OC's Finest Blog has Moved!


That's right! I've got a new and improved Blog! Come see & make note of the new address! soon to the new blog: My attendance at the "Orange Coast Weddings Magazine Launch Party" at the Montage in Laguna Beach!

Orange County Goes Green!


I was overjoyed to be present at the Launch of The Green Event Studio presented by The Spiraled Stem Floral Design & Foscari Events & Catering. The event was to benefit Brides Against Breast Cancer, a charity that has deeply touched my heart! As I watch my friend Carol battle Breast Cancer every day, I am so touched to see all the ways women, young and old, are showing their support! Christine

Kristen & Alan- Nixon Library


I have been on pins and needles waiting for these gorgeous images from Orange County’s famous photographer Aaron Delesie….and BOY, was it worth the wait! Did I mention that Aaron was the photographer behind Orange County's most anticipated TV Wedding...... Housewives or Orange County on Bravo? He did remarkable work on Laurie & George's Wedding last summer! Thank you Aaron and team for sharing

Fundraiser Fun!


Last Friday some of my wonderful friends and past brides held a Wine & Fondue Fundraiser to raise money for the LA Marathon run this coming March 3rd! The response was amazing and so many friends and fellow vendors came out to support the amazing cause! The LA Marathon Run is for Lymphoma & Leukemia research and holds a very special place in my heart. My husband was diagnosed with Lymphoma the

December Delights! Adelaide & Ed


December was my last wedding of 07' and I had the pleasure of coordinating a beautiful Wedding Celebration for Adelaide & Ed! It was an absolutely stunning event! Adelaide is from New York and travels quite frequently and her fiance resided in Houston so she really needed my help in keeping her organized and SANE! :) We had a great time pulling together the details and they were such a delightful

New Years In Denver!


Happy New Year Everyone! I know my blog has been a little empty lately and stay tuned for a couple weddings from 07' that I haven't had a chance to blog just yet! I usually try to keep this blog wedding related, but what the heck......I did something semi romantic so I guess this qualifies! My husband is a HUGE Denver Bronco fan. I decided to surprise him with a trip to Denver CO for his Xmas

Happy Turkey Day!


It was the first year in our new home so I decided to host Thanksgiving!! Yay!! All of this 5 days after our BIG & CRAZY FUN Housewarming Party. What was I thinking? I know.....I am a party girl who loves having friends and family over. Any excuse to make my Turkey Placecards, I was all over it!! If I had ONE big thing to be Thankful for, it was the weather. It was such a beautiful day! Since I

Andrea + Erik 10.20.07


Andrea and Erik are such a warm and loving couple. Every time we got together to talk about their wedding, I would notice these LOVE BIRDS catch a glimpse of each other across the table. TRUE LOVE right there! I was so excited to coordinate their gorgeous wedding at Bowers Museum. You will see by the pictures that this bride LOVES touches of fall and her favorite holiday is Halloween! How do you

A "Blue" Galaxy Wedding......


This past Saturday I had a blast at Belinda & Chris's wedding! We started in Laguna Beach at a quaint little church that had a peekaboo glance at the ocean. The reception followed in Costa Mesa at the Super Swanky, Center Club. This place is a hidden gem with a great layout, spectacular food, and impeccable service. The cocktail reception was all about Indy music, Star Wars touches, and lots of

Paradise at the Hyatt!


I feel absolutely lucky to have met this smart, sophisticated, and stunning couple! Caroline and Terry have it all.....looks, brains and absolute adoration for each other! It seems like yesterday that we met for lunch to talk about their dreams for the big day! There were alot of out of town guests from all over the US so what a better destination than the beach! My dream team of wedding

Double Happiness- Katie & Kam


Two Ceremonies and a Big Reception! What an Amazing Celebration! We started the morning early with a tea ceremony and an amazing hosted lunch at Katie's family home. At 9:00am it was nearly reaching 90 degrees and guess who was ALL smiles and glowing? You guessed it! Katie and Kam! The gowns were absolutely stunning! Katie looked breathtaking and the fun started when Kam and his men arrived to



Sorrrrrrrry ladies and gents, I am a little behind on blogging, but had to share a few pictures from a wedding I did last July 27th. Todd and Clara are an exceptionally LOVEABLE couple. Everytime I met with them, they became closer than clients and more like GOOD friends that are planning a fun party together! They have a great connection and compliment each other so well that it was always

My Best Friend's Wedding!!


Of all the weddings I’ve planned, helping my best friend plan her gorgeous destination wedding in Cambria has to be my favorite! When Nicole & Matt decided to choose outside of the OC to wed, I knew exactly why! They wanted a get-away for their guests and Cambria happened to be where Matt proposed. Awwwwwwww! Matt dropped down on one knee off the cliffs of beautiful Ragged Point in Cambria and

7 Degrees of a Laguna Beach Wedding....


Ok, I am going on 5 hours of sleep and I am still in awe of this GORGEOUS wedding for Jemie & Jeff this Sunday so I had to blog a couple pics. There are some non pro sneak peeks from my camera at the very bottom which are not so great, but the lighting really couldn’t mess up anyone’s shot of this set up.Jemie was a fabulously innovative bride that came to me to help implement a magazine worthy

Kick up your feet! It's Winter Special Time!!


Who DOESN'T LOVE A DISCOUNT?? Although Wedding season IS year-round in Southern California, there are months that are slower than I decided I would offer a large discount to my potential November, December & January clients. Ask me about my DOC winter special!! Do you really want your Mom or Best Friend running around the day of your wedding putting out escort cards, favors,

Foto.....Foto Cabina!


Last Friday Night I was honored to be invited to a Foto Cabina Launch party hosted by one of my favorite photographers in the industry, Jim Kennedy at his Huntington Beach Studio. Jim and co-hosts, Dane Sanders, & Carl Kasalek shared this FAB Foto-Cabina to the Wedding Industries Finest Pros! I was super excited to get in the booth to see the magic of how it can bring party goers to a funny new

Normalyn & Manny’s Wedding~ UPDATE: Check out the Pro-Pic Slideshow provided by the amazing Michael of Memories by Michael -What a GORGEOUS Wedding at Rancho Capistrano! There was a spell of magic in the air and a taste of heat this past Saturday but I couldn’t have imagined a more elegant day full of LOVE! I was so elated to work with this amazing couple and this bride was probably one of the

Must See TV!


Are you Ready? I mean…..are you REALLY ready? The new Season of Bridezilla’s is here and although watching it makes the hair on my neck stand up, I realize there is a formula to this show………NONE of these ladies have wedding planners!! If they do, they are aunts, friends, or in-laws with limited to NO experience. No Bueno Folks! The censor bleeps are abundant, and while I have seen some crazy

An "Angel-ic" Wedding


It would be no suprise that my Ultra-Vivacious bride and groom Melissa & Michael are big time ANGEL'S fans! Their energy was abundant, their guests were enamored, and I was truely captured by the PURE love they showed to each other throughout the day! Michael suprised their guests during the grand entrance by walking in with his Red Angel's Cap....and Melissa surprised her new hubby with his

Creative Recycling!


Better late than never right?? This was the Famous hanging "N" that I made for my best buds shower (post below). I used paper flower balls made from scratch by Kelli, one of my March brides....See her original creation from my Surf and Sand post below! I have to give a big SHOUT OUT to my girl Kelli for letting me take these!! I know how hard you worked on them and after a few hours, I was able

Showered with Love Sweet Love!!


My best friend Nicole is getting married this summer in Cambria at the Beautiful Cambria Pines Lodge. As her Maid of Honor I threw her a spectacular, tasty, and fun shower that hopefully she’ll remember forever! From paper lanterns, to my interesting re-use of flower balls (see Kelli’s wedding below) I was able to make a pretty darn cool “N” to hang! (Pics to follow of that) and thanks Kelli!!

Stunning Day at the Surf & Sand!


We had an absolutely AMAZING day at the Surf and Sand Resort for my awesomely fun clients and GOOD friends, Kelli & John! The wedding was beyond gorgeous! Kelli looked stunning and John was simply in-love-at-first-glance when their eyes met! The connection that this couple has is remarkable. I always get teary eyed during ceremonies but this ceremony also had me crying with laughter! The ever

Chastity & Albert's Wedding


What a GORGEOUS March Saturday for Chastity and Albert! We began the afternoon at Famous (as seen on TV) Crystal Cathedral and the Reception followed at the prestine Los Coyotes Country Club.
