we are looking for a summer intern!

Hello lovelies!

We are a looking for a few good people to join our team this summer. Unlike the Army, we will banter about flowers, colors, budgets, Bravo TV shows, clients, wedding etiquette and more! We also produce corporate events … so you have the opportunity to meet local business owners and the movers and shakers of our local area.

If you are a college student in the PR, hospitality, or similar programs, this would be great for you!

Please click here for more details.

We are looking at filling this position immediately, and may offer more than one depending on the quality of applicants.

One more thing, pre-planning work is done during the week but the majority of our events are on weekends. Don’t worry, you won’t be scheduled every weekend, but only the committed should apply.

follow us behind the scenes …

We have a special wedding this weekend. Okay all our weddings are special, but hear me out and I’m sure you will agree.

Our lovely bride, Kelly, contacted us over a year ago to help plan their wedding day in her Dad’s beautiful backyard in Newburgh, Indiana. A really cool couple, they wanted something different, fun and quirky. Most of all, an intimate celebration with their closest friends and family.

What we couldn’t predict during this planning year:

  • A pleasant surprise, the birth of their beautiful little boy. Planning a wedding WITH baby hormones can be quite a ride.
  • In March, that ugly cancer creature creeped into our lives, and Kelly was diagnosed with breast cancer. Two chemo treatments so far before the wedding. Can we bring back the baby hormones, please? She’s a rockstar with a heart of gold and a spirit to match. And a sense of humor that will make you belly laugh.
  • Now, her beautiful outdoor wedding is being threatened by Mother Nature … RAIN. WIND.

So if you are so interested we’ll be adding photos to Instagram, Twitter and company Facebook. Follow along, starting today … it’s going to be entertaining.

And please say a prayer for no rain at least from 5 – 8pm. We aren’t greedy.

social media and your wedding…

*tweet* *tweet*   #instagram   FB status update: Married!

Social media is super fun, although we use it for both fun AND business. And now for your wedding!

Instagram (and just in case you don’t know what this is) it’s a free social media application you can download on your smart phone and now can access through your web browser. It’s Facebook, for photographer enthusiasts. You don’t have to take the best photos in the world because of their oh-so-awesome filters. Seriously. I’m gorgeous after I filter myself out in Instagram. Side note: I’m taking a photo a day to post for 2013. You can follow me for a glimpse of the behind the scenes (real and personal).

If you want to include your guests in your wedding memories then perhaps post a sign to let them in on the social media fun? You’ll need a #hashtag so you can find everyone’s photos after the fact.

Here’s one idea, and I love it was located in the ceremony program.

Also, it’s important to promote your Instagram idea in other locations. Like this…

One of the things that we love to do is grab a quick photo of the bride and her Dad seconds before they walk down the aisle. There is Amanda above with her Dad (he’s a lot taller than her, sorry his head is cut off).

Check out my thoughts on social media in general, article is inside the News4U as I grace the cover. Thank you so much for the opportunity! Loads of fun!
