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

Sarahfete, wander

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

The Summer of the West Coast: San Diego


As the snow falls outside, I can only dream of last years warm summer adventures. In addition to San Francisco and Seattle, I was so excited to get to travel to San Diego, California! One of my best friends from college, Corinn, lives in this sunny city and it was awesome to get to hang out and explore. I want to go back as soon as possible! The weather was absolutely perfect. San Diego is definitely on my list of cities I’d love to move to one day. There is a lot of industry, so even though it felt like a vacation city, tons of awesome … 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. Their Columbia, Maryland summer wedding was a wonderful celebration filled with meaningful details from the dress and ceremony to the music and food.

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

The Summer of the West Coast: Seattle

Saraheat, wander

Here we are, one week into autumn. While I absolutely love fall weather, pumpkin lattes and colorful leaves, I am sad to see summer come to a close. My husband and I had an amazing summer filled with new adventures. With all of our traveling to the west coast, I discovered that I may love the west coast more than the east coast. I don’t know if I have a strong enough case study quite yet, but there’s something wonderful in the air… or it could truly be the joy from fulfilling my wanderlust! Anyways, we loved our super short Seattle visit! We … Read More

The Summer of the West Coast: San Francisco

Saraheat, wander

Why have I never traveled to California until this year? San Francisco is an amazing city. There is so much to do that our few days there were definitely not enough! We’ll visit again. We were so happy to stay with one of our good friends who lives in the city now and has an incredible career at Google. As soon as we arrived, we grabbed some brunch across the street from Twitter at Little Griddle. It was delicious! We tried to walk to her apartment after eating, but carrying around luggage is not super fun, so we grabbed an Uber … Read More

3 Instagram Tips for Business

Sarahmarket, wander

I am completely geeking out about our trip to San Francisco. San Francisco and Silicon Valley are tech hubs and I love the energy of the area – though I’ve never visited before! Over the past weekend, I watched The Social Network about Facebook and The Internship about Google. I am enamored with all the amazing tech start-ups and successful businesses. I’m even learning HTML5 through Udemy (another San Fran tech company) as I try to learn how to add on custom features to this blog! In honor of our trip, I wanted to write a marketing post about one of my favorite social networks … Read More

What I’m Looking Forward To: March

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
