About The Wedding
Kristin lives in LA and is a TV producer. She hired me over the phone 9 months before her wedding, and I didn't meet her in person until a couple of months later! This is why Skype is so important in my business! Kristin and Eric planned an elegant and fun affair at Fernbank. After a lovely ceremony at her father's church, they rode with their wedding party in a limo bus to Fernbank, where cocktail hour was in full swing on the front terrace on a gorgeous late summer night. A highlight of the cocktail area was an oversized (I mean 8-foot-tall) chalkboard listing the reception timeline so guests were sure not to miss a thing. The guests couldn't wait to get inside to try all of the stations provided by Bold Catering (including the ever-popular mac and cheese) and ooh and aah over the gorgeous decor by Bold Decor. We Got The Beat was fabulous - I especially loved their covers of a lot of newer songs. There were plenty of desserts to be had, including a wedding cake with three flavors, a surprise brownie cake for the groom, and mini desserts in the Star Gallery, which is a very cool room inside Fernbank that has a low-lit, starry ceiling. Kristin's mom and aunts made homemade peach jam for everyone to take home - not that they wanted to leave!
My Favorite Detail
A new idea I've seen a couple of times this season is a large wooden letter used as a guest book. They are about 3 feet tall and wide but fairly flat, so they can hang on a wall. You can paint or stain it any color, and then use paint pens to have guests sign their name or write a wish. I love it!
My Favorite Moment
The ceremony was very important to Kristin, as she was being married in her father's church. She and her mom spent a long time choosing each song and reading, and there were several solos. One of the solos Kristin chose on her own, and then later found out that when her parents were married, her dad sang that same song to her mother during the ceremony! As we were lining up to process into the church, Kristin (who had been super calm all day) and her dad both teared up when that song began. So sweet!

Comments From The Couple
"Daria is amazing - our wedding day was seamless and stress-free all because of her. She is extremely detail-oriented, experienced, and flexible - all while being very low pressure and supportive. If you want someone who is organized, on point but relaxed about it, full of helpful suggestions but very respectful of your needs/wants/vision, and completely understanding of who you and your fiancé are, hire Daria!! You won't regret it!!" ~ Kristin (bride)
