CAMERON PARK — Daylight hours are gaining minutes each day, new growth is starting to sprout on trees and birds are signaling the coming of spring.

Spring is also the time for wedding planning and weddings and the Cameron Park Community Services District is presenting “It’s A Wedding Affair” to help make that special day the best that it can be.

“It’s A Wedding Affair” is Sunday, Feb. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Cameron Park Community Center, 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park.

Darcie Swedelson, an accredited bridal consultant and owner of A Dazzling Day … by Darcie, is organizing the event. The Cameron Park resident has been working as a bridal consultant in the region for the last 18 years.

Helping a couple prepare for their special day and to make it a time to be cherished for the rest of their lives is what inspired Swedelson to start “It’s A Wedding Affair.”

“I saw the need for a professional business consultant to orchestrate local vendors into a group to serve El Dorado County brides,” Swedelson said. “I had been thinking about the business for a few years after organizing a local network group here in the foothills.”

As a full-time wedding planner, Swedelson has collaborated with “a handful of extremely talented wedding professionals to make this event like no other.”

This includes every aspect of the wedding and swag bags for all brides.

“There will be something for everyone,” Swedelson said. “If the bride starts with a wedding planner she will save on time, money and planning will be stress free.”

Tina Helm, recreation supervisor for the Cameron Park CSD, said this event will provide answers for brides and/or family members of brides to prepare for a bride’s special day; from bridal gowns, florists and honeymoons to MC/DJs, party rentals, photographers, videographers, catering and dessert tastings.

“The event is to showcase everything a bride is looking for,” Helm said.

Helm expects to see some grooms at the event.

There is no admission to attend the event.
