Megan and Brad October 6, 2013

When you first hear about an outdoor wedding ceremony in October in Jackson, you immediately think I hope it doesn't snow!! So when I first met with Megan and Brad and started asking questions about any concerns they had about their upcoming wedding, I was relieved to hear that weather wasn't something they were stressed or worried about!! As long as it didn't pour down rain, this couple was tying the knot with smiles on their faces. Their goal was to have fun with their families and eat, drink and be married. The snow came just days earlier and on their wedding day Megan and Brad breathed a sigh of relief when the sun shone brightly and warmly on the lawn at Shooting Star!

As the wedding day started to come together, you could see all the personal touches Megan and Brad had put on their wedding. There were personalized glasses for the guests to use for drinks and to keep as a favor. Megan designed and put together the centerpieces, the bouquets and boutineers, aisle flowers, signage, table numbers and more. Everything looked so tasteful and creative. She was amazing DIY bride!! And an extra special touch was having their two dogs be part of the wedding!

The ceremony took place in the afternoon sun with the Tetons in the background looking down on them. Just as the sun went behind the mountains, guests put on their coats and enjoyed the view with a few cocktails and appetizers. Dinner, dancing and a good time followed. And let me elaborate on the dancing part of that. It was the first time I had heard of and got to see what is known as the "money dance"!! This is where male guests pay to dance briefly with the bride. The guests loved it and it was so much fun to watch!! This was one of those weddings where you could tell the bride and groom loved getting to celebrate and spend time with their closest friends and family and the guests were so happy to get to be part of such a special day.

This wedding was so much fun to be a part of. It was a beautiful day for two very amazing people who I was very lucky to get to know!! Thanks Megan and Brad for letting me be part of your big day!!

Not too wedding-ish. Personal touches all the way.

Leah and BradSeptember 21, 2013

For those of you that don't know, I got married this summer, on September 7 to be exact. I was really hoping that my wedding would be the last wedding that I worked on for 2013 and I could just relax and enjoy being a newly wed after that. That all changed I met Leah and Brad in May. I meet with every potential client before they book and had every intention of sending Brad and Leah to work with Lisa (my fabulous co-worker). Well I changed my mind on that about 10 minutes into our meeting. I simply adored not just Leah and Brad, but their whole "team" (Leah's mom and sister) as I came to call them through the wedding planning. First off, they are funny, the kind of dry and sarcastic humor that I can't get enough of. While I was waiting to meet them for the first time Leah called and said "Hi it's Leah, sorry we are late. We canceled the wedding. (Long pause) Just kidding! We are almost at the coffee shop." At the first meeting, Leah and Brad made it very clear that they did not want their wedding to be too "wedding-ish," too structured, too conventional or too scheduled. Since Leah was getting married two weeks after me we formed a unique bond of planning at the same time. By the time her wedding day came I felt like a friend was getting married. Actually, I think Leah summed up our time together perfectly in a note she gave me just before the ceremony in this line "I feel like we were kindred brides and am so glad you came into my life at this moment." By the way, her not too wedding-ish wedding was so filled with personal touches, here are a few highlights: wore her mother's wedding dress, groom made granola for the party favors, same photographer as Leah's parents' wedding, Jewish chuppah (of course they made it) held by friends, scheduling the wedding to not start on time and mother-daugther dance.
