Charming Venue

I recently attended a wedding of a family friend at the Rancho San Clemente Tennis Club.  According to many, it is the “hidden jewel of San Clemente.”  The venue is a mediterranean style structure with a large open reception pation overlooking a gorgeous pool, and a ceremony site lush with greenery.

This site is definitely a value, and the staff are very attentive and determined to provide everyone a great time.  We enjoyed a delish buffet dinner and home-made cake by one of the bride’s friends.  I love being a guest at weddings!

A GREAT Reason For Being Away

My newest little one arrived on September 17, 2008.  Ty is our new baby boy who is already a whopping 4 weeks old!  I’m officially back on track now (well, sort of!) and will be working on a fabulous November wedding to share with everyone.

Here is a picture of baby Ty with Big Sister Teya

Halloween Craft

I wanted to pass along this cute craft idea I received via a Paper Source e-mail…Long gone have been the days when kids make their own bags for trick-or-treating so this is so refreshing and fun!

Don’t send your favorite ghoul out with any old trick or treat bag, with out trick or treat kit, they can make one that goes with their costume instead. These keen bags are so easy to make and with a little help they will keep the kids busy for quite a while… now that’s a good idea.

Picture Perfect

I am so happy for Kym, Charming Events Lead Assistant Coordinator, and her fiance Andrew, for their upcoming wedding in June of 2009.  What a spectacular event they have in store for their family and friends! 

Some of their engagement pictures were just posted by the lovely and super-talented Trista Lerit via her blog and they are fantastic!  Kym & Andrew are a gorgeous couple and Trista really captured their playful, and outgoing personalities.

More wedding detail updates to come!
