We are happy to introduce our new associate, Jennifer Kabahit (Jenn), will be joining our team for this upcoming year! Jenn will be responsible on assisting client and I during the wedding planning and as well, on the wedding day. She will also be the co-writer for the "Inspired Wednesday" blog post to share new ideas, trend, and more about things you will need to know when planning weddings. Actually, our "Inspired Wednesday" on January 12 was written by her. =)

I'm excited to have her join, and I'm sure she will be a great and professional assistant not only to our team, but also to brides and grooms. Want to know more about Jenn, here is a little bio of her...

"After earning my B.S. in Business Administration, I began my professional work history as a Human Resource Specialist, focused on recruiting and employee relations at a Biotech company in the Bay Area. During the time with this company, I not only handled the recruiting responsibilities, but I also managed the corporate functions such as the Annual Board of Directors meetings, the annual Holiday Party, the Winter Ski trip, and monthly team building events. I thrive on details, organization, and design and nothing gives me more satisfaction than seeing an event from start to finish. It was here where I realized my passion and strength in event planning and now, I've decided to pursue this dream with Amy's Wedding and Events. With my patient and easygoing demeanor, and my flair for design and classic beauty, my goal is to assist in making a dream wedding become reality. With two young boys and a very supportive husband, I can’t wait to see where this new road in event planning will take me."

Inspired Wednesday

I recently received a wedding website from my friend who will be getting married this coming July in London. Congratulations to her first of all!! When I look at the domain name, I was surprise that it is made out from Google! I know with Google, you can do a lot of things like calls, different kinds of documents, events...etc. But I didn't know that you can now create your website from Google. So for today, Inspired Wednesday, let's be a little bit of IT. =)

Often time I get clients come to me and say, where and how I can build my own wedding website? For sure, there are a lot of different wedding sites where they included an option for you to build your own website, for example, the Knot, Project Wedding or WeddingWire. However, if you have a gmail account, I think this can be an alternative to create your own personal wedding website by just a few clicks from your email account. With that, it will save you time, and you can actually organize everything from one account. Plus they have pre-created templates that you can choose from. I think it will just make it easier if you are thinking of building your own wedding website. For more information, visit Google Sites.

Or here...take a look at how you can create your own website

Have fun creating your wedding website! =)

Inspired Wednesday

As we are approaching the middle of January and going to February, there is another big day coming up that I think a lot of couples need to be prepared especially for the guys! If you are still shopping for gifts or flower bouquets, we have some tips for you when choosing the right number of flowers inside the bouquet and make it meaningful. (Of course, I think it is important for those to know if you are thinking of proposing on this special day!) Take a look at the list below to see different number of flower(s) you give would mean.

1 - Love at the first sight. The single rose, whatever its color, depicts utmost devotion to a single person. "All my deepest affections are concentrated in you"

Inspired Wednesday

To continue with our Wednesday blog post series, with the New Year, we are going to do Inspired Wednesday to fresh up in the middle of the week and look at something inspired, colorful, fun, and name it.

And this week, we would like to share some party ideas for the New Year! Yes... I know we past all the holidays and celebration time, BUT, we can keep the spirit and plan for the next one, right? =)

A damask themed party will always be a classic. No matter the occasion, whether it’s to ring in the New Year, celebrate a wedding or even the coming of a new baby, the damask theme is so versatile. It can be played up so elegantly; yet can also be very playful when you throw in a little bit of color.

A fun New Year’s Eve dessert table – the purple really pops against the black and white and adds a lot of flair and fun to this New Year’s celebration.

Believe it or not but damask can take you anywhere…even to this fun, rockstar wedding.

Stay Tuned for more inspired ideas for next week.
