About Brides, Bubbles, and Bliss

Brides, Bubbles, and Bliss (“BBB”) is an online blogazine that features the high fashion, bridal and lifestyle inspiration. BBB first launched as an annual bridal event in 2009 and has grown to be the Midwest’s not-to-miss bridal event of the year, a beautifully curated production providing endless informative inspiration for brides, grooms, and industry insiders.  With producers and Carasco Photography owners, Cara and Scott Nava, pulling the delicate strings of this soiree, it continues to be one of the chicest events Chicago sees all year.  Each year, the production offers an exclusive runway show with a renowned bridal designer, couture dress and custom suit samplings, amid an array of modern catering and décor ideas.

There are many layers to the production of a truly magical, one of a kind wedding day celebration, and knowing where to begin is the philosophy behind the inception of Brides, Bubbles, and Bliss.  As an extension of this annual bridal outlet, Cara and Scott have tapped into the notion of producing year round bridal advice.  These original videos, which fall under the guise of BBB TV, are released twice a month (debuting in December 2012), offering brides-to- be and the wedding-curious exclusive tips and tricks from some of the industry’s leading professionals.

Today’s weddings are all about dazzling with the details and Brides, Bubbles, and Bliss alongside the year round bridal guidance of BBB TV are among the most inspirational outlets for the newly engaged.

Be sure to check back often with a glass of bubbly or sparkling water and peruse our blog for all of the bridal eye candy and essential tips from our wedding artisan vendors you can handle.

Congratulations to you on your engagement!

If you had a month to vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go? Anywhere with palm trees! A tropical climate where I can kick off my sandals and enjoy a good umbrella drink over the sound of the waves crashing is A-OK with me.

If you could party like a rock star with any celebrity (dead or alive) who would it be?
I’d have to say Marilyn Monroe, that girl has to know how to have a good time!

What icon would leave you starstruck if you met them?

I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to celebrities. I get starstruck whenever I see one. I am a pretty outgoing person, but put someone who’s been on the big screen in front of me and I clam up! I can’t help it!

Favorite Chicago Spot?
Wormhole coffee shop! Any place that offers an original Nintendo and great coffee is my kind of place.

Who is your hero?
My grandmother, Lucienne. She came over from France in her 20’s and started her own business. She is the hardest working, kind, loving person I know in this world, and I aspire to be just like her.

Who are your style icons?
I love all things girly and feminine, but appreciate a classic look as well. My favorite celeb style icons would have to be Jennifer Garner, Charlize Theron and Mila Kunis.

Anything else you’d like BBB viewers to know about you?

I have to have my hands in a dozen different things at a time, and love to be on the go. Taking a food network road trip across the country is a dream of mine. To eat at every restaurant Guy Fieri has visited on Diners, Drive In’s and Dives is a must before I die! I love all furry animals and would love to have a no kill animal shelter someday. I love all things bridal. I love fashion, pink and anything and everything girly.

cities of Spain, France, Italy/Sardinia/Corsica, Croatia, Greece and Turkey.

If you could party like a rock star with any celebrity (dead or alive) who would it be?
Definitely Kristen Wiig!! She’s hilarious, I wish I could be her best friend! I also think Gwen

night!

What Icon would leave you star struck if they were in your chair for styling?
Is Beyonce considered an Icon? I would LOVE the opportunity to work with her. Her style is so is classy, yet she’s not afraid to go edgy, or bold. The possibilities to be creative, while still keeping it pretty are endless.
