Robert and Diana!

29790118

What a treat to help friends plan the day of their dreams!  A little Background:  I first met Bob years ago when he was my husband’s boss.  Bob lived in New Jersey and would travel here frequently for work.  About 3 years ago, he moved to Canton, Ohio and although my husband had moved on to another company by then, we remained in touch.  Bob had a girlfriend, who also lived in New Jersey…Diana!  Diana is a bundle of energy and a wealth of knowledge.  We became fast friends!  Diana moved to Canton and the wedding planning began!

Bob and Diana wanted a small, intimate wedding for their IMMEDIATE Family only!  So that is exactly what they got!  The guestlist consisted of their children and dates, and a few very close family members – 15 people in all!  We planned an intimate wedding ceremony in their living room, followed by a wine tasting cocktail hour. 

The guests then moved into a completely transformed family room for a six course meal prepared by Chef Joe Pileggi.  On the menu was a shrimp Amuse, a ravioli Appetizer, Insalata Caprese, Intermezzo Sorbet, chicken and filet entree, and of course wedding cake! 

After dinner, the party continued with a casino night! 

Everyone had a wonderful time and most importantly, Bob and Diana radiated with happiness! 

Because Bob and Diana were friends of mine, I offered to do some things that I normally don’t get my hands into – flower arrangement and photography!  I had a great time taking pictures for them…but I have a whole new respect for the photographers that I hire…that is pressure!  I think I captured some good shots though…here are a couple!

Diana and her daughter Eliza...must get those eyelashes dry!

My Wedding

Today is my 8th Wedding Anniversary!  April 21, 2001!

At the time, I was planning events in Northeast Ohio, but not specifically weddings.  I loved weddings, as I already posted previously, so planning my own was a dream.  Of course, if I had to do it again, I would make a lot of changes – especially since I am a wedding coordinator now!  I don’t necessarily think that I would change anything at the actual ceremony – I believed then and still do now, that the ceremony is the most important part of the day.  I loved my wedding ceremony:

– wonderful homily from my high school principal, Father Nuzzi

– unbelievable flowers – it was the Saturday after Easter so I had the advantage of having all of the Easter Flowers and we didn’t spend a penny!  I highly encourage brides to pick that weekend each year!

– a choir – yes, I had the entire choir at my church, St. Joseph’s in Canton, sing.  They were phenomenal!

The reception was nice, but I would change a lot if I did it again – number one thing I would add, Lighting!  What a difference lighting makes!

Anyway, Happy Anniversary Rich…thank you for encouraging me to pursue my passion and for supporting me in my dreams!

How it all began!

So, I have a blog!  I have been urged to start a blog for quite some time now…and it sounded like fun….but what in the world would I write about…and more importantly, who in the world would read it!  But after much prodding, here it is!

I plan on writing about all things EVENTFUL….since that is what I love.  So I will write about my weddings and events, information and tips about events, and I will occasionally just write about “events” of my life. 

For my first blog, I think I will tell you how it all began – my planning weddings that is.  It probably started when I was about 7 years old!  I would attend family weddings and take along a journal – and I would proceed to write things about the wedding that I loved, things that I didn’t love, save the programs, etc…  My sisters thought I was crazy, but here I am today!  After graduating with a teaching degree and giving teaching the good ole try, I realized planning events was were my true love was.  So after doing two unpaid internships with the Cleveland Lumberjacks and the Akron Aeros, I landed a job at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in their events department.  I moved to Glenmoor Country Club as their wedding coordinator in 2003 and started my own business at the end of 2004!  The rest as they say….!

I love what I do, I hope it shows!
