How to Plan Your Wedding with less Stress

How to Plan Your Wedding with less Stress

A tool with you that will CHANGE your life when planning your wedding! As a bride once myself, I know how overwhelming the whole process can be. You don't know where to even begin...when do we start looking at venues? How do we determine a budget? Who should we invite? We could probably chat all day with a list of questions, right?

Engagement season is in full swing, and with the release of the Pantone color of the year, Greenery, plus the abundance of floral inspiration on the Internet and Pinterest, picking floral design for your wedding can be a bit overwhelming. Do you go traditional, keep up with the all greenery trend, stick to one color palette, or mix it up? There are so many options and we hope that these tips will help you navigate this floral design world a bit.

How to Make Your Own Wedding Snapchat Geofilter

Have you been to a wedding or event and seen those cool geofilters you can use on Snapchat? My Brides love when I share helpful resources to alleviate any stress with wedding planning. Last year, I hosted a party for the AW Bride Tribe (a community of newly engaged brides.) We made floral crowns, shopped and I showered them with gifts at Happily Ever Etched.

As a bride once myself, I know how overwhelming wedding planning can be. It’s like the second your boyfriend slips that shiny ring on your finger - you’re not only a fiance but now a wedding planner. You are still on cloud nine and can’t stop staring at your hand. By now your friends may be sick of your #ringselfie but who cares, you’re getting married, girl! It’s time to start picking a venue and settle on a date. But how how do you find the perfect venue? Where do you even begin? You probably have a pile of bridal magazines with colorful sticky note pages sitting on your bedroom floor. So now what?

As a luxury boutique wedding photographer, we give our clients not only an experience but serve them in the best ways possible. I’ve always loved the inspiration and articles in The Knot magazine, so it’s why each of my clients receive a copy of the California issue. They’ve included the best wedding vendors throughout California. So when I discovered they were offering a new (and free!) concierge service to help couples find the perfect venue based on their needs, I had to share!!

As an Orange County wedding photographer, I am so lucky to have had my images grace their pages - it’s a true honor!

I’m all about making my couples life easy...and this is a game changer. You take a quiz and get recommendations based on your needs and location. You’ll be introduced to your personal concierge who will be there for you. You can narrow down options, schedule a tour and book your wedding venue. Plus, The Knot insures weddings booked through this service for up to $27,000 at no cost to you. I haven’t used this service myself, but I would recommend anything The Knot launches to all my clients. Go here to go take the quiz!

2016 Year in Review

2016 Year in Review

As the year comes to an end, I can't help but reflect on how grateful I am for each and every couple and their families who welcome us happily to their wedding day. 

It's been a year of growth as I moved into an office in Tustin with a wedding coordinator (I'll share some images soon!) I couldn't be more thrilled and full of joy to have a "job" I love!

Why Our Wedding Was Amazing Without Pinterest

Why Our Wedding Was Amazing Without Pinterest

We were married almost five years ago and that was before pinterest. And you want to know a secret? It was still absolutely amazing without it. With the help of family, friends and some inspirational wedding blogs, we were able to plan our wedding on a budget that was perfectly unique to us.
