Where do I begin?¬† The wedding planner’s son gets married ūüôā¬† 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.





We Are Family!

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.
