His professional connections across the Bay Area and Wine Country allow him to provide you with the best our region has to offer.
As an event professional I live in a world of budgets, collateral production, advertising contracts, weather back-up plans, favors, rentals, corporate sales goals and most times a wide range of emotions, family pressures and friends with hurt feelings. Along with all that, I’m also exposed to the wildly intense romance that a bridal couple is about to celebrate, not only at the wedding but, in photographs, on film and sometimes on the glossy pages of a bridal magazine.
Through all of the design, planning and emotions – the most important part is my getting to know the bridal couple. After all, the event we are planning is a “wedding” the formal celebration of your relationship, the formal start to your journey of togetherness. If there is ONE thing that a couple should remember about this process it’s exactly this.
When I meet with a client for the first time – it almost always starts the same way “stiff”, most bridal couples always want to instantly “talk business”. No matter the location…cocktail lounge, restaurant, my offices or at the venue, I see the same “stiffness” – that overwhelming look on the couples face – where to start? I always take a nice deep breath and ask “tell me about the first time you met… Not the first date but, the first time you met.” Stories of fate, romance and humor are abundant and I can’t tell you how many laughs and tears have been shed in those first few minutes of these meetings. This is where the planning of a wedding really begins – at the beginning of the relationships story.
At this point can I begin to create a day worth of being called “your wedding” and I’m blessed that at this point couples let me inside their jokes and stories. A wedding is a few moments in time that celebrate your journey of togetherness. And together we will create the gateway to your journey. Your Wedding Day.
