New Wedding Blog: The Un-Jersey Bride

I don’t usually publish post’s on a Wednesday, but I come to you today to announce the start of something I think will be big. It’s called the Un-Jersey Bride, a fabulous new wedding blog about New Jersey created by photographer and  fellow Jersey Girl, Feuza. No, the term “Un-Jersey” doesn’t not mean “Anti-Jersey”. It’s simply a blog showing you the side of Jersey you’ve never seen before. The side you’ve never known about but will love to apply to your wedding once you learn what it is.

This blog is breaking stereotypes about Jersey Brides and showing the world there is more to the Garden State than fist pumping during the reception. So leave the obnoxiously big hair, fake tans, and “stuck in the 90’s wedding themes” behind and head over Un-Jersey Bride. There’ll be wedding inspirations, location suggestions, attire advice, eclectic services, unique vendors and more. Plus, you’ll even see a couple guest posts from me. Spread the word; it’s about time folks near and far got to see what a real Jersey wedding is all about.

Don’t forget to visit the Facebook page and leave some feedback!

Texas Roadhouse Supports Christ Church

On Tuesday, February 21st (also known as Mardi Gras) Texas Roadhouse of Parlin, NJ will be supporting my church, Christ Episcopal Church, by hosting a fundraiser. When presenting the below flyer to the server, 10 percent of each patron’s check will be donated to the church.  Proceeds will be used to support programs such as Zumba, blessing of the pets, and feed the homeless.

Like most businesses, my church took a big hit when the economy crashed and is in need of all the help they can get to keep growing and supporting the community. If in the Central Jersey area, please head over to the Texas Roadhouse of Parlin, New Jersey between the hours of 4:00 pm and 10:00 pm. And don’t forget to present the flyer to the server! Any help is truly appreciated.  Email for any questions.

Heaven Looks A Lot Like Jersey

I’m sure most of you have heard some news flying around about Bon Jovi’s death. You’ve probably also heard that it was just a  rumor started by one of the rocker’s biggest haters. To put everyone’s mind at ease, Job Bon Jovi decided to post a picture of himself online with a sign saying “Heaven looks a lot like Jersey,”. I must say I agree with him. I don’t care who says that Jersey is the armpit of America. This state will always be the beautiful Garden State to me. Here are 12 new reasons why New Jersey just might be the best state in America.

1. We’ve got the luxury of being close to two big cities without the hefty price tag – at least not as much as a city.

2. Easy access to some of the country’s best food, such as the cheesesteaks, pizza, empanadas, subs etc.

3. People have actually heard of the state. Be honest. When was the last time you actually thought about Wyoming or North Dakota?

4. Yea we don’t have to pump our own gas, but what’s even more important is that our gas is much cheaper than other locations.

5. We never have to travel too far for some great entertainment with several theaters and stadiums scattered across the state. Plus many popular music acts frequently travel here to perform.

6. Got the gambling bug? A trip to the Atlantic City casinos is only a car ride away.

7. We make more money. Jersey natives typically have much higher salaries in comparison to those from other states.

8. New Jersey towns often occupy most of CNN’s, Best Places to Live, list.

9. We stand a chance to run into many A-list celebrities since many of them choose to make the Garden State their home.

10. New Jersey is home to some of the best healthcare in the country.

11. Jersey natives have the opportunity to live in several environments from city areas to suburban to farm areas.

12. New Jersey is part-owner to the historical Ellis Island.
