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.
While Eloping has fewer moving parts than a large wedding there are still some planning that needs to be done first. Especially if you are going to “Adventure Elope” -which is all the rage, right now.
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…
You’re probably experiencing a slough of emotions, especially if you’re planning an event during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your event producers and creative partners are right there with you, not only are we concerned about the future of our small business but we are trying our hardest to keep an optimistic outlook for our clients and our communities. Like the Hospitality and Tourism industries our Event Industry is hit just as hard, if not harder. While you may have a lot of stress regarding the reschedule of your event …
This week we got the news we were praying we would never get…The CDC mandate of event postponing to slow the spread of COVID-19 and will suspend all events on our docket for at least the next 8 weeks (until May 16).
If your event is within this time our hearts and support are with you. We can’t even imagine what stress and sadness this brings to you and your families during this time. Wish we could give you a big hug and say it was all a bad dream…
