Celebrate: Amanda + Bill

Ah, Amanda and Bill!  These two just make me smile … maybe it’s because (in Amanda’s words) few people can pull off a velvet purple jacket, like Bill did, to their rehearsal dinner.  These two are the perfect combination of laid-back and fun – wanting things to be beautiful, but not stressing over the details (they left that to us!).  It was such a beautiful day with the sun shining and their small A-frame Chapel ceremony, with a large reception at City Winery.  The band was killing it and these two were glowing – you could see the awe in their faces as they soaked in each moment of the day through the end of the night.   It was truly beautiful.

Rachel & Ryan, a very special day

We tend to get a lot of clients who live out of state.  It definitely makes our job super rewarding because we get to work hard on behalf of the couple to make sure we are taking care of things in their place, but it is also sad because you wonder if you’ll ever see these amazing people again.  Of course there is social media and I fondly see some of my couples evolve in their lives, but it’s funny how you can go from spending a year talking to someone on a weekly basis and then in a flash, it’s over.

Rachel & Ryan will always hold a huge place in my heart.  Several months into planning, unbeknownst to any of us, I got pregnant and had a due date that was only one day before their wedding date!  My heart sunk the day I found out because I didn’t know how I was going to tell Rachel and my hands shook as I made the call.  Never have I met someone with such grace and calm; she took the news in stride and was more inquisitive towards how I was doing than she was concerned about her wedding.  It was truly amazing and I am eternally grateful.

Taking after his mother, my baby also (apparently) likes to show up early to events, and arriving to this world with 21 days to spare, there was no doubt in my mind that I was going to be present on Rachel and Ryan’s wedding day!  There is no place that I would have rather been that day, than helping celebrate and witness the union of Rachel and Ryan.  Such an amazing team of people made this day absolutely gorgeous.  So thrilled to have been a part of it all.

Celebrate: Amanda & Chris

Amanda & Chris are hysterical.  You have this beautiful, soft-spoken blonde with big blue eyes and a huge warm heart, and then you have her groom; a high-energy, totally wild-spirited guy with fun engraved on his brain, and together, it is magic!  The energy between the two of them is magnetic and they have the family and friends to prove it.

I was so excited to help Amanda and Chris bring the final details of their beautiful day together.  While always meaningful, you can just tell that these two put their priority on the most important place: marriage.  Yes, it was an amazing party, the food was delicious and the decor was beautiful, but above all, it was the union of these two that stood out to me and I was honored to watch it take place.

Thank you Amanda and Chris and congratulations again!  And thanks to this killer team of vendors that I got to work with!
