You had butterfly’s and warm fuzzy feeling in your heart after you were proposed to, but then the stress & financial burdens of planning a wedding quickly steal those sweet warm feelings. It’s easy to argue when a relationship is put under stress. That’s why today’s wedding tip is all about having an engagement journal.
Buy a journal and put it on your night stand. When your fiance does something thoughtful or you think of something sweet about them. Write it in the journal and either put it on their night stand or give it to them. Then when they notice something about you they will do the same. This is a great way to help you stay close and connected. Being engaged is one of the most exciting times of your life. An engagement journal is a great way to capture those feelings and memories. Also, It’s a great thing to continue to do once your married. You don’t have do write in it everyday. It could be once a month.

Mint themed weddings are a big trend for 2013. Mint looks great paired with gold, silver, white, gray, yellow or coral. We love this refreshing color that can be used both in spring and winter weddings. Mint can be used in modern or vintage themed weddings as well. If you are having a Mint themed wedding you might want to consider mint lighting for your reception. By using mint up-lighting it add a beautiful and fresh look to your reception.

Jen & Mike’s purple & gold wedding theme at the Universal Sheraton was so gorgeous. Jen glowed in her soft white wedding dress with lace sleeves. We love how she flawlessly put together rustic shabby chic elements with some glamour decor. When Jen and Mike were planning their wedding they mentioned they wanted it to be memorable, exciting, detailed, and fun. We feel honored to have been able to fulfill their vision for their wedding through wedding lighting, video, special effects, and a wedding MC & DJ.
Jen really personalized her wedding with special details. She got hand stitched handkerchiefs for her mom and dad with a personalized note saying she will always be their little girl. Their friends and family were so much fun. Alex, J&M’s Wedding MC did a great job bringing together two different cultures into one big happy family while DJ Geno kept them on the dance floor having fun.
Special Thanks to Krista Mason Photography for the beautiful photos and our J&M Entertainment Team: Alex Morales (Wedding MC), Eugenio Bautista (Wedding DJ), Jose Prado (Wedding Lighting Designer), JJ Solorzano (Wedding Technician), Lorena Pineda (Wedding Photo Montage Editor), Pablo Gratas (Wedding Video).

J&M Entertainment’s wedding specialist Sandra Betancourt had the privileged of helping Amanda and Michael with their wedding. Amanda & Michael are the cutest couple! They were high school sweethearts who got reconnected and were married this weekend at The Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. The wedding had a beautiful 60′s theme and was decorated in tiffany blue and red.
One of our favorite moments at Amanda & Michael’s wedding was when the flower girls walked down the red aisle in their cute black dresses and red sunglasses carrying a Tiffany blue bag filled with rose petals. The bridesmaides were beautifully dressed in knee length black dresses with a black lace back and sleeves. Each bridesmaid had a red flower in her hair. During the cocktail hour Amanda & Michael had several games for the kids and the adults to play to get to know each other and wins some prizes.
Their photo montage tribute to their friends & family, which had a Beatles mix soundtrack, drew a lot of “Ooh’s” & “Ahh’s” from the guests as well as some laughter.
The Sportsmen’s Lodge is unique for it’s large sunken dance floor with railings, contrasted with views of ponds and foliage. Amanda and Michael took advantage of the dance floor for their Hora and first dance. The large dance floor offered a special elegance.
Special Thanks to our J&M team: Sandra Betancourt (Wedding Specialist), Dave Mancini (Wedding MC), Eugenio Bautista (Wedding DJ), Chris Golden (Wedding Lighting Designer), and Lorena Pineda (Photo Montage Editor).

Welcome to J&M Entertainment’s Tuesday Wedding Tips at Two.
2013 is transforming wedding reception lounges from simple & expected to chic and adventurous. Brides are getting rid of cocktail tables and replacing them with wedding lounge furniture. It’s all about cozy intimate settings. You can mix and match antique furniture, or go with plush comfy couches & chairs. Think outdoor furniture from better homes and gardens with lovely open air drapery. The idea is to have a unique space for your guests to take amazing photo ops as well as a comfy place to rest and mingle. Add a little mood and ambiance lighting to create the perfect lounge area. We recommend adding pin spot wedding lighting for your centerpieces and LED up lighting, wash lighting or texture lighting for when it gets dark. You still get the rustic garden wedding reception, but at night time you are able to spot light your décor and add to the intimate setting. AV Party Rentals is a great place for lounge furniture and open air drapery. If you need antique shabby chic vintage furniture we recommend Treasures From The Trunk. For pin spot lighting or battery operated LED up lighting call us here at J&M Entertainment.
