A Destination Wedding for an amazing Monaco couple, Melissa & Dean by Celebrity Wedding Planner Tiffany Cook

Talk about a destination wedding planning... this couple resides full time in Monaco yet had their amazing wedding in the states! So the majority of my planning was done with the bride & groom from afar yet it seemed as if we were sitting next to each other. Thank god for modern technology! 

What a fabulous couple! Friends and family flew in from all over the world for their 
Alice in Wonderland meets Midsummer Night's Dream destination wedding. The ceremony was held on a private beach with the most beautiful sky.

From a design aspect this wedding was extra fun, being able to create something glamorous yet fun and whimsical was a blast. Using Astro Turf (yes I said Astro Turf) to cover the entire ballroom floor was a career first, but in the end it created the color contrast & impact I was looking for!

To create the stunning design for this reception and customize the look I mixed all types of furniture from the custom acrylic tables we manufactured to mirrored and white tables along with a mix of seating options with chairs and banquette sofas.

Who says you can't mix moss and crystals together, they worked perfectly for our custom table name design. The mix of these elements that you would not normally see together helped create the elegance and whimsy of this wedding design. I love using mixes of textures.

People often ask me what was the most challenging request or the most difficult to deal with for which I rarely have an answer because it is my job to tackle the challenges and deal with difficult. This particular groom put me to the test, he anted to book mLionel Richie for a suprise concert at the wedding. Not a stretch given my background and the amount of celebrity talent I have booked and produced entire concerts for, it was keeping it a secret from his bride. Keeping the secret part wasn't the challenge, but disguising the amount of time it took me to pull off and execute this fabulous surprise for the bride was the challenge. In the end with some creative side stepping (big smile) and a ver funny family friend we were able to completely surprise the bride & the wedding guests with a fantastic concert!

This extremely brave and funny friend of the couple pretended to take the mic and start signing the most awful rendition of a lionel Richie song to which I pretended to try to coax him off stage much to the brides dismay. In the smoothest of transitions flawlessly executed, thanks to my husband John Cook Lionel Richie took the stage right on queue.

Newest Housewife Porsha Stewart's Heartfelt Wedding Review of Tiffany Cook Wedding Planning

 Porsha Stewart's Wedding Review of Tiffany Cook
 Atlanta's Celebrity Wedding Planner

My experience during wedding planning & design with Tiffany Nieves-Cook 
now Tiffany Cook was so enjoyable, relaxing and fun. I have always heard horror stories about planning so I was expecting to have to do it all myself even with a planner. However, with Tiffany the process was just the opposite. I had no Idea the direction I wanted to go in with decor, all I knew is I wanted fabulous and over the top luxury. After one meeting with Tiffany she completely captured my wedding dreams. Tiffany and her Dream team created a fairytale wedding better than I ever dreamed. From beginning to end she was hands on with all my planning needs and unexpectedly enough, my emotional needs as well. Tiffany made sure I didn’t have a worry. My only job was to enjoy the planning process and be a bride, and know this was a once in a lifetime chance to be a princess and marry my prince charming.

The day of my wedding was so relaxing, yes I said relaxing. Tiffany and her  team catered to my every need, I was treated like a queen. The Glam squad was very professional and super fun I will forever use them for every event.

When Tiffany showed Kordell and I the room for the big reveal I was Floored! All of my emotions were summed up in one tear because Tiffany Cook had made my dreams come true with extra bling on top instead of a cherry. My reception room was fabulous the colors and lighting we chose and design of the space was absolutely perfect for making my husband and I center of attention. The Wedding Bling factor was in full effect, it seemed like the room was showered in diamonds and beautiful plush fabrics, with elegant modern touches throughout.

My husband Kordell and I loved how every part of our wedding was executed and are quick to refer anyone who wants to get married to Tiffany Cook.  

Thank you Tiffany & the Dream team!!

NFL TE Jared Cook & his wife Lana's wedding review of Tiffany Cook

Lana & husband NFL Rams TE Jared Cook 
wedding review for Tiffany Cook
 Celebrity Wedding Designer & Planner 

Tiffany Cook and her team are hands down amazing!  

I had so many things going on and there was no way that I could plan our wedding alone. So I reached out to Tiffany about three months before our wedding and that was one of the best decisions I've ever made. When I say her and her team made my dreams come true I mean I still feel like I'm dreaming! Every time I look at pictures of our wedding tears come to my eyes because it was so beautiful. 

Words cant express how much I appreciate and admire Tiffany. She is extremely professional and pays attention to detail like no one I've ever met.  I have a semi type A personality and it was extremely hard for me to allow someone to plan our special day for us...but Tiffany understood me and my vision and went above and beyond. She included me in every decision and made me feel like I planned our day when Lord knows she did all the hard work.  

For her and her team to be able to pull off my dream wedding in such a short period of time shows how amazing she is. It feels weird not talking to Tiffany everyday because I really feel like she was not only my planner but a great friend. She's such a sweet, understanding, caring, thoughtful person. I really feel like anyone who doesn't hire Tiffany and her dream team are selling themselves short. She made every single one of my dreams come true and then some. I still get calls and texts about how beautiful my wedding was and how they have never seen a wedding as amazing as 
mine not even onTV. 

 I can't say it enough TIFFANY IS AMAZING!

Destination Puerto Rico Celebrity Wedding Planner Tiffany Cook visits the St Regis Bahia Beach

My husband John & I were recently invited by Starwood Caribbean properties to stay, play, and tour two of their fabulous Resorts in Puerto Rico. Below we will walk you through our thoughts and experiences at these fantastic venues so you too can share in our experience from a personal and wedding and event business perspective.

Our first thought is why Puerto Rico? True it's a commonwealth of the US, but what else does it have to offer? You land into San Juan to the usual hand clapping, but thats where the usual ends! You're immediately greeted by your St Regis concierge. He grabs your bags and your off! The Bentley is comfortable and inviting, the drive through the city begging you to get into island time. As we explore the country side on our way to the resort, the chauffeur points out landmarks and explains how we are intertwined to the mainland. Upon arriving to the private resort we are immediately greeted by our client rep and of course Island Punch! As you walk over the native island wood bridge you feel as though you've been transported to another world. The staff at the St Regis Bahia Beach treat every single guest as though they are royalty!  As in the States, and abroad at St Regis no detail is overlooked! Their attention to detail and the ability to provide 5 star service is evident from the moment you walk through the doors.

Be sure to try the Churrasco Pizza poolside it is to die for!!

Once you've finished your local rum punch, it's time for the butler to show you to your suite. Upon your arrival you will notice the large accommodations and attention to detail. From the fully automated controls to the MASSIVE rain shower! Thank You St Regis!

You couldn't ask for more when it comes to the spacious luxury bathroom in our suite!! 

Reminder that noise you hear is the local frogs called the Coqui, NO the hotel can't turn them off! The St Regis prides itself on protecting and encouraging the growth of local wildlife and vegetation. Think of it as a true rain forest experience but with St Regis service!!

As a wedding and event planner I love what this property has to offer! The ability to offer almost everything to my clients guests and keep them on property makes my job easier but allows me to know your guests are taken care of. 

It doesn't matter if it's sunrise yoga, a 10:00 tee time or a 12:30 couples massage! As a fitness buff, I love the ability to work out in a full gym, then hit the running trails or paddle boards and kayaks. There is something for everyone and of course St Regis service!
