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, and I could not imagine trying to exist without them. I encourage you to read up on them and consider visiting their sites.

Above all, I absolutely ask that you applaud them with 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 is also an amazing photographer, both at her day job and in her spare time.

You can follow her stunning crochet work on her 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 of ours. You won’t regret looking into their insanely good work, all the same. They took some of the stunning photos at our wedding, and I’m proud to say I knew them when.

They’re Facebook site is here (feel free to hassle them about an official website).

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.

You can’t go wrong hitting up the site to see the amazing work they do.

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

Visit her site to see her beautiful work.

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).

Check out their site for all of the work they’re capable of.

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 still 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, she didn’t bat an eye – and they were perfect!

Visit her site or look her up on Instagram under @doodlecookieco to see more of her amazing work.

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.

Come on – you know you want to stop by their site and see what the fuss is about.

Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust Travel

Visit her Facebook for details.
