Giveaway Day 17 #averydetailschristmas

I know you all have been missing the daily giveaways the last three days! Well, we are combing some of my favorite things to give you something wonderful!

Every day has been about one of my favorite things, today is no different. We are just putting THREE of my favorite “things” together. I love, love, love, love, love (get it) LOVE my photographer. I call her MY photographer because when it comes to my professional photos, she is the go to. I know that Lauren will capture the pure essence of whatever special occasion is happening. I found Lauren on the internet back in 2011 and called for a session. She is the sweetest person I had ever met! Finding out that she was from Ohio and fairly new to Alabama like myself was the icing on the cake! We finally got our shoot in November of 2012, a couple sessions. We got engaged in February of 2013 and she of course did our engagement and wedding. She has also done the wonderful head shots you find on the website. I know that we will have many, many more sessions with Lauren as we continue on in life.

When you meet a professional in the wedding industry that is super talented, loving, kind, and has an amazing soul, you want to want them to do every wedding and/or event with you! I met Jacqueline during the planning of my wedding. She did the hair for some of my bridesmaids. She arrived at my house for the trial very prompt and was fast, efficient, and of course a pleasure! When she left, I said to the bridesmaid Jessica, I love her! She was on Team Summit for the Style the Aisle event that we participated in this past October. She is a wonderful hair stylist who I have had the pleasure of doing my hair as well! Again, LOVE!

I sense you may know where I may going next, make-up. Stacey over the past year has become one of my dear friends who I LOVE to pieces. We probably talk through some form of communication at bare minimum 4-5 times a week. I started following Stacey on Facebook after seeing her work on another photographer’s site. The first time I met her in person was because she won my very first giveaway from Details. We met and talked for a good 30 minutes. Again, I walked away like okay I really like her. We also got to work together on the Style the Aisle event this October. She is an impeccable make-up artist.

All three of these women are head-over-heels in love with their craft. They are some of the sweetest women I am fortunate enough to call my “co-workers” in this crazy thing we call the wedding industry.

Okay, I know you are tired of me talking and want to know what today’s giveaway is. Well today my friends, you probably have guessed it right! Enter to win a FREE engagement session from photography from Lauren Tomasella Photography, hair by Jacqueline Guise-Bridal Hair,  make-up by The Beauty Enhancement by Stacey Spearman, and designed/styled by Details Events and Designs!

Giveaway Day Eight #averydetailschristmas

I am so excited about today’s giveaway because again I LOVE to read. I don’t get to read as much as I would like or what I am used to now. Maybe that can be one of my New Year’s resolutions. I continue to hear great things about a book and it peaked my interest not only as a wedding planner, but a newly married woman. The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman. I knew I wanted to give books about love and/or marriage away during the giveaways. I needed to at least start reading the book to have reference to it. Well, I went online and saw there are copies for men and women, PERFECT. I ordered two of each, a copy for my husband and myself. I have started my book and love it so far.

As a wedding planner, I love to help people bring together the details of their lives to a unique blend that will start what will be their forever. It’s not all about the party for me. I want to look at my list of brides in twenty years and see long-lasting, loving relationships. Any small thing I can do in the planning part (when things can get kind of hairy) to help my couples to continue to remember the reason why they are at this point, I do. Today, enter to win your own set of The 5 Love Languages!


You may enter via Facebook and/or Instagram. You can do booth for DOUBLE entries! Enter until 10:00 pm tonight and winner announced at 10:30 pm.

Giveaway Day Two of #AVeryDetailsChristmas

Day one was great! Here we are at day two.

I have a little obsession with Emily Ley. Who is Emily Ley you ask because you have been hiding under a rock? She is a designer I love because not only does she make beautiful things, she makes them with a purpose to help you simplify life. I started following her work a little over year ago and immediately wanted one of her coveted SIMPLIFIED PLANNERS. As an event planner, you have to be organized. I struggled to find a planner that could let me write everything down in a world where technology rules. There it stood in all it’s glory…the simplified planner, SOLD OUT.

I marked my calendar for September 3, 2014 to be one of the first to order my planner for 2015. The day of my purchase, I saw a local store carried them, Sweet Pineapple Home. I went in because there are several other items I wanted to get from Emily Ley but wanted to see first hand. To the store I went and left with a print that is today’s giveaway. “DO WHAT MATTERS FORGET THE REST.”  It wasn’t the first time I had seen the print, but that day a light bulb went off.

We live in such a fast paced environment and everything is wanted “right now!” This print among a few others I have in my office from Emily Ley remind me to really just slow down. When I find myself in a torn place overwhelmed, I remember to “Do what matters forget the rest.”

Okay so I can’t hold it any longer. A couple of weeks ago I had the idea of doing “Andrea’s Favorite Things” a much smaller version of what the famous Oprah has done in past years. Why you ask, well Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. As I am typing the song It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year is playing in the background. What better way to start prepping for the holidays by giving away some of my favorite things? Every day I will be posting a blog on what my favorite thing is in the morning and drawing a winner every night! You really don’t want to miss what I have in store for you! #averyDETAILSchristmas is coming soon!
