Wowza … it’s amazing to me that a year has gone by since Hill City Bride first started. I am so grateful to all of my friends and vendors (and those are one and the same!) that have supported my first year in this endeavor. I have really had fun blogging and providing great ideas for brides, BUT more than that, I have greatly enjoyed the people. I have so many wonderful people in my life that I would never have had without the avenue of HCB.

So, here it is … Happy 1st Anniversary, and I hope that there are many more to come (in fact, I am planning on it!!). I also have to say a Happy Father’s Day (not that a lot of dads read a bridal blog … hello??), and a wonderful 46th Anniversary to my parents!

  • Linda Hall - Love Is In The Air - Thank you, Jennifer, for all you do for your brides and your vendors. This past year has truly been an amazing experience for our business and that is in a large part, due to our participation with HCB.

  • Jeremiah Stone Blue Productions - What a great year and so much cool stuff has happened. Keep up the great work, and we look forward to what HCB has up their sleeve for year two.

  • Rachel Guelzo McLean (RS Exclusive) - HCB is the best — and more importantly, YOU are the best! 🙂

  • Jennifer - Thanks, Rachel!!

Well, it’s Anniversary Week here at Hill City Bride! It’s hard to believe that the blog has been inspiring brides and helping them plan their weddings for 4 years. So fun! This week, I am giving myself an anniversary present… I’m actually away at a blogging conference. I can’t wait to come back recharged, excited and refreshed about blogging. I know I will bring back lots of ideas. I can’t wait!

In addition to learning about blogging this week, I’m also going to be sharing 5 of my favorite weddings over the past 4 years. I hope that you enjoy and draw inspiration from each one of them. Enjoy, and have a great week!

I love Mitch and Liz’s wedding because it’s just so lovely in the great outdoors… the river and mountains make the perfect backdrop. Plus, it just has lots of cute details! Be sure to take a peek at it by clicking HERE.

Cord and Libbie by Adam Mullins Photography as seen on Hill City BrideCord & Libbie had such a fun, farm wedding… complete with a hayride entrance for the bridal party. There are so many fun ideas in this full wedding that you can see HERE.

If you are looking for a wedding gown in Central Virginia, THE place to go is definitely Celebration as they have it all and can help you get exactly what you have been dreaming of since you were a little girl. They offer impeccable bridal gowns along with tuxedos, bridesmaids dresses (which work for any formal occasion!) and accessories.

Although they have lots in their store, one of the things that truly sets Celebration apart is their service, which is offered by their wonderful staff. Their fun personalities shine through in this video done by Brad Bennett of Shaking Hands Productions, and these ladies are truly invested in each one of their brides. As their NEW website states… “If you are planning a wedding, we will work closely from the day you set your personalized appointment until the day you walk down the aisle. As a full service bridal salon, we cater to every member of your bridal party from the flower girl to the grandmother of the bride.”

I hope that you enjoy watching this fun and informative video, and when you stop by Celebration tell the girls that Hill City Bride says, “hello”.

 

If you didn’t catch it earlier, Celebration’s website is brand new, so be sure to check it out by clicking here.
