From the author
When friends ask why I chose to
write a wedding planner, my response is simply that someone
should learn from my mistakes! As a graphic artist, executive
director and church administrator, I have been involved in
event planning for over 30 years. That includes everything
from the Arizona State Fair to conferences to business
meetings to church gatherings to children's events to family
parties, and, of course, weddings.
In addition to planning and
organizing events, I've designed special wedding invitations,
designed custom wedding jewelry, baked and decorated wedding
cakes, done flower arranging, performed in musical groups,
taken photos professionally and contracted with professional
photographers, worked with videographers to produce
presentations, sewn and designed formalwear, decorated for all
types of events and even worked for a caterer! Somehow wedding
planning seemed a "natural" direction to go.
