Happy New Year, Happy New Name!

I can't believe we're a month in to 2013! I had so many wonderful experiences in 2012. I hope you did too!

I wanted to share some news with you. Oh, How Charming! is transitioning to a new name: Lisa Vorce Event Design & Production. The old moniker was great, but so many people ask for me by name, I've decided to embrace it! So, hello world, I'm Lisa Vorce Event Design & Production!

2013 is off to a wonderfully busy start. I've already completed a fiesta fabuloso in the beautiful Riviera Maya. I did some reconnaissance in breathtaking Sedona, Arizona. And, I just returned from the mighty NYC. My husband James joined me, so I was able to mix business with pleasure. What a treat!

Every time I'm in New York, I have to visit my most favorite haunts. I hit Bergdorf's (where I ran into some former clients!), I walked through Central Park with my hubby, and I bought the most delectable macaroons at La Ladurée. (Fleur de Sel Caramel is the best!)

Here I am in Bergdorf Goodman, with the lovely Grodnick family! From left to right, Mrs. Joy Grodnick, Meryl (whose wedding we did at the Ojai Valley Inn), myself, and Leah – a future client! We did Abby's wedding (not pictured) in Beaver Creek last January. Her wedding will be showcased in Martha Stewart Weddings shortly. Joy was visiting from Alabama for Leah's birthday. I think it's amazing with the millions of people in NYC that I ran into them! They are truly SO dear to me.

So happy for my dear friend Abby and the release of her beautiful book Style Me Pretty Weddings today! Abby and her team did such a beautiful job on the book. Tons of inspiration, helpful tidbits, and visual delights!

I was flattered when Abby asked me to design some tables for the book. It's such a joy every time I collaborate with Abby. She’s not only a brilliant business woman, but she is one of the kindest, most genuine, down-to-earth women I know! If you didn’t already pre-order your book… go run out and get one NOW!

In the meantime - here’s Abby's post from Style Me Pretty offering a peek of one of our tables designed for the book -- a little glam to brighten up your day! Our talented collaborators included:

Hei, og Takk!

That's hello and thank you in Norwegian. Hello and thank you to my favorite Norwegian follower who kindly requested that I get back on the blog wagon. You kicked my rear into gear! I've circled the globe since I last blogged -- Mexico, St. Barthes, Vietnam, Spain, Palm Springs, Telluride, Bali, Tennessee, Santa Ynez.... So many experiences and such stunning locations for events!! I've added new images in the Event Gallery so you can follow along. Oh, and I've fallen in love with Instagram, so you can follow me (LisaVorce) on instagram to see more candid shots of our events and my travels. Stay tuned for more blog posts, press and news! I'll leave you with one of my favorite personal photos -- my team. Of course, I couldn't do what I do without their hard work. Here is some of my team on location at a recent event in Bali, Indonesia.

(That's the only other word I know in Norwegian!)
