Watch What Really Happens Behind the Scenes 2011

It’s pretty interesting to see what really happens behind scenes for each wedding. This year we were constantly running.

Each year as I go through many images, I begin to think about the funny moments and the many dresses I had to repeat because many of my couples loved the same colors (“PURPLE”). I think the cleaners held one of my purple dresses hostage because every time I go they can’t seem to locate it. So please excuse me if you see the same dresses repeated. Maybe you can help me retire them for 2012! Hahaha! Oh and you won't ever get tired of seeing my staff Manny, Jenny, Lizette, Cynthia, Rochelle and former employee Normel.

You'll also capture some shots of our wonderful vendors.

I have no idea what I was laughing about but it sure was funny!
Manny always takes great care of the brides
