    When we took the show on the road in 2018 (literally), we ended up at the desk of Angela Proffitt, celebrity wedding planner, connector, and small business guru. She is a treasure in Nashville. She has her own podcast and we were guests on it as well - Weddings Unveiled. She has an adorable accent. But the adorable stops there (well, it stops with her adorable Southern smile, I guess) and the badass begins as soon as you hear her talk about her business, her priorities, and her journey. Buckle up, Y'all!

    MIchelle and Christy took the show on the road and headed to Nashville Tennessee to sponsor and record live at The Modern Love Event. We met brides, grooms, friends, parents and lots of amazing top wedding vendors in the Southern City that never sleeps. This episode is the ‘show’ we did in the loft of The Cordelle, the host venue of the Modern Love Event. We chatted with attendees, answered questions, addressed concerns and dished out a lot of free advice. It’s free, so don’t blame us! It’s like a live YAWA. We had so much fun. And we touched on SO MANY TOPICS.

    We’re reflecting on 2018 - the highs, the lows, the lessons, the funny stories and lots and lots of our favorites. Plus, trends from last year and predictions for 2019. AND what’s to come in the new year! (Oh! We crawled under a deck at a double-wide bar in Nashville. We talk about it in this episode.)

    An ambitious idea and a lot of rehearsal went into the execution of PJ and Noah’s first dance. It was a surprise for all of their guests, and then it was a surprise when it went online, went viral and brought thousands and comments and media inquiries to their door. What happens when you do something and the world notices? PJ and Noah turned the unexpected flood of attention into a donation drive that raised over 30k for a non-profit that means a lot to them, and to many people who watched their dance video with happy tears in their eyes: It Gets Better. PJ and Noah share their experience with the dance and all of the other sweet, personal moments on their wedding day. We are so happy to have them on the podcast!

    More unique content from Michelle with Cass-Lara-Tony, a poly-family, and the luminous Dr. Magdalena Fosse, clinical psychologist (one of our all-time favorite contributors!). What happens when two people get legally married, but have a third partner in their relationship? Turns out, it’s a lot like a ‘normal’ traditional hetero-wedding! Only, the Maid of Honor sleeps in the same bed as the couple at the altar.

    Michelle does a prelude to this week’s episode because it is a little (a lot) different than our usual fare. “Polyamory” is defined in Urban Dictionary as The practice, state or ability to have more than one sexual loving relationship at the same time, with the full knowledge and consent of all partners involved. Michelle describes it as opening up your heart enough to have this kind of arrangement. We know it’s a bit taboo, we know listeners will react in different ways to this episode, but we have a podcast about love and marriage and this is an episode that tells one story in this realm. And you can learn something valuable...
