Feature Wedding in Magazine

It's always thrilling to see your weddings in magazines and I am lucky to have one of mine featured in the new issue of Sacramento Magazine's Our Wedding. Make sure you take a look at it: It was a fabulous Indian wedding that was earlier this year. Anu and Mithu were a joy to work with and they added lots of personal elements to make the wedding reflect their unique style. It was a multi-day event with customary Indian ceremonies that led up to an amazing Sikh wedding with 700 guests and culminated with an evening reception at the Radisson in Sacramento. The evening reception started off with a hign school marching band leading the bride & groom into the room. Amazing lighting, gobos, fabric swags, custom mongrams, and creative florals by Flouish added to the glitz. As the evening continued the food was abundant and the dancing and festivities continued into the night. It was a night to remember...for the couple, the guests, and definately for my staff. Happy Reading!

A Family Wedding in the Poconos

We are home from the Poconos; a lovely Thanksgiving with lots of family and a perfect wedding. Diane and Dave were married on Saturday at the lovely 250+ year old Shawnee Presbyterian Church. The reception followed at the Shawnee Inn with a wonderful 5-course dinner and lots of mingling and dancing. It was a perfect day and a wonderful week for our family.

With the final wedding complete for 2008 we are looking forward to the holidays and a busy 2009. We are back home and preparing for the holiday season. We encourage our brides to take it easy in December and we follow our own advise. Our December schedule will be Tues-Friday, from 11am to 3pm. We will be checking emails and voice mails continually, but may be a bit slower in our response.

Don't forget to support the Davis Boy Scouts and Brycen's Troop 66. The Wershings will be working at the Boy Scout Christmas Tree Lot on Thursday, December 4, from 5-9pm and on Saturday, December 20, from 9am to 1pm. Come on by and say "hello" and pick up your tree, or if that time doesn't work out come by anytime. Thanks for your support!

Some New Finds!

I've decided to add a new page to my website and call it my "store". I'm going to offer some unique items for the bride and others who might want to add some excitement to their party or event. The Couture Candy Station is my first item, but keep an eye on it for more will come!
I'm constantly surfing the internet trying to find new "cool" items for my brides. I've decide to start listing some of the interesting things that I have found. The "links" list is at the bottom of my blog page.

I'll be travelling next week and spending time with my family for the holiday. I'm excited about the wedding in the Poconos Mountains that I've been working on...it's a joy to be a part of any wedding, but especially memorable when the wedding couple will continue to be a part of your life. I'll keep you posted on that exciting wedding and hopefully have some great photos when I return.
Talk soon!

Mystical Romance

Laura and Ryan were a joy to work with from beginning to end. The only mishap was weeks ago when Ryan broke his leg playing football. He managed on Saturday with merely a cane and now the two are happy newlyweds. We had a wonderful time with an outdoor evening ceremony at the Gazebo at Lake Natoma Inn. It was an overcast day, perfect for photos, and as the evening arrived there was cool mist and a light sprinkling. We held out for the outdoor ceremony and it was well worth it. The misty evening created a romantic glow on a very tender ceremony. The evening continued under the beautifully swagged fabric ceilings in the Pavilion. It was an incredible evening of family, love, and celebration. Congratulations Laura & Ryan and thank you for letting us be a part of your day!

Newport News!

After spending the past 3 days in Newport Beach with some of the the most amazing wedding planners in the industry, I've been rejuvenated and reminded that to stay on top of the game you must constantly reinvent yourself. So here I am, back from the Association of Bridal Consultants national conference less than 24 hours and starting this, sure to become addiction, blog.

We had a great time in Newport learning, visiting with old friends and making many new. The Fairmont Hotel was lovely and the local ABC members created some amazing rooms for us. Surprisingly, our Sacramento Team received 2nd place in the event storyboard competition, even though we all thought we'd done a terrible job and were going to be laughed out of the ballroom...shows what perfectionist we are!
A huge highlight of the conference was meeting Colin Cowie again. His presentation was fabulous and he is such a genuine and nice man. Every person there fell in love with him.

More to come as I get accustomed to writing on this thing...
