I vividly remember the day that Emily reached out to me about planning her wedding. My family was on a quickie summer vacation (since summers are our busy season, we can usually only get away for a couple of days at a time), and I was sitting by the pool when my phone rang. (And now that I think about it, I shouldn't have even had my phone with me, so I guess it was fate!) Emily explained that she had hired another wedding planner, had paid the deposit and never heard back from the planner again! She explained that her wedding was only three months away, that nothing had really been done, and that she had seen some of my work in Well Wed Magazine.
Honestly, I really had to think about it for a day or two. While I could tell that Emily was a really sweet girl, I was a little nervous about pulling off a fabulous event in such a short time!
Well, it turned out that Emily and Tom had chosen Jacob's Pillow as their venue, and since that's only about five minutes from my home, I felt like that was a good sign, and after speaking with her more about her vision, I knew that I had to roll up my sleeves and get to work!
Since I've been involved in the Berkshires wedding industry for quite awhile now, I knew just the people to turn to, and we ended up pulling together a great team, using the lighting/tech department at Jacob's Pillow, a really fun photographer from the Boston area and a handful of fabulous wedding professionals in the Berkshires!
All in all, everything came together perfectly...from the gold sequin table linen (at the sweetheart table) to the patterned napkins and mashed potato bar. Emily and Tom never left the dance floor and their guests all went home with smiles on their faces and cider donuts in their hand. See for yourself just how much fun we had, with these images by Kristin Chalmers Photography!
