Weddings to Celebrate: Lindsey & Matthew

If I had to describe Lindsey & Matthew in one word, it would be FUN.  I loved every minute of helping them plan their wedding, and every minute of their wedding day.  They had an intimate event with fifty of their nearest and dearest ... and every single person had a ball!  A picture is worth a thousand words.  I'll let these incredible images (captured by Agape House Studio) speak for themselves.

Weddings to Celebrate: Maria & Victor

I feel like a broken record - but referrals are always my favorite way to meet new clients.  Especially when those clients are siblings!  I had the pleasure of coordinating Minju & Victor G's wedding a couple of years ago...and was THRILLED when Maria & Victor L (Minju's brother) contacted me to coordinate theirs.  I would challenge anyone to find a more loving and kind family...I would coordinate a wedding for them any time!!! The oh-so-talented Sam Le (Sam Hugh Photography) did an incredible job capturing the feel of the day.  A picture is worth a thousand words; I'll let these speak for themselves.

Weddings to Celebrate: Amanda & Trent

I had the absolute privilege of helping Amanda & Trent plan their beautiful May wedding at Second Baptist Church and the Crystal Ballroom. Working with this sweet couple and with Amanda's parents truly was a wonderful experience. Serendipity Photography captured all of the love and excitement of this day so perfectly.

Weddings to Celebrate: Megan & Stephen

There are no words to properly describe how much I adore this family.  I planned Jackelyn & Zachary's wedding back in 2012 and was THRILLED when Megan (Zachary's sister) asked me to help with the planning for her wedding.  You couldn't meet a nicer group of people, and I am honored to call them friends.  They are welcoming, wonderful, open, loving and full of fun.  And Megan's wedding was all of those things times a million.  Though it was easily one of the most beautiful events I've ever planned, it was incredible because of the "vibe" in the room.  From the guests to the food to the music playing, it was a fairytale event.  I'll let the pictures tell you the rest of the story.  (If you don't know it already, Chip Gillespie is the bee's knees.)

Happy planning!!

The incredible cast of vendors.  Hands down, some of the best in the business.  Without them, this night would not have been as magical.

Weddings to Celebrate: Patricia & Kyle

Okay, so this one isn't an official "STC" wedding.  However, I definitely helped with all the planning.  Patricia is my youngest sister-in-law, and she and I share a special bond.  I adore her.  Gabe (my husband, her brother) and I were there when Kyle proposed, and I was honored to help her with the planning process.

Patricia and Kyle are a very laid-back couple.  Patricia's not "frilly" or traditional and likes a simple, Bohemian-style aesthetic.  She and Kyle wanted something intimate with just their closest friends and family.  I think they got exactly what they wanted :)  Here are some of the pictures captured by the team at Theo-Graphics.  Enjoy!

Happy Planning,

Isn't she gorgeous?  Her beauty radiants from within.

Yes, that is me officiating.  No, you will never see me do this for anyone else, ever again (unless there is an emergency).

Kyle is toasting Patricia at this moment. I love the look on her face.

Weddings to Celebrate: Courtney & Brandon

I met Courtney & Brandon last summer, and we "clicked" instantly.  I adore this couple, and helping them plan their wedding was a ton of fun.  After meeting their families, I knew why they were such great people.  They both come from exceptional stock!  :)  And they sure do know how to laugh and have a good time!

As always, Julie Wilhite captured the day beautifully.  Feast your eyes on these pretty pictures...

Happy Planning,

Weddings to Celebrate: Denise & Gray

I love referrals!  They are the best gift a client could ever give me.  When that referral is within the same immediate family, I am doubly delighted.  Especially when it's this family.  They are incredible!!  I was fortunate enough to coordinate Karen & Darryl's wedding back in 2013.  When Karen's parents contacted me last year to ask me to help with Denise's wedding (their oldest daughter), I was over-the-moon :)  I can't say it enough:  I adore this family!!

The forecast for Denise's and Gray's wedding (this past April) was hail on Friday and 100% severe thunderstorms on Saturday (with the heaviest scheduled for right at the ceremony time).  The bride, the groom, and both families handled this news with grace and poise.  We were all prepared for the worst, but were thrilled when the rain held off for the ceremony.  The overcast skies weren't what the bride had originally envisioned, but they ended up making for a glorious event.

Chip Gillespie was there to capture the entire thing, and I am so excited to share some of his pictures with you.  He is amazing!

Weddings to Celebrate: Meredith & Robert

I adore this couple.  Working with Meredith felt more like spending time with your little sister than actually working :)  I especially loved helping her with the design.  And...I am OBSESSED with her linens.  The team at Elegant Beginnings was able to pull an idea from my head and make it into a reality.  I don't think they could have turned out more beautifully.  And holy cow ... can you say flowers??!!  Scott & Lisa were incredible, as usual.

The always amazing Tyler Schmitt / Mill Photography Studio captured these images.  I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did!
