They say you can’t plan life, and for a planner, that can be pretty annoying when it comes true. After being so excited to plan Rafael and Rachel’s September wedding in Seattle, it turned out I would be welcoming my own new addition to our family just 7 days before the wedding, making it impossible for me to travel across the country. My heart broke at the thought of missing this day for two reasons: because I hate to disappoint anyone, and because these two amazing people are also family. Rafael is my cousin and there are only a few chances to get to plan and attend family weddings, and I did not want to miss this one!
I couldn’t have had a more gracious couple to not only be excited for me, but to completely understand that my physical presence on the wedding day wasn’t what makes the process a success. So with that, the day was absolutely beautiful, with a trusted coordinator in place to execute this amazing day, I just wish we could have been there! So thrilled to welcome the beautiful, smart and funny Rachel to our family, Rafael knocked it out of the park with this one!
