VOW Wedding ~ Giselle & Efrain 8.24.12

This wedding was a little bitter sweet ~ Mainly because as my wedding day approaches I’ve decided to take a small sabbatical from planning client weddings. I will continue working with my vendors on referrals and consulting brides on a minimal basis ~ But I need to focus on my up & coming wedding & I don’t want to overload myself with clients. I look forward to starting to re-book in the future!

So for the past year I’ve had the pleasure of working with a wonderful Bride & Groom {Giselle & Efrain}. I’m gonna speak to the planners out there in the world. There is NOTHING like a client that not only trusts your expertise, but doesn’t micro-manage you & gives you creative freedom {hence why they originally hired you}. Giselle was the type of Bride that Planners have dreams about: pleasant, calm, confident & trusting of your judgement. I’ve been lucky in my career to have worked with such wonderful couples & these two were right up there with the best of the best.

VOW Wedding Consulting was called upon to bring her Miami flavor wedding come to life. We worked through all the details throughout the year ~ design elements, budgeting, to do’s, vendor referrals & contract negotiations, creating her itinerary, soup to nuts, I was her partner in crime {as she liked to refer to me}. I even designed a few of her signs to match her invitations. I was extremely pleased with how everything came out.

I had the pleasure of hiring one of my best friends Keara who’s a freelance photographer {KPrints} to shoot this wedding ~ There really is something special about working an event with a close friend who you know you can count on to deliver quality.

The Dynamic Duo ~ VOW & KP

My Bride was ready to walk down that aisle, on time {as always} and when we drove up to the church it was truly one of the most beautiful ones I’ve ever seen. Most Holy Redeemer Church in the lower east side of Manhattan located on 3rd between A & B Avenues was an incredible site.

As soon as the ceremony was over I whisked the B & G away to take some portrait pictures throughout the city. We got in my car & went down to the South Street Seaport to capture their love by the water with a fantastic backdrop of the city. Along the way we found some additional backdrops that we knew we needed to capture. And this is why I love New York City!

{Check out the full photo album HERE from KPrints}

For the venue we picked Chateau Briand as their venue because of the lounge feel the back courtyard had & all the white furniture really gave her the overall look she wanted. Modern, Chic & Hip.

The Bride really trusted my professional expertise and trusted the vendors that I recommended for flowers & decor ~ Santos Floral Designs as always delivered incredible design & floral arrangements. It’s no wonder they are the floral designers for my wedding.

And when you first walked into the main room you were blown away by how beautiful the Escort Table piece was ~ along with the other decor throughout the venue

Other vendors that made this day possible were Camelot Limos ~ Who is VOW’s preferred transportation provider because of their amazing precision, great cars & service. They provided my client with transportation to the wedding & a party bus after the ceremony for those heading back to Chateau. White glove service all the way. 

JG Productions was the music vendor & they brought the house down. The music was lively ~ Fun to the point were I couldn’t stop moving on the sidelines as I observed & worked the wedding. I have to admit I even danced a little bit next to the Bride on the dance floor {she egged me on to show her my Latin dance moves…and of course I had to comply}. The wedding also had a percussionist called Broadway Anthony & he was amazing. He not only had the style & the moves, but he got everyone moving! Can I say MORE COWBELL!!!

So all in all it was another successful wedding ~ We had amazing weather ~ The Bride was incredibly happy, as per her wonderful review the following Monday.

I would also like to thank the wonderful staff at Chateau Briand {Lisa: Maitre’d & Jeanine: Bridal Attendant} for making my client’s day perfect. You all did a fantastic job & from my perspective it was a true joy & pleasure working with you throughout the night. You made my job easier by the constant communication & coordination.

Stay tuned for continued developments on our 2.23.13 Wedding…

A “SWEET” Treat Experience

The wedding planning process continues ~ With our cake tasting experience a few weeks ago! This was by far one of the most fun things we’ve done together…I mean who doesn’t like going to a bake shop & sample all the wonderful flavors they make & talk about yet another creative vision that I have design wise.

And the groom couldn’t really complain that I got him up relatively early to eat cake….Our venue’s exclusive bakery is The Sweet Peace located in Lynbrook, NY. A wonderfully adorable shop on this cute street with smaller shop type vendors. When you first walk in it has this homemade feel to it. It’s quaint with a lot of charm & I have to say unexpected that they picked a shop with a small business mom & pop type ambiance. I was pleasantly surprised they support local businesses.

Ok so onto meeting Allison the head chef/baker ~ To say she was delightful was an understatement ~ And we soon realized that we had a very ironic connection with her having lived in Long Beach for 8 years. Needless to say after sitting & just getting to know each other we both knew she was our baker & this was going to be a great process.

{Meet Allison the chef @ The Sweet Peace by clicking image}

We sat at the table and were welcomed with a beautiful variety of sample mini cupcakes ~ all having different cake & toppings {fillings} to try. The combinations were pretty unique & yet again a very unexpected treat.

Now tell me that doesn’t look absolutely delectable

We talk about the overall vision of our day ~ the look & feel of our wedding ~ elegant, simple, classic with a twist ~ and in talking to her she was giving me ideas that sounded like music to my ears ~ Allison got it ~ and that’s all I was hoping for.

We had some amazing flavors ~ caramel with sea salt ~ black forest ~ “Granny” which is the closest resemblance to cannoli cream but BETTER ~ oreo {which was amazing} ~ and one of our personal favorites cinnabun {cinnamon bun bursting in your mouth}. Very unique flavors paired together & we realized that this wasn’t going to be just an everyday wedding cake. AND one of the most amazing things about this shop is it’s ALLERGEN FREE {PEANUT FREE/TREE NUT FREE} so any of your guests that can’t eat peanuts or anything made in a peanut facility is good to go & enjoy anything from this wonderful place. {They also have Gluten Free recipes too}

*We were thrilled to be able to tell our niece that for the first time ever she would be able to eat “fancy wedding cake”!*

As some of my closest & dearest know I’m not great with surprises or keeping things unplanned ~ However, I made the executive decision to keep the wedding cake flavors a complete & utter secret from even US! Allison from The Sweet Peace has full artistic freedom to make the inside of our cake anything she thinks will work really well together. Now this was out of the realm of anything even I thought I would be OK with ~ BUT in life there really are so few surprises left ~ Knowing the inside of your cake after a few guidelines isn’t the end of the world.

It will be a wonderful treat to cut the cake ~ and be pleasantly surprised as to what’s inside. I also think this will entice us to take more than just one bite of our cake creating a few more photo ops. Hmmmmm I wonder what is in store for us.

The design of the cake however, is a little bit more hands on. I mentioned a few things that I would like to incorporate on the cake, gave her a few options & left it up to her to come up with a first draft of our wedding cake. Here below is the first draft of our cake with both of our comments {I’ve erased a few details as to not disclose everything ~ final results & images after wedding of course}.

I loved the initial vision she came up with ~ I had a few comments & notes {of course} but she really got the vision & gets me in general ~ I really look forward to referring many more clients to her bakery & hope that we can build a long lasting business relationship. VOW & The Sweet Peace join forces as they become a part of the V-Team & has become my preferred bakery for VOW Wedding Consulting.

You can also check out her Facebook page: The Sweet Peace Facbook. So go check it out & see some of the amazing cakes they make. You can also stop by their shop & bring home a box or just a few mini cupcakes to eat immediately.

So that concludes our wedding cake tasting experience & we couldn’t be happier ~ We had a wonderful time ~ And we can’t wait to see what she has picked out for us. Thank you again Allison for giving us a wonderful experience.

Christine & Eddy: Highlight Video

It’s here! And I’m very excited. My client’s highlight video by Love & You Video. I’m not gonna lie ~ I got a little emotional & all choked up. It’s really amazing to see these videos & witness the joy in their faces after the fact. Working my client’s weddings you get wrapped up in everything & don’t have time to just watch the couple’s happiness & bliss throughout the day. You see it, but it’s not the same as sitting back & watching a beautifully crafted piece of art like this highlight video shows. And as I watch I think ~ WOW I was a part of this wonderful couple’s most amazing day ~ This is why I do this ~ And I had a direct hand in helping them achieve their perfect & most important day.

I love planning weddings ~ I love seeing my clients radiate with happiness & satisfaction ~ And I absolutely love being a part of such an amazing day for all my clients. Thank you Matthew from Love & You Video for creating such an incredible video. Amazing work!

