I had the pleasure of being asked to be the month-of coordinator for Michelle & Brandon’s beautiful Monday wedding ceremony at the gorgeous Della Terra Mountain Chateau.
After initially meeting with Brandon & Michelle, I knew this was going to be a very cool and relaxed wedding. As avid fans of Geocaching, hiking and camping, Brandon proposed to Michelle by leading her to a gorgeous mountain top via his Geocaching clues. She instantly said yes and the planning began.
Although I was brought in a few months prior to the wedding, I felt an instant connection with Brandon & Michelle, and was truly honored to be part of their special day.
Michelle & Brandon – thank you for allowing me and Jason to witness your wedding. It’s very clear to us that you both love each other so very much and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

I thought I would share with you one of my favorite flowers, the beautiful Calla Lily. This is one flower that screams to me “Mysterious, Seductive, and Classy”. There are so many ways you can incorporate this beautiful flower into your wedding whether acting as a stand alone or mixed with other flowers. Below are just a few of inticing arrangements that hopefully can inspire you for your own wedding.
Until next time,
As you can tell, I think saying Thank You is one of the most important things a bride & groom can do during the planning and commencement of their wedding. To continue from my post on 6/22/09, I wanted to add a little more:
Thank you notes are a type of social stationary and are also known as informals. Informals can match the invitation or they can be generic, which allows them to be used for other purposes.
Informals commonly include the monogram of the couple. If the bride is taking the last name of the groom, her first initial is on the left, the initial of the shared last name is larger and in the middle, and the groom’s first initial is on the right.
Some couples will include a wedding photograph in theri thank-you notes. Every guest might receive the same picture, or the photos can be personalized, which is common with weddings where instant cameras were used as party favors. This allows the couple to share the moments that were documented by their guests.
Last, thank-you notes should neverbe pre-printed or generic; each note should be specific to both the guest and the gift. For larger weddings, I can assist you with both gift documentation and thank-you note writing so that the information is correct and the notes go out in a timely manner. In terms of etiquette, informals should be send out within a month after the wedding. However, a late thank-you note is better then none. Separate shower and weddings gifts from the same person should be acknowledged in different notes. Furthermore, monogrammed informals indicating a changed last name should never be sent out until after the wedding.
Here are a couple of ideas for inexpensive thank-you cards through Shutterfly; some are text only and others you can include a photo:

Get creative with your thank you cards and don’t be shy to have fun! Remember, the thank you notes will be a reflection of your wedding and the personalities of the bride & groom.
Until next time, happy planning!
