  • Looking back to help you plan ahead ~ Part 2

    I’m glad I…chose my aesthetic.

    Growing up, I spent my weekends with my mom going around the state visiting antique stores and searching for collectibles. I’ve always loved the old, and the story behind things. My aesthetic has always been vintage, so of course I chose vintage wedding décor. Yes, this wedding theme is overdone. No, it didn’t keep me from choosing what I loved for my own wedding. If you work with a stylist for your big day, be sure that you share with them your history and personality. A great stylist will be able to bring a fresh eye and perspective to any aesthetic you choose.

  • A curious questionnaire with our Madame la Presidente ~

     With a background including floral design, catering and event management, Whitney has a keen understanding for event production.  Add that to her love of pushing the fashion boundaries, and an imaginative spirit, she is a powerful leader that has the makings of the perfect President.  When she's not amazing us with her talent, she enjoys her begal cat Zoe and is actively involved with various charitable organizations.


    Let's find out more about our Madame la Présidente with this week's questionnaire and make sure to see last's post featuring our Creative Queen...
     

     

    What is the first thing you do as President?  

    Start my day with a Triple Venti Skinny Vanilla No Foam Latte…and always think 5 steps ahead!

    How does your process unfold?

    It’s more of a rolling effect than a folding effect. Like a snowball, you just keep adding on more and by the time you hit the target, the excess fluff has been removed. I think great events are created out of a process of dreaming and editing, dreaming and editing.

    Where do you draw inspiration from?

    Absolutely everything! I’m very visual, so just being in a state of awareness helps me draw inspiration from nature and my surroundings. I’m a picture junkie; pictures always resonate with my creative side. My husband thinks I’m crazy when I look at Instagram because I can process photos as fast as my fingers can scroll!

    What is your favorite aspect of creating?

    I love using the logical side of my brain along with the creative side. Building projects are always fun because they use both parts!

    How would you describe your perfect event?

    Non-existent!

    If you could pick one word to describe one of your events, what would it be?

    Magical…seriously, when you have that moment you step back and say “wow, is this real!”

    What are your strengths:

    According to my team, I can “Divide and Conquer” like no one else…or at least I can use that phrase like no one else!

    What are you weaknesses:

    Champagne, Award Show Red Carpets & Shopping.

    Pet Peeves:

    It kills me when my crew uses too many backdrop clips! (Probably can be summed up that my pet peeve is wasting time!)

    Dream Vacation:

    I’m such a beach-babe, without a doubt it would be to SCUBA in the Great Barrier Reef!

    Favorite Color:

    I have different favs for different areas of my life, and they are constantly changing! For events right now I’m digging an all-white look (so chic!)…for my house, I’m obsessed with shades of blue almost to a teal…for my wardrobe, it’s always black (that never changes!).

    Favorite Quote:

    “If it is to be, it is up to me!” -William H. Johnsen

    What is one habit you have:

    I bite my cheeks when I’m thinking. Don’t ask me why.

     

  • Wedding Tip of the Week ~ Establishing a Guest Count

      

    Tip – Establish your guest count first.

    When the engagement happens and the planning begins, brides can often skip the important step of establishing their guest count and go right into other planning details. Your guest count determines a lot – like your venue, your menu, and overall cost. Don’t get stuck in a situation where you book a beautiful venue that seats 100, and then have 250 people RSVP! Or a situation where you end up spending much more than you anticipated, all because of food and beverage cost per person.

    Try this trick to tackle the daunting task of narrowing down your list. Ask your fiancé and both sets of your parents to sit down individually and write every person’s name they would want to invite down on a piece of paper. You do the same. Establish a deadline and then meet to compare your lists for duplicates and discuss everyone’s expectations. Create lists of “definitely” and “maybe.” Walk away from the list when it feels like you can’t narrow down anymore, and come back to it later with a fresh mind and perspective until you get it to where it needs to be.

    My rule of thumb – if you wouldn’t invite someone to dinner and pay for their meal, you shouldn’t invite them to you wedding. Some bride’s lists will be in the 100s and others in the 300s (or more), and that’s okay! Once you establish your guest count, everything else can begin falling into place.

    An early fall day is the perfect way to enjoy this hump day.  Bring on the boots, sweaters, and pumpkin flavored everything.  Who's ready for fall?
