Birdie’s is still in its infancy with a lot to learn and I’m thankful to friends who’ve bought earrings over the past few weeks and have said such kind things. Friends mostly have to be kind though 😉 and this morning I woke up to find my first two official non-friend reviews! Although we are now connected on here so she’s starting to feel like a friend. Thank you, you know who you are!
Let me tell you a little story... My mom died when Morgan was 5, a year before Logan was born and 3 years before Jordan was born. She left her jewelry to Morgan, including her wedding rings. Most of the diamonds wound up in Morgan’s wedding rings.
I raised two very thoughtful girls, who always put a lot of heart into the gifts they give. When Jordan got engaged, Morgan decided she wanted to give her something special; something from the grandmother she never got to know. This necklace, with the #diamond from my mom’s wedding ring, is that something special. It was her #somethingold and her #somethingnew , and it was like her grandmother was there with her on her special day. I am so proud of my girls, and I can’t imagine a more special #wedding gift. ❤️ (Photo by Rachel Noel Photography)
My Wedding dress story actually started all the way back to 2014 or even earlier!
I had a completely different dress picked out that I really loved but was a lot more plain than this one.
I loved my original pick, but for some reason it wasn’t a “me dress”. I’m a lead singer of a metal band, so I wanted my dress to be classy but have more flair as my personality is far from small 😉 ♥️
The staff at @everafterbridalboutique are by far the best at what they do, and over the past few years, between job losses and financial set backs, they were patient and understanding. When my husband and I were finally in a better financial situation, I went in to take a second look at their current selection of dresses. The very first dress I tried on (and the one seen in this photo) was the clear winner, as it hugged my body in the most elegant manner and it was indeed an “Amanda” dress:) In addition to being kind, patient, courteous and so much more, the girls at ever after made me feel like I was beautiful and important. I recently had a large weight loss but still had some body confidence issues ( My mind still sometimes plays tricks on me that I’m still larger than what I am) but these ladies made me feel like a superstar!
These gals did so much more than sell me a dress, they felt like they became a part of my family, a family that is loving and understanding.
If you are a bride looking for your dream dress but want an exceptional and personal experience, please do yourself a favour and go see the ladies at @everafterbridalboutique ♥️

En ocasiones olvidamos que el valor simbólico y afectivo de la joyería va más allá de las tendencias, del lujo y de lo estético. La joyería con propósito honra el pasado-presente-futuro de las familias y representa el amor.
Estas argollas de matrimonio fueron elaboradas con joyas de oro que heredó Shannon Patrick (@sha.patrick )de su abuela materna de origen colombiano quien murió mucho antes de conocer a su nieta.
