steve & kelsea – august 2, 2014

They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck. I’m positive luck had nothing to do with bringing these two together. When I first met Kelsea, I knew instantly why Steve chose her to spend the rest of his life with. Aside from her beauty, she is patient, kind and loving – qualities that I know will make her the best wife and step-mom to Steve’s two adorable kiddos!

This day wasn’t only about Steve and Kelsea. It was about the four of them becoming a family. As I watched the kids interact with Kelsea throughout the day, it was evident that they absolutely adore her. Thirty minutes before the wedding began, it started to rain. But when it came time for the ceremony to start, the rain stopped. Perfect timing for Kelsea to make her entrance with her father. After a beautiful ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktail hour and then a fabulous reception overlooking the golf course and beautiful Pacific Ocean coastline.

Some of my favorite details from their wedding were the venue, bridesmaids’ dresses, and ceremony flowers. Kelsea did a great job picking flowers that paired perfectly with the grey dresses and suits. The flowers also complimented the beautiful architecture of the reception space.

{Steve & Kelsea – Thank you so much for trusting me with your big day. I loved watching the two of you say your “I do’s” and the four of you become a family. Your wedding was beautiful, just like the two of you and I hope that married life is treating you well. Congratulations!}

little b’s first birthday

I always dreamed of having a little girl. A little mini-me that I could play dress-up with, take on fun shopping dates, play tea party with and all that fun girly stuff. Then, just a week shy of Christmas, my sweet baby girl arrived. My little B is such a huge blessing to our family. She is the happiest little girl and so full of personality. She’s sweet, cuddly, a little feisty and at times a little crazy! She definitely keeps us on our toes and we couldn’t imagine our life without her.

When it came to planning her first birthday, I knew I wanted to do something different. Something that you wouldn’t see walking down the aisle at Party City. Although that would have made my life about ten times easier. But hey, that’s what happens when you’re a wedding and event planner. I decided to go with a “Pow Wow” theme. Kind of like an Indian princess party – sorta. I found the cutest invitations on Etsy (my go-to for all things party related) and based the colors off of that – shades of pinks, purple and gold. For a few months leading up to her birthday, I worked on the details of her party. I had so much fun creating all the decor and signage and making this party special for my little girl. I love how everything turned out and although she’s only one, I’m pretty sure my little one enjoyed her first birthday party too. Thanks again to all that came to help us celebrate this big milestone!

sarah & ryan – july 26, 2014

When I first met Sarah, I knew instantly we would click. Sarah and I are alike in many ways. One being her attention to detail and the other, being a bit of a perfectionist. Sarah is the type of girl who always takes care of others and makes sure everything is going as planned. So it was only natural that she treat her wedding the same way. When I found out that they wanted to hold the wedding in Sarah’s parents’ backyard, I was floored. I’m a total sucker for a backyard wedding. Especially when the backyard is AH-MAZING, like Better Homes and Gardens amazing!

Sarah and I, along with her mother, spent many meetings ironing out details, walking the venue, and working on timelines. They put so much time and effort coming up with every component of her wedding and it certainly paid off. To talk through it is one thing but to see it all unfolding right in front of us is another. It’s rare that brides get to see their wedding come together from the ground up. Throughout the day, Sarah caught glimpses of her wedding being set-up.  Her excitement grew as she watched the floral arch come together and saw her bouquets arrive. And then, it was that time. Time for Sarah to get into her dress. She had showed me pictures on her phone but they didn’t do it justice. Sarah was stunning – the dress was made for her. We lined everyone up for the ceremony and it came time for Sarah and her father to make their way down the aisle. Then it happened. I think it hit both of them at the same time and the tears flowed. It was such a special moment to witness and one that I won’t soon forget.

After the ceremony, guests made their way to cocktail hour which was held poolside. As guests mingled and sipped on cocktails, we worked on transforming the ceremony space to the reception. Of all the weddings I’ve done, these may be some of my favorite florals. From the beautiful arch, to the girls’ bouquets, to the gorgeous centerpieces, these flowers were unbelievable! I just loved the all white and ivory pieces that topped the candelabras. They were paired perfectly with pops of pink and coral at the base along with an assortment of mercury vases. After cocktail hour, guests dined on a fabulous meal provided by 24 Carrots and then danced the night away under the stars.  It was a perfect night.

{ Sarah & Ryan – I can’t express to you enough how thankful I am to have gotten to be a part of your wedding. You made me feel like part of your family and for that, I am so grateful. I truly enjoyed every single minute of your big day and couldn’t be happier for you both! Congratulations!! }
