Real Wedding: Samantha + Matthew at Family Farm in Oxford

Where to even start with these two!?! I first met with Sam and Matt over the phone to discuss their wedding and needs for their day. They had originally planned on just using us for our Event Management Service, but after we chatted about the infrastructure of having an outdoor reception and ceremony and the fact that they were over on the West Coast - we decided on a partial service. I actually completely forgot they were a partial service about 3 months in. We just clicked so well and I so enjoyed our phone chats and whirlwind meetings- that they felt like a full service couple.

What I LOVED about these two is how genuine they are. They are so real, and so very easy. They were easy to communicate with and were very clear on what they wanted. Which is actually very rare! They had some ideas, but once we sat down and chatted about what they loved, and what they were looking for, we were able to hone in on a modern boho vibe. We used emerald green, pops of bright pinks, gold, and lots of greenery. It was such a fun wedding design! I think that it was by far mine and Sam's favorite part!

The day came and we were blessed with really fantastic weather! We had sunny skies, gorgeous temps, and a breeze that got a little aggressive at times, but we will take that any day over rain! We opted for a clear top tent strung with market lights. It was beautiful! One of my favorite elements was their escort display. We used acrylic sheets for each table and strung it all together hanging off a tree. It was so neat and actually a very last minute decision! It was all just so perfect.

Sometimes I reflect back on clients and think about what I loved so much about them - and I think for them, it was just that they were genuine. They genuinely loved the fact that all their people were gathered in one place. They genuinely were excited that they were marrying each other. They genuinely trusted my guidance. And they genuinely had the best day and couldn't say Thank You enough.

Sam and Matt- you reaffirmed that I love what I do and I am SO immensely grateful that I got the opportunity to be a part of your day filled with genuine love. It will always be one of my favorites.
