life according to a frantic wedding planner.

My apologies

Posted in Uncategorized by fromiwilltoido on October 26, 2009

Oh my dear readers,

I apologize for my delayed post. I have been so swamped with real life that I tend forget to live in the fantastical world of weddings that I truly belong in.

I feel like I have forgotten to formally introduce you to the happy couple. So, here they are: The future Mr. and Mrs. Jeremy and Erin Hohengarten.


In this moment, my heart swells with love.

As I am typing this I am watching Love Actually, particularly the wedding scene. Aside from the fact that Keira Knightley is wearing a sham of a wedding dress, the wedding is gorgeous. To have a choir sing and a band surprisingly play “All you need is love” would make a wedding entirely memorable. Sometimes I dream of my wedding with a scenario as such. Then I remember that movies are different than real life with reason … worst reception ever!

Anyways, onto the real life wedding that I do get to make decisions about, Erin and Jeremy may have found the venue this week! They are debating between two, and I urge you to help them make their decision.

The first option is The Piedmont Community Center. A beautiful center, located about 30 minutes or less from where both the bride and groom live currently. The center is equipped with windows that could make for absolutely inspirational lighting.

The second is, well, pretty incredible. It is the Union Hill Inn in Sonora, California. Unfortunately, this location is two hours from the brides home and family, but it is the hometown of the groom. This venue includes the entire barn and inn. It is insanely gorgeous and almost exactly what the bride has imagined.

So, please leave comments, give me your thoughts. They will be shared with the bride and groom who are just itching to get this all sorted out and planned.

I am so excited for this process!

Just remember, readers, that love is real, and so great. I’m in it, Erin and Jeremy are in it, it is a good place to be. So, dwell in that, and get ready for more updates on the wedding of a lifetime.

“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaking suspision love actually is all around.”

-Hugh Grant, Love Actually

Remember in the end, when Aurelia and Jamie learn each others languages in hopes that the other one will think of them and love them forever? Well, this wedding is going to be even better than that moment, I promise.

Love, always always love,

Emily, the wedding planner.

    I think that you should go with the Union Hill. If that is what Erin has always dreamed off then it is perfect. Two hours away from home isn’t too bad, I am sure that family and friends will be more than willing to drive the distance to see this great ceremony. No matter where it ends up it is going to be absolutely magical.
