The Robbers of the Present are the Past and the Future

Well hello again!!!

So I'm back in LA and here on set. One of my crew members just chimed in with, “The robbers of the present are the past and the future”. OMG, I have to agree!! And it really got me thinking about all of the wonderful brides I've met along the way. It's funny, my bride's are always thanking ME, but what they don't realize is that they are on a daily basis teaching me and to be honest, THEY ARE THE ONES HELPING ME! Their challenges, their dreams, their hearts ... they've each impacted my life and I'll be forever grateful of each and every one of them!!

A client once stopped me and said, "David, one of the things you have to remember to do is to stop and smell the roses”. It doesn’t mean we need to LITERALLY smell roses but we DO need to pause and enjoy what we are doing, while we do it. My point is everything in life is what you make of it. In a business like mine there are always challenging moments but I’ve been teaching myself to think, “The moment isn’t a struggle, the moment is a success” and ENJOY it all instead of driving myself crazy. I have to say, it has made life so much more easy, breezey and magical!

So no matter where you are or what you're doing, never ever forget to stop and SMELL THOSE ROSES, girls!!!

xoxo,
David

  1. Thank you so much for your message. David, I am an up and coming eventplanner and I have watched numerous of episodes of "My Fair Wedding" to gain tips from you. I even purchased a few of your books, such as, "A Passion for Parties," and "Big Birthdays." I love your concepts! I have one more assignment and I would be a certified event and wedding planner. If you had any advice to give me that would help me build a successful business what would it be?

  2. David,
    Your show has been inspirational. Would you ever consider doing a "my fair prom". My students are all from low socio economic background and school budgets have us really constrained. You planning, designing, and glowing personality could certainly life some spirts at our high School.
