Exciting News!

I am so excited to finally announce the official dates and location of the first class of the As You Wish Education Division's wedding planner training program. Our first class will take place from January 11-January 15.

And here is the most exciting part! As You Wish is working with Maggiano's Little Italy Restaurant. All future classes of the As You Wish Education Division will be held at Maggiano's - not only here in New Jersey, but at Maggiano's all across the country. Our New Jersey class will be held at the Maggiano's Riverside Square in Hackensack, NJ - a convenient drive from all points in New Jersey and NYC! Not only will you be able to start out on the path towards an amazing career, but you'll get to enjoy some really incredible Italian food while doing so! Our class will offer breakfast, morning snacks, a full three course Italian lunch, and afternoon snack each day!

Be on the lookout for Summer 2010 classes in Philadelphia and Boston. Do you want us to hold an As You Wish ED class in your city? Would you like more information about our New Jersey classes? Email us and let us know!

Keep checking back for our new website which will be up in the next few weeks!

Real Wedding!

I love coming home to presents, and this morning I got a great one! I had CD's full of pictures from one of my weddings last year from my favorite photographer, Tania Lezak. Check out some of my favorite shots from the day!
There was a wine tasting bar set up for the guests throughout the reception. At the end of the night, every guest recieved a bottle of their favorite wine as a favor!

The happy couple!

The bride and groom are very involved with their town's Fourth of July celebration. When picking their wedding date, Flag Day was the perfect tribute to their patriotic love! As each guest arrived, they were given a flag pin with a description of Flag Day!

Their cake was gorgeous and one of the main hits of the party!

The small reception allowed for table names rather than numbers. All of the tables were patriotic themed!

Here's my absolute favorite part! The bride and groom are currently building their dream house. They decided to hold the ceremony in the bones of their future house! Is that an amazing way to create family history or what??

I love this shot because it says so much about this family. They are some of the sweetest and most welcoming people I have ever met. I really am so privileged to have been involved with them!

I am so happy I was able to work with Ann Marie and Gary on their big day and that I have continued to work with their family!
Special Thanks to Tania! Check out her work, she is incredible!

Honeymoon Warnings!

I came across an article from Travel & Leisure about some different laws in countries around the world that you should be aware of while on your honeymoon! Some that could really affect your honeymoon? You can't kiss at a train station in France or England and you can't stroll in a bathing suit in Grenada!
