Wedding Weekend

October 27, 2009

I don’t think most people realize how draining weddings are even when it’s your job to plan them. Even with a couple of weddings under my belt and only assisting on the ceremony and reception (this particular wedding had an after-party as well) I was still completely exhausted with feet and back aching not just that night but the entire day following. Even Judy, who’d been coordinating weddings and huge events for years now with hundreds and hundreds on her resume, she says she feels the same way after afterwards:
completely drained.

Even with the sore feet and necessary 24hour nap following, I love helping coordinate everything. There’s a definite rush to it and seeing everything come together beautifully in the end is an amazing feeling.

I didn’t meet Lisa & Rob until their wedding on saturday but was involved in helping with the planning on their wedding for months and even designed their menus for the reception. They are such an amazing couple. Even with all of the things they went through during their planning process they are such great people and could not have been better people to help their wedding-day dreams come true.

I just wanted to share a few of the photos that the super talented Adrienne from Element Photography got.


The ceremony and recception were both held at Marsha Brown’s Restaurant in New Hope, PA. The restaurant used to be a church which made it so interesting and unique.


You’d never guess I was running around fixing tables as guests were coming up the stairs, huh?


I am becoming a semi-professional candy-bar designer from all these wedding recently.


Don’t you love this photo Adrienne got of the couple? so cute.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog.

    Your job must be exciting yet extremely stressful at the same time. But that’s a good thing. Right? What goes through your mind when you’re at the event? Do you feel like getting married (again?)? Or do you just wish going home? Haha.

      It can be stressful (especially when you end up doing the job that the serving staff was supposed to do, plus your own job!) but it’s great at the same time. Once the bride gets to the end of the isle not much really matters anymore, everyone’s happy and forget all the tiny little things they stressed over.

      Interesting question, I actually don’t think to much about getting married myself, I’m usually thinking about other things we might have been able to do to make everything better. guess its the perfectionist in me :-)
