WEDDINGS | 5 Things to Consider When Hiring a Wedding Planner (and 5 major misconceptions!)
As women, we are caregivers, we are lovers, we can even be enablers and coddlers (I’m guilty of this too!). Because we are also unicorns and possess the magical powers of multitasking, we give and we give - and in my opinion, we can sometimes give too much, too often.

A seasoned wedding planner is something that is harder to come by than you might think - there are unfortunately a ton of frauds out there who are just not qualified. I always say - wedding planning is not for the faint of heart, and that is why we only hire less than 10% of the interns that train with LW - it just isn’t for everyone.

Because the person you choose to the be the “glue that holds it all together” should be “the one” - exactly like you will choose your perfect wedding dress, or hey - even how you chose the perfect man to spend the rest of your life with.

LIFESTYLE | LW Book Club: December Reads
As Co-Director of ABC Orange County this year, I had the honor and privilege of planning two of our eleven events - our Kickoff January Meeting at Fete the Venue, and our 9th Annual Trendsetter Gala, which was held last week at Soka University.
With 37 vendors, a logistically challenging alternative space as our venue (see below to see what I mean!), an awards ceremony, fashion show, dancers, artists, 300 guests in attendance and three outfit changes (so extra, right?! lol), this was hands down the most detailed event I’ve ever had the honor of planning.
FASHION + TRAVEL | New York Lifestyle Shoot + My Crazy Month of October!
When I was a little girl, I was a TOTAL nerd. I mean it. I would read 5 or 6 books simultaneously, switching off between books whenever I wanted a change. Bookmarked + dog-eared, I would never lose track of the stories. I was able to bounce back and forth and keep every story straight.
The month of October started in New York. Literally - I took a red eye out of LAX on September 30th and landed early morning in NY on October 1st lol. While there, we executed the most amazing styled shoot with Twah Photography and Designs By Ahn out in Upstate New York at a beautiful private barn out in the countryside.
