Introducing Diann Valentine Home to Munaluchi Brides!

When Jacqueine Nwobu and Munaluchi Bride came to LA as part of their national tour, I was honored to host the special soiree and lend my voice to support my dear friend along her journey.

#TransformationTuesday – Fall In Love!

It took me a lot of living and a lot of pain to finally be ready to receive this kind of love. I’ve witnessed countless love stories and many that I knew were doomed from the beginning but ladies you cannot rush love. Somehow I think that many of us can only discover our worthiness for a love like this only after we have been through enough awful love affairs…I know I learned this the hard way but oooooooh weeeee my baby was worth the wait!

#WeddingWednesday Diann Valentine Signature Bridal Cuffs Are The New Bouquet!

Flowers are beautiful kisses of nature…they are one of God’s gifts that add beauty and color to the world. Flowers are also beautiful design accents for weddings but should not be the star on any woman’s wedding day. As a bride makes her way down the aisle, her flowers should be a beautiful accent to her gown and not an enormous barrier that blocks everyone’s view of her couture masterpiece. Many of my clients and brides around the world are embracing my cuffs for this very reason and today I’m honoring a few of the ladies who have been bold enough to choose this alternative and loved it so much more than a traditional bouquet.

#WeddingWednesday – Take It For A Swing!

As Tamra and Eddie Judge’s wedding was starting to wind down and it was time to cut the cake, Tamra decided to take it for a swing and sent her confectionery work of art perched on the suspended cake stand I designed flying in the air. At the moment, I thought I was going to choke because I had visions of cake smashing into Gretchen or worst yet one of her adorable daughters. However, looking back – this is one of the moments that shows why I loved working with Tamra so much. She throws caution to the wind and SHE lives. How many of you are willing to do the same?

The Best of 2013!

This has been one of the most challenging years of my life with so much personal and professional struggle. Ups and downs and highs and lows were just a consistent road I found myself on swiftly moving from mountaintop to valley with a blinking of my eyes. Change was the surrounding message I heard as I forged through the dark days – major changes that would change the trajectory of my life and remind me that I am a risk-taker, fearless and tenacious soul and that God has already given me everything I need to return to “HAPPY”. Throughout this new kind of journey, I know that I have been blessed. God has kept me and continued to show me favor in all areas of my life. Although I welcomed the end of 2013, I cannot move forward without acknowledging the victories of this past year so I’m sharing them with you with hopes that you will know like never before that we are all on the same journey, experiencing the same struggles as we strive to leave our mark on the world so that when someone reads our obituary – all of the people we have impacted will say ‘She Was Here’!
