He put a ring on it!

Congrats to our dear friend and WJLA evening anchor Alison Starling on getting engaged! Her news beau NBC Correspondent Peter Alexander popped the question while they were in Paris! Alison sent me this pic (I see bling!) and says “We’re over the moon!”  Best wishes to the bride-to-be and her lucky man.

Wedding stalking.. and the unthinkable happens

I’m writing from West Virginia where me and lil Goff are staycationing. We were told that there was going to be a wedding on the estate and our first thoughts “Thank goodness we brought some dresses!” We realized during our dinner that the wedding was about to take place on the main quad, beautiful greens, rolling hills. It just so happens our suite overlooked the location. We hurried up to wrap up dinner so we could head to the suite to take advantage of our well our vantage point. Little did we know our wedding stalking would turn into hysterics. Take a look…

A Goff is Getting Married!

She is the last of the three Goff girls to go. Jenny Kim will say “I do” next summer but the planning has already begun! I was honored to be asked to be her “Matron of Honor.” I loved how she did it too. She gave me  take out box filled with chocolate covered fortune cookies. When I broke one open the message inside popped the question.

What other creative ways to ask someone to be a part of your big day are there? When I got married I sent cookies in the shape of dresses out to my girls. They were newsprint bridal cookies that read like a paper… and in the text was the name of friend followed with “be my bridesmaid?” A fitting way to ask given my line of work in news. Stay tuned for ‘Jenny Getting Married’ updates. I just love weddings and this will be real fun to follow.


Wedding dress shopping

We were SO excited to go with our bride-to-be Heather Brown wedding gown shopping!  She found one she really liked and we did too. Picture? Of course we’re not gonna show you. All I can say is that she looked beautiful. While at the boutique some really pretty sashes caught our eyes. I also found a great look for any future M.O.B. Following some gown gazing… a revisit to our good ole’ days together down South. The BBQ Fest was going on at Madison Square Park.. and despite the rain the scene wasn’t anything less than porkfection.


Royal Wedding: Local brides pursue Princess gown

We venture to Carine’s Bridal in Georgetown where we learn the Royal Wedding has princess gowns soaring in popularity. PS- and we get to play dress up!

WUSA9's Kristin Fisher Marries

Congrats are in order for WUSA9’s Kristin Fisher. Our former morning show reporter (she’s moved to the day shift …sniff ) married her true love Walker over the weekend. The gorgeous ceremony was held at The Church of the Holy City in DC… and a rockin’ reception with an extraordinary view followed at the Hay-Adams Hotel. Highlights included a jaw-dropping beautiful bridal gown, a sweetly executed toast by the bride’s sister Kara and out-of-this world party favors: moon pies and freeze-dried ice cream. Hey what do you expect from a bride who is the daughter of two NASA astronauts. It was great to catch up with some 9NEWS colleagues too.. Jessica Doyle, Andrea Roane and Larry Lewis. I think it’s fair to say from all of us.. best and bright wishes to the newlyweds!
