My favorite part of the wedding is helping to set and decorate the tables for the guests. A big part of that is the centerpiece for the tables. There are so many wonderful and fun options out there. Some go over the top and some keep it simple. Some love flowers, some greenery, some candles, and some go other ways. Its a fun way for a couple to express their interests or tie the overall style of the wedding together. Today I w...

When it comes to the big day, the focus tends to be on the more feminine side. The dresses, the shoes, the bouquets the ladies will carry, etc. However we can't forget about the men who are getting married or partaking in the bridal entourage. I've seen a lot through the years wear things from formal tuxedo's, to suits, to even jeans and flannel shirts. The men find a way to creates showcase their personalities as well. One de...

I recently posted on social media that 2020 would be my last year owning and running my own wedding and event planning company. While more will come later about this decision, I thought this year would be a great time to look back over the almost 100 weddings I have helped to coordinate. Throughout the year, I will be featuring some of my favorite and memorable things I have seen at weddings.  I figured I would start with the...

Hard to believe that 2019 is coming down and another year of weddings is in the books. Every wedding is special in its own way and it can be hard to narrow down the years favorite moments. I tried to keep to 12 in the theme of 12 days of Christmas, but ended up with a couple more. In no particular order; here is my list of what stuck out to me in 2019.

Rocking the Dress

Every bride should feel like a million bucks in their weddi...

This time of year is what many of us in the wedding industry call engagement season. It was a term coined in the US since a lot of couple's tend to get engaged starting around Thanksgiving, through the Christmas and New Year's holidays, and finally ending on Valentine's Day.  What that means is newly engaged couple's are starting to plan their weddings. As a planner, this time of year I am coming across couple's who are lookin...

If you have followed anything wedding the past few years, chances are that you have stumbled across a styled shoot. A styled shoot is where a team of wedding vendors come together and flex some of their creative muscles. A lot of times they are done as a marketing tool to showcase the vendors work.  I look at it as a a fun chance to play with a concept and show prospective clients ideas.  Usually they are set up as a small wed...

October of 2017 marked a milestone for H&K Weddings and Events. It was my last official wedding with Kacy as a partner in the business. We couldn't have picked a better couple to celebrate this occasion with.  The wedding was also our first one in the town of DuBois. Sally and her groom, Matt, lived out of state; but Sally's is from DuBois and her parents still reside there.  I could tell right away that our bride was proud of...

There is something special and fun about an at home wedding. Its a chance to get to know a couple on a little bit more of an intimate level. Cristin, who lives in Ohio, contacted me for a wedding she planned to have in a property her parents purchased in the Jersey Shore area (that is the city Jersey Shore in Pennsylvania, nothing you would see on a beach).  She explained the grounds had a barn but no house yet, as her parents...

2017 was a whirlwind of excitement and changes for my wedding planning company, H&K Weddings and Events. My business partner Kacy, decided to step away after finishing up a few previous booked weddings; so half of my weddings were without her by my side. In light of this changed, I worked on freshening up the business with a new logo, website, and re-structured how I sell my services. I also started this blog! Then their were...

I remember the first conversation with bride-to-be Stephanie (nicknamed Stevie) very well.  She had this over the top, larger than life, personality but was also warm and caring. I smiled hearing her talk about herself and tell the story of how her and her soon to be husband met. She's the type of person you could never be bored in her company. Stevie has a history in theater productions and wanted a wedding dramatic and jaw d...
