Brynnen & Steve

There are definitely times when I feel like I am a part of something extra special – every wedding is special, but this one just had that extra special touch where you could tell just how meaningful it was to everyone involved.  Three sisters Brynnen had babysat for sang and played pre-lude music;  each of her sisters sang beautiful songs – one for the bridal party and another during the unity tradition, while one of her oldest childhood friends played the guitar. Brynnen couldn’t stand the thought of not watching her sister sing during the bridal parties entrance, so she hid behind a large tree and peeked out. Tears were flowing before the ceremony even began!

The ceremony tree’s large extending branch, used to hang photo’s of family, created a gorgeous backdrop for this sweet wedding. The reception took place under a tent in the Manor’s gardens. We hung a lovely newspaper heart and strands of homemade musical page cutouts behind the head table. One each table were pink French toile runners, with carefully coordinated vintage bottles and heirloom family doilies.  Each place setting had gorgeous menu cards, with the head table using beautiful family china. We adored the cute chalkboard bar sign and timeline (done by the crafty bride!). Behind the scenes, we coordinated with Cynthia Moriarty to ensure perfect timing for the French cuisine, served family style. Once dancing begun, we placed out favors of Herb d’Provence and lavender sachets. And it was time for some late night snacks! You could just feel how special this day was, not only to Brynnen & Steve, but to their families. The evening finished with a fun Sparkler Circle sendoff!

Accolades from the bride:

I just wanted to thank YOU. I’m sure you can imagine what a challenge it is to hand over your ‘vision’ for the wedding when you’ve worked so hard on every little detail. Thanks to you, I showed up on the day of feeling completely relaxed and confident because I knew you had it under control. I felt no stress and just loved every minute of the day!

We all really enjoyed working with you and getting to know you. Even some of our friends and family members commented about how sweet you were and how perfectly you had things handled at all times!

Thank you for helping to make sure things went off without a hitch and that everything was as perfect as I imagined…I honestly don’t think things could have been more wonderful or more perfect, even with the rain!
