Feeling beautiful on your wedding day can sometimes be an overlooked detail. Feeling flawless and confident in your skin is key to walking down that aisle with a smile on your face so you can focus and be present.
In the midst of all the planning, have you given thought to that moment when you say I do? One of your wedding planning tasks should be to review wedding ceremony ideas and traditions. My bride, Steph was interested in her options for ceremony styles, which is why I'd like to dedicate this post to her.

As a planner, one of my favorite venues in Orange County, Ca is The Villa wedding venue in San Juan Capistrano. It has the quaintest home, the most intimate courtyard and amazing service. It was made for an intimate celebration and a crowd with a sophisticated palette for good food. It's nestled in the quaintest little area near The Mission San Juan Capistrano.
I noticed, lately, that potential couples are concerned about these major services and not sure if I include them in my collections. Here are the top 5 things that you didn't know that I do.
When you hire a wedding event manager, you’re not hiring a personal assistant. You’re hiring an expert with years of experience in their field. They know how to handle stress, deal with bickering vendors, assign duties, manage expectations, logistically...

Here is a short list of my personal wedding day horror stories. I've also reached out to my wedding planner community to hear the things that they've gone through to resolve horrific issues on their couples special day.
A lot of times when I meet with couples and provide them with new ideas or solutions to their problems, a sigh of relief quickly follows. As if they were feeling suffocated for who knows how long trying to do things a certain way. I loathe those magazines or books that make you think you need
I want to let you in on a wedding planning tip / secret. If you’re in a similar situation or even if you think you’ve got it all figured out, there is a service that planners offer called “Consulting.” Not all planners offer it but they're out there...
