I remember the first time I saw Cassie and Jon as I ran into a coffee shop, ducking from the rain, and saw them sitting together. They were both working and waiting for me and were so cute in their matching glasses (okay, they weren’t really matching, but go with me). They were just so excited and reserved at the same time, and they continued that beautiful, calm yet joyful energy throughout the planning process. I think that just about every vendor that worked with them said “I love them!” at some point, because they were a dream to work with.
I consider myself lucky to have met these two in their journey in life. As they’ve worked their way from the east coast, to the south, and now finding themselves on the west coast, it has been such a joy to be a stepping stone on their way to happiness! Enjoy these tiny glimpse at their day!

These two amazing people, are both the youngest of 4, and have 3 older sisters each. So when I said “have immediate family show up at 4pm for pictures”, I forgot that that meant like 30 people. I came downstairs and a reminder light went off in my brain, because at first I was thinking “who are all these guests here so early!!”. It was so sweet to see how their family cared so much about these two and all the littles were playing some sort of roll in it all.
And it’s no wonder that they are accustomed to a chaotic group gathering or little kids running around – it didn’t even phase Erin when I (last minute) had to bring my 5 week old baby to a meeting and walk around bouncing him in my carrier while we selected linen colors! That is why they wanted this awesome cocktail style, lounge-y gathering where everyone is just together; talking, dancing, laughing, not ever sitting for too long, because that is their comfort zone and what makes them happiest. Just a good, familial group of people celebrating their love. Congrats!

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!
