And So We Meet…

Ed note: I love featuring real weddings here on EAD, but what I love even more is when brides stop by to give us a full recap of their event, start to finish, in their own words.  This week, the lovely Christine from c is for charmed will be recapping her Buffalo wedding – look out all week for her posts!


Hello all! I’m so excited to be guest blogging this week for EAD. Wedding blogs were my source of overwhelming inspiration and served as my soundboard as my now husband, Jon and I planned our wedding. Jon and I got engaged on a my sister and father’s birthday (June 18th) and were married a little over a year later on August 29th in my hometown of Buffalo NY.

But let me tell you about us. My name is Christine, and my husband Jon and I live in New York City. I work as a publicist while he is a landscape architect. We met on public transportation on our way to work one fateful summer day. Three and a half years have passed since that day and we could not be happier! But let’s move on to some details!

Jumping into the planning process, I set out to create a DIY vintage inspired affair in Buffalo all while planning long distance from NYC. I found my dress on my lunch break, my bridesmaids dresses were from department stores and I made all of the paper products for our big day – anything but what I consider to be a traditional bridal experience!
