When you’re planning a wedding, things always come in waves.
There are times when you’re busy with work or life and wedding things get pushed to the side. And other times when you’re getting lots of wedding to dos done.
There are moments when it seems like everyone has a question or needs something from you. And others when it’s nice and easy and dare I say, peaceful.
It’s just the way it is.
And the wedding industry is similar. Things also come in waves – new business, opportunities and recognition.
There has been a lot of really exciting events happening here at Mango Muse Events.
The first is an award for the Best Destination Wedding Planner in San Francisco.
We’ve been recognized as a company who goes out of their way to make every wedding day perfect. One who sets the highest standards by pushing creative boundaries within the wedding industry.
And I am so honored to be recognized!
What makes it especially meaningful is that this award comes from a luxury magazine in the UK (LUX Life Magazine), which means we’re not only touching the lives of those based in the US, but worldwide as well.
As a company, we really want to make a difference in the experience a couple has not only at their wedding, but during the planning process.
Your engagement is a happy time, and we work to make sure it is joyful.
Being able to help as many couples as we can worldwide, especially since we are destination wedding planners, has always been our goal. And this recognition means a lot.
I have to also say that we love our clients, every single one.
And as much as I appreciate the recognition from the media and the industry, I LOVE the love we get from our clients.
The heartfelt thank yous shared during a wedding reception speech, the sweet notes and the amazing feedback we get after the wedding. We’ve had some especially amazing moments recently and I’m so pleased and honored.
“Thank you for everything, you are the bomb dot com.”
“We couldn’t ask for or dream of a better wedding”
“The only thing I would have changed was to hire you right from the beginning. Thank you so much, we couldn’t have done it without you.”
Wow. It’s amazing!
But, if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also been featured in in Destination I Do Magazine for our destination wedding shoot in Croatia. Yes, Croatia!
Croatia is an up and coming destination wedding location and we wanted to show couples what could be done in this beautiful country.
Croatia is one of those destinations where you could easily have your destination wedding and then honeymoon all in the same country.
You can explore the land and the sea. It lends itself so well to both leisurely travel and major site seeing. There’s both nature and history. And so much more!
And we wanted to share all of that.
I’m not going to lie, creating this destination wedding shoot was a challenge. As with all destination locations that are more remote and less frequented, finding and creating something new and fresh can be difficult.
We definitely had our hurdles, but in the end it all came together.
An intimate ceremony showcased the beautiful Croatian stone decorated with trailing greenery, a striking blue aisle and a happy couple. The colorful seaside reception on a yacht had all the feels, including a gorgeous sunset.
Not to mention all the special moments and details in between.
