Season 2:

Weddings have really changed over the past several years. Couples are stepping away from the traditional wedding atmosphere and really interjecting their personalities into their wedding celebration. 

One of the big trends that we have seen is creating a unique experience for wedding guests through live entertainment. There are so many different types of live entertainment that couples can have. However, in this episode, we are going to talk about one that allows you to have a keepsake after the wedding and that in live painting!

We have with us, Amanda Rainear who is the event manager for Event Painting by Jamie, which provides one of kind paintings of a couple’s wedding day. 


Weddings are unique in the fact that you will be hiring multi vendors in order to make you wedding day come together. This can get a little overwhelming and you may not know where to start or what to look for. In this episode, we are going to be talking with Beth McIntrye of Your Favorite Day on how to find your perfect vendor team.


We live in such a digital world which means that in most of the photos that we take are stuff on smartphones or on a computer. Unfortunately, this often is the case with wedding photos. In this episode, we are talking about why you should consider printing your wedding images with Marjorie and Nick Durante of Sophia’s Art Photography.


The day of your wedding, you are going to want to look your best. You have the perfect dress and accessories but it’s your hair and makeup that will pull your whole look together. In this episode, we are going to be talking with Jasmine Doublette of Jazz It Up Artistry about what to look for when hiring a professional hair and makeup team for your wedding day. 


Boudoir photography has become popular over the past several years and a session can be a very empowering. However, because it usually involves little clothing, your nerves can get the best of you. In this episode, we are talking to Bumby Grimm of BB by Bumby on how to calm your nerves so you can fully enjoy your boudoir session.

 


Wedding photography usually ranks pretty high on couples list of priorities for their wedding. When it comes interviewing your wedding photographer, there are those questions that couples always ask, like how many photographers will be shooting my wedding or how long are you photographing but there are also questions that are just as important that couples never think to ask their potential photographers. In this episode, we are going to be talking with Steve Miller of Steven Miller Photography about why these questions are so important. 


There is so much that goes into planning a wedding and you want to make sure that everything goes off without a hitch but you also want to enjoy the day.

Weddings are one of those events that flowers thrive. From bouquets to table centerpieces and everywhere in between, flowers can definitely add that special celebratory touch to your wedding. In this episode, we are talking with Afton Johnson of Fern and Curl Designs about unique ways to include flowers into your wedding. 


Many couples exchange gifts on their wedding day and are looking for something special and personalized. What could be more special than a beautiful photo album of your boudoir session? Brides are finding that this isn’t just a gift for their future spouse but an empowering gift for themselves. If you’re thinking this would be something you’d like to do but aren’t sure what to expect in a boudoir session, Ashley of Ashley Jane Photography gives us some great insight in this episode!


From the dress to your accessories, you’ve probably envisioned your wedding day look.  However, it’s your hair and makeup that will really pull the whole look together. Even if you have gotten your hair and makeup professionally done in the past, let say for prom or another special event or maybe you were a bridesmaid in the past, getting these services done as a bride is a little bit different.

In this episode, we are going to be talking to Mandi Neuhardt of Beauty Brigade about the process of hiring a hair and makeup artist for your wedding day.

Listen to Season 1:

Booking your wedding venue will most likely be the first thing you do in planning your wedding. Here are some questions that you need to ask each venue you visit before you book. 


You may not be able to physically include all those that you love in your Orlando wedding planning process but you can certainly include them virtually! Having a wedding website gives you the chance to have a little piece of the internet devoted to your wedding that you can share with your guests throughout the process. Keeping them in the loop is now easier than ever but there are definitely certain things that you want to include on your wedding website.


Today, everyone has a camera in their pocket, always ready to capture every moment. What could be a more special moment then when you say “I Do”? However, more and more couples are asking their guests to put their phones and cameras away to enjoy the moment.

In this episode, we are talking with Rudy of Rudy and Marta Photography about what an unplugged ceremony is and if you should consider one.
