Make sure you have a wide variety of spirits at your bar so all of your guests can find something they like.

We recommend having at least one vodka, one rum and one tequila - don't forget about your margaritas!

We hear of this "no chocolate wedding cake" nonsense and are appalled. If you want chocolate cake then you should have chocolate cake. Period!

Pastry chefs are talented artists and are able to “disguise” whatever flavors you have on the inside with the design on the outside. So go ahead, choose your favorite cake flavor and eat it too.

What is your favorite cake flavor?

Did you hear the news?! Engagement season has officially begun with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announcing their plans to get married spring 2018. Congratulations to the happy couple! #royalwedding #2018 #engagement #weddingplanning

Prince Harry has a reputation as rule breaker. Do you think his wedding will be traditional or full of surprises?

The British royal family is officially getting an American member. Prince Harry has proposed to Meghan Markle.

Wish Upon a Wedding Just Granted Its 105th Wish!

Helping others has always been a important foundation in my life both personally and professionally.

Therefore, when I was asked to play the part of a Wish Upon a Wedding ambassador to assist a bride with a terminal illness, I had no hesitations. The experience was moving, an honor, and something I will always remember.

Thank you Martha Stewart Weddings for bringing awareness to such an amazing organization.

Thank you Wish Upon a Wedding for hosting another wonderful fundraiser that brought so many people together to support such a beautiful cause. It's always an honor to be on the guest list.

Until next year!

The nonprofit grants weddings for people with life-altering circumstances.

No matter the celebration, guest love to let their hair down and show off in front of the camera. Add a customized backdrop to coordinate with your event theme and you've a great way to entertain guests and capture memories all at the same time.

First Monday in May : Watch the Trailer for the New Met Gala Documentary

True story.

Often movies about wedding and event planning are a comedy, romance or a romantic comedy. This leads the outside world to glamorize and simplify what it is to be a professional event planner.

Gone is the hot love interest, flamboyant planner and crazed parents for dramatic effect. First Monday in May is a documentary that unveils what Pinterest dosen’t. All the work it really takes to produce a successful event!

SNEAK PEAK!
A rare behinds the scenes look at some of the stunning Oscar parties Sunday night. Events with fabulous food and astonishing decor are not solely limited to weddings. It's all about being creative and producing unique event designs.

How unique are your wedding plans?

Academy governor Jeffrey Kurland worked with longtime producer Cheryl Cecchetto and Sequoia Productions to produce and design the Governors Ball, which drew 1,500 invited guests to a room that was decorated in a blush-colored palette.

News broke about this on late Friday and has a lot of industry professionals are extremely upset. A colleague's blog explains how in the world of weddings several claim to be consultants and or planners but very few truly fit the bill. The problem? Not all are not equal.

This isn’t the first time this has happened. First it was the reception venues, “And you’ll work with our wedding planner to handle all of your details.” And the little church lady, “Schedule your rehearsal with our wedding coordinator.” Barnes and Noble offers dozens of wedding planners... in paper…

What millennial wedding celebrations are all about - The Boston Globe

One of my brides shared this article with me. We were discussing the importance of designing a wedding that reflect a couple's creativity, uniqueness and personalities. I love Pinterest but don't you get tired of looking at the same weddings duplicated over and over again on blogs?

We are unique and our celebrations should be too. Let's dare to be different in 2016!

Hint: It doesn’t have anything to do with a trendy gown, expensive cake, or splashy location.

My first #FBF of 2016 is on a bitter sweet note:

In 2010 I collaborated with an fun, spirited and fabulously unique couple to plan a wedding of their dreams. Old Hollywood, glamour, sophistication and celebrating in a big way was the theme for “Thirteen Years in the Making” A New Years Even Wedding on December 31, 2010.

I was devastated to learn Frank passed away suddenly from cancer on December 24, 2015, just one week before his 5 year wedding anniversary. Frank was warm, energetic and had a larger that life spirit. He was the only groom I’d ever witnessed who shook hands, kissed and hugged his guests as he processed down the aisle. It was priceless!

Witnessing Frank and Colleen fall even deeper in love on their wedding night was something I will always remember. Many are confused but you see the most important things at a wedding aren’t the flowers, music, lighting or midnight balloon drops. It’s being sounded by the ones you love and those who love you.

So for all those who were able to ring in the new year with a loved one count your blessings and never take a moment for granted. I ask you to make it a goal to celebrate life in some way, however small, every day. For tomorrow is not always promised but it's those special moments will last forever in your heart.

I will miss you dearly and dedicate every celebration I plan in 2016 to you Frank.

Eva Longoria's Engagement Ring Is Gorgeous - and Surprising!

Another stunning ring while engagement season is in full swing!

What's that you say? You didn't know there was a season for wedding engagements. Ah yes, November-February are the most popular months to pop the question. In fact, 17% of engagements happen on the same 10 days each year and nearly 40% of engagements occur between November and February. The top ten most popular dates include major holidays such as Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years’ Day, and Valentine’s Day.

What month did you get engaged?

It's hard to decide which is more surprising, Eva Longoria's announcement that she's engaged or the ring fiancé, Jose Antonio Baston, chose to propose to her with!...

Still looking for that perfect dress design with a little something special? Well, today marks one of my favorite times of the year, NYC Bridal Fashion Week! Lovely lace, sparkling sequin and trails of tulle. Will be flowing over the street of Manhattan this weekend. I'm beyond excited to be shopping for my brides. Cause where else will you be able to find the perfect dress that reflects your personal style if you dare to be different.
