What is the Difference Between a Venue Coordinator and an Outside Wedding Coordinator

The age-old question is always, what is the difference between the venue coordinator and the outside wedding planner?  The Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) invited Zhay Robles/Catering Manager at 1805 on the Boulevard and Caitlin Lawler/Wedding Planner/Owner of Plan It Event Design and Management to answer those questions.  Mark Kingsdorf Master Bridal Consultant and Co Director for ABC facilitated the discussion.

 The Standard for Wedding Excellence……………………………

Valentine’s Day Countdown Day 9…….Love at First Sight? Do you believe in it?

Love will find its way to you.  Sometimes you search for love in all the wrong places and you get frustrated looking for love.  You find someone and the relationship struggles because love did not find its way yet to you.  Love is easy but not easy.  If in the dating relationship it is a struggle, then is it love or just someone to pass time with.  Does everyone have love at first sight?  Not really because some folks have to spend a lot of time together to see if they are a good fit.  Some people do find love at first sight and when they do….wow …bam…watch out…the room is electrified and their love spills on everyone around them.

That is Migdalia and Edwin’s story…

Both Migdalia and Edwin hoped to find true love and prayed for a special soul mate for several years and on this one special day in the month of love, February, it finally happened! We had to share their story since they fell in love in February!

One evening while planning their wedding, Migdalia shared their engagement story.  Edwin  just laughed and smiled  looking at her like a school kid in love…gotta love it… Ed (as Migdalia calls him)  knew that he was going to propose to Mig  (as he kindly calls her), so he spoke to her sister and her daughter to just let them know that he wanted to propose, but did not say when.  He had a special day planned to ask her.  He had bought some dessert to bring for dinner and some other things,  Mig being her helpful self, wanted to help bring stuff in.  She went in the trunk of the car and saw a little bag from a jewelry store.  When Mig saw the little bag she turned to Ed and  said, what’s this?  Poor Ed, he turned all sorts of colors and nervous and just gave it to her and said can you pretend that I did not give it to you yet.  He wanted to ask her after dinner in front of everyone, but Mig says she was so nervous herself that she came in to the house and just told everyone.

Whenever you are around this happy-go-lucky couple, you can feel the energy of love between them as they look into each other’s eyes.  Many blessings are desired for this couple as they await the big wedding day coming soon!!

Love at Christmas Time

Merry Christmas to all.  We hope that everyone had a wonderful time with their friends and families! Today’s blog is about Ursula and Robert, a couple in love.  Ursula and Robert met in their complex at the gym.  Each time they were out and about their complex, they kept bumping into each other and it was love at first sight! They started dating and the rest is history!!! Robert being the romantic that he is got down on one knee and proposed to Ursula!

Proposal

The happy couple had great plans to have a large wedding, but instead decided that they would have a more intimate and romantic wedding and focus on their new home and their new baby on the way.  Although some folks could not attend this week day ceremony,  the intimacy of the wedding size, was what they both wanted.

Ursula dreamed of a wedding in the park, not an easy task when it’s a park and there is not a true back up for rain.  But the planning went on at Kissimmee Lake Front.  Let’s watch as this day unfolds.

The wedding day arrived!! It was a hot Friday Morning in October. Upper 80’s, sunny but humid and hot! Southern Elegance Limousine started the morning off with picking up our beautiful Bride Ursula at her home to bring her to the ceremony.  The groom Robert and his  best man arrived first.

Ursula and Robert thought that they would not get a first dance in, but thanks to some planning with Roque Productions, he was able to play  “All of Me” and they got that first dance in with Treasured Moments Videography capturing the emotion live of this happy couple in love, surprised that they can share a first dance after their ceremony!

Ursula and Robert’s family planned a picnic luncheon in the park for the happy couple but one of the things that Ursula and Robert would miss on was their first cake cutting and toast.  We could not let that happen, so a cake from Publix  came to the rescue as  Michael Anthony Photography captured this sweet and fun moment.

Let Lips Linger This Holiday Season

Day 3 of Christmas Countdown:

Let’s face it, stress is part of our daily lives.  We are stressed about emotional, intellectual or physical demands of our time on a daily basis.  Managing stress is the key to having good health and a happier more fulfilling life.  At times there are things we cannot change, control or avoid.  But if we can practice relaxation techniques to help us.

One study shows that couples that kiss often, are eight times less likely to feel stressed or depressed.  So meet under the mistletoe as often as you can for some therapy! Don’t worry if you don’t have mistletoe, see these couples below they make it happen!

Happy Thanksgiving!! Today’s blog is a special one of thanking God for Love at First Site!

Both Migdalia and Edwin hoped to find true love and prayed for a special soul mate for several years and on this one special day in the month of love, February, it finally happened!

As we are all sitting talking about the wedding plans, Migdalia shares their engagement story as Edwin laughs and looks at her like a school kid in love…gotta love it… Ed (as Migdalia calls him)  knew that he was going to propose to Mig  (as he kindly calls her), so he spoke to her sister and her daughter to just let them know that he wanted to propose, but did not say when.  He had a special day planned to ask her.  He had bought some dessert to bring for dinner and some other things,  Mig being her helpful self, wanted to help bring stuff in.  She went in the trunk of the car and saw a little bag from a jewelry store.  When Mig saw the little bag she turned to Ed and  said, what’s this?  Poor Ed, he turned all sorts of colors and nervous and just gave it to her and said can you pretend that I did not give it to you yet.  He wanted to ask her after dinner in front of everyone, but Mig says she was so nervous herself that she came in to the house and just told everyone.

