Q: What is your favorite current wedding trend?
A: Having grown up in Petaluma, I really love weddings that incorporate rustic or "country" elements in chic and elegant ways. I love where I'm from and love it when our couples appreciate the beauty of this area.
Q: Do you have a favorite wedding blog or magazine?
A: Ours! Of course! :-)
Q: What is your favorite part of a client’s wedding day?
A: My favorite part of our clients' wedding day is getting to see how excited they get when they finally see their vision "come to life." I always try to carve out five minutes in the timeline for the couple to see the reception site before the guests are invited in and I love their heartfelt reactions to seeing it for the first time.
