Preferred Vendor: Gathered Confections, Whatcom County Baker Utilizing Local, Seasonal, and Organic Ingredients
I started following Gathered Confections a while back because of her commitment to using local, seasonal, and organic ingredients whenever possible. Though our professions are different, I know how difficult it can be financially to choose local suppliers over cheaper options online. When I told Sarah I loved this about her business and wanted to feature her on my blog, her first instinct was to include a favorite local farm and show where the desserts come from!
Hoping to find new places to meet with friends and clients, I decided to search for the best coffee shops in Bellingham. It was a great excuse to spend time with friends and other small business owners, and I'm hoping that it helps build community, too! Though I love my lattes, I'm no coffee expert, so I encourage you to try each of these shops on your own. Comment below to let me know which ones you like best!
Last week, Elizabeth and Erika featured me as a "Boss Lady" on their Streets of Gold blog! Each month they feature one female small business owner, and I was thrilled when Elizabeth asked me! We met at Taylor and Allison's wedding in 2015, and when I asked her to send me some business cards, she went all out. If she put that much thought into something for me, I could only imagine that she must give her clients an incredible experience, too. And I was right!

No matter where you are in your wedding planning process, chances are, you're planning to hire a photographer to document all the love and hard work you put into your big day. I've always been a very sentimental person, so in my opinion, photography should be a top priority. These are the photographs that will decorate your walls and table tops, the photos your parents and grandparents will brag about, and the photos your children will someday cherish.
