Last year, i worked with a wedding & event coordinator (Alexan Events) in Denver, Colorado. I was given the opportunity to work in Los Angeles, CA or to take another opportunity in Denver, CO. Because I had just graduated from school in Boulder, Colorado, I wanted to stay and spend more time in the beautiful state of Colorado. So, I took the opportunity. I would never take back the opportunity that I had. I was able to experience some of the most beautiful destination weddings, meet new people, and work in an environment I loved. Though, I can say wedding planning or any kind of planning is very stressful. However, if you love what you do and by that I mean truly love what you, it will never feel like a burden. No matter the hours, the stress, the demand-it was all done with passion.

Of all the weddings I worked on, Sam & Tomaso, was truly my favorite wedding to work on. It was our last wedding (save the best for last i suppose?) but it was such a beautiful wedding. Sam and Tomaso’s love is tangible. You can feel it, it is electric when you are near them.¬†As individuals, they were both so special and genuine. But as a couple, their love was intoxicating.

I hope you can see it too now!
