Using Love Intelligence to Organize the Perfect Wedding


Dear Beautiful YOU

This is LOVE INTELLIGENCE speaking.

Who is this I hear you ask?

Well … I am the small loving voice of wisdom that resides within you!

I have come to you so that your dreams of an ideal wedding and the journey leading up to that wonderful day is as stress-free and exciting as intended.

I am your inner guidance helping you to cope with difficulties and to remind you to tap into your sense of calm and peace whenever you most need me.

I have observed recently the moments when you have struggled to make a decision due to fear, anxiety, irritation or shame. These feelings can be uncomfortable and are often attached to unhelpful thoughts and limiting beliefs. At times, they have provided wonderful life lessons as a gift to you. On other occasions, your happiness has been blocked. I wish what you wish for, and that is for you to design and organize the perfect wedding day.

I also hear your deepest desires and that is to continue enjoying all of the wedding activities towards your big day and thereafter—for you and your loving partner.

This is instead of you trying to combat potential problems by doing everything alone or getting annoyed as well as frustrated, overwhelmed and stressed with yourself, your partner, the wedding planner and significant others.

So now is the time to reconnect with me once more. The small voice of intuitive wisdom that is Love Intelligence inside of you—(that is you) and is all-knowing.

Please remember Beautiful YOU that problems will always arise. Either way, this is yet another earth journey calling upon you to listen to your inner guidance. To cope best and make decisions that fit with who you are. To communicate from a loving perspective and to feel good about the version of who you are becoming as a person that is entering a new phase in your life journey.

This moment is to be enjoyed. You and your partner are special. Treasure the moments together. Continue being happy and excited as you approach your wedding day and enter into marriage. Love Intelligence will always be here for you. Relax in the sure faith that everything is going to plan.


So here’s what you can do to access and deepen the connection to me when you need me.

Please remember that it does not matter where or when you access me, but it does matter HOW you tap into me. My voice is small amongst the chatter of your mind and the outside experiences that you have everyday. So you need to listen intently.

I will provide guidance in any format (words, images, feelings, people) to help you make the decision that makes the difference; for you to feel a sense of knowing; to have the ‘aha’ moments of inspiration and for the oozing of love vibrations to be expressed through the lens of your caring heart and smiles.

So let us begin with one of many ways in which to access Love Intelligence.

1. Begin by finding a place that makes you feel great (such as an open/outdoor space, e.g., nature or your bedroom offering privacy).

2. Use accessories to trigger the emotion of well-being (such as playing music or sitting in silence).

3. And connect with me by connecting with your body (it’s best to close your eyes but you don’t have to) and notice what is going on inside your body.

4. Take a few deep breaths inhaling and exhaling as deeply as possible until you feel totally relaxed. Focus on your breathing.

5. Stay still.

6. Silently try to quiet your mind in whichever way works for you. This will help you to increase your intuitive awareness.

7. Become settled and stay in this feeling for a while.

8. Feel the peace, calm and relaxation.

9. This is the time to offer a problem that is most important to you to resolve. Give this question to me and listen for the answer—patiently.

10. You will know and trust when you receive the answer(s) or solution(s). It will feel ‘right’ although you may second guess yourself in applying it.

To avoid second guessing, you will need to follow my advice which requires faith, trust and confidence. You have all of these qualities so try not to worry.

If you need any support—intuitively ask the person you know is the ‘right’ person to help you organize your wedding and to enjoy the journey with you.

Now … go and enjoy your wedding day and give my love to your partner.

With love from my heart to your heart.

Fond Regards

Queen of the Palace – A real fairy tale come true at The Palazzo Manganani Feroni


Feeling like a queen will be second nature when you stay at the Palazzo Maganani Feroni Hotel in Florence.

This former palace, owned by two families and most recently the Giannotti family for over 250 years, is an authentic Renaissance Palace from the 1500’s, which was completely restored in 2002.

The architecture is superb; original frescoes, cross-vaulted ceilings, a beautiful inside courtyard and a rooftop terrace, which overlooks the beautiful city of Florence and the nearby hills. Each suite has its own personalised name and you can even choose your preferred soap for the duration of your stay. The rooms all carry Bulgari amenities – what’s not to love!

On the second floor left wing where the majestic Salon sits, you can enjoy a white glove service romantic candle lit breakfast and even a mimosa or bucks fizz along side your macchiato, cappuccino or coffee/tea of choice.

