Ladies, we all know that when planning our weddings, that day comes where we ask ourselves about our fitness in relation to our wedding. We are already making a huge, life-changing choice, so it comes naturally that we should think about our health and how it should change as the rest of our life does. In addition, we all want to look the best that we can on that once-in-a-lifetime day. Luckily, Laila Rahmatian-Alieh is coming to our rescue! As a wedding fitness coach and a retired NASA co-op engineer, she has the know-how and brains to coach brides-to-be on reaching their ultimate fitness state. Laila Alieh is the fitness astronaut that will rocket you into health!

Can we get a "hooray" for Fri-yay? We're doing a happy dance over here (and we know you are, too!). Not only is it the beginning of the weekend, but the day we get to "ooh," "ahh" and swoon over some totally talented vendors and their killer work! Don't believe us?

We often get asked if working at WeddingDay is a dream job. If looking at weddings 24/7 is as awesome as it sounds. And our answer is always the same: We. Could. Not. Love. It. Anymore.

What we love most about weddings are all the tiny moments that make up the big picture of the entire day! And we feel so lucky that we're able to catch a glimpse of those small moments with you all when our local vendors share them on social media.
