Hi! My name is Julianne Smith. I’m the owner and editor at United With Love. I live in Washington, DC in Glover Park with my husband and two kids (here and here and here). In my other life, I design stylish wedding garters as the owner of The Garter Girl. Many (many) years ago, I was a Washington, DC area bride and was married in St. Michaels, MD. You can see a few of my wedding pictures here.
