About The Wedding
Kelsey's parents came to me for help with Kelsey and Charles's wedding; after having planned her sister's wedding a few years ago, they knew right away that they wanted a wedding coordinator. Kelsey is a nurse and Charles is finishing up medical school, so they were glad to have Casey and Tom's help! We planned an easy-going, laid-back celebration, just perfect for Kelsey and Charles. The simple ceremony took place at Glenn Memorial in Decatur, and having completed all the photos beforehand, we were able to maximize our time in the Garden. We took advantage of the beautiful weather, and got some fun shots of the wedding party, while the guests relaxed in Cox Courtyard and enjoyed their surroundings. After the wedding party danced in, the party really kicked off as guests enjoyed buffet stations, the band and the photo booth. Kelsey's mom had fun creating cute signage and a photo table for guests to enjoy, and everyone got a koozie as a souvenir. At last it was time for the departure, and we waved them off with glowsticks, which beautifully matched the glowing Chihuly fountain!


My Favorite Detail
This was really pure luck, not anything we did, but in Cox Courtyard there is a topiary of a giant, shaggy dog that is probably the most adorable thing I have ever seen in the Garden. Kelsey said it reminded her of her sweet pup, Cooper. Since we were all sad he could not actually attend the wedding, we decided the topiary represented him!


My Favorite Moment
I usually encourage brides to have hair and makeup come to them, but Salon Modello was such a cute and cozy spot and they did a fabulous job! We had some time to relax after the girls were done and before the bus came to get us, and it was such a lovely time for Kelsey to catch her breath before the whirlwind.

Comments From The Family
"We were extremely happy with Daria/Circle of Love Weddings as our wedding planner. She professionally scheduled and coordinated all the details, keeping us informed and on track with the vendors and all of the many tasks. I happen to be a project manager who implements multi-million dollar projects and I was very impressed with her organizational skills, scheduling and especially the good relationship she has with all of the vendors we used. While we contracted with our vendors directly, Daria gave us excellent suggestions and recommendations on all the various services we contracted. On the day of the wedding we were able to relax and enjoy it as she took charge of all of the details and the result was, according to our daughter, 'the best day of her life.' We recommend Daria and Circle of Love most highly." Tom Van Camp, Father of the Bride
