Article on Martha Stewart Weddings
appy Friday! I saw this article
this morning, and had to share it, since it lists the #1 regret we always hear from clients, and that was not having a videographer. This also includes the clients that had a friend that had a video camera at the wedding, it never captures everything, since they are also a guest, so it is definitely something to consider if you feel it will be important to you in the future.
From a personal stance, I can truly say that we LOVE our wedding photos, and they are incredible, but I wouldn't be okay if we didn't have the film of that day. It captured so much, and being able to watch it with our 2.5 year old son a few weeks ago as we celebrated our 4th anniversary was priceless.

There are other things that this article points out that these brides wish they had done differently, and I can say that having a planner/coordinator is one we don't often hear from our own clients, since they hired us, but from friends that didn't think it was necessary. From the advice and guidance before the wedding down to every detail being executed on the wedding day, planners provide a high level of ease to brides knowing their day is in the right hands.
Enjoy the weekend,

Flood Mansion | May 30
his time of year means that we have just a little downtime to actually share some of the amazing weddings we produced this past year, and we're so happy to share this one from the Flood Mansion in May. Kathryn & Roberto were incredible clients to work with, they wanted a pretty wedding, navy and white, and they selected a perfect vendor team to execute their wedding flawlessly. I do many Flood Mansion weddings, and they are all very different, and this one was able to bring somewhat of an outside feeling indoors with the white wood crossback chairs and olive branch garlands.

Congrats to this beautiful couple, and all of our 2015 newlyweds! Wishing you nothing but love and happiness in your new lives together.
ords cannot express how happy I have been with Minted.com
on both a business level and a personal level. For business, we use them repeatedly for customers that need day-of printed materials, invitations, save the dates, etc. The feature that everyone loves is the quick turnaround time, especially when those escort card deadlines come along.
Also, we use them year after year for our holiday cards, and with their free recipient addressing, it makes sending out holiday cards a breeze. They look professional and creative all at the same time. In fact, most of the companies on our list will be receiving their cards on Monday!
Personally, I use them for nearly every invite I ever send out, and definitely every year for our holiday card. This year I was able to order our cards early enough that they actually already arrived and are ready to ship out today to our friends and family across the country. Having them pre-addressed for me makes all the difference, as that used to take me 2-3 days to complete!
They are having a 20% off sale until Sunday 11/29 at 11:59pm PST. Use code BF2015 for 20% off anything over $150, and 15% off under $150.
