Vintage Travel Inspired Wedding at La Valencia

We met with Will and Jess early in the planning process and fell in love with their style, personalities and admiration for one another. We got to know them and immediately started the search for the perfect venue! Will and Jess ended up choosing the one and only La Valencia Hotel because of its charm, character and stunning location. We adore hosting weddings at this iconic venue and highly recommend it to future newlyweds. We designed a vintage travel theme to incorporate into each part of the wedding – from invitations by Dolldine Designs to vintage rentals by Petals & Lace Design, and every aspect of the wedding day experience.

International Wedding + Event Planning Certification

One of our own has just become event planning certified! Shauna, an assistant coordinator, has recently completed a wedding and event planning course at QC Career School. This online school has many course choices ranging from event planning to makeup artistry and more. Shauna chose the IEWP (International Event & Wedding Planning) course because she felt that this course touched on all bases of event planning. Throughout this 6-unit series, she learned the ins and outs of weddings and corporate events. Each unit prompts students to create, write, and research about events in their own locale. Once enrolled, students have access to counselors, a student forum where students can connect and learn from one another, as well as the option to create one’s own personal website! A certification like this opens many doors and gives great insight into what it takes to run a successful event.
