Inspired Creations Contest II and Holiday Gift Exchange!
Elizabeth Anne Designs and The Sweetest Occasion are back with the latest Inspired Creations Contest and our first annual Inspired Creations holiday gift exchange!
Greetings from Phoenix!
Hello lovelies! I am so incredibly excited to be blogging here at EAD and sharing all my wedding inspirations, experiences and DIY trials and errors with you. Before getting engaged I was ‘secretly’ checking out wedding blogs, including EAD, for about a year (or twoâ€¦). I actually started my own little blog called Blissful Wish over a year ago as a way to show my invitation design work and share wedding and party ideas. I have been dreaming of my wedding for years! My grandparents founded a party rental business here in Phoenix, so I have been surrounded by event planning my entire life. Now that it is time to plan my wedding, my mom and I are going nuts picking out linens, table setups, colors and DIY projects.
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I was fortunate enough to attend the Engage!10 luxury wedding business summit at the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman last week.Â Created and produced by Rebecca Grinnals and Kathryn Arce of Engaging Concepts, the event was a chance to connect with many amazing friends, both old and new, in the wedding industry.
