Start is with your ceremony time then you will work backwards.
Once you have worked your way from Ceremony start time back to the time you first get up, then you go back to your ceremony time and work forward to the end of the night when vendors have to be out by.
Be sure to add all special events such as your grand entrance (after ceremony, if you’re having one, any toasts, first dance and family dances, cake cutting or dessert service, etc.
After all special events are noted, go back to add in finer detail.
Transportation times and “buffer times” are to be noted and accounted for.

From Instagram to Hashtag following to Pinterest, wedding planning can appear more complicated (and expensive) than ever before. So many ideas, so many people posting their “pinterest-worthy” I do’s, it’s no wonder we have created a perceived idea that weddings on Instagram are perfect and must be super expensive.
When it comes to wedding decor, the ideas and the amount of money it actually takes to pull off a insta and pinterest-worthy even can feel overwhelming and almost unattainable…
The words “Let’s elope!” evoke excitement and visions of throwing caution to the wind, grabbing your partner’s hand, and riding off into the sunset together…Is it that easy? Well, kinda…let’s break it down, here are a few things you might not have thought of or considered first.

We first met Andrea via phone call as she drove from Seattle to Portland for a holiday to see family. That first phone call was filled with so many laughs and jokes, we knew it was going to be a great fit. Yet to have met Moni, we had heard that he had lots of friends and LOVED to party!
All of the meetings leading up to the wedding day were just with Andrea as Moni was very busy at work and unable to attend. Andrea explained that they wanted their own version of Twilight with a timeless and classic feel.
Alright friends, let me set it straight and talk about the differences between venue managers and actual wedding planners.
As a seasoned event producer who has coordinated, planned, produced and designed hundreds of weddings and events I can easily say one of my biggest pet peeves (and every planner I know) in the event/wedding industry is when a venue sells their in-house coordinator/manager as an actual wedding planner.
Over the years I’ve learned that unless you’re in the wedding industry, the differences between the two aren’t commonly known…
