Moore Wedding

0094_reevesI met Taylor while planning one of her best friend’s weddings, the lovely Emily Hallum. (You can check out her blog post here!). I immediately liked her! She was so incredibly sweet, kind, helpful and so so happy for Emily. She and her dad approached me during Emily’s reception about Day Of assistance for her wedding, which was less than a month away! I, of course, immediately agreed!

Working with Taylor was so much fun! Her wedding took place at Hemingbough in St. Francisville, Louisiana on August 3, 2013. Her guests enjoyed the beautiful grounds, delicious food and absolutely adorable cookie table! Getting to be a part of the planning process for two best friends was an amazing experience! By the end of it, I truly felt that I had began a wonderful friendship with these ladies and was sad that there were no more weddings for me to help with! 🙂

Taylor, it was such a  pleasure to work with you for your wedding. You were such a stunning bride and I couldn’t be more happy for you and Andrew. I wish you guys all the best that life has to offer! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your big day!

Blackstone Wedding

So… if you’ve been around me at ALL in the past 7 months, you know that I was working with a super fabulous couple to perfect the details of their wedding day at The Horse Farm…. did I mention that this was going to be the 1st wedding at The Horse Farm….. and that it was all going to be outside… no? Well it was and yes, it did rain…. TWICE but with a couple as in love and beautiful as Ashley and Mark Allen are, nothing could dampen their day!

Throughout the process of working with Ashley, we quickly became friends. I actually felt like I was planning a close friend’s wedding because she was so honest and easy/fun to work with. She was incredibly trusting, which of course, makes everything so much easier and but she also had a very distinct vision of what she wanted. There were so many LITTLE details that, ultimately, came together in an unbelievably gorgeous wedding. From Jenga, a make-shift photo booth, thumbprint tree and treasure chest of wedding favors to signature drinks, a magnolia tree, and a very large and very beautiful hand drawn program board…. Ashley and Mark Allen’s wedding day was a personal and direct reflection of them as a couple.

Ashley married her best friend on October 12 at The Horse Farm in Lafayette, Louisiana. She had an intimate ceremony officiated by Pastor Chris Lerma. Her friends and family were so involved by providing the ceremony music and the oh so delicious wedding cake and groom’s “cake” which was actually double doozie cookies!

Now, I mentioned earlier that it rained… well rain has been a constant companion in Ashley’s wedding planning process. When I first met her, it was a rainy day…. when she and Mark Allen took their engagement pictures, it was a rainy day….when they planted a magnolia tree in honor of their marriage, it was a rainy day….and when this beautiful couple’s wedding day came, the rain came with it. The first rain storm came about two hours prior to the ceremony starting which resulted in a mad dash to get everything dry, but thanks to my super dedicated assistants and amazing vendors (Mia with Root Floral Design and Party Central) we got it done in the nick of time! The second rain storm came about an hour before the couple’s grand exit! For most people, this may have caused severe anxiety or even tears, but not for Ashley and Mark Allen. Mark Allen immediately consulted with his friends to move the party elsewhere and my team and my self worked on getting the bride and groom out of there DRY! In the end, the party moved to The Office, a local bar and the bride and groom along with their guests danced the night away!

Mr. and Mrs. Goodyear, it has been an undeniable pleasure working with you. You guys are a beautiful couple, inside and out! I pray that life brings you so much joy and happiness. I will truly miss working with you, but I am so thankful that you were brought into my life and that I was blessed enough to be a part of your big day. Cheers! 🙂

Becca's Wedding

Becca and Andrew were quite possibly the most laid back couple I’ve ever met. During the entire planning process, Becca was calm, relaxed and just happy to be marrying the love of her life. I’d like to think that her calmness came in part because of my assistance ;-), but after working with her for several months, I know that’s just part of her awesome personality.

Becca and Andrew were married at Wolff Ballroom in Washington, Louisiana. The reception was held at the same location immediately following the ceremony. Becca and Andrew’s laid back, comfortable style was displayed throughout the ballroom with mason jars filled with colorful wildflowers, candles, burlap and antique doors. The couple danced the night away and ended the evening with a confetti exit.

It was truly a blessing getting to work with Becca and Andrew and their families. They each have such fun families and friends, that the night was filled with lots of laughter and good cheer.

Becca and Andrew– thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your big day. You guys were such an awesome couple to work with and I’m so glad that your wedding ended my spring/summer wedding season. I wish you many blessings, lots of laughs and of course, a life time of happiness! 🙂
