Mission Accomplished: Tricia + Josh

For the past 3 months, I’ve been working with the most fabulous team of Tricia (bride) and Fran (MOB) to create, plan and organize her wedding for June 21st.  (Yes, we did it all in 3 months.)  Tricia and Fran were my dream team and we just had so much fun discovering Tricia’s taste and style (along with Josh’s) and putting together a wedding celebration that would truly reflect them.  When I met with them for the first time, they had selected St. Gabriel’s (in McKinney) for the ceremony and the Cotton Mill (also in McKinney) for the reception.  The church is beautiful and the Cotton Mill is just amazing with possiblities.  With fun, bright colors of pink, yellow and green, we decorated both to suit their personalities and make their special day so unique.  Here are just a few snippets:

The fountain at the Cotton Mill was filled with flowers and floating tea lights which we lit once it was dark.

More candles were hung at the entrance to light the guests way as they arrived.  (The reception started just after sunset.)

I just love this pic of the cupcake tower (even if it is blurry) which stood in place of the traditional groom’s cake.  Flavors were Strawberry with Lemon Curd filling, Chocolate with Raspberry Mousse, White with Banana Cream and Chocolate with Cookies ‘N Cream.  (Thanks to Sweet Art Bakery for these amazing morsels!)

And of course their beautiful cake, with each tier a different flavor…yum!

Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of the beautiful and yummy dessert buffet set up by Small Potatoes Catering, but trust me when I tell you it was delish!  I’m sure the photog, Photos by Suki, has some and I’m hoping she’ll share.  Also a big thanks to Creative Touch DJs for the sounds and lighting and RainFlorist Designs for the flowers.  Everyone was pleased as punch! 

Tricia and Josh, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding planning and special day.  You are wonderful people and I’m so glad we got to spend this time together.  Congratulations!

    Tricia and I feel so blessed to have stumbled upon Wendy in our choice for a wedding planner. She came highly recommended and I can, without reservation, continue to recommend her highly. From day one she was awesome and I was especially impressed with how much time she spent getting to know Tricia and discovering Tricia’s unique style and wishes. She was always available to us and we relied heavily on her suggestions and experience to guide our own decisions. It resulted in a perfect day for my darling daughter and her wonderful new husband. Wendy helped us make choices that kept us close to our budget yet still created a wedding that we will cherish forever. She brought us to some amazingly talented folks who worked hard to design a beautiful event. The greatest compliment I can pay Wendy is this…the night before the wedding, BOTH Tricia and I got a good nights sleep. Of course we did…Wendy was attending to Each and Every detail (and she really DID), so we had no worries to keep us awake. I wrestled with the decision to hire a wedding planner initially…I can tell you now, after the event, it was worth every penny! Thank you Wendy from the bottom of my heart. You are one awesome Gal !
