I have been wanting & hoping & wishing & praying to write a post like this for what seems like forever . . .
I am so happy & excited to announce my husband & I are expecting a baby boy in July! Words cannot even describe how over the moon we are about Baby Boy Koru. It's a dream come true, & I count my lucky stars every day.
As most of you know, my journey towards parenthood has been long, winding & trying. I last spoke of this journey about one year ago & I've been pretty mum since. My silence wasn't because there was nothing to say. Quite the contrary! There was so much to say I could hardly put my experiences into a coherent post. I hope to write about it someday, to remember the journey & to help others who may be experiencing something similar. For now, all I can say is every step, every stumble & every fall was worth it.
It's not lost on me that this particular adventure is just beginning. I won't breathe easy until Baby Boy Koru is safe, happy & healthy in my arms. But my worries are merely a footnote in this journey. I am truly enjoying every moment of my pregnancy, basking in its glory & wonder.
What does this mean for Koru Wedding? In a complete leap of faith last summer, I decided not to accept any 2014 weddings. It didn't seem fair to compromise the time, attention & passion I devote to Koru clients & weddings because I was either hugely pregnant or juggling a newborn. Thankfully, my decision was the right one since Baby Boy Koru will be here soon! I will consider 2015 weddings on a case-by-case basis & I hope to be fully back in the wedding game by 2016.
As for Koru Wedding Style, I will do my best. I'm sure most of you have noticed I have had trouble blogging & visiting other blogs regularly since the summer. Now you know I had good reason! From here on out, I will blog when inspiration strikes. Hopefully, that will be fairly often! No promises.
Koru Wedding is based upon the inspiration & celebration of new beginnings. To me, that's always meant weddings. Now I've expanded my horizons to realize Baby Boy Koru is a new beginning for my family, one that deserves my complete & full attention. & so it goes!
Thank you for sharing in my exciting news!

Happy Wedding Wednesday!
Today's wedding is quite a treat- a darling, rustic affair in Australia. It's the complete rustic, romantic package with a candlelit ceremony & intimate barn-like reception. Not to mention a killer classic car or two! Gold Hat Photography shows us the beauty:
Kirby & Jonathan were married on November 3 in Victoria, Australia at Emu Bottom Homestead. The historical venue is surrounded by pretty gardens & rural countryside, perfect for a rustic wedding celebration. The wedding day began with the Bride arriving at the venue in style, traveling in a vintage black beauty. The marriage ceremony took place at The Slab Hut, a charming former farm worker's cottage lit by the soft glow of candlelight. In this natural warmth, the Bride & Groom said "I Do!" in front of their close family & friends. An intimate reception followed in The Woolshed, made of rough hewn beams & filled with candles, bunting, poms & clusters of flowers. Here, the Bride, Grooom & their guests had a great time celebrating!
My Favorite Moment: The newlyweds stealing a kiss in their cool vintage ride!
My Favorite Detail: The venue is absolutely unique & awesome.
Congratulations, Kirby & Jonathan!
