“What was your favorite wedding?’ is a difficult question to answer because I have had the great fortune to work with so many clients who are truly happy and in love and focused on the “right” part of the wedding…the relationship with their spouse. My favorite wedding memories are favorites because of the people I’ve worked with, not because they’ve had a million dollars to spend on flowers and fireworks.
Here are just a few of my favorite couples and families…you know who you are!
My Lake Geneva couple…We worked together for over a year to plan their casually elegant, family-oriented wedding. My favorite part of this wedding was watching the bride and groom look at one another like they couldn’t believe how lucky they were to have found someone so special. Their love truly inspires me!
My golf-obsessed family…Your fun-loving spirit and positive energy made this wedding a complete blast to plan and execute. I felt like a member of the family on the wedding day. One of many favorite parts of this wedding was listening to the bride toast her father, “Big Papa P,” and dance a Conga Line in his honor. It’s not something that we typically see at weddings, but it was adorable!
My sarcastic-family…This bride and her family have such a hilarious relationship. I hope someday to have something similar with my own children. You can tell that they truly enjoy being together and that they get one another’s sense of humor. They communicate back and forth with hysterical one-liners. Love it!
My laid-back North Shore couple…They completely trusted me and my team and they let us do our job. The bride was so relaxed on the wedding day that she enjoyed every second. She took the time to thank us repeatedly and I appreciated it so much.
My Mother’s Day Weekend couple…They were so excited to be married that they didn’t even realize how lucky they were to be getting married at one of the most fabulous private clubs in Chicago. Everything about the wedding was top-notch, but they were only focused on one another. And, they had the cutest first dance!
My January couple…whose wedding day was so perfectly “them” that I could cry! The groom had to step in and do a lot of the planning since the bride worked full-time and was in graduate school. He did a great job!
My Boating family…I worked with the mother of the bride mostly to coordinate her daughter’s beautiful wedding. She was a loving mom who put such care into carefully choosing every aspect of her little girl’s big day. It was the sweetest gift.
There are many, many more, but I’m sure you’re tired of reading! I am so lucky to have the chance to be a part of my wonderful clients’ lives.
Thank you everyone!!
