200 Posts & a big Woo~hoo!!!

This is my 200th post! Which, for some reason, really excites me. So, I am going to do a giveaway to celebrate. More info below.

I finally found my camera battery charger, so without further delay, here is a look into our Ceremony Magazine features:

Jennifer and Michael's four page spread, with photos by Chenin Boutwell.
You can also see the entire spread online on Ceremony's website . Click here.


I also had a full page ad, which was a first. I loved how it turned out:


I was also honored to have many decor and design ideas featured.


The Orange County edition, as well as the San Diego and LA editions, are in stores now. It is a great magazine- lots of real weddings and good decor inspiration. We are absolutely honored to be featured!

**I am giving away two copies!** To win, just leave a comment telling me what your favorite wedding venue is. Or, if you don't want to, you can just leave me some love. I will choose the two winners this friday, so be sure to enter by noon on the 16th.

Happy Tuesday!

Ooo, I have been looking all over for the new ceremony mag. I have to win! My two favorite venues are Villa del Sol D'oro in Sierra Madre and Rancho Las Lomas in Silverado. Love all the fun nooks and crannies, terra cotta tiles, and Mediterranean architecture. Excited to work with you RLL later this year!

I loved the franciscan gardens in San Juan, it just wasn't big enough for my wedding reception, of course I love my venue, but I would have loved to have the outdoor reception in San Juan :)

I love looking at your blog. I have some wedding/event planning experience. I hired a coordinator for my wedding 2 years ago and it was the best thing I did.
Congrats on your magazine spread. Go you!

My favorite venue is a place called Giorgio's located in Baiting Hollow, Long Island, NY. (It's where I got married). It is a lovely venue on a beautiful golf course on the east end of LI. So, on the drive out to Giorgio's you'll see horses, vineyards, locally grown produce stands. It is just lovely!

congratulations on the super spread!!! I think my fave wedding location is going to be Westmont college on the chapel lawn where my son is getting married in June. 4 1/2 years ago while helping him move into soph dorm, I was walking across the campus when in my mind I saw a wedding taking place ...the same place they are getting married.....I took a closer look and it was HIM...isn't that amazing????
so if I win Celebrations, his sweet fiance will get it :)

ok, so i'm not a wedding planner. i have aspired to be for quite some time, but i'm just not that creative. i did love to plan my own wedding, however we were broke and in love so it wasn't NEARLY what it could have been. my true love is wedding photography (again i'm not great at it... but SOOOO wish i was) i think you are highly talented and i love to soak in your fabulous ideas!

I don't know, I guess I love anything that looks over the ocean. More importantly, I must win so I can get a copy of your "special" magazine. I want to give it back to you in 50 years.
Love ya,

Michelle @ My Wedding Report said...

Congrats! I'm going to get the magazine this weekend, so that way I can soak in all the inspiration without worrying that I am procrastinating school! :)

Favorite venue? Well I of course love the Rancho Bernardo Inn! And then Estancia is amazing!
