Have you met Colin Cowie? It was so great to work with him again!

The ABC (Association of Bridal Consultants) Annual Conference in Newport Beach, CA was FABULOUS this year, and he was one of the many reasons!!  We had over 350 wedding planners from all over the world!

Colin is one of my FAVORITE designers! Not only is Colin refined, classy, elegant, savvy, motivating, (OK, I could go ON and ON), but this year he revealed a “top secret” wedding which was SO over the top!   Sorry, I can’t share with you any specifics about this “top secret” wedding, since I was SWORN not to, but it was the BEST!  As I always say, “Knowledge IS Power”!

One of the many things I love doing is working with brides on a one-to-one basis to REVEAL their “hidden treasure”. By the way, if you are a bride, or a mother of the bride (MOB), or a maid of honor (MOH), you may or may not even know what this is!  Most brides are amazed at how I can take something they feel is “not special”, or is “not important”, but is the KEY INGREDIENT in making their wedding be FABULOUS!  After 21 years experience planning weddings, this is one of the most basic things, but one of the most powerful ways to create OVER THE TOP weddings to WOW your family and friends!  By doing this, you pull out the passion for your day!

As one of the Master Bridal Consultants (1 of 39 in the World), this is something I have always done.  To others this is “shocking” how I can take a “simple” element like this and with my knowledge and ideas transform this into an over the top wedding with unforgettable moments for all!

Previewed InterContinental Montelucia Resort & Spa, in Paradise Valley, AZ – 84 days prior to their opening day! I enjoyed a behind-the scenes tour, experiencing the attention-to-detail and small touches incorporated into the resort design, and learned why InterContinental Montelucia Resort & Spa is going to be the perfect venue for weddings! Although we had to wear hard hats, there was attention to detail in every moment of their presentation!
