Weekly Wrap Up

Orlando Wedding Coordinator

Hi y’all!!

I’m so happy to be back! I know the blog has been quiet but I just couldn’t see myself hiring someone to keep the blog updated. I’m back in the swing of things and busy as a bee.

This week I was glad to be back at work and enjoying my YLE couples. I had two consultations this week with my current YLE brides. Funny thing is they are both getting married at the same location and have the same background. I love my first meetings with brides on what they’re wanting for their wedding and how I can help them. Every time I meet a new couple I remember why I started. The planning process is not just about the big day, educating my couples is important also. Most couples have never been married before, or had a wedding, so a lot of the information I teach them is new. I am also constantly reminding them that the marriage after the wedding is the most important thing at the end of the day.modern calligraphy orlando

This weekend I have also had the joy to take a class on calligraphy. Jessa from Flax and Wool Designs hosted a modern calligraphy workshop and it was amazing! I was grateful that I had the opportunity to snag a space and boy was it amazing. I went in thinking I was be terrible and I wasn’t amazing BUT I did good. The techniques Jessa taught and her hands on approach made it so much easier. She was the sweetest and even did my logo – and name…and let’s face it so many charge over $100 for this. I also got to meet some amazing ladies (some I’ve met before at The Big Fake Wedding and #meetandmake with Sarah Hearts). One of those ladies told us about a cool app that lets you make your writings into digital products, super cool! The class was really great and I can’t wait for the next ones Jessa offers, you should join me too!

Weekly Wrap Up

Orlando Wedding CoordinatorHey All!

I’m so happy to be doing this weekly wrap up as it will be my last before I am out on maternity leave. I am expecting a baby very soon and I will be going on maternity leave beginning on Monday, June 29th and will return on Monday, August 3rd. Enough of that and now onto last week’s events!

Last week was a wedding week so in tradition it consisted of a lot of last minute details and phone calls. Saturday’s wedding was a long time coming as the Bride’s mom hired us last year. I’ve been working with her for close to a year prepping for Saturday and all of our hard work paid off. Some things were easier than others but like always things turned out excellent. As a coordinator I always remind my clients that I will make sure everything goes smoothly, whether it’s according to plan or not. We had rehearsal on Thursday and we were able to finalize everything. Unfortunately the forecast was saying rain which we were worried would affect the pictures but God was looking out. Our amazing photographer was able to do all the pictures before the ceremony and we did not even have to worry about outdoor pictures in the rain (she did take an amazing shot of the couple with the rainbow…be on the lookout for when those pro pics are posted on the blog. The wedding was at Ocoee Lakeshore which is a beautiful fairly new venue. One of my favorite parts of the wedding, besides the grooms amazing grandparents dance moves was the cookie bar, which is a Pittsburg tradition. I can’t say I enjoyed the couples entrance song as it was the FSU fight song LOL…Go Gators! The wedding was full of personal touches and was a DIY wedding gone RIGHT! It was family oriented and focused and I loved that aspect. Here’s a couple phone shots for you all to enjoy!

I’ll stop by and post a weekly wrap up every now and then while I’m on leave but until then enjoy the Real Wedding posts that are coming up!

Oh yes I know I am days late with this post but have mercy on me things have been go go go! Things are winding down since my maternity leave is coming up, or shall I say they are winding up! We have 2 weddings this month where we are the wedding coordinators, with our last one next weekend.

Last week we had a final venue walk through for our last June wedding next weekend. It always helps to meet with the bride to get her final vision and thoughts. Usually our final meetings result in a lot of changes and we have to go through the workbook. The wedding workbook is 11 pages of important info for the day of the wedding. It has discussion items from the caterers arrival time to details on the sand ceremony. This workbook keeps the couple and I on the same page and also reminds us to discuss even the smallest detail.

Our wedding this past weekend was amazing! There was so many small details to make it happen and so many last minute changes that on the day of really did not matter. I had an amazing team to help put it all together and worked with some of the best vendors! I am really excited to see the pro pics when they come back. This was a wedding for the books down to the bride cutting her dress, yes literally cutting it with scissors and turning it into a short dress! I love when I am able to connect with the families and friends at the wedding and that is exactly what happened, it was such a great group. {The phone shots below does it no justice!}
