Insight for Brides
I'm Joelle Duff, and I am so very excited to be working with Lauren on Every Last Detail! I am originally from Orange County, California, but currently live in Ventura (halfway between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara) with my husband and little dog. I was never really interested in weddings until I planned my own wedding, and now I can't get enough of them! I'm fortunate enough to live on California's Central Coast, where beautiful weddings are always in season. In addition to contributing to Every Last Detail, I also plan weddings for my company, A Charming Occasion, and blog over at Something Charming, my lifestyle blog where I post about the things I find lovely in life. In my spare time you can find me window shopping at Anthropologie, pinning pretty things on Pinterest, and eating cupcakes. I'm also a firm believer that everyone deserves a perfect wedding, and I love making that a reality for my clients and readers.
Hi everyone! I'm Elisa Suter from San Diego, California! I am delighted to be joining Lauren on Every Last Detail! When I was planning my own wedding four years ago, I remember being completely overwhelmed - why did weddings cost so much? what elements were actually necessary? how could I make a decision between so many styles? - despite my years of running events. When I started planning weddings a few years later, I found ELD and loved how much real discussion Lauren put forth about the why and how of wedding planning! I love eclectic, vintage-inspired, and handcrafted details (I'm a thrift and craft store junky!) and lots of color, and am totally addicted to seeing happy couples. In addition to contributing here, I run my own Wedding and Event Design company, Events by Elisa. I believe that everyone can have a beautiful wedding, full of personal details, on any budget - what makes the difference is good preparation and decision making!
Hey, y'all! I'm Carlee Sizemore and I'm so pleased to be joining Lauren here at Every Last Detail. Originally from the South, I currently reside on the coast of Connecticut with my darling husband and adorable little boy. Like many before me, I joined the wedding industry after planning my own wedding. A bride before the invention of wedding blogs and inspiration sites (Hello, 2008!), I would have loved to have had an educated resource such as Every Last Detail. It is such an honor to be able to contribute my insight and inspiration for real brides (that's you, dear reader!). An editorial and event stylist and designer of fabulous accessories, you can find me over at Carlee Sizemore!
Hello! I am Samm, and I am so excited to be joining Lauren and the rest of the amazing ELD team! I am originally from Bellingham Washington (yes, where Death Cab for Cutie is from!) but I mostly grew up in Ponte Vedra Beach Florida and have lived in Orlando for the past 5 years so Florida is my home but I love love love to travel. I am co-owner of Imprint Cinema with my husband Alex, who I married a little over a year ago. I love everything about weddings- from what I do (filmmaking), to the details... and especially the little sparkles :) I have loved weddings from the first time I stepped into one and since then, I have been to over one hundred (including my own!). My favorite thing about weddings is that no matter how many I get to see, enjoy, or be a part of, every single one is so different! I love seeing a couple's personality come across in their details and decor, and I am excited to share these things on Every Last Detail!
Hi there! We are Kevin + Yun, owners of The Grunion Run Groomsmen Shop — an online shop for grooms and groomsmen looking for affordable, vintage-inspired wedding wear. Originally from Toronto, Canada we've known each other since birth (literally!) and after taking many a divergent path throughout the years, landed in the same city again in 2003. We got married in 2006 and throughout our planning process wished that there were the incredible resources — blogs, vintage furniture rentals, awesome groomsmen shops (!) — that are now available to couples. We currently live in Los Angeles, CA with our precocious baby girl who keeps us busily entertained and on the move when we aren't working to make guys everywhere look their handsome-best for their big day.
