As they walked away, Sherri leaned into me and said, "You are fabulous."
Cheryl emailed me the following Monday and booked our services. We are so happy they did!
With a guest count of 230 people and a budget of $17,000, Jamie got the wedding of her dreams.
We started with the dessert reception concept. Jamie did a great job of informing her guests to eat dinner before her 7:30 p.m. wedding with dessert reception immediately following.
Larkins kept the menu simple of just desserts, coffee, wine, champagne, and beer. Oh, and a massive wedding cake (over 3 feet tall!) from Hollys Cakes.
Jamie told me she really wanted peacock feathers and candles incorporated into her big day. Peacock feathers were used on the invitations, the out of town guest bags, the guest book and pens, in every program, and even on the cake. B&R Events made the men in the bridal party peacock feather boutonnieres, while Dahlia incorporated 100 feathers into the bridesmaid bouquets, Jamie's bouquet, and an alter arrangement.
We decided that we would give the two areas of the Loft two distinctive feels- the ceremony area would be dark and candle (and luminary) lit and romantic and the reception area would have a modern feel. Jamie and Russell had the most fun favors- a photo booth from Shutterbooth!
93 candles, 42 luminaries, and a single spot light were the only sources of light for Jamie and Russell's 7:30 ceremony. DJ EZ and I were on the phone during the entire ceremony to keep the music perfectly timed (the BB is so much easier than a walkie-talkie).
