Blogging: The B-List Meetup

Wanna hear all about my amazing weekend?

Last Saturday, I had the honor of being invited to the first ever B-List Conference for wedding bloggers, organized by Vané of Brooklyn Bride and Anne of From “I Will” to “I Do”.

About twenty-ish of us from across the country met up at the Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO, and had a chance  to chat and share ideas and tips about blogging and weddings.  So wonderful to finally meet and connect with some of my favorite bloggers in person!

We also had a meet and greet with some of New York’s finest vendors, while enjoying drinks and a catered lunch by Sterling Affair.

It was fun to meet all the fabulous photographers, floral designers, invitation studios, and event planners.  Names that I would previously only read from all the blogs!

I love the little tote and cookie you got! And those flowers are gorgeous, the pinks in that bouquet definitely pop. What fun!

Oh, it just looks like so much fun! It’s so nice to see all the faces behind these wonderful blogs! And the Gift bags do look like heaven! Oh, I hope you got one of our little cameras. I didn’t see us on the list so I really hope they made it in the bag. I just did a post about them and the B-LIST! We were super excited to sponsor such a cool event for such an awesome group of women!
