From The Editors Desk
For a few months now I have been sharing with you some of my favorite weddings as well as some of my favorite wedding trends and ideas. I thought I would finally take some time and introduce myself!
My name is Ruthie and I am the editor of the blog. I was born in NY, raised in Puerto Rico, attended college in Chicago and made my way back to the big city we all know as New York City (even though my heart will always be in PR). To sum that up, I have the personality of a Latin lady, the home roots of a Midwestern and the style and motivation of a New Yorker.
I am a wedding planner based in NYC, with a background in fashion, public relations and entertainment. I have worked with some of the who’s who in the entertainment industry including Desiree Gruber, CEO and Founder of Full Picture and Sarah Ferguson, The Duchess of York. I have also worked with some top magazines including: Cosmo Girl, Elle Accessories and People StyleWatch along with key events like: The Victoria Secret Annual Fashion Show, Heidi Klum’s Annual Halloween Party and Project Runway Fashion Shows. After years of experience in the industry I decided to parlay all of this into weddings and have been working with one of the top wedding planning firms in NYC for the last 4 years.
Two years ago I decided to combine my obsession with weddings and my love for my home island and Bodas del Encanto was born.
This has truly been a labor of love and so many exciting things are yet to come, I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am.
Last month while I was in Puerto Rico I had the chance to do a shoot with one of my favorite photographers Tuty Feliciano for my head shots. We had so much fun walking the streets of San Juan and leaving a little confetti trail everywhere we went.
Here are some of my favorite pics...
