Image is Everything…The Cover Image of a Professional

Image is Everything…The Cover Image of a Professional

For approximately one year, I have been torn rather or not to openly discuss this topic or rather to just stay confined in my own world and not involve myself with the image of others. Should the image of a successful event professional be displayed in their outer appearance?  Does it prohibit the professional from performing his or her task or conducting business?  Does Outward Image + Job Capabilities/Talent = Successful Professional?  These are the questions that I ponder in my mind as I travel through this vast and colorful event industry that is so ever-changing and has an endless...

Real Weddings by Perfect Planning…Rustic Setting at The Barnes at Wolf Trap

Last year I had the amazing opportunity to assist with orchestrating the wedding of Lisa & Jim for their eclectic rustic style wedding on August 18th, 2012 at The Barnes at Wolf Trap.  Each detail of this romantic union was compatible to their personality and love for each other.  Love and romance ran deep not only with Lisa and Jim but down to all of their family and friends that helped them to share their special day.  At the reception, Jim sang a love song that he had written for Lisa; Lisa with her amazing talents created the welcome sign...

Inspirations for Weddings in 2013…Movies & Television Drama

Inspirations for Weddings in 2013…Movies & Television Drama

TV & Movies are shaping the wedding industry this year…Bride’s are taking the iconic era of film and using it as a style trend/decor for their weddings.  And there are two very unique entertainment productions this year that are at the forefront of wedding design inspiration.  First, there is the box office movie premiere of The Great Gatsby with leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio and with leading lady, Carey Mulligan.  As I take a look at this movie and it’s era, the 1920’s, I start to think of things or ideas that will illustrate a great wedding design board: the design...
