Meet the Masters with Judith Rosenthal - Finance Talk

Have you started talking about the M word?  M=Money which requires knowledge and awareness to achieve important financial goals as you start your new family together.  Judith Rosenthal, Senior Financial Advisor with Ameriprise Financial, provides professional financial planning services for every stage of life so you are better prepared to pursue your dreams with confidence.  Judi offers valuable information and recommendations that every couple should hear before they get married.

Do you have a vision for your future together?  What is your money culture?  Should newlyweds completely merge their finances or should they keep separate accounts?  How important is it to discuss risk tolerance with your spouse to be?  When should a couple start to look for professional assistance with regard to money matters?

Itâs easy to get caught up in the excitement of wedding planning and you might not want to see the big picture before you tie the knot.  Have you considered the long term positive impact if you spend less money on the wedding?  Inevitably, couples are going to argue from time to time on money issues.  What are some things they can do to resolve those disagreements?  Judi has some terrific suggestions that will help alleviate some stress and anxiety when blending finances.

Unique in the industry is Ameriprise Financialâs Dream Book guide.  Itâs an amazing personal journal to record your priorities, goals and plans so you can have better perspective on where you are going.  This important podcast gives you something essential to think about that can ultimately make your dreams a reality.

Newlywedcast with Kaylynn and Bill - A Las Vegas Destination Wedding

How did our featured newlyweds Kaylynn & Bill meet and fall in love? Want to hear a really fantastic surprise birthday trip proposal? Why get married in Las Vegas? How did they start the wedding planning process from Seattle and discover that they needed help? Kaylynn had a specific vision for her wedding and toured many hotels and locations they considered for their wedding. She knew she wanted a coordinator in charge of the many details of the day and she lucked out finding and hiring Tracey Kumer-Moore of Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge. Connecting with your wedding planner is important and priceless. The groom totally agrees that a planner is an advocate for your interests with your vendors and they take care of things you probably have not thought about. They worked with wonderful wedding professionals selected from many of Traceyâs references. Kaylynn and Bill realized throughout their 10 month engagement that Tracey helped lessen the overwhelming stress and we all know how much that matters!

Their September wedding took place at the Wynn Las Vegas. They wanted an intimate evening with friends and family to celebrate their union. Were things planned for their guests for the weekend? Kaylynn talks about finding her dream Lazaro wedding gown at a beautiful boutique in Seattle that coincidentally all of the women in her family had gotten their gowns. Kaylynn knew her look was perfect. She describes it as Timeless + Glitzy = Las Vegas Romantic. Hear how they made their twilight ceremony meaningful. Are you thinking of having a half-time wardrobe change? Kaylynn changes into an Alice + Olivia cocktail dress â what fun!

Their vision was achieved via the dÃcor. They wanted an elegant setting so they set up a few lounge spaces, used the outdoor patio, and was surrounded by lots of candles and flowers. Uplights and white chiffon fabric and votives were utilized in the LaTache ballroom. They had a band and DJ with a really cool black dance floor. Learn about their photographer and the shots Kaylynn & Bill really wanted to capture the energy & life of the party. Bill was in charge of food and booze. No traditional sit down dinner for them. No seating charts. Helen from the Wynn helped design creative menu elements for their cocktail party even though they didnât eat much of the food. Sound familiar?

Kaylynn suggests all couples should do something magical right after the ceremony. Can you guess what she is referring to? Listen and find out. What were their most memorable & favorite moments about the wedding? What was the best money ever spent? Their motto was to have fun and enjoy themselves. Their guests are still raving about their fabulous Vegas wedding at the Wynn. This Newlywedcast is inspiring and full of love.

Good-bye cookie cutter dÃcor. Michael Miner, VP Marketing Classic Party Rentals, talks about his philosophy in the world of events and what brides have available to make their occasion great. Then Robert spoke with leading entertaining expert David Tutera. David tells us about his Enchanted Garden table â its color, texture, personality. David says a wedding has to tell a story with the elements of your wedding. Listen and learn about eclectic looks and Davidâs favorite color trend.

Tess Casey of Aisling Studioâs, designed three tables at the event, and talks about the fabrics, color palette and details that feature different themes, unusual elements, and accent ideas. Do you want an element of surprise? Are you trying to be a little green?

She recently worked on the wedding scenes in the Sex and the City movie. She designed the wedding bouquet for Carrie. What flowers did she use? Want to find out the designer of the gown SJP wore? What should a couple know when starting their search for a floral designer? Tess gives her expert advice.

He has designed for celebrity clients including Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Robert DeNiro, Usher, and Diddy. Edâs best advice: Marry a couplesâ design fantasy with professional expertise so itâs a fun process.

Food is an element of dÃcor and something to talk about. Chefs created culinary delights enjoyed by invited guests.

Current wedding trends in food are discussed with Kelven Book of Canard Inc. Recognizable foods with a twist are starting to be prepared to make it more special, surprising and appetizing. Signature cocktails are here to stay. Interactive food at weddings and social events is a winner. Olivier Cheng created a tasting plate of savory and sweet fois gras, a naked salmon station, and a liquid nitrogen station â cool idea! Are people harder to impress today? Does Olivier welcome the creative challenge? Are you thinking of a cocktail reception only? Olivier tells us that food can evolve at a party.