The Race To The Alter with Kim Tumey

Let Kim Tumey tell it she is a southern girl. ” I am very particular.  Very hands on so a wedding planner, I don’t think so.”

This is going to be by far not a typical southern wedding.  Nothing about this wedding is going to be traditional.  From the engagement party, which will be hosted by a celebrity, to the FaceBook fans who are bidding to be guests at this wedding.

But did we expect anything less from Kim.  If anyone has ever attended any of Kim’s events they have been nothing short of entertaining.  So the wedding is going to be something to see.

In between juggling her celebrity clients, negotiating a deal, Kim insists on planning her own wedding.  The search for the dress has begun.  Securing the location, head count, which in my opinion is probably going to be the cost of feeding a small country.

So we asked Kim, any drama from the groom about the wedding plans?  Her response, “Nope, he agrees with everything like the typical groom! Great right!”  Wow as all I can say.

Have you secured your venue yet?  Kim’s response, ” yes, but I don’t know if I want to announce it yet.  I’m not already.  That sounds like she isn’t to sure and she has more then one location in mind.  Or it isn’t big enough for the stadium size audience that wants to attend.

We asked about the dress and how dress shopping is going? Kim, ” I was going to go shopping but someone offered to design me a wedding dress.”  Unbelievable.

Now for a typical every day person that may be your mother, your aunt, your grandmother or a cousin.  But we are talking about Kim Tumey here, so that could be any recognizable brand designer, it may be coming from Italy, France, who knows?  All I know is we had some offers here in NY for her already so here begins the problem.  Or is it a problem?

If that is the extent of her problem,Image getting to many offers for her dress then I think we haven’t seen nothing yet.  It may turn out to be a runway show.  She may have to change several times before the evening is over.

Well ladies and gentlemen stay tuned for the next episode of “The Race To The Alter-starring Kim Tumey.”

Committed to Love

Kim Tumey, Publist, Celebrity Broker, are some of her titles, some of her responsibilities are casting, management, event planning and negotiates deals on behalf of celebrities for movie roles, commercials, plays and endorsement deals.

Some of her past and present clients that you may recognize are actress Vivica A. Fox, actor Omar Benson Miller (CSI:Miami), actor Brian White (Men of a Certain Age, 12 Rounds, The Game Plan), Sean Blakemore (General Hospital, Star Trek Sequal, Motives), Boris Kodjoe, Morris Chestnut, Darrin Dewitt Henson (Soul Food, The Express, Tekken), Neo Soul artist Dwele ,actress Elise Neal, NLBM, Churchill Downs and the famous Kennedy- Shriver & Hearst families just to name a few.  No one to major, you don’t say… Hahaha.

If some of those names aren’t big enough for her she is now adding one more client to her roster of brilliant people, Robert Davis, former actor of Nash Bridges (1996-2001) who presently has no connection to the entertainment industry other then his soon to be bride. Don’t be surprised if he gets back into the game. This green eyed, brown skin, charmer, is a blue collar worker in the oil business in the Gulf.  His starring role “HUSBAND TO BE”.  She is also adding one more title to her already extensive resume, “BRIDE TO BE”.  Yes Tumey is tying the knot.

This is all being done as she cares for the needs of her celebrity clientele.  Wow.  The only thing we can say is “This must be Love”.

It is with great pleasure that the staff or World Bride Magazine follow her on her journey as she plans her nuptials. My concerns are:  Is this going to be a wedding or the Oscars?  What will the guest list look like?  Where will the papparazi be hiding?  This is definitely the making of a serious reality show.

This may be the royal wedding of Atlanta!  Already she is getting messages from greats like Vivica A. Fox. Message of love,

Kim Tumey’s past event guest have included David Curso (CSI Miami), Omar Benson Miller (CSI: Miami), Cindy Crawford (Super Model), Russell Crowe (actor), Star Jones, Tom Arnold (actor), Angela Bassett (actress), MLB’s Curtis Granderson (Detroit Tigers) and Dontrelle Willis (Florida Marlins), singer/ actress Ashanti, singer Ciara, R&B artist Trey Songz, actor Matthew Perry and more.

If her events speak for what she does can you imagine what her guest list would look like at her wedding.  I don’t want front row seats, I want back row so I can see every single person that come to this gala.

