The NookWelcome to my little nook, a corner in Bride and Breakfast where we can talk (as in really talk!) about the other faces of weddings and things. From tips, ideas and the nitty gritty of the wedding world, it’s a place where I share my everyday musings, ramblings of what I am passionate about, the technicalities of blogging, bridal and vendor culture, and an occasional peek at my life in and out of B&B. – Janna

The Nook: Weddings and Meetings

Posted by Janna Simpao

It’s always such a treat to go to destination weddings since it means a quick holiday for me. A few days ago, my husband Ian and I celebrated our 3rd year anniversary.
