Real Wedding: Virginia Plantation Wedding

Sarahfete, wander

I am excited to share Annelise and Jared’s wedding with you today! Annelise is one of my best friends from James Madison University (JMU). We were both dance majors and right before our final year at JMU, we went on an alternative “spring break” to New Orleans, LA to rehab homes damaged by Hurricane Katrina. It’s one of my favorite JMU memories! Jared and Annelise were blessed with warm weather for their April wedding, which was perfect for an early evening ceremony. The venue was a gorgeous plantation-style home tucked away in the Virginia countryside. The whole wedding party was able to … Read More

I am so excited to share this wedding with you today! I’ve been holding onto it for a while and absolutely love these beautiful images of Ariele & Justin’s “bohemian farmhouse”celebration. These two lovebirds created a romantic fall wedding completely matching their style and personalities. I was so disappointed I couldn’t attend their wedding due to work commitments last year, but am thankful Ariele and Justin shared their wedding day and love story for the blog! I met Ariele and Justin in Charlottesville, Virginia when we all worked for Search Mojo. They are both marketing stars with incredible adventurous spirits. While they live in Boston, … Read More

Real Wedding: Asheville Fall Wedding

Sarahasheville, fete

I surprised Brent with a New Year’s trip to Asheville and Charleston for Christmas 2012. We were going to visit Emily, one of my college roommates from JMU (J-M-U Duuuukes!) in Asheville. On our first day there, we went to breakfast with Emily and she introduced us to her boyfriend, Ford. Fast forward three-ish years later and Emily & Ford said their ‘I Do’s’!! I was so honored when Emily asked me to be one of her bridesmaids! I was thrilled to experience an Asheville wedding as a guest, too, since most of my Spring and Fall weekends are spent working … Read More

Ilana and Mike are approaching their 6 month wedding anniversary and I am so excited to share images from their beautiful wedding day.

The wedding and ceremony took place at historic Oakland Manor on June 20th. Ilana kindly shared the images from the talented L.A. … Read More

Real Wedding: Ocean City New Jersey Beach Wedding

Sarahfete, wander

Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary, Dana and Mike! My sister and her husband are celebrating their first year of marriage today and I honestly wish we could do the whole celebration again. I’ll admit I am biased (it was my sisters wedding after all!), but their wedding was absolutely perfect and Dana looked gorgeous! They celebrated at our family’s vacation town (where we won family of the year in 1994) and it was luckily a warm, sunny fall weekend in October. Some of our friends and family even jumped in the ocean! I sent some questions to Dana to help tell the story … Read More

Celebrating Year One


I’ve been Mrs. Kiomall for one year. It has been an amazing year and we are so excited that this is only the beginning. I honestly can’t believe it was over a year ago that we were packing up our car and heading to Virginia to celebrate with some of our closest friends and family. We had planned our wedding weekend for just over a year and it was absolutely perfect. With the help of my sister, we settled on Wolftrap Farm in Gordonsville, Virginia, located just outside Charlottesville, as our wedding venue. We originally dreamed of a vineyard wedding … Read More

Sarahart, asheville, dwell, fete, wander

I can’t believe March has arrived. Raise your hand if you are overwhelmed we are already 2 months into 2015?! I sure am! Although the winter can be beautiful, I’m thrilled we are moving toward… SPRING Twenty more days until Spring begins. Winter is my least favorite season… I don’t mind the snow, but having to bundle up all the time and have the wind burn my skin is not how I like to live. The sunshine makes me fall in love with Asheville again – there’s so much to do when you can walk around outside!!   BACHELORETTE IN BALTIMORE I am so … Read More
