This month marks 4 years since Black Sheep Bride originally launched. What a whirlwind of experiences this brand has brought me (Danielle). What started as an idea on a humanitarian trip in West Africa grew into a massive community of impact-driven wedding couples, vendors, and brands. It has been a complete privilege and honor to build this disruptive platform from scratch. I’ve learned so much about how amazingly kind people can be and I’m grateful to have gotten to know each and every one of you directly or indirectly through the blog and social media.
This past year has been full of a lot of changes and obstacles (health-related) for my family. All is well now, but we’ve been really diligent about making space for this next season of life. It took me roughly a year, several chats with wise mentors, and a trip to Atlanta to come to a place where I could acknowledge it was time to release BSB and it’s BIG VISION into the hands of someone new. That ‘someone’ ended up being Emily Bivens. This has been an emotional week for me, but I have found peace knowing that BSB will be entering into a new season of expansion and growth with her fresh, passionate, and generous spirit leading the way. She has some big plans and we are all thrilled to watch as the brand grows into a something greater than ever imagined.

Emily is a follower of Jesus, photographer, wife to her high school sweetheart, Blake, and mommy to a baby boy due soon. The Bivens live wherever Blake’s baseball career takes them in their tiny home on wheels, a camper.
