Style Me Pretty on Access Hollywood!

Yep, you read that right. SMP was on Access Hollywood! THE Access Hollywood, as in the one with big, fancy pants celebrities and Billy Bush and Kit Hoover and oh my gosh, I still can't believe it happened! The only downside? It aired in the midst of the Boston bombings so we're thinking that a lot of you didn't get a chance to see it. But not to fret, we have all of the behind the scenes dirt for you today.

As I sit here at my computer on a otherwise normal Monday afternoon, tears are slowly trickling down my face. Those tears?

Montana Farm Wedding from Jose Villa + Joy Thigpen Part II

You know, we are lucky. Like really lucky. Because our job is to write about beautiful moments. The kind of moments that people remember forever and ever. And if we're being really honest, it feels a little unfair.
