Triple B Founder Bridgette Bartlett Jumped the Broom!

October 19, 2013 - Triple B The Remix: Bridgette's Bridal Bliss!

Well folks, the deed was done. On Saturday, October 19, 2013, I jumped the broom with my best friend in front of roughly 115 loved ones. (We actually wed a month prior in a much smaller ceremony — I promise to elaborate more on that later.) In a word, last weekend was bliss.

Mr. TK and I are still sleepwalking and aren’t scheduled to return to our normal (whatever that means) schedules until next week. Still, I wanted to give you all a glimpse into our nuptials to hold you over until the official Tie the Knot Tuesday feature next month. Below is hand’s down one of my favorite moments from the big day: [Read more...]

Tie the Knot Tuesday – Tamika & Juan

B-L-I-S-S!

Couple: Tamika & Juan
Wedding Date: April 14, 2013
Wedding Location: The Legare Waring House, Charleston, South Carolina
Theme: Love, Life & Us

Washington, D.C.-based bride Tamika became a friend of Triple B when she entered a photography GIVEAWAY we co-sponsored last year. Both Tamika’s individual accomplishments (she’s a 10+ year cancer survivor and founder of Tamika & Friends, Inc.) and collective accomplishments with Juan (Tamika fell in love with Juan and his daughter!) are impressive and gives even the biggest cynic hope that true love is still out there for all of us. This is much bigger than a wedding. Theirs is a story of survival, the value of life, the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit. Enjoy the trailer!

Tie the Knot Tuesday SPECIAL – Real Brides Share Their Money Saving Tips

Find out what advice savvy brides like Stephanie (above) have for the rest of us!

Since the last Triple B “Real Brides Share Money Saving Wedding Planning Tips” special, I started preparing for my own nuptials. Now, helping brides get the most bang for their bridal buck is even more of a priority (and I didn’t think that was possible) because I am seeing first hand how easy it can be to overspend when planning one’s own wedding. An extra $200 here, $75 for that and $300 here adds up quickly. This is an event attached to so much emotion, so it is easy to become disillusioned into thinking that the perfect wedding will lead to the perfect marriage. [Trust me, marketers prey on this fact.] Since overspending in some areas is almost inevitable for most brides, why not take tried and true advice from other women on how to at least minimize or balance things out a bit? Take notes!

Tie the Knot Tuesday – Weddings with Unique Cultural Touches

Bride Mirlaine enjoys waving her Haitian flag with guests during her wedding reception!

By now we (hopefully) all know the historical and cultural significance of jumping the broom during a wedding ceremony. However, it isn’t the only way for those of the African Diaspora to show their cultural appreciation during a wedding. Below is a round-up of past Tie the Knot Tuesday couples that found creative ways to inject a little dose of culture into their big day. Enjoy and be inspired! [Read more...]

Tie the Knot Tuesday (THROWBACK) – Nana & Akinola

Tie the Knot Tuesday presents: Nana & Akinola

This week’s Tie the Knot Tuesday is a flashback wedding trailer! Although the couple Nana and Akinola wed over three years ago, everything in this trailer is still relevant. As a planning bride myself, I find this inspiring because selecting decor, fashion and music for a timeless wedding trailer seems easy but is not an easy feat. Also take note of the couple’s inclusion of their African backgrounds (the bride is Ghanian and the groom Nigerian) at the end. Enjoy this treat and leave me a comment with your fave part of the video. [Read more...]

Tie the Knot Tuesday Video Trailer Special – Belinda & Kevin

Check out Kevin & Belinda's re-marriage after a 20 year divorce!

Some folks say what is meant to be, will be. That was certainly the case for Belinda and Kevin who had their recent Atlanta nuptials documented by Three Ring Media. This encore wedding (this is their second marriage to each other) took place over two decades after the twosome first met. While watching the video, it is obvious that these two were destined to be together again. Triple B wishes the newlyweds-again health, prosperity and all they happiness they can stand!

THROWBACK TUESDAY – Feel Good Wedding Trailer

There’s no Tie the Knot Tuesday for the next couple of weeks because Triple B is super-busy working on an exciting (yet time-consuming) project. I look forward to sharing the great news with you guys when the ink is dry! In the meantime, check out the below wedding trailer that originally was shared in Triple B TV. I haven’t a clue who Kendra and Gerald are but there is something very familiar about them. In this short snippet of their wedding day, it’s evident that there were plenty of sentimental moments, humor, dancing, food, friends and family. That’s my kind of party. And the way it was all captured on film are signs of a great videographer. My favorite scene is probably the end when the newlyweds are surrounded in a circle by who I assume are their family matriarchs. Seems like this couple’s marriage started off with a lot of support and who can’t appreciate that? Enjoy!
