Cuisinart registry must-haves for brides & grooms!

Cuisnart food processor

I’ll be the first bride to admit that I was completely clueless when it came to registering for gifts. After living with my fiance for over 2 years, we felt we had almost everything our home could need to be a functional living space for two young adults. Hand-me-down coffeemaker from my parents? Check. An odd mishmash of pots and pans from Ikea? Check. A blender that we use for far too many things? Check!

Okay, so maybe we didn’t have everything. Or at least, we realized when thinking about our registry that we could use an upgrade on several items. So when I started checking out the new kitchen appliances that we could add to our registry, I got excited about the possibilities. That old “gurgly” coffeemaker could be replaced! We could have a matching set of pots and pans that didn’t burn everything we cooked! I could julienne veggies in a food processor instead of praying they didn’t turn to mush in the blender (yes, that’s happened)!

Three options that I’m considering for my own registry are the Cuisinart Elite Collection™ 12-Cup Food Processor, Single Cup Grind & Brew™ Coffeemaker, and Chef’s Classic Stainless Steel Cookware Collection.

I will admit, I’m going to be pretty damn excited if any of these items make it to my doorstep! I mean a coffeemaker that only brews as much delicious coffee as I need, a food processor that can chop, slice & dice, and a gorgeous cookware set that will actually heat evenly? Sounds like the next level of fine adult living, if I don’t say so myself! Cuisinart sure does know what they’re doing…

Well brides and grooms, what will you be registering for this year for your own nuptials? Anyone else looking to upgrade their kitchen appliances like me? Let us know your comments!

A glam white and gold winter wedding by onelove photography

Elegant and glam winter wedding decor

Winter is wonderful for many things — stylish boots, skiing, cozy fires and warm jackets, to name a few. However when most people think about weddings, they don’t automatically think of the winter time. Well, I think it’s safe to say that today’s wedding is going to change that and prove that winter weddings are some of the most elegant types of celebrations out there!

Bess and Austin were married at Union Hill Inn near Lake Tahoe in California. Their big day was made even more memorable with the dusting of snowfall on the mountainside, which made for amazing first-look photos! From Bess’ unique and chic wedding dress to the breathtaking reception, every bit of this glam white and gold winter wedding is pure magic. The beauty of the day was captured expertly by our friends at onelove photography, so you know it’s going to be good…
