Congrats To Malinda Williams and Derrick Jones!

Well the dynamic couple finally tied the knot this weekend! It was the perfect ending to a long time in planning. Malinda walked with such grace and confidence down the aisle to her beloved Derrick. It was like watching a movie. Derrick's expression as he waited for her was like he had seen her for the first time. The song "Evergreen" was played by a wonderful Harpist. You arms would have had goose bumps. I am one who believes that one's "perfect" is different than the others. This was a perfect moment for the both of them. It was apparent to see the love in that room. I hardly get a chance to watch my clients walk down the aisle without being pulled in a million directions. This was a treat. There is always something special with every wedding I plan where I walk away feeling as complete as my clients. I am not sure if it means I am confident that the couple is happy and we can now celebrate the intense amount of planning, or that we both feel the pressure of getting there at ease. Whatever it is I felt it more than ever on Saturday night. I know that everyone has been dying to see photos and to hear the entire story. I can only tell you keep an eye on and the magazine. The photographers were on the couple and their surroundings non-stop. I am sure the photos are going to be priceless. I will share some later as I want to respect Malinda's agreement with Essence. I know that some of you are disappointed with me doing celebrity weddings or events. You have written about this directly to me or posted elsewhere. I want you to know this is not new for me. I have always been involved on some level. I also want you to know that I will continue to work with any budget. I try very hard to keep some of my work private due to my clients request. Everyone deserves privacy right? I do not even mention most of our clients for that very reason. I hope that you will understand there are many things about my business or personal life that are not exactly the way you see or think. Most of the time, I am not afraid to give information. I do feel there are times where it may not be appropriate. I am so thankful for the support you have given me. Without your letters or comments to stay strong, I would have a much harder time getting adjusted. It's nice to know that there are so many people who believe in me. I do not ever want to destroy that support! Your letters and emails are priceless. I am getting into more of the media side of the industry and I really like it. I love giving advice on what's new and trendy. I never thought I would say I enjoy writing but I do. I look forward to sharing my successes with all of you very soon. My successes are also yours! We celebrate together! I want to thank Lisa from A Touch of Elegance for the amazing florals. Frungillos Catering Jerry and Ben who made this event happen! Bob from Visions Lighting who watches out for me where-ever I go. He says something positive when things are not at their best! I always need that reminder so thank you! Thank you to Melissa and Adhari for your great back up support at the wedding. Most of all thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Derrick Jones for believing in my ability. You both were extremely non-judgemental, not demanding and very trusting. That is what makes me tick!

Amazing job, Samantha! :-)

It was a beautiful wedding.

I devote my time to ensuring our clients recieve fab service. There's another "calling" for me. To give back to my peers that aspire to be the next "best" fancy pants somebody! Those who play it safe standing behind me, will fail. I do serve as a warning to others and yes, I'm nutty. It's who I am & it's not going to change, as it works. Feel free to comment & join me on what could be the best road trip EVER!

Not That Sassi Planner Again???
