Plan & Organize the Perfect Summer Wedding + Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Giveaway #LoveNote8

Seven years ago today, I had my dream wedding on the beach at Carter Bay.  Yes, it's true!  Today is our 7 Year Wedding Anniversary!

The white sand beach, the turquoise water, all our closest family and friends, and the perfect sunny day just made our special day a fairy tale come true.

I remember the planning and organizing too.  I felt fortunate that technology like the internet enabled me to do most of my drafting of ideas online and on my computer.  I researched everything from bridesmaids' dresses, motifs, bombonieres, to the perfect wedding cake. 

When I saw this video of Mindy Weiss talking about planning weddings, I was in awe.  I won't lie.  The video made me think, "Wow. If we ever renew our wedding vows, I want  Mindy and that Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0!" 

Wishful thinking.  I know.  Not only is Mindy Weiss a celebrity event planner for the stars, but she is just a fabulous event planner in general.  See for yourself in this video:

Mindy explains that what makes a person's event different from other people's is truly personalizing it. Every detail can be visualized with the use of the Galaxy Note 8.0.

The SamsungGalaxy Note 8.0 features:

·         Large 8” screen that is still small enough to toss into a purse.
·         Wifi capable for connecting at home or while out and about.
·         Bluetooth
·         5.0 MP Rear-facing Camera and 1.3 MP Front-facing Camera with Flash. Capture those big and small moments that make each wedding unique.
·         Light weight, at just 340 g it won’t weigh you down.
·         Decent battery life will get you through an event without having to worry about recharging. (depending on which apps are in use).
·         S Pen for precision sketching, quick navigation and easy handwriting. The S Pen is the perfect tool for taking notes, personalizing emails, making last minute changes to invitations, or just doodling. And with the convenience of Air View, you can preview content without actually having to open it. Save everything to Dropbox and/or Evernote and have access to everything in the cloud.
·         Keep on track and on schedule with Awesome Note, calendar and even sync it with Google’s calendar to seamlessly track everything across devices. With Multi Window, you can use two apps on the same screen, at the same time.
·         Take your notes with you wherever you go with preloaded Polaris Office. View, edit and create documents, spreadsheets and guest lists without having to download anything.
·         Expandable memory to take your documents from your Note to your desktop and back again with ease.
·         Meeting up with the girls for a last minute farewell to singledom? No worries. Coordinate your event through social media (Facebook, Twitter and more) with any one of the many apps available for free in the Google Play store.
·         Share photos with a roomful of people with AllShare Play™. With a simple click your images are beamed wirelessly. It’s seriously cool.
·         If you are more artistically inclined take your photos to the next level before sending them to family and friends with the Note 8.0‘s powerful and mobile photo editing option.
·         Catch up with the latest novel or magazine while waiting to get your hair or nails done. The Note’s compact size makes it easy to bring your library with you wherever you go.

The Samsung Galaxy Note is available for purchase at major retailers including Staples, Futureshop, Best Buy, Visions and NCIX for around $430 CDN.
