My Michael Phelps Wedding Interview

Friday, February 24th, 2017

I don’t often interview men about their weddings, but I got a fun chance to when I spoke with Michael Phelps—the most decorated Olympian in history—and his new wife Nicole Johnson about their wedding. Well, weddings.

They first married in a small five-person ceremony in their backyard in Arizona in June 2016. Then they had an October wedding for their closest friends and family in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. And when we spoke, they will still preparing for their grand finale: A roaring 20s-themed wedding reception party on New Year’s Eve.

Here is our chat for Brides magazine discussing their first and second celebrations: Inside Michael Phelps and Nicole Johnson’s Romantic Destination Wedding in Mexico. They were such a fun, sweet couple—and they also shared a short take of their wedding video with the story.

Just know that if you start checking out the Instagram page of their son, Boomer, like I did (@boomerphelps)…it’s hard to stop.

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

By all accounts, I had a dream wedding with my husband Gus. But the planning—oh, the planning.

After the six fast months we pulled our wedding off in Mexico, I finally understood the building stress that can turn some sweet women into Bridezillas. And I learned so much about seeing things “bright side up” that I wanted to share it.

So here’s my essay in Brides magazine: “Happily Ever Before.”

Talking Weddings with Adorably Gorgeous Fashion Star Jamie Chung

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

I had a new kind of topic to delve into recently: weddings, for the New York Post ALEXA Weddings issue.

And I couldn’t have been luckier with the first celebrity to grace its cover: Jamie Chung. Actress. Fashion maven (you must check out her site whatthechung.com, which will make you drool). Cool-ass woman. And fiancé for just a little bit longer, until she marries fellow actor Bryan Greenberg this fall. (I’m counting the days until their film It’s Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong is released.)
