Seeing two people you care about walk down the aisle to begin their journey as a married couple is one of the greatest moments ever. One New Year’s Eve, I got to witness two amazing people and friends say “I Do”. Not only did I get to do this as a guest, but as their Wedding Planner.
It was a very unique experience for me, in that I got to see this couple grow from dating to engaged, and engaged to married. I was part of the rehearsal dinner, the bridal shower and the stagette, but those details we will leave out of the blog to protect everyone’s identity 🙂 I can tell you one thing, that stagette was one for the memory books. So much fun! As a planner, I don’t usually get to meet the couple until after they are already engaged, so it added even more to the wedding day to have been a part of all of the festivities leading up to the wedding day.
Right from the start of the planning process for Dave & Jill, you could feel the love that completely surrounded them – from family to friends to the wedding party. This couple has a life full of people that are so excited for them to be married and they are so absolutely in love with each other.
I love a New Year’s Eve Wedding. Everyone is looking to get dressed up and celebrate – and what better way to celebrate than by seeing someone get married and be with your closest friends and family?! There were so many details in this wedding that were personal and heart felt – I teared up many times throughout this wedding.
I have to say that my favorite three favorite moments were having the Groom and his band play a set prior to the dance starting, the Groom singing the Father/Daughter dance, and the wedding video that the Bride was surprised with. I’ve never seen a wedding video where the groom did a little interview/speech about his future wife, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. All three of these moments were firsts for me as a planner, and a guest. It’s always special as a planner that you are the last person to see the bride before she walks down the aisle, and getting a picture of Jill and her Dad right in that moment was also very unforgettable moment.
This wedding is something that I will never forget – and I am so happy for this amazing couple to begin the next chapter of their life.
I cannot wait to see the full wedding album of photos. Martine Sansoucy was absolutely amazing!!! The Earl’s Wine Cellar pic and the pic of Dave & Jill with their fur baby, Maui, have to be my two faves.
Jill & Dave did such a good job with all of the details that made guests feel welcome, and a part of their journey together. The venue looked absolutely stunning, the food was delicious, and the photo booth was a perfect touch.
