The Dreamsicle Wedding

Jenny Wilson started planning her orange and ivory wedding 24 months out. At least that’s when she came to SSD Events and I met her. She knew that it would be worth it. After all, she waited 10 years for a proposal from Myron. And boy oh boy it could not have...

The Planned Proposal

Weddings. I’m obsessed with it all. Let’s be honest. From beginning to end. Proposals though. Next to wedding cake and super sparkly things, proposals are literally a few of my favorite things. Cue Kenny Rogers singing “My favorite things.” The only thing that can...

It’s Been One Year

Always N Forever Photography Happy anniversary to me. Today is exactly 365 days since I left my job of wedding and event planning at a hotel and biweekly paychecks so that I could plan weddings full time with Signed Sealed Delivered Events- the little wedding planning...

Great things always happen at coffee shops

Honestly, I do not think these pictures and this day could have been more magical. Except if the sun would have given off a bit more heat to warm our little Jessica’s arms and legs. I was honored to be a part of such a A list team of wedding pro’s in this...

Bridezillas: Myth or Reality

It turns out that weddings are a booming business. Especially for those in reality TV production. I have plenty of clients who refer to David Tutera and Kleinfeld’s within the first 10 minutes of our consultation. I never actually paid much attention to these...

Reflections on Joy

What brings you joy? They say life is short, I think we can all agree with that. So why spend your life stressed, unhappy or in a place, job or relationship that is less than fulfilling; that doesn’t bring you true joy? And have you found your joy? What fills...

Post Valentine’s Day Sentiments

It’s no big shocker that I love Valentine’s day and all things love… in fact I love LOVE all year round 365 days a year. I think about it morning, noon and night. I pin it, I quote it, I post it, I cover it in glitter and hang it on my wall, I put it...

The Few. The Proud. The Gung Ho Groom.

I am a constant chatterbox about my brides and how much I love them. How I love working with them and creating the wedding that they have imagined. Bringing it all together piece by piece, detail by detail, month by month until it’s day by day and then hour by...

Dreams Do Come True

A few of my closest know that I am a huge fan of Mary Poppins and that the word “magical” is in my hourly vocabulary. So for me to title this post like a Disney movie is not as cliche as it may seem. Perhaps it is because you don’t know me well...

Renee’s 40th Birthday Bash

Every single event, celebration and wedding that I am a part of holds a special place in my heart. I am a sentimental broad, I will not tell a lie. Now I will admit I didn’t know Renee until the moment she walked into her 40th birthday party but I spent plenty...

Nick Proposes to Ashlie

Folks say that girls spend years dreaming up their weddings. This may be true… but first they dream about the boy and then they dream about the proposal. And then the wedding. Proposals are one of the most intimate, heartfelt, most vulnerable,...

The Magic of Winter Style Shoot

I believe that I am one of the few who truly LOVE winter. L.O.V.E. it. I love bundling up in hats and scarves and mittens and big puffy coats, drinking hot chocolate, boots with the fur (the whole crowd was lookin at her.. just kidding I won’t start that again)...

An Afternoon at the Grafton Winery

I met the owners of the Grafton Winery a few years ago and now consider them friends. Mike and Lori are easy going, down-to-earth and have a passion for the vine incomparable to most. And it’s not just the wine that they have the love for, it’s the people...

Those Who Can’t Wed Plan

The famous Jennifer Lopez line from the movie The Wedding Planner has been ingrained in my head since college. I will be cliché and admit that that movie did indeed spawn the dream for me to be a wedding planner. As a hopeless romantic who gushes over every single...

When I Grow Up

I love connecting with people, building friendships and creating networks of wedding professionals who can come together and make a girl’s dream come true and rock their reception- beyond what they thought was even possible. I’ve been making these...

My Day with B Huffman

Since I met Becky Huffman, about 5 years ago, I was convinced that I needed to become a florist and wear galoshes (yes I call them galoshes, not wellies, I prefer the traditional Paddington Bear galoshes) and an embroidered apron with my name on it. I love making...
