It's father's day folks!
My doppelgänger. Seriously. Just imagine me bald. Not too far off. So glad he was able to walk me down the aisle.
Far too many times I've seen my brides not able to have that opportunity. It hurts me to see it, but I’m SO glad they are able to find someone special in their life to walk them down. A mother. A grandparent. A mentor. So when my time came, I remembered to cherish every step.
Love your dear ones. If they are near by, give them a really really strong hug. I promise. You won't regret it.

This weekend I'm off celebrating THIS man. He's my husband, and I don't know what I did to deserve him. It's his 30th birthday, and the weekend is beginning with surprise festivities. ————————-
Sonny isn't your typical ginger. He's got a hot accent and was raised around wildlife. His family runs a Wildlife Reserve in rural Zambia. We one day wish to grow our family there. He's an animation designer for DreamWorks, currently designing all the cars for the new “Fast and the Furious “ animation tv show soon to release on Netflix. I mean this man inspires me and I love him SO much.

Kidding! I DO answer my phone! Kind of. But I promise two things I WILL do with my phone.
1. Return your call right back if it's urgent.
2. Take Lots of Pictures!
📷 In commemoration of National Photography Day, take lots of selfies, take pics of your food, and take pics of your loved ones.
Have a wonderful day!

This is our first year in a few years that we haven't booked any international weddings, and I'm okay with that!
This past year I endured what many would call BURNOUT. Sound familiar anyone? Since then, I’ve made it my intention to work slower and more consciously. That means, for once, traveling but NOT for work! Traveling without the weight of always BEING ON. BEING PERFECT. ✈️
At the end of this month, I'm taking a few days off for a spiritual retreat. This is something i've been putting off for some time, and I'm very much looking forward to it! See more of my adventures on the 28/29/30th, with WANDERLUST presented by SHE of @c3losangeles

We are on our 11th wedding season. That's some 300 plus happy couples. Many of which keep in touch with us to some capacity. We love seeing their growing families and life adventures. It's really fulfilling to know we were a part of that piece of the pie of their life.

At first, I thought I became an event planner so I can exercise my design bone, but really, the whole thing is about PEOPLE. Each wedding has taught us that weddings create memories with the PEOPLE you love. To help orchestrate that feels so momentous.
Pictured here is a wedding we did at the HOME of one of our clients in Pasadena. Now THAT is a way to make memories.

Okay . Confession time.
I have a sugar addiction.
I'm not joking. It's been a problem for years and it really kills my productivity. At first I cut out alcohol and I've felt leaps and bounds better. But the sugar, is something I know I need to cut down as well. It's hard! I need some advice friends.

I mean everything in moderation right? What's a macaron, or two, or three? If I'm to splurge, it would most definitely be with one of my most favorite bakeries and restaurants, @bottegalouie.

Here is a great capture from @briantropiano, when he collaborated with us on this @californiaweddingday story, feauturing Bottega Louie's newest wedding cake line!

I kind of wish a day of the week started with the letter "C", so we can quote "Community over Competition" on the regular. There would be so many fun posts I can theme around that!

This here is a perfect example of community within our industry. Jackie from our #aeteam working with Gabby of @causewecanevents in a styled shoot! This isn't the first time we've collaborated with Gabby. She most recently helped us with Hila and Weston's wedding! Her husband's company @bluefisheventrentals made us a custom chuppah! You can see the full feature on @usweekly! Wedding Professionals... let's do more of this, shall we? 📷 by @michelle.mishina

Los Angeles has made it clear that summer is here! This reminds me of this thirst quenching signature cocktails we had at our most recent Adamson House wedding.

Did you have a signature cocktail at your wedding? Are you a bar snob? We are really into our booze so we'd love to hear more about your favorite drink recipes. Whatever you suggest.
Yes I'll take that, ...plus LOTS of ice. Pronto. Photo by @beauxartsphoto Planning by @amberevents for @adamsonhousewedding

an ode to my desk. Wait ...what desk? We are constantly on the move! Be it working on a desktop screen at home, or a laptop at a coffee shop, we are mobile lil' bunnies going all over LA and beyond to get YOU what you need.

Here is Vanessa, one of our #aeteam members using her artistic skills in making water color stationary for an event we had at King Gillette Ranch. I don't know how she makes crafting look so stylish. When you don't see Vanessa working on the Amber Events blog and curating content, you will probably catch her playing Mickey Mouse at Disneyland. Or training future drummers of america in Drumline. I know. Way too cool for school. We love you Vanessa!

Bourdain.
I’m crushed.
I felt like we’ve been friends for years.
Watched every episode you’ve made for tv.
Just bought another one of your books.
All I ever wanted was to sit with you a Tokyo dive bar and make friends with the locals as you did.
RIP beautiful soul *If you need help please contact the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255 you are not alone and there are people who can help.

Do you ever feel hard on yourself? But do you have fruits of your labor to look back on? I forget at times that I have any proof! Then comes the online reviews. This wedding pictured, was at Union Station here in LA. This beautiful couple now has a little babe, and I love following their insta stories. Here is an excerpt of one that reminds me of why I love to do what I do:

"What I enjoyed MOST about working with Amber Events was that they understood my anti-vortex mindset and was there to be like, "This is what you choose now. Here is a list of 5-10 vendors with this range of prices". Obviously, this sort of planning is not for everyone. Some people want ALL THE OPTIONS. But trust me, you don't want all the options. You know those restaurants with way too many pages of dishes? You're never confident about your choice because you had like 5 back-up options and really only chose the one you did because the waiter needed your order at that moment. Their vendor list and industry connections ALONE are worth it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just look at their portfolio! Amber Events has done beautiful weddings! Do yourself a favor and resist the urge to buy into the madness that is wedding planning. If you can afford a wedding planner, DO IT. In fact, hire Amber Events. Trust. Breathe. Have so much fun at your wedding. And then get back to living your life.”
