Chandelier Events Plans US Weekly/ Dream Wedding

Get ready for vows that will WOW!

On September 27th, Us Magazine & (with planning by yours truly) will gift Van Ngo & Eric Oberly with a Washington DC wedding worth over $100,000. This week, we toured the beautiful, star-studded venue for the ceremony & reception -- The Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center -- where we tasted their delectable dishes (risotto, filet & lobster tail, chocolate cheese cake towers, yum!), and laid out the floorplans and florals. Then, we visited Janet Flowers, the uber talented design pro (who designs for Ben Stiller & Beyonce) who plans to deck the Pavilion room out in the most gorgeous lush florals and one-of-a-kind wrought iron pieces and custom terracotta and chestnut damask linens by DC Rentals.

Pick up this week's US Weekly Magazine for the inside scoop on Van's Vera Wang gown, custom invitations by Ceci New York, cake by Sylvia Weinstock, entertainment by Elan Artists, jewels by Tacori, and more!

And log onto and (by for regular planning updates from the insane team of celebrity pros!
We promise to keep you posted on all the gorgeous details we're pulling together for this truly deserving couple.

Bling, Bling! Rent these $11,250 Diamond Stunners...for $350

Broke the bank on that gorgeous gown and over-the-top centerpieces? Well, for my glamour gals out there--there's no need to worry about skimping on your accessories. Thanks to Adorn Brides, a new luxury jewelry rental company, you can now RENT these ridiculously beautiful baubles (yes, they are real) through The Knot Wedding Shop.

Adorn Brides' pieces range in retail value from a few thousand dollars to over $100,000 smackeroos. But, you can rent them for the fraction of the price. The insurance is included in the rental price--and covers the jewels during shipping and in your possession (although, you must give it back, i knowthere is a deductable if it's not returned).

So, deck yourselves out--and don't feel guilty. You saved your dad $10,900.

Hello Brides!

Bring your lunch to work next Wednesday, August 19th. Chow down at your desk and turn the speakers up to view me (yes, me!) and my client, Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter/style icon Lisa Loeb as we dish the details of her wedding on The Knot LIVE!, the new show that airs live on mega wedsite every Wednesday at Noon ET.

Happily married, Lisa is so lovely to join me and Knot editor Anja Winnika to talk about how we planned her winter wedding in a record-breaking three weeks, packed it with details, and stayed on--yes --a budget. Tons of eye candy from the magnificent photo team of Nicole Wolf at SOTA Zine and Justine Ungaro.

Plus, I'll talk about the importance of wedding-day photo shoots and provide some insider tips on what I think makes for a successful event--and how you can make big impacts with style without breaking your budget.

Spread the word!
