Our wedding vendors

Yes, I work in social media marketing, but nothing beats word-of-mouth (WOM) marketing. Which is why I trust my friends and online contacts more than a review I’d find on theknot.com or any of the other bajilion bridal websites out there. That’s why each and every one of our vendors was referred to me by […]

Pinch me…we both got hitched!

This summer year has been CRAZY NUTSO in the best way possible. I married my best (man)friend and my lifelong partner-in-crime wed the guy that makes her the happiest. MacKenzie and I may have kissed a few frogs in our day, but I think we did something right winding up with our dudes.

Since my […]

A Hawaiian Honeymoon

After the best day and night of our lives, Dean and I knew our adventure was just beginning. For starters, we had (have) the roller coaster of life ahead of ourselves. Not to mention, we were heading to Maui for 12 (TWELVE!) days of tropical-paradise-Heaven. I could go on. And on. And on. And I […]

I’m married!

You guys! I’m really a Coticchia. I had the absolute time of my life on July 13, 2013 & want to scream it from the rooftop! I have so much to share from our incredible day from the DIY projects we worked on all year to the beautiful bridesmaids dresses and everything in-between!

Since we […]

I survived my Kelley’s Island bachelorette party

When you take one part lifelong pals, a sprinkle of awesome friends made over the past 4 years, a few family members & a bunch of girls that love boats and put them on an island, I can guarantee you it’s a good time. At least it was for my last hoorah on Kelley’s Island!


Wedding Wednesday: Shower #2 (this is really happening)

Hi! When I said I was going to be MIA this spring & summer, I wasn’t lying. Life is cray.cray.cray. But life is great. And for the record, I am still getting married! In about 5 weeks. omgomgomg.

Speaking of getting hitched, remember back in December when my mom & bridesmaids threw me quite the […]

Running woes & wedding excitement

I get it. I’ve been a bad blogger, again. Sometimes work and planning a wedding just takes precedence.

I’ve also been a bad runner. For the past three years I’ve ran the Cleveland Half Marathon. It’s given me something to look forward to and filled my Saturdays with obligatory long runs and not necessary carb-loading. […]

Wedding Wednesday: Save the Dates!

Our save the dates have been out for a while now. We wanted to incorporate what we love most (sunshine, boating & our pup!).

The front:


The back:

I cropped out a sliver of the bottom of the back so all my stalkers can’t have access to our wedding website. Kidding. Sort […]

Wedding Wednesday: Valentine’s Day Edition

Dean and I (especially me) are not the most loviest-doviest, mushiest & PDA-prone couples out there. Quite the opposite actually…to each their own, right? However, I thought what better week (and year) to give thanks and look forward to the hunky guy I’m marrying in a mere FIVE months!

The wedding is quickly approaching and […]

Bridal Shower #1

Back in September when my bridesmaids had the idea to have my bridal shower over the holidays, I was all for it since they’d all be in town and would not have to travel to CLE solely for my shower at a later date. Some people thought my mom was nuts to host 40 women […]
