We asked and you answered. We are so excited for this wedding inspiration blog revamp for Dovetail Weddings! Our amazing and helpful wedding blog is coming at you full force!

What inspired our blog revamp?

After I started Weddings In Indiana in 2018, it quickly grew. I loved sifting  through the incredibly talented Indiana Wedding Pros, inspired to share their work. However, 2020 had other plans for me. Weddings In Indiana’s beautifully curated Instagram feed and website are still up for you to peruse Indiana wedding inspiration and vendors. Alas, my true calling is back working with my couples.

Last February my sister and business partner, Jessica McCormack, and I decided to join forces and become the ULTIMATE WEDDING PLANNING SISTER DUO! Jessica, along with Event Management Degree from IU, brings to the table Wedding and Events Planning and Hotel background.

Wedding Planning is in our DNA

Dovetail Weddings has brought us a lot of joy; even in this tough year. Special times were had as we got to talk about how wedding planning is in our DNA. Our Grandmother was a wedding planner in SoCal in the 90s. We are following in our her footsteps. Not to mention sharing in our our mother’s entrepreneurial spirit of owning a small business, you won’t find prouder and more honored women!

How about you?

We would love to get to know YOU, so please tell us your “Rose” and your “Thorn” for 2020 in the comments. 

Our “Rose” for 2020 was the grace our “COVID Couples” gave us as together we navigated this unprecedented time. We spoke to them all at least twice a week and although the situation was intense with reschedules, they kept their spirits high and their love strong. Our “thorn” was seeing the stress be dumped on our couples as concern grew for safety of loved ones all around. The decisions were tough and I was glad each could talk it through with us and we came to all the perfect conclusions.

    How cool!

    My rose was still have a socially distanced graduation even in a pandemic.

    My thorn is I didn’t get to travel the world as much as years previous.
