A Message from our Co-Founders
We are Christin & Adam Healey, newlyweds based in beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia. We came up with the idea for Borrowed & Blue while planning our own wedding here about a year ago.
As a bride, I spent countless hours online browsing wedding photos and wishing I could use the vendors in the pictures for our own wedding! We found that existing wedding sites offer oodles of inspiration, but just aren't very helpful for researching venues & vendors in our area. As a result, planning our wedding was very time-consuming and involved hours and hours searching on Google to figure out where to get married and who could help us create our dream wedding.
We created Borrowed & Blue to help brides (and grooms!) imagine, plan, and share their locally inspired weddings, all in one place. We want your wedding planning to be fun, beautiful, and hassle-free, so you can get back to what is really important - your engagement!
Here's what you can do on Borrowed & Blue:
We know how hard you've worked for all that beauty! When the dust settles, upload your photos and tell us all about your special day — we'll create a beautiful page to share with family & friends.
Welcome to our family! We hope you enjoy using Borrowed & Blue as much as we enjoyed creating it.
