Thank you AGAIN and OVER and OVER again for not only letting us be apart of your day.. but for winning these great awards. I am truely honored and appreciative! Here is to another great year!!!!

One area of my job I enjoy a lot is the constant education into different cultures and all of their traditional wedding traditions. When I was sitting back and thinking about writing this blog I was amazed by how many different cultures we were touched with this year. We did 3 Nigerian Weddings, a Laos Wedding, 2 Korean Ceremonies, Incorporated Philippine Traditions into the wedding, and coordinated 3 Jewish Weddings.
Not only is it interesting to see how different cultures and religions incorporate items into the ceremony and wedding, it is fun to learn together on why these items are so special. The Vibrant colors that are worn by Nigerian women are so beautiful, the traditional dresses from the Korean ceremonies are so unique and of course the Jewish Hora dance is one of my favorite parts of a wedding. I will never forget the first time I saw it, the energy that is in that room is amazing and electrifying. Enjoy the collection of photos that showcase all of the Cultural Weddings we have done this year along with some of my favorite traditions!

You DO HAVE TO VOTE IN 6 CATEGORIES TO MAKE THIS VOTE COUNT and voting closes on March 1st!

Like Most girls out there.. I have long watched The Golden Globes…. and I care less about the winners and losers and more about the clothes. I would say for my personal prefereance I did not see a lot of dresses that were amazing.. but the one think that I noticed that stood out was the general styles… one shoulder dresses and ruffles. These 2 trends were everywhere and sometimes even combined. I have noticed that a lot in the wedding market as well! I think that a lot of these dresses could be doubled as a wedding dress in the right color as well!!

I can’t wait and see what the SAG Awards and the Oscars fashion brings!!!!


I got an email this morning telling me we are featured in Minnesota Meetings and Events Magazine! Of course, I was dying to see.. and now with their wonderful Digital Magazine I can virtually flip through the pages!
They had added some photos from Danielle and Leifs July 8th wedding… Thanks Minnesota Meetings and Events!
