On Saturday, November 25th, 2017, my fantastic team of vendors and models descended upon the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Canton, Ohio, for a styled bridal photo shoot. I have been planning this event for some time. One of my favorite movies stars Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire – Funny Face. It’s the only movie they ever made together. My video partner, Joseph Testa Productions, filmed the whole day, and put together a great video! We would like to share it with you! Just click the link and enjoy!

I love, love, love the movie “Funny Face”, with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire! It was the perfect combination of story, song, dance, and fashion! The fact that the majority of the story took place in Paris, France, just adds to the charm of the movie. The scenery was amazing. I highly recommend that you view it sometime!
This is my take on a wedding inspired by this iconic cinematic masterpiece. I would love to create this for a couple, or even a styled photo shoot. If anyone would like to work on this with me, please feel free to send me a message!

Educating yourself about a wedding planner (or consultant or coordinator), and what they do, is quickly becoming a required part of planning a wedding. Many couples these days are planning long distance affairs, or have demanding work schedules that do not allow for endless meetings with vendors and locations for their wedding. Often, couples have to make decisions quickly, and without as many choices of locations, materials, or referrals of vendors as they would really like. This is where the knowledge and practical experience of a wedding planner becomes invaluable.
Perhaps you have already heard or read some reasons why it is beneficial to hire a coordinator. It’s true that we wear many hats in this industry. We must be able to take on a wide variety of duties in order to serve the needs of our clients. We are able to recommend vendors and service providers that we have worked with before. We also help a client stay within their budget, often saving them money, and may advise them on wedding etiquette questions. We can help clients shop for their wedding attire, as well as that of their wedding party. We generally coordinate all of the client’s plans. Of course, the biggest service we provide is to keep your rehearsal, wedding day and reception on track. But I believe the most valuable service we provide is that of stress relief. We are there to lift the burden from the clients’ shoulders, whether it is just making sure that the vendors have all arrived on time and are setting up the party to specifications, to calming any last minute nerves and offering words of encouragement. We take care of any details that our clients wish, from just a sounding board when they are starting to plan, to searching out the best deals on locations, vendors, and materials. We are the people that pick up the ball and run with it, to paraphrase a sports metaphor. Our only job is to make sure our clients are completely happy, and that the event goes off flawlessly!
We are pleased to have assisted in the Holiday Elopement of Joe and Jenn, during Thanksgiving weekend! Joe and Jenn have been together for many years, and finally decided to tie the knot. The Reverend Catherine Daniels joined the lovebirds in marriage at the picturesque gazebo outside of the North Canton Civic Center, in North Canton, Ohio. We provided a custom bouquet, toasting glasses and a sparkling beverage for celebrating their union, and a few other fun little gifts. Congratulations, you two! We wish you many years of happiness and blessings!
