Wedding Jeannie Is Back!

I’m proud to announce officially that I’m back! The truth is I never left. I was a wedding planner from 2000 to 2013 and then I created a PR & Marketing firm called 3 Wishes PR, representing some of the best companies in the wedding and event industry in 2013. I continued to plan wedding on occasion for families I’d worked for previously. To me that’s the ultimate honor. I’ve had the pleasure of designing and planning multiple weddings for several families. The photo above is one such “family” experience I’ve been lucky to have. It was held in the family’s home and since they are so comfortable with me, they invited me to take a break and cool my feet of with them in the pool. The image is from one my favorite photographers, Joel Maus of Studio EMP. He worked on the other family’s events as well. In fact we brought back almost the entire team from the first daughter’s weddings. Everyone loved working together again, and it made it so much more personal for us.

This year we continue to be referred by colleagues, venues, and previous clients. We decided it was time to update our website and rebrand. The Wedding Jeannie name is well known and we couldn’t bare to part with it, so we are planning under the name of 3 Wishes Events by Wedding Jeannie. Our focus will be on concierge level design and planning services for couples throughout California. We will take a limited amount of events per year, which will allow us to focus our very best efforts to our clients.


Jackie & David Featured 2014 Ceremony Magazine


Wedding Jeannie has been honored with another wedding in print. Ceremony Magazine Orange County has recognized the wedding of Jackie & David as a “Wedding of Distinction”. And we couldn’t agree more. This amazing couple hailed from Chicago, but wanted to marry in Southern California. Jeannie was tasked with the planning for this out of state couple, and with the design of an “Old Mexico” theme, with a “Star Wars” twist.
There was no question that Serra Plaza in San Juan Capistrano would be the perfect setting for this memorable union. Along for the ride was photographer Christopher Todd Griffiths, Jay’s Catering and Heavenly Blooms Florist. Each vendor brought their talent, dedication and commitment to excellence to this day. Wedding Jeannie couldn’t be more proud of this dream team.

Mexican Wedding in San Juan Capistrano

Bride Groom Vintage Car
Meet Jackie and David. It’s a tale of travel and romance. She grew up half of her life in Mexico City and the other in Los Angeles. He grew up in Orange County. They are both lovers of travel. It’s that love that brought them together. They met in the Peace Corps in a foreign country, and fell for each other. Washington DC would be where they ended up. So how did they marry in San Juan Capistrano you ask? Jackie and her family have a deep bond to their Mexican roots, and Jackie wanted to express it through her wedding day. David was happy to comply as long as his love of Star Wars could be weaved into the day. Both got their wish.

Serra Plaza in San Juan Capistrano happened to possess all of the attributes for bringing Old Mexico to Orange County. Enjoy all the details including, a Mexican candy station and a tequila tasting bar. The overall decor and details evoked feelings of romance, rustic elegance, vibrance and joy. That’s everything you would find in a traditional wedding in Mexico City. Mission accomplished! Enjoy the stunning images captured by Christopher Todd Griffiths. He’s a genius with a camera, and I’m so happy he captured the spirit of this day to perfection.
