Celebrate: Allison & Daniel

It is hard to come across such an optimistic person as Allison.  All wedding planning can be stressful or challenging at times, or just have it’s moment of stumbling across some annoying factor.  But Allison is my first, ever, bride to break her foot just two months before her wedding – and then gracefully shrug it off and say “what can you do?”!  It is her true grace and character that came through at this point. She didn’t let this stop her from having a magical night and walking down the aisle (very carefully) in heels and then swapping back to put on her boot.  She laughed and cried at moments through-out the day along with her enthusiastic groom, Daniel.  They made this night memorable and remarkable for everyone, and we were so grateful to get to join them on this journey.

Celebrate: Alexis & Kyle

We had all been waiting for this day for quite a while, as Alexis and Kyle hired me two years before their big day!  Sounds a little crazy, but she was finishing up med school and they were living in different states at the time.  It just made sense for them to schedule their wedding for when she was done with school and off to residency, so they could go off happily married and finally live in the same place!  Alexis is ever the planner, and thus began the beautiful process of these two.  Kyle who truly cared so much about Alexis’s happiness, and Alexis who had an eye for details and wanting this day to be delightful for each an every person in attendance.

Even though it rained – I mean who can predict that two years out, the mood was a joyful one and all the pictures were even more stunning … and those shoes … she even had Kate Spade sneakers for the reception!  Gotta love a girl who loves the details!!

Celebrate: Cassie & Jon

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!

Celebrate: Erin & Steve

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!

Celebrate: Kate & Wade

The moment you meet Kate and Wade, you just know that they’re perfect for one another.  They’re both soft spoken and have the same down-to-earth vibe; they even look perfect for one another.  I think you could categorize Kate’s voice as the sweetest voice you’ve ever heard, it just makes you want to be her friend.  Needless to say, planning their wedding with them was an absolute delight!  I adore them both equally (I think in part because Wade said he has worked on building some Tiny Homes for HGTV and I’m OBSESSED with HGTV), and I couldn’t be happier that they have just begun their beautiful life together after this gorgeous wedding. Exactly what you’d expect from her: classic, simple, natural and beautiful.  Such a perfect day!

Celebrate: Katie & Jared

When you have a rap battle right after your grand entrance to your reception, you know this is going to be one heck of a party! This great big Italian wedding was wonderful and full of life.  Katie’s optimistic personality kept her going throughout the entire planning process, and Jared’s perfectly supportive demeanor was the perfect match to this energetic duo.  It has been such a fun year working with this gem, so happy to finally get to see them happily married!

Celebrate: Erica & Charles

I’m sitting here writing a collection of blog posts from my past 5 or so weddings, and I could not be more lucky with the group of people that I get to work with.  While all my couples could not be more different from one another, they each have these amazing qualities to them that make me so fortunate to get to know them.

Erica and Charles have the most amazing, quirky, fun-loving personalities. With a little bit of sarcasm from Charles and type-A detailing from Erica, these two hit home for me and I felt right at ease from the start! And when you listen to their talk and banter, it’s obvious they’ve been together for quite a few years (the cake topper actually said “finally” on it!) and are going to last a lifetime ahead.  Such love for these two, so grateful to have gotten to know them!

Celebrate: Jennifer & Chris

Jennifer is like a bottle of champagne always ready to be popped open! This bride has so much energy and enthusiasm and personality, she would literally make me laugh out loud for a good 90% of the emails she sent me.  It is no wonder that her groom is so kind and her family just the same, she just is a magnet that draws in really good people.  It was a blast working with her and helping make her day complete, such a great day! Thank you Jennifer, keep shining bright because you bring joy to those around you 🙂

Celebrate: Rafael & Rachel

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!
