Real Wedding: Winnie and Nathan

During our first conversations with Winnie she referenced her Napa Valley wedding having “drama”. She wanted a dramatic kick off to the wedding. Meaning the ceremony space would be the wow factor.  After kicking around a few ideas we decided to go with a white 14 foot tall canopy from Blue Print that definitely provided “drama” amongst the background at Meadowood. From there, things began to take shape with Fleur de France helping guide the floral direction. The wedding ceremony took place on the Vintner’s Lawn surrounded by trees. The food and wine was very important so we created a menu that anyone would be impressed by. The menu included lobster and more than one course of foie gras, with wines to pair of course. After dining al fresco, guests headed inside for a night of dancing. On the way they all stopped by the glamorous photo booth set up by Giggle and Riot. It even included a step and repeat which continued the dramatic theme into the late hours of the night!

Winnie and Nathan were such a kind and fun couple. We could tell from our first meeting with them that they were so excited to get married and couldn’t wait to throw an amazing party for their friends and family. Even though it was rare to catch either of them at a bad moment, we swear a smile never left either of their faces on their wedding day.

Real Wedding: Ashley and Michael

Ashley and Michael’s Maui destination wedding was one of a kind.  Having roots in Hawaii, Ashley knew this was the place she wanted to get married and Micheal agreed. It was important to Ashley and Michael to find a private venue so their closest family and friends could share in this special day. Once they laid eyes on Sugarman Estate in Wailea, Hi they new it was the perfect spot.

Ashley made custom bridesmaid dresses for all her girls. While Micheal and his groomsmen wore light greyish blue suits to compliment the overall design. Ashley and Micheal didn’t want to block the gorgeous view of the ocean so Wildheart Florals created a semi circle floral piece that came a few feet off the ground.

Our favorite touch to the wedding was featuring Kimo Sabe Mezcal which our girl boss bride, Ashley founded! We had Garnish to whip up some amazing local craft cocktails to really wow their guests. The whole day was captured perfectly by Courtney Lindberg Photography.

411 on Your Wedding Room Block

Are your wedding room blocks stressing you out? We are here to share some of the best wedding room block tips and advice!

Planning your wedding can and should be one of the most exciting things in your life, but we know that the fun can get mired down in details, schedules and negotiations. One of the most necessary yet frustrating tasks can be securing a fantastic hotel room block. This is where a travel professional adds real value and can solve YOUR ROOM BLOCK DEBACLE. We have asked our friends at Ever After Honeymoons to shed some light on the subject.

IS A ROOM BLOCK NECESSARY?

It sure is, if you want your guests to have the best experience as possible at your wedding! They are assured a great room at the best price. It keeps all your guests close together and creates a feeling of intimacy. By having everyone in one hotel, you can offer special amenities and cut down on complex logistics. Additionally, it saves them the hassle of researching hotels.

NOW THAT YOU’RE CONVINCED THAT YOU NEED A ROOM BLOCK, WHAT’S NEXT?

Choosing the location: it all depends on your unique needs and vision. Whether it’s a simple room block, an entire property buy-out or securing specialty villas, EAH can arrange all your needs at destinations around the globe.

Getting the best deal: it’s easy to get confused and overwhelmed by all the contract lingo…attrition rates, shrinkage clauses, cut-off dates and cancellation policies. A travel professional can handle all price negotiations, contracts and payment details to make sure you receive the best rates and best arrangements.

Real Wedding: Lauren and Tom featured on 100 Layer Cake

Lauren and Tom’s Sedona Southwest Themed Destination wedding was one for the books! When they first started planning their wedding, they were looking in New York and California where Lauren grew up. After visiting Sedona one weekend where her parents now live, they decided this was the spot!  Seven Canyons Sedona was the place where they were going to host their southwest destination wedding with antlers and all!

We absolutely loved all the southwest details to include the aztec linens from La Tavola. The touches of succulents and antlers in the greenery runners were perfect.  We wanted to incorporate person touches as well. Lauren road horses during her childhood so we decided to include the horseshoe monogram in the paper goods. Additionally we used real horseshoes for escort cards.

LVL Academy: Fall Wedding Planner Workshop Day 2

We kicked off Day 2 of the wedding planner workshop with lessons learned. It all started back at our first workshop when we realized the best advice we’ve ever received came from others being open about sharing their mistakes. Now it has become a signature part of the workshops. We come with an open heart and let our guards down. This helps to create a space for great and authentic conversations.

Some other highlights include LVL Academy instructor, Heather, sharing her ultra prepared emergency kit. Carizza with 24 Carrots showing the students how to set a proper table setting and then take an Instagram-worthy photo of the beautiful tablescape. Janelle with Lavenders Flowers shared her inappropriate feelings about flowers and taught attendees how to make a boutonniere on the fly!

The day ends with a beautiful dinner thank you dinner and all the warm and fuzzies one could ask for. The goal at the end of the two-day wedding planner workshop is for the students to feel a part of the Planner Life Community and walk away with tangible tools. Knowing that whatever next step they are taking they have support, resources, and guidance to help them on their journey to becoming a successful wedding planner!
