sweet winter wedding REFLECTION {12.27.08}

Taking a break from "our planning" posts. Here is a reflection blog from Cyril, our Event Coordinator, on the sweet winter wedding that we coordinated on 12.27.08 at the La Jolla Hyatt Glass Pavilion...and some pictures provided by Cheryl, the bride, thanks to her family and friends and the b&w team. Benny and Cheryl are the perfect match; let me add, they dated for 10 years before tying the knot! Congratulations!!! (We will post professional pics as soon as we get them so you can see how it all came together; these pictures are only a small snippet of the entire event.)

My main goal as the coordinator of b&w is for the bride and groom to be a guest at their own wedding. I have always heard of other couples who didn’t hire a professional coordinator, expressing how much they wished they did. Because of this, couples were too busy working their own wedding--juggling time, vendors, and guests--sadly, they did not get to enjoy themselves! An important event like this, where a lot of time, planning, and preparation is involved, it is a MUST that the bride and groom get to relax, relish, and cherish every moment of their special day.

I cannot express how essential it is to hire a wedding coordinator, even if it is for the day-of…and Benny and Cheryl did just that! Not only did they plan and design this beautiful winter work of art, but they truly were guests at their wedding. They were relieved from the stresses of timing and coordinating with vendors because b&w stepped in and executed the itinerary successfully.

It was absolutely amazing how the couple was able to spend quality time with each other, appreciate their dinner, and mingle with friends and family throughout the entire evening, without having to feel rushed! Nonetheless, the program still ran smoothly and was on time- to the very minute!
