Elyssa & Stephen

When I first sat down with Elyssa I could tell she was already a little stressed about planning her big day. She had a vision but wasn’t sure how to execute it and had a not too pleasant experience working with another planner. Whenever I meet brides like Elyssa I get an urge to give them a hug and then get to work! It becomes my mission to show them how stress free this process can be! After we secured her date at the gorgeous Sherwood Country Club (anyone see Bridesmaids?!) Elyssa was inspired. We honed in on how to create the romantic and magical vibe she was dreaming of using soft lighting, luscious flowers and lots and candles!

The team of vendors I have built relationships with are some of my favorite to work with, but I am always excited when my clients introduce me to their favorites! Elyssa had stumbled across Christien Anthony Music playing at another event she attended and fell in love. Her florist, Earth Baby Flowers, she also came across without even trying. Both vendors added the perfect sound and touch to her big day.

Elyssa & Stephen’s wedding was the best way to jump start the year! The weather was perfect, a little warmer than usual for January but with a slight breeze.  Everyone was set and ready and then it came time for their first look…pure magic! You can see the love between these two and it set the tone for the rest of the day and night.  I was beyond happy to hear that everything turned out exactly as she had pictured it, from the dreamy ceremony at night to dancing under the stars, not to mention the dessert bar that left nothing to be desired. The speeches where hilarious and heart warming and the band was hitting all the right notes while keeping everyone on their feet. 

Client’s like Elyssa & Stephen warm my heart. Its always such an honor to help guide someone from the start of this process to the end and then to see their faces light up when it all comes together.
