And the countdown begins! I am just three days away from my wedding and this weekend my friends and family did a great job sending me off to the great uknown—married life.
We had cocktails at a lounge, dinner at a restaurant, and dancing at a club...in other words, it was perfect! I’m sharing some photos (the ones I can post anyway) to walk you through my girl’s...

I am just 10 days away from my wedding and I’m finally starting to get a little nervous! Not necessarily because of the commitment I’m making to the love of my life, but because I want to make sure I get all the little things done for the wedding. I have been so on point with checking things off my list that I don’t want to forget anything now.
I know, I know, it’s...

After being rescheduled three times, my bridal shower finally happened and it was totally a success!! I couldn’t have asked for a better time spent with the women I love. The day was filled with surprises, games, heartfelt wishes, a little crying, and of course unlimited mimosas. Here are some photos to recap the lovely brunch bridal shower. I hope you can feel the love...

Although I must admit I haven't really been going by a legit "to-do" list like most brides, I think I've been doing pretty well keeping everything organized and getting things done.
The time is coming for me to start my seating chart and while I was planning to do it the old school way of laying out my RSVP cards on a table and mapping it out, my fiance (he's way...

I am a strong believer in people really owning their craft and showing their talents by being their own #1 spokesperson. For example, as a fashion editor it would be a sin for me to walk around wearing high-water wide leg jeans, so naturally when looking for my make-up artist the first thing I did instead of looking at their portfolio is look at them. It amazes me to see so...

As you all know a few months back I postponed my wedding date. As a result, I had to decide how I wanted to follow-up with my guests to notify them of the new date for my big day. I really didn’t want to do the website thing because I simply don’t like it, so I caved in and ordered some simple laser print invites. I felt it was important for the new invite to be...

When thinking of a perfect father/daughter song to dance at my wedding, what comes to mind is an old school salsa song. I know some of you may think it’s a bit impersonal and not typical father/daughter music to dance to, but there are several reason why a salsa song is very fitting for my papi and I. Many of my childhood memories were of me watching and being in awe of my...

The time has finally come when I get to do fun stuff like figuring out what hairdo I want for my wedding day! I’m exposed to so many amazing hair and make-up artists that I think I might be a little more picky than the average bride, so I wanted to make sure I chose the right person. I’m not difficult to work with, but I do have a vision and I decided I didn’t want a very...
