This year I was involved in coordinating The Studio’s annual Pink Party. We had all of our vendors donate their services; from the food, beverages, lighting, entertainment, all the way to the gift donations for raffle prizes. Since this was The Studio’s first year open, it was a smaller yet wonderful turn out. Below is the flyer for the event, along with a few images of the night from my camera phone (excuse the quality).
This is what comes to life when you mix a little Cuban and Spanish culture together….the bright colors come out and the party doesn’t stop till the wee hours into the morning. Rachael and Mike’s wedding had everything from both cultures, starting from the gold coin exchange at the ceremony, to his and hers signature drinks (sangria for her, mojito for him), both Spanish and Cuban signature staple foods, all the way down to the authentic Spanish fans and “Cuban” cigars for the favors.
This couple and their family was absolutely amazing to work with from the very start. They are the people that make me love what I do soo much!!

Everything purple and green…the drinks, food, decor, dessert table, gifts, etc. Everything was purple and green!! The bride’s reaction to the decor and overall turn out was priceless as soon as she walked in, almost as if it were her seeing her wedding reception for the first time. This shower was a sure hit with all the guests as well because there were plenty of games and food [seaweed salad, ceasar salad, pesto chicken sandwiches, tequila lime shrimp, fruit, bruschetta, and the delicious dessert bar of course] to go around. The shower came to an end with everyone enjoying their time in the prop photobooth.
Since I know what its like to always wonder who the person is behind all the planning, not just a picture and a brief description of “about us”, but who truly is behind the scenes – personality and all. Well, that is what this post is about, so I hope it makes you feel like you know me a little better.
I have always been a crafty & artistic person, so I have to say I love anything homemade, from scrapbooks down to jewelry. I am a jewelry fanatic and cannot leave the house without having some type of earrings on. I believe the right piece of jewelry or the right accessory of any type can make any outfit fabulous. I am in love with being in love and cannot get enough of romantic/romantic comedy movies. My husband and I have been together for 9 years. I love photography and wish I knew how to use our Nikon SLR with all our fancy lenses. With that being said, here is a photoshoot that I did with the amazing Maria from Be My Light Photography. We had a really great time on this shoot and wanted to share the images. Enjoy the fun photos and I hope you feel like you know “the girl behind the planning” a little bit better now!!