 

I hope you enjoyed this video as much as I did. It was a pleasure working with Love & You Video & look forward to running into each other again in the wedding world.

VOW Wedding: Christine & Eddy

This past weekend I did a client wedding in Central Park at the Boathouse. I’ve been working with this client since last year & Christine & Eddy came to me as a referral from a prior client who’s wedding I did back in 2009 ~

Click on image to take you to post about their big day

Christine & Eddy were wonderful clients to work with. The Bride knew what she wanted & was extremely organized…but once in a while she came to me to ask for some advice, perspective or contract negotiations with vendors. She had a vision….she just needed some help in executing it flawlessly.

It was an absolutely gorgeous Saturday ~ May 19th, 2012…I’ve been truly blessed by what I call the “Wedding Gods” because there hasn’t been one client of mine that hasn’t had a truly incredible day {knocking on wood as we speak}….or any wedding that I’ve “touched” per say…I hope to maintain my good wedding juju for as long as I do this {and more importantly mine in 9 Months exactly to the day!!!!

{Boathouse ~ Central Park}

The bride chose to get ready at the St. Regis Hotel in Manhattan ~ They were extremely customer service oriented & provided my client everything she needed.

She wore a beautiful Vera Wang ~ Makeup by Bobbi Brown artist Mary from Saks Fifth Avenue

Flowers by OVANDO Floral Design

I have to say one of the BRAVEST Brides I’ve ever had ~ This girl did her own wedding hair ~ And it came out amazing

The Bride & Groom {Christine & Eddy} were planned to do a first look ~ The only issue was the location. Unfortunately the areas that would be nice enough were being occupied by another Bride who was holding her wedding at the Hotel ~ So I just had to work with the Photographer {Shira Weinberger} to find a place that had good lighting.  So we positioned the groom right under the awning in front of the hotel ~ The lighting was perfect

I’m a traditionalist ~ However…recently I’ve become a HUGE fan of First Looks between the Bride & Groom. I think not only does it give the couple a really amazing moment to take each other in & not have to wait till after the ceremony {which now I think can take away from the initial I want to tell you how amazing you look comments} ~ But you also have the flexibility & freedom to take your  B&G pictures ahead of time & spend more time enjoying your party after the ceremony.

We then went into Central Park to take some beautiful pictures

Christine & Eddy got married in a lovely church called All Souls on 80th & Lex in NYC

They said I Do ~ And now it was time for the celebration

Vendors for this special day were as follows:

Venue: Central Park Boathouse

Photography: Shira Weinberger

Videographer: Love and You Video

Flowers: OVANDO Floral Design

Band: Hank Lane: J. Lamont

Wedding Day Coordination: VOW Weddings

And below are some images from the event ~ All went off without a hitch!

It was a truly beautiful day ~ My assistant & I had a wonderful time working this event & they were by far added to my favorite client’s list. The vendors were amazing & I look forward to working with them again.

I Said YES to the Dress!

On April 21st, 2012 I said YES to my Dress….and here is how the whole experience went down. Like I tell all my Brides right before they get their dresses….when they ask me, “but how will I know?”…I say trust me…you will know!

Everyday when I go to work I pass this small Bridal Boutique & my mom said why not, lets give it a try. It’s called Nouveau Bride  in Merrick, NY. I also made an appointment with Bridal Reflection in Massapequa {where most LI Brides do their shopping}…

Now of course as most Brides do, I did my research online, looking at dresses upon dresses, looking for THE ONE….I even watched like 15 straight episodes of “Say Yes to The Dress” {NY and Atlanta}…to get maybe an even better idea of what type of dress I wanted. Well…it didn’t seem to help cause I was all over the place. I had pictures of ball gown dresses, A-line, Trumpet & Lace. But what I did know is that I was willing to try ANY style & wasn’t “married” to one particular style of dress or fabric.

So we both went in with open minds & some pictures that as soon as we walked into Nouveau Bride’s shop I had to discard cause they had NONE of the styles that I brought with me. {shrug}…OK so back to the ol’ drawing board & completely from scratch. I said OK what DO you have?

