Weddings Redefined

Last night was my Weddings Redefined workshop for engaged same-sex couples, generously hosted by Umbria Restaurant.  Thank you to all who came and to our generous hosts - it was a lot of fun and I truly appreciate your participation.  Umbria is a great spot with a number of very flexible and visually interesting function spaces and I hope that some of you book your wedding, rehearsal dinner or party there.  Anyway, I love doing this workshop because I meet couples at all stages of planning, from those getting married this in a few months to those who haven't even set a date and are in the midst of venue research.

There are always so many great questions and while I have a lot of information to share, my favorite part is how interactive the workshop gets.  Not only do the guests mingle with each other and with us, but the workshop itself has Q&A throughout and allows for an informative and conversational dialogue around the room. 

Last night we talked about... invitations, etiquette, venue selection, dos and don'ts of toasts, my beef with Ipod receptions, qualities of a great DJ, linens, personalizing your wedding, gay wedding traditions, elements of wedding design and a lot more.  I gave away most of my secrets, including some great venue ideas, some of my favorite vendors and design inspirations.  I talked about our wedding, and my intern Jessica, who I'll introduce to you soon, talked about hers.

I've had a lot of interest in this seminar and many people couldn't make it last night but rest assured that once wedding season is behind us, I'll host another seminar in the fall and another in the winter. 

Congratulations to all the sweet and adorable couples and thank you for coming!
