I recently had the opportunity to work with Amanda from Ruffled Blog. Even before we started working together I loved her blog. She features such beautiful weddings and other vintage goodies. I appreciate that she knows just who she wants to cater to and stays true to that. You may or may not know that she recently added a Classified section to her site. Unlike other classifieds, Ruffled’s is geared like her site, to the bride that wants to incorporate a vintage feel or vintage items. Bride and Grooms whether they are newly engaged or newlyweds can log on to the section and buy and sell vintage inspired items. What a concept! Its a perfect venue for those newly married to unload all of the milk glass they had to have but will never use again and likewise the bride still planning can snatch it up and a lovely vintage cake stand. The classified section will totally help those who are seeking charming used items find them faster than combing through flea markets and antique stores. If you are a bride looking to create a wedding full of storied charm, one looking to sell of a palate of cobalt vases or just someone who loves beautiful images, you must visit ruffled blog! You can follow Amanda Here to stay up to date on what new loveliness is on the site.
Today on Ruffled, Amanda is featuring a fab photo shoot done this week with former ABC’s The Bachelorette contender Kiptyn, styled by the ever creative Lollipop Events and Design and shot by John Schnack . The couple looks amazing, especially Kiptyn’s counterpart who is donning Alisa Benay’s Mirabelle gown. This gown is a part of a fabulous charitable initative called 100 brides for 100k. Alisa donates one thousand dollars from the sale of each Mirabelle to breast cancer research. Its perfect for the bride who wants to give back. The photos just scream romance! Speaking of the Bachelorette, if you happened to have missed yesterday’s post of Jillian Harris’ engagement shots, you can see them here!
In other very very exciting news one of my very favorite blogs, Kiss the Groom will turn one year old on Valentine’s Day! Happy Happy early Birthday Elizabeth! So fitting that it is the on Valentines Day since you are continually sharing images of pure, unadulterated love. Your blog is a continual source of inspiration to me and the wedding industry is a better, more beautiful and enriched place because you are a part of it! If you are not a regular reader or have never visited Kiss the Groom (I find this highly unlikely) run your little fingers over there immediately and feast your eyes on some of the most gorgeous images you may ever see. No I am not being dramatic…trust me!
