excited for this. This was easily the hardest year of my life. Whenever I say that, I think of the time of Fall Junior Year in High School and Winter of Senior Year, where I finally left high school to get my GED. During that time, my dad was arrested, I almost failed my Junior year, got fired from a ranch I was working at, ran away from home, testified to put my father in prison, dated a very abusive human and tried to kill myself.

2019 won, but it was a tight competition. I’ll be doing a recap later, but essentially, this year tried me in every capacity. I’m grateful for the lessons and the growth, but also…GTFO 2019. hah! Next week, Josh and I move into our first apartment. I’ve been spending hours upon hours upon hours researching everything we need. and we needed a LOT. We don’t even have any furniture! I found myself really drawn to mid-century modern furniture, which makes my current binging of MadMen quite fun. “I want a table that looks like that!” or “I just bought a couch that looks like that!” I’ve decided to have a mint green themed kitchen as well. My favoritest color is teal so there will always be a LOT of that color in my home, as well. Anyway, as soon as the apartment is ready to go, I’m going to have a house warming and all of my clients/friends will be invited!

I finished my masters classes too. I’m officially halfway done with my masters, something I never thought I would say. From January 20th-March 29th, I’ll be having to take three masters classes at once. I’m straight up dreading it, but I need to maximize the last three months left on my GI Bill. I know I can do it, but man…it gives me insane anxiety to consider the stress it’ll take. But the good news is that I’ll get my masters by the end of 2020. That’s my big goal right now. I’m going to get it.

But to reflect on my time in high school (or lack thereof), I think of how obsessed I was with Harry Potter back then. Even in my debate class, my teacher called me Representative Potter, because you could always find me nose to paper in a book, trying to decipher what J.K. Rowling would do next (I was wrong in all of my predictions). Harry Potter has been and always will be a representation of my desire to escape the real world. A wish for an owl with a letter, a desperate need for a wand, a hope for a spell to fix my broken childhood. Harry Potter has always been there for me, so when Crystal Vision Events let me know she was organizing a Harry Potter themed styled shoot, I was as down as a good boy dog, especially when she showed me the main dress made of feathers. Then when she mentioned some feather friends, how on earth could I pass this up?!

Thanks to all of the amazing vendors that made this such fun!!
