Bravotv.com: Any updates on the new home, and how has the first year of married life been?

Arden Upton: We are working hard on finalizing our plans for our new home at Windwood. Both William and I win on the size, we are starting small with a master plan that is expandable as our lives and family grow (we are working on trying for a family too). The style is very old world European with lots of textures and of course a great view of the entire farm.

Our first year of married life has been very exciting. We have done a good bit of traveling together with the horses who are doing great in the show ring. William is working on his pilot license and I am loving documenting the process, it is a life long dream of his to have his to fly. We will celebrate our one year anniversary in Charleston, South Carolina as well as my 35th birthday.

Arden: Life has been super busy. We are expecting a record number of beautiful weddings to photograph at Arden Photography in locations everywhere from St. Bart’s to Colorado. Windwood Weddings business is growing quickly and we have a full calendar of fall weddings at the farm. Brides are loving the courtyard, just like we did, for their wedding receptions. I will have a temporary exhibit of my Equus Collection photographs in the Gadsden Museum of Art and I continue to add to the collection of photos with horses from all over the world. Most recently, I added photos from Snow Polo in Cortina, Italy. Soon I will put the final touches on an outline for a wedding book. I have been present at over 700 weddings and looking forward to sharing my insider knowledge with brides across the country.

Bravotv.com: What was your favorite moment from the show this Season?

Arden: My favorite moment was when Jaime turned the “fish out of water theme” table on us and we went to NJ. I loved dressing up in my roller girl outfit even though I was the only one ready for the theme party. It was exciting for people to see the lighter side of my personality. The moment reminded me of a scene from Legally Blonde.

Bravotv.com: What did you learn this Season?

Arden: I learned a lot this season. I loved getting closer to all the girls on the show! We have had so much fun together. I have enjoyed interacting with our viewers and fans. What I learned is everyone has a story and everyone wants the same things. It is awesome that this show really allows viewers the ability to see the positive and uplifting side of female relationships and that we can all be inspired by each other.

Bravotv.com: What have you been up to since this Season of Jersey Belle ended?

Haley Young: Since Jersey Belle ended, I have followed on of my dreams and opened my Fit-Workout Studio. I launched www.fit-workouts.com during the show. October 1st is the grand opening of my new Studio right down the street from Studio Fitness, my current gym where I focus keeping pre and post pregnancy females in shape. I am single, turning 30 next year and entering a new chapter in my life that I am very excited about.

Bravotv.com: What was your favorite moment from the show this Season?

Haley: My favorite moment from the show is when we all went out to Arden's Farm and had a weekend to ourselves. Everyone is so busy and focused on their families, husbands and jobs. It was so great to have a girls weekend where we could all let loose, relax and be with some of the people we care about the most! I loved seeing Jaime out of her element. She did not know what to do, but honestly think she relaxed for once!  Growing up in South Georgia, I miss the "Farm" and "Southern" outdoors. Being out of Birmingham, riding gators, shooting guns, and seeing nature brought me back to my roots.

Bravotv.com: What did you learn this Season? 

Haley: I learned so much about myself this past year. I have grown as a person and am comfortable in my own skin. I look up to every one of the girls on the show and they have been here for me through it all! Jaime has always supported me, shot me straight, and is most of the time right. . .I have learned that no matter what, you can always lean on your friends. Jersey Belle was a true eye opener for me. It made me realize that I can break out of my "bubble" and be who I am. I am so thankful for this opportunity!
