I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. It’s a truly special thing to be involved in the planning of a friend’s wedding. I had the privilege of knowing Sarah from several years of working together in the local wedding industry, and after Alex proposed, she asked for my assistance in planning the wedding of her dreams. I couldn’t have been more honored to have had the privilege and immediately accepted.
For two years we brainstormed and planned every little detail. Seeing her vision come together the day of set up was already an exciting thing, but to be an active participant in experiencing the raw emotions was the real treat. It was a private estate wedding at another industry insider’s family home. A garden inspired cocktail party with fantastic food and drink from Blend Catering. Linens came from La Tavola and rentals from Camelot. Bright blooms were designed by florist extraordinaire, Petal to the Metal. The photo and video team consisted of Talia Ybarra Photo and Davey Hibler Films. A small bout of rain came our way just before the ceremony, but with some quick action by our team and the other fantastic vendors, we were able to salvage the gorgeous linens and lush floral arrangements from the weather. In time for guests to be seated, the weather blew over and we were able to proceed with the heartfelt vows. Guests danced the night away under a sky full of stars to music from Do Well Events.
Photographs are a fantastic way to relive your special day, but videos take you back to relive the moments in an entirely different way. Davey Hibler’s highlight reel below does just that. Grab your tissues, because it sure is sweet. Cheers to Sarah + Alex!
