I thought it might be fun to share some snapshots of my new Look Book with you all. If you’re clients of mine, then you’ve already seen this (sorry, old news!) but if you’re future clients, then this is what you have to look forward to.

Wedding planning is stressful. We all know that. There are so many details to think of, so many tasks to accomplish. But the main reason couples get overwhelmed is because they try to tackle the tasks and think about the details all at once. I meet with brides for consultations, a year before their wedding, [...]
I don’t often talk about my second, full-time, job (you know, on the side) but I just couldn’t resist today. In addition to Kristine Aletha Weddings, I also work at BHLDN Chicago, and actually helped open the store a year ago. With the celebration of our year anniversary coming up and a [...]

I know how overwhelming it is when you first start hiring vendors for your wedding. There are just SO MANY. Caterer, photographer, videographer, florist, DJ, rentals, planner…the list goes on. And I know how overwhelming it is to make sure you’re sticking to your budget as you’re hiring these people. But hear me when I [...]
