Moody . Tropical . Dance Party

The first time I ever chatted with this darling bride, I was so nervous. I had never had another wedding planner consider me for their wedding day and I knew if I got this job, it would be the ultimate compliment! Needless to say, I got the job and I am so glad I did. Not only was it a huge compliment, but this couple was a dream to work with. The bride's vision for this wedding was so much fun. The overall look was a blend of burgundies, ivory, lush greenery and gold pineapples. I had the pleasure of designing the florals and they turned out to be some of my all time favorites. The ceremony took place on Secret Island which the guests accessed by a private catamaran ride. Dinner began with a gorgeous cheese board at each table. The brides father hand crafted each cutting board which were later gifted to the wedding party. After dinner, guests danced the night away only to take momentary breaks for the gelato that was served instead of wedding cake. My only regret with this wedding is that I didn't get to work with this couple longer!

Day Long . Tropical . Lovefest

One of the best perks of being a wedding planner is becoming friends with all the wonderful vendors I work with. The story about how I met this adorable couple is a long one, but ultimately I became friends with the bride when she and I began working together. For me it was huge when they decided they had to hire me to coordinate their super non-traditional, day long love fest. From the beginning they were clear that they wanted it to feel like a slightly jazzed up version of how they typically spend time with their family and friends. The day started with the most beautiful and emotional ceremony I have ever seen. The guests gathered around the couple as they read their personalized vows. Literally everyone was sobbing tears of happiness and joy for them (including my whole team). After the ceremony, all the guests headed down to the beach for bloody marys, musubi and hand rolls. After all the guests had a chance to take a siesta and freshen up everyone headed down the street to the reception. We designed the reception to be a casual boho lounge. While the guests sipped cocktails and swung in hammocks, the caterers grilled kabobs over an open fire pit. Between the early impromptu dancing, the most heart warming toasts and the tastiest rice crispy treats known to man, the reception was a hit! This wedding truly lived up to what Love Letter Weddings strives to accomplish with every event. It was unique, it was extremely sentimental and most important, it was a true reflection of these two beautiful people.
