Weekend & Paris Packing

This week has been a whirlwind with two big events that we just completed tonight. I'm exhausted but exhilarated because they were both so beautiful and went so smoothly. If I can give one piece advice to any brides out there, it's this; hire great vendors. If your caterer's food is fabulous but their service is awful, no one remembers the food. If the DJ/Band has great music but are horrible MCs, those awkward moments can really put a damper on the evening. It's amazing how many details go into a  wedding, and I'm so happy to be working with such an incredible people that are so OCD it makes an evening magical. Those are the kind of people you want working on your wedding, I promise. Those details make all the difference.

The husband is at a great friend's wedding in Raleigh, and although my heart aches that I couldn't see two of my dear friends get married, it's what I signed up for when I decided that I wanted to be in the wedding industry. Happy, happy, happy wedding dear Rachel and Todd. I missed you both so much tonight and I wish I could have been there to see all of the incredible moments as well as to hear and dance to  Backbeat. Love you both and can't wait to hear about everything!

The time has come and Paris is only one day away. Tomorrow is filled with meetings so I'm left with hardly anytime to pack for Paris. I can't believe it's already here. I promise lots of photos and maybe even a post or two while I'm away. In the meantime, if you have any suggestions on Paris, let me know!


  1. HAVE SO MUCH FUN IN PARIS!!!!! I can't wait to hear/read about it!!

  2. You have GOT to go to Monet's home. It's gorgeous and surreal, especially if you love any of his paintings. It's outside the city. A picnic in the Luxemburg Gardens is very nice. I Also suggest a riverboat dinner cruise on the Seine. Have fun! Paris is amazing!
