Outdoor Weddings: What could possibly go wrong?! was this month’s topic with with Jessica Gillon (Wedding and Event Producer, Owner of Events By Design) and Jared Bauman (Founder and Photographer for Bauman Photographers and Shoot Dot Edit).

Living in Southern California, we are fortunate to have beautiful weather practically year round. Outdoor weddings are preferred by many, but have proven to be significantly more difficult. We all know weather is an issue when planning an outdoor event, but let’s talk about all the issues you would NEVER consider, or even think was possible! Jessica Gillon of Events by Design shared her years of scenarios, stories and experiences of the unpredictable, the unbelievable and sometimes the down right comical situations she has made her way out of.
