She offers a few tips for new brides.

Tip #1: Hire a planner who will help run the photography schedule so that your photographer can take photos instead of managing family and friends.

Tip #2: Less is more.  The smaller the wedding party the more creative your photos can be.

Vendor Spotlight: Kathy G & Co.

Kathy G & Co.  is experienced and well known throughout the catering and design industry. She exceeds her clients expectations and creates for them a one-of-a-kind event and food design that the bride could not have even dreamed of. 

A recent client of her's gushes, "Every dish was absolutely authentic & top-notch - our guests are still raving about the food! - the service was impeccable, & the presentation was stunning. Everyone knows that Kathy G is the queen of catering in Alabama, but with this event I truly believe that you out-did even yourself."

Kathy recommends to newly engaged brides a few tips to get them through the planning process of the wedding: 

Tip #1: The first thing any Bride should do would be to secure your date for your Ceremony &  Reception Venue. Everything else will follow.

Tip #2: Get Organized.  It is so helpful when a Bride comes in to a meeting already having an idea of what she wants. Having a binder or photos of weddings, bouquets and menus gives us a great start to create her vision.
