Congratulations to the happy couple! As you can see it was another beautiful day in paradise. This month marks the third anniversary of collaboration between wedding planner Teresa Brunner and I. Teresa launched her company, Tropical DMC, in 2006 after 8 years of working in the hospitality industry. From the very first project Teresa hired me for; a large scale wedding with a NYC design industry bride and highly detailed decor, held at one of the most exclusive and expansive villas in the Turks and Caicos, we bonded. The week long production, full of electrical overloads and various other noteworthy challenges, proved we had a fantastic working dynamic. Teresa amazed me with her sense of style, her people and problem solving skills, but it was her brilliant sense of humor that assured me I would work with her on any future project.
Our wedding today was assisted by a new intern, Jessica, a 15 year old student at the Collegiate. Jessica did a stellar job on her first day and her excitement was completely contagious. When asked why she was interested in wedding planning, she responded that she enjoyed being creative, liked helping people, and felt it was an out of the ordinary job that would be far from boring. At the end of the day, when asked her if wedding planning was what she expected, her answer was already written over her beaming face, in her enormous smile. She absolutely loved being a part of the action, part of making this moment memorable for the couple and beautifully designed for the enjoyment of all present. The ceremony took place in front of the Sands resort and a tented beach reception followed at Bay Bistro.
