Riding in Style {Linder & Associates}

This past week I helped my dear friend Linda at Linder and Associates find a great photo of one of our brides with/in/around a limo for an upcoming magazine ad in Engaged!  We found this fun one of our bride, Elisabeth Hahn, who got married last summer.  I love that Elisabeth is chilling out in the limo on the way to meet her groom for some pre-wedding photos!

The whole search made me think that wedding day transportation isn't something that brides usually put a lot of time into but it's one of the most crucial aspects of the wedding day flow.  Late limousines, lost limousines, broken-down limousines.  These are all things that can ruin your wedding day if you don't hire the right company. 

I am very particular about transportation companies because I've seen too many disasters and had to fix too many limo problems.  Which is why I use Linder and Associates so consistently. I've worked with Linda for years is she is one of the most organized and detailed people I've ever met.  She won't just book cars for you, she walks you through the entire day to make sure that the transportation and routes work.  She'll arrange limos, classic cars, valet and just about anything that involves moving people. 

Thanks for getting our brides to the church on time for so many years, Linda!

Jorge Manuel at Hitched {Trunk Show}

The bridal industry is buzzing over hot new designer Jorge Manuel, and you're invited to see his gowns in person during the Jorge Manuel Bridal Gown Trunk Show at Hitched on Friday, January 28th & Saturday, January 29th!

Jorge Manuel is a fresh Miami-based designer, and his young, fun personality is certainly reflected in his unique design aesthetic. His gowns are both architecturally modern and classically chic, creating a fashion-forward feel that is truly his own.
