so About a Bride was on hiatus for a little…why?? well, avid readers of this blog know that it was “About a Baby” for a little. Yes, there is a new little associate in this business and his name is Eliel. He’s now 4 months and ready to help out on those Fall weddings! 🙂

Stay connected with this blog and the About a Bride website as there are plenty of new things coming this Fall.

Also, congrats to Sonnobia and Deo on their wedding — it was spectacular!

As always, I welcome your emails and inquiries.

Awesome Movie about Marriage….

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 4:09 pm by aboutabride

Obviously, the wedding comes first….but after that, the two of you have a marriage to build. And from personal experience, no matter who you are or what your background is/was, this takes a lot of work, patience, love, grace and encouragement.

I recently found out that a Christian movie, called Fireproof, came out last weekend. It’s about strengthening your marriage and putting the right priorities in place. The tagline: “Caleb is an amazing fireman. But is it too late to fireproof his marriage? His job is to rescue others. Now Caleb Holt is ready to face his toughest job ever…rescuing his wife’s heart”.

Since I found out that this small-indi-film was only playing for a week in a very limited number of theatres, my husband and I went to the late show, driving the 45 mins past Buffalo. AND IT WAS SO WORTH IT! There was only one other couple in the theatre, but, it was an amazing movie — it makes you laugh and it will definitely make you cry tears of both sadness and joy!

If you happen to miss it this week, be sure to rent it when it comes out on DVD!

Here is what people had to say (from the website):

“I’ve spent my entire life trying to win in two different pro sports. What I appreciate about FIREPROOF is that it’s an entertaining and challenging reminder of what it takes to win in marriage!”
Joe Gibbs, Owner, Joe Gibbs Racing

“Amazing! Action-packed, heartwarming, and a great resource to help strengthen and affirm marriages!”
Dr. Gary Smalley, author of Change Your Heart, Change Your Life

“FIREPROOF is an excellent film that makes marriage-commitment real and attainable with Christ’s grace.”
Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, Archdiocese of Louisville

“On top of a powerful message and the potential to change lives and marriages, this is one great movie!”
Bubba Cathy, Senior Vice President, Chick-fil-A

As a wedding consultant, you hear very often brides stating they want to stand out, to have memorable weddings, to surprise their guests. I completely agree with them, of course…You want a beautiful wedding, to have the magnificent ideas in your head to come to life, to have something unexpectedly beautiful…

Well, here are some pics of some interesting wedding dresses. Dresses come in all sizes, colors and can be the start to a completely different theme. I thought this was a good way to start the week and get the creative juices flowing….

Enjoy…and tell me, which would YOU wear on your wedding day?
