Personalized Wrapping Paper

Want a unique wrap for favors and/or bridal party gifts...then use personalized wrapping paper. Personalized wrapping can be designed in your wedding colors and the font of your choosing. Images 1-3 can be found at Erin Condren. Images 4-7 can be found at Namemaker. I have personally ordered from Namemaker and they provide excellent service. If you are a fan of Oprah, you may have seen Namemaker on Oprah's Favorite Things List.

Ross Knight Photography

I was first introduced to Ross Oscar Knight Photography when I received an email of an engagement slideshow that he did. This slideshow made me feel like I was there in the room during the proposal and the various readings by family members or friends. Whenever a groom to be or friend talks about capturing their proposal on film, I always think about that slideshow. Since this was always in the back of my mind, I decided to check out Ross Oscar Knight Photography website. He does amazing work. No matter what he is shooting, whether an engagement session or a wedding, his pictures make you feel like you are there and in the moment. The pictures above can be found on his website and/or blog. I am always in awe of photographers that can make you feel like you are there at the exact moment that everyhting is taking place, especially since the pictures are the one thing that you will have after the wedding besides the dress. Ross Knight is willing to travel which is a blessing to any bride and groom that wants fabulous pictures after their wedding day and for years to come.

44th President

Michelle hugs Barack after Inaugural Luncheon

President Barack Obama & First Lady Michelle Obama
walking down the capitol steps.

There is so much that I want to share but the most important is about our new President, Barack Obama. There were many events planned across the United States in celebration of the inauguration of Barack Obama. It was great to see millions of people come together in celebration of the first African American President and history in the making. The inauguration of President Barack Obama could not come at a better day than the day after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday celebration. It is always nice to see the love that Barack and Michelle share and today was no different. Michelle looked beautiful as well as their daughters. I am so excited about what the future holds and the change that will take place like so man.

Bridal Show

On Saturday, January 10, we participated in our first bridal show of the year. The show was held at the Wyndham Orange County Hotel in Costa Mesa. This year's show had a few of the vendors from last year's show. The majority of the vendors were new. We met a lot of brides that are getting married in 2010. We are excited to be one of the Wyndham's preferred professionals which can be seen on Elegala at http://resources.elegala.com/venues/523-wyndham-hotel-orange-county. The Wyndham is a beautiful hotel and has a gorgeous area by the lake for wedding ceremonies. We are excited to be a preferred professional and to work with the staff at the Wyndham.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!!! We have finally joined the world of blogging. 2008 was a wonderful year. We created wonderful friendships with our clients and gained new friendships with vendors that we met at networking events or through our clients. 2008 was a year of learning, re-evaluating and improving the business.

We are looking forward to 2009. We have some really exciting events, not just weddings coming up. Look for those in the upcoming year. We also revised our wedding packages to better suit our clients and give them more of a variety. Our packages changed due to our clients wanting more services and we were happy to provide those services to them.

We would like to thank those vendors that helped make all of our events such a huge success...Jill at M's Flowers, Tiffany at Yummy Cupcakes, Wen at Wentzu Photography, and all of our friends and family that supported us through out the year.
