I know it is such a cheesy, cliché thing to say… but for the sake of trying to express my emotions, I’ll still say it:

I married the woman of my dreams. My excitement over being married to my love goes beyond anything I could attempt to express on our Purse Blog.

Meaghan and I had our wedding last Friday at the Spanish Monastery in North Miami. The event took a lot of stressful planning, it turned out absolutely beautifully. Both Megs and I could not be happier over celebrating this joyous event with close friends and family, obviously we will also share the festivities with our readers. Stay tuned, the pictures will be posted as soon as they are processed by the wonderful Jeff Kolodny. In the meanwhile, Purse Blog business shall return back to usual tomorrow, as we are settling back into our home and working through piles of neglected emails.

Thanks to all of our readers who have followed us on this beautiful journey over the past 4 years.

P.S. Please consider supporting our small, bag-loving team by clicking our links before shopping or checking out at your favorite online retailers like Amazon, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, or any of the listed partners on our shop page. We truly appreciate your support!

    Vlad – you’re so sweet! And you know what? I say BRING ON the cheese, BRING ON the cliche – because this girl is *loving it*!!!

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – if you ever find yourself giving advice to guys who have a difficult time thinking of romantic gestures/ways to show they love their woman – gimme a call b/c my SO can be a lil project for you.

    It warms my hert to think of you and Meg together – it was her toned swimmer’s bod that did it for you, wasn’t it? ;)

    *lotsa hugs*

  • lilyhermes
