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!

Fancy Friday

balloon tasselsI love any excuse to throw a party — and between the birthdays, bachelorettes and showers this summer my party planning skills are being put to the test! But I (not-so-secretly) love it!

It’s birthday central over here (Hello June babies!) — and a few birthday shout outs are in order.

Last weekend it was all about this girl — and my DIY photo booth skills were put to the test. But this lady’s birthday didn’t go unnoticed either.

Today is this past bride’s birthday!

This weekend we’ll be celebrating my favorite snowboarders — and be thinking of my sissie-to-be in Chicago!

Happy birthday girls!!

It’s a big weekend for these two… One college graduation + one 30th birthday + one Monday off = Three pretty fun days of MDW 2014. Let the party begin!

Congratulations to my baby sister on her graduation day! And a very, happy birthday to my handsome husband! You both rock my world — and I love you both more than you know! As Paulie would say, Shots of Patrón for the table!
