What an amazing day at the Casa Romantica in San Clemente. These two families coming together was extraordinary to see and work with- they were all such lovely people.

When Tracy’s father saw her for the first time it was an overwhelming moment for all- love like this is incredible.

I am overjoyed for Tracy & Dana and feel blessed to have been a part of their special day!

More Details to Come…

Selecting your wedding officiant is an important decision – after all, they will have a huge influence on the tone of the ceremony. You’ll want to make sure that you find someone who is willing to perform the kind of ceremony you are envisioning, or who has a style and belief system similar to your own. And of course, if you want to make it legal, you’ll need to make sure that they are legally able to marry you in your state.

The first thing you and your intended bride or groom must do is decide if you want a religious or secular ceremony. This highly personal decision will obviously impact who will marry you. Secondly, your wedding planner should have experience with officiants that are fitting for your union- they have excellent recommendations with personal relationships that can make sure you have the right person for your special day.

officiant

Questions to ask your prospective officiant:

  • How much are we allowed to customize the ceremony? Can we write our own vows?
  • Will you marry us even if we are not current members of your church/synagogue/etc? How do we become members?
  • If we are of different faiths, or one of us is not religious, is that a problem?
  • One of us is divorced, does your religion allow you to marry us?
  • Are we required to attend any classes or counseling before the wedding?
  • Will our non-religious friends be allowed to participate in the ceremony, including giving readings, singing, or (if appropriate) taking communion?
  • How will you be dressed for the ceremony?

As a wedding planner, I find the best way to describe the importance and relief that my career carries is by looking at testimonials from real brides. The Knot has tons of reviews from brides and there’s a resounding undertone that having a planner certainly has its benefits, since you can enjoy other type of parties, since you can hire a party bus for your St. Louis trip which is great for a bachelor party.

“I LOVED my wedding planner. She designed my cemeromy and reception spaces and they were more than I could have ever imagined on my own. She was able to get me the best vendors at whole sale prices. She coordinated everything from the rehearsal dinner to the thank you brunch. I live 1.5 hours from where the wedding was held and it was a huge time, money and stress saver to use her.” written by ‘vignesle’ on The Knot

“I wholeheartedly recommend a planner. They don’t just “plan” – they serve as a neutral third party that can settle decisions between family members, future in-laws, etc. Mine keeps track of every dollar paid/owed as we get closer to the day so there’s no vagueness or hidden costs as we go forward. I will be attending my rehearsal, wedding, brunch and having as much fun as the guests because I won’t be worried about a thing. At the end of the day – her fee is going to work out to less than 10 dollars an hour – not to mention calling all vendors, etc. etc. etc. For any woman with a job and wants to still have a life while she plans a wedding, they are worth it!” written by ‘endlessocean’ on The Knot

It’s never too early in the wedding planning process to start talking about your guest list. Before you announce that you’re having 250 people and start verbally inviting people, it’s a good idea to sit down with your fiancé and answer the following questions.

  • What is your dream wedding? It could be a petite gathering or a large bash.
  • Who comes to mind when you think of getting married? These are the people that make your day particularly special.
  • Who is involved in paying for the wedding? This will help to decide which guests they would like to have there as well.
  • What can you afford? This is the ultimate question- setting up a budget will help identify what type of event fits best for you.

guestlist

Once you’ve got these preliminary questions out of the way, and decided where you’re having both the ceremony and reception, you’ll know about how many guests you want to invite. The next step is deciding how many invitations to give to each of your parents. Traditionally, the invitations are split evenly between the two families. However, if the bride and groom share the same group of friends, you may choose to give each of your parents a third of the invitations, reserving a third for yourselves.

You and your fiancé should sit down and start naming the names (and gathering the addresses!) that will make up your portion of the guest list. Make it fun with wine and cheese!

It ultimately comes down to personal choice. But there are a few things to consider; how many bridesmaids do you want, what will your budget stretch to, who is going to be on hand for dress fittings and advice, who is your closest confidant and how well will the girls get along.

Choose wisely and ask yourself who couldn’t you do without on the biggest day of your life – and there will be your answer. It’s also important not to feel dictated to by tradition or what other people think. If you only want one bridesmaid but have two very special friends both worthy of the maid-of-honor title, then have two maid-of-honors and one bridesmaid – it’s entirely up to you. And if you’re not particularly close to your future husband’s three sisters, ask them politely if there’s another role within the wedding they’d be happy to takeover, such as handling the guest book, ushering, or handing out programs.

BridalParty

If you’re looking for a great caterer service, Villa Russo might just have what you need to make of your party a moment you’ll never forget.

This is your special day and should be comfortable along with exciting and joyous, so enjoy it with the right entourage!

Keep your wedding on track with an organized binder filled with worksheets, contact lists, calendar appointments or any inspiration that you find along the way. You’ll feel less stressed by having all of your wedding information at your fingertips, ready for you to access at a moment’s notice. Here’s how to create the wedding binder that’s fit for you:

 

  1. Purchase a sturdy, three-ring binder with inner pockets and at least a two-inch spine, depending on your wedding size and scope.
  2. Place dividers inside the binder and type tabs or labels to keep each section organized. Use sections to match specific planning categories, such as guest lists, invitations, wedding dress, vendors and catering. Include a business card sleeve page in the vendor section to hold business cards. Place several clear, zippered pouch pages in the back of the binder to house invitation samples, receipts, contracts, pens and color swatches.
  3. Place extra pens and a calculator in the zipper pouches of the binder and collect magazine articles, images etc in another zippered pouch to reference later. (Remember to snap photos with your phone/camera when  you see something inspirational that you’d like to reference later)
  4. Keep a checklist as the first page of the binder as a reminder of what you’ve achieved and what you still need to complete.      wedding-planning-binder
  5. Add additional inserts to the binder under each tab based on your wedding needs. Include the checklists, blank pages for notes and a calendar for you to fill in important dates and deadlines. Use a hole punch on documents such as guest lists, vendor brochures, honeymoon travel paperwork and other various information to include in the binder.
  6. Fill in the wedding planning calendar with important dates. Mark dates and times for vendor appointments, wedding gown fittings, hair and makeup appointments, payment dates, bridal parties and honeymoon travel dates. Include timelines and reminder notes to yourself to ensure you do not forget important details, such as when to apply for your marriage license or book your honeymoon tickets.
  7. Keep the binder with you at all times — bring it in the car, when away from home — just in case you get a call, meet a potential vendor or need to check a date. Carry a small notebook in your purse, when in the stores, to jot down any information you want to remember to include in your wedding binder.

In this industry I come across some amazing talent and feel so strongly about showcasing my peers work. Videography is often times one of those services that couples choose to leave out of their budget because they don’t realize what a difference it is to have photos vs. film. I can’t say enough great things about Vantage Point Productions and their passion for creating heart-warming videos that capture the wedding day from getting ready before the ceremony to the bride and grooms departure at the end of the night. They are able to capture a play-by-play of a very special day for my clients and I am so grateful that I get to work with this incredible talent on a regular basis.

I regret not hiring a professional videographer. There were so many funny, sentimental, thoughtful, surprising, best-day-of-our-life moments that I wish were captured on video.”
