Tina & Matt contacted me in February after just having gotten engaged on the beaches of Florida. They were ready for this wedding back in February. They quickly set the date for 6 months out and we got working! We had so much fun putting this wonderful wedding together. They decided on a candle lit ceremony & a heavy hor d'ourve type reception. This wedding was so romantic and beautiful!! Tara at Sweet Pea's floral did an amazing job on all of the flowers and decor, the mantels were gorgeous and the candelabras that framed the alter and adorned the parents tables were breathtaking. This is the second wedding this year that I have been apart of that have replaced the unity candle ceremony with the stone blessings, such a neat idea and really brings in your guests to your ceremony!!

A few of my favorite vendors helped to make this a wonderful wedding to be apart of. Nothing however could replace the fun I had planning with Matt & Tina EVERY TIME we got together for a meeting.

Congratulations to you two, thank you so much for hiring me to help you plan a unforgettable Wedding. I wish you the best of luck and many year of happiness together!!

Call me when you are back from Cabo for wine & cookies!! (hopefully you got the kitchen aid to make massive amounts of those yummy cookies)

Sharla & Jeremy hired me for a full planning package over a year ago and have we had fun planning this wedding. Sharla was so much fun to be around with her easy going, eccentric personality. From the beginning of planning Sharla knew she wanted a Wedding day that was fun, new and playful. We searched high and low for a ceremony location that was different and fun downtown, she decided on Cafe Lurcat downtown across from Loring park. The location could not have been better for this couple!! The reception then moved to the sheik FIVE Event Center which is a renovated Precinct, every where you turn in the building has amazing texture, design and decor!! I can not wait to see some of Soul Cam's shots from their reception!

Christina Marie's ventured out into a new branch of the Wedding industry, we did all of the bridal flowers for this Wedding! Sharla was a bride who was simple in her flower taste and did not want to spend a fortune on getting the look she wanted!! So CME took on the challenge. I am extremely excited on how they turned out and everyone loved them! CME Floral is open for business for other brides just like Sharla. CME also did all of their decor and rentals.

Because of Sharla's sassy flair we decided on Ostrich feather centerpieces and boy were they a hit, I think at one point in the night I saw someone holding one up to cheer on the bride and groom as if it were a sports finger!! I loved how well the Gold linens from Linen Effects complimented this rooms style and colors, it added a very rich and classy tone to the decor!!

Her bridesmaids dresses set the tone for the colors and style of this wedding, they were absolutely adorable and every one of these girls looked fabulous in their dresses!!

Sharla & Jeremy also decided on booking the Traveling Photo Booth to replace their guest book and guest favors!! All night people were enjoying the uniqueness that the photo booth offers. I have yet to be at a Wedding were guests don't rave about having a photo booth!!

Congratulations Sharla & Jeremy it was such a pleasure working with you both and your friends and family! I had so much fun on your Wedding day I wish we could do it again!!

More photo's to come once I get a few from Soul Cam!!
