More often then not we are hired anywhere from six months to a year out, with this particular wedding we were hired almost two years out, even before the couple announced their engagement! We got the rare opportunity not just to know the couple, Becca & Andrew, but also to be completely involved with their families, moreover Becca’s family. I remember the call I got from Becca, it was instant planner love!! She and Andrew were our ideal clients.
However, I had to pass the dad challenge, and all I could think was, please let Mr. Duffy like me! The call came and this planner soon fell head over heels in love with the brides parents as much as I did the bride and groom. Every now and then you get a couple that brings you into their family, immersing you into the rituals, the high and lows, and even the quirkiness, allowing us to create inside jokes like ladder-hosen, beer-hats and timeline rituals. This was that family. This was the family that at the end of the night you had to cry and laugh because it was the event of the season, not because of epic design, amazing teams, outstanding music, scrumptious food, sensational fireworks, deserts galore, as that was all there and so much more! It was because of the bond, the unique relationship that we all created together. Every person involved was able to see this family, this wedding come full circle and we were able to see not just a story being told but a whole new chapter being written!
