Wedding tips from past brides can be so helpful in planning your own wedding.
Today’s wedding tips comes from my past bride Ceasarine, who created a gorgeous wedding! In fact, so gorgeous that her wedding has been chosen by four publications so far!
CEASARINE – The wedding day goes by very fast and is over before you know it- so make sure to slow down, take it all in and enjoy because you have all your loved ones celebrating this day with you. Also steal as many private moments as you can with your new husband .. we did this while dancing, during dinner and a few times between the ceremony and reception.
TESS – So true! I hear this from brides all the time. Sometimes they feel like the day was a “BLUR”. This is another reason photographs are so important. Capturing every detail, even the ones you may not remember. A “first look” is a wonderful way to have a private moment with your future spouse. The feedback from couples that choose this option has been very positive.
Ceasarine & Anthony’s Wedding Featured on Borrowed & Blue!
What a truly sweet and amazingly gracious couple. I couldn’t be more happy that their colorful wedding is featured on Borrowed & Blue today!
I loved their bright colors and the way they brought their African heritage details to their beautifully designed wedding! I’ve never seen such a happy bride. She glowed and smiled the entire day! And why not, she married an amazing guy!
Congratulations Ceasarine & Anthony to your first feature, with more coming.

Motherhood is the greatest gift & my ultimate joy!
Growing up my mom didn’t seem to enjoy motherhood very much. She viewed children as a burden. Hugs & I love you’s were so rare, I barely remember a one. Home was not a “safe” place of unconditional love & acceptance. It’s been 22 years since my mother and I have spoken.
When I found out I was pregnant many years ago, understandably, I feared motherhood. What if I am not a loving mother? What if I see children as a burden? After all, my Grandmother (my mom’s mom) didn’t seemed to like children either. What if it’s hereditary to not like motherhood?
Sandra & Garret’s Elizabethan garden wedding featured on East Carolina Bride
What Can I say, this wedding was one of my favorites from last year. It was a fabulous road trip to the outer banks for the week-end! AND this amazing couple in a gorgeous dream wedding location!! Have I mentioned that I LOVE MY JOB!! I was so excited that East Carolina Bride chose to also feature this gorgeous couple’s wedding in the Elizabethan Gardens, Manteo, North Carolina (near the outer banks).
Everything was PERFECT about this wedding. I am so thrilled for Sandra & Garret, that they get to share their love, their story and their wedding with brides from anywhere! To see the feature HERE to see their full blog post click HERE.
