Earlier today I tagged along with my friends Mike Flanagan & Courtney Bell, who are directing and producing the documentary “American Marriage,” as they interviewed, Mindy Weiss in her Beverly Hills office. Mindy is one of the top wedding/party planners in the industry. Her past clients have include some of the top names in the entertainment industry such as Eva Longoria, Gwen Stefani, and Ellen Degeneres.
Mindy gave us some great insight about wedding industry with her many years of experience. During the interview I spent most of the time tip-toeing around her office shooting stills. I was so nervous everytime I pressed the shutter, scared that the sound would be picked up by the microphone. While I was taking photos I also got to listen in on the interview. One thing she said really resonated with me. She said one of the things she likes best about weddings the feelings of romance and intimacy that are evident in the couple, which in turn renews her romance to her husband. I feel the same way: each time I come home from a wedding I can’t wait to kiss my wife.
Here are a couple stills from the interview.
If you are a bride reading this blog, make sure you go pick up a copy of her book “The Wedding Book” on Amazon or your local bookstore.
Also go check out Mindy’s video podcast “Dress The Table with Mindy Weiss – Valentine’s Day” about using some items picked at a local flea market for decoration. Watching her podcast made me miss my weekly Sunday trips to the flea market we did when I was growing up.
