[Did you miss the beginning of the 'You are cordially invited' series? If so, you can start here!]
You’re still here?! AWESOME! Can you believe we FINALLY did it??!!! The wedding’s over and it’s time for the Paaaarrrrty!
First things first, what kind of wedding would it be without a romantic first dance?!
Now let's get to the party!!
Who wants cake? I do!!! Two, in fact! HA! (And because Youtube for some reason wouldn't post this clip, I switched to Vimeo).
We can't go without tossing the bouquet and garter!!
Aaaannnd we’re off!
But friend to friend (and because I have some inquiring minds DYING to know) I’m spilling the beans on my picks for my wedding!
Vicky is the owner and event planner/coordinator. Let me tell you, If I could give her a 100 star rating, I would!! I received countless hours of consultation via phone AND in person. She is bubbly, fun, and on top of her game. (This is a HUGE compliment coming from my Type A personality). She not only met, but she and her staff exceeded my expectations. I cannot say enough good things about the facility, her, and her staff! My entire experience was AMAZING, beginning to end.
I first met Mike from researching online and asking around for referrals. Finding either a good DJ or band is a MUST for ones wedding and I was not willing to skimp out on that category. I mean, let’s face it. In almost ALL entertainment, music makes or breaks an event (my personal opinion). Not only did I immediately fall in love with Mike’s bubbly personality and ‘can do’ attitude, but he came with raving reviews and left a strong lasting impression. After booking, I found out that he was the DJ for my BFF’s wedding! HA! Great minds think alike! From the moment I signed on with Mike, he worked far beyond what was required of him. He even made our wedding favors (Cds of our songs that were meaningful in our relationship and our photo as the cd cover!) I’m telling you, you will NOT be disappointed if you should be lucky enough to be near him and book his services!
I cannot say enough good things about SCG Productions! First let me start by saying the videos posted were not even my final edits. They’re THAT good! In the midst of all my zillion moves since the wedding, I somehow lost the final copies. Leave it to me to contact the company… EIGHT YEARS LATER (for the purpose of this post)!! And do you know what?! Instead of blowing me off or trying to charge some insane price for another copy, they were prompt and went OUT of their way to try and restore my originals (which they happily are doing. I just wanted to post this for Valentines Day and with being in Germany it wasn’t going to ship here in time). Hello, amazing customer service! Okay, so moving beyond that: SCG is just one of those companies that is hard to resist! I immediately fell in love with their super hip vibe and ridiculously fun staff! I REALLY wanted video coverage of our special day, but I knew that I wasn’t down for the typical (sorry, but) boring wedding video. I believe I found these guys at The Knot and never looked back. SUPER talented crew and LOTS of fun! This was absolutely, hands down, my best purchase for our wedding. My only regret is not hiring them for the birth of our babies, our honeymoon, and every other life moment you’d want to capture. HA! (But seriously).
I met Zack during a photo shoot that he did my hair and make-up for. I immediately adored him and his work and KNEW that I wanted to try him out for up-dos. Needless to say, he impressed me in all facets and was on board for the wedding! Zack is hilarious & fun, and a hard worker. He went above and beyond what was asked of him, and even stayed all day to make sure that I looked like a princess without flaws! (And that’s not easy work! HA!) If you’re looking for an amazing updo, lots of laughter, and someone responsible, Zack is your man!
- Make-up Artist: Tiffany Cantrell
I originally found her at Van Michael Salon in Buckhead (GA) but I believe she has since freelanced her work. She is AMAZING!!! If I get her work info I will be sure to put it out there for you!
The wedding is finally over, the partying has been fun, and the beans have been spilled! Guess that’s a wrap, friends!
Thank you so much for joining in on my fairytale love story! It has been so much fun and an incredible honor to share! Thanks for sticking around! Until next time… xoxo
