Happy Birthday Tulle Wedding Skirts!

photo-3That’s right! This little blog turns one today! A whole year has gone by since I posted my first post — so in honor of the past year, I thought I’d do a little year in review.tutu pic 2It all started with a visiona passion for weddings — and a lot of ballet in my veins.

I created Mood Board Mondays (my favorite board above) — which proved to be a great way to showcase various wedding themes & trends.

There were various series of posts including: Trending, Today’s Tulle and My Best Friend’s Wedding Series, which took us through Danielle’s wedding planning journey. I also created a few How-to’s and DIYs including: the perfect eyebrow shaping, the perfect ribbon bouquet and the perfect whiskey ginger.

KWP-kerrycolinwedding-1531The Real Weddings features proved to be the most popular posts — as I knew they would be. I had the pleasure of working with so many amazing brides — Elizabeth, Heather, Jamie, Caroline, Erica, Erin, Katie, Callie, Danielle, Kerry & Mallory — and can’t wait to feature the brides I have in the pipeline! Thank you all!
(Colin & Kerry’s wedding, above, was definitely a highlight of 2014 for me)IMG_2535Brides & Bubbly was born! In partnership with Work it Out, I created a series of bridal events for local brides to come out, meet new vendors and share a glass of bubbly or two. We hosted five events — and will be back with more in 2015. Stay tuned!

Paulie and I also celebrated our one year anniversary in September — and I can’t thank him enough for his continued support of me and this blog.

It’s been one heck of a year, with a fair share of ups and downs. But I have so much to be grateful for from starting my little blog — and so much to be grateful for in my life. Thank you for sticking with me readers — I owe it all to you!

{local vendors} Sweet Dani B

I know I’ve mentioned before how great it is to see the small businesses of Hoboken supporting each other — But I’ve just got to say how much I love Hoboken!

This new-to-me vendor is nothing short of sweet… I’m so happy I get to share Sweet Dani B with all of you today and spotlight her sweet couture cookies! Take a look — They’re {almost} too pretty to eat!

IMG_3353When Dani found out about our one year anniversary, she basically jumped at the chance to create this gorgeous, and oh-so-appropriate, cookie box.

IMG_3360I just about squealed when she surprised me with these. I mean how adorable are the ballerina and bride?! Not to mention, the little details – and edible glitter!

Whether you’re wedding planning, shower planning or party planning, be sure to check out Sweet Dani B. She’ll create custom cookies as favors, desserts or wedding cake toppers! Besides the couture cookies, Dani also does custom paper goods.

Dani will be joining us at our next Brides & Bubbly — So if you’re in town, come to Luxe Face and Body next Wednesday, September 17 at 7pm for a sweet affair!

Thank you so much for the special cookies, Dani — You made my day!

One Year

Yesterday marked our one year anniversary — and what a year it has been! It’s funny though how time messes with your head — Sometimes it’s crazy to think how fast the past year went, and other times it feels like it’s been a lot longer than a year.

Either way, it’s all good and I’m excited to see what the next year has in store for us! Life isn’t always easy, but it’s certainly better with Paulie by my side. I couldn’t do it without him. Happy Anniversary babe! Cheers to us and to many more!

In honor of one year, I thought I’d share some favorite wedding photos that haven’t made it to the blog yet. Take a look at all our wedding photos here.
