The Wedding Podcast Network

Though I've mentioned this fantastic resource before, I thought it was time to send another shout-out into the universe. The Wedding Podcast Network is one of the coolest companies I've come across during my time in the bridal industry.

The WPN is basically an on demand internet "channel" (for lack of a better word) that offers free, super helpful, cutting edge advice to brides-to-be in the form of podcasts. You can listen to these podcasts on your computer--whenever the mood strikes-- and they are all totally free and chock full of resources, savvy points-of-view and just good ole information. Best of all, you can hear advice from some of the top professionals in the industry as well as real-life brides.

I was lucky enough to take part in the Wedding Podcast Network's Newlywedcast show today to talk about our wedding and life as a newly married couple. The show is not live yet (will post a link when it is), but it was so much fun to relive our special day and talk about all of the details.

If you are a bride-to-be, you absolutely must check out some podcasts. I'm truly addicted.

I'm back (I think)

It's been so long, I'm not even quite sure how to say hello again. My break lasted waay longer than planned, and in truth, I've been avoiding posting again because I was unsure if I could handle the pressure of putting one post out there and then feeling the added pressure of having to do the same thing the next day. But what the hell.

To catch everyone up:

I'm married! That's definitely the biggest and baddest news I have to share. Despite many complications and unexpected hiccups, the wedding was magical. It was really an unbelivable night and we really just had so much darn fun. Here are a few pics from our fantastic, sweet, insanely talented photographer Teness Herman:

These were taken by our friend Blake:

After the wedding we had a dreamy, two-week trip to Italy. We went to the Amalfi Coast, Florence and Tuscany, and boy was it hard to drag our asses on to that plane to come back.

For anyone who is seriously bored, you can feel free to check out our honeymoon slideshow here.

So, all in all, everything is pretty great. I have lots of changes and (possibly)exciting things brewing in my life and I'm looking forward to sorting it all out.

While we were away, Paper Mama was featured in Time Out NY Kids and Child (which was wonderfully convenient for me since I had shut down our online stores), but alas, we take the press when we can get it.

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving!
