These awesome Heroes are truly worthy of the title. I don’t know where I would be without them. They have either contributed toward help with this site, or they have provided assistance in some aspect of my day-to-day life. I could not imagine trying to exist without them. I encourage you to read about them, applaud them, and consider visiting their sites.

Above all, I absolutely ask that you let out a hearty, “Excelsior!” They have more than earned it.

Tami Schoenholz

Photographer, Artist Extraordinaire

Besides being my super-awesome little sister, Tami is the designer of my adorable logo for AK. She’s also an amazing photographer, both at her day job and in her spare time.

You can follow her stunning crochet work on Instagram (@hookedonnerdy), or you can pick up one of her outstanding crochet patterns in her Etsy shop Hooked on Nerdy.

Amazingly Focused


Confession: these outstanding photographers are also insanely good friends. You won’t regret looking into their work, despite my teeny-tiny bias. They took some of the stunning photos at our wedding, and when they make their big break down the line? I’m going to be proud to say I knew them when.

Bewitched Salon

Hair and Makeup

Yes, my hair looks awesome. Do I have ANYTHING to do with that? Not so much. Nan is my beloved hair stylist who ensures I look amazing. She also did the stunning makeup for my wedding. Without her, I would resemble a hot mess.

Chelsea Tracy


Chelsea is the phenomenal photographer responsible for my head shot. She also took the engagement pictures for my husband and me, and they’re gorgeous. She is wonderful to work with, and her work speaks for itself.

Lasered Treasure

LASER Engraving

Besides being my parents and helping out with various wedding details (LOVE THEM!), they also operate a LASER-engraving business. Cassie is the official mascot and greeter (self-appointed, as you might expect ).

Doodle Cookie Company

Cookie Artist

Have you ever wanted amazing cookies? Cookies that not only tasted fantastic but looked too good to eat? (I mean, you’ll eat them, but you’ll snap a photo first) Hit up Doodle Cookie Company.

When we presented the challenge of turning the Minions into dragons for our wedding, Kylie didn’t bat an eye – and they were perfect!

Twisted Sisters

Cupcakes, Cakes, and More

Not gonna lie – we hit up Twisted Sisters A LOT. After deciding they would make our wedding cake, it was impossible to stay away. With featured monthly and weekly flavors, it’s impossible NOT to sneak over there.

Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust Travel

Travel Agency

Interested in a Disney vacation? Sara is your go-to Travel Agent! (She’s also a dear friend from college) She set my husband and I up for our Disney Cruise honeymoon, and she can work the same magic for you.
