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!

Keep Calm It's Not Too Late to Enjoy Your Wedding Day

There must be something in the air this year. In the last few weeks, more than a handful of couples (or their moms) contacted us looking for a Day Of wedding planner for a very fast approaching wedding. The weddings are this year, this summer and in many cases less than four weeks a way. Keep calm brides-to-be (grooms, moms and maids of honor) it is not too late to hire a Day Of wedding planner. You are almost at the altar, the planning is done, DIY decor is sitting in boxes, friends are packing their suitcases and your shoes are ready for dancing. Day Of wedding planners are here too help make the vision of your wedding day a reality. Be sure to ask for custom packages since the date is so close, knowing your specific concerns are addressed will save you stress. This close to your wedding date here are the top five reasons why you should still hire a Day Of wedding planner: 1. Enjoy your wedding day. Peace of mind that all your planning will come together as you envision. The father of the bride wanders off just before the father-daughter dance, your Day Of wedding planner will find him and make sure he has his dancing shoes on.

2. Someone else to answer questions. You sip champagne while someone else answers questions from vendors, keeps the day on schedule, guides the guests from the ceremony, to cocktail hour, to dinner, to dancing and away at the end of the night.

3.  A pro to handle last minute snafus. Every wedding has a few unexpected snafus and a Day Of wedding planner can keep attention away and usually solve the problem before anyone knows (even the bride and groom). Snafus range from sudden wind blowing the escort cards away to running out of toilet paper in the bathrooms to non-functioning generators.

4. A smooth ceremony. Your Day Of wedding planner can quickly and efficiently run your ceremony rehearsal so that you can get to your welcome dinner. More importantly you can walk down the aisle with a huge smile knowing that everyone is standing where they should be, when they should be.

5. Wedding emergency kits. Wedding planners come armed with a tote bag full of items to mend, glue, re-write and fix endless situations. Did you know white chalk will conceal stains and smudges on a wedding dress? Your Day Of wedding planner knows that and has white chalk in her bag.
