Happy Saint Patrick’s Day.
We are so lucky to be sharing part two of this beautiful Carmel Valley Wedding. From the stunning dress to the ceremony site that was perfectly enhanced with natural floral and fauna, the locally grown dahlias, the little details like the Groom making every table runner out of wood and branding them with the couple’s initials, the One Hope Wine that were given to the guests, this wedding was spectacular and really reflected both the Bride and Groom’s personalities.
Our wonderful couple Shelby and Josh are so lucky to have found each other and we enjoyed every moment of planning their special day!

Today we are excited to share the daytime portion of day 3 at the Inspire Smart Success Riviera Maya 2014. Day three starts with intimate breakout sessions with the speakers, followed by an amazing seafood lunch at La Playa complete with boozy popsicles! Archive Rentals, who sponsored some of our beautiful vintage furnishings passed out inspirational charms to the attendees as they basked in the sunshine. Huge shout out to Planner 1 Events who sponsored and set up most of the rentals. Their crew rocks!!!

Sometimes as a planner you can really fall in love with your clients and they feel like good friends or even family by the time the wedding comes around.
This is what happened for me with our wonderful Grooms, Frank and Frank and their sweet baby girl.
We had a really wonderful time planning this wedding from finding the guys their perfect venue to the final little details of shopping for succulents and orchids to use for centerpieces and favors! The Grooms were really hands on in the planning with one of them designing the website and the other designing the stationary! We were always joking that they should be planners themselves.
Love is Love and we were so honored to be a part of this beautiful union between two of the sweetest men with the biggest hearts.

Day two- The Ballroom set up was one of our favorite things about this event. Now Sapphire was able to take our designs and execute the stage and amazing lighting fixture. The speakers- The sweet and oh so talented Amy Atlas, the charming Sarah Haywood, the inspirational Diann Valentine, Photographer Susan Stripling, our friend the always life of the party Youngsong Martin, Kristen Ott Palladino of Equally Wed, the Indian Wedding Goddess Nikki Khan, Mike Colon known to us by his Mexican nickname Tiburon, Our New York favorite Shawn Rabideau, the darling Sarah Please, the sweetest cake maker Chef Dana Herbert, and SEO wizard Chris Horton. After an amazing lunch hosted by Honeybook and an all yellow dessert break (no added preasure that the one and only Amy Atlas was going to see it!), we finished the day with an Dia Dos Muertos themed offsite dinner at an amazing private beach by Diamant Events.

We just love our friendship with Stacie and the rest of the epic Inspire Smart Success team. Today we are sharing with you the opening day of the event which took place in Riviera Maya at Now Sapphire this past November. Photos by Robyn Photography

I pinned this wonderful map of Big Sur a few months ago and I was blow away by the amount of pins it’s gotten. This is one of the Best Maps of Big Sur (proper) in the fact that it explains where landmarks like the Big Sur Bakery, The Henry Miller Library and Ventana are located. It’s very helpful especially if you are planning a Big Sur wedding to include something like this for your guests to understand the area.