Well I tried on Ball Gowns, I tried on ALL lace & Tulle Dresses…somehow the way things were going I didn’t think we were going to be here for long. I had a decent but NOT over the top budget because my wonderful Mom & Dad were planning on paying for the dress…I think I tried on about 5 dresses & nothing. Every time I walked out…Looked in the mirror…and felt NOTHING! Hmmmm….was this how it was gonna go?

I was already extremely anxious & excited for the day….so feeling discouraged at the way things were going wasn’t making my anxiety any better. Corey the lovely sales woman said “Hold on….I may have something in the back for you”….{I think subconsciously when they say I have something in the back there is an immediate impression of exclusivity…so my ears were already perked up}…

She comes back with a dress that when I first looked at it on the hanger I was under whelmed & felt like maybe it wasn’t me or too much. {I won’t disclose the full details of the dress…My Soon to Be Hubby reads my blog daily & I wouldn’t want to take anything away from the reveal}..

BUT I said what the heck…lets go for it. I put on the dress….she adds a little “something extra” to the dress & I don’t really spend much time looking in the mirror. I walk out of the dressing room with a “Hmmm…oh wow, this is nice” initial feeling. My mom has been waiting patiently outside, dress after dress, giving just a look & not being overly critical of the dresses I’ve come out with so far. I know she wanted to see MY expression first before she made hers as to not sway my decision in any way.

*NOTE: I tell ALL my Brides to lower the “entourage” when going dress shopping. Too many cooks in the kitchen can spoil the pot. Everyone has very different tastes & it’s better to have at most 2 people come with you on your dress appointment, who’s opinion you value the most.

I walked out in the dress….I get a better look in the mirror…I feel how it moves on my body…and I look at my mom…she looks at me….we look back at the mirror…she asks me to turn around…and we both start crying without saying ONE word to each other & we both knew it…We both said “THIS is MY Dress”….

BUT WAIT….we started laughing saying…”Wait wait…no we can’t start crying just yet…we have another dress appointment”….We did all the calculations & realized the dress was WAY over our budget. Hmmmm NOW WHAT? My mom was kind enough to say we aren’t ruling this out, BUT we have to go to Bridal Reflections & see what we find there. DEAL….we were on our way.

*NOTE 2: Stick to your Budget & look at dresses in your budget. One of the worst things you can do it try on dresses out of your price range because you MAY fall in love with one & then realize it’s not feasible from a price standpoint & all other dresses may pale in comparison. And you WILL become discouraged & frustrated with the process.

NOW I was getting excited…because at the end of the day I knew I had found THE Dress at one place & even if this appointment at Bridal Reflections wasn’t going to be successful, I didn’t have to start looking again. {Secretly, I don’t like clothes shopping or don’t like the process of going from dress shop to dress shop, even if some girls absolutely love this part the most. I wanted to find it. Feel it. And Buy it.}

Bridal Reflections had a few of the dresses I wanted to try on….which was great because I have to say, everything I thought would look good on me. Didn’t! NOT ONE single thing I wanted to try on looked like my dress, or something right on me or my body. Just wasn’t me. So we ventured off the list and tried on about 10 dresses.

There was one dress that I walked out with….I stood in front of the mirror…looked at my mom….had that feeling….was like OMG could this be it….felt it for 5 seconds…then POOF….it went quicker than it came. Hahah….I looked at my mom & said “OMG…MOM….{loooooong pause}…..NOPE….Just lost it…OK back to the dressing room”…It was rather funny actually.

And this was it {but then I realized that even though I simply loved the top…the bottom felt like a Christmas Tree}

{Designer: Martina Liana}

It was a stunning dress…but at the end of the day I knew it wasn’t ME per say. Soooo back to the dressing room….dress after dress…still nothing. And then I got to the point where I was about to try on another dress and I stopped the whole process. I felt bad, but I told the lady that I didn’t want to waste her time…she knew that I had felt something for another dress at my other appointment. And so I said I think I’m going to go get my dress. I just knew.

I walk out…look at my mom & she says “Ok Lu….Let’s go get your dress”….We walked out of there so excited to go back. I knew it from the moment we had THE moment together. Not a word exchanged just a look of total excitement & seeing myself IN the dress walking down the aisle to say I do to my best friend & soul mate.

The rest is really history…we went there…put it on again…walked around some more…it felt so right. And it’s so true what “they” say…When you KNOW…you just KNOW.

