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


When Taryn and Zac were first interviewing me as a potential wedding planner, they told me that they were seriously thinking about doing the finale dance from Dirty Dancing as their first dance. Ummm, hello? So nice to meet you, new clients! They were planning a Sunday day wedding at Temescal Gateway Park in Pacific Palisades and they wanted a fun, picnic, family oriented reception. With a BBQ, lawn games, homemade cakes and pies, and some serious dancing. Lots and lots of dancing. This was my first daytime wedding and so I was a bit skeptical of just how much guests would dance on a Sunday afternoon with just beer, wine, and BBQ in them. Boy, was I shown how it was done! Aside from their completely fabulous first dance (yes, complete with the lift and everything!) those two boogied like I’ve never seen a bride and groom boogie before.

The day was warm and lovely, just like the two of them. Just look at the gorgeous photos taken by the sweet Sara of  onelove photography that captures it all! Many more on her blog, and also featured this week on the blog Love and Lavender,

The team who made it happen:
Amber Events – Wedding Coordination
Michael Barclay – Rabbi
Lucille’s BBQ – catering
One Love – Photography 
Omar Garcia – DJ
Beauty by Grace – Bridal Hair
Brittany Kuhl – Bride’s makeup 
Burbank Party Rentals – rentals 

And a huge HUGE thank you to my assistants and interns that day: Sacha, Nira, Tanny, and Brittany!
