Meet Kim and William! The handsome couple shares their stylish engagement session with Triple B today for (Not Quite) Tie the Knot Tuesday. The duo was shot by the talented Chad Pennington — remember this steamy e-session he captured? Kim and William are planning to wed in Northern New Jersey this fall. They decided to shoot this e-session in NYC’s trendy Meatpacking District because they often frequent the area for dates. I decided to let the pics speak for themselves so there are no captions today; none needed. Enjoy and be sure to check out Kim’s fierce shoes!
Skilled photographer Leonard Poteat landed yet another lovely pair of nearlyweds to shoot for memorable Washington, D.C. engagement portraits. Poteat is a friend of Triple B — feel free to revisit some of his past work here. Remember this innovative camping themed e-session he shot? Now meet Jessica and Kevin, who are scheduled to say “I Do” later this month, in the below gallery and be sure to leave a comment sharing which pic is your fave. Jessica and Kevin began their fun e-session at D.C.’s sleek Hotel Monaco before making a few other stops in the area including Red Velvet Cupcakery. (Confession: They’re all pretty fab but the cupcake ones left me swooning.) Enjoy! [Read more...]

Yesterday was Thanksgiving here in the good ole US of A and most Americans celebrated with a big turkey dinner and all the trimmings. I’ll spare you my conflicted views on the holiday but without question I have a lot to be thankful for and I’m sure most of you do, too. Traditionally, Thanksgiving is a big deal in my family and I grew up celebrating it to the nines, right along with Christmas. But my fiance? Not so much. Thankfully we’re pretty much on the same page with these holidays now — at our cores anyway — even if it doesn’t seem like it to outsiders. My future husband isn’t big on huge, screaming labels — on people, clothes or holidays. And I’m beginning to adopt many of the same philosophies he has on the commercialization of the holiday season I cherished as a child. However, that doesn’t mean my family has changed their views and this could potentially be a major problem down the road. YIKES! [Read more...]
Since my last post about my upcoming wedding, my fiance and I have made some small yet significant progress. We’ve narrowed down the area we want our nuptials to take place and our wedding day budget plus we zeroed in on a time frame. We’re also continuing those sometimes challenging conversations about combining finances and being truthful about our expectations after exchanging I Do. There’s still lots to do physically and emotionally but we’re both up for it and enjoying the ride.
However there’s one wedding planning element that is probably the most personal and I’m thinking about it more these days. I don’t think I’ve mentioned in my two + years of maintaining Triple B but my father is deceased. He passed away in my teen years. Before he did we were very close. [Read more...]
