What’s your favorite or most popular trend in your field?
Lounge furniture! I simply love the use of lounge furniture at any event. It creates a chic ambiance, one that is inviting and allows guests to sit back and relax while enjoying
What FireFly package would you pick for your bachelor/ette party?
Since I am already married and had my bachelorette party 5 years ago, a girl can only dream right? The package I would choose for my bachelorette party would be #59 Scrumptiously Sexy, which includes a cooking lesson, manicure and martini…can you say yum!
Name 3 famous people you’d invite on your bachelor/ette party? Brittany, Paris and Lindsay…oh yes I am serious! Who else would get me on the cover of US magazine, front of the line V.I.P access to the hottest club in town and the chance to rub elbows with Hollywood elite all in one night? Now that’s one great party if you ask me and a night to remember!
What’s your most outrageous wedding memory? My most outrageous wedding memory involves lifting up a 180lb. groom from the floor and laying him in the back seat of a taxi because he was two sheets to the wind….yes folks, I mean drunk. While all his groomsmen gathered around him to laugh and take photos as he laid on the grass outside of the venue, I had to come in per the bride’s request and help her lift up her now husband and carry him into the back seat of a taxi so that they could go home because he had way too much fun and could barely stand up anymore to converse with his family and friends…..sad but outrageously true story!
Which wedding are you: Beach, Mountain, Forest, or Countryside??
I am totally Beach
Finish this sentence: If I could give one piece of wedding advice it would be…
Enjoy your wedding day, don’t sweat the small stuff and hire a good planner. A good wedding planner will not only save you time, stress and money but will ensure your day goes off without a hitch so that you can thoroughly enjoy it.
There’s a mysterious chunk missing from the wedding cake, the bride’s grandmother has gone missing, and the air conditioning has broken… what do you do??
Hmmm, you love putting us planners in a tough position huh? Well, this is what I would do; if the cake is iced with butter cream I would find a spatula ASAP to spread the butter cream and fill in the gap where the missing chunk of cake is. As for the bride’s grandmother I would have one of my assistants look for her, bathrooms, balconies, outdoor areas, cars, every nook and cranny would be checked in hopes that we could find her. Then there’s the issue of the air conditioning being broke, well believe it or not this has actually happened to us before and while there isn’t a whole lot you could do, you hope and pray the venue you’re in has windows and you proceed to open all windows to let outside air come in. If you happen to have some extra hand fans handy, which I often carry, begin to hand them out to guests but only if they ask or complain about it being too hot. Often times you will notice the above mishaps go unnoticed by the guests, so the best solution is to not panic, think, gather your thoughts and then find a solution.
