Well I am proud to Announce my New Couple.....Shayna and Dustin, they are getting married in June! I have been good friends to Shayna for about 10 yrs now. I knew she was close to getting engaged because she would ask me questions about my website and someother wedding questions. In January she approached me and let me know she was going to be getting married and needed my help. Of course I am going to help it's what I do! We visited venues (6) to be exact before finding THE ONE! The wedding is going to be held in Pasadena at Castle Green, it is a historical location. January has been a busy month of getting alot of the planning done. We were able to book the venue, book the photographer, schedule the meeting with the florist, the invitations are being made, the DJ is a friend so he is on board, ordered THE DRESS! Needless to say there has been alot going on plus I help another florist at his store a couple days a week. I love weddings and all the details that come along with them, I am glad I am able to be there for friends and make sure their day turns out just as they expect it to!

Melanie & Alex
Amber & Mauricio
Along with the Santa Barbara wedding I have 2 day of coming up. One in March the other the beginning of June. The funny thing about these two weddings is how they are kind of related to each other. The first one that is in March, I was referred to by the florist I worked with on the Santa Barbara wedding. So we had just been emailing wach other until last month when we met in person so I could get some of the wedding onfo from her and go over a few details. Well she is on Facebook, have I mentioned how much exposure I get from facebook! Anyway so I sent her a friend request so that she also could see my business page I have on there as well. As I was looking over her page I notice we went ot hte same high school and she graduated 3 yrs. after I was there. Such a small world! I am excited about this wedding because she is also having her reception at one of my favorite restaurants in Glendale that I used to frequent when I lived there, and now I get to go back.
The other wedding that is the beginning of June, I went to school with the groom. His sister and I are facebook friends, another connection. Ellie saw what I did for my business and she referred me to Amber and Mauricio. I just met with them a couple of weeks ago and can I mention how funny it is to be doing a wedding of someone you have not seen in 15 years let alone went to high school with. It's so funny, but I am glad that I am able to make their day go smoothly and they get to enjoy and savor all the festivities! I know the similarities are not real close but close enough that I thought it was worth mentioning!
It's been awhile since i've posted anything and so I thought I should catch you up on what i've been doing. I did a wedding with a florist vender of mine in Santa Barbara on Saturday January 2. You would think a wedding in January would be freezing cold, but this is California and well anything weather wise is possible. The weather had to be at least 75 if not 80 that day, it was gorgeous outside and a perfect day for a wedding. This wedding was a bit different because I was hired by the florist to do the coordinating. The florist was related to the groom getting married and they hired her to take care of the wedding, so in turn she hired me to help her out on the day of. I have never done something like this where I had not known the bride and groom, so it was a bit different for me but I welcome the challenge. I was able to email the bride and get the information I needed in order to put together the timeline of the days events. Everything went extremely smoothly and I was able to meet some new vendors like Sun-Dance Photography that took the pictures here and I thank Blendie for sharing them with me.
