The Sunday R&R

Happy Sunday!  The first seven months of this year really have flown by, with so many wonderful features that I have been delighted to bring to you.  However I am always looking to review and improve my offering for you so I would love some feedback on The Sunday R&R.

Are there sections that you love? Are there sections that you could do without?  Is the recap in pictures to long or the narrative too short? Do you read my Love It’s?  Would you like the Love It’s to be more tailored for specific areas such as fashion, honeymoon?  Would you like to hear more offers and updates from our sponsors?

If you can take just 2 minutes to let me know what you think and then I can snap to it and make our Sunday R&R even more enjoyable!

The first weekend in August gives me the opportunity to introduce you to our two new Freshman Wedding Businesses Florésie and Reves de Montagne.

Florésie is run by Laetitia a great admirer of Mother Nature, who love flowers, pretty words, and the little details that make great scenery … and can create your dream floral wedding display. Reves de Montagne is a luxury chalet in the French Alps, the perfect setting for your mountain top wedding ceremony or as a honeymoon hideaway.

What a week and so much to recap on The Sunday R&R!  On Monday we started with Shauna and Philippe’s wedding was chic romance, set in the heart of Paris where the bride wore a stunning romantic Jenny Packham wedding dress.  Shauna and Philippe chose Paris to exchange their vows in front of their closest family members, with the whole day captured by One and Only Paris Photography.  Real wedding in Paris.
