Carmen’s philosophy has always been, “What’s a little sacrifice, if you can exchange it for the guilty little pleasures in life?” She starts off every morning checking her emails even before getting out of bed. In the mid-afternoon, it is likely you will find her enjoying a grande Caramel Macchiato at Starbucks while working away on her computer, or reading up on recent wedding fashion trends. In the evenings you may see her trying out various culinary delights before meeting clients and vendors. She works hard, so that she can enjoy what she really likes: fancy attire, classy restaurants, and anything that’s exquisitely European. In fact, her artistic nature brought her to the Michaelangelo-designed Villa San Michele for her own wedding in Florence, Italy on May 5th, 2010. Here is a sneak-peek as to how a wedding planner does her own wedding: http://vimeo.com/12126516
