What a Weekend!

Amazing. That's all I can say to describe the entire weekend...just amazing! I've finally caught up on some much needed sleep and feel ready to take on the world again. I'm going to try to re-cap the weekend step-by-step over the next couple of days.

Once again, the ever-so-fabulous Jen Kroll rocked her camera. We joke on staff that we're pretty sure Jesus lives in her lens because what she captures blows all of our minds! {Love you, Jen! Don't know what I would do without you behind that lens, girlie!}.

Assisting Jen this weekend was Ryan of Ryan Prins Photography {Ryan shoots details like no one I've ever seen. Not to mention that when he's shooting, his hips are swinging and swaying to the music and his photos are perfectly still...now that's talent!}

In addition, Jen brought in her dear friend, the uber-fabulous Bob Davis of La Storia Foto {a.k.a. the genius behind Eva Longoria's wedding photography as well as Oprah Winfrey's photographer}. Side note to all event planner who read my blog: Bob Davis is the photographer of choice for Colin Cowie and Mindy Weiss. Guess who peppered him with questions all night long :). It was like an event planners dream to ask him questions about two people in the industry I admire most!

Okay, back to business. The weekend began with a fabulous rehearsal dinner. It was small and intimate and the details and color palette were spectacular. The florals and candle collections were one of my favorite parts of the evening. I cannot begin to tell you how in love I am with Modern Day Floral! Their designs were inspired and the room would not have been the same without Jenn Ederer's creative genius! All I can say is that girl knows her stuff! She's a dream to work with and she makes my job so much easier. I'm so fortunate to be surrounded by vendors who are as passionate about their work as I am about mine. Jenn is no exception. She poured hours upon hours of love into this wedding and for that I am eternally grateful. She left no floral detail undone all weekend long and her use of candle light was like nothing I had ever seen! {Jenn, THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart! Thank you for being you, for your God-given creative talent, and for your amazing staff! Love you, girl!}.

There are so many other vendors I need to thank and I'll do that over the course of the week. But, without further adieu, here are some photos from the rehearsal dinner.

Stay tuned! There's a lot more on the way. And trust me, you won't want to miss it!

Can I just say that this weekend was absolutely amazing! As usual your attention to detail was unbelievable and the color palette was simply scrumptious! I still can't believe how flawless everything came together right down to the gorgeous chilean peony and hanging amaranthus. All the stars aligned and we were lucky enough to be a part of a magical event that people will be talking about for years to come. Hats off to you Jodi, your staff and your limitless creativity! You truly are an inspiration!!!
