She obliged me in answering a few questions about her wedding planning experience.
1. What five words could you use to describe your wedding? Fun, exhausting, crazy, surprising, and exciting.2. What has been your best wedding planning experience so far? This is kind of pathetic, but finding my wedding shoes. I'm not even a shoe person, but these were so amazing and exactly what I had in mind, and they were on sale for 80% off. I still get excited looking at them. Also, finding the perfect reception site - it has absolutely everything we wanted without breaking the bank.
3. Can you give one bit of advice for other brides planning? Be flexible. Almost all of the ideas I had at the beginning of the planning have been tweaked, changed or dropped completely, including my vision of the perfect dress for me. Be willing to look outside of your "perfect day" plan and be willing to think a little outside of your comfort zone on some things.
4. What is the one detail you couldn't do without for your wedding day? A wedding planner. I am constantly late, and easily overstressed, so having a wedding planner is a Godsend for keeping me on track with what needs to be done and making sure I don't have to do anything but enjoy myself on my wedding day. That and a really fantastic pair of wedding shoes ;)

I know that many of you have probably donated to the recent earthquake recovery efforts for Haiti, but please let us not overlook this new tragedy in Chile.
Heidi has offered the opportunity to have a photo shoot where 100% of the proceeds go towards relief efforts of her country. For all of you brides considering boudoir shoots, or perhaps know family members that would like a portrait session, this is a chance to help this nation. For more information, please check out her out here.
If you are not looking for a photo session, there is also an opportunity to give a few dollars via the Paypal account firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can, skip the lattes or your lunch out, and donate those few dollars to someone in need of food and water, shelter, and clean clothes.
Anything you do to contribute will make a difference in a person's life.
