Our Fall Contest- "Fall in Love"

Autumn officially began at around 5am Friday morning, 9/23. And although it may not seem like it outside right now...(its about 80 degrees in NYC), Fall is here and its almost October. For many who know The Blissful Bride, October is her favorite month for two reasons..her wedding anniversary is coming up on October 6th, and her birthday is at the end of the month on October 25th. October is a month of change for BBW&E as well. After mulling over and debating changes, we are going to be updating our site very soon to reflect those changes and by October 31st, the packages will change slightly as well as our A La Carte options (which we believe our future couples will enjoy as well).

But before the changes occur, The Blissful Bride is having a "Fall in Love" Contest which ends October 22nd.

What was the exact moment that you fell in love with your significant other and knew he was the one you were gonna marry?

Sachiko and Ryan-Tarrytown House Estate 6.25.11

Its been crazy busy here at The Blissful Bride as we are going to be making some changes to our site in the coming weeks and have been working with several brides. Here are some pictures that will be featured on our site. xo <3 The Blissful Bride

I checked the weather daily the week of (alright, I admit it, I checked it every 3 hours the day before) and when I woke up the day of Sachiko and Ryan's wedding, I was pleased that the sun was out. When I walked out the door though it had grown cloudy and I grew a little worried because here was this beautiful couple that wanted to get married in this beautiful estate (a

destination away from crazy NYC) and they didn't need it to rain. There was a rain contingency plan in case for both the ceremony and cocktails, but we were all hoping for bright sunshine.
By the time I arrived with my assistant for the day, Olga (MUA/Hair extrordinaire of Colors of Fashions), the sun finally broke through. There was barely any humidity. But overall the day was set for sun and it stood that way all day, till the sun finally set around 8:30pm.
The bride, Sachiko, was stunning in her Vera Wang gown,  makeup done by Renee Lee and Sue from Metamorphosis and Ryan looked very sharp in his tuxedo, from the Men's Warehouse. The colors of the wedding were soft pink and white, with plenty of bling. When they shared their first look prior to the ceremony, Sachiko shed tears of joy and needed a touch up stat! They are truly meant for one another and it was evident in what they selected to be said during the ceremony and throughout the entire event.

We were so happy to be apart of their special day and wish them nothing but all the happiness in the world!
