Awww! My Katie and Ryan! Can’t wait to share “our story”

Every engagement has a beautiful story and years of memories that came before that led to that moment – where he pops the question. But not every initial planner meeting has a “stand out story” worth repeating, but lucky enough – ours does.

So thats where OUR story begins…

We first met on Zoom, and within our first moments talking, Katie asked “is that a Vance Joy shirt your wearing?”.  Why is this such a big deal you may ask?  Because they MET at a Vance Joy concert!  My very casual wear on the other end of the screen, made for a solid connection from the first moment. The t-shirt was kismet and gave them the assurance that the universe sent me to them to be the most fitting planner/spirit guide through the wild journey of wedding planning.  Throughout our process together, they constantly told me how much they trusted me fully with this wedding stuff – the feeling was mutual!

When there were weeks (maybe months) when they were quite busy experiencing the first-time home-buying process, I would check in to see if there was a pulse on the other end. Katie was continuously remind me, “ya whatever you think is best, we trust you!”

Katie and Ryan are easy-going, hip, young & the cool ones– you know, the kind of couple that meets at a rock n’ roll show.  My casual, classy yet enjoyable, cup of tea.  Their wedding day reflected all these amazing qualities about them individually and together. The day was truly one to remember forever, every happy and energetic excited energies from all the beloved family and friends I saw. Truly nothing but the purest of smiles, in every last photo.  Being such kind individuals that they are – really showed just how loved they are, with what surrounded them on their special day.

Design wise – Katie went with classic with some twists to modern which provided such a layer of class. White and green, lush florals from Primrose and Petals, a great vendor pairing that I am so happy to have introduced. Ensuring there was a white dance floor and white draping inside the reception was a very important element that she wanted to prioritize – this touch went a long ways when looking back at the photos from the day. Down to the details of Katie’s personal attire – so elegant, clean and sharp. Not just any bride can pull off a bun the way she did – JUST BEAUTIFUL.

My goodness, I’m sad this one is over.  I love them, everyone that knows them – adores them genuinely.  Looking forward to running into them the next time Vance Joy makes his rounds in town; we can share a beer and relive the memories of their special day… and I shall never forget the day, that a concert tee – brought a bound together!
