The Next Plunge Project Chapter

Happy Wednesday! Today, I’m sharing a pretty big announcement about the future of the Plunge Project.

As many of you know, I started the Plunge Project in 2010 when I was planning my own wedding. I found that I loved blogging about weddings so much that I decided to continue to blog and focus on growing the Plunge Project into what is it today, even years after tying the knot myself.

As amazing as it’s been to be founder and editor-in-chief all of these years, it’s time I must pass the torch. And I’m excited to announce that I’m passing it to someone who has much more wedding industry experience than me — I’m passing it to Tiffany Fulmer, a freelance wedding photographer! Tiffany lives and breathes weddings everyday, and I have no doubt that she’ll bring her experience and expertise to the Plunge Project in a way that provides even more stunning wedding inspiration to all of you lovely readers.

In addition to photographing weddings, Tiffany loves adventure, capturing love through her lens, and has a passion for writing. When she’s not photographing, she enjoys being with her husband and 5 kitties in their farmhouse. Tiffany is excited to take over the Plunge Project and to continue to bring you wedding inspirations, and I’m thrilled that the Plunge Project will be in her capable hands.

It’s been a blast blogging with you all over the years, and I will miss you dearly! Take it away, Tiffany :)

Design Your Dream Shoes at Project Shoe

project-shoeI love shoes. Seriously. But what woman doesn’t? The problem I tend to have, however, is that I buy shoes based on looks, and they end up spending 99% of their life on display in my closet because they’re just too uncomfortable to actually wear. All that said, I was still pretty excited when the Project Shoe team reached out to me to try out their service and order my very own pair of custom shoes. I was even more excited when my shoes arrived that week and I put them on my feet, because not only are the gorgeous, they’re incredibly comfortable and made of some really high-quality materials!

The Perfect Dishes to Fit Your Wedding Style

As a chef and bride-to-be, planning my wedding menu is something that came naturally to me. Outside of the menu, there are just so many considerations and plans that go into a wedding. Luckily, I have a wedding planner so I don’t get bogged down by any one detail.

When it comes to planning a wedding menu around a theme or style of wedding, there are many creative things you can do. Here are some tips and tricks for such an occasion.

Seasonality is a big thing. The time of year will definitely affect how you look at your menu. I wanted to share examples for some real-life themes.

Summer Beach Wedding

The first thing that comes to mind is—seafood! In season, it is perfect to serve as prominent dish. Soft shell crabs, for example, are in season from June through July. They can be the main entrée or as a side with crab incorporated into appetizers, instead. A summery salad—such as a caprese salad with mozzarella, tomatoes, basil and balsamic vinegar—is perfect to highlight tomatoes, which are very ripe in the summer. This will guarantee you have the freshest ingredients! Keep reading…

How To Plan Your Wedding Menu Like a Chef

As a bride-to-be and professional chef, I knew that the menu would be a huge part of my day. Planning a wedding menu like a chef doesn’t have to be as daunting as it may seem. When I say to plan like a chef, I really mean that you should do three main things:

  1. Consider the number of guests attending.
  2. Set your budget—and vow to stick to it.
  3. Choose the main dish you will highlight.

These three steps are what chefs take into consideration when planning a nightly menu. You need to take a step back and look at all parts of the evening that food will play a major role in. Keep reading…
