Calligraphy at its Finest

I love discovering new talent! There are so many outstanding wedding vendors out there...but sometimes you meet one who truly LOVES their job!

I recently met a talented calligraphy artist, Jennifer Gillespie, owner of

What I love about Jennifer is that she is obsessed (in a good way!) with all things wedding related. She has a passion for calligraphy, but she also stays on top of current wedding trends and styles. She blogs, tweets, name it! She has ideas and loves sharing them with the wedding community. I admire her tenacity and her ability to promote not only her own work, but the work of other wedding design professionals. Simply put: she's a fabulous with whom I soon plan to work.

You really should check out her website ( She offers such a wide array of calligraphy styles to her clients. I've always loved the look of fine calligraphy...and Jennifer definitely delivers! Although she is located in Kentucky, she services the entire nation. Be sure to look her up when it's time for you to address your invitations, make place cards, table signs, etc.

Couture Wedding Gown Sketch Artist...Love it!

I recently received an email from an uber talented dress designer/sketch artist named Heather Miller. She creates custom bridal gown illustrations for current or former brides. The sketches make great anniversary gifts, wedding gifts, etc. Just a fresh and fun twist on the wedding gown sketch idea! I checked out her Etsy page ( and loved her work.

New Blog Directions! So Exciting!!!!

As you all know, we have been using our blog as a way to keep you updated on weddings, events, press, etc. I've been toying with some new blog ideas and basically, due to lack of time, they've all been put on the back burner. But I'm so pleased to announce that I'm finally able to take the blog in a new direction! We will still publish our event related announcements and all that fun wedding stuff you love, but I'm also going to start...for lack of a better advice section. Over the years, I have received countless emails from brides and grooms and mothers of the bride asking me for advice on specific wedding related issues they're facing. I wish I had the time to respond to them all, but it's just not possible. I can however, address some of the more popular questions/issues and share my responses here on our blog. By no means, do I consider myself an "expert" in event planning. I have however, been doing this for a really long time...and as a result I have learned some extremely helpful things that I'm more than happy to share with you all! I've also accumulated some insanely hysterical stories and anecdotes...but you'll have to buy my book to read those! (yes, I'm writing a book) I know what you're thinking..."another wedding planner book???" Well, don't worry, this project is also on a back burner and Lord only knows when that puppy will hit bookstores! :)

Keep an eye out, because my first advice blog will post in a few days...In the interim, I'm taking suggestions on what to title this new fabulous advice section. So please email me your ideas! Send them to

Thanks for reading!

Attention WWIIA Fans...The Wait is OVER!!! Whoohooo!

I'm so excited to announce that I'm currently filming another episode for next season's "Whose Wedding is it Anyway?" As many of you know, I took a little hiatus (did the whole become a momma/have a baby thing) but now I'm back! By the way, thanks to everyone for their super sweet emails. I'm a huge fan of the show too and I'm uber thrilled we're filming!!!!
While I'm not allowed to release any juicy details...I will say that I'm working with the fabulous Kevin Covey from Los Angeles and we have an absolutely adorable bride and groom. That's right...WE have ONE couple and we're splitting the job of planning their wedding! It's really a unique format and I couldn't be more excited about filming. We will be in NYC all week shooting, but I'll try to update the blog later in the week with more pics! For now, please enjoy some shots from the last two days.

Congratulations to Stacey and Radek!

Last weekend PBW clients Stacey and Radek tied the knot at the beautiful Patriot Hills in Stony Point, NY. I had such a great time working with the fun loving couple! Their colors and design were unique and inspiring. Stacey had an amazing eye for detail and I really enjoyed collaborating with her!
