I am known for writing "handwritten thank you notes" and I love finding cute and neat cards to write those notes on .....Home Goods loves me. Each time I went to write a note to each of you I didn't know how to start and to thank you for everything you did for Kasey, Curtis as well as our family. I love working with each of you on the weddings and events that I plan but I so loved what you did for my daughter and Curtis. You guys are not only amazing but you "ROCK"!!!!
What an amazing weekend we had for our daughter's wedding Kasey and Curtis Schneider at the Oyster Farm Seafood Eatery one year ago on August 18th!
As a planner I never take complete credit for my events and weddings. I am only as success as my team....it takes a village of incredible vendors/wedding/event professionals to produce, manage and coordinate the amazing weddings that our couples dream of and expect. I pride myself on the relationships/friendships that I have created throughout the years. Through these relationships I also have the most amazing friends that care deeply about their couples who are my clients. Passion comes deep inside and it shows through our work and commitment to produce the most amazing weddings and events. My daughter's wedding was one of the amazing events that this team produced one year ago!
We planned the wedding for 11 months but we had challenges on the day of. Our day started out gorgeous with a 0 percent chance of rain. Did we need our weather plan...we didn't think so but an hour before the ceremony..the weather took a turn for the worst and the only one that was in control was God. Hurricane winds and extreme rains challenged the amazing "A" team of wedding professionals lead by Barbara Anderson owner of Style Events. Everyone worked together when weather plan A & B were not going to work and then we had plan C.
Kasey and Curtis were calm and enjoyed every moment of their day.
We are so grateful and appreciative for all the incredible wedding professional/friends that helped create an incredible day for Kasey and Curtis.
Pouring down rain and hurricane winds were our challenge but everyone worked together to make it perfect. Perfect it was!!!!
We thank each of you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!
Grant & Deb Photographers.....I love how you ask your clients do you want good or AMAZING photos? Of course they all want AMAZING but the photo at sunset is STUNNING. Thank you so much for this photo on a day full of weather challenges....it rained, it poured and we had the perfect sunset...that was not in our control but in Gods. The photography of both the Rehearsal Dinner and the Wedding were amazing. My mother comments that the photo of Kasey, Curtis and Daylee at Sunset should be on the cover of a magazine!!! We love our photography and I look forward to finally getting a canvas of the incredible sunset photo.
