Christian & Brad: The Surprise Wedding, part two

Hey everyone!

I'm back with Christian and Brad's ceremony. Now during the "engagement party" portion of the night, we had the entire wall closed off between that space and the ceremony space. As the big announcement was made, we opened up that wall to reveal their beautiful ceremony area complete with white chairs and aisle runner.
Because of the extremely fun atmosphere that this created, guest were clapping and cheering as each set of bridesmaids and groomsmen walked down the aisle and they grew to a roar for the bride and groom! It was such a special ceremony and I know for a fact that the bride & groom and their guests thoroughly enjoyed every second!
Enjoy the ceremony images captured by Kori of Hudson Photography...
As a very special touch, the bride's own mother performed the ceremony.

Now for a few portraits...
The groom's daughter had a very special role in this wedding. She was adorable!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow! I'll be sharing their incredibly fun reception...

Christian & Brad: The Surprise Wedding, part one

Hey everyone!

Last weekend we had the absolutely joy of working with Christian and Brad to plan their Surprise wedding! Guests were invited to an engagement party, and after about 45 minutes we made the big surprise announcement that they would be saying "I do" in just a few short moments! Guests were thrilled, shocked, and so excited for Christian and Brad.

Today I'm going to start with the details of the day. Enjoy these beautiful images from Kori at Hudson Photography...

Guests were served passed appetizers by Event Group Catering and drinks from the bar during the "engagement party" portion of the evening.
These beautiful cards from Shindig Paperie were passed out to guests as they learned of the big surprise!
As the guests found their seats the bride and groom changed clothes.

During the ceremony {to keep the secret} the wedding cake was delivered from Rick's Bakery! flowers by Jules Design.
These "married" napkins were brought out at the bar after the ceremony! Before the ceremony guests were given "engaged" napkins with the date of their engagement.

How much fun is an surprise wedding?! Now come back tomorrow for their ceremony.

Ashley & Heath: The Video

Hey everyone!

I'm sorry for the long blogging hiatus! In the middle of our crazy wedding season, I took a family vacation and haven't had the time to blog during the hustle and bustle of the last few months. But I'm back with a lovely post to share with you!

Ashley and Heath just celebrated their first anniversary. We were so thrilled to be a part of their wedding and their Crystal Bridges celebration was absolutely perfect! Today I have their wedding video to share with you from NiLo Productions. I absolutely loved reliving this day through the video! I hope you all enjoy it...

Sweet Words

Hey everyone!

I just received this very kind review from one of our spring brides and wanted to share with you all! 

Jessica was on top of everything form the very beginning. She helped me complete my vision for our wedding and helped make so many of the decisions, both important and miniscule, along the way. Jessica and her Finishing Touches team worked well with the vendors and other volunteers who helped at the event. Her creativity and organization were essential to keeping everything on track during the planning, preparation, and execution of our wedding. Most importantly, I knew that when Jessica was on the scene, I felt confident she would take care of everything so that my family and I could relax and enjoy ourselves. - Emmarie Foerester, bride - April, 2013 

Reviews like this are why I continue to do what I do. Making things easier for our clients is our number one priority! Thank you Emmarie for the wonderful review. It means the world to me!
