More OBB

Aww! This wedding photo just came to me from Christie (aka RedDress on the Offbeat Bride Tribe) with a note saying:

Thank you Ariel for writing such an amazing book and starting such an amazing online community.

Phill and I just wanted to show our appreciation, and we thought you might like this.

Much love,
Christie and Phill

  1. OMG! I love it!!! Christie rocks to like the 1000th power! Great picture! And thank you Ariel! We rock, but not as much as you! 😉

  2. This picture is FANTASTIC! I'm sure most grooms could relate to the sentiment too… "Not now dear, I'm far to engrossed in The Wedding Bible" Tee hee…

  3. Woohoo! Redress is married! That photo is awesome and I totally share the sentiment- I probably would have thrown someone else's wedding without this forum.

  4. Ha! I love it! I'm going to take a similar pic on my wedding day a year from now. Maybe we can start a trend with the OBBs and have a gallery of Brides holding the OBB book!

  5. grrr….. rumble…… why didn't I think of that!
    JK, I love that picture! It is so perfect. I love Phill's reaction in the background too. xo

  6. Kathleen, find a way to photoshop it into the background! Gogo! 😀 Though honestly it's a really cute idea and would be great for engagement photo sessions too. Looks great!

  7. Your book saved my ass way too many times Ariel! My husband told everyone that I had it with me at all times and he even read things in it to to help him out. My best friend is getting married next year and guess what I'm going to be getting the lady he's marrying soon? 🙂

  8. Totally share this sentiment, thank you Ariel for the book, the website and the OBT! It is the best – I have started telling non-OBBers it's my "online wedding sanity oracle" 🙂
