Playa Del Carmen Wedding BTS

Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to hop on plane and head to Cancun for about 5 days to pull off a full on wedding extravaganza at El Dorado Royale. It was quite the adventure to say the least. As with any wedding, there are so many details that go into every part of the day… but when you take that over to another country, it practically doubles. I’m pretty sure I was emailing the hotel 3x a week for over 8 months haha – but all our hard work paid off and the wedding day was downright perfection! I took a few snaps on my phone throughout the week to share with you all. If you are considering a destination wedding, it is such a great option! I’m thinking of doing a follow up post on dos and don’ts for planning a destination wedding, would anyone be interested in that? Let me know in the comments below!

I packed all my clothes in this cute mini carry on suitcase from DesignLoveFest… and the rest of our FOUR bags were for wedding decor! And these cute little flamingo drink floaties were in the welcome bags for each guest – so cute!  Continue Reading…

Take Back The Night Summer Cocktail

Hola friends! I know it’s been a little silent over here the past couple weeks… could you hear the crickets chirping? We were crazy busy preparing our first destination wedding in Mexico!!!!

Diana & Michael’s Eagle Rock Wedding

Diana & Michael live in DC, and were planning a wedding in Eagle Rock, CA. They were planning it quite successfully actually, with the help of Diana’s incredible family. In an effort to lighten the load on family and make the process a bit smoother, we got brought on board to help with those last min logistics, and we were beyond thrilled. Diana and Michael are probably the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. Like ever. And their big day was nothing short of that. There were so many sweet moments, with joyful tears, and the biggest hugs. You could literally feel the love and emotion in the room the entire evening.

Spring Brunch Inspiration

Tut tut it looks like Spring! We love planning beautiful wedding receptions, obvi, but we also love hosting in our own home probably just as much. Case in point – our outdoor dinner party tips for Lauren Conrad.com and our Valentine’s Brunch! There is something so special about gathering around a beautifully curated table and sharing a meal with friends, am I right? It’s my favorite. So on this somewhat dreary Monday morning, I thought I’d pull one of out of the archives for you! This is a brunch shoot I put together with Marlene Bernstein – chef extraordinaire and Emily Reiter of Anna Delores Photography.

It’s fun, bright, full of DIYs that you can easily do yourself… and there is a mimosa bar. So there. That’s literally all you need to host your girls in the best way.

A Day In The Life

Hey guys. I’m Emilee! This post is all about my life as a wedding planner! The number one question/comment I get once I tell people what I do for a living is: “Oh! So cool. Like JLo?!” My first reaction is like, “ew, no- I’m way more fun and hello… I don’t steal my client’s fiancès. Duh”  But then, I have to realize: 1) People don’t really remember that part in that movie and 2) Most people don’t actually know what a wedding planner/wedding coordinator is slash does all day. So, thanks to my recent partnership with JORD, wood watches, I’m here to tell you all about what a typical day looks like for me!
