Put some WOW into your wedding!


Kicking off Spring twenty years ago at the premiere of “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” Elizabeth Hurley may have explored with a consultant about what she would wear to the movie premiere. One action or decision can change the perfect event into something unexpected.

According to news.com.au, Hurley suggests her career may have taken a more serious turn had she not worn the famous Versace safety-pin dress that captured the world’s attention. Hurley became an overnight sensation when she appeared alongside her then boyfriend Hugh Grant wearing the infamous black evening gown for the premiere. The plunging Versace dress was held together by oversized gold safety pins, leaving little to the imagination. “THAT dress,” as it was forever then called, launched her career, but quite possibly the one she desired.

Spring refers to love, hope, youth and growth. Rebirth and renewal are the real purpose of Spring. Yes, the cake, gown and centerpieces are all important, but what about the one detail that takes it over the top? We want to bring new trends and services to make your special event not just beautiful but thought-provoking and modern. There are many details that go into creating a special event, but a final touch is when you incorporate a WOW moment with something new and different.

For the ceremony, a giant chuppah can take your guests breath away. {Pictured: the groom handmade the chuppah for his wife-to-be.} Walking down the aisle, is also a magical moment, and could be show stopping with a fireworks display or a special performance as you walk down the aisle.

Take a few dance lessons before your wedding, but instead of the standard waltz, choose a sultry tango or a high-energy swing routine, and then surprise everyone during your first dance. For an unexpected surprise, get your dad or even your grandpa in on the act. {Pictured: this new bride choreographed a funky dance for the Father-Daughter Dance.}

Just when everyone thinks the fun is winding down, liven up the party with late-night nibbles that will leave everyone ready for an after-party. Think about it: crinkle French fries, fresh chocolate chip cookies and milk shooters, a fully loaded taco bar, or even a chicken and waffle truck!

If Your Dreams Don’t Scare You, They’re Not Big Enough!

Today, I’m sharing my ultimate dream…managing my own Estate Venue for Weddings and Events. This has been my ultimate dream/goal/vision for some time now and recently it’s been on my heart a lot!

The Cordova

Almost everyday I run past this Estate on Sunset Cliffs. It is for sale. The price has gone down, but it still at a 3.4 million dollar price tag. This particular Estate is perfect, because the main house could be the amazing Venue/Events + Style concierge office. My husband and I could also live in the back guest house. I know that my dream is big enough to scare me, because I actually contacted the agent and have investigated a loan to purchase it. However…I am still working on how I can make that happen!

I know that If my dream is going to happen, I need to ask for it, share with others, and pray about it lots. If anyone knows of an Estate that the owners would like to discuss having Events + Style manage  Beautiful Weddings and Events…I would be interested in talking with them. The Estate could generate additional income from Events and could possibly double as a Vacation Home Rental.

Ocean Views are preferred, but I would consider all Estates with Huge Venue, Dream Fulfilling Potential 🙂
