I had the pleasure of meeting Kathy Valdez, the designer/owner of Concepts in Blooms,  at an ABC event this week, and I wanted to introduce her to you all.   If you’re planning a New Jersey Wedding (smooth, eh?) you’ll want to get to know her; she can help you create a wedding that is exactly what you envision.  Many of my couples think that hiring a planner is going to be an added expense that they can’t manage, but a savvy planner with good connections and experience can actually save you money, and make your wedding day much less stressful.        Kathy has been part of the event management industry for over a decade, and has designed events  throughout the United States and Europe with budgets ranging from $5,000 to over $1,000,000. Her commitment, attention to detail, and dedication are legendary, and led to her work decorating  the homes of several Major League Baseball players.   She has a beautiful website and a terrific blog, spotlighting some very neat vendors.  I think you’ll enjoy virtually meeting her and having her be part of your celebration.
