Weddings // April 8, 2015I love weddings -- in fact, I’ve actually become something of a wedding crasher. In the past three years I’ve attended maybe ten weddings. I was in the bridal party for three of them, two were destination weddings and one was on a boat. But in all of my wedding crashing, the reception of my dear friends Roderick Scott and Madia Hill was unlike anything I’ve…

Weddings // July 21, 2014Two months ago, my husband I were married in a small ceremony with friends and family on a ranch by the Carson river in Nevada. It was a balmy day filled with love, laughter and mishaps. I got stranded in a strip mall less than an hour before the ceremony (long story), one of the groomsmen forgot to pick up his tux, and the officiant came…
Weddings // March 24, 2014There are less than three months until my wedding and I just found my dress and I still have not sent out save the dates, or wedding invitations.

Wedding // October 21, 2013How couples ever planned their wedding before the internet is a mystery to me. When I was planning for my wedding I spent hours looking through websites to find ideas. I think I Googled wedding planning 1,000 times in 6 months! These websites not only serve as inspiration, but also as a comfort that TONS of other couples are in the same boat as you: planning…
Lifestyle // June 3, 2013When it comes to giving wedding gifts the best advice I can give is to stick with the couple's registry. As a new bride myself I know that a lot of time and thought goes into creating them and most of the time they include things that are needed to build the couple’s home together. You definitely don’t want to be that guest who gives a…
Weddings // February 24, 2013One of the biggest compliments a woman can ever receive is being asked to be someone’s maid of honor. It means that you are the one they trust to make sure their wedding day is the happiest day of their lives. It means that (minus the groom of course!) you are the one they want standing beside them during all of the festivities.  It also may…
Weddings // November 19, 2012When we think of honeymoons, we imagine ourselves reclined on a sunny beach and fully submerged in a state of pure bliss. The pictures we paint for ourselves are so naturally calming that we easily forget the effort that goes into creating such an unforgettable experience. Yes, it would be lovely if the perfect honeymoon came gift wrapped with a pretty bow and a bottle of…
March 26, 2012 First comes love, then comes marriage. But between those comes the day most women dream about their whole lives: the wedding day. Even if you have yet to find Mr. Right, chances are you've spent more than one boring lecture or slow day at the office daydreaming about the designer gown you'll walk down the aisle in, or the beachfront property where you'll say your vows. A wedding…
August 24, 2011 It must suck to be poor and in love. While most young couples are freaking out about racking up debt and scraping together pennies for their weddings, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are getting theirs paid for by airing it on TV and selling exclusive photos to magazines.  Making money on your own wedding?  Yes indeed, my friend.   Kim has already made her mark as somewhat of…
