You're Engaged! Selecting You Caterer

Picking up where we left off (see our tips on selecting your ceremony & reception venue and hashing out your wedding budget), your next step may be selecting your caterer. The reason we say may be, is because if you've chosen a venue with an in-house or exclusive caterer, your selection has already been made for you. 

So let's break down the different types of catering verbiage you may run into on your wedding planning journey:

Jennie & Nic's Noah's Lincolnshire Wedding - Part 1

Jennie & Nic's Noah's Lincolnshire Wedding - Part 1

t's the new year, and we're looking back at wedding's from last year! When Jennie & Nic came to us, they had a good idea of what they wanted their wedding to feel like - whimsical and romantic. They also wanted to include little nods to The Beatles throughout their wedding, since 'Across the Universe' was one of the first movies they ever watched together. It was such a pleasure to bring their wedding visions to life, and we could not have done it without the amazing Avant Gardenia. Seriously, just wait until you see these photos by Kristin La Voie Photography -- they'll just make you swoon!

You're Engaged! Selecting a Ceremony & Reception Venue!

Now on to the fun stuff! Stemming off the budget talk, we suggest picking your top three elements of a wedding day, and making them the priority. Are you foodies? Allocate more money to the food portion of your budget, and maybe a little less on floral. Is photography important? Allocate more to a photographer, and go more budget friendly with a videographer, if you choose to have one.

Hannah & Kevin's Ovation Wedding - Part 2

Hannah & Kevin's Ovation Wedding - Part 2

Welcome back! Last week we shared photos from the first half of Hannah and Kevin's wedding day, and now we're back for Part 2! The interior of their wedding venue, Ovation, veers towards an urban, industrial, masculine aesthetic, with lots of exposed brick, metal, and wood. So it was important that we bring in lush greenery elements to soften up the look. Their stationery products created by Side Street Designs included a soft greenery motif and we love these escort cards that were printed on kraft paper for a more rustic look.

Hannah & Kevin's Ovation Wedding - Part 1

Hannah and Kevin's wedding was a long time in the making! They came to me in June of 2015 with ideas of a "warm, unconventional, social, and smooth [flowing]" wedding, but opted to wait until May 2017, because that's when their dream venue next had availability! Hannah and Kevin fell in love with Ovation, a modern, industrial loft space that is off the beaten path, and yet highly sought after.
