Today’s wedding planner interview is with Angela Christoforo of Elite Wedding and Event Planning, based in Saugerties, New York! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Most people are surprised to learn that I was a paralegal for 13 years. My legal career has given me valuable experience, which I use in my planning business. Contract review is an important aspect in planning. Most couples are unsure of what to look for in reviewing contracts and are happy to have someone with legal experience and knowledge of the industry to take care of all of that for them. While I enjoyed my long career as a paralegal I find my passion is in planning and designing beautiful events. When I’m not helping couples design their weddings I put my creativity to use in planning and designing styled shoot. Organization is second nature to me having worked in an office setting for many years so naturally staying organized and keeping things on track I have a knack for.

As a company we want clients to enjoy all the fun aspects of planning and be able to feel confident knowing we can handle all of the stressful and time consuming details for them. It’s a fun and exciting time in their lives and probably one of the most expensive investments they will ever make in planning an event. They should be able to say it was a piece of cake planning and their wedding day was one of the best days of their lives.

Hello lovelies! Today’s wedding planner interview is with Renae of Beauty and the Details based in New York, NY! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Hi! I’m Renae! A South Florida girl at heart, but New York is my home; my path to love is how I got here. I LOVE love, and I LOVE weddings, and nothing’s sweeter than when two people who love each other get married! But before that happens, there are many details that need tending to, and that’s where I come in! My experience (as planner, project manager and former bride) enables me to take a couple’s vision, pair it with multiple variables, and bring it to life. Timelines, budgets, and vendors are my life. I may be a little obsessed with organization; which is a good thing! I’m passionate about coordinating all the details that create a beautiful day!
