In New York….

by jacin on September 29, 2011

….these streets will make you feel brand new; big lights will inspire you…. {Rodney Smith Photography} That’s right, I’m in the city that never sleeps and it feels so good to be “home” back east, eating bagels and pizza and sipping bottom-of-the-pot Dunkin Donuts. Oh New York, I’ve missed you. My plans, besides eating, include: [...]


{slightly modified from How Joyful} You feel me? Just quit it. Brides and bloggers alike - stay true to your vision and don’t let anyone else derail you from your path. I think we’ve all done it, at least one time or another, and trust me: comparing yourself to others will not only bring you down, [...]


Happy Tuesday everyone! So today I have a video DIY for you, that the amazing Steph & Robin Killip of Bubblerock Studios shot for me while they were out here in SF. And don’t you worry, there’s plenty more in store where this came from - but today we’re focusing on tissue paper pom poms! Thank [...]

Sadly, we will not be spending our anniversary together, as Pat has a wedding in New York and I have to stay here for [...]


This is a question I get asked a lot: “who designed your blog?” To make a long story short, I designed everything on my blog, from the layout to the sidebar icons to the header, and Courtney Talbot designed my mason jar logo. I’ve been blogging for (oh my gosh, 2 years today!), but also [...]


One of my favorite parts about working with Jen & Chris was the fact that they are just wonderful people. You know, the kind of people who you can just tell are kind hearted the minute you meet them? When we met oh so long ago on that rainy day at Starbucks, we were both [...]


{Soul Mates Photo} Today’s tip is a quick one, referring to one of your biggest budget busters - the food and drinks! This is something I tell all of my brides (and engaged friends, for that matter!) - and it’s simple. When booking your venue, make sure to a) find out the deadline for final [...]
