Where do I begin? The wedding planner’s son gets married 🙂 After coordinating many weddings, it was my turn to be the Mother of the Groom. I enjoyed every minute and can’t thank my staff enough for helping me.
Abbie and Derrick’s wedding was a wonderful destination wedding at the beautiful French Lick Resorts, French Lick, Indiana. Both Abbie and Derrick are from Southern Indiana and wanted to be married there too. French Lick was a perfect fit; offering a great weekend getaway, beautiful gardens and lots of activity. It was the perfect spring weekend and the Southern Indiana skies were sunny and bright blue; the same color as Abbie’s bridesmaid dresses. The resort had lots of activity to offer the guests before and after the wedding. The ceremony was planned in the gardens, a sudden rain shower caused a change of location plans. No problem for us! A quick change of plans and the ceremony was held indoors overlooking the gardens.
It was so much fun hosting The Whipstitch Sallie’s Band. This quartet of ladies played folksy, Americana bluegrass music during the ceremony and entertained at the cocktail hour. After the cocktail hour, guests were invited into the Windsor Ballroom for southern Indiana cuisine and lots of dancing. The ballroom was detailed with custom linens in midnight, pewter and cornflower blue. Lots of silver accents and hydrangea adorned the tables.
We loved having the band, American Pie + “Mr. Emcee and Super DJ” Scott Evans there. What a great entertainment combo for a non stop evening of fun and celebration. Thanks to Morgan Matters Photography, Dixon Digital Photography and Love’s Reel for capturing all the special moments and festivities. It was an unforgettable weekend with a lot of special moments.
I always think it’s fun to learn more about whom you are working with. It’s interesting to find out about your background and family.
Today, I’m showing off my beloved family. Here is a picture of my husband, Mark and my children, Courtney and Derrick. There aren’t many times we are able to all be together and this was one of those rare and precious times. We span from Edinburgh to Broadripple to Hong Kong. Our times together are the best!
We love reminiscing about memories from past days including riding horses at Brown County and competing in AQHA Shows, 4H, family spring break vacations piling at least 10 kids + Mark and I into a 13 passenger van full of kids headed to Florida (we won’t talk about them using the Sun In), past beloved pets, school parties, wild ball games and family antics. You know….the list continues. Just like you, my family is a ray of sunshine in my life. I’m so thankful.
Want a WOW FACTOR for the entry of your next fabulous event? Use glow stones. These little stones are a tremendous way to add impact and wow to any entry or exit. Set a tone for your event as guests arrive with this magical path. These pebbles are non-toxic, photo-luminescent and waterproof. Just expose them to a light for 10 minutes, and they will illuminate for up to 12 hours. (No electricity required.) Mix them with pavement or gravel for a stunning surprise.
Wow, wow, wow!
We can’t wait to use them!
Isn’t it amazing how color palettes shift? One of the hottest and most requested colors for attendants apparel and linens is Cornflower Blue! A bright, sunny blue, Cornflower Blue looks great paired with almost any color. One of my brides is using it and fuchsia for her wedding palette. It will be gorgeous and happy! Make sure to look at it the next time you view linens or shop for bridal attendant dresses.
