The Complete Wedding Package -- Online Video Script 1
INT. HOTEL SUITE - DAY
WEDDING PLANNER JULIE, swings open door—shocked to see her always tardy bride early, with hair and makeup done.
WEDDING PLANNER JULIE
You're an hour early...
and your hair and makeup are done?
Yanks bride inside.
My sister's... uh... still at the house.
Wedding planner stares at her luggage.
That's a lot of luggage for one night. You’re leaving for Paris in two days from home.
Oh, I'm sorry... people always think I'm—
(cuts her off)
Your hair and makeup look amazing...
very old Hollywood glam,
not exactly the Cinderella look
Bride stares past the wedding planner at the pink
wedding gown displayed on a dress form.
Let's get you dressed!
Yes, it is... after eight fittings...
And four migraines...
must be a record somewhere.
You did an awesome job!
(startles the planner)
I sneaked a peek in the reception room.
Love those heart-shaped centerpieces.
You don't sound like yourself.
INT. HOTEL SUITE - LATER
Photographer shoots bride now in wedding gown and veil and holding her bouquet. Wedding planner watches.
I love my peonies bouquet!
I wouldn't change a thing.
Door FLIES open. KASSIE, the spitting image of the bride, enters with bridesmaids.
Jules... I hate that awful
and change those hideous
heart-shaped bouquets. NOW!
Kassie SCREAMS. (Editing turns one person into two.)
What's my twin doing in my wedding gown!
I tried to tell you. Julie ...I'm Kendra...
I just arrived from London.
WEDDING PLANNER JULIE
You're ...who ...what? How would I know? You called her your lame sister... not your lame identical twin!
Get out of my gown now!
You mean ...my gown I picked out
for the groom you stole!
Kassie SCREAMS, LUNGES at twin with wedding planner in the middle. The scene freezes.
CAMERA PULLS BACK on a woman laughing at the Bridezilla reality show playing on her laptop.
Clearly, she wasn’t a Complete Wedding Package bride. I'm JOCELYN PARKER,Owner of the Complete Wedding Package, premiere wedding and event consulting.
She leaves antique desk and stands between a bridal gown on a dress form and decorated sweet heart table.
Our motto is No surprises! We prepare for the expected and unexpected. We Skype out-of-town attendants, and know when everyone's arriving and where everyone is.
She adds crystals to a centerpiece.
Every detail is tailored to each bride. We leave the drama to reality TV. We scour antique stores and boutiques to add extra flair. But we also work well on tight budgets.

A Financial Resuscitation
at the Donut Shop
INT. CAFE - DAY
GISELE sips her iced coffee and chats a little too loudly on her cell's earpiece. Viewers hear her, but don't see her.
Camera focuses on a second customer, SHAWNA JOHNSON, busy working on her laptop across from Gisele.
Hold on, Sasha...I forgot my Splendor.
I have extra. You can have mine.
Shawna hands a preoccupied Gisele the Splendor.
Sasha, how many times do I have to tell you. Yes, we can write off dinners at the Ritz Carlton ... Oooh... and that yoga retreat we took last May at South Beach.
I write things off all the time in our network marketing account.
Shawna looks up with concern, still typing.
It's not stretching the truth. We took our Juice Plus with us. No... it doesn't matter that we didn't get any sales. This iced coffee is yummy.
Shawna stops typing and stares toward the voice.
We can so write them off. Didn't we give out tons of business cards and samples? Who says we can't get a little sun while we're at it. All work and no fun makes Mommy a dull girl.
Shawna stops a giggle.
Jeez, Debbie Downer...thanks for reminding me our sales have slowed down. Have you forgotten, we also have something called full-time jobs, and I'm stuck on the grave-yard shift.
That's why I've put deposits down on two more conferences--Las Vegas and the Bahamas.
She says fast, slurping her coffee.
No, I don't need to talk to our accountant. Mr. Boring just shoves papers in my face that I don't understand. I keep calling him about Quicken, but I need a manual just to understand him. I wish I had someone to sit next to me... install it and teach me.
Gisele sighs again.
Stop calling me crazy! We'll write them off too.
Shawna tries hard not to laugh, staring at Gisele.
Oh man...you didn't tell me it was this late!
She catches Shawna staring at her, grinning.
Hold on Sash... excuse me, Miss. Can I help you?
CLOSE-UP on Shawna.
I'm sorry. I couldn't help overhearing your conversation. Your friend is right to be concerned.
Sasha...stop shouting I told you so. I'm hanging up now.
She hangs up.
I'm Shawna Johnson... Managing Partner of the CPA firm Redcross Johnson & Associates. Please, call me Shawna.
She hands her a business card, but it stays poised in her hand longer than expected.
You're falling into a trap many Network Marketers fall into.
A hand snatches it, just when she's about to return it to her purse.
Look lady, I'm sure you know your CPA business, but network marketing is different.
You're right...network marketing is different. I was a Network Marketer for many years, so I know the pitfalls new marketers can fall into. Write-offs are a big one.
I really have to go.
It's okay to write off expenses acquired when marketing your Juice Plus business. But there has to be a steady revenue growth. You have to show some profits, or red flags will go up at the IRS.
Red flags! Okay, you've got my attention.
Write-offs should relate directly to growth. It's better to write off your yoga retreat only if you received direct sales and referrals from it.
My accountant never told me that. Okay...maybe he did. Oh, who can tell...he talks at me. We don't have conversations like this. (hyperventilating) Oh my gosh, I don't want to get into trouble with the IRS. I don't believe this...Sasha was...she was...I can't breathe!
A startled Shawna dumps a paper bag and thrusts it toward Gisele, who snatches it.
Are you okay? Breathe into the bag...nice slow breaths.
We hear her breathing into the bag. SFX: Shawna's face goes in and out of focus, until Gisele breathes normally again.
You'll be just fine. I'll help you become proactive--not reactive. That's it...nice and slow...better?
Much better. Wow, you're like this financial first responder.
I guess you can say that. Redcross Johnson & Associates is not your typical CPA. We'll be with you every step of your financial journey. We're your partner. We'll create a personalized business plan that works best for you. Since you work the graveyard shift, I can come to you and teach you Quicken.
Are you kidding me?
We'll do whatever we can to help you make money. If you have a laptop...
(responding to Giselle's nod)
good... Well, we could even meet here and I'll install it on your computer.
You can teach me here? That would be awesome, but I've got two minutes to make my bus.
It was nice meeting you.
Shawna waves good-bye and speaks to camera.
