10/12/14 – Nicole and James – Bay Area Destination Wedding, Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Nicole and James!!!  This was the third of three weddings for me this weekend.  I was asked by many if I was tired.  Was I tried…yes…am I tired of weddings…NEVER!!!!  I am always in trouble for coming home from a wedding and watching “Say Yes to the Dress” or “Four Weddings”.  My husband can’t believe that I do wedding stuff in my free time, but I love it.  I think that it is because Shane and I eloped.  Kind of like people that were never allowed to have cats when they were children that end up with 200 cats???  I don’t know why, but I LOVE weddings.  Meeting people like Nicole and James is certainly one of the reasons that I love weddings.  These two, their friends and family are just all such amazing people.  They are from the East Bay Area like my Friday wedding, so we had 2 Bay Area destination weddings this weekend!  The are actually from the same city.  How ironic!

I can’t begin to put in words the vibe of this wedding, but I will try.  Amazing, beautiful, relaxed, and chic with a rustic twist all come to mind.  Nicole was LOVELY.  James is one of those organized easy going guys, and it is quite apparent that he is very smitten with Nicole.  They make such a great couple, and are sure to have an amazing future together.  Gwen Edwardson, from Gwen Edwardson Events coordinated this event.  As always, she did an outstanding job of putting it all together.  It makes life so much easier for brides when they have a coordinator, especially if they are planning long distance.  It can be done without one, but so much easier on all with one.  I hope that I was able to capture the magic of this day in some of my photos, and that all that read this post will enjoy them.

We wish Nicole and James the very very very best!!!!!!IMG_0987 IMG_0993 IMG_0995 IMG_0996 IMG_1001 IMG_1010 IMG_1019 IMG_1031 IMG_1041 IMG_1044 IMG_1066 IMG_1072 IMG_1081 IMG_1088 IMG_1092 IMG_1096 IMG_1098 IMG_1100 IMG_1114 IMG_1120 IMG_1129 IMG_1143 IMG_1152 IMG_1162 IMG_1165 IMG_1174 IMG_1200

10/11/14 – Hailey and Cory – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Hailey and Cory!!!  I loved these two from the moment I met them.  They have such an admiration for each other that radiates from both of them.  It really is just quite refreshing to be in their company.  They also have  such wonderful friends and family.  They wanted a relaxed fun day and that is what they got.  No fuss, but still very elegant and classy, and really a fun vibe.  They pulled it off magically!    I had 3 meetings with potential brides to show Hailey and Cory’s set up, and all 3 have booked!  That says a lot about the great vibe of this couple and their friends and family.

Hailey and Cory are truly a LOVELY couple, and we wish them the very best!!!!

10/10/14 – Rebekah and Israel – Bay Area Destination Wedding, Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Rebekah and Israel!!!!  Rebekah and Isreal are from the East Bay Area, which made this a total destination wedding!  I only met with Rebekah 2 times, and Isreal 1 time prior to their wedding day.  Rebekah and her crew of friends and family did an AMAZING job putting this event together long distance.  The relaxed elegance vibe reflected Rebekah so well.  She is such a sweet person.  She eludes sweetness!  I hope that my pictures can capture what an amazing vibe this event had.

We wish them the very very very best!!!!!

10/5/14 – Elle and Britt – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Elle and Britt!!!!  I was really hoping from the moment we met that Elle and Britt that they would choose the TBS Ranch as their wedding venue.  Elle’s vision of the elegant, yet rustic and relaxed day fits the TBS Ranch so well.  She did an amazing job planning this event long distance.  She is super organized and it all came together amazingly.  Elle and Britt’s wedding day was beyond words stunning, and I am so happy for them both.  I have to mention what a vision Elle was as a bride.  She is a beautiful girl in street clothes, but OMG!!! what a stunning bride.  She could have stepped right out of the pages of a bridal magazine.  Just super stunning!!!

It is evident that these two have their priorities in order, and that they care for each other very dearly.  We wish them the very very very best!!!!

10/4/14 – Ashley and Patrick – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Ashley and Patrick!  I have met these two on a few wedding planning occasions, and they are just so adorable together!  Their day was remarkably amazing.  It was a warmer fall day and just ever so lovely.  I LOVED the blue in the barn, and the girls bright dresses.  It had a classy chic vibe, just stunning.

I have to mention that Nuk Hamburg catered this event.  LOVE that woman!  and LOVE her food!  She does an amazing job with food and decor.  Very classy lady and I always enjoy seeing her.

Ashley and Patrick are such a truly lovely couple, and we wish them the very very very best!!!!!

