Kristen Rocco 

When your script flips from casual dating to dating for marriage, you begin to look at every relationship from a different lens and ask yourself, Could he be the one? The answer to this tough question comes down to whether or not he checks off all your non-negotiables. Most people overlook red flags on their deal-breaker list in hopes that someone they have chemistry with will change their behavior or come around to a different way of thinking. If you’re wondering how to know if he’s the one, passion and chemistry are important. But it’s not everything.

Telling Your Love Story

Save The Date Podcast

Aleisha McCormack

There’s one aspect of a wedding that many couples neglect to share on their big day and that’s their love story…how you came to be, standing there in front of a bunch of people. There are hundreds if not thousands of memories and experiences that you created together…the highs and lows, the foundation of your love and relationship. 


There are so many ways to integrate these fabulous stories into your wedding day that are quirky and creative, subtle and fun. Today’s guest is Kristen Rocco, a journalist and PR specialist who ditched her corporate career to put her professional storytelling, writing and interviewing skills to work in order to help couples create an important piece of their family legacy.

Have You Ever Heard Of A Love Storyteller?

We Love Love Notery

SouthernBride.com

Scottie Key

 

Every couple has a love story. It’s the question you’re always asked before you say I Do… “How did you guys meet?” “How did he ask you out?” “How did he propose?” And let’s face it, it’s our favorite story to tell. Your eyes light up and your heart skips a beat talking about the day when you and the love of your life first met. That pivotal point in history when your lives changed forever. It’s your first date, your first kiss, your first time meeting his family, and the moment he asked you to be his bride. Leading up to your wedding, it’s important to remember why you’re spending all of that time and money planning. To take a step back reminisce on everything that led up to “I do.”

 

That’s where Love Notery comes in. Kristen Rocco, a professional writer, story-teller, and entrepreneur, is your personal journalist to document every sweet detail of your love story. 

How The Bachelor Is Ruining Love

Refinery29

Kristen Rocco 

 

I’ve been a Bachelor viewer since season 1. I can barely believe that I’ve dedicated 14 years' worth of Monday nights to watching women come and go, men cry, upwards of 500 repetitions of the question "Will you accept this rose?", and more emotional breakdowns than I can count. It's been an entertaining ride — but also a more insidious one than I would have believed as I sat rapturously watching the first season as a college freshman.

4 Ways To Include Your Love Story In Your Wedding Day

Something Turquoise

Kristen Rocco 

 

When I was planning my own wedding back in 2013, it never occurred to me to include our love story in the elements of our wedding day. Your love story is all those moments, big and small, over the span of your relationship that created the foundation of your love for each other. If I could do it over, I would have thought harder about how to incorporate little details into my special day that created a story for my wedding guests about how Greg (my now husband) and I fell in love.

The wedding, it’s expected. Months and perhaps years have been put into planning this special day, but what about the back story? How did these two souls among billions meet? And what more, how did they fall in love? It’s a simple premise that can easily lose itself in the pomp and circumstance of a wedding ceremony.

 

Yet it is this element of a couple’s love story — its foundation — where Love Notery finds its niche.

I can unequivocally say that every love story is different. Each has its own twists and turns that represents all the defining moments of a couple's relationship. Even in the days of online dating where you might imagine that "how we met" stories stack up similarly, there are nuances to every circumstance that makes it wildly different than the last.

 

But there are some similarities too. Not in the specific details, but when you look close enough, you can see themes that shine through to be the rule rather than the exception.

Why You Probably Shouldn't Plan a Bachelorette Party Weekend

Thinking of planning a trip for your bachelorette party? You'd better plan accordingly, or you could lose some friends.

 

It’s almost wedding season. We know that couples are spending more on their weddings these days; more than $30,000 according to a study by The Knot. It even costs a lot more just to attend a wedding, averaging $592 per guest according to American Express. But there's another big expense that often burdens the friends of the wedding couple: the bachelorette party.

7 Things To Know For The First Year Of Marriage

Brides.com

Whitney C. Harris 

 

For newlyweds, marriage is filled with so many hopes and expectations. With that in mind, we asked recent brides who've been married five or fewer years for their advice on that first critical year.

 

Kristen Rocco, Founder of Love "The transition from 'I' to 'we' can be a difficult one. Even as you're dating, you still mostly operate independently, but after you get married and settle into your new life together, the meaning of partnership becomes infinitely more important. Now your finances are tied, family vacations are done as a duo, and your last name becomes one. All of this equals a shift in identity. The more newlyweds can maintain open communication and compromise, they create healthy communication patterns and trust for each other that strengthen the bond." — Notery

Honeymoons sound like a magical time, a way to get to know each other even better, and relax after the crazy wedding planning. But they can also be incredibly expensive, and a lot of us simply aren't going to have them in the cards right after our wedding — or at all. But that doesn't mean we can't mark the occasion with something equally special. There are plenty of fun things to do after the wedding you and your partner probably haven't considered.
