Had the pleasure of stepping back into an old comfortable pair of shoes as an onsite coordinator for a most amazing couple and a truly wonderful wedding. And of course Shore Catering provided the utmost superb catering with their mouthwatering menu, professional servers and flawless service. Ocean Tents erected absolutely elegant tents and lighting. Stricktly 60's Band and Erich the DJ provided musical ambiance and NRG Videography and BluRevision Media Photography captured their every moment. But what truly stood out is the Bride (and Grooms) detail to every entity of their special day. No detail was neglected. Truly made my task seem flawless, not to mention their wedding look spectacular.
I arrived the morning of, and there she was, very meticulously inserting fresh eucalyptus and lavender into the chuppha.....I asked if she would like me to take care of that and she responded with, I am good, it is relaxing!
That was the least of detailed tasks. From the welcome board for guests to the handmade built bar(by the groom) that their guests self poured their beer from to the home growing of herbs and the trip to the NY flower market few days prior to pick the appropriate flowers for the full length runner centerpieces across the beautiful wood tables. To 7 months of visiting the Collingswood Flea Market to collect vintage glasses as guest favors (and to drink their cocktails from) and decorative accessories to pot the herbs in. The comfort station that supplied flip flops, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray for guests (and the umbrellas, which were briefly needed).
And I mustn't forget to mention the interactive creativity for the guests. Their names and table were attached to a dart and in turn the dart was to pop balloons filled with paint to create a piece of artwork to adorn the new Mr. and Mrs. walls. Instead of a guest book sign in, guests signed a guitar that also will become a decorative accessory for the couple's home.
A most wonderful DIY wedding! We wish them the best and thank you for having us!!!
