Wedding Overdose Blog bio picture
  • Welcome

    Welcome! This blog will take you through the path of one of my craziest addictions and to show you how there is no turning back once you’ve had that one hit. I will give you a sneak peak of the behind the scenes and an upfront and personal of many designs and imaginative ideas. Elations Designs is a wedding and event planning company that I created eight years ago. Throughout the years, weddings have evolved into something major and amazing. I have just continued to move forward with the trends and work to be more creative and innovative. No cookie cutters or imitations. What you will see is the real thing. One hit and the rest is history.

    I travel across the country to share my addiction of weddings and events. So if you are planning a destination wedding contact me and I will be there.

Children Party Planner

Now I would never in a million years say I would plan a party for a child.  I have been around a handful to know they are the most smartest species on earth.  They know what they want and are determined to get it any way they can.  I am so fascinated by the innocence and purity of children.  I was a volunteer reader for first and second graders for a few years in the past.  That by far was one of the most fun times of my day.  It was always the perfect excuse to leave work and meet up with the kids.

This summer I carefully planned two first year parties (one of which was for my very own baby girl!) and one for a three year old.  What a joy it was for me.

10 Year Wedding Anniversary – Richmond Wedding Planner

Why do we love love?

Thank you my love for sharing so much of you with me.  The most precious gift in my life has come out of your love for me. Celebrating this special occasion has been both fulfilling and gratifying.

10 years has taught us that the real work comes after the “I Do”.  Love unconditionally and love hard.  Yes God’s word is true. Love is patient and Love is Kind.

Peace of Mind- It’s Free

I am usually the one out of my group of friends who challenges everyone to think deeper.  Not sure why I always do this but it typically comes at the end of a really hard day at work.  I get beat up usually with my family and friend’s resistance such as, “But why now?… It’s been a long day….alright lets hear it”.  One day when I have a little down time I will get down to the bottom of why I tend to challenge everyone .  I can go on and make a number of assumptions but again that would be me challenging again.  For now I want to blame it on needing to balance work and real life.

Yesterday evening I had a heartfelt conversation with a total stranger…Yes I do that often.  The conversation started off about our creative work and then lead into what really matters to us at the end of the day.  My thoughts covered having peace of mind knowing you are doing what you want and how you want to.  I wasn’t hesitant to say, “You have to be happy with what you do and you have to do it for yourself and anyone that matters the most to you….nothing more/nothing less”.  Everyone will have their opinion about what you should be doing and how you should be.  I say go against the grain and do what makes you Happy.  There is no cost to this and you have nothing to lose.

This song coming from the mouth of a child brought me back to my conversation earlier. Thank you for pouring your heart into this song Willow Smith.