09 Bonnie and Clyde….

latoya-and-andre When do you know it’s right? Especially when its not your first time. Life in itself is a challenge, working, dealing with ones day to day needs, planning and managing a career, to say the least. So now you add the challenge of marriage. Sharing your life with someone is a selfless act. Your every thought, decisions involves the well being of another.  How do you know when the person is right for you? When loving the person becomes “Effortless”. That was the word Super Model Andre Brown had to say about his beau Latoya Scott.
I met with this wonderful young couple for dinner it was magical.   Not in a fairy tale sort of way, in the way that only could happen in New York City and in the Fashion Industry.
Boy sees girl, boy approaches girl and boy fakes being lost to get girls attention, girl falls for it and love is destine to blossom.
Well it wasn’t that simple but something like that, Andre confessed to following her from work and didn’t know how to approach her so he faked needing direction to get her attention. Lovely……
We we will take the final journey with this great couple as they plan their nuptials. They were originally planning a wedding in the Caribbean, but due to unforeseen circumstances they decided to plan their great day in New York City.  The overtone of the economy also played a role in addition to not wanting to add further stress to themselves or their loved ones.  So they shift gears and began planning their wedding right in the heart of New York City where they fell in love, and at the perfect NYC location, The High Bar.  Not a bad place to settle for; The High Bar is over looking the New York City sky line in midtown Manhattan.  This chic New York Hot Spot suits the fabulous life that this young couple represent and all they will bring.  Dress, by famous New York Designer Youlin, the race to meet this May 2009 nuptial deadline begins.  With so much they need to do I was amazed that this Caribbean beauty was not pulling her hair from its roots.  Still needing Florist, location decor, hair stylist, dj, transportation, hotel accomadation, I was  puzzled as to why she was so calm.  Latoya’s response, “I work in fashion.  I deal with frantic models designers, shows every day, this is a walk in the park.”  Need I say more, stay tuned as we follow them through all their wedding plans.  Another question that I asked and the response moved me, ” how do you know this is the last one?”, since they were both previously married.  Andre’s response was because “We like each other, enjoy each others company, ride or die”. Nough said!

Stay tuned as we follow The 09 Bonnie and Clyde through all their wedding plans.

Bridal Bliss- Indulgence- Diamonds, Chocolate and Champagne

February has many meanings to different people. Harsh winter, short month, Celebration of Black history month and last but not least the month of “amour”.

In the bridal industry November through February is the highest point of engagements and romantic winter weddings.

This month awakens all the senses that may have been hibernating during these past cold winter months. Sight, the engagement ring, diamonds, semi-precious stones, jewelry, are often gifts of choice. Taste, chocolates, champagne, and strawberries -the seductive tools of the tongue. Smell, Roses, and perfumes, lotions and candles, the taunters of ones sense of smell. Sound, to hear the words that melt the heart and evoke other senses that lead to last but not least Touch. Silks, Satins ,lace and other luxury goods. That only fashion can adequately satisfy.

This is the time couples would steal moments to revitalize their love or to reconfirm their relationship. This may have also been the time to propose a new level to the relationship.

Where ever you are in your relationship some things that may assist you in expressing your love:

Diamonds date as far back as some 3,000.00 years to India. It was there that it was probably discovered that the precious and beautiful stone had the ability to retract light. In those days, diamonds was used for two ways decorative purposes and as talisman to ward off evil or provide protection in battle. In The Middle ages it was thought to be used for its healing powers.
Today, diamonds, is the worthy symbol to celebrate ones lifelong commitment of love. Tiffany & Co., Movado, David Yurman and H.Stern are there to assist in that area.

Chocolates, coming from the Cacao tree was discovered some 2, 000 years ago in the tropical rainforest’s of the Americas. The first people known to have made chocolate were from the ancient cultures of Mexico and Central America-Maya and Aztec. The early lovers of chocolate mixed this seed with various seasons to make a spicy frothy drink. It was the Spaniards that brought the seeds back home and new recipes were created and thus chocolate became a hit. Today Noka Chicaneries, Jean Philippe Patisserie, Emily’s Fortune of Love and Astor have further developed this seductive sweet pleasure.

Wash down this treat with sparkling wine to the elite Champagne. Originating from French monks, named after the Champagne region of France. It was Frere Jean-Oudart and Dom Pierre Pegnon, Benedictine monks and cellar masters that created a method of “mousse” another name for bubbles.
