My Amazing (and BLISSFUL) Moment *SPONSORED POST*

Us...A couple of hours before getting engaged.

Us…A couple of hours before getting engaged.

September 15, 2012. I will never forget that date. It is the day my now husband proposed. It was a beautiful late summer afternoon. The temperature was in the mid-80s. Warm but not too hot. He requested I wear a dress. I obliged and rocked some heels for good measure too. We got an early start and headed to one of my favorite NYC chill spots, Fort Tryon Park in upper Manhattan. We took pictures of each other, asked strangers to take pictures of us together, took pics of the gorgeous scenery, flirted, kissed, laughed and just enjoyed each other.

In hindsight, he must have been drowning in anxiety knowing what he was planning to do later in the day. [Read more…]

Knock, knock: Anslem hangs out with wife Starrene’s belly.

While many dismiss Father’s Day as another lame form of societal pressure to spend money, we like using this time to celebrate something we’re extremely passionate about here: Family. Rather than featuring a gift guide, Black Bridal Bliss convinced first-time father-to-be Anslem Rocque to open up about life since learning he would be a parent. Anslem is no stranger to Triple B, we’ve showcased both his engagement session and wedding. Now, there’s a Lil’ Rocque on the way! Keep reading for an honest take from a real husband on protecting his pregnant wife, leaning on his circle of male friends and keeping the good stuff about his family off social media.   [Read more…]

Tie the Knot Tuesday Flashback – Kesha and Steven

Kesha and Steven: Easy Elegance in Marlaynd!

Kesha and Steven: Easy Elegance in Maryland!

One of the things we enjoy about weddings here at Black Bridal Bliss is that although there are many similarities in each, every single one is distinctive. Take the nuptials of Kesha and Steven of Maryland, for instance (we initially featured them in Tie the Knot Tuesday last year). While their wedding on the surface seemed classic and pretty traditional, it in fact was injected with several unique touches such as liturgical dancers during the ceremony and a surprise Latin-inspired first dance that even their wedding party didn’t know about! The best part? Their touching and relatable love story. Check it out:

2011 FLASHBACK: The Neelys said “I Do” in the “City of Brotherly Love”!

This feature is extra-special for Triple B (well, every Tie the Knot Tuesday wedding is but…) because of the sense of community it displays. Bride Akida was honest about not having an active relationship with her biological father and therefore opted to be escorted down the aisle by her longtime swim coach and mentor, Jim Ellis. “I attended college on a swim scholarship largely because of him,” she shared. Ellis is the same swim coach that the film Pride was based on (actor Terrance Howard played him in the movie). It takes a village. Remember, Triple is is bigger than weddings. Enjoy today’s  [Read more…]
