    Alyssa Rower is a divorce attorney and practices matrimonial law in NYC. She’s fierce, she’s forthcoming and she is teaching us about the legal and financial elements of marriage that we aren’t total know-it-alls about! How refreshing. Alyssa has been featured and written articles for HuffPost, Brides.com, Forbes and The Chicago Tribune - to name a few. We’re stoked to have her on the podcast!

    This is the story of photographer Steph Grant, told - sometimes chaotically - by Steph Grant. We had so much fun talking to Steph! She is a dear friend of Christy’s and we are sure you are going to fall in love with her. She is passionate, driven, endlessly energetic, compassionate and she seeks connection and expression in everything she touches. Steph shoots weddings (mostly lesbian) literally all over the world and her images tell a story of the wedding day, and the bigger love story of the couple. In this episode, we dive right in and swim all over! Steph’s nonprofit ‘Promote Love’ is growing exponentially and we’re here for it!

    Trisha (from Episode 67!) got married to Sutton this summer in New Orleans. They rented out a venue for the weekend and hosted guests from all over the country for 3 nights of hot, sexy, boozy, NOLA fun. They’re on the podcast telling us what they learned and what they loved about their ‘best weekend ever’. Also, Christy was a VIP guest at this wedding (that’s what we called the non-wedding-party-wedding-party-stayed-at-the-venue-with-Trisha-and-Sutton) so she has lots of opinions too...mainly that the entire weekend was a total dream. And also notes that when you host a wedding with beer and wine only, it’s a nice treat to stow good tequila for the VIPS before and after parties…!

    Our guest today is Mirelle Eid of Honeybreak Officiants. We’re so stoked to have a pro in the house for this! We’ve talked a lot about writing your own ceremony script, and having friends as officiants...this is a trend, for sure. But if you want to hire an officiant - you need to find the right one! For this vendor, it’s personal.
    Mirelle shares advice for hiring and working with an officiant, creating a unique ceremony and some of her very favorite stories about her couples.

    Planning your wedding in your childhood home? Your grandparents’ farm? A private estate owned by your elusive, rich aunt who loves gazebos? Great! As wedding planners, we love the ‘built in sentimentality’ of a venue that means something to our clients. But the logistics can be nightmarish. And hosting a wedding at your house may not save you money-- contrary to popular belief. You may even be shocked to learn that you may end up spending more! It’s a game of hidden costs, y’all.
