Diane and Mark February 22, 2014
This was my first winter wedding and they were calling for snow, snow and more snow! Now if you live here this is always a welcomed forecast, but if you are traveling here for a wedding, this can sometimes rattle your nerves. But that was not the case for Diane and Mark. They were unbelievably laid back and calm (even when the linen company forgot to send the special order linens!!). Easy-going is the one essential word I would use to describe them, and in love. They were so excited to get married that they knew everything else would fall in to place.
The wedding day came and the snow continued to fall. Guests could not believe how much snow we were getting. They all came in brushing snow off their coats and smiling. The ceremony started and the when Diane walked down the aisle, I don't think I have seen a bigger smile that the one on Mark's face when he first saw her. After the ceremony ended, it was time to take some pictures in the snow! The photographer and I were very excited to see how the pictures were going to come out as snow can make things look very romantic!! After the pictures and a little alone time, the couple joined their guests and the party began. Dinner was served and shortly after the dancing started. The Diane and Mark originally thought guest would be ready to settle in for the night by 10pm but when 10pm rolled around, the guests wanted more. I asked the couple if they wanted to wrap it up or keep it going and they both said they wanted the guests to be happy so crank up the music!!
It was a beautiful day for a wonderful couple! Thank you Diane and Mark for letting me be part of your day!

Rick and FabiSeptember 15, 2012
I know Rick and Fabi well. Not as well as Boyfriend though, they are what you might call "his friends." When I heard they were getting married I was pretty excited to be a guest at a wedding. Then they asked me to help with the planning and I was even more excited.
Working with clients helping them to plan the wedding is a very intimate experience. We discuss money, family dynamics, health concerns and personal style to name just a few of the topics that come up. You see, to build a relationship with a client is to ensure a wonderful wedding. The more the wedding planner knows, the more they can anticipate the needs and wants of the bride and groom. The wedding planner really becomes an integral, personal part of the wedding experience. By the time the wedding day comes, I can anticipate that the bride will love the way the guest book is set up, but dislike the family photos display and rearrange it without calling her. I can anticipate that the mom will want a Diet Coke when she arrives at the reception and have it waiting for her. This relationship translates to a beautiful, fun and stress free day of celebration for the bride and groom. During my time working with Rick and Fabi I really enjoyed learning more about these friends. I learned how much Fabi loves her job as a preschool teacher and how much Rick loves a tasty red wine. After the whole experience, I like to think of Rick and Fabi as "our friends" not just "his friends."
