Kylee & Gregg

June 2006

Kylee and Gregg are college sweethearts and good friends of mine. Kylee wanted their wedding to be personal and reflect their simple style, so she was adamant about making everything herself, with the help of family and friends. Everything from their invitations, to her wedding dress, flower bouquets, centerpieces, and even their dog Jax's ring bearer tux and pillow were handmade with love. My job, as their wedding day coordinator, was to make sure everything went smoothly on their big day. I was also co-emcee at their reception! After the dinner program, their reception pretty much turned into one big dance party! I've never seen so many guests eager to hit the dance floor and bust a move! It is safe to say that everyone had a great time! This February, Kylee and Gregg welcomed their beautiful daughter Kenzi to the world.

Jolene & Joe

August 2005

Jolene and Joe came to me to plan their destination wedding. They live in Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada and they were looking for a small intimate affair on Oahu with their close friends and family. Hawaii is a special place for them because Joe was born in Honolulu. The challenge for me was to keep the costs of their wedding within their tight budget. Their wedding is what ignited this "wedding planning journey" and I am happy that they trusted me to deliver on their special day. I could not have asked for a better first wedding planning experience than with Jolene and Joe.
