If you have any amount of guests traveling in from out-of-town for your wedding you will want to establish some room-blocks for them. Typically a room-block is a reservation of ten or more rooms at a group discounted rate and is usually considered a necessary courtesy for your guests.
I first met Kristen and Oscar at their friend's New Year's Eve wedding a couple years ago - my how time flies! It's always such an honor to meet people through someone else's wedding party and continue on to plan their big day as well. Kristen and Oscar are truly a perfect match for one other. During our time together it was always fun watching them interact, as each has a tendency to balance the other out in the best of ways. They both enjoy a good glass of wine or beer together, which was incorporated as a subtle theme throughout their day.
Jen & Brad knew getting married back home in Phoenix was a top priority for both of them, and regardless of their busy lives they were going to make that happen! I was able to work with them from the very beginning of the process all they way through to their wedding day which was such a rewarding journey for me. Together we designed meaningful details and really crafted a day that was reflective of them as a couple. They wanted to ensure guests had a great time and that their day had a garden-party-meets-backyard-wedding feel to it.
When I was working with Amanda on plans for her Webster Farm wedding here in Gilbert, Arizona, she would often joke that her "theme" was transportation seeing as there would be food trucks catering dinner, The Duke Truck serving up drinks, Ollie the Trolley to transport everyone, and The Foto Booth Bus to capture the festivities! The first time she explained her vision to me I was ecstatic to be working alongside such a creative bride and could not wait to help coordinate it all!
