Roxanna & Carlos – February 23, 2019; Glamis Sand Dunes

I met the bride, Roxanna through her booking her wedding at Sacred Mountain. From there, she booked me as her Wedding Coordinator, and the planning began! She was interested in assisting me at a wedding and getting to see the backend of what goes into making a wedding magical, so I had her help me at one of my Sacred Mountain weddings! From there our friendship grew! The photographer for this shoot, Kari Martinez, actually reached out to me to plan a shoot together! She found me from the...

Bahia Resort Styled Shoot – 12/10/18

This was the first Styled Shoot that I planned so I went into it with no major expectations on myself. For me a styled shoot is a great opportunity to connect with vendors, experience a new venue, add my own personal design into the concept, and grow my portfolio! I had met for coffee with Chelsea from Chelsea Rose Beauty and we had just decided to go for it! For this first shoot, it was so nice to plan with someone and have someone to bounce ideas off...

Steph + Mike – August 29, 2018

Steph & Mike toured a year before they finally popped back up in my inbox ready to book Sacred Mountain. Right before their tour we began to get very popular and were booking many tours. We were attempting to see how tours would go if we schedule two couples at the same, or even three. Very quickly we found out that it’s best to have each couple tour by themselves to ensure they are getting the attention they deserve. It just so happens that Steph & Mike toured...

Matt + Megan – August 25, 2018

Wow oh wow oh wow. Where to begin?! Planning my own wedding-- Okay, not going to lie: I had no idea how much work this was! Helping the bride coordinate and telling her what she needs to do is MUCH different than actually doing it yourself. And I mean okay, all the big things: securing the vendors, paying them, sure-- that’s easy. It’s the small things!! What jewelry am I going to wear? What shoes? What are my bridesmaids going to wear? Are the groomsmen going to get...

Jeff + Silvia – August 9, 2018

I’m not going to lie to you… this was the hardest wedding I have done. As a newer coordinator this wedding taught me that I need to learn how to say no. I said yes to setting up their cocktail hour food without realizing that this also meant refilling contents, clearing empty bowls, refilling, and clearing again. I offered to MC using Sacred Mountain’s sound system not realizing how much life the DJ gives to a wedding. Lastly, I obliged to set up all chargers, plates, silverware, napkins,...

Brady + Nikki – August 11, 2018

This was definitely one of my favorite weddings and the type of couple that I enjoy coordinating for. Brady & Nikki had a very well thought design and theme for their wedding that was unique to them. Brady has his pilot's license and loves to fly planes & travel. Nikki is of spanish descent and a nurse. They both are happy, positive, encouraging, appreciative, understanding, welcoming, warm, and down to earth people. Their guest book was a Map of the world, drinks were served in syringes, each guest...

Katy + Jamie: August 2, 2018

Katy is the absolute sweetest bride! We had a slight thunder/lightning scare and she was excited and looking forward to the photographs. No matter what the situation, Katy was happy. My favorite part about her was her continual words of affirmation that she gave me at every step of the way. In every email, she encouraged me. With every in person meeting, she lifted me up. She is a constant source of positive energy & love. [caption id="attachment_11764" align="alignnone" width="1024"]  [/caption] I had been emailing with Katy while working for...

Jacque + Gian – Monday, June 4, 2018

When I first started working with Sacred Mountain in January of 2017, Jacque & Gian had toured the venue. They were wonderful, loved the property, but didn’t end up signing after many back & forth communications until finally we just stopped hearing from them. About 6 months later we got an email from Gian saying he was ready to book! I felt like I had just seen a ghost, “he’s back! They’re booking” I exclaimed to our small team with so much excitement. Our most recent policy, at...

Stephanie + Derek – Saturday, June 2, 2018

Just thinking of how to start this blog to describe this couple and so many words come to mind! Wild, Fun, Adventurous, Focused, Sweet, Energetic, Giving, Open Hearted, Welcoming to name a few. After meeting with Steph & Derek at Ballast Point, I left questioning my own relationship. They are both outgoing, fun loving, extroverts. They made getting along, living together, marriage look easy. I wanted to their secret. Is the age old saying, “opposites attract” true? Or do couples who enjoy the same things and have similar...

Chelsea + Ryan – Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Working my typical 9am-5pm in the office of Sacred Mountain, the phone rang. “Sacred Mountain, this is Megan.” I answered in my typical response the same way I do when anyone calls. Chelsea began asking the typical questions about what it would entail to have a wedding at SM. Lately, we had been questioning brides about their budget to ensure that before inviting them to the property for an hour long tour, they could afford the venue. Her answer was not typical, “honestly, at this point, I would...
