Welcome to Choosing Your Reflection, a series of discussions about the allure and mystery of what to wear on your special day. Through conversations with our diverse group of former brides and grooms, we aim to unravel the unique significance of the perfect wedding day outfit and its meaning to our subjects’ pasts, presents, and futures.
Warriors of Love
Join us this week as we sit down with musical performers HannaH and Chef Bliss, a.k.a. the duo HannaH's Field. HannaH reveals how she wrote Bliss a surprise song, Warriors of Love, and sang it to him as part of their wedding vows, while in the idyllic setting of Peoples State Forest. Stay tuned for the end of the episode where HannaH sings Warriors of Love in the duo's quintessential "Modern Hippie Rasta Folk" style!
Special Guest: HannaH's Field.
Welcome to an especially educational and inspirational episode of Choosing Your Reflection. This week we chat with relationship specialist MD Ansar Ali. An individual with traditional religious roots and a progressive, inclusive mind, Ansar was tasked with the delicate challenge of marrying someone outside of his family’s Muslim faith. Through a combination of honoring his family’s customs, honoring the love for his wife, and trusting that the people most important to him would help make concessions for his happiness, Ansar shares with us the same tenets and beliefs in love he imbues all of his clients.
Special Guest: MD Ansar Ali.
10 Days and Counting
Welcome to this week’s discussion with fellow podcasters Stephen and Lee Preston on Choosing Your Reflection. A second marriage for both of them, the happy couple decided time was of the essence and tied the knot just 10 days after they met online! While they acknowledge their courtship was extremely unorthodox and wouldn’t suggest it to others, the pair have turned their whirlwind romance into 8 blissful years of marriage and a successful podcast, 10 Days and Counting!
Special Guest: Stephen and Lee Preston.
Today on Choosing Your Reflection we talk to Sarah, a new mom and co-host of Hiking Thru Life with her partner on the airwaves and in life, Andy. Sharing a love for a comfortable vibe and the great outdoors, Sarah and her partner tailored their wedding as a love letter to nature. Though she had a few simple aims for her own dress, Sarah walks us through why she told her bridesmaids “no rules”.
Special Guest: Sarah Kermode.
The Maestro in White
This week on Choosing Your Reflection we speak with piano maestro Lincoln Noel. From the West End to The Duke’s Hall and countless weddings played over the years, Lincoln reflects on the wide array of dress he’s seen through the lens of a traveling musician. Our guest takes the time to explain to us how he reflects professionalism through his code of dress, always making sure there is a clear distinction between his work attire and the very special outfit he chose for his own wedding day.
Special Guest: Lincoln Noel.
The Tea Length Dress
This week on Choosing Your Reflection we chat with 28-year marriage veteran, Virginia. In this episode’s discussion Virginia recounts the pressures she faced in wanting to wear a non-traditional dress, and fondly recalls her final outfit, which was admittedly a sign of the times for the early 90’s. Reflecting back on her big day, Virginia realizes how her dress was an outward sign of her inner independent spirit on the day she said "I do!"
Special Guest: Virginia.
