Happy New Year!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I’m not a resolution kinda girl.  Yes, I could stand to lose my last 10 pounds and read more books that aren’t just about weddings but I figure, all in due time.  Instead, I choose to reflect on the year prior, listing both the learning lessons and accomplishments, and that is what I try to build on in the new year.   Let’s take a look at some of the highlights from 2012.

IMG-20120228-00329SocialBFly participated in the first bridal showcase hosted by Weddings For Heroes – a NJ charitable organization that provides dream weddings to Combat wounded military personnel, Combat Veterans and active duty military facing hardships at no cost to them. Did I mention this was also our first time participating as a vendor in a bridal showcase?  See more from this experience in SocialBFly About Town: Weddings for Heroes Bridal Showcase.

We were featured and included as a contributing author in the 2012 wedding book: Insiders Know-how: Planning Your Perfect Wedding.  We were honored to be listed among some of our esteemed wedding colleagues including Ariane Fisher of Storymix Media and Desiree Mondesir of Desired Assistance Weddings.  The e-book is currently available on Amazon.  Why not, read an excerpt.

The presidential race wasn’t the only race being run in 2012.  We were fortunate to be included in the Wedding Industry Experts annual Wedding Planner of the Year competition and you voted us #1 in Roselle Park (Union County). I know I’ve said it before but, Thanks guys…you make a girl feel good!

Looking back at our year in numbers – 14 events and special projects were flawlessly executed and 27 new blogs were posted on Behind the Veil, Beyond the Vows – our most popular post of the year was Hostess How-To: Setting The Perfect Table for A Dinner Party. We ended the year with 188 LIKES on our Facebook page, 1458 followers on twitter, and 142 amazing inspiration boards on Pinterest.  Thanks to everyone that makes our social media efforts worthwhile!

Last but not least, 2012 also marked the second straight year that SocialBFly has been Wedding Wire rated!  Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!

This is where we will build from in the new year.  2013 has an exciting horizon and we promise there is more in store for our readers, partners and clients.  Look out for our new website coming in February as well as our series of NJ and PA wedding workshops, feature guest bloggers, and bridal showcase appearances throughout the tri-state area.  Stay tuned…if you aren’t following us, you really should be.

We’re also happy to welcome new couples N&T, P&R, N&D, and L&B into the SocialBFly family and are looking forward to being a special part of their 2013 nuptials.

So cheers to a 2013 that is filled with enormous success, energy and gratitude….and, CHEERS to love!!  Happy New Year!

xoxo, tasheea

Hello world!

(That was the default title WordPress assigned to our first blog and it worked…so we’re sticking with it.)

Hello World and welcome to our little piece of the blogosphere. Behind the Veil…Beyond the Vows is the new official blog for Socialbfly and in case this is the first time you’re hearing of us, Socialbfly is a special events and lifestyle marketing boutique geared to enhancing every aspect of our clients lives through three unique and trendsetting studios:

  • The Imaging Studio provides assistance to individuals and businesses looking to alter, enhance, or maintain any and all aspects of their lives.  We work with a sassy lineup of indie stylists, motivational speakers, and designers to provide personal services, seminars and workshops that successfully enhance our clients’ definition of love, life, look and luxury
  • The Publicity Boutique specializes in providing premier marketing and publicity services for businesses, brands, and personalities anchored in arts, entertainment and womens health and beauty
  • The Event Design Studio is actually comprised of 4 Boutiques geared to our most popular client types: Charities and Small Businesses, Children, Girlfriends and Blushing Brides-to-be

We also host an annual calendar of events throughout NJ, and the surrounding areas, that are used to raise funds and awareness about charitable causes.   Stay tuned because the  “Behind the Veil…Beyond the Vows Bridal Expo” is in the works and we’d love to see you there.

For much more information on our services visit our website, http://www.socialbfly.com.  In the meantime, stick around and see what the fuss is about as we explore all of the ins and outs of the wedding experience and beyond (Yes, there is life after marriage…lol).   They’ll be a lot of housekeeping taking place in the weeks ahead so pardon our dust but we promise to keep you entertained in the meantime. We’ll be launching with a 26 week series on the ABCs of Wedding Planning very shortly as well as profiling our first feature vendor so make sure you don’t stay gone long.

Hello World!  We’re Here!!!

Cheers!
