Ahhhh!!! It’s finally January 2nd…the day we told you all to mark your calendars for because we had a BIG announcement!! And here it is…..we’re having TWINS!!!
Well, twin wedding blogs that is!! :) :)
This has truly been a labor of love putting these two sites together (working with the absolutely incredible Jennifer Olmstead for our logo design!) and one that we SO believe in. For so long, we’ve just been feeling that there should be a place on the web where classic, iconic weddings (and the gorgeous wedding photography that shows them off!) are celebrated. A place where stunning black & white images are not only accepted, they are highlighted. A place where the moments and emotion of the day are just as much the focus of the posts as the pretty details. Even more so. Because what we know is that there is a new generation of brides out there looking for inspiration on their wedding days. And our “Why” is to show them that long after the day is over and the details are packed away, it will be the moments, and the people, and the laughter, and the tears that they will want to remember. That it’s not just about how the day looked, but how the day felt that matters.
We looked around and felt like that was missing. So we went to work, and tried to do just that! Here is our manifesto:
We believe that Black Tie is a state of mind, not a state of budget. We believe in grandparents wedding pictures in silver frames. To remind us that whatever it is, it always started with love. We believe in elegance and grace and good manners. We believe in history, and legacy, and leaving something behind. We believe in emotion and moments, and rich black & white images that tell a story. We believe in Day 1 and Day 62 and a half years in. We believe that timeless always trumps trendy. And no matter what, there is no replacement for authenticity. Because more than anything what we believe is…classic never goes out of style.
So please join us in welcoming the newest part of our family: The Black Tie Bride & The Well Groomed Groom!! Your two-stop shop on the web for all things sophisticated, timeless, elegant & iconic weddings! Head on over & check us out, and be sure to add us to your blog readers & bookmarks because we’ll be updating both of these blogs two times a day with brand new inspiration for you to soak in. And while you’re there, be sure to check out the two contests we have running to help us spread the word!
Ahhh we are a bundle of nerves & totally freaking out over here! And I just pray we’re not the only two people reading along!! Which could very well happen.
But for right now, they’re here! And if we had cigars, we would totally pass them out!
