Okay my dears....my new full time job is staying up to date on the current NY COVID regulations regarding weddings so here is where we are at per the NYS Liquor Authority, Empire State Development and the NYS Department of Health. These are not suggestions...they are rules and we are mandated to follow them all.
1.) Maximum number of guests is 50. This is indoor, outdoor, venue, private residence, astral plain...doesn't matter.
2.) Ceremony: Inside a church/mosqu...Read Full Post »

Oh my friends...I mean...this.
So we are literally updating everything every day...sometimes twice a day. The reschedule is real and though none of us want this to be a reality, at this point there is no denying it.
Understandably, many of you are absolutely devistated. How could you not be?? To date I have rescheduled 16 weddings, dozens of smaller social events and innumerable corporate gath...Read Full Post »

Oh my word guys...I cannot believe we are finally on the other side of Alex and Dustin's wed-stravaganza! 4 days, thousands of miles traveled, hundreds of planning hours and it has come and gone in the blink of an eye.
If you told me a year and a half ago that I would be planning a 4 day wedding at a retreat center deep in the Redwoods of California this...I would have laughed in your face. I was originally brought on to help with coordinating a 2 day event, in New Hampshire...Read Full Post »

What do you get when you combine 2 cultures, 2 religions, 2 Disney fans, 2 culinary backgrounds, 2 Harry Potter aficianados, a suit of armor made of tin foil, crazy musical talent and possibly the coolest bridal party of all time? Cathy & Kristin's big day!
I have to tell you their weekend was really challenging. We were dealing with an extremely disorganized and uncooperative venue who frankly failed on all counts t...Read Full Post »

When a couple loves Star Wars as much as I do...you know the wedding is going to be epic! Some wonderful details from this unique and soulful celebration that I really loved are the "smudging ceremony" performed by their maid of honor, a personalized slide show and story book from the bride to the groom and the completely non-traditional, but 100% Shana dress!

OOOOKKKAAAYYYY folks...let's chat about making decisions.
I get it. You start by Googling, which leads to Wedding Wire, which leads to The Knot, which leads to you realizing it's 3:00 a.m. and you have clearly gone off the rails. There are about a bazillion wedding professionals out there Then, you go to a bridal show and your brain almost explodes because you get information from another 10 million people. You can't remember who was who,...Read Full Post »

I see it all the time...a couple decides to do a tent wedding in an open field or a barn. Then they hire a catering company and pick a package without bringing the caterer to the venue or property first. After a while, a site visit happens and the reality sets in...you will now need $5,000 in rental equipment, tents and generators to accomplish the menu you have selected and accomodate all of the vendors you have hired. Or, worse...the caterer tells you that it is simp...Read Full Post »
