It has been a while since I last sat down and pondered what to write on this blog. It took me long enough but I’ve decided to use this website to share with everyone my thoughts and just every day musings. So here we go.

This weekend was a big one for me. It was my first event where I was the event planner. I have longed to be an event and wedding planner since before I graduated college in 2010. Of course, it’s not easy to just expect someone to hire you as I learned quickly upon graduating. In fact, it is extremely difficult to get started. My first break happened only because I shared my wishes and desires with a mom who’s kids I tutored. 2 years later, I gained not only a second family but an opportunity to work with one of the kindest and driven mom-extraordinaire. I am truly blessed to be able to be a part of Hunter’s Bar Mitzvah and to be able to see the night unfold into a magical Hollywood evening. Unfortunately, my phone does not do justice so I will post pictures as soon as I can.

Cheers to the first of hopefully many 🙂 may I one day, someday become an event and wedding planner.

2013

There will be new changes in 2013. For starters, I am creating a 101 in 1001 list. This idea was created by Design Darling. Please visit her website to get an idea of what this list entails. Her list is very inspiring and I think that with goals in mind, I can better focus on completing what needs to be done.

Cheers to the new year and my list will hopefully be up shortly!

I saw this on Preston Bailey today and had to share! I love the gold detailing and sweetheart neckline. How can anyone resist? Bonus: you can shorten it and wear it again 😉

Sorry for the long hiatus! With the passing of Thanksgiving and the holiday season coming up, it’s been a bit hectic! I wanted to post some pictures of my sister’s wedding as a prequel to what will come once we are done with the edits. I hope you enjoy the ones we have so far!

Happy Friday! I hope you are all prepared for the upcoming holiday! I just wanted to share Monique Lhuillier’s lovely Spring 2013 Bridal Collection since it is absolutely exquisite. My sister was wedded in a Monique Lhuillier earlier this year and I hope to someday be lucky enough to walk down in one as well. This year’s collection zooms in on details: lace, tulle, ruffles, glitter and bead work, all of which are things I love. I have my eye on a few 😉 but narrowing it down it one is always a toughie! Here are some of my favorites. Sorry, I could not choose one!

For the girl who keeps every handwritten letter, card, and note written to her, this collection is the perfect sentiment to keep forever.

utterly engaged 24th issue

{Utterly Engaged, Issue #024}

Sometimes you see something that is absolutely wonderful that causes you to do a double take. That is what this table setting did for me. While digitally flipping through the pages of Utterly Engaged’s 24th issue, I found myself going back to this picture immediately. It captures the essence of romantic glamour. The rose colored glitter table cover goes perfectly with the gold chairs and pink, peach, and white roses. Enjoy!

Election Day is always super exciting. It is nice to see passionate people rallying together. While it brings out disagreements, it also brings out the drive that defines the American people. We all have different views and opinions and come from different economic and social backgrounds. To see that expressed freely as a country just makes me proud to call myself an American. Hope all of you were able to make it to a voting booth today! To piggyback on the Election Day theme, I thought I would feature red, white, and blue wedding ideas.

While perusing the latest blogs, I came across Enchanted Ateliér, a dreamy bridal accessories collection. I knew I just had to feature it since it brings goosebumps to my skin. It is the perfect babble for a fairytale wedding.

As many of you may or may not know, I aspire to be a wedding and special events designer and planner. I hope to create near perfect moments for people on their special day. Having just attended my own sister’s wedding two months prior solidified my career desires. While we were lucky to not experience any unforeseen delays, I must say that having a hard copy itinerary on hand (with important numbers ranging from groomsmen to florist) and a long lasting cellphone battery really did prevent all hiccups. We were also lucky to have such a patient and calm bride. However, just to resolve some of those wedding what ifs scenarios, I have put together a list of things I would definitely bring in case of emergency. Of course, there are a million things I left out so please be sure to add your own final touches to the bag. After all, we would not want to panic during that moment 😉
