Champagne Brunch | Rockford Illinois Wedding

Cassie contacted me well over a year before her wedding for planning assistance.  We met many times to make her vision come to life.  She wanted a Sunday brunch which I loved because it was out of the norm.  It was a great idea!  Her wish was to provide a setting for family and friends that included their children and was still formal but yet fun and relaxing.  I think that we did just that!

Cassie and Nick had been together for a long time and have 3 beautiful children together.  It was so fun to get to know her as a person and as a mother.   Watching her with her children was something that I as a planner will always cherish.  She is such a patient and caring person.   As a couple she and Nick are a perfect match.  Their extended family was such a delight!

Below are the images that were captured from their wedding day.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

An Evening with TLC's Say Yes to the Dress Star Randy Fenoli

Let me begin this by saying that I have these big dreams and goals that sometime consume my thoughts and this was no exception.  Thinking of all the items that I wanted to accomplish within my career this was the next item on my list.  Get an A list wedding expert to come to the Rockford Area.  And.... who doesn't love the TV show Say Yes to the Dress?  So naturally it was Randy Fenoli.  I knew that I had my work cut out for me and met with Giovanni's to discuss the opportunity with them.  They were graciously willing to partner and so preparations for An Evening with Randy Fenoli began. We met with several companies that were sponsors for the evening.  Those included: DC Estate Winery, SVL Productions, Death's Door Spirits and Vera's House of Bridals.

We enlisted a group of vendors for their support and as you will see by the photos provided below they did not disappoint.  Every individual business we talked with was willing to participate in this evening.  They are listed at the bottom.  Michelle Marcomb with B103 and Whitney Martin with WIFR served as our emcees for the night.

Randy gave a fabulous motivational speech with centered on his 3 E's ~ "Empower, Educate and Elevate".  He had the room immersed in laughter for most of his time with us and we enjoyed his gracious hospitality of meeting each guest that attended that evening. 

I can say that in my short time with Randy he is one of the most genuine individuals I have met in my career.  His knowledge of the wedding industry is beneficial to all and his message is that you are beautiful inside and out no matter who you are. 

Let's just say that after this, I have some more ideas definitely in the works!
