Hey there! We're Kallan and Dustin and we're the people behind this whole thingy. Great to meet you! We can already tell that we're gonna be great friends. Oh, you too? Then scroll on to learn more about us and how we get down.
What We Believe About Weddings
There's no wrong way
We freaking love weddings. Like really love 'em. And we believe in everything that weddings represent; love, honesty, commitment, companionship, and a dang good time. (Insert confetti emoji.) But can we be real honest with you for a sec? There is one aspect about weddings that we just cannot get down with and that is the stress and pressure to conform to how others believe the "perfect wedding day" should be. Your wedding day should not be defined by Pinterest, Instagram, your mama's drama, or pretty much anyone who isn't YOU. We understand tradition and we understand making your friends and family proud. We aren't down-playing any of that. What we want to do is to give you permission to do things the way you want to do them. There is absolutely no right or wrong way to wedding.
If a huge fiesta with all your people is your thang then we say invite the whole mother flippin' town and dance like there's no tomorrow. If an intimate ceremony amongst giant redwoods is what tickles your fancy, then let's go to a tiny cabin in the forest so that you can whisper your love story to one another by a campfire. If you want to sing karaoke, skip through the lavender fields of Italy, go backpacking through Europe, or throw the most happenin' backyard wedding this world has ever seen, then do it! Whatever it is that makes your heart soar. Take our advice. This world is filled with people who have bowed to the pressure to conform and would give anything to hit the "do over" button on their wedding day. So do whatever you want to do, friend, and do it on purpose.
Fun Facts About Yours Truly
We Eloped On Leap Day
We Attempted Living In A Van
Opposites Attract For Real
We eloped to Sedona, Arizona back in 2016 on a Monday and haven't regretted it for one second. Fancy scenery is our thing. We actually won Best Elopement 2016 according to Junebug Weddings!
Strong emphasis on the word "attempted". We bought a Mercedes Sprinter and converted it from the ground up. We made several unforgettable trips and memories in that baby, but as it turns out, it wasn't in the cards for us. Due to many unexpected (and v expensive) repairs, we threw in the towel and are in the process of buying a home in the great city of Fort Worth, TX.
The adventure doesn't end there, though. Our love for travel still burns very bright. We plan on buying a travel trailer ASAP. Follow our journey on Instagram: @carryonclementine.
Our personalities couldn't be more different!
Kallan is the free spirit. She is enthusiastic, wild, and laughs at a higher decibel level than most people. She loves all things vintage and is the definition of a social butterfly. We promise you that she will be the goofiest one in the room.
Dustin is mister cool, calm, and collected. He enjoys playing music and learning anything and everything via YouTube vids. He sees logic in everything and is guaranteed to make you laugh with his dry and unexpected humor. In the famous words of Chandler Bing, "I'm not great at the advice. Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?"