9/28/14 – Holly and Simeon – Redding Wedding Venue


IMG_0421Congratulations to Holly and Simeon!!!  Their wedding was certainly a stunner.  Everyone commented on how beautiful it was.  It had a fall chic vibe, and the weather also had a fall feel which added to the magic.  The thing that I will always remember about Holly and Simeon’s obvious admiration for  Holly.  It is just so apparent that he totally LOVES this woman.  She certainly was a lovely bride, on the inside and out.  Simeon knows what a lucky guy he is, and that is probably why he adores so.  I had a great time knowing these two.

We wish them the very very  very best!!!!!

9/28/14-Autumn Dreams Bridal and Event Faire – Redding Wedding Venue

Had a total blast at the Autumn Dreams Bridal and Event Faire!!!!  Thanks to everyone that stopped by and chatted with me.  LOVED talking with all of you about your wedding plans.  Such a great show to attend to get lots of ideas and meet the vendors in person that will help you bring your dream day to reality!!!

As always, a thanks to Teri Benson from Affairs for making this show happen, and decorating my booth.  Sandy from Sandy’s Specialties also helped a lot…THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!  I honestly don’t think that I could have done it this year without their help.  I left the show barely in time for Holly and Simeon’s wedding at 5 pm.  That will be my next post as soon as I get a chance to edit photos (=

Made for a busy busy day but wouldn’t have missed it for the world!



9/22/14 – Melissa and Dustin – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Melissa and Dustin!!!  Melissa and Dustin followed the trend of very low maintenance on my behalf.  I only met Melissa once, when she booked.  She had a vision, and Stacy from Old Beginnings was the coordinator that worked with her long distance to put this lovely event together.  It was the perfect reflection of Melissa, who was a vision in her lovely dress.  LOVED the bright happy vibe of this event.  The pop of bright pink was so refreshing, and the day was beyond lovely to boot.  All and all such a great time and we are so happy for them.

We wish them the very very very best!!!!!

9/21/14 – Jaclynn and Roy – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Jaclynn and Roy!!!!  I don’t know where to start with the story of Jaclynn and Roy.  They were actually booked for September, 2013.  She wanted a Saturday, but they were all booked, so she settled on a Sunday.  On top of not having the day she wanted, some of the vendors that Jaclynn wanted to work with were booked. Instead of settling for less than her perfect day, she simply postponed it for a year!  So, I have known these LOVELY people for over 2 years.  They have become friends.  That said, you can imagine my heartbreak when I found out that they lost their home to the Boles Fire that destroyed their neighborhood in Weed.  They lost their home on Tuesday, September 16, and were married just 4 days later on September 20.  You would think that they would postpone the wedding again, but not these two.  Nothing was going to take their day away from them.  Instead of dwelling on the negative, they looked on the bright side of it all.  First, they are both OK, second, they saved the dress and the ring (more on that later), and third, rebuilding your home starting from scratch, replacing everything from underwear to furniture is a great way to start fresh!!!  I guess you could say that they proved that they can make it through the “for worse” part of their vows just a few days before they got to recite them.

Jaclynn got a frantic call from Roy telling  her that he had 15 minutes to get out of the house.  He wanted her input on what he should try and save.  Of course, Jaclynn answered “the dress and the ring”!!!!  Roy did not know where the dress was because he wasn’t supposed to see it, but with her coaching he found it.  AND…what a beautiful dress it was.  No wonder she wanted to save it.  It would have been so sad had it been lost.  Unfortunately, they did lose all of the other wedding accessories.  Food, alcohol, party favors, water, decorations, etc….  When the local community found out about this, they all pitched in and made sure that they were covered.  All of the wine was donated from Anselmo, beer  and water from Holiday Market, Gaia Hotel stepped up by comping their rooms and upgrading to a suite.  They had a vintage car  donated (in their cobalt blue color) to escort them.  The knot donated all of the party favors and even had all of the guests glasses engraved.  I know that there was a lot more but I am not sure of the details.  I want to thank EVERYONE involved for all they did to make this day amazing for Jaclynn and Roy.  Truly amazing community we live in, and they all stepped up to help a truly amazing couple.

I had calls from all sorts of news media wanted to air their story.  I know that it was aired locally, on Fox News Sacramento, a news station in Medford, and in San Francisco.  I have been to busy to try and locate the stories, but I can’t wait to see them.  I also have to mention that I was ever so grateful to Gwen Edwardson for organizing the donations and news media.  Since Gwen coordinated this event, I had to direct all calls her way so she would be in the loop.  As always, she did an amazing job.  Jaclynn;s dream day was just PERFECT.  Relaxed, classy, and beautiful, the PERFECT reflection of her.

We wish them the very very very best!!!!!!!
