This happened to be the 2nd wedding I did for this family. I coordinated the bride’s sisters’ wedding in 2009. How fun to have repeat business with the same families!!! This couple had known each other since they were 18 years old and were absolutely ready to get married! Amid all the wedding planning, the Bride finished medical school on the East Coast! This has to be one of my sweetest couples of all time! It was an absolute pleasure working with them.
Since this was a late afternoon wedding, the Bridal Party was able to leisurely start their day. After having brunch and having hair and makeup done, photos began. As you can imagine, the Fairmont Hotel staff did an outstanding job of working with us to incorporate all the elements of this wedding. There were lots of family and friends to witness the signing of the Ketubah just prior to the ceremony.
One of the things I loved most about this wedding was the inclusion of their families in unique places during the reception. Both Fathers gave Blessings and the Bride and Groom had toasts made to them by their respective siblings. I think everyone had fun dancing the horah as well.
Michael Benson did his usual awesome job of providing wonderful background and dance music throughout the evening. In fact, I think he even went a little above and beyond at this one – he and his band are truly amazing!!! This family loves a good party – and that is exactly what they got!!
Mother of the Bride: The wedding was beautiful and everything was done to perfection thanks to you. Every one of our vendors was super. We received so many lovely comments and notes and I know it all came together because you made it happen. I have told everyone how absolutely wonderful you are!! Anyone who has your help with their wedding is so very lucky. We have one more daughter so hopefully we will work together again in the not too distant future. All the best to you. With profound appreciation. – Marcy