The Designer is Matthew Christopher & here is a small glimpse of some of his amazing structured dresses. {MINE is NOT included of course}…But I’ve never heard of this Designer before so I wanted to show everyone his incredible dresses. The Structure & lines on his work is amazing & his dresses are extremely reasonable. They range from $1500 – $5000! So all Brides I feel can afford his work. And the quality is impeccable.

{Designer & Images: Matthew Christopher}

I was lucky enough my Mom & Dad were flexible with the budget & were willing to say YES to this particular dress. I will be forever grateful to them for giving me such an incredible piece that I will feel & look amazing in as I walk down the aisle. So there you have it. My own personal “Say Yes to the Dress” experience. And honestly, I hope every single Brides gets to feel that amazing & thrilling feeling when they know they have found it. It’s an unforgettable moment that I will forever remember.

The DRESS!

Now of course I’m not going to disclose THE dress that I do decide to buy…but I wanted to write a post of just the overall process of shopping & where my mind is taking me right now as far as styles….what I wind up picking may be totally different from what I have in my head…but these are the styles I’m going for nonetheless.

{theknot}

Being that our wedding is going to be a Winter Evening Wedding…I think this Bride deserves a little pouf & a little sparkle…not too much…but just enough to give off a little glitter when I twirl.

I’ve never really been one for big ballroom type of dresses, but for someone reason I want to feel like the princess Jeff makes me feel like on a daily basis. I want my skirt to twirl during our first dance & I want my dress to make an entrance so to speak.

I have my first dress appointment with my mom on the 21st. We plan on going to Bridal Reflections in Massapequa & a small bridal boutique in Merrick called Moonlight Couture just cause it’s on the way & I always pass it when I’m at work.

My mom told me she has envisioned me in something special & different…but what that is I don’t know. What I DO know is that because my mom has worked in the fashion & celebrity industry for the majority of her life she’s seem some pretty amazing gowns and styles. I trust her taste implicitly & wouldn’t even dream of not hearing her out as to which dress I should pick. She’s absolutely my fashion guru & why would such an important decision be any different.

Devil is in the Details

There are so many elements that have to come together for any wedding. And ours is no exception. All I know is that I have this vision in my head & all I care about is bringing it to life. With all the bells & whistles I don’t want to skimp on anything. Now my fiance has been a real sport throughout this planning process & he’s been involved in many of the planning aspects. But when it comes to flowers, decor & the overall look of our wedding he’s basically said “It’s ALL you honey”. And I respect that…he looked at me like a dear in headlights when I told him about my floral design meeting & mentioned “monochromatic”, “floral trios”, “hanging votives” & “color palette”.

He had no clue what I was really talking about but listened intently nonetheless {this is the part of marriage I think he has down packed….look excited, smile & nod…when it comes to something girly} Hahah… I’m a big fan of having a dramatic reception room, so when I was speaking with my Event Manager, Kathy, at BYC she knew she had to send me a picture of a wedding they had there recently to show me what could be done with “lighting”. Thus leads me to my absolutely need to have up-lighting done in our reception room.

I love the glow of the room & I feel like it creates a really formal & elegant look.

The next step was hiring a Company that could give me great quality lights & provide an additional visual appeal that my florist wouldn’t necessarily be able to do for us.

We hired EJ the DJ for all of our music needs & knowing what they provided my clients in the past, I also knew they would be the people to do our lighting & room ambiance. So we looked to them for lighting options & they created a perfect package. Up-lighting is relatively inexpensive {a definite extra}, but can transform any room into something a little more romantic & dynamic than with traditional lighting.

We also looked to them to provide a little something extra for our Wedding that would accompany our DJ. What this is…I won’t tell yet….even though I’m documenting the whole process there are still quite a few surprises that I would like to keep under wraps. All will be revealed after our wedding….

Bringing the Vision to Life

Another vendor down…I booked my floral designer on Tuesday….This choice was easy because Santos Floral Designs is not only VOW Wedding‘s exclusive floral designer but I’ve used them for quite a few of my client weddings & referred them to my friends as well.

Christina Santos has worked with David Tutera on his show My Fair Wedding & did some freelance work with him after a tragic fire took down the whole block of stores in Long Beach, NY a few years ago. I was so happy to see her come back to the same spot.

