Being a wedding planner, life can easily become filled with details. Details of catering, napkin colors, dress corsets, and candle sizes! It's so refreshing to be reminded by a special couple that it's all about love. Come rain or come shine this wedding could not be tainted because of how strong their foundation of love was. Jessica and Trip, you're love is contagious, inspiring, and hopeful. Your wedding was such a joy to work simply because of how joyous you two are. I can't wait to see what your happily ever after brings! XO
Now to the amazing vendors! Louie's Blue Martini is a vendor I am lucky enough to work with on a regular basis. Lou is fun, creative and professional. He is my favorite private bartender, Thanks Lou! Eileen's Cafe of Downtown Fredericksburg is one of Jessica's favorite restaurants and provided the light hor's de oeveres ** SPELLING** during cocktail hour. The zucchini bites were out of this world, Eileen! Following cocktails and appetizers was Pizza Tonight with an awesome take on a classic dish. Jess & Trip are pizza lovers, and wanted their favorite food at their reception. Rather than regular delivery, they had Pizza TOnight of Richmond come in with gourmet and specialty pizzas made from locally grown products. The pizza was cooked on a portable pizza stone which made for one ridiculously good smelling reception!
Jessica and her bridesmaid hair was done by Julie Ricketts of Fredericksburg's Downtown Salon, and her niece followed with the makeup. Pamela Mann, of Heart Star Ceremonies performed the river front ceremony. The stunning rosette style cake was piped by Trip's aunt! I still dream of that cream cheese frosting! And the evening would not have been complete without Dj Gerry Bradshaw at the head of entertainment and MC. You certainly know how to keep a party going, Gerry!
A HUGE thank you to all of the vendors. I truly look forward to the next time I work with each and everyone of you. Last but certainly not least, thank you thank you thank you to our awesome intern, Savannah, for her amazing job! It was Savannah's first wedding with us but she was more than ready to jump in with both feet! Savannah, you were fabulous!
Jessica and Trip, your wedding was just a blast. Let me know when you're ready for your vow renewal (:
Love to you both!
