Be Engaged...

I was pleased to attend a panel discussion today with celebrated author and event planner, Karen Bussen! Other wedding experts on the panel were: Beth Chapman from The White Dress by the Shore, Christine Toner of Stonington Design and Paperie and Mary Marantz of Justin and Mary Marantz Photography. After the discussion, Karen was kind enough to sign books while we sipped Prosecco Punch (her own frugalicious recipe)! What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

I was happy to spend some time with Karen before the event to do her makeup and get to know her a bit! In addition to being an accomplished author and planner, she is down to earth and very sweet. I really enjoyed our time together!


  1. you did an awesome job on the makeup, girl!! It was so great to see you!

  2. many thanks jennie for sharing your talent with us.
