What a beatiful DAY! This couple was the perfect mix of elegance, quirky, and true love. Family was a continued highlight in every step this couple took in the planning process. I had the pleasure to meet Amanda & Derek mid-way through their wedding planning. Amanda & her mother realized planning her wedding was way beyond their DIY efforts and I was ever so happy to take hold of those DIY dreams and evolve them into a Wedding Day none of them could imagine. Decorating was a major task on such a large piece of property, but it also gives me a blank canvas to plan, place, and coordinate the best traffic flow for the wedding day. Private Property Weddings have its pros and cons for a planner & decorator. Electricity, water, remote spaces, and of course the elements are always a challenge. However, beautiful sunshine cast over a lake, aside a large log cabin home, that has been the home filled with memories of the bride as a young girl, truly adds a tender moment in everyones heart.
Savings for this couple ranged from the property being free of charge, food trucks used in place of a caterer, and of course as her florist and planner, I afforded her many savings with vendors.
I truly believe a picture is worth a thousand words.
