We’ve asked HLW’s editor, Alexandra, to share with us what makes her blog one of the most fabulous places to get inspired for your wedding:
Heart Love Weddings is a Love Story, Wedding Planning, and Inspiration Blog. We share our heart, cherish love stories, and celebrate the moments that leave you breathless. Not only do we wish to inspire you with pretty weddings and details, make you swoon over romantic love stories, but we also wish to educate you in a way we would want to be educated.
We hope to inspire you visually, emotionally and mentally for an all-encompassing, complete wedding blog experience filled with love, laughter and happily ever after, from our hearts to yours.

Heart Love Weddings did not begin like most wedding blogs. I wasn’t a photographer or invitations designer with a hankering for something more. I wasn’t even a bride (there is no ring yet on my finger) planning her special day. I was simply a girl who remembers every detail about the first wedding she ever saw.
A heart drawn in the sand where the bride and groom stood barefoot to say I do, surrounded by seashells and candles. The sparkle in the bodice of the bride’s strapless lace wedding dress. The way she laughed when her husband took her hand and together they ran into the water where he dipped her, and then kissed her.
I was six years old, and to me, it was the most magical moment in the world. I have a passion for writing, and a love for all things wedding. This is pretty much the best dream job a girl could ask for.

The Heart Love Weddings reader is actually someone very much like me. She is someone special.
She is someone’s daughter, sister, friend and soon-to-be someone’s everything. She is a dreamer. And a hopeless romantic. She has an eye for detail, for style, and for all things that glitter. She believes happy tears and dip kisses are the best of their kind. She believes in dressing up and dressing down, in date nights and movies at home. She lives to be the smile her man keeps on his heart. She loves a good love story, but hers is her favorite. And vows to one day write it all down.
She has a vision for her wedding day that she can’t wait to see come to life. She realizes that happy ever after doesn’t come on the wedding day, because there is still so much more loving left to do. Our reader is me too. I am the heart behind Heart Love Weddings.
