Rachael Oliver, Real Weddings Contributor

Hello All!  Since they say admitting your problem is the first step, my name is Rachel and I am wedding obsessed.    I am a wife, mom, student, fashion veteran, wedding consultant, and wannabe entrepreneur.  A tried and true New Yorker, I live in the beautiful Hudson Valley about 90 minutes from Manhattan.  While I am surrounded by history and nature, I spend most of my time chasing a two year old, pinning away craft projects, design ideas, and ogling amazing weddings.  Sometimes, I get the chance to test the ideas and share them with friends, family or prospective brides.  As the proud new contributor to DIY Bride’s Real Weddings, I hope that I will not only get to nurse my wedding obsession, but share with you the amazingly crafty, budget friendly ideas that every day people create that can turn any event into a meaningful celebration.
