I met Minnie and Rob in July 2011 (I was about 4.5 months pregnant). As with all initial consultations, I tell potential clients this meeting is for us to learn a little about each other and see if we all will be a good fit. I really do think that selecting a planner is almost as important as selecting your mate. Well, when I met Minnie and Rob, I knew that I wanted to be a part of their day. It was immediately apparent to me, how much they love each other. I also immediately felt so welcomed into their lives. With that first meeting, I was excited to be a part of their day.
Minnie and Rob were such a pleasure to work with because they compliment each other perfectly. Their wedding day (two weeks before Christmas) complimented them perfectly too.
Minnie (a true artist) designed and created lots of their wedding elements: bridesmaid bouquets, mom corsages, boutonnieres, the wedding program, pew flowers, ring bearer pillow, the gift card box, an activity booklet for the kids at the reception and the cake...the fabulous cake!
We truly were honored to be a part of their special day.

We love the personal touch that Minnie had added to her dress. We absolutely LOVE them!
Rob surprised Minnie by having stemless wine glasses personalized as their favors.
The cake...the FABULOUS cake!

We had a great time working with Minnie and Rob. Our team, April and Morgan, did a great job taking the lead for Minnie and Rob's wedding weekend. As I mentioned earlier, when I met Minnie and Rob I was 4.5 months pregnant. By the time we got to Minnie and Rob's wedding, I was 9+ months pregnant. My family's newest addition was born 3 days after their wedding.
