real wedding: janelle & gio 8/30/2014

I was so excited to work with Janelle & Gio on their August wedding! Hotel Maya was the perfect location for their beach themed affair. We used shades of blue with white, ivory and sand, to create a fresh, bright, beach tone for the event. I LOVED the driftwood that was incorporated everywhere, Pixies Petals…

my favorite things: mirror details

Looking for a little “wow” factor in your decor? Oh, what a little shine can bring! One of my favorite things to see at an event is mirror details. Clean and modern, yet feminine, this touch can really add something special to your set up. For a few weddings this year, rather than escort cards, we had…

real wedding: jamie & dj 7/12/2013

I am very lucky that over the years I have spent nearly nothing on advertising. All of my business comes from referrals, which is so personal to me. When a past couple refers me to another couple, it is a huge compliment! Jamie and DJ were given my name by Branden (a past groom from 2011)…

trend alert: sparkles!

Adding a little sparkle to your wedding is a trend that is here to stay! It is no secret that I love the bling, so to see a little sparkle incorporated into my events over the past few seasons has brought a huge smile to my face! Sequins, rhinestones, and glitter can be incorporated into your…

trend alert: little showstoppers

To have children, or not to have children at your wedding is ALWAYS a topic of conversation! Some brides love the idea of the little ones joining in the wedding festivities, other brides dream of a child-free adult celebration. But, regardless of your views on children as guests at your event, I think we can…

real wedding: lisa & michael 10/6/12

I remember exactly when we met…. it was a bridal show in Newport Beach in January of ’12. I talked to so many brides that day, but this one, Lisa, really stuck out to me. She was so sweet, and her family was just as great. We chatted about her wedding, a little about her…

Another amazing October wedding coming your way! I met Marissa and Chris in a very interesting way….. but I believe that it was fate that brought us together! It was a random weeknight, and after a gym workout, I met my husband at Corner Bakery for a quick bite to eat. We ordered and I took a…
