About The Wedding
Molly and Deena were a joy to work with. They truly loved all of their vendors and took pains to make the whole planning process easy. We all wanted their day to be perfect, and it was! It's my favorite time of year for outdoor weddings, and the day could not have been more beautiful. Cator Woolford Gardens was enhanced by the brown and red color scheme. A highlight was the surprise carpet of red rose petals on the aisle that Deena ordered for Molly. After First Look photos, the guests enjoyed a personalized, intimate ceremony officiated by one of Molly's dear friends. After the ceremony, guests remained in their seats while Endive passed champagne, lemon drop shots and lemonade. Molly and Deena then stepped to the front to toast all of their guests. Cocktail hour on the lawn and a stations dinner followed. As always, the guests were enjoying the fabulous evening so much, I could hardly convince them to head up to the Atrium on the golf carts, where cake, coffee, desserts and the photo booth and DJ awaited them. Once we all arrived, Molly and Deena opened the dance floor with a choreographed dance, the result of 10 dance lessons. (Molly said one of the best decisions they made was to take 10 lessons instead of 5!) Molly and Deena departed at the end in a cloud of bubbles, as their guests cheered.
My Favorite Detail
One of their friends is an accomplished woodworker. He designed and built a custom escort card board and stand, with sweet pictures of the couple's pups inviting guests to Eat, Drink and Celebrate. The escort cards were clipped to wires with tiny clothespins. The really cool part is that Molly and Deena plan to hang the board in their home, with the photo booth pictures clipped onto the wires.
My Favorite Moment
Molly and Deena really loved all of their vendors, as I mentioned above. I've honestly never worked with a client who was more considerate and thoughtful. Molly and Deena especially wanted to let the catering staff know that they appreciated them. So we gathered everyone together before the ceremony, and Molly gave a little speech of thanks, and then she and Deena shook everyone's hand and introduced themselves. I am pretty sure none of them has ever experienced that before!

Comments From The Couple
"We are thrilled and excited about our wedding and are truly grateful that you are at the helm. From the beginning (close to a year ago) to now, hiring you was the best investment we could have made and it has paid off over and over again. We feel so much more comfortable and relaxed about our wedding day knowing you are coordinating it all. Thank you!" ~ Molly and Deena
