This was another sibling wedding for me. I had the pleasure of coordinating the Groom’s brother’s wedding in 2009. They called me from Hawaii right after he proposed to set up their first consultation! We worked together on this wedding for over a year and I have to say that I had such a great time laughing and brainstorming with this couple as well as the Bride’s Mother.
They were in agreement to have their wedding simple and elegant without being stuffy or too much. They liked open spaces with easy parking. Very important to them was that everyone have a great time partying. There is no question they achieved this requirement! They enjoyed each moment of their special day. A shuttle was hired to take the Bridal Party around town to some unique places for off-site photos before going to the church, then more after the ceremony before the reception! J. Garner and staff did a fabulous job with all the photo shoots, as well as manning a live photobooth during the reception, complete with amazing props, etc.
The Bride and her mom collected numerous items throughout the year to use at the reception which just enhanced the décor tremendously. There were lots of pretty chalkboards with seat assignments and messages beautifully done by a calligrapher. There was plenty of eye-candy there. Custom labeled wine favors were given to all the guests as they left.
The topper of the evening was Dick’s burgers and milkshakes for surprise late-night snacks while the guests were dancing. You can’t go wrong with those! The Bride & Groom left late at night with a sparkler send-off from their guests. It was a long day for them, but worth every minute!
