New to the Neighborhood

Hello, my name is Danyelle and I'm a wedding addict. What? This isn't Wedding-Addicts-Anonymous? Oops!

Seriously, I truly love weddings. My husband and I worked at our friends' wedding planner business when we were newly-weds. We did everything from bridal fittings and cake tasting to reception plans and honeymoon getaways. I've also attended seminars on color-draping, make-up, hair designs, and clothing types.

But the real reason I love weddings is because I'm a true-through-and-through romantic. When I was little, I fell in love with Cinderella and Prince Charming . . . and to this day, I continue to dream about happily ever after.

Every time I get a thick, padded envelope in the mail, I cross my fingers and wish for a wedding announcement. I love marking bridal showers, weddings, and receptions in my planner. I just can't help but feel giddy and excited.

Aside from a wedding junkie, I'm also a wife, mother, and writer. I spend most of my days alternating between changing diapers, running kids to activities, and typing like a mad woman at my desk during precious "quiet" moments. But I'm happy to say that my little girls are just as in love with Cinderella and happily ever after as I am.

When Candace Salima told me YourLDSNeighborhood needed a wedding blogger and asked if I'd be interested, it was all I could do not to jump out of my chair as I typed back, "Yes! Yes! YES!"

I have big plans for this blog. And don't even think for one minute it will be boring. Oh no! I have a huge list of topics to explore. Everything from pre-engagement to happy newly-wed status and everything in-between. More serious topics will be discussed such as getting remarried and what to do when your non-LDS family can't attend the wedding. In fact, I have so much to say that if you have a question, please email me and I will bump that topic up on my list.

I'm very excited to share my love for weddings with you . . . and I hope that through this journey, you'll share your happy stories with me, too.

XOXOXO-

Danyelle
