I'm bursting with excitement to finally share what I've been working on for months: A Crimson Kiss! I decided it was time for a bit of rebranding ages ago, but it wasn't until I started to seriously think about my own wedding that I found a direction and perspective that was truly my own.
Weddings are the fascinating intersection of fashion, design trends, religious traditions and family heritage that have captured so many of us. Planning the happiest day of your life is no small undertaking, and as wedding bloggers, we share images or ideas that inspire and excite us, hoping that brides will find details they can't wait to include on their big day. I wanted to speak to brides like me who adore the classics, who pour over their grandmothers' wedding albums and F. Scott Fitzgerald novels. Girls who swoon over mint condition china patterns at Goodwill and coupe glass towers filled with bubbly. A Crimson Kiss is inspired by the weddings and debutante balls of the 40s, 50s and early 60s, by Normal Rockwell illustrations, and by brides who know there's nothing more stylish than a classic red lip.
I know the new look and destination is a big change; I'm still in shock myself every time I refresh the page. Bloggers make up the most incredibly supportive community, and I'm always so delighted when you take time to enjoy a wedding, scope out a pair of shoes or shake up a cocktail. The punches and peep toes won't be going anywhere, I promise, and I hope you all love the changes as much as I do!
