Wedding planner, cool aunt of little Texans, lover of all things love, and obsessed with espresso.


The wedding rehearsal on June 13 was foggy, misty, and chilly, just like the previous two weeks of June had been. The icky “June Gloom” was to blame. But Sunday, June 14 dawned sunny and warm, with fluffy puffy clouds in the sky. A perfect day for a wedding!

Nick and Emily live here in Los Angeles, but many of their family and friends came in from out of state for the weekend. Emily’s lovely mother, Sara (who lives in Kansas City), and I did a majority of the planning via phone, email, and two powwow weekends of back to back meetings. Nick and Emily are a busy, busy couple. He is a doctorate student at USC and she just finished her doctorate in clinical psychology. Very smart people. And wonderful, kind, and deeply in love.

The ceremony was held at the gazebo at the Westlake Village Inn. Rabbi Brett Krichiver officiated a beautiful and touching Jewish ceremony, and Emily walked down the aisle to a song that Nick specifically chose for her:

“Le Cygne” by Saint-Saëns played by a quartet with Blue Skies Events. Cocktail hour was held on the terrace of the Provence room. The ceremony and reception colors were a mix of whites, celery green, and pale aqua. The flowers, designed by Val Eule of Just Flowers, were a summery airy mix of white and green Hydrangea, Roses, Lilies, Lisianthus, Freesia, Dendrobiums, Tulips and Orchids. Alternating high and low arrangements looked lovely against the aqua linens and beneath the sparkling chandeliers.

The cake was baked from scratch and decorated by Joeleen Jaquez of A Sweet Design. The guests enjoyed a dual entree dinner with fun touches to the reception such as a Sundae Bar and a Cappuccino Bar. DJ Nahchey of Dash Entertainment turned the evening into a party and guests had a ball.

The entire day was full of handmade details made by Emily’s mom Sara. Unique fan programs, escort cards, table numbers, favors and adorable petal cones were such great touches made with love.

Not only did the day flow smoothly with a happy couple enjoying their family and friends, I had a wonderful time. Sara actually thanked me in her welcome toast and told me that she could not have done it without me! Such an unexpected gift!

Videography was done by Isabel Gonzalez Videography and Images were captured by the talented Veronica Puleo of Verofoto. A huge thank you to my assistants Krista and Dani–as usual, I could not have done it without you!