Christina has been a huge part of my professional life & most recently personal because she was actually hired by my now fiance to set up an incredible proposal in our home while we were out.

The day Jeff proposed he had Christina come to our house & set up this beautiful display asking me to Marry Him….the moment I walked into our home my stomach dropped at the sight of this amazing set up.

When I turned around he was on one knee asking me to marry him. I cried & it took him several times of asking me to marry him before I said yes because I was just so overcome with emotion & joy.

I’ve known that Santos Floral Design was going to be my Wedding Day Florist for a very long time…I was just waiting for the moment to come where we could set up our brainstorming meeting & make my vision come to life. And this past Tuesday, we did just that.

We sat for almost 2 hours going over all the details I want {and boy are there plenty}….I want our guests to walk through the venue & be completely blown away by the flowers and decor. We finalized everything during our meeting. She’s an incredibly talented floral designer & I was jumping up & down as we were moving from page to page jotting down what she was going to create for us. I had it ALL in my head….and I needed someone to bring it to life….and she got it.

{images: santos floral designs}

I’m not going to spoil the surprise as to what I have planned. But all I can say is that it will be different. It will sparkle & I will bring the Winter Wonderland vibe indoors. {BUT there will be NO snowflake anything. Haha.Not my style}….The wedding is a formal/black tie optional adult only event. Classy but unpredictable. I’m really excited & can’t wait to do my walk-through with my Day of Coordinator {of course I have one} & see the spectacular vision brought to life right before our eyes.

Our Movie Magic

When planning my client weddings & my own there is a running theme of priorities. I tell all my clients when they start thinking about where & how to spend their money….where to put more towards the budget….they need to make a “NEED” list & “WANT” list. This helps all my clients determine if certain aspects of the wedding are more important than others & allowing for more of the funds to be allocated to that particular item.

For me…my “NEED” list was very simple. I “NEED” the following:

  • An incredible Cinematographer to shoot our wedding {Make Movie Magic}
  • A talented & creative photographer that shoots photojournalism style photos {or editorial}
  • And lastly a Floral Designer who can bring what I have in my head come alive

For me those three are really important. Movies & Photos can last a lifetime. And as I’ve mentioned before to me the way our wedding looks  is truly important & I really want my vision to come alive. {Speaking of Floral Decor, I’m actually going for my Floral Design appointment tonight…but I won’t disclose who & what we have planned till later in the week}.

So back to my Cinematographer….I have worked with some amazing videographers….and I had 3 that were on my wish list.

All these three cinematographers shoot in HD {but then again who doesn’t nowadays}…have an unobtrusive camera {it actually looks like a regular high quality hand-held camera}….and their highlight films & reels look like something out of a movie. The editing & the way they put the days events together is compelling & moves me every time I watch ANY of their Wedding Videos. Their work is very non-traditional cheesy wedding video.

I reached out to Moetic Films & their starting price for NY Shoots are $6,950 {Yaowza!} They do amazing work…but yet again my expensive tastes got the better of me. However, I knew I would find another vendor as equally talented…if not better! 😉

Magic Flute Videos has been a Company that I’ve worked with on several of my client weddings. Renzo is amazing to work with & love the way he shoots. Only problem, his Company goes away for Winter Months to Costa Rica…so they wouldn’t be around to actually shoot the wedding. Soooo back to the drawing board…

After doing some research online I came across 15 Minutes of Frame. To say I was blown away by their work is an understatement! Put it this way…I was so moved when I saw their wedding highlights on Vimeo I couldn’t help but start tearing up. And even though the other artists’ work is incredible…that was something they couldn’t do. Move me to tears. And that’s when I knew…They were our Cinematographers.

So far one of my favorite videos that I go back to watch over & over again is THIS HIGHLIGHT…Check it out! And tell me their work isn’t absolutely amazing.

So I reached out to Kaipo Schwab {who I’ve been in correspondence with before for other clients of mine AND to build a professional relationship to have them be one of VOW’s Exclusive Wedding Cinematographers}. We worked together on building a perfect package that gave us all the elements we wanted & working within our budget.

I was thrilled when it all worked out & we are now able to have them shoot our wedding. I honestly didn’t think I would be able to ever get them for our wedding but Kaipo was wonderful to work with & I’m so excited. Please check out their work, you will be blown away!

Next up….Photographers….
