3/7/15 – Gracie and River – Redding Wedding Venue


IMG_0432Congratulations to Gracie and River!!!  From the moment that I met these two and heard their ideas on what they wanted, I knew that the TBS Ranch was their perfect venue!  The barn provided the perfect backdrop for their Medieval theme, and Gwen Edwardson did an amazing job making my barn look Medieval!  I had a few people visit the ranch and view the set up and they all LOVED it.  It was different, and reflected Gracie and River perfectly.  The spectacular weather stuck around for this amazing day.  The vibe was just so perfect and it is so evident that Gracie and River have their priorities in order.  They ADORE each other, and have such a support group of friends and family.  It is quite evident that they have a very bright future in front of them, and of course we wish them the very very best!!!

I was very busy getting back into the groove of wedding season.  The bad news is that I didn’t get many pictures.  The good news is that Brent and Rachael Van Auken photographed this event and I will get some sure to be AMAZING photos from them.  They are so very talented and I can’t wait to see the photos.  I will post to share them as soon as I get them.  Thanks to Brent and Rachael in advance!


This cake sets the Medieval theme so well. It is just so River and Gracie! Amazing (=

2/8/15 – Bridal Guide Bridal Show 2015


IMG_0118As always, had a TOTAL BLAST at the Bridal Guide Bridal Show held at the Simpson College Event Center on Sunday, February 8, 2015.  Any of you that know me, know that I love to talk, especially about weddings, so this is my day!  LOVED chatting with me existing brides, as well as meeting a lot of my future brides.  The reason I am so late posting this blog is because I have been totally slammed with appointments after the show.  THANK YOU to all of you that stopped and chatted with me.  I enjoyed each and every one of you!

I also have to thank Teri Benson from Affairs for doing my booth.  She has done my booth for me for 10 years!  I am spoiled.  She makes it so easy for me.  AND, it always looks amazing!!!

11/15/14 – Bethany and Dan – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Bethany and Dan!!!!  Oh my goodness I had fun knowing these two!  They are just so sweet. It is so evident that Dan adores Bethany because his smile is beaming every time he looks at her.  She was such a beautiful bride.  Classic beauty with a sweetness that you cannot ignore.

I was going to mention on my last blog that if it didn’t rain weekend of 11/15, that ALL of the TBS Ranch weddings in 2014 were able to be outdoor events.  I didn’t mention it then because I didn’t want to jinx it.  Rain was predicted pretty much all week, but it turned out to be a stunning fall day!  Perfect for the fall vibe that Bethany wanted.  It was very sunny, and the temperature was pleasant, not too cold.  It is a good thing that the wedding was on Saturday, and Sunday.  It was COLD and windy on Sunday!  This was such a great wedding to conclude the season 2014 season!!!  Okay for it to rain now (=

LOVELY couple…we wish them the very very very best!!!!

11/1/14-Melanie and Kevin – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Melanie and Kevin!  The fall vibe of this amazing day was breathtaking!!!  It was warm, inviting, and cozy in a chic romantic way.  Just beyond words to explain the vibe of this wedding.  It was supposed to rain…NOT!!!  It POURED at the rehearsal on Friday.  We were planning on set up on the barn, but when I woke up Saturday am to pillow like white clouds and sun, I knew that they would be able to have their outdoor ceremony.  When I checked the weather, it said that the storm had moved south.  Go figure!  Connections with Mother Nature, right?  In any case, it rained on the LA brides, but not our Palo Cedro bride!  The amazing perfect fall weather just added to the magic of this day.

Gwen Edwardson coordinated, and as always, did a wonderful job of bringing Melanie’s dream to reality.  Plus she makes my job easier!  I know that is so selfish, but so true (=

We wish Melanie and Kevin the very very very best!!!!!

10/25/14 – Amanda and Jason – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Amanda and Jason!!!!  When I first met with Amanda and Jason, I was so excited to see Amanda as a bride.  She has such an elegant appeal with her dark hair and amazing skin.  I knew that she was going to be a stunning bride, and she certainly did not disappoint!  Jason cleaned up pretty nicely as well (=

Since Amanda and Jason are from the Susanville area, we only met a few times and worked mostly through e-mail.  Amanda wanted a casual vibe for her day, and the only thing that was very important to her is that she have the ceremony outdoors.  When we met at the rehearsal the day before, the weather was stunning, but they were predicting rain.  We went over rain set up in the barn just in case; and although Amanda is SUPER easy going, you could sense just a bit of disappointment that she might have to have the ceremony indoors.  When the wind on Friday night blew over our fence at the house, and the rain was just pelting on the windows, I honestly did not think that there was any way for an outdoor wedding.  Well, Amanda must have some connections!  Although it was very windy, the weather stayed pretty much dry all day.  Amanda got her outdoor ceremony, and it was so picturesque and romantic with the wind and the clouds rolling in from the distance.  You could hear the thunder during the ceremony which was really fun!  It stayed dry throughout the ceremony, all of the guests got inside, and then it let go!!!  If rain is good luck on your wedding, Amanda and Jason are going to win the lottery of life!!!  It was like it was holding back all day just so Amanda and Jason could have their ceremony.  The timing of the storm was incredible.  Like I said, they must have connections!

I wish that I could have taken more photos of this beautiful wedding, but I was too busy sweeping leaves and picking up branches!  The photographer promised that they would send some of their photos.  I will start them once I receive them.

The vibe of this day was AMAZING!  Amanda and Jason are such a lovely couple and we wish them the very very best!!!!!

10/18/14 – Tasha and Justin – Redding Wedding Venue


Congratulations to Tasha and Justin!  This season has been chock full of great people. Tasha Justin, friends and family certainly add to that list.  Just lovely people, all of them.  Tasha and Justin could not have asked for a more PERFECT fall day to celebrate their wedding.  The vibe was very classy and elegant with a rustic twist.  Very magical indeed!

We wish them the very best!!!!

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!!!!
