Tracie has known the Mother of the Bride, Debbie, for about 3 years from working with her in the wedding industry as she is a florist. Debbie has created beautiful flowers for my clients weddings and now she was able to create amazing flowers for her daughter Bree's wedding. I was thrilled when Debbie decided she needed to enlist in my help with rehearsal and day-of coordination services so she could try to relax, talk to guests, not worry about the schedule of events and other details that come with weddings. Debbie and her husband Ken along with Bree and Jim worked so hard to plan an amazing wedding.
They have very large yard that surrounds their farm house in Plymouth. I know they must have worked hard for months to prepare the yard as it was meticulous. If you have ever planned a tent wedding like they did then you will know you must bring everything in and I mean everything right down to the salt and pepper shakers for the tables! I started working on the event a short 3 weeks before the wedding. I think I drove her nuts (LOL) with all my emails and phone calls that were needed to make sure everything was accounted for so nothing was missed but in the end it was a fabulous day so it was all worth it!
I started the day at the home to help with set up inside the tent. Debbie had collected vintage colorful napkins that myself along with her designer friends placed at each place setting. We adorned the top of easy napkin with a sprig of lavender, made sure candles were in place, fans were ready to go and tended to other details.
I headed over to the Mill Race Chapel to being pinning the flowers on the men and then it was time to start the procession. The bridesmaids wore white dresses while Bree, the bride went totally outside the box and chose a Black Wedding Dress. She looked absolutely stunning with her birdcage veil to complete her look. Jim waiting anxiously at the aisle to get a first glimpse of his bride and boy was it worth the wait! These two are so cute together and everyone could feel the love in the air!
Once the ceremony was under way by Rev. Victoria I headed back to the house to make sure everything was in place and do a little trouble-shooting as the bartenders were texting me questions when I was on my way.
We did have some light showers just as guests started to arrive so we had to make a few minor adjustments to our seating card table which were vintage keys and then once it cleared up we were able to quickly move it back out from under the tent.
Guests started to enjoy the signature drink of Raspberry Vodka and Lemonade along with all the other selections of the evening. It was quite hot out so we did go through a lot of drinks and ice!
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Darson it was a joy to be part of your special day!