Stay tuned for the big date when this fun-loving couple will tie the knot on the anniversary of their engagement! How cool is that !

Vikki and Chip are getting married on 12/13/14!  Each century contains twelve such sequential number calendar dates, the first being 01-02-03 and the last one, 12-13-14. So, December 13, 2014 will be the last such sequential calendar date in the 21st century!

This happy pair, met on eharmony and for their first date Vikki shares that she wanted everything to be perfect and ended up being 2 hours late and with her brother as a chaperone just to be safe!  But Chip waited for her  and enjoyed their bowling night.on June 12, 2012.  What is quite interesting is that these two grew up in the same town and their families were friends before they were even born. These two were destined from the start!

Vikki is in graduate school for Pharmacy and Chip is a Computer Science Graduate….busy busy lives these two have…but not too busy to hang out a few hours with Michael Anthony Photography and have some fun!

The Wedding of Lorena and Geoffrey

On a beautiful clear blue sky day in March Lorena and Geoffrey were married at the Church of Latter Day Saints in Windermere.  They started their day at the church with a traditional Sealing Ceremony and later the Bride and Groom changed into their formal wedding gown and suit for a family dinner.

The bride and groom wanted to have their close family celebrating this special day with them after the Sealing Ceremony.  The Sealing Ceremony is an ordinance (ritual) performed in Latter Day Saints temples by a person holding the sealing authority.[1] The purpose of this ordinance is to seal familial relationships, making possible the existence of family relationships throughout eternity.[2] LDS teachings place great importance on the specific authority required to perform these sealings.

The Winter Wedding Vow Renewal of Antonia and Julio

It is not often that a planner gets to plan a special event like the 50th Wedding Anniversary of their parents!  Rosie Moore, Master Wedding Planner for 27 Miracles had just that opportunity with the assistance on the day of from fellow planners Christine Pabelico and her assistants Tess, Shannon and Kim!

The date December 21, 1963, it was a cold and snowy day for the first day of winter.  They thought that they would not be able to have their wedding, but people still made it to the church and the wedding.

31 21Through the years they celebrated many years of good memories.  Watch the video of their life together.

As the they approached their 50th wedding anniversary the wedding vow renewal planning started about a year before the big date!

They started with  a fun-filled engagement session:

135 131 132 133 134But on December 21, 2013 the first day of winter in Florida brought us 85 Degrees! Wow !

The day started with the photography of Michael Anthony Photography capturing the pre ceremony pictures that included the bride getting ready and her bouquet.

The Beautiful bouquets were made by RJ Glamour and Innovation for the Diva!  That is what Juan Carlos, owner and designer,  called Antonia because he was ever so proud to do an event of such honor as someone’s 50th wedding vow renewal for someone who he knew through the wedding industry.

No wedding would be complete without comfortable shoes made for a princess! Angela Nuran provided just that with her shoes and the buckle even matches the pendant on the bouquet, what a coincidence!

When it came time to selecting her wedding gown, of course what they made back 50 years ago is not sold in this day and age, unless it is custom-made.  But her idea of her dress was that of Cinderella because that is what she always said her life was like until Julio, her Prince Charming, swept her off her feet!Antonia and Julio 5oth Wedding Annivesrsary 013

It’s time to get ready……

And the bride is ready…..Antonia and Julio 5oth Wedding Annivesrsary 315Antonia and Julio 5oth Wedding Annivesrsary 321

It was quite an honor to have three generations in one room celebrating this special day. Antonia was joined by her daughter Rosie, grand-daughter Kayla and Grandson Kaleb.Antonia and Julio 5oth Wedding Annivesrsary 325 Antonia and Julio 5oth Wedding Annivesrsary 327Antonia and Julio 5oth Wedding Annivesrsary 331 Antonia and Julio 5oth Wedding Annivesrsary 336

The flower girl in the picture has been babysat by Antonia since birth; so to have her on this day was going to be part of the memories to share..

Now Julio, had been through quite a bit….back in 2006 (3 months before his daughter Rosie Married Marcus) he had a series of strokes with a major one that set him back in the hospital.  But through prayers, faith and the help of the staff and family he regained his ability to get his life back.

Antonia and Julio 5oth Wedding Annivesrsary 349

He started his day with son in law Marcus, and grandson Christopher.  Antonia and Julio 5oth Wedding Annivesrsary 346
Now Julio is  retired from the army and what better way to honor him than having the honor guard perform for him.  The honor guard walked in to Proud To Be An American as they set their flags.  Then honored Julio with a saber ceremony.

Okay the big moment has arrived, Julio has not seen Antonia since dinner the night before.  He was kind of nervous as he did not know what was happening next.

Who would have thought that this 1lb 10 oz preemie baby boy would be walking down the aisle at his grandma’s wedding vow renewal 4 yrs later…..

You have to love the shots that photographers take and capture moments like this, Kaleb, the ring bearer intently paying attention to what is happening.

Christopher sang the Lord’s Prayer during the ceremony, bringing emotion to all that were present.

Now everyone knows that Marcus does not speak Spanish.  For the wedding ceremony with some coaching from Oscar of Sensational Ceremonies, he recited a few verses from First Corinthians 13 much to Antonia and Julio’s surprise.  They were touched by the heartfelt gesture.

It was a little to windy for the unity candle to be lit, but it did not stop them from trying with the Ave Maria playing in the background by Christine MacPhail the Harpist. .

And they are husband and wife, what the  Lord has joined together let no man separate…
