Once in a while, you come across someone that has an infectious smile … the one you envy … a smile that is always showing and full of joy.  If they smile at you, there’s no chance that you can’t help but smile back.  If you catch them smiling at each other, there’s no doubt in your heart that they are head over heels in love.  Kristy is one of those people, and Ray definitely brings it out in her.  It’s no wonder these two are perfect for each other.

To the new “Mr. & Mrs. Ray Minehan” — sometimes it is hard to believe that somewhere there is someone waiting for you, but now you both know how inevitable it is and how beautiful fate could be.  May you carry all the colors of love, luck, care, hope and happiness that is in store for both of you, with a blissful life ahead.

My heartfelt thanks to my special team of “Wedding Magicians” for helping me create a memorable Wedding that Kristy & Ray will long remember.

THEIR LOVE STORY

” Over the winter holidays, Rob and I went on a gorgeous vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with his eldest brother Brian, his wife Gail and their kids Sydney and Jon. On 12/26/14 Rob asked if I wanted to wake up early the next morning and watch the sunrise. I wasn’t terribly keen on an early wake up call but I was delighted to soak up a little romance with my love – of course I agreed!  Little did I know what big plans he had in store for us that morning. We strolled along the very desolate beach looking for the perfect place to watch. We walked out onto a tiny peninsula that jetted out into the ocean and sat cuddling with our feet dangling over the rocks. We had a lovely conversation filled with lots of laughs as we checked our iphone apps to see what time the rays were supposed to greet us. The sun had other plans as we watched ominous grey clouds roll in. All I remember is jumping up to suggest we get some breakfast in effort to miss the rain.  I turned around and before I could even process what was happening, Rob was down on one knee. I’ll let him tell the rest…. ‘At sunrise, this morning (12/27/14) at 7:29, on the beginning of a new day, I asked Morgan for a new beginning…. she said YES!!’.  Everyday I look at my beautiful ring and think about how lucky I am that I have Rob, my Beshert (Jewish notion of a soul mate).  We are forever grateful that we both moved 2,000 miles West to find our forever Chicago match. ” — Morgan Tobor Kayman

WITH GRATITUDE

” We want to thank you so very much for all you did in planning our Wedding!  You are/were fabulous;  your knowledge and expertise were so helpful.  But most of all, you made our Wedding Day smooth, effortless and easy.  We actually got to enjoy it.  All your vendor recommendations were spot on too!  My co-workers kept telling me ‘Morgan, you’re so calm”.  My answer was ‘it’s because I have the best, most knowledgable, fun, energetic Coordinator there is!’.  And thank you for your speedy responses, attention to detail, vision, care and love.  Thank you for making our Wedding such a special lifelong memory! ” — Morgan Tobor & Rob Kayman

To Morgan & Rob – Where you invest your Love, you invest your Life.  Wishing you both a lifetime of Love, Happiness & Joy.  MAZEL TOV!!!

And my heartfelt gratitude to my incredible Team of Wedding Pros who helped me make their Wedding a beautiful dream come true – KUDOS!

Dominic_Matt_August_29_2015__0787DOMINIC CAMPODONICO & MATTHEW STITHAM

Dominic and Matt planned a day that would truly give their guests a glimpse into the very best that Wine Country has to offer.  But throughout the entire day there was one thing even more captivating than the sights: the remarkable couple at the center of it all.  Dominic and Matt were beaming with joy and went out of their way to ensure the people they love most had the most incredible evening.

And it only got better from there.  From their emotional ceremony officiated by a special friend to the heartfelt, hilarious toasts and, finally, their very romantic first dance – Dominic and Matt’s day was all about everything that means the most to them – their love for each other and their dedication to their family and friends.

They are two people who would do anything for the people they love; two people whose clear and evident love for each other could soften even the hardest of hearts.  That’s exactly how Dominic and Matt’s day was – a joyous event where the general consensus was that these two people were just made for each other.  When it came to planning their wedding, it was really important to Dominic and Matt that the day was going to be, above all else, a ton of fun … and so we delivered.  From the beginning of the Ceremony, to the Cocktail hour and throughout the Reception, it was a celebration that truly fit the couple.  Because Dominic and Matt, and their lively group of friends, bring the party no matter where they go.  Even better, they make sure to encourage everyone around them to be as happy as they are.  Of course all you needed to do throughout their wedding day was look at both of them and see how truly, visibly in love they were with each other and you couldn’t help but feel great that these two found each other.

To Dominic and Matt, my heartiest congratulations on your marriage and may it be like a cloudless night of sky, filled with sparkling stars of love, joy and care.

My sincerest gratitude to my remarkable “Wedding Dream Team” for helping me create a day they will long remember . . . BRAVO!
