Hello Spring!

Happy Spring! The beginning of Spring also marks the Persian new year.  Happy New Year to all my friends and family! Not only did we just enter the new season of Spring, but it is also the beginning of a new wedding season.  I'm sure all of us wedding professionals have enjoyed the little break, but I am very excited for the new season to start.  I have been meeting with fun couples and amazing wedding vendors the past couple months which gets me very excited for my weddings to start.  My clients are all so sweet and working with them to plan their special day has truly been a blessing.  I also have the privilege of working a few weddings with Nicole Lisanne this year which will be a lot of fun. I will be updating this blog with photos and details about my weddings this year so be sure to check back often.  I still have dates available for end of Summer and Fall 2011 so if you need help with your wedding plans or know someone that does let me know :). Take care.

For Japan With Love

The women at Utterly Engaged & Ever Ours came together and started For Japan With Love.  All the donations will be going to Shelter Box which provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies to those who need it most. Let's come together and support the people of Japan in their time of need.
