Brooke and Bennett: First comes love, then comes marriage…

Hello all and welcome to our blog!

As wedding planners we are able to meet wonderful people from all over the world and spend time with them during one of the most trying times of their life. We strive to make this process as happy and stress-free as possible. We are always inspired and grateful for each one of our amazing clients and we figured it was about time to share our stories with the world.

On this blog we will share with you our experiences, expertise, and inspirations.

We would love to hear from all of you, please feel free to write us! Thank you and we hope you enjoy it!


It all started in 2007 when a beautiful girl named Brooke fell in love with a skater boy name Bennett. Seven years later on November 20, 2014 Bennett Bernard proposed to his high school sweetheart at the Griffith Park Observatory in Los Angeles. After Sixteen months of planning and preparation they said their “I Do’s” in front of all their family and friends at the Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano. Today, one year after their wedding we are proud to announce that they are expecting their first child!

Happy Anniversary and Congratulations Brooke and Bennett!!!

Below are some of our absolute favorite moments from their special day!

A unique idea to get the people at each table talking!

Have a song assigned to each table describing the guests themselves or your relationship to them!
