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!
