Mike and I are heading out on our honeymoon soon, but I just need to tell you all something. From the bottom of my heart thank you. I know why Debra recommended each and every one of you. Our wedding yesterday was beyond breathtaking and above what I could even imagine. I wish I had more time to e-mail you individually, but this will have to do:
Shelley - You incorporated everything I asked for into the floral decorations and bouquets. The bridesmaids and I could not stop talking about how gorgeous they were. The fact that you went to such depths to create my autumn vision ~ shows how dedicated you are to your craft. The wheat bunches were also a highlight, and looked better than the ones I showed you in the magazine.
Cindi and Lorenzo - I wish more than anything that the sun would have been out longer so we could have spent the whole evening taking pictures! You two have an amazing talent, and work so well together, which in turn makes your subjects comfortable and relaxed. I can not wait to see the pictures. I know they'll be great because you did such a fabulous job with the engagement ones.
Pastor Kevin - At dinner, Mike introduced me to his 8th grade science teacher, Mrs. Parker. She is now 85 years old and said she has been to more weddings than she can count. Your service yesterday was the best she has ever heard. Your voice was warm, you were funny, light hearted, and not pretentious. I couldn't agree more. Thank you for capturing our spirit in your ceremony.
Renee and Leilani - In the events leading up to the wedding I have had my hair and makeup done multiple times. None of them compared to what you did yesterday. After the ceremony Mike leaned in and told me that I looked absolutely beautiful and whoever did my hair and makeup really knew what they were doing. My bridesmaids were thrilled. Each and everyone. I couldn't have asked for a better group of girls!
Mimi & Gaby - Thank you for being one of the few vendors who actually stocks burlap, and fancy burlap at that!!! The linens were absolutely gorgeous, and really helped to tie the whole event together!
Randy and Lisa - Not one complaint about the food. NOT ONE!!! You and your crew were professional and very attentive to the guests. This was no ordinary buffet food, let me assure you!!! Not only did everything taste delicious, but you really took the time to pick menu options that were unique and autumn appropriate. Our guests were amazed.
Sarah - Talk about an amazing venue! Thank you for being such a great host. Our guests loved the grounds, and I caught glimpses of several of them wandering around the premises taking peeks and pictures. GORGEOUS!
And of course, my lovely Debra: I don't have words to express my gratitude for making our day so special and unique. I saw you hustling around working your butt off - all for our occasion and to make our day so special. You are an amazing and caring person. You have a talent unsurpassed by others in your profession for taking a theme and running with it. Your vision for our autumnal celebration was spot on! And your staff! I can not believe that one of them (Danielle?) gave me her flip flops to wear. Such a sweetheart. You picked fine helpers! Also, please please, please tell the stationer/printer (Philosophia Custom Paperie) that I have NEVER seen such amazing work in my life. I CANNOT get over how amazing the seating chart is. SERIOUSLY. Wow!!! I'm still gitty about it!!!!!!
