As a mom of an only son, there is always a special place in my heart for the groom’s mom. I really liked Ana (and Victor) - they were so happy for their son, Ivan, and so wonderful to be around. I loved the mother/son dance and every interaction with Ivan’s family. Photo: @roberto_photo

I just want to give lots of love to Lottie, the wonderful and beautiful mom of Shelsy. She wanted everyone to be well fed and we were. Her mother of the bride ensemble was one of my favorites and she was glowing. Every photo of her radiates love and joy of the day. One of Cookie and my favorite mother of the brides EVER!!!

Happy Anniversary to Chelsea & Daniel, another modern groom I liked very much. Daniel and I planned this wedding for Chelsea and he wanted to be wonderful for her. The wedding was at the Couple's church and it was a fabulous day with which included an air show by the blue angels almost like it was put on just for them. The couple has moved to Chelsea's hometown in Kentucky and has a sweet little boy now.

I just got some photos from Joey + Greg’s wedding and I’ll be adding them to my website but just wanted to shout out to Greg. He was one of Cookie and my favorite grooms of all time. He was kind and wanted everything to be perfect for Joey. The kind of man I hope my son is like. I liked his best friend too. Photo: @simile_photography

I just can't believe what is happening to a grown woman.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cookie used to LOVE Britney, and while I wasn't the biggest fan, of course, I grew to like her. And of course, I am against punishing women and controlling their bodies. #FreeBritney ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She deserves it.

The couple who donated this food were my clients. We had to cancel their wedding two weeks before the event. We had so many plans! The bride was going to do a duet with her dad, the groom was going to do a cake mapping (we did a dry run that was fantastic). Cookie and I were so excited for this event because when you have an amazing couple like this you cannot help but get emotionally invested.

Yet, the plans couldn't happen. Then this wonderful couple decides, "ok let's turn this disappointment into something good", and decided to donate their catering deposit to feed hungry families, all anonymously. Cookie and I know who they are and our hearts are full. Thank you M & J for being caring, amazing and generous!!! We will always think you with joy in our hearts.

The Inauguration was amazing, the fireworks were amazing. I am completely inspired by Amanda Gorman. I feel happier than I have in 4 years and thought the entire day, the planner in me was thinking of all the logistics all this took, and because I am inspired by the day, I hope to be part of the inauguration of the first woman president because #goals. I am brave enough to see it and brave enough to be it.
Hope renewed!
