The Wedding Blog
For me, a celebration is a way of life. I want every occasion to be the most joyous affair to recognize a special moment in time. Having planned events and weddings for over 30 years, it became apparent to me that it’s seldom all about one day; often the event host is saddled with lots of decisions or tricky scenarios that may fall outside the typical relationship with an event professional.
And I wanted to change that.
After having befriended and worked with hundreds of brides and grooms, I wanted to provide a platform to empower brides and grooms with the knowledge and know-how around all things weddings and events. In my time, the most successful events are those in which the hosts feel confident in all the elements that make up their special day.
This space is designed with you in mind to give honest and useful event-planning advice. Think of it like having a discussion with a close friend that tells it like it is -who also happens to be a kind and compassionate event professional! Together we’re going to walk through buying everything, and I mean everything, for your wedding day outfit. We’re going to navigate the world of champagne, bridal gowns, tuxedos, table settings and chat through the do’s and don’ts of bridal showers.
