Laura and Sven had a short engagement, we were contacted in February to help with rentals in planning their August wedding at the bride’s parent’s home. It was evident early on, that Laura knew exactly what she wanted, and nothing was more perfect than a lakeside wedding followed by dinner in the family home.
As we conversed by email to arrange all the elements she requested, as she was planning from Toronto, we quickly determined that she needed more assistance than just rentals. In early May we made a visit to her parents lakeside house, to fully understand how 90 people were going to sit inside for dinner, and meet with her parents to work through logistics of turning their property into the perfect day for their daughter. When I finally had the chance to take our boss Julia to the site the end of July, she understood why I was so excited! This family retreat was the ultimate wedding haven, we couldn’t wait for the nuptials and celebration to come! Sweeping lakeside views, a large family retreat, spacious and inviting.
Vendors were selected for all the items they required including tables, chairs, stage, backdrop, portable toilets, bus service, catering, officiant; a floor plan and detailed itinerary completed. Along with Wedding Direction Services, our team did full setup and cleanup for the event as well as providing food service staff along side Wildfire BBQ. We also added some personal touches from our design inventory at the request of Laura, including a seating chart, and a chalk thank you for photo opp.
Laura was my dream client to work with, decisive and to the point, but laid back and relaxed enough to let us work our magic and direct her day. Her parents were amazing to coordinate with, as we were essentially taking over their entire living space, it was somewhat stressful for them! The party was fabulous, we had the best time meeting their relatives and friends, including the grooms family that traveled overseas for the celebration. Lots of love and happiness to them!
