The Background

Hi ladies and welcome to One to Wed! I started this blog four years ago as a hobby but since getting engaged at the beginning of this year and struggling to plan what seemed like wedding details that I would have decided on years ago, I wanted to change the direction of my blog and make it most useful for brides like me both stylistically but also based on physical location.

I found it SO difficult looking through countless online vendor reviews from everything from reception venue to florist and videographer. I found reviews on The Knot and Wedding Wire to be useful but hard to narrow my search to fit what I was looking for stylistically.

So then I turned to other blogs. I went to one that I knew I could count on for content {thanks Style Me Pretty for being AMAZING} but at the same time, there is SO much content that I was back to hours of researching for everything - and at this point I was still searching for a venue! While I loved the amazing real weddings on the site and was most inspired by them, it was tricky to use them specifically for wedding venues. While I searched for Tri-State area/New York City/New Jersey there was still an overwhelming number of options. 

That leads me here! In trying to re-focus a hobby I've cared about for so long, I wanted to make it most useful for other Tri-State area brides to help find everything from venues, to wedding cakes based on similar stylist preferences and other real weddings before us.

Here is a little more about our story and journey to the aisle so far - what I would recommend {and not recommend} to keep your head in order :)

The Proposal

Anthony and I met online (I would say "believe it or not", but these days, seems like it's the most common way of meeting people :) Fast forward almost three years and Anthony popped the question last January on the Brooklyn Bridge Promenade (not far from the apartment we share in Carroll Gardens).
