Lu Anne and OP came to us just a few weeks before their event. OP would soon be the Captain of the USS Enterprise. They wanted to plan a party to celebrate with all of their friends the Change of Command. The plan was to throw a party after the Change of Command and in the middle of the party...surprise guests...they're getting married! It was so FUN!!! It worked out perfectly! I worked with some amazing vendors that night, and we all had a blast. Lu Anne wrote me a sweet review on WeddingWire. I was so touched by her review, but really loved this part of it...

Jenny and Joey were such a FUN couple! Joey is a navy jet pilot, which made the Aviation Museum such a perfect location for their ceremony and reception. Joey's grandfather flew the Corsair so next to it we had a picture of his grandfather flying the plane. It was such a beautiful touch in memory of him. Chris Bickford Photography is the talent behind these amazing photos, Helga Macko did an amazing job on the floral arrangements, Catering Concepts was so great to work with, Creative Cakes and Desserts created the perfect sleek design in keeping with the couples theme, and Pike Media Resource created the amazing ambience for dinner and a lively light show as the evening picked up. It couldn't have been a more perfect evening!
Jenny and Joey, we wish you all the best! Thank you for letting us share in one of the most important days of your lives!!

I was chatting with a dear colleague today, Missy, and I shared with her an "Oh my goodness" moment from this past weekend's wedding. She encouraged me to share the story in hopes that if anyone is ever faced with the same predicament that it may save you and your bride from tears!
We had a wedding this past weekend in a beautiful venue with amazing vendors, and a fun bride and groom. It truly was a wonderful evening! (We wish you all the best, Matt and Allison!) During the evening a guest came over to hug the bride with red wine in her hand (please guests...this is really a no no).. Well, you guessed it...red wine down the back of the bride’s gown..."OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!!" One of my assistants for the evening is also a colleague (Professional Bridal Consultant), and dear friend, Julie Morgan. She and I grabbed our emergency kits and went to work. The bride’s gown looked great when we were done so I thought I would share the tricks.
We started with a cloth and dabbed the excess red wine out of the gown. We then dipped the cloth into a glass of white wine. This got quite a bit of the red stain out. Then we dipped the cloth into club soda and got almost all of it out. Of course we only dabbed, rubbing could spread the stain as well as drive it deeper into the gown. We then applied baby powder (talcum not cornstarch) this masked any faint stain that was left. When we were done you could not tell that there had been an almost catastrophe with the dreaded red wine. Don't get me wrong I love red wine, just not around a bride in a gorgeous gown!!! My suggestion: Keep talcum powder in your emergency kit.
If you have any other "save the day" tips I would LOVE to hear them! Feel free to post them =)

So I have a dear friend who is getting married this summer in Florida. She and her fiance are both chefs. I just love their theme and I wanted to share it with all of you! Early on in their relationship they had a discussion on what spice best described them. The bride chose red pepper and the groom chose cumin. This is a part of their love story and they have decided to share it with the guests at their wedding. For their favors they are mixing up a spice rub that will have the predominate flavors of red pepper and cumin. SO FUN! In carrying this theme throughout their wedding they have chosen to have the flowers contain fresh herbs. The fragrance will be breathtaking. Their wedding is tailored to who they are as a couple and because of all of these personal touches their wedding will be unforgettable! Make sure that your love story and your theme carries throughout your entire wedding and it will be a day to remember.

Here is a beautiful bouquet incorporating peacock feathers from flickr.com. One of the hottest trends in 2010 is using the colors and textures of the peacock feather. It is both elegant and fun. I LOVE how it is used simply in this bouquet and yet still makes a statement. What are some of the fun things you are incorporating in your 2010 wedding?
