2020 Couple of the Year Applications Open NOW!

2020 is just around the corner. Our 2019 Couple of the Year Jacqueline and Jared said “I Do” last weekend and though they’re not done just yet (stay tuned for all their photos and thoughts about what the big day is really like) we are ready to think about what’s next!

Starting TODAY, you can apply to be our 2020 Couple of the Year!

We are looking for couples who want to share their wedding planning journey with the world. We want couples who are totally in love, are getting married in Rhode Island in 2020, and who love social media and have an interest in documenting their planning journey with photos and brief journal entries.

It’s no secret that we love weddings, but we are taking it to a whole new level by following a real couple as they plan and execute their wedding! We want to share it all from choosing a dress to cake tastings and finding the perfect DJ and even choosing your honeymoon spot! We want to capture it all as the ultimate real-life blog series!


Check out our 2019 Couple of the Year Jacquelin and Jared for some inspiration!
