A Wedding Planner’s Wedding “More than just the wedding…”

A Wedding Planner’s Wedding Bonus Blog:

I’m here writing to remind all brides that when you are getting stressed out about all the wedding details and plans, what you need to remember  is:  this is more than just a wedding, this is a marriage!

I will tell you now that yes, things will go wrong on your big day, but no, it is NOT the end of the world! You won’t remember that the DJ played a wrong song, or that the Vegan dessert was lost, or there was a type of flower that you didn’t like in your centerpieces.

What you will remember is the love that you felt, the sheer joy and happiness that  the day will bring, and what the wedding really means. You are committing to one person for the rest of your lives; one person that you are promising to love forever, and that is no small thing!

Marriage is wonderful, it’s: having someone on your side, no matter what, never having to do the horrible things alone, getting to fall asleep and wake up to the person that you love the most, having someone to vent to when your day was bad, having someone to celebrate with when things are great, knowing the ins and outs of a person- what really makes them tick, realizing that your vows are really for better or worse, and walking hand in hand with the person you want to be beside forever.

Marriage is work, but it is the best kind of work there is, and it is not worth giving up on!

So when you are stressed beyond belief, dealing with RSVP’s and seating charts and napkin colors, remember that at the end of that very special day, those little things won’t really matter, but the life-long commitment that you made will!

Now go enjoy your time with your fiancé, and if you still need help, call on us professionals, and let US worry about the details!

A Wedding Planner’s Wedding “THE BIG DAY!!!”

I woke up at 8AM the morning of September 27th, 2013 with a calm and joy about me that I have never felt before: It was THE BIG DAY!!!

I jumped in the shower, hair and makeup was going to arrive any minute…

And the rest went like a little something like this:

yasmine083 yasmine124 yasmine122

yasmine145yasmine153 yasmine160












yasmine540 yasmine538 yasmine543








Our wedding was the best day of our lives! Yes, there were little things that went wrong, (if you looked closely you may have noticed that Vincent was wearing a cast on his left hand; that’s because he broke it 2 days before the wedding!) little mishaps along the way, but overall it was perfect for us!

There was a moment during the reception, a moment when everyone was dancing, and I looked around the room, at my new husband, at my family and friends, and I felt the love, the excitement, the joy of this amazing day, and I just wanted to bottle that feeling up and hold onto it forever.

So that is what I wish for every couple, to get that feeling on their wedding day that they will want to bottle up and cherish for the rest of their lives! Thank you for sharing this journey with me, and Happy Planning!
