I use to think a wedding was a simple affair, boy and girl meet, they fall in love, he buys a ring, she buys a dress, they say “I do”. I was wrong. That’s getting married. A wedding is an entirely different proposition.

When I first met with Al & Fallon they described their perfect wedding to me and that included an evening ceremony. I about died because an evening ceremony has been on my bucket list. Fallon discussed her vision for the decor with me and how she wanted to transform a ballroom into an intimate garden setting. I couldn't wait to start working with them and coordinating the perfect day. Fallon & Al are foodies & LIVE for their wine! They own a restaurant so food was very important to them both. We had the luxury of booking the amazing Puff-N-Stuff...Read more
You know what I love about my brides? Each one is completely different from the next. Some brides want garden weddings, some want vintage, beach or ballroom weddings. Some want low key and others want a PARTY!!! Some want intimate and some want to invite everyone they have ever known. As a planner it is my job to pull together the perfect wedding that fits each brides personality. So when Amanda and David contacted me and told me they wanted a brewery wedding I jumped 10 feet high!!!! Never having done a brewery wedding before I could not have been...Read more

What do you get when two native Floridians get engaged and plan a wedding....well you get an Old Florida Theme of course. Being a native Floridian myself I immediately understood Sarah and Jimmy's vision. They wanted a natural and elegant wedding that touched lightly on their love for the woods and water. Sarah focused on incorporating Florida greenery such as palm and magnolia and Florida fruits into many of the details. One of my favorite details was the clementine escort table. The clementines we set in a bed of box wood greenery and cut to hold a beautiful escort card...Read more
Purple and gold, a beautiful day, throw in some farm tables and chandeliers and TA-DA.......GLAMOROUS!!!! I'm not going to lie....the decor at Isis and Aaron's wedding is going down as one of my FAVES. The ceremony took place outside at the gazebo overlooking the water at the Davis Island Garden Club in Tampa. Isis and Aaron had an array of fabulous food stations outside while guest sat at farm tables underneath lighting that strung from tree to tree and let's not forget the stunning head table that was blinged out with chandeliers. Cocktail hour on the patio and late night...Read more
Formal and elegant was the theme for Lisa and Ryan's wedding. Golds mixed with silver and aubergine would complete the color scheme. Lisa and Ryan wanted a traditional church ceremony and decided on a beautiful beach venue for the reception. Lisa and I spent a year planning her wedding extravaganza and it was perfect!!! The DJ rocked the dance floor, the guest danced all night and most importantly Lisa and Ryan were smiles all day long!!!!! Nothing makes me happier than smiling brides!!!!!!!! Enjoy the pictures..........
