September 2009



I assisted my long-time assistant Jennifer for Tara and Matt’s wedding.
Working with Arthur’s Catering, Lee James Florals, Soundwave Entertainment, Cory Callahan Photography, Jeremy Tomlinson, cake by Party Flavors, and I can’t forget to mention VIP Transportation. It was a great day at the Lake Mary Event Center. Just a brief shower in the afternoon before the wedding, Tara’s theme incorporated earthtones and deep burgundy. See for yourself.


My husband got to go along on a recent FAM (Familiarization Trip) to NH Hotels Cancun Riviera – a new resort and excellent site for a destination wedding. Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico is clean, safe, and a delightful site for vacationing or honeymoons. In fact, one part of the property is family-focused, and the other side of the property is “adults only.” When you’re looking for a destination wedding, it’s important to work with someone who has been to the resort, met with the wedding coordinator, and familiar with the legal requirements, logistics, and capabilities of the destination site. Having spent a few days learning about imports, area transportation and sites, resort amenities and activities, room inspections and sampling cuisine, I can confidently recommend this property and their wedding coordinator, Sandy Casillas. What did I like best? It would probably have to be the hot tub on the balcony where you could relax privately with an incredible ocean view. Least favorite part – a lot of polished marble, beautiful but caution: slippery when wet.
