We are so pleased to introduce another member to the team–Jill Hudgins! Jill joined us as an intern in April of last year. She immediately personified a bridal consultant. She’s professional, high-energy and is extremely passionate about weddings. Jill is coordinating her own events, in addition to assisting our team.
Jill’s experience ranges from hospitality to event management. She is a graduate of Cal State San Marcos. In addition to having considerable experience at the Scripps Seaside Forum, Jill and her husband were married there! She’s a great person to talk to about Forum weddings, given her experiences there as both a consultant and a Bride. To read more about Jill, click here.
We are excited to roll out features about every member of our team–starting with our newest! Here is a bit more about Jill…
Hometown: Pacific Beach, CA
Favorite Wedding Venue: I absolutely love Scripps Seaside Forum, Hotel Del Coronado and Darlington House. All venues posses a certain type of charm, elegance, and romance that enhances any wedding celebration!
Best Advice for someone who is newly engaged: 
Smile big, and take time to share all the fun and excitement together! You may have been dreaming of this very moment for some time, and now it is here; you are engaged! As a newly engaged couple and the feeling of  being on cloud 9, celebrate with your closest family and friends!
Time flies by, so enjoy the wedding planning process together!
Most Interesting item in Emergency Kit: Protein/Granola bars for any snacking that is needed for Bride, Groom, Bridal Party, and Family.
Favorite Thing to do during downtime: I love running outside with fun/upbeat music. Traveling to visit family, road trips with my husband, and trying new activities such as paddle boarding.
2014 Trend Prediction: 
I think we will see more radiant/deep color schemes with creative use of greenery and floral designs. Overall elegance and glamour, along with contemporary design with traditional and creative touches.
