A Wedding: From Planning to Reality!

Hi All,

I ended 2017 with a insanely cool and beautiful New Years Eve wedding that blew my mind. There are so many elements of it that captured my heart that I don't know where to begin. The couple, Brooke and Ryan, their family, and friends are all contagiously warm and loving. It was such a pleasure to work with them. 

When I met with Brooke and her Mom, they let me know what was important to them in terms of the event design: Something glamorous and dramatic, but not over the top; moody and unexpected, yet relaxed and fun. These juxtapositions are where I love to be as a designer, so I knew we spoke the same language.  

I put together design proposal and with a few tweaks we crafted a wedding design of their dreams. Here is a drawing I made to help them envision the look:

The day of the wedding came and we began set up. As my team and I laid out the full aisle of candles, installed the chuppah, and watched the drapes go up, it became a reality. It felt so surreal to see what I had imagined in my mind come to reality in such an exact way. All the hard work and preparation had paid off. Best of all Brooke and Ryan were so happy!
