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'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...
