It's Wedding Wednesday - Recap Style!

As most of you know, I've been planning and coordinating my VERY first client's wedding now, almost exactly a year ago, I started!
She was a fun, DIY, budget bride...with lots of COLOR behind her vision.
I've shared along the way everything...
from our dream boards, to the dresses, to the venues.

The past Saturday, was THE big day!
There were a few minor issues throughout the day...
but almost ALL of the day was perfect!
From the singers at the church, she walked down the aisle to "So Amazing" by Luther Vandross, performed by an amazing vocalist...to the jumping of the broom...to the brightness & POP of the tangerine & fuschia reception venue! There was so much personalization EVERYWHERE.
An entry way of pictures, from when the couple first met
to a double dose of engagment shots!
some dancing shoes...tangerine uplighting...
a custom-made (by the groom!) card box...
and a "love is sweet" cookie buffet - with milk!
AND - there was no garter taken off, no bouquet thrown,
& DEFINITELY no money dancing!
& I was very PROUD of the bride for deciding against those OH-SO traditonal elements!

I'm going to share a few sneaks that the catering company sent me,
to hold me until the photographer sends his over!

But first, I just want to say that this entire experience, from start to finish, was a "dream" for me in so many ways. I had an idea..."I think I wanna be a wedding planner..." inspired at that time, over a year ago, by a few fun celeb planners! I NEVER imagined I would get the chance to see if my "idea" was going to be the "it" thing for me. I always seem to go in circles with what I want to be when I grow up...& decided to persue this, start LF Events, & make a go of it. Although, I have a VERY long, long way to go with my business....I'm proud of what I've accomplished in a year! I am dedicated to working harder & smarter to achieve more and more of my goals! I have met a few of the best in the business, and I let their words of motivation & inspiration continue to guide me!

....so on with a few pictures!


I will put up more pictures once I get some more!
Have a great rest of the week!
