Wedding’s Over…Where Are We Going Now?

We survived the wedding weekend…and boy oh boy was it FABULOUS!Casey's wedding photos being taken on the shores of downtown Chicago Casey and Finn's wedding party

If you follow us on Instagram, then you probably got a sneak peek of the big magical day. Here are some of our behind-the-scenes photos when Casey officially became Mrs. Finn. <<— we still can’t believe it!!!!

Don’t worry, we’ll be gushing about all the wedding details over the next few weeks, but oddly enough- we have more BIG NEWS to announce.

The breaking news?! We’re going on a trip…together… this week! No, the newlyweds are not jetsetting off on their honeymoon (they’re saving that for 2015)…instead these 2 rookies are going on a little business trip. (If you’re chuckling at the sound of that, don’t worry- that makes all of us. Us? business trip? together? 2 days after Casey’s wedding?)

Is it strange that Casey is deserting her new husband during the first week of their marriage? Yes…probably definitely. But when one of your favorite companies invites you to participate in an amazing opportunity… well, sometimes you just can’t say “no”. So instead of a honeymoon starting 2 days after Casey’s wedding, we are taking a bestie-moon.

We’re heading to NEW YORK CITY baby!

Bridget and Casey are ready for a post-wedding girls trip

You know… the BIG APPLE!

Bridget and Casey are ready for a post wedding girls trip to New York

Earlier this year, Lowe’s Home Improvement contacted us about teaming up for some fun collaborations. We had such a great time working with them on our patio makeover, so it was a no brainer to continue our relationship with the rock star team over at Lowe’s.  They recently asked if we wanted to take a trip to the Big Apple to create a Vine for their #LowesFixInSix campaign.

Post-wedding girls trip? Sign the DIY Rookies up!After squealing, jumping up and down, and saying “woo” a bunch way too many times…we calmed down and professionally said, “Sounds delightful, please let us know details.” all the while thinking, “OMG, they want us?! Let’s just say yes before they change their minds!”

All bags packed and ready for a weekend in the big appleSo fast forward a few weeks and we’re now heading to NYC…tomorrow! (Of course still thinking, “OMG, they still want us?”). In true blog fashion, we will of course share all of the details with you guys along the way. Behind the scenes of our video shoot, the offices at Buzzfeed (that’s where we’re shooting them! sayyyy whhhaaaattt?!), and pics of all of the places we visit while we’re in the Big Apple. Be sure to follow us on Instagram for the latest happenings and tune in next week for the VINE reveal and the NYC recap.

Bridget and Casey are ready for a quick trip to the Big Apple!Until then, go check out some of the vines from the #LowesFixInSix campaign. They’re phenomenal…so creative and entertaining. Fingers crossed our vine will be just as amazing! #pressureson
