Beauty and the Best

Almost every girl I know dreams of the fairytale wedding we so often see in movies or the pages of a bridal magazine. While some may have the luxury of splurging on their big day, others simply have to work within a budget. But do not fret, the beauty of a wedding is not really directly related to how much you spend for it. Aside from the priceless emotions of love and laughter, the trick really is in the style details. And that’s where B&B comes in.

Being a lover of all things beautiful, I hope to share with you my own wedding experience, the creme de la creme weddings and super gorgeous wedding-related things that can inspire you to get your style to the aisle. Whether you need to keep tabs on the expenses or it’s sky’s the limit for your big day, if it’s fresh, unique and pretty, it’s here!

But first things first! Let me introduce myself. I’m Janna and I love pretty things. Ever since I started planning my wedding, I simply got hooked on the beauty and creativity it requires. I constantly seek for inspiration in books, blogs and anything in between. I am blessed to be totally in love with my husband who is also my best friend. And a mom to our first little darling Matti who adds so much color to my life. I am passionate about style, wedding fashion, and anything artsy and elegant. I love to write, I love to daydream, and I love to be girly. As a wedding curator, I constantly strive to get ideas to innovate and better my eye for detail. As a blogger, I try to filter out the best of what this industry has to offer hoping that I would be able to help and inspire all of you.

So with that, I say cheers to you, yes you… the beauty of this story. You deserve the best groom, the best wedding and the best memories of one of the grandest days of your life!

    1. Hi Dea,

      How exciting! Preparations are both fun and draining, so be sure you take time to breathe, pray, and remind yourself that what matters most is love! I hope B&B will inspire you to make your wedding as stylish as possible. Some weddings we’ve featured also had a very tight budget, and yet they have super amazing celebrations!
