April 21-A beautiful view at Oceanview

I may have mentioned to several of you that I've never had rain at a wedding (knock on wood!). With the rains on Friday, I was getting a bit nervous, considering my Saturday wedding was almost completely outdoors at Oceanview! With a bit of luck, and the help of some amazing vendors, the wedding was absolutely stunning! Concepts hung the lanterns, which looked spectacular at night. Amanda provided beautiful flowers (and also the beautiful first photo!), and Georgie satisfied many sweet "tooths" throughout the night. Stan and Jeanette and John and Norma were on hand to document the fun day. Kendra and Marcus, I've enjoyed every minute of getting to know you over the past year! Have a wonderful time in Fiji, congrats!

April 14-A Wild Wedding at the Park!

Most of you know that I am a huge animal lover. While all of my events are near and dear to me, I was especially excited to play with the animals at my Wild Animal Park wedding this weekend. The ceremony took place in the Heart of Africa, and was officiated by Holly. Daniel kept the crowds very happy dancing! I was very impressed with Leigh's work, and you can see more examples of her work and more of this wedding on her blog. All in all, it was an amazing day which really reflected my couple's personality and wonderful style. Besides, what other wedding can you go to, where you get to pet a hedgehog? I did, and it was great! Congrats Sarah and Rudy! Be sure to look at the amazing cake topper handcrafted by the Groom.

April 7th-Admiral Kidd Club

My wedding on the 7th was a great combination of traditional (such the Groom's uniform) and non-traditional (their first dance song was "Get Low."), which made for a really great party! I again worked with Mick, Shirley and Van Johnson. The bridal party was transported in style via trolley, and the dance floor was packed all night long. Though the bride and groom were in Italy for 99% of the planning, no detail was overlooked. The kid's table was stocked with Easter candy, and toothbrushes to get rid of cavaties! As they say in Italy, "Congratulazioni!"

April 1st-Opening Day!

My wedding this past Sunday definitely showed my bride and groom's love for baseball. The wedding, held at Tom Ham's Lighthouse, was full of touches from having guests sign a bat in lieu of a guest book, to naming tables as different areas of a ball park (like "Upper Deck") to bags of sunflower seeds and cracker jacks with a note to "Enjoy the Season!"

I was able to work with some old favorites: Bill Calhoun, who was also the DJ at my wedding, Linda of Something Borrowed and John of Aquario Studio. Marci and Corey, what a unique and fun day! I wish you both all the best!
