The Road to Mrs. – I’s Married Now!

Our resident bride-to-be Keisa is officially a Mrs.!

After an 18-month engagement and 15 months of wedding planning, our wedding date finally arrived! All of the budgeting, saving, to-do lists, planning and minimal stress paid off bigly – ha! Our wedding was absolutely amazing. The weather was perfect, food was good, DJ was jumping and love was definitely in the air. However, even the best laid plans sometimes go astray…but I’ll get back to that. [Read more…]

The Road to Mrs. – Keisa’s Favorite Things

Well folks, we are 21 days out! Unbelievable, right? If you would have asked me 6 months ago how I envisioned my last 21 days leading up to our wedding, I definitely would have said “cruising”. So, um, that’s not my reality. In fact, things are in overdrive and I’m trying not to lose myself in all of the details —thankfully Vlad, my Mom, my wedding planner Christina and my best girls are keeping my wig straight and nerves in tact!

The Road to Mrs. – The Reality of Pinterest When Wedding Planning


Oh, Pinterest. It’s easy, addictive and a seemingly unlimited resource for um, everything! The fact that it allows you to create “secret” boards (which is perfect for planning your wedding even before you have a steady boo) is more than enough reason to looooove it!

The downside, when it comes to planning a wedding, [Read more…]

BLACK BRIDAL BLISS 2016 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE – Mahogany Essence Brooms

day5brooms

From the time I first learned about the rich history of jumping the broom, I knew I wanted to incorporate the beloved tradition into my own wedding. However while planning my 2013 nuptials, I found that the options are quite limited for brooms created with this purpose in mind. (The company that provided my wedding day broom has since gone out of business.)

Enter…Mahogany Essence! [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:

Tie the Knot Tuesday Flashback – Akida + Ken

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

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…]
