2015 is finally here, and we are so excited for all our clients that are going to be celebrating their marriages this year! We have been working on these weddings for months already, and now the fun final details start to begin with our first wedding of the year coming up in just three weeks at the Bohemian Club.
While we have all these weddings already booked, we don't have many available dates for all the new client inquiries we are receiving. We are limited with the amount of weddings we take per month, and also per year, so that we can focus on each one and not have weddings and events every single weekend throughout the season.
What we are offering though is a way to get some help to get you started with your planning with our budget development package and the vendor referral package. These are setup to assist clients that need help getting started with their planning, and aren't yet sure if hiring a full or partial planner is what they need.
The Vendor Referral Package includes a one hour Skype or phone meeting, and a list of up to ten categories of vendor referrals with at least three referrals per category, based on budget, scope of wedding, style, etc.
The Budget Development Package includes a one hour Skype or phone meeting, a full excel spreadsheet budget narrowed into categories based on overall budget, scope of wedding, style, most important vs. least important, etc.
These have been really helpful to some of our recent clients, and if it sounds like something that you might be interested in, please email us for more information or to setup your package.
If you are looking at booking a wedding for 2016, we are now fully taking bookings for spring and summer 2016.
Happy New Year!

While we are not currently hiring, we offer a few options for aspiring wedding and event designers and planners to get a feel for the industry. Here is what we are offering:
1) Be added to our wait list for our Spring 2016 internship by Emailing us here with your resume and your availability between Feb-May.
2) Be added to our assistant wait list. Our assistants sign up for the weddings they are able to work, and most have been with me for many years, as they only work weekends or evenings on specific events. Please Email us your resume, and we will let you know when a spot opens up.
3) Participate in our Mentor Program. This program is offered to qualified participants on a first come first serve basis and is $1000. We only can take five per year as the program includes a day in the office with me along with a lunch to discuss your plans and goals for your own career and how to best obtain that. We then have the mentee shadow at the rehearsal to see all the behind the scenes action from the night before through the wedding day. On the wedding day, the mentee would shadow for the majority of the day, and be able to ask questions along the way, as well as participate in the wedding setup. This is a really fun program, and the majority of our past mentee's have ended up working for me in some capacity, or have gone on to work in the industry. After the program, we review your resume, offer advice and send referrals to job openings as they become available. Email us if you are interested, as we only have two more openings for 2016.

*UPDATE* EXTENDED THROUGH TUESDAY DEC 2 at Midnight PST
As I have mentioned many times before, minted.com is my absolute favorite place for all my holiday cards (both personal and business). This year they rolled out their new fancier free recipient addressing, and I honestly couldn't have been happier with the options to choose from for my business cards, and looking at purchasing my own personal cards today (thank you Cyber Monday sale!), I will be definitely using that service again.
Code for Holiday Cards which is 15% off + free shipping: 15CM
They are also running a 25% off all Wedding Stationery sale today as well, which also has free recipient addressing, but check out all the different items they have for day of paper goods as well.
And if you are looking at anything else on their site, you can also get 25% off that as well, with code 25CM.
now through Monday December 1
