Wedding MBA Recap!

logo_1

What a whirlwind the month of October has been! We have been traveling from coast to coast speaking and meeting new and interesting people.

At the beginning of the month, we headed out to Las Vegas for the annual Wedding MBA conference- one of our favorites! Every moment was jam packed with education- from upcoming trends to customer experience, there was something for everyone. We most enjoyed Sonny Ganguly’s session on Technology (of course!).

The highlight of our trip was absolutely the 2nd Annual WIPA Awards, where we took home the prize for Lighting Designer of Excellence! What an exciting honor it was, and made even more special being surrounded by so many of our peers.

We can’t forget to give a shoutout to WeddingWire for putting on an amazing party Tuesday night, and our friends at the Tri-Valley Wedding Pros for such a fun dinner!

Meet Virginia Santa Ines from San Jose Marriott

This is a part of our Creative Collaboration series, where we introduce you to our creative partners from all around the Bay Area. Today, we’re introducing you to Virginia Santa Ines from the San Jose Marriott.

san-jose-marriott-hotel

A prominent hotel in the San Jose area, the Marriott has been serving couples since 2003 featuring beautiful ballrooms and hotel suites.

The wedding and hospitality business has been a part of Virginia’s life since she can remember -you could even say it’s in her blood, as several members of her family are also in the business.

Virginia loves what she does for so many reasons, but most of all she loves seeing the lit up faces of the couples as they walk down aisle and can watch as their dreams of a perfect wedding come true!

She shared a few words of wisdom with us to pass along to engaged couples. “There are no rights or wrongs. It’s your special day, do what you feel is right. The day won’t be perfect, but I promise you it will all work out and be fabulous!”

NACE Experience 2016 Recap

We had an amazing whirlwind trip to the NACE Experience Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL this past July 17-20! It’s always a great time when we’re able to get together with our peers from all over the country. A big thank you to The Diplomat Resort for hosting us and for putting me up in a room with the most beautiful view!

The conference was full of wonderful educational sessions and panels – we especially enjoyed the first ever WIPA NACE panel, focusing on food and beverage!

I was also thrilled to speak on two of my favorite topics:

Tech Apps for Your Event Company

My thanks go out to NACE for the opportunity to speak and to the fantastic audiences who attended my sessions!

Ceremony

How To: Coordinate Your Wedding Ceremony

Coordinating your wedding ceremony can be quite the undertaking, especially considering that there are so many moving parts to look after. From getting the wedding party in order to making sure the flower girl(s) and ring bearer know their cue and the officiant is on schedule, it’s enough to make one person’s head spin! Thanks to your amazing wedding party (and coordinator!), you won’t have to go through it alone.

One of the most important steps when it comes to coordinating your ceremony is to simply get organized. Create a timeline for your wedding day and communicate this to the wedding officiant. This will help him/her ensure that your ceremony doesn’t drag on for too long. After a while, your guests will be ready to eat, drink and be merry! Remember to mention any special rituals (i.e. lighting a unity candle, rose presentation, or jumping the broom) that you wish to perform during the ceremony as well.

Next, get into the details of which friends and family members will be playing which roles. Outside of assembling the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the bride needs to determine who will be the maid, matron or maiden of honor and, of course, the groom needs to choose his best man.

There are serious duties that come along with holding a high office in the wedding party, so choose wisely! The matron or maid of honor and best man are in charge of assisting the couple throughout the ceremony and most importantly, holding on to the rings.

Don’t forget about the little ones in your wedding party! You’ll need a ring bearer and flower girl(s). In particular, the ring bearer will need a trusted adult to hand him the wedding rings before he walks down the aisle. If you have a younger, more rambunctious ring bearer on your hands, swap the real rings for decoys that he can carry down the aisle instead.

Once your wedding party is situated, start thinking about your guests’ needs. One thing’s for sure, they’ll need a place to sit! Make sure that you have greeters or ushers on hand to pass out programs and guide everyone to their seats. Also, while you’re checking off your list, remember that everyone will need to hear what’s going on at the altar. Ensure that you have a solid sound system so that the officiant and your vows are heard loud and clear.

The ceremony is the highlight of your entire wedding day, so make it a good one! Create an experience that everyone will cheer about for years to come!

Meet Derek Eddy From Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort & Spa

This is a part of our Creative Collaboration series, where we introduce you to our creative partners from all around the Bay Area. Today, we’re introducing you to Derek Eddy from Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort and Spa

Screen Shot 2016-06-16 at 3.21.37 PM

Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort and Spa is a boutique resort that serves as a wedding venue, day spa, and olive orchard.

Derek had been a successful photographer since 2004 with his own studio in Las Vegas but he found himself still wanting more out of the event industry. In 2011, Derek and his wife, Rhiannon, packed their lives up and moved to Livermore to fulfill their dream of owning their own wedding venue – thus, the Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort and Spa!

For Derek, it’s his passion as a photographer and venue owner that continues to inspire him each and every day. He can’t get enough of capturing people’s special moments, the love, camaraderie, and friendships from both clients and fellow professional. “There is nothing more special than having a couple say thank you in tears once they view their wedding images,” he shares.

If Derek had a week off, the old world wine scene of France would be calling his name. However, he tells us that chances are he’d end up at Disney World or another place that his 3-year-old prefers!

When working with couples, Derek’s advice is to use professional vendors. “Couples don’t always understand how one unprofessional vendor has the potential to ruin all of their great planning!”

First Dance

First Dance Favorites

After you’ve said your vows and sealed them with a kiss, it’s time to get the party started! The first dance will kick things off, which means you’ll need to have the perfect song on hand. Whether you want to slow dance beneath the stars or turn things up a notch, we’ve got you covered. Take note of a few of our favorite songs that’ll give you the first dance of your dreams!

“At Last” – Etta James
What a relief it is to finally marry the guy or girl of your dreams! “At Last” is a wonderful record for the couple taking a more classic approach to their first dance. You can’t beat swaying to James’ smooth vocals and the songs beautiful lyrics. Every newlywed can relate to the feeling of at last finding true love, which makes this classic perfectly fitting for a first dance!

“Thinking Out Loud” – Ed Sheeran
In the chorus, Sheeran croons, “So honey, now, take me into your loving arms.” Could this song be any better for a first dance?! “Thinking Out Loud” celebrates an eternal love that holds strong even through old age. Play this song as you sway across the dance floor and the song’s magic will surely rub off on your marriage!

“Unforgettable” – Nat King Cole & Natalie Cole
Here’s a lovely song that will help create an “unforgettable” moment out on the dance floor. The Coles sing about falling in love with someone so incredible and that special someone finding you just as incredible in return. Everyone will be swooning once your DJ puts the needle down on this record!

“I Found You” – Alabama Shakes
Need a love song with a lot of oomph? Put Alabama Shakes’ “I Found You” at the top of your go-to list. Their upbeat single is an excellent choice considering that you’re going to have many reasons to tear up the dance the floor with your mate. For the couple that wants abandon the traditional first “slow” dance, here’s a great way to shake things up!

You can’t go wrong with any of these amazing songs. You’re bound to give your guests a show that they’ll never forget!
