Didn't your mother always tell you that when you hang around happy people, at the end of the day you'll be happier ... and when you hang around grumpy people, you end up grumpy! Well, the same goes for planning your wedding. Surround yourself with folks who love what they do for a living ~ the wedding professionals who will bring all the expertise of their years and can't keep the smiles off their faces and we guarantee, you'll walk away with that same grin plastered across your face at the end of this momentous day! We ~ at Style Me Pretty ~ want to do just that for you! We want to surround you with some guys and gals who have devoted their lives to making brides and grooms happy ~ their own joy is infectious!! And on The Little Black Book Blog ~ we are taking just one more opportunity to showcase their work. The features on the LBB blog aren't FOR THEM ... they're FROM THEM TO YOU! So sit back, relax and enjoy a few previews from this week's line-up on Abby's Little Black Book Blog!

Kitty and Craig of Twin Lens Photography helped make Adrianne & Stephen's New Mexico wedding a day that was the best! "Thanks to our vendors, our wedding day was a complete success. We were relaxed and because we trusted our vendors so much, we were able to enjoy our wedding day to its fullest!"

An excerpt from Wednesday's feature (from Weddings by Windy) ... I'm one of those people who firmly believes in fate, destiny & that EVERYTHING happens for a reason. I love retracing steps in any event figuring out "if this didn't happen like this, then that wouldn't have happened, etc." I also understand, however, that not everyone is on that bus. But I think even the biggest naysayer would have agreed after seeing the shots of Katie & Lee's October 9th, 2010 ceremony at Veritas Vineyards in Afton, VA outside of Charlottesville. We had about 90+ guests we had to transport from 2 hotels in 2 different parts of the Charlottesville area. One in the city of Charlottesville - The Marriott, and the other from the Best Western in Waynesboro, VA. Of course, the bus carrying the majority of the 90 guests coming from the Marriott... broke down prior to picking anyone up! And it happened at about 5:00 for a 6:00 ceremony! If EVER there is a reason to pay good money for a great venue, great photographers and to have a wedding planner on site - this was it. Into crisis mode we went ...
