What do wedding planners do in their spare time?








We talk about weddings over great food of course!  As some of you might know, I am one of the founding members of iWED— International network of Wedding and Event Designers.  Last month, a few members decided to get together at the Amelia Island Ritz Carlton for dinner. 

Let it be known, we had a fabulous time! And, FYI, the creme brulee is to die for!  I was ground fighting almost every day to work it off, but it was sooooooo worth it!  At any rate, you have (L to R) Shayna Box from Posh Celebrations,  Mattie Johnson from Look No Further Events, Scarlett Williams from Captivating Studios and yours truly at the end.

It was a fabulous night of great food, greater conversation and the greatest of friends!  They almost had to put us out! Our reservations were at 7:30, and we didn’t leave until 11:30. WOW! Who knew?  We will host another “Soiree” (that’s what we call our get togethers. Being wedding professionals, you know it had to be something uber-fabulous) on St. Simons Island next February.  We’ll do it bigger and better this time– a three day trip of spa treatments, good food, great conversation and company…and more creme brulee.

Bring on the heavy bag and the ground fighting!

Get Captivated!

Captivating Studios Wedding Video Jacksonville, FLIt’s no secret, I love my vendors.  They help pull together a perfect day for you, the client! We all work together as a team to make your dream a reality. 

However, every once in a while, someone’s work will knock me off of my feet.  Scarlett Williams, of Captivating Studios has a gift of capturing the personality and love of the couple. Just by watching a few moments of their video, you feel like you know them, and are in awe of their love.  It takes tremendous talent to capture these moments in an unobtrusive, creative and respectful way. 

Most recently, Scarlett did a bridal glamour/remembrance video for a bride who lost her father and brother-in-law in a plane accident before her wedding (read more). Scarlett, as only she can, created a beautiful tribute on the bride’s wedding day that brought tears to my eyes. 

To see more of Scarlett’s beautiful and artistic work, check out more of her work.  I love what she does and think you will too!
