What song is the soundtrack to your business day (or at least to how you feel right now)? “Blessed” by Martina McBride
What is your favorite flower? Never ask a florist their favorite flower, it’s a mood thing, changes everyday.

What’s your favorite local restaurant? Tres Agaves in Roseville

If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what element would be most important to you? Not being obligated to invite people I don’t even know or care about. I would only invite the people I would want to come to my birthday — meaning, intimate and fun. Being able to really enjoy everyone would be key.
What is the best advice you can give to brides and grooms getting married today? Don’t get so caught up in planning your wedding that you forget to work on your relationship and actual marriage.
Anything else you’d like to share with Real Weddings Magazine’s brides? There are some fabulous designers in Sacramento! Try to get a few estimates to make sure you are getting the design that meets your needs.
Editor’s note: Martha is such a good sport! She is letting us put this fun “blooper” shot of her at a photo shoot with The Memory Journalists. We love a good sense of humor!
