What are you doing Thursday?

Get Hitched, Give Hope from Edit 1 Media on Vimeo.

The amazingly talented and oh so generous Edit 1 Media created this one of a kind video highlighting last year's Get Hitched Give Hope. With only 4 days left until the big event I thought I would share it with you. If this video doesn't make you want to come then I don't know what will!

BUT... just in case I will also mention that we will be auctioning off an Edit 1 Media Love Story/Engagement Music video, designer Anne Barge couture dresses (not just 1 but 5), T. Anthony Sholdt diamond wedding bands, spa packages, and much much more! There is something for everyone. I'll be buying up the raffle tickets by the dozen! I'm married and in the industry, but there is soooo much good stuff I want a chance to win (and donate) of course!

Tickets are on sale now. Buy one here!

Dear Wendi Wednesday...Wedding Dress?

Dear Wendi,

Where is the best place to get a wedding dress?

-Bride in need of help, Seattle

Dear Bride in need of help,

This is a great question! A wedding dress is a HUGE part of your wedding. It is your signature piece! It tells everyone everything about you and your style. With my clients I can tell/plan everything about a wedding based on her engagement ring and dress choice(s). A fabulous dress is a MUST have! I know that budgets have gotten a little tighter this year than in years past, so to answer this question I have a fabulous suggestion:

Get Hitched Give Hope has given us another sneak peak at one of the awesome items that will be auctioned/raffled off at the bridal event on Oct. 29th!!

"The Gown Diva Package!" It includes not just ONE dress... but your choice of FIVE couture Anne Barge gowns!!! In addition, Liz Navarro, personal stylist to the most fashionable brides, will help you pair one of these gowns to best fit your body type and style. She will pair it with Grace shoes and a Madina Vadache veil (courtesy Voletta Couture!) to bout! And if that weren't enough, she will also act as your style consultant for accessories!

This package would normally be well over 4 Grand... but of course... anything goes when a live auction begins! The bids will start WELL below retail value (like WELL BELOW!). This is an opportunity any bride would dream about, but at auction prices it is a Dream Come True! So, buy your tickets, get there early, check out the gorgeous models who will be roaming around the Dome Room, and ask plenty of questions- Liz will be there all night!
Tickets and more here!!! http://www.gethitchedgivehope.com/

p.s. Did I tell you that proceeds from the event will go to grant final wishes for Stage 4 breast cancer patients? Well, they do. So go get your ticket. Like now! Go on. Do it. BE A GIVER ;)

I hope this helps you (Bride in need of help) and every other Seattle, Portland, Spokane, etc. bride out there. This event is worth the drive!

Real Wedding Friday - Angela & Nathan Alanis!

I met Angela & Nathan last October after Angela saw me nominated on King 5's Best of Western Washington. She came to me with a few ideas of what she wanted for her and Nathan's wedding, but was mostly a clean slate willing and wanting my help and advice! I love working with clients like this! It gives me a chance to really work with them to figure out what makes their relationship special and how to best showcase their personalities in their wedding. I had such a great time working with Angela & Nathan for the 7 months prior to their wedding! They are such a fun, loving, and sincere couple.

I have the greatest job in the world! Here are a few images from their amazing day:
