Sensational Weddings Fixit Kit

Whether you’re a wedding planner or a bride having a complete Sensational Weddings Fixit Kit with all the essentials is a necessity! If it can happen ~ it will happen. 

Here’s a personal story…at a destination bar mitzvah in Las Vegas my client’s son was wearing newly starched shirts and they were irritating his nipples. So his mom tells me and I said, do you want to borrow my silicone nipple covers? Seriously, this happened! I reached in and grabbed them and handed them over. He wore them all night then handed them back to me. And, it happened again at another event I did in Del Mar when the client wasn’t happy how sheer the daughter’s top was. What I do for my clients! LOL The moral of the story….always be prepared.

I planned my son’s wedding in fewer than five months and from another state. Amy was a huge help and calming presence from the moment I first spoke with her on the phone.

She is quick to respond to email, texts or phone calls. Her creative ideas and organization skills are clearly based on years of experience producing successful events. I appreciated her straightforward communications with me and all the vendors. My only regret is that I did not hire her on the very first day that my son became engaged!

It’s All In The Details: Kosher Wedding Weekend Success Story

“Without Amy and Sensational Events we wouldn’t have had such an amazing wedding experience! With all of the coordination, communication, scheduling, budgeting, and organization planning a wedding can be a daunting task. Especially for two full time workers who wanted to have a kosher wedding.

“When Danielle and I were first engaged we knew that we wanted to make our wedding a once in a lifetime event. Getting the right help would be crucial in achieving this. When we met Amy we knew right away that she would be the one to plan this extraordinary occasion. Amy communicated and coordinated between all of the family members both local and out of town regarding the budget, events, guest lists, and overall timeline of the entire wedding. When we needed something to get done she was on top of it making phone calls, sending e-mails, and making home visits. Amy even helped surprise my wife by coordinating time for me to practice with the wedding band so that I could sing a song for my wife at the wedding.

“Amy orchestrated it all! Helping to pick out the venue, organizing the rehearsal dinner, choosing the invitations, the wedding band, the flowers, the food, the wedding cake, the table settings, the tablecloth. And all of it coordinated to perfection. Even after the wedding was over Amy kept in contact with us following up on wedding pictures, videography, and “Thank you” notes. Without Amy we couldn’t have done it and we highly recommend her for your next special event!”   ~ Danielle Breslow and Benjamin Gross

CONCEPT

Wedding Sophistication

INVITATION AND WEDDING DETAILS

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS and that is why my go to gal is Kim McDowell, The Event Essentials. Before anything is pen to paper, we develop several concepts to present to the Bride, Groom and Mother-Of-The Bride (MOB). It’s our job to show them what they asked for but also give them our recommendations that elevate their ideas to a whole new level. Kim and I are big believers of branding so first and foremost we encourage the client to have a monogram for their wedding. This way all our details have that identity stamp. Details include Save The Dates, Wedding Program, Escort Cards, Reception Signage (Menu Cards, Table Numbers, Mr. and Mrs.), Weekend Itinerary and Thank You Notes.

STYLE

The weekend was a perfect harmony of colors. Friday Shabbat dinner was turquoise waye with ivory lamour napkins. At the Rehearsal Dinner on Saturday night, a southwest approach of honey paisley faux leather with an espresso underly and copper matte napkin rings made the look complete. The wedding color palette was spectacular golds, ivory and smoke purple.  The dining tables were picture perfect with a biscuit shantung underly topped with ivory calista lace and ivory lamour napkins. Our specialty tables (sweetheart and cake) were dramatic with a ivory shantung and heavenly dreams linen. And for Monday brunch, with such beautiful November Arizona weather we made our back east guests welcome with fire orange cirque linens and canary lamour napkins. Thanks to the keen eye and creativity of Laura Southwick, Southwick Linens.

FLORAL DÉCOR BY

Each event during the weekend had it’s own look so Christine Siegel and her team at The Flower Studio took the look of the linens and created that signature  look. Shabbat Dinner coordinated a beautiful array of white flowers such as hydrangea, roses and cymbidium orchids with the surrounding trees decorated with specialty lanterns. Saturday Rehearsal dinner  kept with the Southwest look and had a gorgeous succulent garden as their centerpieces. The wedding as you can see from the pictures of the Chuppah and table centerpieces was perfection as its best! Rich purples, white, and ivory were captured in all wedding floral from the bouquet to the flower girls head pieces. I couldn’t have imagined anyone but The Flower Studio creative this wedding fantasy.

AZ ATTORNEYS SHOWER SENSATIONAL EVENTS WITH RAVE WEDDING REVIEWS

“We loved Amy from the moment we met her. She was extremely warm, friendly and professional. Once she started to help us with the planning of our wedding, we were amazed at how perfectly Amy was able to identify what suited our tastes. She had quickly become familiar with who we were and what we liked. Amy worked exceptionally hard for us to make our dream wedding come true, while at the same time working with a budget that we had set. She found the best vendors for all aspects of the wedding. And, she helped create wedding details that made our wedding unique and special for us and our guests. Amy accommodated our busy schedules and was always available through e-mail, phone and text. She kept us organized and on task so that we were truly able to enjoy our wedding day. We had been on the fence about hiring a wedding planner until we met Amy. And now we cannot imagine our lives without Amy and will be recommending her to all of our friends who get engaged. She made the wedding planning process and our wedding day go so smoothly. We are so appreciative of everything Amy and Sensational Events did to make our wedding day truly the best day of our lives. Amy is fabulous and we cannot stop singing her praises. Thank you, Amy, for being the best wedding planner ever!”   ~ Karin Hom Royle and Bret Royle
