Who am I? I am a researcher, a planner, and an organizer…I spend my days researching & writing in academia (i.e. grad school), and many nights scouring the wedding world with the same thoroughness. When I am not researching/writing/studying, you can find me playing with my puppies, experimenting with new recipes, and hanging out with the soon-to-be husband.
I believe weddings should feel authentic to each couple, should reflect their everyday lives, and that the marriage is always the best part. I adore the pretty, I need the heartfelt, and I always cry at weddings (even those on Glee…). Mostly I believe that weddings are not defined by your budget, but rather by understanding your options. Too often I see brides picking something because they feel it’s (a) the only thing they can afford, (b) it’s the only ‘proper’ way to do a wedding, or (c) because they don’t have the time to explore other options. Helping brides realize and choose among their options will be a reoccurring message here.
Why Buttercream? It’s the perfect combination of fresh, sweet, and practicality. Not as stuffy as its cousin fondant, and absolutely delicious. 🙂
