Hey Y’all,

Since I’m always making such great friends at the Engage! events, I thought I’d start featuring some of them here to shine a light on their amazing companies and talents. To kick things off, I’d like to introduce y’all to my friend Amanda Allen (pictured with me above at Engage! 14), Founder and CEO of NewlyWish, a New York City-based online wedding registry service designed to help couples create gift registries that truly reflect their life and personal style.

Did you know that one of my favorite wedding websites, www.theknot.com, also publishes a gorgeous n’ glossy magazine? In fact, I’m featured in the current issue of The Knot: Southern California (on newsstands now through August 2013) and you can find my advice, along with a few other industry experts, in the STYLE section, in an article called, “6 Ways to Style Your Wedding”.

Brian Worley007The photography that accompanies the article is really cute. I hope you’ll pick up a copy the next time you’re out! Here’s a sneak peek at the rest of the feature…
