Sweet Blossom Weddings described in three words:
Detailed, Organized, Committed

Why wedding and event planning? What about your career makes it worthwhile each day?
Every wedding needs a great wedding planner! I naturally fell in love with weddings at an early age after being asked to be a flower girl multiple times. I quickly learned the importance of having a great wedding planner in order to make the wedding flow seamlessly. It was a lifelong dream of mine to own a wedding planning business, so it was only natural for the fruition of Sweet Blossom Weddings.

There are so many elements of wedding planning that make my job worthwhile. But when I notice it the most is at the end of each wedding. The couple is always so appreciative of all the hard work and effort put into their day to make sure that they were able to enjoy all the special moments without having to worry about a thing!

What's your favorite moment of the wedding and why?
My favorite part of the wedding is when the couple gets to see the ballroom for the first time! If possible, I like to schedule a time on the wedding day where the couple can be the first ones to look at the completed ballroom. I love the look on their faces as they see the room set-up with all the décor elements we've put together. Plus they get to have this special private moment with each other!

How would you describe the Sweet Blossom Weddings experience?
At Sweet Blossom Weddings, your wedding is truly your wedding! Our goal is to design a wedding that is unique to the couple and defines their personality through working together one-on-one in a relaxed and stress-free environment. With our guidance and expertise, we will help you with your wedding, your vision, and your dreams to make it the most memorable day.

Name one thing that sets Sweet Blossom Weddings apart from its competitors:
One thing that sets Sweet Blossom Weddings apart from our competitors is that we are a boutique coordination company. We limit our number of weddings per year so we can focus our attention on the couples that have hired us to help them with their wedding day. You will truly feel that one-on-one experience when working with Sweet Blossom Weddings.

What is one important piece of advice you would like to share with brides?
Make sure to cherish each moment on your wedding day, as it really does go by fast! From the moment you wake up, to putting on your wedding gown or tuxedo, to seeing your bride or groom for the first time, to walking down the aisle, your first dance as husband and wife, toasts, and the very last dance! Each moment is as special as the others. Try to take a picture in your mind so you can remember it forever!
