Where Are They Now- Tina & Joe

Over the last 16 years, All Events Planned has helped a countless number of couples with their wedding day. We have been there from the start to finish of the planning, wedding ceremony and reception. For the wedding planner, that is where it ends, but for the bride and groom, that is just where it starts.

With this in mind, we thought it would be fun to follow up with some of our past couples and see where they are now and how life has been since we said good-bye the night of the wedding reception.

The first couple we followed up with was Joe and Tina whose wedding was in 2010 at Park Lane Villa.  They had a glamours wedding at this amazing venue with a Sinatra Duo singing during cocktail hour to a crystal coated cake.  

Q: What was the most memorable part of the ceremony?
A: The exchange of vows was the most memorable part of the ceremony for us.

Q: Before the exchange of vows, there was the planning. What was fun part of the planning?
A: Cake tasting and checking out various venues for the reception!

Q: Most stressful part of planning?
A: The stressful side of planning was definitely dealing with our families, moms, who gets involved with the wedding details and the guest list.

Q: What advice do you have for brides currently planning their weddings?
A: Be organized, you can never start too early in the planning process.

Q: While overall Tina loved everything about her wedding day, if she had to change one thing it would have been….
A: We would have had our photographer make a wedding album. I was given a CD-ROM with full rights but I never found time to get an actual album made.

The wedding and reception is over and you’re finally married! The first day of married life is magical right?

Q: How did you feel the day after your wedding?
A: We were crazy tired.

That doesn’t mean that marriage hasn’t been fun for them, because it has.

Q: What has changed since your wedding day?
A: Since our wedding, we have enjoyed traveling together to Vancouver, British Columbia, Ireland and other places. On top of that, we have recently moved and welcomed our first child into the world, Baby Joe, who is now 19 months old.

With all that has transpired over 6 years of marriage and 10 years of being together, they had this advice to share with newlywed coupes….

 “Slow down and enjoy each other before jumping on the baby train.”

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, Tina and Joe! We wish you many more years of happiness!

Top 5 First Dance Moments from All Events Planned Weddings

Top 5 First Dance Moments from All Events Planned Weddings

You did it! You are officially married and ready to celebrate married life. However, before everyone can join in the celebration, the couple gets to have their first dance. The timeless wedding tradition symbolizing the couple coming together as one to share a dance alone with family and friends surrounding them smiling. It’s always fun to see what the couple will do; a serious choreographed dance, something silly or simply holding each other swaying to the music.

Over the years, we have seen some very sweet first dances and are lucky enough to share them.

In 2010, Lisa and Josh share a laugh during their first dance at the Conrad Botzum Farmstead.

In 2011, at the Club at Key Center, Nataya and Louis shared a romantic kiss during their time alone on the dance floor.

A Classic Wedding at the Old Courthouse

On April 2, All Events Planned helped Alana and David with their beautiful wedding at the Old Courthouse. The couple chose a classic color palette for their wedding featuring golds, creams and purples. Gold table cloths and cream napkins were the perfect backdrop for the mix of high and low floral centerpieces. Whether you were seated at a table with stunning gold candelabras or a classic arrangement, the mix of white and purple hydrangeas and roses were perfection!
