Emily + Tom

One of the perks of being in this business as a planner is the opportunity that we're given to really get to know our clients. I worked with such a special family last season and felt privileged and honored to be their planner. I felt like "one of the family" with this bride's family. The closeness and openness they have with each other and the way they are enjoying life is so refreshing and inspiring. They possess a unique family closeness that I can only hope for with my family as my children grow older. Emily was so easy-going and appreciative when it came to planning her wedding, as well as with the particulars that her mom and dad expressed. Her groom Tom was equally as expressive. These two are so much in love and I had so much fun working with them! I love this pic of the girls kissing their mama! In case you're wondering what this is, they are "Rolling on the River"!

My First Blog Entry!

I'm pretty excited to FINALLY be creating a blog......something I've known I needed to do for a long time! Now that the snow has melted a little and the school buses are running, my oldest son is in kindergarten, my youngest is napping and I have a little time to post! I was thrilled to hear that one of my couples, Lara and Dan Berkemeyer are a featured wedding in the Winter 2009 edition of The Knot. Check it out if you can! Their guests walked into a winter wonderland of white.......white hydrangeas, roses and icicles hanging from centerpiece arrangements done by Kevin Ford of Ford Ellington Florist , not to mention a beautiful white cake decked out in snowflakes. They had a perfect day and the weather actually cooperated with them too! Everyone was somewhat comfortable during the outdoor shots while in the middle of January. Crazy Cincinnati weather we have here.
