Real Wedding: Ashley and Michael

Ashley and Michael’s Maui destination wedding was one of a kind.  Having roots in Hawaii, Ashley knew this was the place she wanted to get married and Micheal agreed. It was important to Ashley and Michael to find a private venue so their closest family and friends could share in this special day. Once they laid eyes on Sugarman Estate in Wailea, Hi they new it was the perfect spot.

Ashley made custom bridesmaid dresses for all her girls. While Micheal and his groomsmen wore light greyish blue suits to compliment the overall design. Ashley and Micheal didn’t want to block the gorgeous view of the ocean so Wildheart Florals created a semi circle floral piece that came a few feet off the ground.

Our favorite touch to the wedding was featuring Kimo Sabe Mezcal which our girl boss bride, Ashley founded! We had Garnish to whip up some amazing local craft cocktails to really wow their guests. The whole day was captured perfectly by Courtney Lindberg Photography.

411 on Your Wedding Room Block

Are your wedding room blocks stressing you out? We are here to share some of the best wedding room block tips and advice!

Planning your wedding can and should be one of the most exciting things in your life, but we know that the fun can get mired down in details, schedules and negotiations. One of the most necessary yet frustrating tasks can be securing a fantastic hotel room block. This is where a travel professional adds real value and can solve YOUR ROOM BLOCK DEBACLE. We have asked our friends at Ever After Honeymoons to shed some light on the subject.

IS A ROOM BLOCK NECESSARY?

It sure is, if you want your guests to have the best experience as possible at your wedding! They are assured a great room at the best price. It keeps all your guests close together and creates a feeling of intimacy. By having everyone in one hotel, you can offer special amenities and cut down on complex logistics. Additionally, it saves them the hassle of researching hotels.

NOW THAT YOU’RE CONVINCED THAT YOU NEED A ROOM BLOCK, WHAT’S NEXT?

Choosing the location: it all depends on your unique needs and vision. Whether it’s a simple room block, an entire property buy-out or securing specialty villas, EAH can arrange all your needs at destinations around the globe.

Getting the best deal: it’s easy to get confused and overwhelmed by all the contract lingo…attrition rates, shrinkage clauses, cut-off dates and cancellation policies. A travel professional can handle all price negotiations, contracts and payment details to make sure you receive the best rates and best arrangements.

Real Wedding: Lauren and Tom featured on 100 Layer Cake

Lauren and Tom’s Sedona Southwest Themed Destination wedding was one for the books! When they first started planning their wedding, they were looking in New York and California where Lauren grew up. After visiting Sedona one weekend where her parents now live, they decided this was the spot!  Seven Canyons Sedona was the place where they were going to host their southwest destination wedding with antlers and all!

We absolutely loved all the southwest details to include the aztec linens from La Tavola. The touches of succulents and antlers in the greenery runners were perfect.  We wanted to incorporate person touches as well. Lauren road horses during her childhood so we decided to include the horseshoe monogram in the paper goods. Additionally we used real horseshoes for escort cards.

LVL Academy: Fall Wedding Planner Workshop Day 2

We kicked off Day 2 of the wedding planner workshop with lessons learned. It all started back at our first workshop when we realized the best advice we’ve ever received came from others being open about sharing their mistakes. Now it has become a signature part of the workshops. We come with an open heart and let our guards down. This helps to create a space for great and authentic conversations.

Some other highlights include LVL Academy instructor, Heather, sharing her ultra prepared emergency kit. Carizza with 24 Carrots showing the students how to set a proper table setting and then take an Instagram-worthy photo of the beautiful tablescape. Janelle with Lavenders Flowers shared her inappropriate feelings about flowers and taught attendees how to make a boutonniere on the fly!

The day ends with a beautiful dinner thank you dinner and all the warm and fuzzies one could ask for. The goal at the end of the two-day wedding planner workshop is for the students to feel a part of the Planner Life Community and walk away with tangible tools. Knowing that whatever next step they are taking they have support, resources, and guidance to help them on their journey to becoming a successful wedding planner!

LVL Academy : Fall Wedding Planner Workshop Day 1

Day 1 of LVL Academy Wedding Planner Workshop was filled with the buzz of anticipation. We welcomed students from all over to include; Hawaii, Northern California, New York, and Denver and had our biggest class to yet!

We always start out the first day with a coffee side chat (and donuts) with the Partners of LVL Weddings & Events, Lindsay Ferguson and Heather Hoesch. This is one of our favorite parts of the day because we get to know each student and find out their WHY? Each has a different story and journey of how they found their passion for weddings and they are all truly inspirational! The one common theme is their desire to never stop learning and to take their passion to the next level.

Throughout the day, the students also heard from top wedding professionals in the industry to gain their perspective on weddings and more importantly, what they expect from a professional wedding planner. We had the privilege to welcome Troy and Aimee Grover Photography, Melina Glavas, Sr. Event Sales Manager of The Little Nell, and Meg Walker, Owner of Made by Meg Catering.

We ended the night with a delicious meal from The Lime Truck and topped it off with a cake cutting demo and some tasty desserts from Beverly’s Best.
