Hello everyone. This the first post of the Modern Bride Guide. I should probably introduce myself. My name is Autumn, and I’ve been sucked into the wonderful world of weddings.
It didn’t start in my childhood. I wasn’t one of those girls who dreamt about their fantasy wedding since the age of six. I got sucked in at a later date and for different reasons.
It started with a photography obsession which began at age twelve. I love photography (portrait photography specifically) and photographed my first wedding when I was 19. I am also crazed over printing presses, design programs, and fonts. Photographing brides, stationery, details, decor, and design? Now, that puts me over the top.
It was when I got engaged that I realized a wedding is where all my favorite things got tied together. Yes, I wanted to marry my husband who I love dearly, but damn did I love planning my wedding! I decided to drop my conventional day job (enginerding) and step into the wonderful world of weddings. I now own Modern Girl Invitations, an online boutique that sells modern wedding invitations and stationery.
With the Modern Bride Guide I plan on adding one more fun element to my mix of wedding activities, as well as providing some good resources for all you modern brides out there along the way. I hope you’ll come back and visit me again and listen to my musings.
