THE WAIT IS OVER! Ultimate Cocktail Hour: The Photo Shoot!

14 Jul

_MG_9989Have I told you lately that I LOVE my job? It is the thing that fills me with joy and makes me feel like I am accomplishing something great in my life. I help couples start their life together with a happy memory! It’s a bonus when I get to share my passion with the readers of a beautiful magazine.

One of the aspects of the wedding day that I enjoy planning for is the cocktail hour. It’s that awkward hour between the ceremony and the reception where your guests are left to wait. It’s also an opportunity to do something fun and different!

_MG_0151SMI was honored to be able to share my planning tips for an AWESOME cocktail hour with the readers of the newly released issue of TriadWedding’s Magazine. And just for the fun if of it, I planned a photo shoot to go along with the article to show some of the tips.

I must say that the photos turned out GORGEOUS, thanks to all of the brilliant vendors that helped contribute to this shoot. It was the most fun 8 hours I have ever had and I know it’s because it wasn’t work – it’s what my passion is.

Thank you to all of the fun vendors for their time, talents and attitude… it was such a blast! Seriously- if you want some of the best of the best, you have to check out these vendors, they are STELLAR!
